Episode Summary

The models are greeted with a penthouse suite in Shanghai. After that, they learn a lesson on body movement and have to pose midair on high wires. The remaining ladies then shoot a cosmetics commercial.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • its world is the photoshoots and other one is what they really are like...

    First of all...Saleisha not wanting to share a bed?? like are you kidding me?????? the thing was a king size bed dear...even if you didnt mostly cover not even a quarter of that bed..the girls are giving to much of an attitude in my they all seem to want to alienate heather...she has no disadvantage or flaw (only the communication one) and now they are picking on her

    lisa...i didnt feel she was the worst of the about bianca??? her picture was horrible and plus...the makeup looked horrible on her...that colour of her lips was awful she cant take that much makeup! my favourite of the week...chantal (but not her covergirl pic) and jenah (loved her much attitude hehe love her)moreless
  • I enjoyed watching them in China

    I liked how this episode started out with all the drama of moving into their new home. The way the beds were was set up for conflict and I could not believe how horrible some of the girls were to Heather. Through out the episode it was cool to see what China looked like. The challenge were they did the moves up in the air was pretty cool. I enjoyed seeing Heather's attitude about it contrast Bianca's. Having them reciete lines and add their own personality to it was a good test of their modeling skills. I didn't mind that Lisa went home because she didn't seem to have enough personality, but there were some other girls I wish could have went home instead.moreless
  • ok episode...

    The models go to Shanghai which was cool. It was nice to see the scenery and the people. Their challenge was to pose in mid air. One of the girls was too scared and was eliminated. Heather won. Later on, the girls had to deliver a commercial for cover girl and Heather struggled. She could not deliver the lines even when they were read to her. Then they had a photo shoot. This was just a very average episode. The girls had drama in the house, mainly over Heather, and the challenges and pictures were nothing special. Overall, average, ok episode.moreless
  • The best parts were seeing a glimpse of Shanghai and a little bit of fun with some martial arts. The girls-not so fun.

    Too much attitude this show. I am fed up with Bianca. She would never make a wonderful model because she is not even close to being any kind of role model to look too. Models need to have somewhat of a good personality to be trusted out in the public eye. She refused to do one of the challenges and was disqualified. That alone should have had her eliminated from the contest. Heather was wonderful in that particular challenge and her picture in the last shoot was absolutely breathtaking. She does need help in speaking so I wish they would bring someone in to help her like they have helped girls in all their other weak areas. I am sick of the way Bianca picks on her all the time. Bianca is one of those people that make them selves feel more superior by putting down other people. I truly dislike that. That to me is a person who is very trashy and sleezy. The other girls seem to go up and down but each have strong areas and weak areas.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Callout order:


      The bottom two were Heather for not being able to deliver a commercial even when the lines were fed to her, and Lisa for not being able to handle critique. In the end, Lisa was sent home.

    • Bianca was disqualified from the challenge for choosing not to participate because of her fear of heights.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Heather: Are you just gonna let your fear just take over your life? Sometimes modeling includes you being up on high places.
      Bianca: Well, I won't go for that job.

    • Bianca: I know that Heather has, you know, disabilities or whatever. But at the same time I don't like the fact that Heather's 21 and she needs people to stand up for her.

    • Bianca: That was so funny. Heather cracks me up.
      Heather: I wish I could get the joke.
      Bianca: You. You the joke.

    • Bianca: Everyone here is Heather's mom, and I think it's annoying, damn it. Send her ass home. (laughs) No, that's mean...sorry. I take it back. It would be a lot easier, though.

    • Bianca: Heather is really annoying. I have to speak to Heather more than I have to speak to my little sister.

  • NOTES (3)

    • After this cycle of ANTM aired, Bianca received a lot of criticism about the way she treated Heather, even from Tyra herself. On her talk show, Tyra told Bianca she was "a mean, nasty b*tch" towards Heather, and that if she'd known what was going on in the house Bianca would not have made it as far in the competition as she had.

    • Bianca is the first girl on ANTM to refuse to participate in a challenge, which was to be suspended in the air while doing martial art poses. Since she's afraid of heights and didn't trust the people lifting her up, Bianca chose to sit out.

    • Heather is the Covergirl of the Week for the 7th week in a row.
