The photo shoot begins, with their model rocking every primary color combination on earth at one point or another. All the while, Kate takes a leadership role in the Peanut Gallery. She criticizes them for not doing enough hair and makeup styling on the model, saying they've managed to make even color boring. Megan finally marches toward the inevitable Praying Mantis place we knew she would by turning, ever so subtly, on Dyshaun. She TH's that she and Johanna weren't necessarily feeling Dyshaun's ideas but that it was hard to communicate because he was so strong-headed. And now you know how Kate, Jason, William, Cologne, and, well, basically everyone but you and Ashlie, feels. Johanna, a proven failure as a leader, says she consciously stepped back and let Dyshaun take the reins. This move could be A.) Devious, B.) Desperate, or C.) Defensive. More likely, though, it's D.) All of the above.
Next up, Kate and Ashlie kick off their hair and makeup session, leaning toward an Old Hollywood look. In their first shot, the model looks gorgeous, and the photos are pretty dynamic -- as opposed to the other team's catalog-y poses. Kate explains that the story is about a girl who is captive in a black and white world; she eventually breaks free and embraces color! They style her like Courtney Love by way of Nancy Spungen for the black-and-white clothing shot, and she does all sorts of "Roar! I'm imprisoned by my monochromatic clothes!" expressions. Kate acknowledges they're taking a risk with this high-concept story.
As was done to them, Dyshaun and Megan spend most of the shoot sniping at the other team. Kate believes Dyshaun is so ornery because he's scared of being eliminated. By the time they get to the infamous swimsuit shot, Ashlie notes that Dyshaun and Megan had quieted down because they were shaking in their boots. To wit, each of the other team's members individually concedes defeat as Ashlie and Kate rambunctiously toss water on their electric blue bikini-clad model. Kate annoyingly finishes the shot by squeaking a thank-you to the model and hugging the life out of her. The model looks wholly uncomfortable -- perhaps because Kate just broke one of her ribs.
