Luscious: Damn, girl! You got shit on Taryn Manning AND Tyler Perry? Did you copyright first names starting with the letter T and containing the letter Y and this is how the poor schmucks have to repay you?
Tyra: “Tyler Perry knows about transformation. And you guys are going to be transforming in a big way today.”
Tyler: “What I know about modeling and acting is that they’re both very very similar, in the way that you have to convey to the audience that you are that person.”
Tyra tells the girls to grab flags which have character assignments on them.
Tyra: “The more over the top you can be, the better.”
Luscious: Um. no. That would be called over-acting. Seriously, Tyra, the only thing you are going to teach these girls is how to be bad actors???
The girls are all sent to a make-shift dressing room to get styled in their assigned characters. They are stoked, since the prize (besides the phantom $10K they will never see) is a walk-on role in a Tyler Perry movie. Laura envisions this launching the winners career with limitless possibilities. I find it surprising that the girl whose dad was in Dynasty and then faded into obscurity thinks something as measly as a walk-on role will help in any way at all.
Tyra and Tyler are having a great time with Yvonne, who has embraced her Rapper Superstar character. Yvonne says her name is Chocolate Stain, which has a connotation she perhaps does not understand. The judges think it is hilarious.
Poor Destiny is first. She has to act like a star-struck tourist. Tyra and Tyler are hiding in a van and giving her instructions on how to behave through an ear piece . They tell her to approach a random guy, as if she thinks he’s Usher. She does as requested, making a complete fool of herself, which somehow shall magically transform her into being a better model.
Tyler Perry says that Destiny was fearless, so he gives her a 6. Poor girl.
Victoria, as usual, is odd. Her assignment is a celebrity wannabe diva. For some reason, she decides her character will also fancy herself a philanthropist. She commits entirely to the roll, using a pretty decent English accent and doing a good job of being funny and making a fool of herself.
The problem arises when she pursues a homeless man and insists he take her left-over fried chicken. The man throws the food back at her, spilling fries and chicken on her dress. I can’t believe the environment hasn’t been secured or the girls haven’t been warned to only harass people who seem to obey societal conventions.
