  • Lazer/Death

    Renee drawing the picture for Joel was a little funny. If she would have drawn that for me I would have been like wtf is that??? Renee is still super phony to me and i dont buy it. That whY she didn't win the first challange with her simple self. It sucked that she did so well on her final photo shoot. She had the best photo, her attitude just sucks. Actually ALL the girls did well on there photo shoot. The two girls in the final were both beautiful girls but I was happy with their final decision. I think Dion can fix her look with time.moreless

  • Renee tries to change her attitude towards the other girls but it doesn't last for long. Vogue'ing stages a come back and all the models get killed.

    The girls go to the challenge and they battle by vogueing. The instructor praises Whitney the most. Then they’re taken to the real challenge where they’re put into a situation like the movie “Entrapment”. They have to get through a maze of beams with out setting off an alarm in two minutes while vogueing. If they get to the end then they get a key to a box where they could win an expensive charm bracelet. Renee is the only one whom does not get a key. The instructor guy gets to pick the winner and whom he picks – their key will open the box. He picks Whitney.

    The girls go back to the house and Renee forgets about being nice and hogs the phone. She begs her husband to come pick her up because no one likes her… blah, blah, blah…

    At the final photo shoot the models have to take pictures as if they’ve been murdered. Renee does great. Mr Jay goes back to the other girls bragging about it. Jaslene, hers I didn’t like that much, I don’t understand all the hype around her. Brittany did great – again. Diana did really well, I hope she continues to improve. Sarah, I just don’t like her and don’t think she’s a model at all. Jael was really weak this week. Felicia didn’t do well at all – she was one of the only ones that Mr Jay was having trouble getting the shots from that he wanted. Whitney did okay but that was about it. Natasha – she needs to go home. Dionne is another one that I think needs to go home.

    The girls go to judging and Renee gets called first for best picture. In the end it’s down to Dionne and Felicia and they send Felicia home. I’m ready for Tyra to do a Trump move and send a couple of people home at one time. Oh well, until next week…moreless

    Good episode. I think Felcia should of stayed and Dionne should of went home. Dionne's pictures are boring to me and I don't really see a model in her and she needs to be told the poses. Felcia was cool and fun even though the judges said her last picture was weak I thought it was good and think she could improve. Natasha is getting better and I really like her! I don't know why everyone hates Renee. I think is is great and not a b***h. Her pictures keep getting better and better! Jaslene is still a little b***hy and acting like she is the best but she seems a little better.moreless
  • For the first time in a long time, and episode where everyone seemed like they belonged there.

    I get a little mad sometimes watching the show and seeing a bunch of stupid girls that can't model at all but are now going to somehow become the next supermodel. This episode was different though. Everyone did well at their photo shoot so the cut at the end must have been really hard.

    Wow, Brittney is so freakin' photogenic! It's pretty surprising because she doesn't look like a model in person. She'll get cut around week 9 or 10 for personality I bet.

    Renee is such a mean girl! And kind of stupid, too! She is rude to everyone and then complains about them hating her. They don't hate her because she's good, they hate her beacuse she's so mean.

    I thought Dionne should have been cut instead of Felicia. Hopefull she'll go next week. Felicia was getting a little full of herself though, but not in a mean way!moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Felicia (after being eliminated): I'm glad that they did cry cause I'm like, 'If these bitches don't cry if I get eliminated, I'm gonna be pissed!' (laughs) But they did, so it's cool.

    • Renee: I feel like a lot of the girls in the house don't understand me, like they're just looking for ways to be offended by me. I don't know why; I feel like they just don't like me.

    • (after Brittany does a shoot on a wet, grimy bathroom floor)
      Jay Manuel: Someone get this girl a towel and a tetanus shot.

    • Jay Manuel: I already told them you were really good.
      Renee: Oh! They already hate me enough as it is!
      Jay Manuel: Oh, they do? Why? What happened?
      Renee: I'm a bitch.

  • NOTES (2)

    • Tyra Banks and the show came under fire by the president of New York City's National Organization for Women chapter for this week's photo shoot. Sonia Ossorio told the New York Daily News, "Violence against women is such a reality in our society that I certainly don't need the entertainment industry making light of it and making entertainment out of it. It's supremely ironic, when it's a show geared toward women about women, and about glamour."

    • Jael was voted Covergirl of the Week.
