Episode Summary

EDIT
Million Dollar Look
AIRED:
In this episode, the 9 remaining contestants are asked to form three teams of three. The competition is to for each team member to put together an outfit by using only $100 per team. They are given a list of stores on Melrose Avenue to visit. Their outfits will be judged that night at a club event. The first team (Billy, Monique and Ray) approach the challenge by explaining the details to the store owners and asking them to loan them their outfits. They promise to return them after the challenge. The second team (Joel, Laura and Julia) decides to use their good looks to coax the store owners into giving them free clothes. The third team (CJ, Chelsea and Ashley) creates a fake charity in order to get donations from people they see out and about. This was CJ's idea. Ashley agrees to follow it. She's shown ripping a bracelet from a man she encounters. Chelsea hates the idea and does not take part in promoting the fake charity. CJ eventually realizes it was a bad idea. During their shopping, all teams pass a planted boy asking for donations to children's cancer research. This was to test their charitable nature. Billy wins the challenge. CJ shows up not wearing any shoes, which does not impress the judges. Ashley is deemed to have the second worst outfit. Before entering the Hall of Beauty, CJ and Ashley both have a chance to aid a bike messenger that crashes. CJ helps the man out. Ashley just stares as the man slowly gets up and back on his bike. In the Hall of Beauty, Ashley is eliminated from the competition.moreless

    The challenge in this episode allowed one team to display the right way to accomplish the goal, and another team to show the complete wrong way to get the job done. I'd like to end on a happy note, so I'll start with the team that did it the wrong way. They made up a fake charity in order to garner donations from people. I really hope producers went up to these people afterwards and reimbursed them for what they had stolen from them by this team. I was absolutely disgusted when watching Ashley rip a bracelet off a man and then run away off to her next victim. She deserved to get eliminated this week. Thankfully, the judges obliged. Then you have the team with Billy, Monique, and Ray. They were honest about the challenge with the store owners and respectfully asked to receive their outfits for free. They even promised to return the clothes after the challenge. That was nice to see.moreless
