Tyson shows up to give the models a quick run-through on how to walk. "It's confidence," says Debbie, as Tyson does the stroll. "That's all that really matters." It probably helps if you look like Tyson, though. They all start walking, and Jay again looks really stiff. "Aw, come on," Tyson yells. "I know, in the ATL, you don't walk like that!" Busted. Debbie says that there's something she really likes about Holly. She's a diamond in the rough. Agreed. Sarah, she says, would be more at home on a shampoo commercial. Is that a total burn in the modeling universe? Probably. Debbie says that Katy is just not memorable or exciting. She kind of giggles when she says it, which fills me with hate. Shannon, meanwhile, has potential, but because she's so tall and so long-torsoed, her walk is a little strange. Jacki, for whatever reason, they love. Again, she's beautiful, but either they're intentionally not showing whatever it is that makes her so great, or I'm just dumb. Debbie says that she has the fundamentals down.
When all the models walked in that day, says Jennifer, she noticed Casey right away. But when he got on the runway... "I couldn't believe it," she says. "I thought he was actually...joking." With that, she and Debbie break down in guffaws, like teenaged girls. Truth be told, he is trying way too hard and looks a fool.
To the side, Tyson talks to Perry, who has some physical problems going on. Back home, he was trying to stay in shape playing basketball, and rolled his ankle. It looks messed up, and is still sore, but he's determined to tough it out. Now, I don't always believe in playing hurt, and I do know that leaving something like that without taking care of it can mess you up, but Perry seems cool about it. I am reminded of the bullshit one might see on other modeling shows where some girl gets a headache and just can't bring herself to put on the giant lobster claws and hang from a building that day.
