Episode Summary

The models are given makeovers, but one contestant is not pleased with her new look. Also, Queen Latifah guest stars and judges a makeup challenge. Finally, the models participate in a photo shoot, and one is eliminated.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Makeover complaints and Megan goes home

    Wow, I've never seen makeover complaints as drastic as this. Jaeda starts complaining then Melrose, then AJ and finally Monique. All these complaints hurt me and Brooke seemed to be the only person that appreciated Frederick's work on her hair. Even the two Jays were so disappointed and then yeah I agree with them, the girls couldn't seem to keep their mouths shut. At the challenge, I think Eugena did a great job and everything is just thrown at you. I'm glad Jaeda and Caridee got to share the reward. For the wig shot, Melrose excelled compared to her bad photo last week. And Megan is gone.moreless
  • Makeover day is now upon us! Some girls love, Some girls hate, Some viewers see no difference!

    After we recap last week's premiere, we begin with Melrose eating her humble pie, which apparently Miss Eugena needs BIG TIME. The girls get in the van to what they hope to be makeover day, but find a nice breakfast with Mr. Jay, who gives them a talk about showing emotion. They go home to find their new living room, the Frederick Fekkai salon, with 12 canvases that hold the makeover pictures! While some girls embrace their makovers, like Megg's new frizzy curl, Brooke's sexy brown hair, and the twins' different shades of red, some girls hate them, like Melrose, who doesn't like the idea of being a blonde, or AJ, who actually demands that Frederick, a master of the business, redo her hair. And in my opinion, the most dramatic makeover goes to Anchal, whose long hair was shortened, but also, her hairline was actually moved back and inch or so. The girls drive The Jays so crazy, that Mr. Jay actually storms off of the set. The next day, the girls are given a makeup challenge in what seems to be a mall. They must stop at each floor, pick up the components of their new queen look, and present them to a Covergirl exectutive. On the first floor, Megg is eliminated. But the real trouble comes when Monique is eliminated on Floor 3. The 10 other girls make it up to their Covergirl Executive, Queen Latifah! She decides that the best queen look was...Eugena's, which included a nice color splash. Eugena, and two friends, CariDee and Jaeda, got to do a special photoshoot for the Covergirl website. At the house, Monique takes her rage out on the phone, for a total time of 3 hours and 31 minutes! At the photo shoot, the girls meet three "weavologists" who will hook them up with some outrageous hair and makeup, that they must shine through. Some girls, like Anchal, rock it, while some, like Jaeda, fail horribly. At judging panel, Melrose, who was bottom 2 last week, was called first, followed by Anchal and i think AJ. Jaeda and Megan are left standing. Jaeda did not show anything, while Megan disappeared behind her moving hair and makeup. And the final name is..........Jaeda! Sorry Megan...

    11 Girls Remain, Who Will Be America's Next Top Model?

    Stay tuned for the Covergirl of the week, who is... Anchal!moreless
  • The models get new make overs.

    Good episode! I think Jaeda's hair looked better long. She looked so different with short hair! I don't know why they thought it looked better. I would not cut my hait short. The shortest I would cut it would be do my shoulders. The shortest I had my hair was when I was 8 to my ears! It was so ugly! Well now I think it was! Melrose does look better with blonde hair even I don't like her. Amanda and Michelle look so pretty with orange/red hair! I loved their makeovers the best. I forgot what they did to CariDee's but hers was pretty could before the makeovers.moreless
  • Good makeovers

    I especially loved the twins makeover. The red hair is so hot. They looked really bland before. I had liked Jaeda hair before and it's funny she was the one to say "You can just cut my off" and then was crying when she saw they really were gonna cut it off!!! I didn't think it would look good, but it did. I do think though that she deserved to go home, not Megan (was that her name). Megan looked so much like Charlize Theron it was scary. A lot of the girls this season look like celebrities. Megg reminds me of Kate Hudson.moreless
  • Tyra gives the ladies a makeover and the models have shine in the midst of hair everywhere. The ladies discover how sour a loser Monique really is.

    During this episode some of the models really worked my nerves. This is cycle 7 of America's next top Model. Each of these ladies are very familiar with this show and all of them knew they would be getting a serious makeover whether it was drastic or subdued there is an understanding that it would be different. I found myself getting mad every time I saw one of the ladies whining or crying or moaping over their precious hair. Please give me a break you knew what you were getting yourself into. I thought you wanted to step up to the challenge. Happy to know Jay put them in there place! Dutchess Monique decided that since she lost the challenge very poorly that she would hog up the phone for hours and hours. I tell you, nothing makes a show better than a few cat fights!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • This is the first time the models see an artist's rendering of what they will look like with their new hairstyle.

    • After being disqualified from the challenge, Monique took it out on the other girls by spending 3 hours and 31 minutes in the phone room. Part of this time she wasn't even talking to anyone, she just wanted to tie up the phone because she missed the chance to meet Queen Latifah.

    • Frederic Fekkai did the girl's hair makeovers.

    • This episode is named after Jaeda, who hated her new makeover and wouldn't stop talking about it.

    • Call out order:


      Megan and Jaeda were in the bottom two. Megan was sent home because her face wasn't strong enough in her picture.

    • Megan and Jaeda were the last two models remaining waiting for their picture. Coincidentally, both were given boy cuts.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Nigel (to CariDee): You look a little mannish in this picture. You have to be careful, you've got that strong jawbone which can make you look a little drag.
      Miss Jay (in a deep, masculine voice): Drag on, girl, drag on.

    • Tyra: Wow. Look at you. I don't feel like you're owning it, I feel like you're scared of that hair.
      Jaeda: I'm still a little awkward, but it's getting better.
      Tyra: I don't wanna see that, I don't wanna feel that. Cause I'm like, "I gave her something so dramatic she can't handle it. Maybe she should just go home and just count the days until her hair grows back."
