Felicia, nineteen, from Houston is next, and she tells the panel that everyone's been calling her "baby Tyra." It's the baby fivehead that does it. Felicia sees Jaslene and Melissa as ones to watch to pick up tips and tricks, but doesn't give much credence to the rest of the bunch. And I just have to say...what is up with this girl's eyebrows? They're glowing. It's really weird. As she stomps out, she says something about her skirt being short and her booty being tight. Well, good for you, then.
Back in the girls' hangout lounge, someone asks which girls are plus-sized models, because some appear to be on the line. Sarah authoritatively says that you have to be a size 12 to 14 to be a plus-sized model, and that Whitney's perfect. Kathleen interviews that the other girls don't seem to realize that Whitney and Diana are, in fact, their competition. Isn't it a common Shakespearean convention to have, like, the raving fool make some kind of eerily omniscient prediction for the future? I'm just saying. Kathleen notes that there is a cut tonight. Oh, thank God.
The Jays meet with the girls and tell them it's cut time. Micheline interviews that she quit her job to come there, so she hopes she's getting in the house and can prove what she's got. Per usual, the girls have to run around like chickens, each trying to find her photo in a gift bag that also includes an invitation to the Mark Ecko fashion party. Kathleen interviews that butterflies are destroying her stomach right now. I wonder how modern medicine treats that condition. The twenty lucky girls who find their photos have to get dressed on the spot and go to the party. This brings about a round of screaming. There will be photographers at the party snapping shots of the girls, presumably for Tyra and the Jays to review when they make the final cut. The girls get let loose and start rummaging through the gift bags. And the winners are: Bethany, Lauren, Kathleen, Gelecia (who?), Sarah, Dionne, Heather, Chelsea (who?), Samantha, Felecia, Brittany, Natasha, Cassandra, Hannah (who?), Melissa, Jaslene, Renee, Diana, Whitney, and Jael. Sore loser Micheline says that this competition must be more about personality than looks. No duh. She says that Jael doesn't even want to be there, and that all she does is act like an idiot. Yet, Jael beat her out. It makes Micheline want to punch her. I wish she would. It's true that Micheline is a lot prettier than a good number of the girls there. I think the tattoos did her in. Jessica from Inglewood stomps out of the hotel like one of the losers on American Idol. Bethany says good riddance.
