  • Trivia

    • For this week's challenge, the girls split up into teams of three and had to create a PSA for Keep A Child Alive. Heather, Jenah and Ambreal's team won. Jenah and Ambreal received gift baskets from Carol's Daughter valued at $500 each, but since Heather's name was pulled in a drawing she got to do a photo shoot for Carol's Daughter, art directed by Mary J. Blige.

    • The photo shoot theme this week is 'recycling':

      Heather - aluminum cans
      Chantal - shredded paper
      Sarah - garbage bags
      Saleisha - car parts
      Ebony - bubble wrap
      Bianca - oil
      Lisa - plastic bottles
      Ambreal - newspaper

    • This week Ebony and Ambreal were in the bottom two. Ebony was selected to stay but shocked everyone when she said she wanted to leave. Although disgusted with her being a quitter, Tyra allowed Ebony to go and Ambreal got to stay in her place.

    • The episode is named for Ambreal, who treasures a mango because model Tyson Beckford took a bite out of it.

    • Miss Jay's elimination "tribute" (his growing afro) is poked fun at by judge Nigel Barker, who also sports an afro during panel.

  • Quotes

    • Miss Jay: (about Ebony) I want to wrap her ass up in that bubble wrap, put her in one of Jenah's cartons and ship her out.

    • Tyra: All right, ladies and gentlemen... (she looks at Miss Jay) Oh--wait, which one are you?
      (the judges all laugh)

    • Ebony: (crying) Modeling, I don't think, is for me.
      Tyra: You know what I think is not for you? I don't think it's modeling. I think it's people telling you what to do. I think it's people telling you that you're not perfect. I think that's what you can't handle. And the most unattractive thing in the world to me is a quitter. And for can go.
