Season 7 Episode 12

The Girl Who Grates

Aired Friday 9:00 PM Nov 29, 2006 on The CW



  • Trivia

    • The title refers to CariDee, who "grates", or persistently annoys Melrose.

    • During the photo shoot, CariDee's body went into hypothermia due to the cold pool of water they were in, leaving Amanda to continue the shoot alone.

    • Call out order:


      Amanda and CariDee are in the bottom two: Amanda for being too awkward in her pictures, and CariDee for not physcially being to take the cold during the photo shoot. Amanda is sent home.

    • In the week's photo shoot, the girls have to pose together while floating in a pool. Eugena and Melrose pose together in one shoot, Amanda and Caridee pose together in another.

  • Quotes

    • (CariDee is starting to react from the cold water)
      Tyra: CariDee, you're from Fargo! Come on!
      CariDee: (shuddering) I forgot.

    • Jay Manuel (during Melrose & Eugena's photo shoot): Don't these two girls hate each other?

    • Eugena (getting into an ice-cold pool for a photo shoot): This is cold!
      Tyra: Try shooting Sports Illustrated in the snow, laying in the snow! I didn't do it but other models did.

    • Miss Jay (toasting the girls at dinner): Here's to America's Next Top Modellette. May the best bitch win.

    • Jay Manuel: Today was a typical Eugena shoot -- flat, boring, and it looked like she was drowning in the water.

    • CariDee: I don't respect Melrose, therefore there is no friendship. If Melrose becomes America's Next Top Model I'm gonna puke...all over. I'll just puke.

    • Caridee: Melrose has three different personalities and she's really good at it, she's really convincing... it's creepy... maybe she should be medicated
