The next day, Bryanboy shows up. Damn it! Why is he getting so much camera time? The fact that he is here to talk to the girls means he’s getting more of a mentor/judging position, instead of being “our voice at panel”, as Tyra originally promised.
I loathe this varmint.
For some reason, all the girls come racing into the room screaming in delight that Bryanboy has arrived. Kiara even scoops him up for a hug.
Crush him, She-ra!
So smuckface is here to sneer on about Nylon magazine and there’s a cute rep for the company who tells them about the magazine and the videos they make for the web. Bryanboy then tells the girls they are going on a road trip to Palm Springs and will have to perform random acts of modeling along the way. Each one will also do video segments and the best performance of the winning team will get to do a feature for Nylon TV.
I’m sorry, random acts of what???
That’s right. Tyra, in all her brilliance, has come up with random acts of modelling, where you are doing everyday things but suddenly pose in a modelesque fashion while doing it. As this concept is being explained, we get a few shots of Tyra performing said acts.
It would appear you need a telephone to perform this amazing feat.
The girls will be riding in two RV’s and have to make three pit stops where they will take photos of themselves doing random acts of modelling and a video segment. Once they get to Palm Springs, someone will be declared the winner of the challenge.
So the girls hit the road in two teams. Team 1 is Kiara, Nastasia and Victoria. Team 2 consists of Kristin, Laura, Brittnay and Allyssa. Once again, they are thrust into a challenge without any direction whatsoever. Although the concept of random acts of modeling was moderately explained to them, they have no opportunity to practice and get a feel for this very important skill to know when walking the runways of Paris.
Thus, it should come as no surprise that our girls start to get this completely arbitrary concept wrong.
Maybe you could explain the idea a little better, Tyra.
‘Cause clearly they aren’t getting it.
Allyssa gets it right. Or else she just got lucky.
Clearly it is not a team-wide successful concept.
Although who’s to say this isn’t just Brittnay fiercely warning people off?
I think the trick is to have a prop in your hand.
Yup, it’s definitely the hand prop that makes it acceptably random.
Although Victoria has a prop, failure to use it renders
her picture randomless. Remember this picture for later.
Ah, Nastasia. If only you had grabbed the life ring
and acted like it was a donut.
My girl gets it. Maybe she’s getting a lot of camera time
because for once she’s going to win the challenge!
I’m such a Pollyanna.
No one washes their hands as fiercely as Kristin!
Team 2 has definitely figured out the secret.
Turns out every baby in the universe could be America’s Next Top Model.
It’s the weeds in her left hand that make this
acceptably random modeling, you see.
I guess if Allyssa had sifted sand through her fingers
this would have been labeled “Fiercely being bored.”
Perhaps Kristin should have tried for
fiercely humping a windmill.
