The girls head to New Zealand, where they are greeted with a Maori performance atop a volcano and the news that they must head to go-sees immediately. This is particularly cruel, given that they've just endured a 22-hour flight, but not unusual for this show. As Krista says, "We smell like yesterday." They have four and a half hours to see six designers, and are given cabs and a map to aid them. The girls run into each other at the various go-sees, and Raina in fact sprints past Alex to get to one designer first. Though designers agree that Raina has a lovely face, her walk is bad and she has kind of a weird body. Alasia is finding her swagger, and with her body would make a good swimsuit model. Designers find Krista very striking, though Jessica is deemed too commercial by several. Alex is too casual in her Ugg boots, and one designer notes that she has bad skin. And then there's Angelea. Her hair is a mess, so she decides to wow the designers with her personality. She manages to do it, because she gets to all six go-sees and all of the designers love her.
Only Jessica, Angelea and Alexandra make it back to the agency on time, which is of course a crucial part of the go-see challenge. Krista is only three minutes late, but is still disqualified. Since she had last week's best photo, however, she still gets to share in the prize and receives a piece from every go-see designer. Raina's cab is stuck in traffic, so she decides to walk. Bad move, since she gets stuck in a rainstorm and lost. Disqualified. Alasia is, of course, the latest of all. She left her map behind at her last go-see, and arrives at the agency forty-five minutes after her deadline. She is disqualified, and gets a particularly stern talking-to. Of the three girls who got back on time, it's no contest. Jessica booked only one out of four go-sees, and Alexandra booked zero out of four. Angelea, however, booked a whopping six out of six. She gets a confidence boost and a gown from each designer.
The girls move into their new gorgeous penthouse suite and waste no time in seeing a giant rainbow. That's SO New Zealand! They head to the week's photo shoot, which has them all wearing the exact same giant, billowy black dress in the wind and posing with a sheep named Prince. He's clearly the real star. Nigel is the photographer. Despite struggling for the past few weeks, Alex really turns it out on this shoot and gets up close and personal with Prince. Nigel and the other judges love it. Raina is her usual fantastic self. Angelea is not good at all. She compounds her terrible photo by doing a drunk club walk on the runway. Probably by virtue of booking all of her go-sees, she doesn't land in the bottom two, but you can see "WTF?" thought bubbles emerging from the judges' heads. Krista is terrified of animals, but practically becomes Prince's lover by the end. Her performance is brilliant, and her photo is once again named the best of the week. This leaves Jessica and Alasia in the bottom two. Both were lackluster, and seemed lost. In a bit of a surprise move, it's Jessica who stays and our lovely and weird Alasia who is sent home to be as messy and late as she wants to be.
Previously on America's Next Top Model: The girls got dragalicious with some queens and Whitney Port fashions, which was only slightly less high-fashion than being outfitted completely in human hair. The majority of the girls learned that they were going to be sent to the fashion capital of New Zealand, while Anslee learned that she was eliminated for not being able to model H2T. Six bitches remain!
The girls head home in their limo, and celebrate their imminent New Zealand trip. Alexandra is a bit subdued, as she is infused with the sepia-toned memory of falling in the bottom two. She admits that she deserved it, since her picture was so heinous. It really, really was. Alexandra hopes that New Zealand will provide a new beginning, and that she'll be able to show the passion that Tyra requested of her. Meanwhile, we are reminded that Krista, as part of her prize for having the week's best photo, is going to fly first class to New Zealand. She gets to share her good fortune with a buddy, and so chose Angelea to accompany her. Angelea tells that Krista is her girl, but she'll have to watch out for her as well, since there can only be one. It's always the best when the super stank BFFs turn on each other, isn't it? Its inevitability never decreases its delightfulness.
Back at the house, Krista is excited to see her best-of-week photo and she does her celebration dance with soon-to-be-frenemy Angelea. She tells us that, as tough as it was to ascend to the top of the ranks, staying on top is going to be even harder. Alasia packs and tells us that she's surprised that she's gotten this far in the competition. She adds that the other girls underestimated her, and thought that she was dumb or lacked common sense. In all fairness, she did pose with her hand over her ass crack in the first photo shoot. If it weren't for the fact that ALT happens to like that look, she very well may have been out the door. Alasia says that she's bringing her kudo bars. Is that actually a saying? Because all I can think about now is the vaguely healthy deliciousness of Kudos' chocolatey covered goodness. They were surpassed perhaps only by Carnation Instant Breakfast Bars and that other 1980's treat, Fruit Roll-Ups. Wash them down with a Capri Sun and you've basically experienced my childhood.
Their bags packed, the girls head to the airport and the next thing we know we're chillin' in first class with Angelea and Krista. The beds are so curvy! They toast, with some sort of drink made of liquid gold, and enjoy their personal TVs as they mock the other girls. And then everyone is in Auckland! Ah, New Zealand, land of magical beauty and sheep. Jessica tells us that she thought New Zealand was roughly above Canada. This is evidence that children are being left behind every day, folks. Jessica comments that New Zealand kind of looks like Arkansas, which it totally does not. She then confessionalizes that she's always been under someone's wing -- her mom, her dad, her shotgun husband. She's now having a ton of new experiences and spreading her wings, and she loves it.
