The girls returned to their house after last panel where Kendal was eliminated. Liz was happy that she got best photo and her picture was featured in the house. Ann got teary again because she has no confidence and just talking seems to make her cry.
Tyra Mail: “To be a top model, you will need help with posin'” Miss J showed up at the house to let the gals know that they would be walking in a Zac Posen runway show for his latest line Z Spoke. Then Zac showed up and told the girls that they would be walking with real runway models. The girls got a little Q&A with him and he revealed that he looked for personality on the runway.
At the Z Spoke backstage Miss J told the girls that the winner of the challenge would win five outfits from the collection. Then Miss J met with the real models and told them to be mean to the ANTM models. Backstage the girls were getting criticized by the models and Ann looked like she would cry again, especially when told that she wasn’t Zac’s usual model type. Chris seemed to take it the best and just tried to ignore their comments.
On the runway, Chelsey and Kayla rocked it. Ann almost fell down and looked like she was going to cry. Esther tried to sashay but she ended up shaking her boobs and body around jerkily. After the runway Miss J told the girls that the other models were told to be mean and that it was a test because models need to have thick skins. Just ask Tyra about Naomi Campbell. Anyway then Zac showed up and they critiqued the walks. Zac loved Kayla and Chelsey. Liz put her chin up too high. Esther needed to learn control. Chris’s steps were too short. Jane looked beautiful but her body didn’t. So Chelsey won and shrieked with joy.
The next day Mr. Jay and Nigel showed up at the house to let the girls know about the next modeling job. The girls would have to shoot a commercial (shot by Nigel), on roller skates for H2T water on Venice Beach. H2T was actually a fake product and a reference to Tyra saying “head to toe,” as in a model needs to model head to toe. Anyway so Ann almost cried again because she hated roller skates because they would make her even taller than she was now. Argh someone shoot her already.
At the shoot Kayla broke down because she would have to be with a guy again. She told Mr. Jay that she was sexually assaulted when she was 11 and feared men ever since. Jay told her she needed to overcome her fears and not let them get the best of her. Mr. Jay was actually nice instead bitchy. Kayla managed to get over her fear for the shoot and impressed Jay and Nigel.
Liz didn’t impress Nigel because she laughed too much and wasted time. He even told her that real shoots cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Ann was so fearful of failure at the shoot that she failed miserably. It was actually funny but depressing to watch. Ok granted the girl is gawky but she made it to the show and got best picture five times in a row so shouldn’t she have a bit more confidence? She’s the kind of person that people love to make cry just because it’s so easy. So anyway she looked like she was going to cry when she delivered her lines and she fell over a bunch of times. It was a disaster. She didn’t even look like she was trying. But Nigel told her “you’re alive.”
At panel Chris’s commercial was good, Jane knew her lines and Esther looked like a model.
The winner this week was… Chris! Yay. Ann looked like she would… cry, again. Then the photos called were Jane, Chelsey, Kayla and Liz.
Bottom two: Ann and Esther
Will the models please step forward.
Who is eliminated? Esther
