They move on to Perry, to congratulate him for his heroism in walking with a broken foot. "That man walked circles around all of you," says Tyson, fully serious and totally dramatic, and I almost die.
The panel is thrilled with Holly's work on the catwalk today. Each of them compliments her, and Jennifer asks who she thinks is her biggest competition. "Determination-wise," she drawls, "Jacki, 'cuz she's very determined." And, she says, she thinks Shannon is also a threat, since she looks so high-fashion, and that's what Holly wants to do.
The judges are not, however, so thrilled with Dominic, who they say was stiff. He says -- and he actually says this, I am not making it up -- that his necklace was too heavy and made his back "ache," so he had trouble staying loose. Somehow, the panel holds it together and does not break down in tears laughing, and Tyson kindly tells him to tough it out.
The contestants are all sent back to the dressing room so that the panel can pick which three are going up for the vote. They go through the contestants. Katy is determined, and they admire that, but she's girlfriend-cute. Casey can't walk, but he looks great, and they can fix him. "[Holly is] a beautiful girl," says Cory, "but that hair! That's a hair NOT!" Seriously, I don't get it at all. Her hair is super-cool and distinctive; to me, it loudly says high fashion. I have to wonder if Cory isn't being cast as the hair-hater here, and that they naturally love Holly so much they're having to make up things to dislike about her. They love Shannon's photo from the freezing photo shoot, and they're impressed with the way she listens to instruction and adapts, especially in her crazy walk. They are not feeling Sarah. "Maybe commercials," says Tyson. "She's not ugly, don't get me wrong. She's not ugly." Nice. They, of course, love Jacki, though everyone is disappointed in her thong-refusal. "I don't get that very often," Jennifer says. "I don't think I've ever gotten that." Exactly. Tyson says again that she would be fired.
Niki doesn't like Dominic's photo at all, and I can't blame her -- he looks frozen, like a dude-sicle. Cory, inexplicably, likes it, but Jennifer doesn't get the supermodel vibe from Dominic.
Niki says they've made some sort of decision: "We know who's safe." They bring out a random assortment of seven from the group -- saying that they're the ones to come out because they did the best and the worst, which is confusing, because those words mean opposite things, Niki -- and begin excusing the besties. Holly is safe because she did the best across the board. Perry impressed them all with his broken foot, but he did awesome in the photo and the runway, and is safe. Shannon is safe because, basically, she's bad-ass.
