Jennifer is up first for evaluation. We see her best take, which I think is the take we saw her record earlier. Tyra raves about how cute Jennifer is, and Nigel agrees that she was adorable take after take. Kim tells her that she's very natural and very relatable, which is extremely important. Miss J., who is already on the Ptosis Society's shit list, wishes that there had been a little more animation in the eye. Laura is up next. She approaches the panel with a big smile on her face, despite what lies ahead. Her best take is choppy, with a couple of big stops and starts. Tyra likes how Laura personalized her dialogue with the big city / small town thing, which made her accent work. Nigel notes that Laura is dyslexic, and Laura adds that she's severely dyslexic. Tyra asks what that means, and Laura says that when she reads black and white text it looks like it's moving. Also, she has a bad memory, and writes her letters backwards and upside down. Kim Kardashian looks befuddled that Laura thinks writing letters backwards and upside down is incorrect. Miss J. says that with all the madness going on in her life, Laura manages to take pretty pictures. She smiles really wide -- so wide, in fact, that it would be impossible to eliminate that smile or anything it's attached to from the competition.
Next is Brittany, who has covered up her cleavage this week even though the back of her dress is all cut out at the top. We see her best take, and Kim notes that the whole thing seemed too scripted. Nigel says that Brittany memorized her script better than anyone, but didn't put any personality into her commercial. Tyra asks Brittany what her personality is, and Brittany says she's multi-dimensional. Tyra thinks that's a hunk of crap, and says that no little girl out in the world is going to see this commercial and love Brittany because she's multi-dimensional. Tyra thinks that Brittany should have played up the mathematician angle and say something like, "I'm all about the numbers, and this product is one plus one equals three." All of the other judges praise her for this, even though it makes no sense. It must be kind of encouraging to spend your entire life surrounded by sycophants.
Nicole is next, and Tyra asks what's up with her glasses. Nicole explains that she actually can't see without them. Tyra is dubious, but Kim likes it and declares it "geek chic." Nicole's commercial isn't perfect, but I think it's totally charming and good. Nigel tells her that she started off weak, but progressed really quickly. Tyra says that it wasn't Nicole's natural personality, but it popped. The way that she says this, though, makes me think that she kind of hates Nicole. Miss J. is really into Nicole's neck extension, and likes that she kicked it up a bit. Rae is next, and is nervous about seeing herself on camera. And, oof. Her best take is pretty terrible. Tyra calls Rae out on her fake smile at the end, which is just painful. She feels Rae trying to push. It's almost there, but she actually needs a shove. Kim points out that Rae had no smile until the end of the commercial, and then she was done. Nigel wanted Rae to come through and have fun with the commercial, but she couldn't do it. Miss J. points out that Rae kept moving around, but in a weird and jerky fashion. This critique is not good news.
