Last night on “America’s Next Top Model” the Jez Smith episode we whittled our contestants down to just two finalists who will then go head to head next week. But one woman has already crumbled under the pressure of attending go-sees in Hong Kong. Who would get through to the final? And would they be American or British?
There was also a photo shoot for the “America’s Next Top Model” fragrance, Dream Come True, in front of the client, Hatch Beauty founder, Ben Bennett.
At the beginning of last night’s episode we were left with: Sophie (21) from England, Laura (20) from the USA and Annaliese (24) from England. My favorite is still in it! Actually, she was still in it at the end of the show too, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
Last night’s episode opened with the girls traumatized by the panel judgements and Annaliese feeling like the underdog. Oh and the one remaining American was stressing about that too!
So it was just in the nick of time that the girls got a Tyra Mail telling them to ‘Get Up and Go For it’ at the Hong Kong go-sees. As a little added spice, for every job they booked they got a thousand dollars.
William Tang loved Annaliese; he thought someone had to teach Laura to walk. Gregory Derham loved Sophie. Henry Lau said he needed someone sexier that Annaliese. Nude Is Rude also weren’t keen on Laura’s walk but their designer thought she looked good in the clothes.
So it came to pass that Laura booked 2 of the 4, Annaliese booked 3 of the 4 and Sophie booked all 4, making her the challenge winner and the face of Rude is Nude for the whole year.
Next the girls discovered they were doing a photo shoot for ‘Dream Come True’ Fragrance. Whoever won Best Picture would have it used for the campaign of the fragrance. The twist was that the girls had to pose in a life-size bottle of the fragrance.
The soft pink girliness of the photos shoot had Laura freaking out because she really is not that kind of a girl, she said. Sophie knew she had to stand out and she did well, with Mr. Jay loved praising her energy; he thought it was magical. Annaliese had trouble looking happy and Laura also struggled, although she can do sexy and sultry. Mr. Jay was worried for her, but he need not have been.
Sophie was chosen as the first finalist, followed by Laura. Annaliese was eliminated, and although I am pleased with the final two chosen I couldn’t help feeling their had been better photo shoots.
Next week the final two, Sophie and Laura, will walk in a Forever 21 Fashion Show. Who will be crowned ‘America’s Next Top Model’? Tune in next Wednesday to find out. It’s a battle of the USA vs. the UK. Didn’t we always know it would be?
