The girls head to a giant park or wilderness preserve or something, where they meet Jay Manuel. He is dressed in a camouflage tee, and over it he wears a button-down shirt with the collar up. It's like a walking argument for not letting gays in the military. He tells them that instead of the standard photo shoot for the day, the girls are going to have to do a commercial. The twist? They have to do it with a thick Australian accent. Natasha is nervous about this whole thing, because she already has accent enough to deal with. The premise of the commercial is that a photographer is waiting for a kangaroo to come by so he can take a picture of it, but then the girls show up with their dramatic eyes laden in Cover Girl makeup. That distracts the photographer, and he starts shooting the girls instead. If only they changed "photographer" to "hunter," I would be down with this concept.
The girls head to hair and makeup, where they get their scripts and some tips on how to pronounce words Aussie-style. And, may I add (thanks to an email from hawk-eyed viewer Sam), the makeup artists aren't even using Cover Girl products! Sutan has some explaining to do. Brittany interviews that she's nervous about her short-term memory affecting her, but that it just takes practice and time.
Renee is up first. Jay tells her to go over the top and let him pull her back. So if she wants to do a Crocodile Hunter voice (RIP), she should go for it. And go for it she does! Her voice is to the nerves like a stingray is to the heart. And, she needs cue cards. She seems to do pretty well once she has them, and she also looks totally gorgeous. Next is Dionne. She's kind of a disaster. The Aussie accent is a wash, and she can't remember her lines. Jay says that he was wowed when Dionne first walked onto the set, but her performance was like one run-on sentence. A sheep baas its disapproval.
Jael interviews that the best part of this shoot is that she's surrounded by nature and is finally at home, and she gets to run free. I'm sorry, but they don't have "outside" in L.A.? Jay tells Jael to make her reading as conversational as possible and act like she's talking to someone. She seems to be having some difficulty, and she interviews that she struggled with the commercial because it was so over the top in "fake happiness." Jay does an awesome impression of Jael's jerky body language, which makes her crack up in a really unattractive way. He says that he loved Jael's energy, but they really struggled to get a good line read out of her.
