Episode Summary

The girls' photo shoot for this week is simple beauty shots, photographs taken in black and white that focus on their face. After that, the girls are taken to an acting challenge where they will have to act out a scene. The last stop for the girls is a fast-paced action packed Matrix like commercial for Rollitos chips.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • The girls learn about acting and they do a commercial

    This episode started out a little boring. The close up black and white shoot just wasn't that interesting. It is important to test their skills as a model, but it just isn't as good of T.V. as some of the unique shoots they come up with. After that they went to acting lessons which I thought got off to a wierd start. Everyone just started crying when they were shown a blank piece of paper. It was bizarre, and I actually had to agree with Camielle that it just wasn't worth getting upseat over. The whole episode showed an interesting side of Camielle and how she isn't willing to show emotions. The rest of the acting challenge got better. They had to do a Soap Opera like scene and it was interesting to see how the performed. They had to do a kiss at the end, and I enjoyed seeing who actually tried to do it. I was glad that April won, because I felt like she did a really good job and I could see her being in a Soap Opera. Towards the end of the episode they did a comercial where they were fighting eachother to be America's Next Top Model. It was kind of cool how it worked, but I would have liked to see more acting. In the end Catie went home and I was really glad because she was being way to emotional.moreless

  • NOTES (0)


    • When Camille changed the lines during her acting challenge, Mark Collier warned her if she did that in front of David Mamet she'd never get an acting job. David Mamet is a playwright known for his gritty, overlapping dialogue. His most famous work is probably Glengarry Glen Ross.
