Allison is next up, looking lovely and fresh on set. She reminds us that she was the absolute worst at the last Cover Girl commercial shoot, so is really scared. Allison delivers her first line relatively competently, then stops a minute and just blinks her eyes like one of those weird plastic babies with three faces and a rotating neck. She grasps for her lines, then apologizes and Jay cuts. He asks her if she totally forgot the script, and she says that she did for the moment. Allison interviews that it's very strange to know something through and through, then draw a blank when you get on camera. She takes a minute, starts over, then continues her tale of magic in a marker. If nothing else, I think Allison can use the lip strain marker to simulate a bloody nose. When she finishes Jay exclaims, "Brava!" and tells her that it rolled off of her tongue and was great. However, to us, he says that even though this was a huge improvement from her first commercial, he's not convinced that she's ready to move on and be a real cover girl. Who's talking about being a real cover girl? Allison has her photo shoot, and Jim says that she has a great face with big eyes and big lashes. He says it's a bit of a Bettie Page look, which I hadn't thought of before. Maybe her pin-up qualities are where that random sexiness that she busts out every so often comes from.
Finally, there's Teyona. She says that she needs to rock at anything she does, because any little flaw or mishap could potentially send her home. And Teyona does not want to go home. She gets on set and looks lovely, though it's just struck me that her bone structure is akin to none other than the Snow Miser's. Throw a weave on that guy and they'd practically be twins. Teyona is not having so much luck with the lines. Jay cuts, and tells her that she's just spitting the words out because she's so caught up in her nerves. She also has the biggest plastered on smile, and it's making me nervous. Teyona told Jay earlier in the day that she made up a song with her lines. He asks her to sing it. Sadly, it does not contain the line, "I'm too much." The song is horrible, and Teyona can't even remember the lines when she's singing it, and eventually she has a total mental crack. She puts her hands on her head and starts to cry. Jay asks her what's wrong, and she tearfully says, "I can do this but my nerves are just..." As those ellipses sink in for a moment, we head to commercials.
