As one may have predicted, everyone except for Jeremy and Nina is totally sick of Jourdan. She's annoying and, according to Renee, has the personality of a toenail clipping. Wait, strike that, her personality is LESS THAN that of a toenail clipping. Things get worse when phone time is doled out, and Jourdan takes up quite a bit more than her initially allotted ten minutes assuring her boyfriend that the naked photos he saw of her on the internet weren't really naked, and also telling him that her maturity level is so much higher than the others in the house. Apparently as the occupant of the Tyra Suite she can technically take as long as she wants on the phone, but every other weekly winner before has ensured that everyone in the house gets a fair turn. Everyone is pissed, especially Renee who threatens to slap her but walks away before she can really get too tempted. Meanwhile, Chris is just happy that someone else is the focus of the house's ire.
Speaking of ire, the challenge for the week has the models going to Hollywood and being fashion correspondents for Smize TV, which is a thing that does not actually exist. I HOPE. They have to interview regular folk from the street as Bryanboy and special guest Perez Hilton talk into their earpiece and tell them what to ask and do. Of course Perez makes them do gross stuff, which is how Jeremy winds up taking his pants off. Marvin takes a stand against Perez and says he doesn't want to bash anyone just to become notable on the internet, and one assumes that includes drawing dicks on photos of strangers. He lands in the bottom, along with Jiana even though I thought she did fine. Jeremy wins the challenge, which likely has something to do with the fact that he was nearly naked, and chooses Jourdan to accompany him on a romantic dinner. Once there, she whines about the earlier conflict in the house as Jeremy says he would have made sure that everybody got time to talk. In other news, have you heard that Jourdan was married when she was 18 and divorced that same year? I'm not sure if she's mentioned it before.
The photo shoot is actually a commercial shoot for Questionable Body Spray, in which the models pair up, cross dress, and kiss. Cory is naturally quite excited about this challenge, and his drag queen experience helps him give serious corporate business lady realness. His partner Alex doesn't fare so well, except for the fact that they have a respectable but not grody kiss. Renee begs partner Marvin not to be weird, and in turn he grabs her ass and licks her face. She's shocked about the fact that she actually likes it. Phil and Jiana are paired up, which is no surprise given the focus on their maybe-possibly-not-really-but-sort-of relationship. Others (and Jiana herself) worry that she's spending too much time being confused when Phil says he wants to kiss her and then talks about missing his girlfriend, and not enough time becoming a better model. The fact that Phil throws some tongue into their commercial kiss likely does not help matters. Chris and Nina don't make out with the ferocity expected, while Kanani and Don both kill it.
And then there's Jourdan and Jeremy, as a goth couple. Quoth Jourdan: "I literally come from a town that...it's just white people. And maybe some Hispanics. So I had no idea what gothic is." Does this bitch seriously think that goth is a race or ethnicity? Worst. Tyra gives her some well-deserved flak for her turnip truck routine at panel. In any case, Jourdan and Jeremy really go at it during the makeout portion of their shoot. In the end, it's Cory who wins the week with Kanani coming in a close second. Jiana and Alexandra wind up in the bottom two. Alexandra is sent home, likely because she hasn't been acting like she wants to covertly make out with anyone in the house.
Our latest episode begins with the models returning home post-panel to find Jourdan's best-of-week photo displayed as digital art, with compliments about her gorgeousness spread right across partner Chris's face. With a big cheese, Jourdan tells us she was not expecting best photo of the week. I feel like secretly she is ALWAYS expecting best photo of the week. In the past, Jourdan interviews, she tried modeling and it didn't work out because…and whatever originally followed the "because…" is cut off in favor of yet another sound byte about Jourdan's abusive relationship. Oh, an abusive relationship that wound up in marriage and divorce when she was only eighteen years old? Have we heard anything about that yet? I can't recall. Anyway, Abusive Husband told her she was ugly and not a model, and that took a toll on Jourdan's self esteem. I wonder if it also contributed to making her the drip she is today, or if she came by that of her own accord.
Meanwhile, the other models parade through the house and Marvin opines that they don't care about Jourdan or her picture. Apparently she's spending quite a bit of time standing like one inch from the screen where it's displayed. Kanani notes Jourdan's deep interest in gawking at her own picture and tells us that she's getting on everybody's nerves. Nina is a notable exception, and so Jourdan invites her to share in the Tyra Suite privileges. Nina explains that Jourdan has been sweet to her even though she's rubbing everyone else the wrong way, and says that from the beginning they've agreed to have one another's' backs. And I have to say, Nina seems awesome but you do have to wonder about her taste in comrades.
We then cut to Cory, telling some of the others that he's annoyed with Jourdan's character and her personality, but he has to admit that she's a great model. Renee mentions that Jourdan said she was a supermodel when she first got to the competition, and that her agency lost money and she was broke, so she had to resort to this competition. How DOES she deal with it all with her compromised self-esteem? And also what's her accent about? Everyone seems glad that Jourdan chose Nina to share in the Tyra Suite, since none of them want to be locked up with her for the evening.
Alexandra then tells Jiana that she can handle all the pressure of being in this competition, but what's killing her is not being able to talk to her mom, who had breast cancer a few years ago. Phil is missing his girlfriend, Zoe, and says it's tough being away from her for two months. Happily for him, he has Jiana to wrestle and flirt with. Jourdan pipes in to tell us that Phil and Jiana are constantly cuddling and holding each other, and she questions his intentions. His intentions seem to be to come as close as possible to boning her without actually boning her. That is indeed questionable. Phil definitely thinks Jiana is hot, and she says that he's a sweetheart but she doesn't want anything to distract her from the photo shoots. And really, haven't we all had a Phil in our lives? Jiana needs a kindly wise recapper friend to just tell her, "Girl, no."
