The next day, Jay Manuel comes to the house yelling, "Fifty percent, Tyra! Fifty percent!" in mock Krista style. He tells them that they're going to be doing a Cover Girl commercial and print ad, and the print ad will be national for the winner. To help the girls get into the Cover Girl spirit, the show has once again dragged last season's winner, Nicole, to lurk around awkwardly. Nicole, who is not the most natural reader, tells the girls that for today's print and commercial shoot they'll be given all the tools they need to wow us with a big, bold look, using Cover Girl's Blast collection. But it's not just about how they look -- they need to show us their personalities and have fun with it. The concept of the commercial is that the girls are getting ready for a hot, fun night out on the town. It's not just about their face, it's about how they translate to the world. Raina is attempting to translate through her giant teeth, which in fact may serve as some sort of satellite dishes.
Hair and makeup is basically a series of small ads for the Blast collection. When you use the smoky shadow sticks, you can take your look from day to evening in two sections. You can use two shades of Shine Blast Gloss, for double the price and twice the stickiness! Raina tells us that, spackled in gunk, she really does feel like a Cover Girl. Jay brings favorite photographer Jonathan Mannion to the set. He'll be the commercial director for today. He's very accomplished, apparently solely on the basis of shooting the Cover Girl commercial for Cycle 13. Only the best! Jay explains that while one girl is shooting the commercial, the other will shoot her print ad, and then they'll switch. So no lurking around trying to distract your opponent! Krista predicts that Raina is going to overdo it, per usual, and it will read as fake. She thinks she's more relatable than Raina, and predicts that the whole thing will be a blast! Pun intended?
