It doesn’t add up that Tyra would subject the girls to an animal she is petrified of. Unless she has a cruel streak. Seriously, if she’s so concerned for the welfare of “her girls”, putting them in what she would consider harm’s way makes no sense. Oh, right. Nothing Tyra does makes sense. Sorry, forgot there for a moment.
Their challenge today is to model the swimsuits and look high fashion while working with the dolphins. Winner gets the fake scholarship money, a spa day with a friend, and $3,000 worth of merchandise from the House of Marley.
Okay, Pat. I’ll take the marijuana flag for $800.
The guitar for $500. Hmmm… let’s see.
Oh! That little grass/booze flier for $300 is nice…
Clearly the pictures that will be taken for this challenge will be used by no one, including Cedella, since the girls are in charge of their own make-up and they definitely are not glopping it on heavy, as you would need to do for a proper photo shoot. Laura comes on to tell us her biggest insecurity is that she is a healthy girl and she thinks it is amazing that she’s still in the competition against size 00 girls.
Frankly, I don’t see much difference between her and Kiara.
They both have a little more thigh muscle than the rest
of the girls, but that’s about it.
There are two parts to this challenge. First an up-close picture with the dolphin in the shallows. This will be followed by having the dolphins push them in the deep end of the pool.
Hello, 1980′s White Snake video.
Wait a minute!
So the second half of this challenge has the dolphins thrusting our girls out of the water while they remain unseen? WTF Tyra? First of all, no one gives the girls any instruction on how to hold their body so that they will successfully rise up out of the water. This is as far as Kiara gets in any of her attempts. Secondly, why are we working with half-wild animals if we aren’t going to see them? Thirdly this seems to be fraught with all kinds of things that could go wrong: sharp rocks, unpredictable animals, pulled muscles from being launched at God only knows how many mph and having a limb be bent at an awkward angle…. Maybe this damn show should be called America’s Next Top Surviving Model. Sheesh!
Johnny lamely tells Ms. Marley that the shot looked pretty, even though the water was blocking the suit. Nice try in attempting to legitimize this asinine challenge.
But the client’s not buying it.
Johnny’s advice is for Nastasia is to “mix it up.”
She tilts her head the other way.
This just looks like someone’s really bad acid trip.
