Yu Tsai suggests that this is because Devin doesn’t know how to listen. Womp. But he still does his crazy eyebrow move and oddball jumping, and he kills the shoot. Sorry, Yu Tsai.
But then Hadassah reminds us that she is dead behind the eyes, which might be great for walking the stage as a pageant queen, but definitely does not work for a high fashion model.
Bello basically does a split, and Dustin can’t stop laughing during his shoot. Yu Tsai is so over Dustin and his Midwestern good looks.
Mamé, our Miss Maryland, rocks her time in front of the camera, per usual, and Nyle manages to make harem pants look good.
Back at the house, Stefano tells the camera that he has nothing to worry about, because, “I’m extremely good looking and I know that.” Good luck with that, bro.
Oddly enough, Nyle wonders aloud through his text-to-speech app when the makeovers are going to happen. Well, Nyle, they’re happening RIGHT NOW. And Hadassah, unsurprisingly, is not pleased.
I know what you’re thinking: Can they please just fix Courtney’s teeth and be done with it? Well, hold tight, little one.
We’re at the salon, and hairstylist Cristophe and Miss J lower the hammer. Devin’s head is shaved, and he looks a million times better. Lacey is assigned a “chic bowl cut.” I wasn’t quite sure what that meant, but she basically got a mod shaggy bob.
Ava, unfortunately, gets the “model mullet,” which means they basically chopped that poor girl’s hair up. I guess they thought that was very punk rock, but she looks like she went through a wood chipper.
Courtney gets her teeth whitened, thank goodness, and goes “model gray,” which turned out to be more greenish ombre and less Kelly Osbourne gray. Turns out Courtney wasn’t a regular teeth-brusher. She reveals this during judging when she tells Tyra that having white teeth makes her want to brush them all the time. It only took 20-something years for that to click. But more on the judging later.
Ashley got the “Ty Ty Chop.” 2 things: Tyra Banks now refers to herself as Ty Ty, which is a blatant rip-off of Taylor Swift’s Tay Tay, if you ask me.
