Tyra has had a stern look on her face all this time, and now gets to testify. She says that in terms of sportsmanship, what Brittani has done is one of the weakest things that a role model can do. No matter what you feel inside about how deserving of commendation someone is, you need to shut your lips, especially in front of a client. She says that this is a business, and you have to respect your client, your co-workers, and yourself. The mere idea of self-respect is simply too much for Brittani, and she fans herself and walks out of panel as we head to a commercial.
When we return, Tyra tells the other, somewhat alarmed-looking girls that Brittani has left but they will continue on. She adds that this is fashion, and she's seen it all. ALT tells Alexandria that he feels bad for her at this moment, and thinks that she should buck up and put a smile on her face. Meanwhile, Brittani is backstage in a really compressed child's pose, right on the tile floor. She drinks water and cries and fans herself and gasps for air and finally returns to panel in time for her critique. Tyra asks why she left the set, and Brittani gasps out that she had a panic attack and can't really talk. Tyra doesn't care about any damn panic attack, and asks Brittani if she understands what the judges are talking about in terms of being nasty in front of a client. Brittani chokes out in a sort of childlike, semi-deranged voice that she knows she has to keep her mouth shut in certain places. This seems to placate Tyra momentarily, and she turns to Brittani's photo. Nigel says that it's a very sweet shoot, but she could have taken it bigger. ALT says that it's not the best picture of Brittani, but works because he sees an emotion in the eyes.
