Krista is next, looking gorgeous. In her photo, her face is androgynous, and Tyra says she could be a dude. This is what's ugly-pretty about it. ALT has to give a big sigh and collect himself, because he's so emotional. He thinks the photo is exceptional work, and that if she took this photo to a John Galliano go-see, she'd be booked multiple times. She has no idea how beautiful the photo is, he says. Jay agrees that Krista stepped up, and embodied the creative for the day. Tyra adds that Krista created space, so we can see the water in the background in the space between her waist and her arm. Well done all around!
Last but not least is Alexandra. Seriously, with that outfit? Maybe she was continuing the ugly-pretty theme? Nigel thinks that Alex's photo is interesting, even though it's more like a still from a film than fashion. Jay says that Alex went too far at a certain point, so she became ugly-ugly. Tyra likes it, and likes how Alex is playing with her hand. It's not ALT's favorite photo, but he likes that she looks completely different in person, because a model must present something more than her usual personality in photos.
With that, the judges deliberate. Raina has really risen, according to Nigel. Initially in the competition he didn't think much of her, but now he sees real talent emerging. Jay says that Raina has undeniable beauty and takes direction really well, but she might not have the necessary versatility. She has a laser focus on what she thinks she needs to be, and that's it. ALT thinks that she consistently seems like she wants to be there, but he's never gotten the same emotional response as with some of the other girls. Tyra says that Raina has a goodness, which makes her even more beautiful. There's very little dreckitude in anything that Krista's done, says ALT, and she's consistently listened, learned, watched and observed. Her photograph is a masterpiece of how she's evolved. ALT ends by saying, "This girl... is extraordinary." Jay says that Krista focuses so much on her body that her face can be a struggle. She's usually lacking in expression, which could be a problem in the upcoming Cover Girl shoot.
Nigel thinks that Alexandra has one of the best plus-sized shapes that he's seen in a long time. He says that she can and will work in the plus-sized industry. Jay notes that Alex is always aware of her angles and her eye-line to the camera. She also knows how to make her body work. Tyra says that Alexandra is stunning, but she still doesn't know who she is. She has no story. Angelea of the blurry photo is the girl who said, "I'm here, what do you want me to do, boo? I can do this." And then didn't do it. ALT thinks that Angelea needs exposure, travel, and meeting different kinds of people, because she is a joy. Jay asks ALT if, when he looks at Angelea, if he thinks she's looking at this competition as the end or the beginning. ALT doesn't hesitate in saying, "Beginning," but Jay says that he thinks if Angelea doesn't win, it's over. He doesn't think that Angelea would ever try to model again. Whoever wins, says Jay, their career still has to roll out, and it's up to them to do it. Tyra then goes through a list of Top Model non-winners who are working: Fatima, Anya, Katarzyna, and Mollie Sue. This competition is about getting your foot in the back door of an industry that's usually closed tight, Jay says. And with that, the judges have reached a decision.
