Brittani is so stoked that Molly and her are in the top two, and she is so happy to be here, showing her mother what she can do. Molly also feels very happy to be here, happy to make her mom proud, knowing that becoming a better person is the best thing that can come out of this experience. Brittani thinks Molly is confident about taking good pictures but nervous because Brittani thinks of herself as more high fashion. Tyra mail is three words from the Moroccan language that they may or may not be using in their cover girl commercial. The next morning when they go to their first event for the day, they get one on one interviews with Ivan from IMG models. He though Molly had the magic in her photos, and that he was interested in seeing Brittani on the runway. The very next scene the girls met Mister Jay for their cover girl commercials, they were going to be shot on a white background from three different camera angles with a teleprompter showing them their script in the center. The product is cover girl lip profection, and Mister Jay really wanted them to make their personality shine. Molly thought she was better suited because Brittani seemed to be having some anxiety issues, but Mister Jay just wanted them to be themselves and move in their own space. He thought Molly was over thinking it. and that she was so concerned with being herself and being a model, so fixed on meeting the two she lost some of her charm. Brittani wants to pull ahead but she sounded like she was reading off a laundry list and it made Jay a little nervous, but she brought enough confidence for a genuine commercial, and she ended really well. She was quirky and comfortable and did a really good commercial.
Then they immediately went to take their beauty in vogue cover shots, the photographer thought Molly had a beautiful smile, perfect face, and a wonderful shoot, but the photographer thought Brittani was the model of the past. The next day they went for their italian vogue spread shoot, they were looking for strong energy, and Brittani was the one they enjoyed working with the most. They liked how she took charge and she was very professional, whilst Molly was cranky and annoyed with the entire thing. Brittani was hoping that her bad mood would affect her the rest of the competition giving her an edge. When the girls get home, Molly is surprised that her parents are there waiting for her, she was adopted and she mentions again how grateful she is. It makes Brittani sad because she knows her mom can’t be here because of her health issues, and she says that its so disheartening when she’s always looking for someone and no one is ever there. Later on she gets to video chat with her mom about everything and her mom tells her she would be there if she could.
That night they got a Tyra mail that said tomorrow’s runway will be modeling mania, which means its time for the final runway. They Mister Jay the next day at a palace where they will be wearing Vivian Westwood in a salon style fashion show for 1600 people. They will be wearing her newest line, Anglomania with their friends Kasia, Alenandria, Hannah, and of course last cycle’s winner Ana. Alex is rooting for Molly, Hannah is rooting for Brittani and Kasia is split between the two, Brittani expects better from herself because her runway has been consistantly better than Molly. Tyra talks to Molly and her family telling them how Molly has told her how much she appreciates them and that she is so proud. Tyra then talks to Brittani and she says its okay because she didn’t expect her mom to be there, and Tyra tells her that the industry needs strength like hers and to work it out there. Ana goes first and she’s a big hit, Molly and two others pose and then Molly walked down the middle of the room, and looks great. Kasia goes, then Hannah, and then Brittani who gets a so good comment from one of the judges. Back stage is a mad house with everyone running around, pushed back and forth, getting ready for their next walk, Molly goes a second lap, she looks great and has beautiful rhythm like a whole nother person. Brittani’s second run gives her a rush of confidence that makes her feel like she looks golden. Alexandria takes the final lap before both Molly and Brittani walk the floor, posing together, it was hard because the other didn’t know what the one would do and it made Brittani giggle. They were walking out when Brittani tripped, couldn’t catch herself, and hurt her ankle real bad. Molly helped her up but she was limping back stage, she also cut her wrist on the way down and Mister Jay asked her to make it through the last goodbye where the models walk in a circle and clap. She keeps going but is disappointed in herself, then Ivan and Mister Jay come back to tell the girls they are going to get a new look for panel which has never been done before on Top Model. He tells them they are officially models now and that they should go with the flow.
Up next was panel where both Molly and Brittani had extremely short pixie cuts, Brittani’s was slightly shorter than Molly’s, hers had what looked like a little more bangs. Brittani went up first, they liked her urban walk, and that she was about to come back from her fall. They liked that she worked with Molly but Tyra hated that she giggled during the performance, it was very unprofessional. For her commercial, Jay liked that she let nothing bother her, he thought she was pretty much perfect. The judges thought Brittani’s ad was stunning, brilliant, and made them want the lipstick. The only thing Andre didn’t like was that her left hand was very heavy. In deliberation the judges looked through practically all the photos the girls did before, and judged on them. They loved Brittani’s long neck, and thought she was always a surprise, and then they focused back on this weeks work. They were proud that even though she fell, she came out smiling and clapping, and you could not see the pain she was in. They thought Brittani had a uniqueness that was beautiful, they went back to an earlier double girl picture, they thought that Brittani was wearing the hat compared to it wearing her. She gets into the character, she has an emotional soul, and they liked that she seemed more romantic. Then it was Molly’s turn, they loved her walk and she seemed to have a signature shake to her, but at one point she looked kinda cheep and it was obvious she was thinking about the walk and her nervous took over. Sometimes she had too much bounce and she needs to work on smoothing her transitions when she pauses. Molly’s commercial was gorgeous however she looked like a mean girl and that isn’t cover girl. Its not inviting, but Jay did say however that she read the entire script from memory and for him, was completely charming. For Molly’s ad, she seemed committed to it, the light was stunning, and she looked soft and gentle. She helped deliver the image, she was wonderfully framed, almost like a tigress but not intimidating, more of an enchanted danger. In deliberation, they thought she had a great profile and totally had the top model it factor. They believed she was on top of the camera, and completely living in the moment. I believe it was Andre who loved her body movements and shapes, that she had a natural portfolio and was not the average blond at all. They agreed that Molly sells clothes, but in one her pictures her hat was wearing her, she wasn’t wearing the hat. Andre loves how the light sits on her face and thinks that she would be booked for her young new now look, and Jay just had to point out that she nailed three best photos in a row.
The girls come back, hold hands, and await Tyra’s final announcement. And America’s new top model is… Brittani! Girl from the trailer part is now an IMG model, a cover girl, and is going to be in Italian Vogue; Tyra tells her to take that and run with it. Tyra tells Molly that rejection hurts but it doesn’t make us stop, and that she can still be a very successful model.
