America's Next Top Model Cycle 6 Episode 8
In this week's episode, the contestants were critiqued harshly by an agent (later revealed to be an actress, whose tactless remarks were aimed to irk), wanting to test their response under pressure.
After the critique, each model took a Polaroid shot to measure how they took the criticism and how it affected their work through their facial expressions. Jade won the challenge because she took the criticism she was given without allowing it to affect her negatively. Jade chose Nnenna to share in the prize with her, which turned out to be a visit from a loved one. Nnenna's boyfriend, to her dismay, arrived, as well as Jade's mother.
The girls all went to the dentist to have their teeth whitened. However, Joanie and Danielle were both offered to have their teeth fixed. Joanie received veneers to fix her "snaggle tooth", and while Danielle was offered the chance to fix the gap between her front teeth, she refused claiming the gap was a part of who she was. After Joanie had her surgery, she did not like how her mouth felt. She also did not like how she talked but when everything was done, she was very happy.
Two photo shoots were taken in this episode, one directed by Tyra, in which each girl was photographed crying using a tear jerking formula, and the other was a doll photo shoot.
While Joanie and Furonda impressed the judges, Brooke and Jade landed in the bottom two, Brooke, for her lackluster performance, and Jade for her overall "fakeness". Ultimately, it was Brooke who was sent home due to her inability to transfer her strong looks onto a photo.
