  • Trivia

    • Brittany was run over by a car when she was 17. Due to this accident she has trouble using her short term memory.

    • Ironically, when Tyra was mocking Renee's bad Australian accent she herself was doing a Cockney accent and also missed the mark!

    • Call out order:


      Jael was eliminated this week because the judges felt she didn't present herself as a model.

  • Quotes

    • Jael: I wanna be up there dressed in all black leather whuppin' some boy's ass! (imitates the crack of the whip) When's that photo shoot?

    • Jael: I just wanna like touch the grass and the animals, and like breathe the air, and climb the trees.

    • Brittany: When I was in High School I got run over by a car. Had eight staples in my head and it affected the short term memory part of my brain.

    • Jaslene: I was in complete shock. Australia like, I've never been nowhere else besides...the hood and around the corner.

    • Natasha: When I was growing up in Russia I believed that I can do something bigger than just marrying some guy from the St...from the next door.

    • (about Renee's over-the-top Australian accent)
      Tyra: Yeah, you channeled Steve Irwin for real. I mean, including the fact that he was a man.

  • Notes

    • The house that the girls stay in down in Australia, is filled with the pictures of Cycle 7 winner CariDee. This may have been the first time the girls discovered Caridee won Cycle 7 because when Cycle 8 began taping, Cycle 7 was not finished airing and pictures of her were not in the house in America.

    • This is the first time the Covergirl commercial was filmed with the final 6 contestants, rather than with the final 3.

    • Natasha was voted Covergirl of The Week.
