And I think Eva's "My Life As a Cover Girl" is a repeat again. She says at one point, "The overwhelmingness....that has come over me...about being a Cover Girl...it's so beyond emotional, it's so beyond physical, it's so beyond anything tangible." This is what happens when you take public speaking lessons from Tyra.
Fashion show! Jay says emphatically, "Let's give them a show. Give them a show." Kahlen says that she's wondering if she'll fall off of the runway because she's kind of clumsy. Naima interviews again that she has anxiety and butterflies and is ready to go. Once again, she's looking very happy. The show begins, and from the front row Janice yells, "Work it!" The uncut version of that sentence was, "You'll never be able to work it like me! The world's first supermodel! Bitches!" Girls walk the runway in swimsuits. Naima goes out, and you know what she is? Fierce. She says that she can see her feet in the water below her, and that she feels superhuman. Kahlen walks and...I don't know. I know everyone talks about her runway walk, but I kind of feel like she looks like she has a bum leg that she has to drag behind her. Nonetheless, Janice yells, "That's my girl!" and points at her. And Janice's endorsement really is the kiss of death. Another clue! Kahlen says that she hit her first pose and got a huge adrenaline rush and felt her heart about to explode. More backstage chaos. Naima walks in a gown and says that she can hear the judges screaming. Kahlen walks and says that not only is she stomping on all the people who didn't believe in her, she's stomping on the girl who didn't believe in herself. Oh, modeling as a metaphor. I have had enough of you.
And now, it's time for the final walk. Naima says, "I'm gonna walk down the runway, and look Kahlen dead in her eyes, and say, 'Look, bitch, this is what I have to offer.'" I love the competitive streak! They walk at the same time in yet another skimpy swimsuit. Naima is again full of fierceness, and Kahlen is full of dull model-dom. The girls walk out in the finale, and Naima waves her arms around a lot. In an interview, Kahlen says tearily that she's so full of emotion during the final walk that she can't even hold the beat when she's clapping. Oh, honey, no, that's just because you're a big whitey. The audience gives a standing ovation and Kahlen and Naima stand under falling water and dance around.
