Elina with her big red hair is next. Nigel says that her photo is stunningly beautiful, and adds that she really has a beautiful face. Paulina says that for modeling, tattoos are generally a terribly bad idea. We see the big ink on Elina's arm. Elina notes that she was nervous about hiding them. Tyra, who I think is feeling a little salty about Paulina these days, says that the tattoos work for Elina's photo and so she's not going to retouch them. Tyra adds that Elina's is one of the most interesting makeovers they've done on Top Model. It makes her racially ambiguous. Every little girl can look at Elina's picture and see herself in it. And then wonder why she's suddenly feeling like she hates her mom. Tyra thinks that's beautiful.
Last but not least is Joslyn, who has a wide-legged stance in her photo. Miss J. thinks she's one step from the pose that all the girls do in the hood. He does the hood pose, and may have a point. Tyra notes that Joslyn has power in her photo. She's posing, but there's motion. Well done for a third week in a row! Joslyn is really the surprise of the season.
And hey! It's Cycle 9's Lisa! She's apparently been taking the fashion world by storm, posing for Carmen Marc Valvo and Tracy Reese. And she opened the William and Augusta show at New York fashion week! Is it wrong of me to admit that I don't even remember Lisa in the slightest? Did she maybe cry at her makeover? Oh no, wait! Lisa was the stripper who has seen every kind of hurt! Oh, good for her. I hope she's making some cash.
The judges deliberate. Sheena's picture is beautiful, but it's the second soft shot she's done, and Nigel would like to see a bit more power. Analeigh's face is dull. Paulina says she has a beautiful body and the skating background, and they all want her to have more potential than she probably actually has. Clark is not as photogenic as Susan wanted her to be. Nigel says she's night and day in front of them and in photos. Lauren Brie is the opposite of Clark -- she doesn't look great in person, but photographs amazingly well. Brittany is very "pretty," says Nigel, but is not a great model. Susan adds that she doesn't have the "wow" factor. Paulina is loving Samantha's hair, and says that her photo is gorgeous. Hannah needs to stop looking so put together. Isis looks gorgeous in her photo despite the wonky eye, but she was stuck in the same pose and her film all looks the same. Tyra loves practically everything about Marjorie's photo. McKey's looks incredible, says Nigel, and her makeover has done her an amazing amount of justice. Elina delivered despite her crazy-ass makeover. Paulina loves the way Joslyn's swimsuit looks. Miss J. does his hood pose and screams. And with that, panel comes to a conclusion.
