Last but not least is Natasha. Jay tells her that the way she's standing makes her look like an ape. But, perhaps, the first ape to be sent into space. Jay tells her to have fun with it, and not to look so much like a Russian pantomime. Natasha explains to us that English is her second language, and that's why it was harder for her to memorize the lines than any of the other girls. Don't even sing me that song until you've had staples in your head, okay, Gorbachev? Jay helpfully tells Natasha that she needs to have an easy, breezy nature from the beginning. And then, something seems to click and Natasha gets it. Her next take is great, and Jay says that although her Australian accent left a little to be desired, she was genius. Natasha is quite happy as usual.
In the car home, the girls discuss the day. Jael says that it was crazy for her, I guess because she did so poorly. She says that she had the whole thing memorized, but once they brought in the cue cards, it threw her off. Jaslene says that's true for a lot of people. Natasha adds that she doesn't want anybody to go home, including herself. Jael interviews that she doesn't want to go home, because she's not finished sending joy to the universe. Oh, Jael. Yes, you are. Trust me. Renee says to Jael that you never know -- the judges might like Jael's picture. She adds that they might hate hers and wonder what she was doing with her crazy Crocodile Hunter accent.
Suddenly, someone notices that Brittany's crying and asks what's the matter. They're probably all so used to the waterworks that it just blends into the background by now. Natasha says that Brittany's so gorgeous that it doesn't matter how she did today. Aw, that's awfully nice of her to say. Brittany says that she's not upset about her performance, because she did the best she can. Rather, she seems to be having a little PTSS: post-traumatic staple syndrome. She can't believe that her accident is still affecting her five years later, and she says that it sucks. Hey, there are people with metal plates in their heads, and you don't hear them whining every time they set off the metal detector at the airport, okay? Buck up, Britters. With that, we head to commercials.
We return to a photo of Tyra in the bush. Thankfully it's not a photo of Tyra in the Bush Administration, though with her career trajectory I suppose anything's possible. She actually looks really pretty at panel -- she has on a lovely blue dress, and long straight hair with no sort of head wrap or do-rag getting in the way. And I don't think they ever show her from the waist down. Not that that has anything to do with it. In any case, good work, Tyra! She makes the girls give a "holla!" for themselves. Maybe this was filmed around the time that she went undercover in Chingy's entourage? As a didgeridoo plays in the background yet again, Tyra explains that there are prizes, and there are judges. The guest judge for the day is Erika Heynatz, which gives Tyra the perfect opportunity to say that Top Model went from being just a twinkle in her cleavage to a international phenomenon in over 120 countries. Erika says that it's a huge success there. I bet that's because they show boobs. I mean, don't you think more people here would watch it if that were the case?
