Surprise! Tyson Beckford's at the door! The Top Model ladies struggle to keep it together. I, for sure, would have passed out. Tyson is there to teach them how to be good spokespeople. After we all finish cleaning up our drool, Tyson has the ladies find items in the house and has them do their best to sell it. Most try to use sex appeal, which ends up making them look ridiculous.
All of this alludes to the upcoming challenge. The ladies are split into groups and are asked to come up with with a brief public service announcement for Keep A Child Alive. Heather, Ambreal, and Jenah's idea is picked, and Heather's name is randomly selected as the winner. Awesome prize, by the way -- a photoshoot directed by Mary J. Blige. You go, Heather!
And ANTM continues on their environmental kick. The ladies once again meet with Jay Manuel who explains to them that during this week’s photo shoot, the girls will pose as recyclable materials. What is Jay doing to these girls? Who comes up with these ideas?
Jenah rocks the shoot as cardboard. Saleisha poses as car parts. The judges are most impressed with these two. Most of the other girls have trouble expressing themselves during the shoot. But they are happy that Heather finally decided to face the camera.
While they aren’t that impressed with many of the ladies, they are least satisfied with Ebony and Ambreal. I guess Ambreal’s newspaper getup and Ebony’s bubble wrap pictures weren’t cutting it. Both girls end up in the bottom two.
Just as Tyra declares that Ebony is safe and Ambreal is about to be sent packing, Ebony says she’ll go home in Ambreal’s place! Woah! Is this the same girl from the first episode? Where did the girl with the attitude go? I knew she had changed and was less confident that the beginning, but really wouldn’t have thought she would have offered up her chance. She had so much potential. I guess she meant it when she tossed around the idea of going home.
Tyra makes it known that she does not like a quitter. She ultimately lets Ebony leave and allows Ambreal to stay in her place. Ambreal better give 110 percent next week because I doubt any of the remaining girls will forfeit their position.
