The models are whisked out of the country for a little trip on this week’s episode of America’s Next Top Model. The remaining contestants on the CW reality TV show visit Macau for a special challenge with creepy-crawling surprises. Hong Kong designer, Barney Cheng is the special guest.
Former contestants from “Britain’s Next Top Model” and an all-new crop of American model hopefuls are competing for the grand prize. The girls from America are Laura and Eboni. The United Kingdom models include Alisha, Catherine, Annaliese and Sophie. The stakes are high as the models are all vying for a spread in Italian Vogue, a celebrity hosting gig with Extra and a $100,000 contract with Cover Girl cosmetics.
While abroad the models are challenged to revisit their past with Clement Chan who helps them focus on what is important as they move forward in the competition. The girls change their cloths to symbolize their newfound confidence and show Chan who picks Laura as the winner of the challenge. Now, the American team made up of Laura and Eboni head to the spa for a day of relaxation. The women actually put their differences asisde and enjoy the moment.
If you thought for a minute you were watching Survivor–it’s totally understandable since this week’s photo shoot featured some special guests. The models posed in beautiful silk gowns accessorized with silkworms crawling on their bodies! Shockingly the girls do well with this challenge however, Catherine struggles with taping into the right emotions needed for the theme.
During the judge’s panel, when asked about her experience with the silkworms Laura tells Tyra Banks, “I love creepy crawly bugs.” The judge’s panel includes Tyra Banks, Nigel Barker, Kelly Cutrone and guest judge Barney Cheng. The judges review the photos. Tyra says the models in the bottom two–facing possible elimination–are Alisha and Catherine. Tyra says that Alisha has “the most high-fashioned look out of every girl in this competition” but she needs to start showing it.
Tyra also adds that, “as models we are paid to sell clothes not ourselves” but that Catherine made her dress during the photo shoot look less appealing then if it simply was on a hanger. Harsh! After deliberating Catherine is eliminated. Before heading back home to Britain she reflected on her time in the competition saying, “It was amazing.”
