48. Bloody Eyeball (Cycle 13 ep. 1)
Nicole went from getting picked on as a child to getting picked on in the Top Model house. The reason? Jealousy! She’s, in my opinion, the best contestant on the show ever, and incapable of taking a bad photo.
Admittedly, Nicole is a strange girl. She talks like a stoner. She’s not interested in sex. She carried her books to school in a wheelbarrow instead of a backpack. At makeovers, she hoped to have her hair shaved off because “it’d be quicker in the shower.”
When Nicole introduces herself to the other girls as being born with a bloody eyeball and earning the nickname “bloody eyeball” (those are some clever bullies she had in her town), she certainly doesn’t win over any friends. But you’d think she told them she has five vaginas from their hilariously dramatic facial reactions. Aw, Nicole. You’d work that bloody eyeball more fiercely than any of these girls could.
So screw the haters. Especially Kara who routinely rallied the troops against our drug-free stoner beauty. “She has the social grace of a fetus,” Kara says of Nicole. As if comments like that demonstrate social grace. You know what they say, Kara: better to have a bloody eyeball than a wonky eyeball.
