This week on America’s Next Top Model All-Stars, the models arrive home to see the winning photo of Dominique displayed on the flat screen tv. Angelea interviews that she isn’t sure why Dominique won last week, when she believes her photo to be better. She’s starting to doubt herself. Getting ready for bed, she asks Laura if she felt she would make it so far in this Cycle, and Laura interviews that she’s worried about Angelea’s confidence. She says that the moment you start to doubt yourself is when it all goes downhill.
Time for Tyra mail!
“Tomorrow you’ll meet with the judges… Fierce and Love, Tyra”
Everyone in confused. They just met with the judges, and now they’re going to meet with them again?
The next day, the girls walk down to the bar in their hotel, where they meet with Miss J. He tells them that so far in this competition, they’ve been judged by experts, and now it’s time to be judged by your peers. They will be judging each other.
They walk for each other, and Laura gets praise from Dominique. Lisa, however gets a put-down from Angelea, who thinks her walk is sloppy. Lisa thinks Allison’s walk isn’t confident at all. Lisa thinks Angelea is crabby, and has a bad attitude. Lisa thinks that Dominique’s walk is sexy and confident. Angelea remarks that she thinks Dominique tried to give two much attitude, which caused her to stumble.
Next, they critique each other’s photos. Then, Miss J asks Laura who she thinks doesn’t deserve to win. She thinks for a few seconds, then says that she won’t say, even if it means she won’t win this challenge. Allison doesn’t have that same opinion, and she says she would pick Laura. Lisa turns the question around, saying that depending on what the judges are looking for, it’s like throwing a dart, and seeing which one sticks. Dominique thinks that Angelea is lacking in confidence. She thinks that Angelea has to not only say it, but she has to do it. Angelea takes this as an attack, and she gets all upset and walks out of the building. Miss J follows her and he talks to her a bit and gets her to come back inside. He then gives everyone a card, and tells them to vote for the girl with the best runway walk, the best portfolio and the best star quality. Miss J says that the girl with the least potential is Allison. The girl with the strongest is Laura.
Miss J says that the models will now be treated to a good time with former model and Crete socialite Twylem Pyper. They go down to meet her on her yacht. The girls dock at a cove and go swimming, jumping off the boat’s diving board. Later that night, Twylem takes the girls to a nightclub where there’s a lot of drinking going on. Lisa, who is a recovering alcoholic does not participate in any drinking, but still has a great time.
The next day, back at the house, it’s time for Tyra mail!
This Tyra mail doesn’t have any text, however. It only has a photo of an angel giving a crown to a man. At least that’s what it looks like to me.
The bus takes the girls to a beautiful scenic overlook where they meet with Mr. Jay. He tells them that their photo shoot today will be based on the Olympic games, which originated in Greece, nearly 3000 years ago. They’ll be wearing accessories that have to do with various Olympic sports. The photographer is Nigel Barker.
Dominique is first to shoot, and her sport is javelin. She’s never held one before, and starts out holding it backwards. She is excited to shoot with Nigel, but the judges keep comparing her to Beyonce and J-Lo, and she’s Dominique. Nigel thinks she does alright, but he doesn’t see her personality shining through. Where is Dominique? Who is Dominique? Oh oh, that doesn’t sound good.
Next, is Allison, whose sport is discus. Her discus is actually a handbag. Nigel instructs Allison on the proper use of the discus. When she gets ready for her photographs though, she looks more like she’s hailing a cab. Mr. Jay tells her that she’s moving too quickly, and she needs to move more slowly. With that direction, she starts giving more of what Nigel and Mr. Jay are looking for.
Lisa has the hurdles. She says that she actually jumped hurdles in high school, but she’s thinking that she has received bad critiques for always jumping in her photos, so she thinks maybe she should tone down the actual jumping here. She starts out badly, and Nigel tells her, he’d like to see her actually jump. She explains her reasoning for not doing the actual jumping, but he tells her that she’s wrong, and she really should try to jump. Nigel is impressed and calls her shots beautiful.
Laura has archery. Nigel sets up the bow and arrow, while Laura explains that her sister is very good with the bow and arrow. He says he’s not surprised, and Laura remarks, “We gotta eat!” Mr. Jay loves her poses, saying she’s like Athena.
Angelea has the shot put. Her shot put is actually a shell. Angelea has no idea what a shot put is, and she has some problems posing with it. Nigel has to actually position her to get a good shot.
That night, back at the model home, the girls get the elimination Tyra mail.
“Tomorrow you will meet with the judges. Only 4 will continue on in the hope of becoming America’s Next Top Model All Star.”
It’s time for panel. Tyra introduces the judges, Nigel Barker, Andre Leon Talley and guest judge Miss J. Time for critiques.
Allison is first up. Tyra loves the energy. Andre doesn’t like her heel sinking into the ground.
Lisa is next. Nigel thinks the photo is gorgeous. Tyra sees hurdles and high fashion. Andre would have rather have had her front leg be straight out.
Next, is Dominique. Miss J thinks it looks awkward. Nigel makes excuses for her, but ALT thinks she looks like a Masai warrior rather than an Olympian. Tyra thinks it’s kind of so so.
Angelea is next. Miss J thinks she looks like she’s asking a girlfriend, “hold my bag, come on.” ALT likes the way her foot looks, and says it is a high fashion shot.
Laura is next. Nigel thinks it’s absolutely stunning. Miss J thinks it’s a very strong picture. ALT doesn’t like her bent leg, but Tyra loves it.
Now it’s time for the results. The call-outs went as follows:
The bottom two are Angelea and Dominique. The judges know that Dominique takes great photos, but she’s not really memorable. The judges think Angelea’s photos are god, but not as strong as Dominique, and she breaks under pressure. Who will stay? Angelea. Dominique will be going home.
