And I mean, seriously, this might have been the dumbest thing ever.
Melrose tells us that she should be America's Next Top Model, because with all of the conditions and disastrous experiences, her performance rocked. Caridee says that she just wants to make it to the top, and prove it to everyone who doubted her. She hopes that she wins.
And then suddenly we are at judging! You know, Caridee is about a head and a half taller than Melrose. They are no longer dressed as ghost brides, thank goodness. Tyra actually looks decent, too. There are prizes: a contract with Elite, a cover and six-page spread in Seventeen, and a $100,000 contract with Cover Girl. There are also judges, and today they include Jay Manuel. That's fair. What's not fair is his blinding pink blazer. Put it away, queen.
The judges review footage of the girls walking. Twiggy says that Melrose was wonderful. She showed the dresses and looked very confident. Tyra says that she didn't overcompensate and give ugly facial expressions. She looked like a real model. Nigel could see photograph after photograph in the crazy acting segment, and Miss J. notes that she did particularly well considering that the dress she was wearing was a little too big for her. Jay says that she was so graceful and beautiful, and Twiggy says she looked like she was floating.
And then, Caridee. She sucked, yo. Miss J. says that she needs to keep it pretty, simple, and strong. Nigel says that she loses herself, and looked better when she walked into judging. Tyra says that Caridee looked like she was holding her breath. And as far as the theatrical segment, Nigel says that it was all theatrics and no modeling. She also held the dress up the whole time so that no one could see what it looked like, and had a really ugly facial expression. Twiggy says that what Caridee has naturally is so wonderful, and Jay says that she has to trust in her beauty. He notes that she's handling standing in front of the judges -- which seems like it would be a more stressful situation -- better than she handled the runway show.
