First things first: Alexandria still sucks. Now that we've established that, let's move on to the challenge. The girls break into teams of three to film a Cover Girl webisode. Each team is comprised of one writer, one director, and one "talent," with the roles being picked randomly. While two of the teams work pretty well together, Molly, Monique and Alexandria have some problems. Problem number one is that Alexandria is a pain in the ass. Actually, that's the only problem. She once again exhibits her bossy ways, and then gets very dramatic when called on them. She also does not get any points for repeatedly saying, "I'm the talent." Monique shows a surprising amount of cool, calm, collectedness as director and gets special praise from Jay, but ultimately it's the team of Kasia, Brittani and Mikaela that wins.
Back at the house, Alexandria continues to freak out about weird stuff, like someone possibly taking her towel. The other girls wonder if she's bipolar or just a bitch. We learn that Alexandria has a somewhat tragic backstory. Her parents split, and abuse played a part. She had to grow up fast and take care of her siblings, and so developed into the control freak that she is today. She wishes that the other girls understood this about her. Well, then tell them! God. While Alexandria is on the phone with her boyfriend, Monique decides to take a peek in her diary to see if she's talking shit about everyone. Alexandria's diary seems very easy to find, which is a tremendous oversight when living in a house full of bitches. Monique finds that there's no smack talk in the diary -- just musings on how sad and alone she feels. This makes Monique feel like an ass, and rightfully so.
In this week's photo shoot, the girls are transformed into fashion animals at the old L.A. zoo. They're wearing pieces from Rachel Zoe's faux fur collection, and get to pose with an adorable and feisty jaguar cub. Hannah is amazing and gets the best photo of the week. Brittani and Jaclyn are also particularly great. Kasia and Monique are not so much cat people, but stay safe. Alexandria hisses at the cat and gets an interesting if not fashion-y picture. An uninspired and weave-traumatized Molly lands in the bottom two along with Dalya, who just hasn't been delivering. Molly is the true victor not only because she gets to stay, but because they're going to rip whack weave number two out of her head! Sorry, Dalya.

Previously on Top Model: Dalya won a fiery challenge in which, despite all hopes and plans, no one got even the slightest bit maimed. Kasia worked her curves, attitude, and thespian prowess in a Mad Men style commercial for Fierce Roast Coffee, while Alexandria worked everyone's nerves by continuing to be such a control freak. Sara could not channel her vintage sex appeal and was sent back to being a poor, feminist creeper. Nine bitches remain!
The girls return to their house and see what appears to be a mall photo booth-generated painting representing Kasia's best-of-week commercial displayed as digital art. Kasia is thrilled that she's finally come in first, and reiterates some of the praise displayed on the digital art -- she milked every second, she says, which is what you have to do. Do we really have to have bovine implications when talking about the plus-sized girl? Dalya tells us that Kasia was amazing, but she has no doubt in her mind that she (meaning Dalya herself) can be one of the strongest competitors in the house. She's been modeling since she was 16, she says, and has also already experienced L.A. fashion week. Intriguing! Dalya always seemed particularly green to me. She should brag about that stuff more so we think she has a chance. Dalya doesn't think that some of the girls in the house appreciate the magnitude of the opportunity they have to be a Cover Girl, and to trim Andre Leon Talley's toenails, or whatever else they win.
While Monique soaks in the tub, Brittani and Alexandria chat. Brittani is hurt that she did her best, but then was told that she fucked it up. As we have all learned from one Mr. James Ingram, sometimes your best isn't good enough. And sometimes your all is too much. To make the magic last for more than just one night is a difficult task. For her part, Alexandria feels that she was misunderstood when Jay told her that she was trying to direct. We are reminded that Tyra said this was the last time she'd warn Alexandria about her stank attitude. Meaning, if you keep being so whack, you're going home. Alexandria interviews that all that legitimate criticism is a really heavy burden on her chest, because she's a positive, artistic California girl. You can be all of those things and still be really annoying. Alexandria doesn't like it when people don't "get" her. Oh girl, please.
