The episode starts out with Tyra quarantining the girls house – she said it was the grossest in top Model history! And for their punishment? No they don’t have to clean it, they are moving to Hawaii!! After they arrive in Maui and get set up in their astonishingly gorgeous house they do an afternoon of surfing training and then are surprised by a surf photo challenge. Poor Laura is getting redder and redder but says shes been applying spf 80. A few of the girls did really good but Erin was on fire, so she won the challenge. She chooses Nicole and Brittany to join her for a helicopter ride which is quite funny as she was only moments ago (in the confessional) she was nonstop complaining about Brittany. The motive must have been strategic, or maybe she dislikes every girl so it doesn’t matter who she chooses.
For the photoshoot it’s to the sugarcane and they have Tyra as the photographer again? I guess they couldn’t find anyone else. At any rate it’s another beautifully stylized idea of having the girls portray “hapa” which is Hawaiian for two mixed races or half.
As Japanese & Malagasy Nicole was given best photo of the week. It was quite strong but perhaps Jennifer and Laura were better (thoughts?).
Botswanan & Polynesian Jennifer looking all National Geographic.
Mexican & Greek Laura. Thank goodness for the makeup to hide her red sunburn.
Egyptian & Tibetan Erin did that same old pose, but darn if she isn’t the most gorgeous girl.
Native American & East Indian Brittany, the sari and headdress look amazing together. They must have had issues with this photo if it’s being changed to black and white, Tyra did complain Brittany was too stoic.
Russian & Moroccan Sundai was drowning in this outfit, Tyra compared her to a fierce 12 year old Gap Kids model! It’s like a backwards compliment.

Erin and Brittany were in the bottom two and Brittany was sent home. So sad. Erin better step up with this second third chance.
