Next is Tanika, who says that she had a rough time growing up because her mother is white. Tanika was the only biracial girl living in the ghetto. She believed what her mother told her about the other nappy-headed girls being jealous, and implies that they picked on her because they didn't have good hair. Miss J., himself a nappy-headed woman, asks Tanika to define "good hair." She talks about kitchen and buckshots, and I don't know what that means. I don't think she gets that she insulted at least two-thirds of the panel. Tyra is on the fence about Tanika.
Next is crying Andrea, who grew up on a farm making wine. So, a vineyard, then? She says that her mom is her best friend and that her dad is her hero, and she cries every time she thinks about them because of how they're so loving and supportive. O...kay. Tyra asks if Andrea could handle being away from her family, and she admits that she's bound to cry a lot. We see her in a swimsuit, and she is problematically skinny. She also has little cuts and bruises and marks all over her legs, which is nasty. In an interview, she weeps and says that opportunities like this don't come to people where she's from. Like, I don't know, take a train somewhere then. Miss J. says that she needs to eat something besides grapes.
Next is Leah, nineteen, from Boca Raton, who sets up the crazy losers montage. You know the one: contestants we never see again do something stupid. Leah fancies herself the best go-go dancer ever and sets about proving it to the panel. There is some butt shaking. Someone appears to walk in like a cockroach while another girl hisses. Andrea shows us how she squashes grapes with her nasty, scabby feet. Note to self: find name of vineyard, do not buy wine, avoid choking on piece of toenail.
