Branden interviews that he needs to improve this week, as he was almost in the bottom two last week. Well, he doesn't. He face is tense and his body apparently doesn't look toned enough. Odd, because he looks pretty yummy from here. It's kind of odd to see him all hot and naked, getting admonished by Bill and Tyson. This may be a new fetish genre: Nude Model Humiliation. Bill takes Tyson aside and says that the shoot is not working -- a client would call for a reshoot if this is what they got. They try again and it still doesn't go entirely well. Stripped bare with bleeding testicles and no decent shots, Branden is bummed.
Later, at the condo, Branden is a mess. He's all writing in his journal with a blue headband on, then he's crying to Mountaha and Amanda about missing his mom. Amanda interviews that it's cute and sad to see. She adds that, though this is a competition, they need to be here for each other. That's a sweet sentiment. Later, the girls (minus Amanda) are talking about the day's shoot. Mountaha says that she feels like she overcame an obstacle today. Salome is happy to have a nudie shot in her book.
The next day, Nicole arrives with the photos. Her accent is so crazy. I'm seriously stunned that she's Australian and not Italian or something. Jonathan's shot is pretty awesome. It's pretty shadowy throughout, except on his brightly lit ass. Branden asks to see it a second time and Jonathan replies, "I'll get a copy for you, Branden." Gay Panic Branden does not like this, but laughs it off. Salome looks at her picture and loves it. Nicole tells her that her body looks great, but Sandhurst interviews that a lot of Salome's body was missing. I'm assuming that he thinks that Salome's body was a liability and the cropping gives her an unfair advantage. Branden's photo is next and though he's a hot piece, the photo is not that special. He doesn't like it, either. Mountaha loves her photo. Her back is to the camera and really shows off the shoes. Sandhurst loves his as well. He looks good, which he acknowledges and says, "The truth is the truth." Then, he pauses and takes it back because it's too conceited. Jordan is thrilled with her photo. Amanda hates hers. I guess it's a little blah, but she's crying about it, which seems extreme.
Cory Bautista calls. He wants to speak to... Salome. She screams for joy, and Jordan gives a look like, "Oh my god, calm down." I sort of just hate Jordan now. Even when I agree with her, her attitude is so relentlessly negative. Salome interviews that she loves that the "biggest-butted girl" won the nude photo shoot. Her go-see is at Vitra, "one of the most innovative design companies in the world." So says Cory. She has the chance of being featured in a future Vitra ad campaign. Mountaha mentions as well that Salome's picture featured only her upper body. Looks like she chose the right accessory to me. She chooses Jordan to go with her on the go-see. In the car, Jordan says that everyone in the house is annoying, even the people who she likes. Salome agrees, everyone is annoying, even Jordan. Jordan seems shocked, but tries to act like she knows that she's annoying.
