Alasia was a mess, according to Krista, who didn't do much better in her own photo shoot. Mr. Jay said Alasia got her pose from the zoo. Raina whispered that Alasia looked "preggers" during her photo shoot. (I could see who was going to be in the week's bottom two.)
After the commercial break the girls were in front of the judges. Tyra Banks was accompanied by mainstay Nigel Barker and guest judge Sally Hershberger, a celebrity stylist. Tyra also announced the addition of permanent judge, Andre Leon Talley, editor-at-large of Vogue. (I guess Miss J. Alexander had to sashay away.)
Jessica was judged best photograph.
Angelea was runner up. She was followed by Ren, Brenda, Simone, Tatianna, Anslee, Raina, Naduah, Alexandra, and Krista. That left Alasia and Gabriel in the bottom two.
Tyra said Gabriel was such a lovely girl in person. "But when your photo came up there was dead silence," an ultra dramatic Tyra said.
"Alasia, your photo made the judges very uncomfortable," Banks added. Alasia started crying.
I was shocked when Tyra announced that Gabriel was eliminated. "You have way too much potential to be taking photos like that," Tyra said.
Back at the loft, a stunned Gabrielle was packing up her clothes. "I'm in major shock," she said.
A defeated Gabrielle, said that she planned to go to school and pursue a degree in fashion merchandising. She said she would model on the side.
