After traveling the world, Jessica was back home in Los Angeles for last night's episode. She visited a high school, where she talked to a few female students about her journey — and their self-image.
Jessica admitted that high school was rough for her — "girls didn't like me very much." Some of he students talked about their body issues, and Jessica related to them. One young lady felt insecure because everyone on her dance team is thin and petite, and CaCee actually had good advice: "I would just be the best dancer out there on that team." I wish that all along, this show had spotlighted how talent, brains, generosity and kindness can be far more valuable than "pretty."
Ken, CaCee and Jessica urged all of the girls in the classroom to say, "I'm beautiful." If only it had turned into a dance number, with the ladies singing, "I'm Beautiful, Dammit"!
Panya, a woman Jessica met in the Thailand episode — who had severely damaged her face by using lightening cream — was flown in to take part in the finale, which involved a fashion show. Jessica and Ken — and some unseen makeup artists — gave Panya a makeover. For a "new Panya."
