The models return to New York, and everyone seems pretty jealous that they all got booked. Jordan, of course, hates Amanda and says a chill ran up her spine when she heard her voice. Do you think these two will have an altercation? Laury, who is listed as "Unemployed," says that she congratulates them, but will be trying that much harder now.
At the catwalk, Nicole is wearing a corset and ratted hair. She says that some fashion shows are performance art. They will be drawing from the shows of Alexander McQueen and Maison Martin Margiela and styled as freaks. Their walk has to juxtapose their fashion. Nicole demonstrates for them. She does a traditional staggering Louis XIV thing. It looks good. Then, she has the models practice. Shawn goes first and looks like a troll -- Nicole tells him that he looks drunk. Jonathan and Amanda suck, too. Laury seems to get it and hits some really beautiful lines. Colin looks like he's blind. CJ is, of course, guarded. She interviews, "Who the fuck thought this was a good idea?" That's pretty funny, actually.
As they are getting styled, they keep on practicing, but it's awful. The show begins and Jordan is first. She has an interesting swagger to her walk, but it's certainly not avant-garde. Her booty is hanging out of her outfit, though. I've noticed that a lot of people on the forums have an issue -- her hips are pretty wide, aren't they? It's horrible to say, considering how small she really is. True, though. Jonathan is next and seems really weird. For his pose as he's leaving, he pulls the pockets out from his pleated pants, making a flared look. Colin staggers down the runway next. It's bad. He has a pretty strong pose as he's leaving and you see these freaky Marilyn Manson contacts that he and some of the other models are wearing. CJ is next and does a cat-like walk. She says that she's not really comfortable and hopes to just get by this week. Kerryn is next and says that she feels free to experiment, because she has immunity, though she still feels the need to impress the judges. Here's Shawn. He's wearing a ridiculous unitard, and his walk is really weird. He's holding something in the air and walking really slowly. Then, he does this, like, hip-hop heartbeat thing at the end of the catwalk. Awkward. He says that he's wanted to be a supermodel since he was 14. Amanda, who has antlers shaped on her hand, walks like she's hunting. Then, she gets sexy and blows a kiss. Gabe is next and is completely boring, though, goddamn, his body is amazing. Laury comes out and has a graceful, interesting walk. She says that she is drawing from her Haitian background. Salome has a really cool zombie walk. I love it. She interviews that she's not afraid to be weird and loves being styled like a freak. Branden comes out in a nest of feathers and sort of lumbers down the catwalk. Not entirely inventive, but he looks confident. Mountaha is next and takes the Nicole-pretty freak approach. She interviews that this has been the hardest catwalk challenge. Sandhurst's walk is great. It's like he's being pulled down the runway. He has a cinematic jerky quality to his walk that reminds me of a David Fincher movie.
