  • The challenge is to work a "green" carpet and handle themselves well at a party. In their photoshoot they have to be models getting on a plane.

    The girls learn about interview skills from Paulina Porizkova. Lauren cuts the tip of her thumb while chopping onions and needs stitches. This week's challenge required the girls to work a "green" carpet at a 7 Up party and handle themselves well at the party. Anya is praised for her ability to connect with others, and wins another nude photo shoot for 7 Up and $10,000 as payment. Tyra Mail hints to the girls that they are going abroad, and the girls pack their belongings. They are taken to an airplane-themed photo shoot where Jay tells them that they will be portraying a group of jet-setters boarding the airplane, using their suitcases as props. Fatima runs into trouble regarding her travel document and misses the photo shoot because of an appointment she had made to fix the issue at the consulate. After the shoot, the girls are surprised that judging will take place immediately - at the tarmac hangar. Most of the girls are praised while Whitney is criticized for being too pageantry and Stacy Ann for not knowing her angles. In the end, Fatima lands in the bottom two with Stacy Ann. Fatima is called out for missing the photoshoot, and Stacy Ann just can't deliver. Fatima is ultimately saved by her past performance. This makes Fatima only the second girl in ANTM history to miss a photo shoot and not get eliminated, after Shannon Stewart of Cycle 1. Fatima is also the first girl ever in ANTM history to miss a photo shoot and was kept over someone who had taken a shoot. After elimination, Tyra announces that the remaining six girls will go to Rome, Italy for the rest of the competition.
