Zubaydah, the second contestant, came into the studio and said she wanted to be Miss Black Howard Stern because she thought she "embodied" the show. Zubaydah went on to claim she was the first "super-model rapper," and claimed her debut album sold 200 copies before adding she had bit parts in both "Click" and "Norbit."
Howard proceeded to ask Zubaydah the following questions, and these were the responses she gave:
• When is it okay for a white person to use the n-word? Zubaydah replied she didn't think anyone, regardless of skin color, should ever say the word.
• If your child was upset because someone called him or her the n-word, what would you say? Zubaydah answered that she'd tell her child that "words are only words."
• If you had to choose one, would you make your skin lighter or darker? Zubaydah said she'd like to be "chocolater."
• If you are named Miss Black Howard Stern, how would you give back to the community? Zubaydah said she'd be a role model and a "motivational person" to young girls.
• Name something you hate about white people. Zubaydah insisted she liked everyone, so she didn't have an answer.
• What's something white people don't understand about black people? Zubaydah noted she thought white people were misinformed about the "culture and music" of black people.
• What do you like best about black people? Zubaydah went with the "history" of black people.
• What's the hardest thing you have to deal with as a woman? Zubaydah's response was "sexual advances."
• What would you say if a white person told you and your friends to be quiet if you were talking loudly in a movie theater? Zubayday claimed she'd say, "No, you be quiet."
After Zubaydah performed two rap songs, Howard asked the judges what they thought of her. King then scored her an 8, Bintell a 10, Robin an 8.8, Artie a 9, Fred an 8 and Gary gave her an 8.
