Benny Nina makes a guest appearance to teach the girls how to pose in a giant mesh laundry bag. Hawt! Nikeysha has no clue as to what she's doing, but does realize temporarily that shutting her mouth is a good thing. This does not last long, however, as she tells designer Tarina Tarantino that she has to pee before engaging in the week's posing challenge. Sheena proves that God loves her as much as we do, and made her able to naturally spread her legs super-wide -- wide enough, in fact, to fit a big handbag. This is not enough, sadly, to win the posing challenge -- that honor goes to Elina. The girls all pile in the hot tub, which of course leads to some shenanigans. During a spirited game of Truth or Dare, Elina goes in for the big kiss with Clark. Clark kept her lips closed, but you know she enjoyed it. Isis gets a bit too close to Hannah's personal space, so Hannah gives her a little shove. This is not taken well by some of the girls, who also note that Hannah's white-girl-from-a-small-town routine is even more annoying, and perhaps offensive, than immediately apparent. Several of the women of color confront her and ask if she's racist. She does not take the question well. Just when McKey tries to convince us to feel a little bad for her, Hannah compares the ambush on her character to a gang rape. Yeah.
The week's photo shoot was meant to have the girls hanging on a ladder from a hot air balloons, but when the wind kicks up Jay regrettable decides to put safety first and saves Marjorie from being blown off to Oz. Instead, the ladder is hung from a crane. Wind still proves to be a factor as some of the girls struggle to pose while remembering their faces and their garments. Lauren Brie, Joslyn and Elina take to the air with the greatest of ease, while some others can't quite get a grip. And as for Sheena, she proves to have the strength of twenty men in her left buttock alone. Judging gets interesting as the panel tells Nikeysha that she needs to eat a damn cheeseburger, and Sheena denies and then admits to having some Dr. 90210 style silicone funbags hanging off of her chest. She makes it through to another week, with strict instructions to de-hooch. In the end it's Nikeysha and Isis, who may be thrown off by her hormone injections, in the bottom two. Isis gets her photo and Nikeysha starts going on about how she's going to go home and become an anesthesiologist. Tyra totally tells her to shut the hell up, which is a pretty fitting end to Nikeysha's very short journey.
Hi all! Before I begin, I must make a correction to last week's recap. Thanks to Alaskan native Hilary for writing to tell me that, in fact, there really ARE no billboards in Alaska! Apparently, state law prohibits them. I really just thought it was Hannah being dumb and all, "Aw, shucks, fellas! What's this newfangled electric light bulb you're all talking about?" So Hannah gets one point, which leaves the score so far at: Potes - 148; Hannah - 1.
Previously on ANTM: Bitches! Magicians! A fierce stand on political issues and getting out to vote! And, in a rare act of mercy toward her viewers, Tyra gave Sharaun the boot. The unlucky thirteen remain! Na na na na na na!
It is night, and the girls' eco-friendly bus is still fierce. The girls return home from judging to find Marjorie's photo displayed digitally, as promised. She feels good about it. And then we get down to business. Nikeysha tells the other girls that she talks too much because she feels the need to explain herself. Girl, the crazy on your face is apparent to everyone, so you really don't have to put so much effort into explanation. Nikeysha interviews that the judges got the wrong impression of her. Exactly how that impression is wrong, she does not say. Instead she points out how she kept talking over Tyra and Tyra wanted to get in a damn word. Which would, in fact, indicate that the judges had exactly the right impression of her. Nikeysha tells us that at the next panel she's going to keep her mouth shut. If she really wants to follow through with that promise, I suggest she find some lip sutures quick.
Tyra Mail! In this week's delivery photo, Tyra is positively orgasmic that all the letters have fallen out of her mailbag. She also pounds the pavement through rain, snow, sleet and hail in five-inch ankle strap stilettos. No wonder the cost of stamps went up again. The Tyra Mail says: "Don't get it twisted. Will you bend over backwards to be on top? Love, Tyra." Sheena says that hell yes, she will. I feel like she gives that answer every time someone asks her to bend over. Cut to Isis who reminds us that she had the second best photo last week. Her biggest challenge, she says, is working with her face and making sure it's soft and pretty. Like sugar and spice and everything nice! I sure hope Isis doesn't underestimate the awesomeness of her face when it's finger-waving fierce.
