Created by world-renowned supermodel Tyra Banks, who executive produces the series with Ken Mok, America's Next Top Model chronicles the transformation of everyday young women into potentially fierce supermodels. Fourteen participants will live together and vie for the incredible grand prize: an opportunity to be managed by Wilhelmina Models, a fashion spread in Seventeen magazine, and a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl Cosmetics.
The photoshoot is for J Lo Swimwear. The photo is taken on a Manhattan skyscraper in chilly weather.
Ebony and Adrianne roomed in the Miami Room. The three Christans of the house (Robin, Shannon and Kesse) picked the Milan Room, and Elyse, Nicole, Katie, Giselle, and Tessa roomed in the Tokyo Room.
Call Out Order: Ebony Elyce Kesse Adrianne Katie Nicole Giselle Robin Bottom Two: Shannon Tessa Tessa Carlson is the first girl to be eliminated due to the fact that she fumbled during the first photo shoot. She also had trouble finding her footing on the icy rooftop and following the photographer's instructions.
The Bible passage that Robin shows Elyse is Psalm 14, verse 1; The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. (King James version.)
Giselle won the first competition, where the girls had to change quickly and walk on the runway. Her prize was a night out with Wyclef Jean. She chose to take Adrianne, Katie and Nicole.
We learn that Miss J. has (or had) a boyfriend who was a doctor
Katie was deemed 'just too sexy' by the judges. They felt with her constant sexy poses and the fact that she hooked her finger in her bikini bottom, she looked too much like she should be in a gentlemen's magazine than be a top model. For that, she was eliminated.
