Deemed to be a beautiful girl that lacked persona, Mollie Sue Steenis, a 25-year-old waitress from Tampa, FL, became the fifth girl eliminated from the sixth edition of America's Next Top Model during last night's broadcast of the UPN reality show.
Top Model 6's sixth episode began with the nine remaining girls returning back the house after Gina Choe was sent home during last episode's elimination ceremony. Although her favorite target was now no longer around, Jade continued to attempt to manipulate the other girls, trying to keep Nnenna off her game by attempting to convince her not to break off her distracting relationship with her boyfriend John.
The next day, Tyra Banks visited the girls and soon after appeared to faint, sending all the girls into a panic. She quickly rose to show that she had faked the fall to demonstrate that to be a successful commercial model you must be convincing.
Later, the girls went to the Groundlings Theatre where they met with acting coach Jeremy Rowley for a lesson in improvisation techniques. Although the improv exercises came easy to some of the girls, Mollie Sue appeared to have difficulty, prompting Rowley to ask her to provide more energy and effort.
The following day the girls put their learned skills to the test when they were challenged to perform improv sketches with Nick Cannon of MTV's Wild'n Out. As she had the day before, Mollie Sue once again struggled to bring her personality to the front of the competition. In the end, Furonda was crowned the winner of the challenge, landing her a guest starring appearance on UPN's Veronica Mars and the opportunity for her and Nnenna to record a HIV prevention public service announcement.
Afterward, Jay Manuel met the girls for their weekly challenge, a competition in which they had to once again rely on improv techniques to film a fresh and enthusiastic commercial for CoverGirl's Clean Liquid Make-up product. Once again, Mollie Sue had difficulty letting her personality shine. "You missed a line and there was nothing engaging about your delivery," Jay told Mollie Sue.
During the week's elimination ceremony, the judges viewed each girl's commercial to determine who would be eliminated. While Jade found herself in the bottom two for the first time, it was Mollie Sue who, having seemed to have the most difficulties throughout the week, was sent home. "You are not here because you take bad pictures, but because of something we call lack of persona," Tyra told Mollie Sue before eliminating her from the competition.
