Episode 8: The Girl Who Gets Bad News Broadcast date: Tuesday 15 January, 2008 at 21h00 Broadcaster: e.TV
After Tyra’s emotional outburst last week, the wannabe models are schooled on how to handle the media. A journalist from Entertainment Tonight shows the contestants the do’s and dont's of interviews. Using their newly learnt skills, they get a special treat - to interview the American rapper/actress and fashion designer, Eve.
Taking a break from the competition, the contestants decide a night out on the town (Los Angeles) is exactly what they need. One girl who is usually shy and introverted shows her wild side on the dance floor, surprising the rest of the contestants.
Another model’s experience turns into a nightmare when the news breaks that a childhood friend had died suddenly. Struggling through her loss, her determination to stay in the competition is put to the test in the next challenge. In the photo shoot, each contestant portrays one of the seven deadly sins.
