Everyone pretty much feels terrible for Don, and tough he kind of wants to try it all again, the anxiety is killing him. Johnny calls Don over and says that they're considering his anxiety a medical issue, akin to Nina's collapsing lung. So he'll also get to go the lame snorkeling route. Nina knows that having to snorkel puts then at a severe disadvantage, even though she vows to be fierce with a snorkel mask. Johnny says that she has to work extra hard to make up for her lack of underwater catwalk points, and while Nina is flailing around gracelessly Carole says that she wouldn't book her. Don dons the snorkel mask next, but his nerves are shot and he's pretty fatigued at this point. He can barely hold himself up, much less rock the bathing suit and get some interesting body shapes.
Johnny and Carole gather the models on the boat to give critiques. Marvin is such a personality, but didn't give any energy on the catwalk. Nina's photos weren't as strong as Johnny would have hoped, and because he couldn't snap out of the panic, Don's photos were also really flat. On the good side, Chris jumped and used the water to his advantage. Jourdan was very fluid, no pun intended, and let's be honest, she looks great in a swimsuit. Johnny loved Renee's performance, and particularly her on-point posing. And Renee is the challenge winner! Jourdan is peeved, and tells us again that she knows she has the best runway walk out of everybody there. She won't be able to show it off in her $3,000 worth of 69 Slam bathing suits, though! Renee tells us that it's time for the underdog to start barking and shut everybody else up. Thankfully, she doesn't actually go "ruff-ruff!" like a little puppy. She saves that for snuggle time with Marvin.
Back at the house, the challenge scores are posted. Renee has a 10, Jourdan has a 9, Chris has an 8 as does Jeremy, whose girl poses were I suppose all right in the end. Cory, Nina and Marvin all have 6s, and poor Don circles the drain with a 5. Don is bummed, but heartened by the fact that he's only one point behind several of his peers. He's hoping to kill it on the photo shoot. Nina stares in shock at her score, and tells us that she's not ready to go home and have her dream disappear. Well, then, try having a whole lung.
Meanwhile, Renee and Marvin snuggle in bed, with Jeremy right next to them. That's got to be awkward, right? Marvin compliments Renee on her soft skin and lips and herâ€¦wet hair. You know, he's still working some things out. Jeremy comments on what a weird couple Renee and Marvin are, given her shyness -- some would call it sense of dignity! -- and Marvin's lack thereof. Marvin tells us that Renee is a distraction in a good way, and the two of them help to keep each other in the moment. Plus, nookie is a great de-stressor.
