To sweeten the deal, she tells the girls that each time they earn the Tyra suite, they will get $10,000 deposited in their “scholarship” account! How freaking cool is that??? Oh, but wait, they only get the money if they win the entire competition. This could be cruel. Imagine someone wins 5 challenges but comes in as the runner up. It would be devastating. These are college girls, they need the money!
Depresstiny tells us, in her vivacious manner, how
terrified she is of her student loans.
Tyra what the hell are you doing with that key?
And why is your eye drooping?

After they meet with Tyra, the girls all head into their huge back yard to hang out and enjoy the day. There’s a life size chess board on the grass that a few girls dabble with, but most seem to be lounging by the pool.
Back in the house, Keira is sharing photos of her siblings with Victoria and Laura. She tells them she’s the oldest of seven kids and explains that since she had an absent mother, she raised the kids. You can see how much she loves them as she pours over their photos. Victoria mentions wistfully that she should have brought pictures of her mom. Yep, mom.
As night falls, for some reason, more than half the girls are once again crammed onto the red couches.
Is there no other place to relax in this house?
Leila moans how much she misses her boyfriend and a poll is taken to see who has a boyfriend. I find it stunning that in this day and age these younger kids wouldn’t think to make the question a little more gender neutral, but maybe things have gotten less interesting since I went to college.
Anyway, the important thing here is not who has a boyfriend, but rather that Victoria has never had a boyfriend and never intends to get one. Ever.
“I get all of the satisfaction of a relationship that I need from my mom.
I don’t feel like I should be stigmatized or ostracized for that.”
Okay, but how about medicated?
She goes on to explain to the girls that her mom is so selfless to her, she can’t imagine any man treating her as good.
She be crazy!
I love that Kristin comes on in her mellow voice and says that Victoria annoys the sh*t out of her. It’s so blasé, almost liked she’s stoned. It’s hard to imagine this is the same girl who gets into fights. I can’t wait to see what she does this season.
