The girls then shuffle off to meet the Jays for an initial runway walk. Part of this will be to teach the girls how to stand out from their direct competition. Clothing from Cynthia Rowley has been flown in, and the girls change into it. Chelsey, 22 from Boise, says that she's had some experience on the runway -- in Idaho? -- and has loved Cynthia Rowley since she started modeling. Chelsey has a bit of an Anna Paquin thing going on, but with the distinct disadvantage of looking kind of haggard. The rock n' roll lifestyle of a potato model takes its toll.
The "quirky" girls walk first. These include Lexie, Jordan and Ann. Jordan says she's doing her best to stand out. This entails standing in the center, walking two steps ahead of everyone, and cocking her hips from side to side at the end of the runway. Miss J. says he needs a stripper pole and chair for her, then mocks her walk. Jordan is not amused. There are several girls who walk in the "sexy" category, and two who have strong bone structure. One of these is Jane, 19 from Baltimore. She wants to bust out her notebook and learn everything. She's a total newbie to modeling, but wants the Vogue cover. Jay tells Jane and Kayla, the other strong bone structure contender, that they look mean. Next we have the three nondescript blondes. Chelsey thinks that she's got it going on, and that her freckles and the gap in her teeth make her different. Miss J. does seem to like her. There are four brunettes, including Vanessa. She tells us that she came from a very affluent family, and was dubbed the "rich bitch" in high school. She goes on to say that she was in the "attractive girl" group, and that she's used to getting what she wants. I think Vanessa thinks she's auditioning for Hellcats. Jay tells the girls that he's excited, because there's some strong potential in the group.
