Kimberly is next. She looks okay, except for her weird oily hair. Her glamorous photo is good, but a little hoochified. Her tragic shot is great. Heather and Saleisha get judged together. Saleisha gets compliments on her look, but the judges have to tell Heather to step forward. Both girls get compliments on their glamorous photos, and Nigel says Heather has a very quiet beauty. Tyra notes that Heather is also shrinking in front of the panel, and tells her to look at Saleisha's confidence. Saleisha looks great in her secondhand smoke shot, and Heather looks crazy but affecting.
The winner of this week's style competition is Saleisha, who gets a $1,000 shopping spree with Old Navy. A thousand dollars will buy a lot of crap at Old Navy, so Saleisha could theoretically be outfitted for years, if everything she buys doesn't fall apart after the second wash. She also gets to be in an Old Navy ad. I can't wait to see how her tracheotomy hole looks in print! Commercials.
Lisa is the Cover Girl of the Week! Ha! Suck it, Bianca.
The judges deliberate. Chantal is so perfect, says Nigel, and he likes the imperfections. Tyra says he likes the "pretty ugly," and asks him what's pretty ugly on her. Oooh! Oooh! Please, ma'am, call on me! Janet doesn't look like a model to Twiggy, and is unmemorable. Ambreal is beautiful, but maybe not a model. Mila was dead and unimpressive. Tyra likes that she's curvy, but doesn't think that she was absorbing a thing that they told her. I don't think Mila absorbs much, with the exception of the time she bathed in radioactive iodine. Saleisha reminds Miss J. of Season Five's Nik, and he's not sold yet. Jenah may slip in the personality department according to Miss J. and Nigel. Kimberly has the men's-magazine thing, but could also work in fashion. Ebony, says Nigel, is probably the most beautiful girl there, but definitely has a dark side. He notes that he could see in her eyes when they were critiquing her that she couldn't handle it. I do wonder how she passed the psych test. Sarah has a beautiful face, according to Nigel, and Tyra thinks she looks like she knows what she's doing. Everyone loves Lisa. Nigel thinks Victoria's is one of the best pictures of the bunch, and the other judges can hardly believe it. Twiggy even asks if he's joking. So mean!
Miss J. loves Heather's face and says she doesn't realize it, but she's always naturally giving a good photo. Nigel says she photographs like a dream. Tyra says that she's making a whole lot of autistic kids go, "Wow." Nigel, completely off the cuff except I'm sure this is the fifth take of this dialogue, says, "Wait uh uh woah woah woah...she's autistic?" Tyra explains about Asperger's, and adds that certain genius qualities can come out in addition to the social awkwardness. I expect her also to note that Heather is a very good driver. Twiggy thinks Bianca has a beautiful face, but she knows nothing about modeling. Miss J. says that the first cut is always hard, and it seems like the girls haven't had a chance. Tyra says they've had a chance. Snap!
