After the break, the scores are all added up and Tyra announces the winner of best picture of the week.
Piggy Nose has good reason to hope. She got the highest scores at panel.
But no, it is not Brittnay’s name that Tyra calls out. Best photo goes to Victoria! One thing about Tyra, she’ll reward your humility as much as she’ll punish your hubris.
Ironically, for the first time, Victoria did not seem to expect to win.
So Victoria will get the key to the Tyra suite. Who do you think she’ll pick to share the room with? I’m guessing she may just choose to keep it to herself.
The order they are called after best picture is as follows:
Piggy Nose Monster Jaw (Brittnay)
My girl from FSU (Allyssa)
Totes Snags (Leila)
Pumpkin Blonde (Laura)
Heroin Chic (Kristin)
That leave Darian and Yvonne in our bottom two. Bottom being the critical word here. Since our Totes Curve girl has a great one, it is she who gets to stay.
Tyra tries to make the social media score have more significance and add a little drama by saying the girls were tied by the panel judges, so it is up to America to decide who to keep. “It’s so tight it’s crazy,” Tyra says as I grip my remote control with one hand, my husbands thigh with the other and sit on the edge of my couch. Not.
Here’s the weird thing:
As Tyra hands Yvonne her picture, she still has one in her hands.
I’m thinking, since Maria went home already she’s going to let Darian stay too. Darian has been crying since the bottom six girls were standing around, so she’s pretty much a blubbering mess now.
Tyra says she knows Darian is devestated at coming so far and she wonders if Darian wishes she could do it all over again. It seems really condescending and then Tyra says, “well, guess what.”
Darian falls to her knees in supplication.
I’ve got the power to destroy your world, honey.
Suddenly, the picture in Tyra’s hand has magically disappeared.
No Darian, it is not meant to be. Instead of saving her, Tyra simply spills the beans that she will still be competing in the photoshoots and has a chance to return if the fans vote for her. To me it looked like Tyra was considering saving her and changed her mind at the last minute. What do you think?
And so, our episode ends with a shattered Darian saying her good-byes.
Do you think the right girl went home this week? My feeling is they are only keeping Depresstiny in the competish so she gets some good meals in her.
