Christina is being a PITA in the house again and trash talking Brendi K. Brendi K. is struggling with the critiques and with self-criticism. Jeana is having some struggles too, and her face appears to be melting off. Erin is sobbing about her baby’s father dying of cancer. She left him when he was sick with cancer. It’s super heavy already. UGH.
Tyra sends in nail techs to give all the girls manicures and she shows up to get on with them. Christina takes the opportunity to give a sob story to the girls in front of Tyra. I don’t want to recap all of these childhood traumas. I may have to skip this episode.
A couple of girls Erin and the pretty Hispanic girl don’t want to do a nude shoot. As it turns out, the shoot is not nude, it is a shoot with no makeup. The girls will be putting their newly manicured hands on each model during the shoot to show support.
First up is Christina. If this is Christina without makeup, she should never wear it. Everyone looks great with no makeup actually. Tyra is the photog. I cannot stop staring at Kyra. I’m not sure if she is exquisitely beautiful or odd looking or both. But she mesmerizes me this week. But the actual photo shoot is full of girls reliving painful experiences. Tyra looks odd without makeup.
Next the girls have to film an anti-bullying campaign. Christina says she gets bullied in the model house. This pisses off her teammates that chose her Brendi K. and Shanice.
Damn this episode is depressing AF. They all have to scream and cry and they are horrifically good at expressing their pain. Khrystyana in particular is haunting. All of the videos were great. But Khrystyana, Kyra and Sandra won. I preferred the one with Brendi and Christina and Shanice. But judges didn’t feel like the ending resolved the bullying issue. I disagree. It totally did.
I feel like Khrystyana is going to win this whole thing. I really wish more of you were watching this show. It is one of my favorites and we could have so many more conversations. I feel like I don’t give a good recap because the show is so fast paced I can’t discuss every nuance because I have to start RHOBH on time. If it were a Friday show, I think more of you would watch and I’d have way more time to talk about all the little things.
OMG at judging, Tyra Banks dress is Alyssa Milano bad. The judges loved Kyra, and Shanice. Shanice is adorable while accepting her positive feedback. Brendi also did well. I think everyone did well this week. Brendi cries over her positive critique. They love Rio. Erin’s hair was a distraction, they didn’t care for it. They loved Jeana.
Khrystyana loses it in judging. I can’t go there. All the judges cry. They love her photo. Will she win again? They hated Christina. Tyra says a no make-up thing is not really her thing. For the millionth time, Christina argues with the judges and says it actually is because she rarely wears make-up. She has been doing this from the very first interview with the judges and I have no idea why they keep putting her though other than to humiliate here with the green hair dye. She has to go this week, RIGHT? I say that all the time, but really? I think her video only lost because they want to send her home this week, and that was unfair to Brendi K. and Shanice because the video was actually great. I also feel like they picked her worst photo. They give a montage of all the times she rejects feedback.
Rio’s eyebrow fascinates me. Hell, Rio fascinates me. She has a great shot at winning.
Backstage, Brendi K. says to Christina she is a great model, but she has no respect for people. Christina says she disagrees. Brendi points out that she just disrespected Tyra. She tells Christina that in her place she would give Tyra an apology.
In the stupidest twist ever, seven girls tied for best photo. What a cop out. The bottom two are Erin and Christina. Erin stays. And Christina goes home for not being “moldable.” Basically, Christina goes home for thinking that she knows best and because she can’t listen to critique. She says her confidence was seen as arrogance. Nope. She was just a bitch
Next week: Kyra struggles again.
