America’s Next Top Model Recap: Fighting Martial Arts Style And Hitting New Heights

May 09, 2012 07:17 PM by Veronica Dudo

It’s one thing to be a beauty but can you be a beauty and kick some butt?!?! That’s the challenges for the models tonight when they leave Macau and head to Hong Kong to meet actor and pop star Nicholas Tse. The final five must duke it out–literally on America’s Next Top Model. Keep reading to find out who is on the chopping block on the CW’s reality TV show.

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, 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.

J. Alexander meets the models to tell them they will be working with one of China’s biggest celebrities to tape an action scene. The winner will fly back to Hong Kong at a later date to star in Tse’s music video. The task is to learn some fighting moves from Tse who is a huge action star. One by one the girls work to master the moves but poor Sophie she is so lady-like the other models even remark that she looks like a fairy. In the end, Laura wins that challenge and will return to be in Tse’s music video.

Back at the house, emotions are high since all of the models really wanted to win the challenge. Eboni says that Laura would sleep her way to the top! Laura busts into the room and announces to everyone that she would never do that.

The models return to the Macau Tower and are really put to the test for their photo shoot with Nigel Barker. At the location of the highest bungee jump in the world, the models will be strapped in a harness and must pose 700 feet in the air. Sophie goes first and is really scared. After she’s done she completely breaks down as the adrenaline rush diminishes. When Laura goes up she really has fun with the challenge–even waving to the girls inside.

The judge’s panel includes Tyra Banks, Nigel Barker, Kelly Cutrone and guest judge Nicholas Tse. The judges review the photos. Kelly says Annaliese is an actress not a model and Kelly calls Eboni the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz. Harsh!  

Tyra says the model with the best photo is Laura followed by Sophie and Annaliese. Eboni and Alisha are in the bottom two. Tyra says that the judges have been disappointed week in and week out with their pictures. Tyra says that Alisha will stay therefore Eboni is leaving but Alisha interjects saying that she should go because she doesn’t know who she is anymore! Tyra tells Alisha she can go but that she will be joining Eboni. Alisha still chooses to leave! Now the competition is down to the final three.

What do you think of tonight’s elimination? Join the conversation and leave a comment below!

    It’s too bad Alisha went home when she was safe. But it showed how mature she was to see that she knew she wasn’t ready for the modeling world. I thought Sophie overcoming her fear of heights showed how tough she is and I hope she wins it all and not Laura. I’m sick of hearing Kelly Cutrone’s big mouth, she did nothing but run down all the models…except for Laura. She’s a mean spirited woman and she adds nothing special to the show and I can’t believe the other three judges were fired and not her. Ridiculous.

    My suspicions have now been validated. ANTM is nothing more than a television show used to show Black women how totally inadequate they are. Last night’s show started with two white models and three black models and ended with one black model and two white models. WTF!
