With the one-on-one connections over, it's time for the runway show! The girls meet the Jays, who tell them that some familiar faces will be walking with them tonight. It's the last several eliminated girls -- Erin, Brittany, Sundai and Jennifer -- who of course are sequestered in Hawaii and might as well work as free labor. Jay claims that there will be a huge audience, and reminds Nicole and Laura that they're stomping to the death.
All the girls head to hair and makeup, and Teyona saunters over to continue her very important job of being utterly useless. The girls meet with wardrobe stylist Vanessa Geldbach to do a fitting, and she introduces them to designer Julia Clancey. Laura says that the dresses melt her heart. That would get sticky, which I don't think is so great for the garments. Bria Murphy, the daughter of Eddie Murphy, is also walking in the show. Some lackey is paid to ask Teyona for her autograph. The makeup people are going "heavy handed" on the glitter, which means that the girls get sprayed all over. It makes for an exceptionally shiny, greasy sort of look, which I'm sure is what Julia Clancey is going for. The former contestants weigh in on who should take the title. Erin says that, aside from herself, Laura would make the best winner. Jennifer and Sundai are also on team Laura. Brittany is a supporter of Nicole, but notes that Laura is the perfect Cover Girl. She's excited to see what happens.
Backstage, a very shiny Laura tells us that her dream is coming true, and she has a 50-50 percent chance of becoming America's Next Top Model. There really are quite a few people there to see the runway show, including Eddie Murphy himself. Nicole, who is shiny and wearing a pink doily, says that things are crazy and everyone's stressed out, but she feels good. The models line up, the runway lights up, and we head to commercials.
