The next morning, the models arrive at a courthouse in New York, where they meet their photographer for the day, Sarah Silver. Apparently, Silver's specialty is shooting photographs that incorporate movement, as evidenced by her current position, hanging in a harness from the ceiling. "She was glidin'," Jay interviews. "Like Spider-Man!" Silver explains to the models that everything they can do on the ground, they can do hanging. "Moving, moving, moving," she says. "What are you wearing? What's your hair look like?" That was one sentence -- no, I'm serious, the way this is edited was enough to make me scream. She glides down to comment on their new haircuts and how it all translates into having new attitudes and how from the neck up, they have attitude, and the neck down, they're...moving. I know you're reading it and thinking I must be leaving some key words out of the paragraphs here, but actually, this is what is being said. Blessedly, the models go back to get ready in hair and makeup. Shannon, who we have barely seen this episode, is excited, speaking confidently of the new challenge. Shannon is awesome. So awesome, we will not see her again for the rest of the hour. To the side, Jacki says she doesn't want to end up in the bottom four again, and now that she's seen her outfit for the day, she feels good about the challenge. I just do not LIKE her, okay? She seems beguiled by her own charms -- like she's buying her own hype.
Ronnie's up first, and is less than excited to don the harness over his briefs. "Who wouldn't feel confident with one of these tuggin' away at you?" he laughs, shaking the thing. "Make sure I don't trap your junk," the harness operator tells him, and Ronnie figures he didn't need to breed anyway. Ronnie, by the way, looks fantastic. Really, just absolutely amazing, like some kind of Aryan poster-child meets James Dean. The photographer says he set the tone for the whole day, and Ronnie is sure to pass this message on to his fellow models. Too bad he couldn't have given Ben any tips, because our favorite prison guard goes out and cannot bring the energy at all. It probably doesn't help that Silver keeps yelling at him to "hit it! No, I mean, hit it!" He just doesn't know what to do, is the thing, and he doesn't have the confidence yet to let himself go. I think he thinks there's some "right way" to do this, when in fact he just needs to try to do it, rather then waiting for someone to give him the secret. In any case, he struggles.
