Dani(elle) comes out and says, "Y'all are cute." They may have given her veneers to close the tooth gap, but clearly the show was too cheap to perform the lasix surgery. Jay notes that he now has to call Dani(elle) "Dani,' because her agency changed her name. With this, the chyron changes, too. I have too say that, normally, I'm a fan of Dani(elle), but she's looking a little tired. Dani(elle) tells the girls always to remember that they're role models, and to make good decisions and choices and have fun with everything they do. Jay also tells them to remain grounded and level-headed like Dani(elle), because he doesn't need any more divas walking around. One rib-loving walrus in a weave is quite enough for him to handle, thank you very much.
The girls get primped and powdered. Caridee says that she's studied her commercial lines, but doesn't want to study too hard, because then you overthink things. And speaking of overthinking, Melrose is repeatedly practicing her lines aloud. Caridee says something to her to the effect that it's really annoying, and Melrose says, "Well, then, stop listening to me, ho." Ooooh, she just called Caridee a ho. I mean, it's hard to argue with it, but still. Caridee seems mildly offended. Eugena says that Melrose needs to be perfect, and doesn't care about anyone or anyone's feelings. All she cares about is herself and how she's going to do in the competition. And, I mean, it is a competition, so I get that. But I think what Eugena means is that Melrose doesn't have to be quite such a stank bitch to everyone. Caridee says that she's starting to overthink things herself, and that Melrose got her all freaked out. Eugena reminds us that she and Caridee want to be in the final two together. They don't want Melrose to win, because she's fake. And also a stank bitch. Dani(elle) chats it up with Caridee and Eugena, and Eugena doesn't seem wildly enthusiastic about the experience before her. Melrose says that she knows how much she wants this and how long she's wanted something like this, and that she hasn't heard anything similar from Eugena. Foreshadowing, ding ding ding.
