Some girl explains auditions to a group of auditioners. I'll spare you. I'll also spare you this montage of people singing vocal warm-ups, doing push-ups, and such.
Oh, people. Jennifer Kumiyama, twenty-one, Long Beach, CA, has always wanted to be famous. She's also always been in a wheelchair. She does musical theater in her community. She wheels up and sings her ass off. She's got a good voice like you're in church and you've got to put your hands up. Jaymes says she's got a "tremendous voice," and they decide to ask her how she thinks she'll be able to fit in a pop world when she's in a wheelchair. Jennifer says she's been living in a non-wheelchair world for sixteen years, and she's not going to let anything get in her way. She says she's dealt with musical theater choreography, and she knows it'll be tougher in the pop world, but she's ready to deal with any challenges. She says she's ready and willing to do whatever she has to do to get where she needs to be. Surprisingly, Jaymes doesn't ask her, "So, you mean you'll learn to walk if we give you a callback?" She does say they'll have to figure out what to do with her when she comes back tomorrow. Everyone applauds like Lucas made a touchdown. Jennifer tells us she's very happy she got a callback.
Kirsten and Ashley Laiken are nineteen and fraternal twins. The narrator informs us that they lived a "real-life Parent Trap." Their parents divorced, and one went to live with Dad, while the other lived with Mom. Now, one's a skank and one's a prude. Skank must have lived with Dad. They both tell us that the only thing they have in common is music, so it's nice to get to spend the evening together. Ashley is upset that Kirsten has hoed her up in lipstick, eye shadow, and a halter top. Kirsten sings first. "I'm Like A Bird" sounds like "I'm, Like, So Sure." Ashley sings "All I Want Is You." Boring. Jaymes turns to the others and says, "Aren't you just in shock?" Tony reminds Jaymes that it is an open call. Most L.A. actors aren't going to a cattle call unless their agents get them past the first callback. The girls are rejected, along with the rest of the group when the judges decide the girls are too nasaly. Kirsten explains it like this: "Obviously they don't know talent. And they don't know the right look. Because if they did, we would have made it." Well, there you go.
If you have a tape of this episode, hit pause right now so you can see this group of girls. Yikes. Cowboy hat and black pants shouldn't have worn her mesh bikini top to the audition. The other girl has no reason to wear a shirt with only one sleeve. We see all the girls leave at once as the narrator tells us that not everyone knows why they didn't make the cut, even when it's "painfully obvious" to the rest of us. Cue the reject reel!
