True Beauty Premiere
As the hapless hotties pile into their chariot, Minnillo voice-overs that the contestants aren't just going to be measured, they'll also be facing their next secret challenge. Sneaky!
In the waiting room, Laura asks Ray what he does. Chelsea, who doesn't appreciate it when the topic of conversation isn't her, makes fun of Laura's accent, which causes Joel to jump in and get bitchy with her. (He's still not over her unfriendly response to his amazing drumming skills!) Joel decides to be "straight up" with Chelsea by telling her he doesn't like her. But before the shit can really fly, Dr. Palmer, so-called beauty expert, shows up to talk to everyone about his method of measuring beauty. He says he's going to take their measurements and compare them to an ideal set of shapes, proportions and angles to determine their beauty number. He introduces his assistant Debbie, whom Minnillo voice-overs is actually a plant who will try to get a rise out of the contestants.
First to be measured is Julia. During measurements, Debbie mutters that she has a "granny butt," but Julia merely flutters her eyes. After she's measured, the doc and his "assistant" leave, and Minnillo explains that each contestant will be left alone, within reach of their fellow competitors' files to see whether they sneak a peak. Julia doesn't look, so she passes.
Next is CJ, whom Debbie informs has some funky feet. He does too! CJ says he'd be interested to see Debbie's feet, which she assures him are totally adorable. CJ, visibly ruffled, starts grilling Dr. Palmer about whether this method truly presents an accurate reading of someone's beauty. He then compares Dr. Palmer's career to crack-selling. Someone's a little defensive, methinks! CJ also resists looking at the charts of his colleagues, but when he gets back to the waiting room, he begins to trash Nurse Debbie for making fun of his feet.
Next is Laura, who doesn't fall prey to any of Debbie's taunts but does flip through some of the files, so therefore automatically fails. All the judges act duly horrified.
