The girls rush off to apply their makeup. Elina is fine with the makeup challenge but, in case you were wondering, is still not fine with her "silly hair." And then it's time for the commercials! Hannah is goofy and bucktoothed and, some would say, endearing. Samantha gets points for using the phrase "transparent palette." We learn that Isis would use the "warm beige" shade. Analeigh is not an improvisational master, nor is Brittany. But no one is quite so well spoken as Marjorie, who nervously says, "Thank God...for Walgreen's." Awesome. Elina looks uncomfortable. Analeigh ends her commercial by saying, "Leave it to the professionals. Leave it to Cover Girl. Yo." Like she's suddenly from the hood, like Tonya Harding or something. McKey gets points for going the "Easy, Breezy" route.
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.
