When we return, the girls enter Panel. There are prizes, there are judges. The guest judge is Siri Udomritthiruj of Elle Thailand. The judging challenge is for the girls to express three emotions using only their body. They have to wear masks, too. Furonda is first, and Tyra says, "The first emotion..." Furonda busts into a pose, and Tyra tells her to wait because she didn't even give the first emotion yet. Heh. Miss J. asks what pose that was. With the finger pointing diagonally in the air, I would guess it was from Saturday Night Fever. The first emotion is sensuality. Furonda looks crazy. Actually, everyone looks kind of crazy. Joanie is still stuck on her Thai dance moves. The second emotion is despair. I would just pretend that I was looking at Jade for that one. The third emotion is compassion. That is the one I would do least well on, because recapping this show for four seasons has totally sapped my ability to be nice to anyone.
The girls return in front of Panel for their evaluations. Furonda is first. Miss J. says that her sensuality was "ouch," but Nigel appreciated her great sense of spirit and high energy. Tyra says that Furonda did anything, and would have busted into a pose if she had said, "Poopoompalaka." Jade thinks, "That's a type of spinach, right?" Furonda's photo is beautiful according to Nigel and Twiggy, though Miss J. says that she could have been more elegant in her legs. Tyra says that Furonda's film was very inconsistent. She has no medium -- she is either great or horrible. Siri says that this is bad from a magazine's the point of view.
Sara got each emotion very clearly, according to Tyra, but didn't look like a model. She asks whether Sara was thinking "model," and Sara says that she wasn't. Nigel: "Just a little memo; this is a modeling competition." Nice. Sara's photo is beautiful, and Twiggy says that it has none of her usual gangly discomfort. Tyra notes that Jay said Sara copied some of Joanie's poses and didn't make them her own. Miss J. tells Sara that if she's going to copy, she needs to do it in such a way that it clearly outshines what the other person has done. Well, if I must say, my pair of pinstripe jeans were tri-colored and pretty fabulous, and I was a lot skinnier. I feel better about that whole situation now. Tyra says that the phrase is "Steal from the best, and make it your own." Perhaps Tyra got a book deal when she was seventeen, too.
