First off, I’d like to say thanks to Hypnotoad for filling in last week and doing an awesome job! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate a fellow Gasm team member who can somehow translate the ridonkulous that is the last vestiges of this show’s respectability and report it without committing suicide.
This week picks up right where we left off. Tyra stands in front of 12 powerless women, holding their fate in her hands, eyes dancing with joy at the idea that she is about to crush 6 of them with the flick of her wig.
Instead of just showing us who wins and allowing everyone else to commiserate in their loss together, the pictures fade out one by one as we see who got the lowest score (Destiny) followed by the second worst score (Darian).
As each girl’s dreams are dashed by their picture fading out, Tyra simply states, “Sorry Destiny” or “Sorry Darian.”
By the time Yvonne’s image fades out, Tyra’s too exhausted with her adrenaline rush of dream crushing to muster more energy than a snide little “sorry.” She can’t even be bothered to barely whisper Yvonne’s name. Yvonne isn’t surprised that she won’t be invited back to the show. She sees through Tyra’s ruse.
Four names left and I’m happy to see that sweet Jessie, who never stood a chance, didn’t have her picture fade out first. Maybe she has a shot at a modeling career after all. With three names left still tallying scores, we are all shocked, including Brittanay (or however you spell it. Really people – who the hell cares if I misspell her name. Do you have any idea how much time it takes to wing one of these things out? Chick was never gonna be a real model so get over your OCD selves. *stepping off soapbox now*) to find that she is the next one to fade to black.
I won’t waste more of our time discussing how it is down to Allissa and Leila. We all know Leila is being brought back. After all, the producer’s can’t afford for anyone who actually has banked some scholarship money to win this thing.
No one squeals with delight as Leila is named the comeback girl.
Tyra embraces Leila and welcomes her back to the competition. When Leila profusely thanks her, Tyra tells her she should be thanking America instead.
The girls seem so stunned by the return of their biggest competition that they forget to cheer the fact that they are on their way to Jamaica. Tyra has to remind them what’s next to even get a half-hearted cheer from them to end the segment.
As the girls are packing, they interview about the upcoming trip and how excited they are. For some reason, Laura is so excited about being able to go to the beach and be in the sun when they get to Jamaica. I wonder if she knows where California is actually located.
