Rosanna gets her picture taken a few times (in short hair with red streaks) as Nicole tells us in a split screen that it's nice to watch the other girls get their pictures taken because it makes her less nervous. Rosanna tells us in a split screen that she hopes these pictures "come out nice." She has a freakish belly button.
Maile poses and wiggles her head around a bit while the photographer keeps reminding her to keep her chin up. She tells us in a split screen that she was nervous. Who is this show for? Is it for people that want to be models? Is it for teenage boys looking for masturbatory material? Because it's certainly not for me. I was so excited about getting some sort of Spice Girls Grrl Power Catfights and More show out of this and this snooze fest is so damn disappointing.
Ana Maria stands awkwardly in the faux desert while Carlo takes more shots.
The narrator tells us that the girls' energy is getting low, and Carlo is getting impatient with them. As they try and take a group shot, Carlo is screaming that they aren't showing enough inner strength. He barks that they should change their bodies with every frame. Ivette stands there like a zombie. The girls stand and try to smile. The narrator explains that Carlo is having problems getting the girls to feel comfortable standing there getting their pictures taken.
Carlo holds up a sample photo for the girls. Everyone likes it but Ivette. She says that it's her screwing up the picture and she doesn't know what to do. Rosanna just stares. Maile takes a second, cocks her head and whines, "Ivette!" Nicole is too busy scrutinizing over her own body in the picture to notice anything is going on. Maile and Rosanna start chanting, "Be yourself!" while Carlo silently fumes in Ivette's direction. Maile tries to tell Ivette that she's pretty, but a makeup woman jams her fingers into Maile's mouth while she's talking to fix her lipstick. Ivette says that she's not a serious person and that she's usually laughing. They all cave in and tell her she can laugh if that'll make her take the fucking shot without whining.
Ivette tells us that she was feeling vulnerable and overwhelmed. "There were times I was fighting back tears." How is this supposed to make her endearing at all? Ivette says that it was totally noticeable that she was uncomfortable in the pictures. We get a split screen for proof.
Carlo reminds us that this is difficult. Thanks, Carlo.
Luckily they hand out some Valium to the girls before the second set of shots, so they're "loosened up" and ready to go. Ana Maria reminds us that they are very behind in the shooting schedule. Because I fucking care.
