Contestant/Eliminated 6th (Tie)
Art Director/Makeup Artist
This episode is named for Tiffany who infuriates Tyra with her nonchalant attitude about being cut.
Both Rebecca and Tiffany were eliminated in this episode. Rebecca due to her disability to be anything else but the nice girl next door and Tiffany because of her lack of interest in taking criticism and her unwillingness to take the competition seriously.
Tyra: This is a joke to you. You've been through anger management. You've been through your grandmother getting her lights turned off to buy you a swimsuit for your competition. And you go over there and you joke and you laugh. This is serious to these girls and this should be serious to you.
Tiffany: Looks can be deceiving. I'm hurt. I am. But, I can't change it, Tyra, I …
Tyra: You can't change what?
Tiffany: I'm sick of crying about stuff that I cannot change. I'm sick of being disappointed. I'm sick of all of it. I'm not…
Tyra: You ain't sick of being disappointed, Tiffany. No, you're not. If you were sick of being disappointed, you would stand up and you would take control of your destiny. Do you know that you had a possibility to win? Do you know that all of America is rooting for you? Do you know that? And then you come in here and you treat this like a joke? You come in here and look at that and say "I can't read that"? You read ten times better than half of those girls over there!
Rebecca: I'm not excited like some other girl here. I'm engaged, I'm about to be married when I get home so it's a little awkward.
Brittany: I'm definitely gonna have the sex appeal 'cause that's what they're looking for.
Tyra: Tiffany, the other girls did not know these words, they goofed the words, go through it, just have fun with it, use your personality, be you.
Tiffany: I don't know.
Tyra: Do you wanna go home? If you don't do this, you're gonna go home.
Tiffany: This is humiliating, more and more each week.
Janice: None of you girls can read, sorry.
Tyra: Rebecca, you stand before me absolutely beautiful, probably the best model, high fashion model of the bunch and I know you want this and I know you tried but we feel like your progress is just like this, just safe.
Tyra: Tiffany, you stand before me because everybody wants this more than you. Your grandmother wants this so badly for you. Sometimes when our lives are so hard amd difficult and something is so fantastic comes about, sometimes we feel like we're not worth it and if you don't feel you're worth it then none of these people behind me and I won't feel like you're worth it. We think maybe you might need a little more time to look in that mirror, find some self esteem and start loving yourself.
Rebecca: The judges feel they had seem improvements in everyone else's photo. I guess in mine they haven't so I need to nail this, I need to nail this. I have to, I don't want to go home.
(talking about Boris)
Kahlen: Oh my God, he's so hot. I'm gonna have a heart attack.
Tiffany: I'm not used to eating raw stuff.
Kahlen: (reads aloud a non-speaking line) Looks to the left. Whoops.
Rebecca: I need to improve.
Kahlen: Yours is just your face, though. That's something you can easily fix.
Rebecca: To be the last two there, all I remember thinking is just I'm terrified. The judges feel my face is always too sweet and innocent.
Tyra: Janice is one of the world's first supermodels.
Janice: The first supermodel.
Nolé: Rebecca's like a bowl of pasta, kinda plain. She needs pesto or she needs some...
Janice: She needs some chili peppers.
Tiffany: Put it like this, I don't talk like nobody here.
Tiffany's Grandmother: That's fine. You ain't got to talk like nobody there. Just be the best you can be.
Janice: Au revoir, bitches!
Boris Kodjoe: ... Keenyah: playing, flirting, eye contact, all good. Tiffany, um. Love the hat.
Larry Moss: I'm going to teach you a dialect: cockney.
Tiffany: Cockney? I can barely speak english!

Czech Republic: September 25, 2011 on Prima LOVE
Tyra's blowup with Tiffany ranked at #34 on VH1's 40 Greatest Reality Moments 2.
According to excutive producer Ken Mok, Tyra had recently began production of her talk show during the taping of this episode and hadn't gotten any sleep in days. Therefore, her fuse was shorter than normal and resulted in the blow-up between her and Tiffany.
During E's True Hollywood Story about ANTM, Tiffany said that in previous interviews she had stated that Tyra yelled at her because she really cares about her, but admitted that was a lie. In reality, she felt that if Tyra had really cared about her she would not have handled the situation the way she did.
Covergirl of the week was Naima.
Nole: Looks like Valley Of The Dolls got electrocuted
Nole comments that Kahlen's picture has the vibe of the 1967 movie about three young women who are trying to make it in Hollywood. He added the part about electrocution because her hair is standing on end.
Nolé: In this shot she looks like Dracula.
Nole compares Naima's picture to that of the infamous vampire because of her flying hair and forced smile, which make her eye teeth look like fangs.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Brittney draws inspiration for her Cockney accent from the 1968 movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, a movie set in England about a flying car.
