What is going on people? These last two weeks we’ve been thrown. People get sketchy reviews but a completely unexpected person ends up going home. Wanna know who got the axe this week? You’ve come to the right place.
After panel last week, the girls were refreshed; Kayla was inspired that this would be her path to her dream of being a model and Ann’s confidence was skyrocketing, she finally felt truly pretty. Chelsey felt the pressure, she believes this is the her biggest and her last chance. Tyra mail: ding dong- the girls found a pink bag at their door. It was a competition for cover girl, the girls were put into teams and told they had to work together to represent the product. Team one was Ann, Jane, and Kendel; team two was Kayla, Kacey, and Esther; team three was Liz, Chelsey, and Chris. The next day, the teams met Nigel Barker at a Walmart where they would have to represent the product to a group of Walmart customers. They would have to promote the benefits while learning to market the item and their self. Nigel said a spokes-girl should be authentic, personable, and charming; and the Walmart customers were going to be judge their presentations. The prize was a shopping spree in the CoverGirl isle of the Walmart store. They set up in a tent outside Walmart where the teams set up at tables to present the lash kit to the customers. Ann was nervous, Chelsey tried to be friendly, Chris was over zealous, Kayla attempted to share the sporty side, and Kacey was open and kind. Mixed in with the customers was a secret judge, Derek who is a fashion journalist but thats not all-the girls had to watch while Nigel asked the customers what they thought of the girls. The customers thought Ann was quiet, uncomfortable, and Derek said she was just not present. The customers like that Kayla showed the sporty side, and let them know that makeup wasn’t just for girly girls. Derek said that she was believable and that was key. The customers thought that Chelsey was trying really hard but that Chris was too overpowering. Nigel said that every girl was scored, the lowest score was Ann and the highest score was team two with Kacey. Liz said that she would have won if she was loud and fake but she wasn’t and Kacey was and thats why she won. They got to fill bags with makeup and take them home.
Tyra mail: tomorrow will be no walk of shame. it will be a walk of fame. The girls went to Rodeo Drive to do a photo-shoot where they would strut down with male models, two girls at a time. They would also have their own walking photo by themselves. They would be photographed by the most respected, legendary fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier while wearing clothes hand-picked by fashion stylist Lori Goldstein. Lori said that fashion was fun, mix and match and with high fashion you could try things you normally wouldn’t. Chelsey was amazed, she checked that off her fantasy list of goals; the pairs were Ann and Chelsey, Liz and Kendel, Kayla and Esther, Kacey and Jane, but Chris would go by herself. Tyra showed up, and they got started. Mister Jay thought Kacey fell flat; Patrick thought Jane was more commercial; Mister Jay had high hopes for Chelsey but she was really nervous. Mister Jay didn’t think Liz was noticeable; he thought Kendel was feeling it; Patrick thought Kayla was good but Tyra thought that she was too self conscious. Mister Jay thought Esther was photogenic; Ann was stressed; and Patrick thought Chris was fantastic. The girls had a hard day, especially Kayla who’s shoes were a size too small.
In front of panel the girls were judged together, and then individually judged on their walking photo. Liz and Kendel were both relaxed, but a judge said their eyes were more drawn to Kendel. The judges said that Kendel’s walking photo was fabulous while Liz wasn’t committing to an emotion. Kayla and Esther’s photo was engaging but Kayla wore her pain on her face; Kayla’s walking photo was awkward while Esther’s photo was very flowing. Kacey and Jane’s photo was extraordinary but Kacey wasn’t invested in the group; Kacey’s walking photo had good body language, and Jane’s photo was described as superb and high fashion. Ann and Chelsey’s photo worked best while still being charming; Ann was awkward live but worked it together in her photo while Chelsey’s photo cute, sweet, and pretty good all around. Chris’s photos were very ‘Teen Vogue’ but they liked that she had a story, but she could have had a bit more control.
In deliberation the judges made opinions on unknown beauty shots that were taken during the Rodeo Drive shoot. Surprise-more pictures! They liked Liz’s soft beauty; they thought Esther was sweet but shy which made her cute; Kayla looked stiff and uncomfortable; and they enjoyed Kendel’s natural beauty. The agreed Jane did better in the group and that she was indeed commercial; Kacey still had no life in her eyes but her confidence was something; and they thought Ann could easily be international and wanted to be inspired by her. They thought Chelsey was improving and that she was finding her edge, and they thought that Chris need more control but had good energy. Best photo was Ann, again, for the fifth time, and Tyra demanded she apologize for being so amazing. Second best was Jane, third was Kendel and so on and so forth until we got to the bottom two. The bottom two consisted of Kayla and Kacey, Tyra said they were both disconnected and Kayla was showing her pain in her photos while Kacey was too focused on herself. Thank the lord! Kayla got to stay but Tyra told her that modern fashion is not easy and the pain could only make her stronger. Kacey went home. Lets face it, she wasn’t that great! She was self-centered and utterly unbearable. Tyra told her she is beautiful but she needs more time, that she is not ready for the international, and she needs more practice. Yay!
So, Lexie’s gone. Kacey’s gone. Who’s going to start all the drama now? Will it be Liz? Who do you think will go home next week? Do you even think this is interesting at all because one person keeps winning week after week? Share with us in the forum! We yaks love to yak.
