I knew it. I gosh well darn knew it. I knew if I let on that Brittaney was my favorite to win then, with my previous luck, she’d be going home sooner than later and dammit…I need to keep my mouth shut!
So getting back to the start, It’s Team Naomi versus Team Cheyenne and the girls are still reeling after Anoushka’s departure, the demolition of Team Nicole and the confrontation between Naomi and Nicole at the end of last weeks episode.
Chantal proves once again why she’s the least likable of Team Naomi…
While talking about world domination, Brittaney then chimes in with the thought of “Imagine if we all ended up as top 4 – Team Naomi – top 4!” to which Sarah replies “I’ve always said Top 4” – but without you Brittaney. They continue to gloat over their numerous wins while over at Team Cheyenne, the music is a bit more sombre and sad.
Nikolina is convinced that someone from Team Naomi needs to go next and that they, as a team, need to unite to beat them, though NSFW Olivia feels she is the one to take Team Cheyenne to ‘the next level’
It’s Test Shoot Time! Ruth has no idea what they could be in for next because apparently, they have done everything there ever was to do in the entire world already in these test shoots…well except for bring world peace…..and a lingerie shoot with a half naked male model.
So the girls will be modeling lingerie by burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese and it’s hard to tell if Ruth is excited about the challenge or surprised that there really is something that they haven’t done yet in these test shoots…
Olivia is just plain relieved she can finally just be herself…
Sadly, Dita isn’t on hand to help publicize her brand as she’s still smarting after her confrontation with the legendary Rhonda Burchmore at last years Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival but thankfully, now that Nicole Trunfio has no team left to focus on, she’s kindly stepped in to show the girls how to model in lingerie – being sexy witout being trashy…they have to think more Vogue and less Zoo Weekly Magazine.
While Nicole is talking away, it seems YaYa (who’s snuck around the back of the group) is having some issues with the task ahead….and by issues I mean “please Jesus forgive me for modelling in lingerie” as it turns out our girl YaYa is rather conservative and religious.
Now, YaYa is not the first girl with religious beliefs to appear on a modeling competition, but serisouly, these girls all seem shocked that they find themselves in a situation where they would have to pose either in lingerie or naked while participating in such a competition.
Now if YaYa wasn’t having enough issues with the challenge, Georges decides to throw in an extra kicker – they have to do the modelling with a half naked male model!
The girls start to get a bit flustered when Nicole jumps in and shows them the proper way to model lingerie without looking like a rank slapper…
So who did good? Well Sarah was back in fine form after last weeks test shoot disaster. She was grabbing hair and flaying herself about the male model and it worked.
And shock horror – YaYa comes out guns (or cans) blazing. She’s got the do it or die attitude and do it she does!
Who did not so good? Nikolina, poor lass looked like a deer caught in headlights. She somehow managed to suck any form of sexuality from the scene which resulted in the following..
NSFW Olivia should have nailed this. As YaYa states “Olivia wakes up and she just looks sexy”. This test shoot was basically tailor made for Olivia but when it came time to shoot….
YaYa – praise the lord, wins the test shoot and a whole bunch of lingerie from the Dita Von Teese collection that will never see the light of day.
Back to the industrial loft, and the split in Team Naomi is massive. No matter how many times we’re shown images of Chantal and Sarah playing nice with Brittaney, we all know those girls just ain’t getting along at all.
Brittaney is off with YaYa, confiding in her that Chantal is continuing to be distant and just a big ole ‘bitch and that it had gotten to the point where Britt had no choice but to confide in Naomi all the evil that Chantal had been diddling in. Smart move? We’ll soon enough find out.
Campaign Shoot Time!
The girls are off to shoot a look book for ‘iconic’ sunglasses brand Le’ Specs. Usually known for high end and very fashionable sunglasses, this particular collection is ‘By Craig and Karl for Le Specs’ and feature the most ghastly and unwearable sunglasses ever made.
But before I get into the shoot itself, I need to talk about the elephant….or potato sack in the room. You guessed it, what in the eff is Nicole Trunfio wearing?
Is this over sized and shapeless sack punishment for seeing Nicole work her magic in lingerie during the test shoot? Either way, I am aghast and disappointed in this dress (if it is indeed a dress).
