'America's Next Top Model' recap: Enter the Haggis
A couple of people are a little pain-in-the assy, per usual. Mariah gets very worried that her hair will be cut, and says that it would be like cutting her culture. This from the girl who was honored to wear a Pocahontas costume! Happily for her, she keeps the length and just get bangs, which makes her look oddly like a young Britney Spears. Poor Eboni gets a bad burn on her cheek from a curling iron. A similar thing happened to me in kindergarten and almost resulted in Child Protective Services paying a home visit -- see the recap for the full story! Louise is the worst of all, as she tries to resist both a Dutch boy cut and a darker color. In the end the stylists do just what they intended to, and she shows herself to be a complete prat. She thinks it look like Justin Bieber, which is not entirely untrue, but then somehow also thinks she's also the greatest. This one is a mental case, for sure.
Then there is a weird interlude in which the teams each have to eat a table full of food from the other team's country. Of course they pick the most disgusting stuff, like haggis for the British food and pig's feet for the American. Plus-sized Seymone uses her fiercely real powers to down a whole giant... loaf?... of haggis, to the disgust of everyone, even after Sophie tells her exactly what it's made of. Later, she feels sick and also mad that Candace makes a haggis joke at her expense. Candace was just telling a joke to make herself laugh!
