Thirteen beautiful young ladies, twelve photos. You know the drill. The girl who has the best photo of the week will be called first, and her photo will be displayed as digital art in the Top Model house. Additionally, the girl who has the best photo each week will also participate in the prize from the next challenge, no matter how poorly she does in said challenge. And the girl with the best photo this week is Jessica! See, the Lord loves you in the buff. Angelea is called next, followed by Ren, Brenda, Simone, Tatianna, Anslee, Raina, Naduah, Alexandra, and Krista. This leaves Gabrielle and Alasia in the bottom two. Two beautiful young ladies, one photo. And that photo represents the girl who's still in the running towards becoming America's Next Top Model. Gabrielle is a lovely girl in person, but there was dead silence when her photo appeared on screen. That dead silence represents a reader turning the page in a magazine. That's a problem. Alasia's photo made the judges feel very uncomfortable. She might be one of those girls whom the camera hates. So who stays? Alasia. Because you don't fuck with ALT and his salon. Poor Gabrielle, though -- that's a surprise. And she looks so pretty with her new curly blonde hair.
Gabrielle packs her things and admits she's in major shock. She wanted to represent women all over, but also break a barrier for herself. But she didn't. She intends to go to school for fashion merchandising and model on the side. But no matter what, she's going to be somebody. Somebody who can't sell a pair of gold leggings. Which, when you think about it, is actually okay.
We don't even get a commercial break as we head into the second hour of the show! Alasia says that being in the bottom two was a real wake-up call. She's glad that the judges see that she has potential, and assures us that she can do this with a little teaching. The girls head home and make a ruckus over Jessica's winning photo. Ren pours herself a glass of red. She confessionalizes that all of the girls talking so loud is seriously giving her a brutal headache. Alasia, who constantly screams -- even with her mouth stuffed with marshmallows! -- has a special place in Ren's ire. Ren says that it's so hard to be there, because she thinks she's far too intelligent. Cut to Alasia screaming with the marshmallows some more. Okay, well, maybe she has a point. But still, what a shit slice. Also, from certain angles, she really looks like Beavis.
