Then there was the Dunn's River Falls shoot, when the girls were photographed by Tyra in a potentially dangerous setting. And yet none of them managed to bash their heads on the rocks. Sad times. We get to see some of Tyra's photos of the already-eliminated girls. Jessie looked divine, even with half a plastic hanger in her head. Meanwhile, Laura and Kristin both struggled. Despite her backstage panel freakout (number 3 below!), Kristin continued to fail at H2T modeling and was sent home.
And then it's time for another trivia question! Laura is a certified instructor in what? The choices are Pilates, aerobics, Lamaze, and scuba diving. LAMAZE? The actual answer is Pilates, and we learn that she's been certified since 2009. A real fascinating character, that one!
In some bonus footage, we see the girls go swimming Jamaica-style -- with horses! -- because there hadn't been enough opportunity for an animal to kill Leila already. Kiara was not feeling it, because she doesn't like going deep into the ocean anyway. Leila planned to slide off of her horse's back and hang onto its tail, which is apparently something that's actually sanctioned in horse swimming. But once she got back there, the horse pooped on her! And then she was just swimming in watery poop for ages. Poor Leila should never go to the zoo. The girls next shot their Dream Come True ad, in which Nastasia's youthful exuberance was perhaps a little too pre-teen. The judges thought that her photo was too cutesy and looked like it was marketing perfume to ten year olds, and she and her glorious hair were eliminated.
And then we were down to our final three! The girls had a super high-pressure shoot with Nine West, which also happened to be Kelly's client. This led to freakout number one, obviously. But this was nothing compared to the freakout of Tyra's brain, which communicated these words to her lips during the final fashion show: "And now, their spirit-bodies must take to the runway to reclaim their mortal smizes." And oh, that final runway show. The fashions were crazy, and then Leila managed to fall... twice. So, she lost. "Curvy" Laura edged out Kiara to become America's Next Top Model, and then we were all permitted to instantly forget about her. Huzzah!
