April 2, 2009 (8:01 am) GMT
'America's Next Top Model' is down to eight with the departure of Sandra who could not represent the colour white well.

One more girl is sent home on "". Sandra was the last to be called in the judging room, after standing side by side to Celia. reasoned that Sandra has been taking "profile shots" all throughout the competition and the last one was not that great.

Sandra, not a favorite within her mates, was hugged on her way out and Tyra advised her to work on the poses. The 19-year-old was mad that she was sent home and vowed to keep modeling after the show because she believed she has a personality.

In the sixth week, the girls were challenged by making expressions with their faces. Jay Manuel brought his friend Beth Stern to guide the models in this session. Sandra in particular did not impress Jay who thought that she was falling out of the competition. Natalia won the challenge and she got an extra 50 more frames in the next photo shoot.

The next Tyra Mail was read, "You're all looking a little pale, I think you need some color." Arriving on the set, the girls found out that they will be splashed with paints and they have to emote the color they represent. Alison was pink, Aminat was green, Celia was gray, Fo was red, London was blue, Natalie was orange, Sandra was white, Tahlia was purple and Teyona was yellow.

In the judging panel, Fo was called first and in respective order were Teyona, Tahlia, Aminat, Allison, Natalie and London.

Next week, the girls will be shooting for CoverGirl Cosmetics commercial. and last season's winner McKey Sullivan will be the special guests.
