Next up is Anya. Oof, the nose! Janice Dickinson would totally make her hack that thing off. Nigel wants to see more power in her eyes, which gives Tyra the perfect opportunity to give her famous "dead eyes," "fierce eyes," demonstration. When she does "fierce eyes," it actually looks like she's going to come through the TV screen and try to eat my spleen. Pretty! But, you know, point taken. Katarzyna is next, with her hair in a bun just like Tyra told her to do last week. But it still looks too styled. Her poufy hair is certainly going to be her demise. However, she has alive eyes in her photo! Paulina thinks it's relaxed but sophisticated. Next we have Fatima. In her photo she has an arm over her head, and immediately Miss J. zooms in on her armpit hair. Tyra says it best when she asks, "What is up with the armpits, girl?" Everyone is appalled. Fatima tells them that she doesn't shave, and it is like she just said, "I like to stab puppies in the head with my stiletto heels." Which she probably does, too. But anyway: horror!
Fatima says she thought it would be touched up. The panel is quick to tell her that in the debate over a $1,000 touch up and a $1 razor, the winner is another model. Paula says, "This is the only job in the world that pretty much just requires you to show up clean and shaved and for a lot of money." I love that she basically just undid Tyra's seasons of protestations that modeling is really, really hard work. You just shower, shave, show up, and stand there. I knew it all along! Vendela tells her to take this seriously if she really wants it. Fatima replies that she's very, very serious. The armpit hair almost distracts the judges from the fact that her photo is great.
Next we have Lauren. She apologizes for wearing Converse high tops, saying that she doesn't know where her shoes are. Tyra asks if someone stole her shoes, and Miss J. speculates that it was one of the queens at 5 Pointz. Lauren confesses that she wears a size 10, and everyone on the panel is like, "Oooh, yeaaahhhhh." Her photo is gorgeous, per usual. Go, Lauren! Whitney is next, and her photo is pretty bad. She seems self-conscious, and Vendela says that, based on her performance at the posing contest, it doesn't seem like she's taking it all very seriously. Is that, like, the only English that Vendela knows? Get another critique! Whitney tells her that she was trying to mimic the queens, and assures Vendela that the competition is very serious to her. You don't see her drinking a damn Colt 45 every night, do you?
