Cece (Hannah Simone) relies on Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Reagan (Megan Fox) to recruit new models while Schmidt (Max Greenfield) desperately tries to solidify his relationship with Nick (Jake Johnson) and Winston (Lamorne Morris) on “New Girl” season 6, episode 13 (New Girl 6x13).

Spoiler alert: This recap contains plot details about season 6 of “New Girl.” The sixth season premiered Sept. 20. The show is available in Australia via Tenplay.

The episode begins with Cece complaining about the big agencies that have been taking her models away from her one by one. She’s left with Donovan (Trent Garrett) as her lone remaining client and unfortunately, he’s also being heavily pursued. Cece tries to keep him happy despite his immature requests.

Jess and Reagan offer to help find models for Cece, who has an ad audition to go to in a few hours. Jess and Reagan don’t necessarily agree with each other’s prospects and approach but they nevertheless find Cece three new clients, although two of them aren’t exactly model material.

Donovan feels threatened by Dean (Ivan Shaw), one of the new recruits and the only one who’s attractive among the three. He locks Dean up in a closet and bolts. Dean eventually gets the part in the Sausage Crunchies ad while the other two, Bruce (Wally Schrass) and Kirby (Amir Levi), remain members of Cece’s Boys.

Schmidt, meanwhile, is bothered by the fact that Nick and Winston don’t care that they know nothing about Coach’s recent affairs. Schmidt creates a bonding ritual for the three of them to share in an attempt to solidify their friendship and not forget about each other in the future. The trio head to a spa, where Schmidt orders the “elite package” for each of them, only to realise that it includes full Brazilian waxing.

Nick and Winston decide to go ahead with it anyway despite their early protests. They promise Schmidt that he’s not losing them even after he leaves the loft, with or without rituals. The dramatic sequence while they are being waxed is definitely the highlight of the episode.
