"The Girl Who Suddenly
Collapsed" - March 16
We start the episode with Keenyah and Brandy clearly
on the frying pan. They have to do something about their
attitude, or they are going bye-bye. Brandy says that
she knows that she is going to have to get better - as
she considers herself her own worst enemy. The attitude
of the women are find with all of the other girls, as
they are getting along well with each other...except for
Michelle, who apparently lets the little things get to
Maybe the Tyra Mail will help the women get a new
carnivorous attitude - it tells them to be ready for a
fight to the death in the Coliseum. The Coliseum, in
this case is the football stadium as the women are
approached by three cheerleaders. The fourth cheerleader
comes out to burst the America's Next Top Model
banner...and we see that it's a weird looking
cheerleader, as it is the form of J. Alexander, the
poise and posture expert. Brandy says that she knows
that she is going to have to get better.
Wearing pigtails and sporting pom-poms, Mrs. J. tells
them women to grab some platform clogs and meet him in
the field. The first exercise is for them to practice
walking on grass in the clogs - because if they can do
that, then everything else will be easy. He goes after
Michelle, Brandy, and Sarah, who I swearing 'Fashion
Victim' on her shirt. Mrs. J. tells her that she is a
fashion victim - ouch! As the activities conclude, Mrs.
J. tells them to find their fashion shoes - and an
accessory that they will be modeling while walking down
the Coliseum stairs. The accessories are athletically
related, as we see boxing gloves, water coolers,
helmets...and a baseball bat, carried by Brittany. Jay
tells Brittany to tone it down, which she considers as a
compliment, adding that it's better than she is awkward.
After the Coliseum, some of the women work together to
correct themselves. Keenyah works on Sarah while Rebecca
tags along. You would have NEVER seen this in any of the
previous episodes as they are posing together.
Awwwwbaaaawait a sec. Sarah brings us back into reality.
"This is not America's Next Best Friend."
Which model will be today's special? That's the next
Tyra mail as the women go to... K-Mart. Mrs. Jay has a
'dual runway challenge', which pits the models against
each other as they will walk with an accessory provided
by K-Mart. Sandi Bass, a model/talent scout, will be the
judge of the event. Whoever advances moves on, and the
last woman left will be the winner.

Sarah Vs...No One
'Day 2 with Mrs Jay...I've learned absolutely nothing.'
That is SO not a good sign.
WINNER - No One
We get to the finals with...Rebecca Vs. Naima. Jay
decides that the winner is....Rebecca. She wins and is
impressed with herself. She gets to meet a famous shoe
designer - and she selects 5 people to go with her. She
chooses Kahlen, Sarah, Lluvy, Noelle and...Naima, for
being a tough competitor. For the other women, they have
to service the women. Service is being defined
as...helping them put on their new selection of shoes.
Brittany is miffed, as a number of those women will be
getting shoes that she feels they don't deserve. Those
women are being shown how to work the shoe closet - and
to not accidentally lock anyone in. Michelle is
claustrophobic and she wants nothing to do with the shoe
shelves - and she freaks out when Keenyah tries to play
around. Michelle the wrestler storms off as Keenyah
shows us a little imp face. Michelle then switches her
face to be helpful Watch out for a surprise bulldog,
Michelle says that she worked hard to win the
competition, so she can have a little attitude. The
attitude rubs all of the women who have to serve the
wrong way, and you can see the rage seething from the
other women. Is this the seeds of starting drama?
The next mail tells the women to be ready to work with
10 other bitches. Naima decides to talk to one person
that all of the other women are starting to perceive as
a bitch - Michelle, who says that she doesn't want to
open up. As Brandy and Tiffany eavesdrop, Michelle says
that she is...bi. Well the secret is gone, but Brandy
tells Michelle that she also has fantasies and they chat
about it. Noelle says that Michelle makes more sense to
her now as they chat. Michelle feels more confident that
she can be herself again. AwwwwwBiiiiiiarf.
The women see Jay Manuel introduce them to the shoot.
The photographer is Danielle Levitt as they are doing a
shoot for 1-800-Flowers. Tyra shows up in a limo and
presents them with their bitches - dogs (of course). She
also shows them a male model, who everyone says looks
better than a bitch.
