Nigel gathers the girls together and says that though this was a painful routine, it exposes who they really are so the camera can capture their humanity. If they hide their humanity, he says, they'll be just another pretty face. It's their stories that make them special, and TV-worthy. Nicole tells us that the experience was cathartic, and she really did work through her problems. Why get a therapist when you could have an acting coach? Nigel says that since the girls all did such a good job, J. Estina jewelers is gifting each of them a beautiful pair of earrings. Jaclyn is very excited about the earrings, and thinks they all deserve it because they've been through heck. You want to talk about heck? I've been recapping this show for thirteen seasons. Where's my free jewelry?
Back at the house, the girls talk about the challenge experience. Dalya says it hurts to talk about stuff like that. In a tearful interview, she tells us that this is her first time being away from her family to such an extent, and that being independent and living with other people and growing is the best feeling ever. Then why is she crying? Maybe because she's afraid of being 25 and still living with her parents, or maybe she just flashed back to the raw chicken.
Ondrei confessionalizes that this has been a tough day, and she's a little overwhelmed. She's thinking about whether or not she really wants to be there. Ondrei calls her boyfriend and cries. She says she's stressed, and that her brother's death has been brought up a lot. She thought that she could deal with it, but she can't. Her boyfriend says that whatever decision she makes, everyone is going to stand behind her. As Ondrei lets out a big sigh and ponders if her mental health is worth the cost of not being America's Next Top Model, we head to commercials.
When we return, the girls head to their photo shoot as Smashbox Studios. They are greeted by Jay Manuel, who says that the fashion industry is constantly abuzz creating dynamic imagery for high-fashion editorial advertising. And sometimes you have to do something drastic to excite people to buy a product. For today's photo shoot, the girls will be working with some of the busiest bees in the business. And by business he means buzz-iness. And by bees he means bees. BEES! We see them swarming and making their honey or trying to copulate with the queen or whatever bees do in captivity. This is just the latest in Top Model's scheme to try to murder someone in the most gruesome way possible. The girls will be wearing jewelry covered in pheromones that will attract bees. Jay tells them to stay calm through all of it, otherwise, the bees will sting them to death. The photographer for the day is Mike Rosenthal.
