Dueling Divas and a Photo Shoot on the Rocks Season 9, Episode 3

Episode Recap: "The Girls Go Rock Climbing" Upon reviewing the comments on last week's ANTM blog, it seems we were all in agreement that the judges made the right choice in sending Mila home first. Most people also confirmed my suspicion that Bianca is this season's resident witch with a capital B. This week, Bianca continued on her mean streak and Miss J taught the models how to strut. The episode started out with the girls critiquing each other's walks while Saleisha gave Heather a makeover and a big boost of confidence. Some of the other girls helped out in a nice attempt to make Heather feel more like part of the gang. Before the girls could feel too at ease, however, the postman delivered Tyra Mail and the first mission was underway. The models met up with Miss J at the "Fashion Madhouse" where he showed them how to work the catwalk while modeling some unconventional attire. While most of the girls kept quiet and took in Miss J's advice, Bianca seized the opportunity to size up her competition once again. This time she chose Saleisha as a target. From a viewer's perspective, you could tell there was some tension between the two despite the fact that all the girls needed help with their walks. It seemed to be turning into a case of the dueling divas. Following the lesson with Miss J, the group returned to the mansion and the tension brewing between Bianca and Saleisha came to a boil. I was glad to see Saleisha really stand up to Bianca after Lisa pretty much took all of her abuse last week. Once the girls recovered from another catfight, a new Tyra Mail was read. For the next challenge, the ladies met with designer Colleen Quen, who tested out their improved walks and ability to model in garments with restricted movement, with the winner joining Colleen for her upcoming Parisian fashion show. Ambreal and Saleisha looked like absolute knockouts on the runway, while Ebony and Sarah just knocked each other out. In the end, Saleisha was chosen to join Colleen in Paris, much to the dismay of Bianca, who made her annoyances known to the viewers at home. After a bit more downtime at the house, the ladies were sent off to this week's photo shoot; modeling high fashion gear while rock climbing. As per usual, Jay Manuel instructed them on their posing. I can't imagine that this shoot was easy for any of them, as I have a difficult enough time climbing rock walls in a t-shirt and jeans. Sarah finally made an impression on me with this one, and Heather showed exactly why she belongs in the competition. The rest of the group seemed to have a difficult time balancing on the rock wall and posing. When it was time to meet with the judges, Tyra tried out her French accent while reminding the girls what they were playing for. Janet and Jenah rocked their shoots while Bianca and Kimberly fell a bit flat with the panel. I find it amusing that two of the most overly confident girls in the group have yet to prove their abilities. Every girl that makes it into this competition is beautiful, so why do these girls think they're any better than the others? The judges seemed to agree, since they were chosen for the bottom two. Kimberly was sent packing and she sobbed the whole way out. But in more exciting news, they're doing makeovers next week! Bring on the weaves and the waterworks!

Premise: Aspiring models compete for a chance to break into the business in this runaway hit. Created and executive-produced by supermodel Tyra Banks, its formula of beautiful women plus unappealing behavior make it enormously popular and one of the more intriguing reality shows, with its wannabe cover girls living together in a house and, between catfights, going out on photo shoots while they vie for a modeling contract.
