The girls get made up. Melrose meets Linday, her personal assistant for the day. Linday looks to be about twelve. Monique goes first, and is typically wooden and ridiculous with her phone throwing. How sad that I know she's typically anything just in the first episode. Jay tells her to give him some variety, because she's too two-dimensional. He says that she's not rising to the occasion, and then yells, "Bitch! Dumb-ass!" at her. Hey, that's my job! Monique admits that she might have to work on her acting skills. Next is CariDee, who is really into her role as a dumb blonde. Her hair looks ridiculous, and does her a disservice. Jay yells, "Gorgeous! Genius!" and eventually tells her that she looks too Lucille Ball and zany. Still, it seems like she does a good job. Megg is next, and Jay tells her to give him the strung-out look. Rock & roll! Megg says that it's a stereotype but isn't true...all the time. Jay instructs her to look like a big blob, which seems to come very naturally to her. Next is Eugena, and Jay tells her to get rid of her gum. She says she has it because white girls smack gum all the time. We do not! But we are terrible dancers. Eugena has long blonde extensions. She says that she thinks that the fashion industry should portray African-Americans the way they are in everyday life, but that never happens. True, unless you are talking about Monique and the way she is in everyday life. Nobody needs to see that.
Next up is Megan, who gets to pose with a tiny dog somewhat improbably, due to its tininess, named Tyra Banks. Jay seems to love what Megan is doing, and he also loves the cute little dog. Anchal is next, posing in front of a bunch of mirrors, and Jay explains to her what a narcissist is. Jay says that he wants her to be dripping on the floor sexy. Anchal says this is hard, because she never thinks herself as beautiful. Which is perhaps, why she chose to enter a modeling competition. Next is Christian. Jay tells her to be her, and not Tyra-lite. Christian gives Jay the same pose, shot after shot, and he tells us that she has trouble being anything but a broke-down Tyra Banks. Brooke gets to be a backstabbing bitch, which she says is her complete polar opposite. Nonetheless, it was fun to play a bitch for a day. Her makeup is atrocious, and really overwhelms her face.
Casting Couch A.J. is next. Jay says that she was completely uninhibited and really looked like a model. She has to pose with a gross fat guy. She looks really great, kind of like Brenda did when she was in her sex-addict phase. Next, Jaeda is the plastic surgery addict. She has to lay on a table, which probably limits a person's posing, in all fairness. She only gives Jay one face, which is never a good thing. Next, Michelle tells us that a year ago she was pretty pessimistic about modeling and only went along with it because Amanda was so into it, and wanted to take advantage of the twin thing. But now Michelle is a lot more into it as well. We see Michelle pose as the bulimic model in a bathroom stall, and she does look creepily awesome, and a whole lot like Fiona Apple. She gets raves from Jay. Anorexic Amanda is next, and Jay says that she doesn't understand how to use her body. He tells her to spend a little mirror time.
