Meanwhile, back at home, Renee is still jawing. She's complaining that they give her stuff they know she's not going to be good at. Quite awesomely, Brittany yawns. Out of nowhere, Jaslene says that she speaks a lot with her eyes. More with the eyes and less with the mouth and we'd have a winner. Renee says that she speaks a lot with her eyes too, before giving a flippant "Whatever." Renee confessionalizes that Jaslene is getting all the cool looks, and then adds that she's got it, and can show us fierce and angry and sexy. How about class clown? Oh, right. Renee tells the other girls that if you're going to take one girl out of her element, you have to take all of them out of their elements. I would like to take Renee out of the element of oxygen. Jaslene quite correctly interviews that Renee is making a whole pile of excuses.
Tyra Mail! Jael comes prancing in wearing a wig and a g-string and nothing else. Classy! Cassandra says that some people are not comfortable with that, and we cut to Samantha. Jael puts the giant Tyra Mail envelope over her chest, which is pretty hilarious. In any case, someone is going home tomorrow. Samantha interviews that there is a time and place to have fun, but that you don't have to be like that all the time. She's a serious little thing, isn't she? She says that it's really hard to explain how you can feel so alone in a house with so many people. Oh, poor Samantha. Meanwhile, Natasha relives how she didn't know what a teacher's pet was. She says that she's always nervous before an elimination, but even more so now that her photo shoot didn't go so well. She worries that she might go home, and we head to commercials.
We enter judging with a photo of Tyra as the class madam. She tells the girls that they all look smashing, which is somewhat unusual at this point in the competition. There are prizes, there are judges. This season, Ms. J. has some ruffle theme, whereby each week he puts on a ruffle in memory of the girl who got eliminated. If he really wanted to get our attention, he would cut off a digit each week. The way Tyra explains the whole thing, you can tell that even she thinks it's dumb. That's a bad sign. Roy Campbell is the guest judge. Tyra says that she's known him since she was seventeen, and that he wrote the very first article about her in a fashion magazine.
Sarah is up first for her individual evaluation. I covet her dress. Nigel thinks that the class flirt is a great role for her, because of her natural flirtatious tendencies. Twiggy thinks it's too sexy, and brings up the fine line between fashion and men's magazines. Tyra gives Mr. Jay's feedback, which was that Sarah overthinks and needs to trust her instincts.
