The girls get their critiques. Marjorie had the Walgreen's snafu. Crissy says that watching Samantha was like watching a friend talk about a product. Because that's what friends do! Why talk about feelings and such when you can talk about cakey foundation that in truth is not going to match your skin tone no matter what you do? Brittany was pretty but kind of dumb-sounding. Hannah, says Sutan, was adorable and thorough. Analeigh's performance was a bit ghetto. I say props for her for going against type, though. In the end, there can only be one winner. And it's Hannah. She's thrilled, and the others reluctantly clap for her. Hannah thinks it's very cool that she can go online and Google herself. You know, once she gets electricity in her house.
When the girls get home, there is more Tyra Mail! "Which one of you is suited to be America's Next Top Model? Love, Tyra." The girls all suspect that they'll be doing some swimsuit modeling. No one mentions the Angry Inch yet, but you know they're all thinking about it.
We cut to Brittany in her room talking about how much she loves her mom and her family. She interviews how hard it is to be out of her parents' house and living with all the other girls. Suddenly Elina walks through the room with her big curly red weave and busts out with, "I've never loved my mom." That weave is soaked in truth serum! Elina interviews that her mom doesn't know how to be a mother, and that she has never been allowed to express either negative or positive emotions. This explains, she says, why she's been guarded or controlling or afraid of putting herself out there too much. And also why she's reality famewhoring. The conversation continues, but not before we get a shot of Marjorie and Hannah standing arm-in-arm next to each other, with Hannah wearing running shorts and tube socks. It adds something to the context, but I can't pinpoint exactly what. Maybe that there are others in the house who should be hating their mothers more.
Brittany asks Elina if she lives in her mother's house, and if her mother pays the bills. Elina nods. She also acknowledges upon Brittany's asking that her mom buys her food. Elina says that they talk and hang out. Brittany and Joslyn can't understand why Elina hates her mom so much. Elina explains that going grocery shopping does not equal love, and then busts out with, "I hate her. I hate my mom." I bet the family therapy sessions those two are in right now are awesome. Brittany confessionalizes that Elina is an evil bitch, and ungrateful to boot. She tells Elina that it sounds like she's using her mom. Elina, who can't counterpoint a good point, simply says that she just became uncomfortable with the conversation. As opposed to how comfortable everyone in the room must have been when she started talking about how she hates her mother. Elina is upset and walks out. Brittany notes that she's psycho, and we head to commercials.
