The girls return and Tyra says, "Who knows how many photos I have in my hands?" Ha! Way to be cagey for an extra two minutes, Tyra. The best photo this week goes to Hannah. Crying works! Hannah still has my dream hair. So pretty. The runner-up for best photo is Brittani. She's followed by Monique, Mikaela, Kasia, Dominique, Sara, Alexandria, Jaclyn, and Molly. This leaves Dalya and Nicole in the bottom two. They step forward, and Tyra tells Nicole that the judges are nervous that she looks like a teenager in person, and like a teenager's auntie in her photos. And then there's Dalya, who has stunning bone structure and had a gorgeous photo in this week. However, it was the only usable photo of all of her shots. Tyra drags out the question of Ondrei's photo before finally revealing that it wasn't the worst, and either Nicole or Dalya will indeed be going home. Unhappily for Alexandria, Dalya's chicken-judging ways will live to see another week. It's octogenarian-looking Nicole who is sent back to the nursing home. She says that she was trying too hard, and Tyra agrees and tells her to just let it be. Nicole appreciates Tyra's advice, and tells us that she was too focused on being fierce, which doesn't jive with her look. She tried something new, at the worst of all times. However, she learned from this experience and is resigned to her fate.
Next week: Makeovers and a couture photo shoot!
