  • This episode was really good.

    Shaken from her near elimination, CariDee struggles to rebound from an off week. In order to relieve some anxiety, the girls invite their Spanish models from their last commercial shoot over for dinner. The next day, Tyra visits the girls and has a sit down talk about the dark side of modeling, before the girls meet up with Pancho Saula, the director of Elite Barcelona, who has set up ten go-sees for them to attend all around the city. Eugena and CariDee team up, as do the twins, while Melrose decides to hit the streets alone, a strategy that seems to pay off as she manages to attend the most number of auditions. While the twins get lost and arrive late, hence disqualifying themselves, Melrose easily wins her fourth reward challenge, and she chooses CariDee to share in her reward – a catered dinner at their apartment. For this week's photo shoot, the girls arrive at the bull-fighting arena and meet their photographer, Nigel Barker. CariDee jokingly makes a crude remark to Nigel, who was edited to appear offended, however according to CariDee in an Entertainment Weekly online interview, he actually recognized her humor and joked along with her. Nevertheless, she later apologized for this. At panel, the girls are asked to tell the judges who they feel has the most and least amount of potential. Michelle's insecurities finally overwhelm her as she breaks down in front of the judges, conflicted by her doubts of whether she really wants to be a model. During deliberation, the judges are torn between the lackluster photos of Amanda and CariDee, but Michelle's confidence crisis makes them question whether Michelle may be even sacrificing her place for her sister. Consequentially, the twins land in the bottom two, where Amanda's drive ultimately won the judges over and Michelle is eliminated.moreless
  • This episode has it all: excitement, drama, laughs, honesty, tears...

    I thought CariDee's joke was funny, Nigel thought it was funny and actually joked back, although we didn't get to see that because the producers found it necessary to dramatize the whole thing...why??? CariDee was really distressed and Nigel doesn't suit those angry, dark looks, he's much cuter smiling ;-).

    Hurrah, one of the Talentless Twins was sent home! I'm sure they're lovely girls, but their posture and poses all scream "amateur" without much improvement over the last weeks. They can't walk the runway to save their lives and should both leave. I'm sure they've only made it this far because it was making for good viewing figures (or am I being to harsh now?)

    How good was that bull? A star actor (or maybe just natural instincts ;-)) and a great photoshoot, with the exception of Melrose, whose face looked lopsided, and the TT, who looked wooden.

    Looking forward to next week :D!moreless
  • Michelle goes home.

    Good episode but I wish Michelle didn't have to go home. CariDee got so lucky. I know it was a joke but sometimes you have to be careful what you say. CariDee said so did you get that stick pulled out of your ass to Nigel. I know she was a bit mad but I am glad she stayed. I was hoping either Melrose or Eugena would go but they just had to be the best! At the end Michelle and Amanda are in the bottom two because Michelle doesn't know what she wants and Amanda's pictures aren't as strong but in the end desire is more than talent.moreless
  • This was a great episode. I adored it. Tyra is so hot.

    Tyra was looking especially hot from the first frame. I hope one day another girl will be just like her. I don't think any of these wannabes are good enough... but I freakin love watching them try. Did I mention that Tyra was hot.

    She is like white chocolate melting in my mouth... but she is black. So I guess that makes her dark chocolate... mmmm... that stuff is delicious. Have you heard that it is also good for you? Someone should tell the wannabes.. .they need to eat something anyway. They will never be as hot as Tyra.. unless they eat more chocolate. She melts in my mouth not in my hand.moreless
  • read!!! its sorta a spoiler

    i didn't really watch this episode.. but i did see the ending.. last two standing were the twins and i didn't know which one it would be that would go home because i usually can guess it out.. but i kept switching back and forth.. i was still really sad that michelle went home.. caridee was the one who insulted nigel.. and in the judging room, she pulls out a letter to read in front of the judges.. and the judges see that she is truly sorry for what she said and she gets to stay.. eugena is doing really well in barcelona and so is melrose..moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • CariDee was so worried about the comment she made to Nigel that she composed a letter of apology which she read during panel.

    • We can see that CariDee has a birthmark on her right hip during the photo shoot.

    • Call out order:


      Michelle and Amanda are in the bottom two. Even though Michelle had the stronger portfolio, she's sent home because she admits during panel she doesn't know if she wants this career. (Tyra speculates that Michelle may have sabotoged herself to save her sister.)

    • This episode is named after Caridee, who jokes about Nigel pulling a stick out of his ass since the last panel.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • (looking at Eugena's picture)
      Tyra: I was looking at it like, "Who is this girl? Why all of a sudden does she have passion in her eyes in almost every single frame?"
      Miss Jay: Why are y'all giving her credit for my picture? That kind of looks like me up there.

    • Nigel: (after the bull charges and stops the shoot) I'm trying to make fashion history here!

    • Eugena: If this bull comes at me, I'm runnin'. I'm not thinkin' twice about it. Forget the photo shoot, cause I'm not tryin' to get bucked by no bull.

    • Amanda: Even though my life is literally in the bull's hands, I think I might have been a little more nervious working with Nigel cause Nigel has a lot more influence over my...my life than the bull.

    • Eugena: CariDee is just all over the place. She just doesn't know when to stop.

    • (about Eugena at the photo shoot with a live bull)
      Nigel: When she came on set the same thing...she was dead silent, and I thought, "Oh goodness, here we go." But actually, she used that fear and she harnessed it.
      Twiggy: Maybe the fear helped get a great picture. (laughs)
      Nigel: You can't bring a bull with you every time, love.

    • Eugena: Mr. Jay doesn't look like a matador at all, he looks like... Mr. Jay in a matador costume.

    • CariDee (about her go-sees): I hope I impressed the Spanish designers. I was just being myself. And being myself can get me far or it can put the foot in my mouth.

    • Melrose: When I go to different countries I wanna go have a nice dinner and a glass of wine...or...four.

    • Caridee (to Nigel): Did you pull that out of your ass from last panel?

  • NOTES (2)

    • In interviews with TV Guide and CW after ANTM, CariDee expressed regret over her comment to Nigel, but also reveals that Nigel wasn't offended by her comment and at the time actually joked back. It was only when the producers saw an opportunity to create some drama that the incident got blown out of proportion.

    • Caridee was voted Covergirl of the week.
