"Feb. 10 Highlights"
Well, this will be challenging because this week's episode was really a snoozer. At least it had a theme, "personal secrets and issues" which produced lots of tearful "confessions," etc and was soooo boring.
Anyway, the show begins with a visit from Miss Tyra, who many posters are bafflingly calling "Tara." She jumped rope with a couple of the girls for like two seconds and was winded instantaneously. Then she spoke briefly with each of the models. This was so insipid I can barely recall what was said, except that Sara's disapproving Persian father became a topic, and Tyra talked about her mom being her rock.

Now, I'm not even sure I correctly recall the order of "events," but I believe a psychic was next up. She amazed the girls with her ability to read them "like a book." She was incredibly able to see that Mercedes was physically weak but mentally strong, and when Sara asked if she would ever win her daddy's approval, the psychic said he would never show his approval, but deep inside, he would approve.

After, or maybe before, this, some guy gave the girls a personality questionnaire, and they each checked off the dominant characteristics of their fellow model wanna-bes. He says the most ridiculous, dishonest thing I've heard on this show when he says that it's not all about how a model looks, it's about the person she is inside. Also, the talent competition matters and it's a scholarship pageant, dang it, not a beauty contest....wait a minute, wrong program. Back to our show: The focus of this segment was, of course, Camille. She was described as having many shark-like characteristics such as "aggressive" and "relentless."

Sprinkled throughout all the segments are bits related to Mercedes' Lupus and the girls' relationships with their mothers. Shandi feels especially bad because she is the "black, emaciated sheep" of her family and gets no love.

At some point, they have another interview segment, and this time the judge is Janice! Shes asks each girl who they would like to see leave next, and--get ready--they all say Camille. Gotta love Janice, she's actually offended when Camille defends herself by saying that she can relate to Janice because "some people might say you're (Janice) a b!!ch." Janice is shocked! shocked! and declares that she is a member of the PTA. (insert hilarious PTA joke here--Possibly Transgendered Association?) She also asks the girls what is the wildest place they've ever had sex. Catie wins by giving Janice bug-eyes when Catie says she's still a virgin. April says she doesn't want to pigeonhole herself as Asian. Shandi says the worst thing she's ever done is something drug-related, but this juicy tidbit is skimmed over so quickly I lack the details. This is why her momma won't forgive her and share some love, though.

The segment highlight is Mercedes revelation to Janice that she has lupus. Mercedes wins the prize, and is rewarded by Janice immediately blabbing to everyone that Mercedes has lupus. Janice, by her own admission, has no idea what lupus is, and when Mercedes explained, Janice still had no idea. Mercedes picks Sara to go on the shopping spree reward, which was, I believe, completely edited out, and then their moms come. Though Mercedes is, I think, a Boricua, and Sara is representing as a proud muslim, middle-Eastern woman, both of their mothers are white. Tyra's mom also joins in the party. Mercedes does have a touching moment with her mom when she rails against the chronic nature of lupus. April feels left out and flashes a photo showing her parents, and her white daddy looks like the nutty professor from Back to the Future. April begins to accept her Asian self.

So they go to take underwater photos in a big tank. Camille doesn't like it because fish poop in that water. Shandi and Xiomara have a contest to see who can make the funniest faces underwater. They both win with terrible grimaces. None of this week's photos are all that hot, IMO.

They finally come before the judges and give some sort of salesperson spiel. The judges say Sara is too ghetto. Tyra says there is an art to being ghetto and Sara hasn't mastered it. Camille's beeyutchy self shines through again. Yoanna can't even form the words she's supposed to say, but since she's so beautiful, this is skimmed over. They tell Xiomara she's America's Next Average Model.

The final two are Camille and Xiomara. No one can tolerate Camille, but Xiomara's photo is really, really horrible. Tyra tells Xiomara that she's all about personality, then Xiomara gets eliminated. No one really cares about poor Xio's great personality because her appearance is too frightening.


Next week: Geez, I forgot what was shown in the preview.

good recap.

I too am interested on as to WHAT Shandi did...and if it was just possession or if she used. (hmm...might fit in well in this industry - JUST KIDDING!)

I can't belive Janice blabbed the lupus thing...such class!

So so glad Xio is gone though! In my eyes, honestly, she wasn't all that striking.

Next week is "acting week". here's what UPN says:

*One model has an allergic reaction right before a close-up photo shoot.

*An acting exercise turns dramatic, literally, when traumatic aspects of some models' personal lives are uncovered.
(hmmmm...Shandi or Mercedes? Scenes were shown with a bunch of girls just BAWLING their mascara off)

*The competitors are challenged to show off their acting chops and must out-perform each other in a kissing scene.

Todd, great recap... had to giggle, throughout! My favorite moment in this ep. was Camille essencially calling Janice a b&&ch and Janice's shock. What was that about the PTA????? Is the PTA a b$$ch-free zone??????.

I kinda like Janice. She was such a fabulous model in her day, too!

Shandi said she was on drugs and committed a robbery, for which she received 2 yrs probation.

Question, what is a Boricua? Never heard of it?

Thanks!

My bad, "Boricua" is slang for a Puerto Rican.
