The girls head into hair and makeup. Isis says that she has to make sure she has strong faces with strong poses. As opposed to all the other weeks, when she was trying to look like a fart-faced wet noodle. Jay introduces the girls to photographer Mike Ruiz, who did the superhero shoot in Cycle 5. Mike tells the girls that today they have to give a lot of drama. Girl, if you want to see drama, you go take pictures at a house meeting, okay? That would be the "gang rape" photo shoot. Nikeysha says that she really needs to do well, which I'm sure means that she'll be terrible. Meanwhile, Hannah sulks in the hair chair and thinks about how much she relates to Jodie Foster's character in The Accused.
Lauren Brie is the first to head to the ladder, and we hear some people give lip service to the fact that it's always safety first. This is relevant to the situation at hand, as there is apparently quite a bit of wind and the balloon is flying around like crazy. Lauren Brie admits to getting a little nervous. Luckily (for the girls, not for the viewing audience), Jay decides to recreate the scene by hanging the ladder from a crane. For the final photo, they'll put together a digital composite of the ladder hanging from the hot air balloon. In any case, Lauren Brie is awesome. Jay loves what she's doing, and says that it's a Dior ad. She really knows how to flip herself around that ladder!
Elina is up next, and Jay tells her to bring variety. Elina is also so good that she makes Jay bust into orgasm noises -- TWICE! He thinks that she looks like a goddess in the sky, and also like Angelina Jolie. I have to agree that she looks pretty fierce. And then we take a Hannah break. She explains that last night she was accused of being racist, which was humiliating. Today, however, she's over it. If people feel like they need to keep talking about it, she says, it's their issue. And apparently, people do feel the need to keep talking about it as Brittany and her crew again state that Hannah needs to learn to treat people with respect. If she did, they wouldn't have to practically gang-rape her.
