This week, the show was introduced with Ms. Attitude Alexandria’s winning photo from the prior challenge (featured on last week’s episode). Although she was proud and boastful of her achievements, the other girls could not help but talk poorly about this braggart of a girl. Sara (rat tail) talked briefly about her plans upon her return home if she could not make it through the entire competition, her plans being to go back to school and “start off small” (with a modeling career). Alexandria, overhearing Sara’s talk with the other girls, could not help but take offense to Sara’s plans. She, then, questioned Sara’s obligations to being a model.
Tyra mail came again, and the girls were given lines to memorize for the upcoming challenge. The girls arrived to the challenge and were introduced to guest judge and notable photographer Francesco Carrozzini. This challenge proved to be irregular once again. The girls were given the lines because they were going to be featured on an upcoming coffee commercial as opposed to a photo shoot. They walked on to the 1960’s retro set, and filmed their commercial in pairs of two. Sara had the biggest problem with filming the commercial since it went against her personal standards. She is a feminist, and the commercial featured, what she called, a stereotypical woman’s role. About half of the teams succeeded in the commercial, but the other half fell short of Tyra’s ideals. Kasia’s team was said to have the best commercial and one of the top moments in this shows history.
Alexandria indeed has the biggest attitude problem of all the girls. She thinks she knows what she is doing, enough for her to down-talk the guest judges, twice! Tyra finally notices, and she is getting tired of it. Next week’s teaser shows the girls getting even more annoyed with Alexandria and her bad attitude. It is time for her to go home. As for Sara, she wasn’t the prettiest, but she definitely stood out. It was sad to see her go home. Also, will Tyra ever age?! I wonder if she has gotten any work done… Maybe we will see on next week’s episode of America’s Next Top Model.
