  • The girls are gladiators for there challenge and for their photoshoot they were in a Roman castle wearing modern Renaissance fashion.

    The girls are brought to a gladiator fighting school, where fighting instructor, Alex Mariotti, teaches them the basics of gladiator fighting. After donning gladiator costumes, Mr. Jay and Miss J. explain that the teach was supposed to help them bring out more versatility and power in their photos, before revealing the photo challenge, using the moves that they have just learned but still keep grace and composure. Whitney wins the challenge and is given a €1000 shopping spree, and chooses Anya to accompany her. The girls are taken to a Roman castle for their photo shoot dressed in modern Renaissance fashion, where Tyra shoots them. All of the girls but Katarzyna and Whitney receive praise. At panel, Dominique is heralded for producing a gorgeous shot, but is criticized for dressing too "game-show"-ish. Anya's photograph receives universal praise, though the judges voice concern over her generic personality. Katarzyna is criticized for having dead eyes in her photograph and for her seemingly flat personality, while Whitney is criticized for her overly-sexy poses. Katarzyna and Whitney land in the bottom two. Whitney for her inability to live up to her full modeling potential, despite previous strong photos, and Katarzyna because the judges felt that she was rather coasting than really making an impression. Katarzyna is eliminated in her first bottom two appearance.
  • This week elimination showed us that this is not only a one photo competition, it is about the history of the girls in the contest. (SPOILERS)

    Whitney once again is saved from elimination this week, showing us that the judges sent a girl home not only because of her look in that week's photo, but they remember how the girl started, how she has improved and how she looks when they are in front of them. Whitney has had a great photos, looks great in front of the judges and represent smart girls that are confortable in their own skins. So she staying one more week at least (I hope more), is something to celebrate. In the other hand, Fatima and Dominique are just boring with their attitude, thinking they are better than the others; they are lacking some humility lessons. Anya, of course, is taking awesome pictures but I would like to see more of her on the show, more personality, but she is in for great things in this business. Good Luck to her.