Tiffany starts it - and Jay is impressed that she is
shedding the ghetto image - though he was concerned when
Tiffany threatened to bite the dog. Jay wants to see
range from Christina, and Danielle didn't like her neck
extension. She really didn't like Brittany, who
continued to do porno poses.
Danielle loved Brandy, and called her shot dynamic,
while she thought that Keenyah was struggling. Naima
wasn't good emotionally, but she was impressed by
Tatiana. Michelle says that she feels better, and she
wants that to translate into a good shoot. According to
Danielle, it does - and she loved Lluvy's focus. She
didn't see that in Sarah and Jay didn't think she
connected to either the dogs or the male model.
Noelle wanted some hints from Sarah - and she didn't get
any. Danielle said that Noelle was trying - maybe a bit
too much. They thought that Kahlen was popping out her
butt too much, while they thought that Rebecca looked
The women are concerned when they come back and see that
one of the women are leaving tomorrow. Sarah is
concerned on how much judging will be on the walk, while
no one else knows who will be leaving.
We find out now as the women line up for their
appraisals. The special judge will be Sandi Bass - the
woman who judged them in the Reward Challenge. That
can't possibly make Sarah feel any better. Neither will
the challenge - this week's is to take a potato sack and
have them walk in it like it's the next best dress.
Sarah has to do the walk twice, after she screwed up the
first one, and you may as well pack up her bags now.
Here are the evaluations... Rebecca - ok walk, great
shot, but maybe a little slutty? Maybe also a
little...unconscious, as she faints while hearing the
evaluation. Can we go back to K-Mart for one
second...Clean-up...collapsed model on Lane 3. Noelle
explains that she has had these collapses before, and
it's been 6 years since her last one. She's ok, but
surely, this has to affect her down the road...
Tatiana - too heavy on the walk, but a beautiful
picture. Tiffany - she has to get better on the walk,
but the pic was nice. Sarah - a funky chicken walk and a
picture that isn't strong spells trouble. Lluvy - Tyra
loved that she did something with the sack, and the pic
is gorgeous. Michelle - they hated the walk, but the pic
is amazing. Brandy - Be careful with the walking anger
and they are looking for passion on the pic.
Christina - ok walk and a boring face. Naima - Her walk
was weird and a split decision on the pic. Brittany -
The walk was too heavy, and they love the pic from the
face down - but still a porno pic with her mouth hanging
out, like a $39.95 porno, according to Tyra. How would
Noelle - Uncomfortable walk, but a nice, leggy pic.
Kahlen - wake the arm up on the walk and she looks stiff
in the photo. Keenyah - Good walk - but bring the energy
up in the walk. They also hate what she is wearing, but
they give her an applause on the photo, saying that it
was the best one in the bunch.
Quick judge synopsis. Lluvy - the photograph saves her.
Michelle - no stage presence. Noelle - Adorable. Keenyah
- Great pic, mild in person. Sarah - Janice calls her a
pirate. Tiffany - beautiful face and the pic is fierce.
Naima - special. Tatiana - Nole' hates her. Nigel loves
her. Brittany - Janice doesn't think that Brittany likes
her and calls her a porn model. Kahlen - Nole wants her
to turn it up. Christina - Nigel hates her pic. Brandy -
she needs to turn the personality. Rebecca - Too Safe?
Summing this up -
Diva Power! - Naima, Rebecca, Tiffany
Diva in Training - Lluvy, Keenyah, Noelle
There's a Diva in somewhere...I think... - Kahlen,
Michelle, Christina, Tatiana
Trouble - Brittany, Brandy, Sarah
We then go to the hospital, where Rebecca says that
sometimes her synapse nerve gives out on her, but she
still wants to compete. Rebecca is grateful for the
opportunity as Tyra asks her to continue. She calls out
the name first of...Keenyah, then Tatiana, Rebecca,
Tiffany, Lluvy, Naima, Christina, Brandy, Noelle,
Michelle and Kahlen. That leaves Brittany and Sarah.
Brittany's sexuality is over the top, while Sarah's
walking wasn't over enough. The second chance goes
to...Brittany, who washes her face and pledges to look
Sarah is upset, because she feels like she has more
talent than porn princess Brittany. She says that it's
hard to feel like she's the ugly duckling as she leaves.
And with that, we leave the show for the week.
Next Week - We have grace under pressure - and some
women aren't so graceful. We'll see in 7 days if that
means the end of Brandy.
