The next photo shoot involved the girls being tossed up in the air as cheerleaders with a high fashion edge. A lot of girls struggled with this shoot -- Laura's fear of heights came into play, while Allyssa made one of the male cheerleaders who was doing the tossing bleed from the head. But in the end Leila was eliminated in something of a shocker, thus giving her a comeback opportunity later. Meanwhile, in never before seen footage, the previously eliminated girls -- Jessie, Darian and Destiny -- were brainstorming about who might have been eliminated. Jessie proposed that it could be "one of the heavier girls," you know, because of the tossing in the air and stuff. They were all totally shocked when Leila walked through the door or, rather, swam through it in a puddle of tears. They instantly became a hug-pod, and Destiny even told Leila that she was so much better than the rest of them. Both Destiny and Jessie thought that Leila was going to win, and then assured her that she actually still could.
Tyra tells us that it wouldn't be Top Model without some "rigorous" challenges to test what the girls are made of. This year the rigor involved swinging on a hoop like a stripper, and having perfect strangers throw fish and chips at them. But we didn't see what they were up against when the challenges continued in their very own home. Apparently there was something of a spider infestation, and these new roommates enjoyed hanging out on Brittany's bed. They must have heard of her creature-loving ways through the DUN (Disney Underground Network). It is possible that Allyssa killed some spiders with a Bible. And Kiara took a practical approach to the situation, saying that no one really enjoys spiders, but if you see one you have to do something. OR you just live and let live, and they kill all your other bugs for you. Except for the ones that will kill you, spiders are our friends!
