Shenanigans ensue, but all is soon eclipsed by the performance of the guys' boy band, "Serenade." All due props must be given, here, because that name is hilarious. The song is embarrassing and terrible, but they go for it. "You put all of our asses in the bottom three/but we're still standin', fine as can be!" Niki loves it, as does the crowd, but Shannon says in an interview that she is sure Niki liked the cake better. Shannon is really irritable tonight, y'all, and it may be because she has not eaten any food in a long time. Her shoulders look like they could slice cheese. We see the GQ
style editor giving Holly and Shannon tips on how they need to "work the room" and how in the business "it's who you know." Shannon decides this is the week she's going to act like she knows everything, and where I
would just have said "oh, you're so right," and walked away to mingle, she retorts that she feels like there's a way to work the room that is more subtle and causes partygoers to gravitate toward her. Look, maybe she's right, but the problem she and all these kids are having week after week is that they forget they're twenty-two and stupid and have never worked as models, so the thing to do is shut up. It's so easy, and yet, no one can do it. She says that the boys are so loud and boisterous, but that there's something to be said for subtlety. I'm about to reiterate the shut up rule when the magazine dude goes over to Perry to share a drunken conversation about how models, if they're girls in this town, have gotta loosen up if they want to make an impression. Nice. In an interview, he explains his position. He thinks Holly and Shannon are really interesting and all, but he wants them to have a little more flavor. "I don't want to admire you," he says, so cleverly. "I wanna, you know, sleep with you." Sigh. Gee, thank you for spelling it out, because I just wasn't getting
what you meant when you waggled your eyebrows and said they needed to loosen up. "You gotta have some attitude, man," he continues. "Maybe
one or two of them have it." I do not love this ho.
Speaking of hos I don't love, Ronnie, Ben and Casey ride to their next morning's assignment together and talk about how they've left Perry for dead, tainting him by making him ride to the shoot with the girls. I'm sorry, are these idiots in sixth grade? Like they made Perry ride in the CootieMobile? Granted, it looks like the chicks are not exactly setting the dawn on fire with their witty repartee. I have a feeling that, unlike the guys' car, no fart jokes are being told, no nipples are getting twisted, and no wet willies are being administered. Perry faux-snores as Shannon and Holly attempt an interesting conversation for the camera about how Holly's hardest photo shoot was right after they cut her hair. Finally, Shannon snaps at Perry for being "so rude" with his eye-rolling, and she is right, he is. He's a funny guy, but a huge narcissist and it's so unattractive as a combo when exposed to him long-term.
