Keenyah was a bit stiff and didn't move during her test, and she was the same on "aloof" and "passion." Nigel loves Keenyah's photo and says that it has an elegance that elephants themselves have despite their size. Tyra says that they had to do a lot of body retouching on Keenyah's shot. Keenyah gets a little defensive and starts to explain her eating habits, and Janice yells, "Stop! If you're sporting a gut, then you turn to the side and disguise it." Tyra says that though Keenyah is a thin girl in the real world, the fashion industry is extreme, despite Tyra's efforts to make the saying "Fat is where it's at" stick. Tyra says that it comes down to choices and that she, herself, will make it work when she has to. She says that now she can (and does, we all might add) eat whatever the hell she wants to because she's paid her dues and earned the right to retouching. Janice says that she's seen Tyra eating burgers. Tyra says she does and then -- get ready for it -- Janice points to Tyra with a mild sneer of disgust and just says, "She eats those...ribs." And though I would love it, I totally don't think this is a shout-out. Rather, I think that Janice and I have achieved some scary sort of mind meld, which is much more exciting and also a little bit terrifying.
Christina looked a little crazy in her "happiness" pose, and passionless during "passion." Her photo gets rave reviews, Janice saying its the best she's ever taken. Gerta says that Christina's weak spot is her mouth. Tyra then tells Christina that she's going to teach her a trick to give her a full top lip, and that she does not, in fact, need surgery. She rips off a Post-It, folds it up, and tells Christina to stick it under her top lip. Janice starts to scream, "This is what the industry's all about! Chicken cutlets for the breasts! Even men stick fake penises down there for underwear jobs!" And seriously, that must go on the highlight reel. You may not be able to tell how awesome it was just from reading it but trust me, it ruled. Anyway, Christina looks retarded. And my girlfriend and I tried this trick and agreed that we looked equally ridiculous. It doesn't really work, no matter what Tyra says. And now I'm off to buy some chicken cutlets.
