Even though the girls were beautified in their own place, they now have to ride to the photo shoot all dolled up.
I’m delighted to discover pom pom heads are back this season.
The girls wind up at the Macau Tower and much to their dismay they find out this will be the location of their photo shoot. Not only will they be incredibly high up, the weather is shit, it’s windy and they will be posing outside on a ledge in safety harnesses.
Nigel shows the girls how it’s done.
Sophie and Alisha both have height phobias and are presently freaking out.
Laura’s damp panties have nothing to do with the rain.
Nigel asks Sophie to go first and she’s too freaked out. She says she needs to see someone doing it but when Laura volunteers, she’s got enough sense to realize being a pansy about the height is no way to win the competition. So she changes he mind after Laura has been all prepped up and steps out into the rain.
It does look like it would be harrowing.
Sophie is absolutely terrified.
But Jay says they got some good shots, even though Sophie can’t bear to let go of the safety harness, so they call her in.
The poor dear completely breaks down.
Annaliese has a much easier time of things during her shoot. She tells us she’s not afraid of heights – she’s just afraid of what would happen if she fell. I like her sensibility. Jay and Nigel appreciate how she used the safety harness in her work. Laura has no trouble with the shoot at all. She loves all things dangerous, gross or buggy.
I don’t know what the hell zagalicious means
but this girl should be called Never Fear.
As soon as I see Eboni’s get up, I know she’s in trouble. Anytime the stylists put a huge awkward lump of a headpiece on a girl, that girl gets sent home. It’s kind of like getting the fox trot on SYTYCD – it’s the signature kiss of death.
Case in point.
So I’m a little alarmed for Eboni when I see this:
No one else has such a high or awkward hair pouf. I feel sad that it seems like Ebs is being set up to fail, but then she tells us in voice over that the models left are all such strong models and I tune her out. She’s got an amazing canvas from which to work, but girlfriend has not yet come close to being an artist. If she thinks she is supermodel material already, might be time for pigtails to head home and get some perspective. It would not serve her well to develop an ego the size of the buildings in Macau at this stage in her career.
There she goes talking about her rotten childhood again.
Alisha is also terrified. But she understands this could be her last chance,
so she forces herself to overcome the fear.
Jay calls it a wrap and the girls return to their hotel. Sophie is traumatized and sure that she will be in the bottom two. Eboni is worried because she thinks even if she has a good picture the judges may look back on her other weaker photos for consideration. Alisha is frustrated and says she can’t handle being bottom two again and if she is she wants them to just send her home. She comes on in confessional to tell us that after such a hard day, she’s beginning to re-think whether she wants to be a model at all. Laura is irritated that the girls all act like this is such a hardship. She didn’t actually pull out the “I overcame drunk parents” card, but since I think she implied it and she kind of bugged me this week, I’m gonna give her a crappy picture anyway.
