Episode Summary

The final four models learn hip-hop hula moves to better channel Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of fire and volcanoes, for the photo shoot. And then the bad news: the ladies learn that two of them will be eliminated.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • The girls learn Hawaiian Hip Hop and become Goddesses.

    This episode was different from any other of ANTM. Hawaiian Hip Hop was introduced to the final four girls as the challenge. Whichever girl did the best would receive a prize never given before on ANTM: a free getaway in Hawaii at a luxurious hotel. Seriously, HHH was the strangest thing that I have ever seen in a long time and in my opinion shouldn't be done. The hip hop part totally ruins the beauty of the Hawaiian dance.

    Then the girls were told that they would become the Goddess Pele for the photo shoot and that at judging not 1 but 2 girls would be going home.

    All mouths dropped open when Mr. J told them that. It was funny.

    I liked all four girls, but there was no question in my mind that Nicole would be one of the finale 2. They all did a very good job.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Nicole: I think that Erin has a great look, but she does not have the mentality for this. Her self-esteem is tied in with what other people think of her a little too much and that's a dangerous thing with modelling.

    • Laura: I could go home and I could get a normal job but I wanna be successful. I wanna show my siblings that they can be successful, too. And I feel like modelling's the best way that could make me happy and also provide for my family.

    • Jay Manuel: Jennifer, you gonna nail it?
      Jennifer: Yeah. Do I have a choice, Jay?
      Jay Manuel: Actually, no!
