Eventually, the extras in the commercial have to basically push Ann from one to another. They soon learn not to let go even for a second until she is safely delivered. Her escorts also devise a special way of skating with Ann, in which her knees are bent and her back is at a 45-degree angle to the ground as they hold her. It is, quite honestly, pretty hilarious. Jay tells us that Ann's biggest problem is her fear of failure and making herself look like a fool in front of other people. As a result, Ann completely psyched herself out. As this girl has been through enough torture, Nigel mercifully yells "Cut!" before she has to kiss the dude. At the end of the shoot Nigel simply says, "You're alive," which is as high praise as it comes in this circumstance. Ann tearfully interviews that not doing well in the commercial makes her scared, because even a few screw-ups can get you sent home. As a dreadful chord of doom plays and Ann ruminates on the cyclical nature of being freaked out, we head to commercials.
When we return, the girls discuss the shoot back at the house. Chelsey asks Kayla why she had such a hard time with it, and Kayla tells the others that she was sexually assaulted for about a year and a half when she was younger. She also tells them that no one, from her girlfriend to her family to her friends, knows about it. Kayla interviews that she now realizes that it's healthy to talk about it, and she's going to deal with it. She feels better about it and doesn't think it will affect her in the competition. She wants to win, and won't let her lot in life get in the way of it. In reality TV, your terrible lot in life is actually seen as a positive, so I'm glad she's not needlessly worried.
With that, we're backstage pre-panel! Tyra does a weird little shuffle as she enters, and ALT asks if her skirt is so tight she can't walk. Tyra replies, "No, I'm just being dumb." TRUER WORDS. The girls enter, and I think all but Liz are wearing leggings, with varying degrees of success. There are prizes, there are judges. Zac Posen is the guest judge. He looks like a little doll with plastic hair. Jane is up first for evaluation. The judges watch her best take, which is pretty good. Zac commends her on her magic moment with the male model at the end of the commercial, and ALT agrees that it worked. Nigel says that Jane had the lines down, the light looked good, and her outfit looked good. However, he still wants to see more of her. In other words, Jane might not be quite as dull as Esther but she's inching closer.