Okay now I have that out of my system, lets talk the campaign shoot. Male models (or actually well fit dancers) are on hand to be a part of the shoot which will see each teams lookbook feature four photographs.
Cheyenne flounces in to greet her team looking gorgeous as usual. She edging her team into producing photos with motion and movement
While Team Naomi need to have the most awkward team meeting I’ve ever not been invited to.
Britt’s “talk” with Naomi earlier has now come to a head where Naomi flat out asks Chantal if she has been a complete cow about Brittaney behind her back.
“I’ve never said that at all”
Yeah Chantal, and I just adored that freaking white sack Nicole is wearing at the test shoot. See I can lie too, I just don’t do it to Naomi Campell’s face.
So Naomi takes Chantal’s word as golden gospel, stamps her foot and claims there’s a new rule for Team Naomi – If you’re gonna be a rotten bitch to each other, do it in the loft and don’t bring it to campaign shoot day.
It all then gets very awkward as Brittaney now has to work with the girls she ‘tattled’ to Naomi about.
So getting back to the campaign shoot….the tension from the earlier meeting is starting to show and even though last week Brittaney shone, Naomi finds it necessary to single her out – once again!
“I am most worried about Brittaney” “What are you doing Brittaney?” “Are you in the picture or are you not involved in the picture?” “See that bridge Brittaney, jump off it”….etc etc.
Naomi, while still in practice phase, decides she wants Ruth to jump whilst in heels in her photo. There’s a few practice wobbles before Ruth lands painfully wrong and she’s down and out. One needs to remind Naomi and the girls that only Sarah Jessica Parker can move like that in heels.
So moving onto the actual shoot…it’s fine. Team Naomi all do their thing and with five minutes left, it was time for Brittaney’s solo shot. Someone from Team Naomi utters “she looks scared” before they all giggle and Cheyenne even decides to point out that she believes Britt is Naomi’s weakest link.
One minute left…time for the group shot. So how’s that team dynamic going after Naomi had her little chat with the group?
Time for Team Cheyenne and immediately, Cheyenne’s group shot looks incredible when compared to Team Naomi’s. There’s various perspectives and interactions and movement. It’s looks quite vibrant, even in those ridiculous glasses.
The final result shows Team Cheyenne absolutely smashing it with NSFW Olivia producing the weakest shot.
Team Naomi offered up four single shots of the girls modeling the glasses. They liked Sarah’s smile shot, and loved Britt’s image. Chantal produced the weakest shot while they all fawned over Ruth.
TEAM CHEYENNE WINS! We all knew it was bound to happen, but yes, Team Naomi suffer’s only their second loss in the competition to date.
Naomi now has to put two of her girls up for elimination knowing only one will make it back alive. She calls it a ‘consequence’ for them loosing before choosing Brittaney and her mortal enemy Chantal to go up for elimination – but not before they put on their red lipstick and umm….Naomi…umm….crying over her decision.
She actually seems genuinely upset about having to put Britt and Chantal up, it’s slightly unnerving seeing Naomi in such a state.
Elimination Time. Chantal continues to prove why shes so damn unlikable by basically saying “We’ve been friends for years but in here….she could be drowning and I wouldn’t save her if it means I win”
Chantal and Britt both put forward their cases as to why they should stay. Chantal is here to win and not walk away a loser while Brittaney just lays down some (unintentional) smackdown..
Not impressed with Britt’s use of the word Angelic, Chantal decides to rebut with the following garbage “I feel shes completely wrong. I think I am versatile, I however do not think Brittaney is versatile, she has editorial looks I do not see commercial in her. I can do editorial, commercial, I can do it all. Each time we’ve lost, Brittaney has been the one down here, I have been strong the entire competition so I think it’s fair that I do stay over Brittaney”
So Cheyenne decides to keep the strongest girl in the competition…I kind of applaud her for not stooping to Naomi’s level in the elimination room and just getting rid of anyone remotely connected to Team Nicole, but…you know…Cheyenne…you’re sending my Britt home!
Talk about me being conflicted with my feelings on this.
Ok, I’m not conflicted. I was more….
This is where the ep ends for me as Britt has to go home. I’ve chosen not to write about the drivel that was Naomi in her black lace veil ‘mourning’ with the rest of Team Naomi over losing one of her girls.
Oh yeah…. here’s Team Anthobuzz’s team card right now…
