This week on "America's Next Top Model," the models will have to do some acting in a fragrance commercial, portraying the opposite sex. Celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton will also make a guest appearance.
As usual, the episode begins as the guys and girls return to the model home to find the winning photo of Jourdan (with Chris H.) displayed as digital art. Jourdan seems obsessed with looking at her photo, but most of the others can't be bothered.
Jourdan has sparked some hard feelings from many of the models, girls and guys alike, as she really rubs them the wrong way. One person that is on Jourdan's side is Nina, whom Jourdan asks to join her in the Tyra Suite this week.
As the models are all interacting together, some playing foosball, some just sitting and chatting, Alex tells some of the other girls that she is having a hard time not being able to talk to her mom, who is a breast cancer survivor.
The next morning, Jourdan and Nina are talking about the phone time. As winner of the Tyra Suite, Jourdan feels that she is entitled to more time than the others, except for Nina, whom she will also give 10 minutes to. Everyone else gets 5 minutes per call. This doesn't sit well with the others, who say that when others have won, they've all doled out the time equally.
Jourdan is on the phone with her boyfriend, and because she misses him so much, she decides that she will not take just 10 minutes, but will take 15 minutes, leaving most everyone else out in the cold. Remember, there are 12 people who need to make calls and there is only one hour for them to make their calls. It's easy to say why most people don't like her.
Later that morning, the models are taken to Hollywood and Highland, where they meet BryanBoy and celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton. BryanBoy tells them they will be fashion correspondents for Smize TV, and will be interviewing people on the street. They'll be fitted with earpieces, and BryanBoy and Perez will be feeding them questions to ask people, and they'll have to use them, or they could see their challenge score drop because of it.
Cory, Nina and Chris H. are first, and they are fed questions to ask people about what they're wearing. Nothing outrageous has been suggested, so far. Don and Kaman talk to some people, and the guy Kanani is talking to is so taken with the camera, that he doesn't even hear her question. Renee also interviews someone without anything crazy being asked of her.
When it's Phil's turn, they suggest he ask the lady about her personal style, then about how she feels about weaves. The lady says she doesn't have a weave, and Phil asks if he can pull it. She says yes, and he is told to ask if she likes it rough, and will she spank him. She refuses and turns to walk away. Poor Phil interviews that he was asking normal questions, when he was told to ask things he would never ask on his own.
Jeremy is also prompted to do some outrageous stuff. He's told to take his shirt off, which he does. Then, he's told to take off his pants, which he does. OMG! Perez and BryanBoy are really impressed with his willingness to do whatever he's asked.
Jourdan also gets some weird questions to ask a guy, and she does what is suggested, but BryanBoy and Perez think she looks nervous.
When it's Marvin's turn, Perez gives him some suggestions that are rather mean towards his interviewee, and Marvin rejects them. Perez is unimpressed, saying that Marvin is bombing the challenge. Marvin interviews that he knows that Perez got famous from bashing people, and he doesn't want to bash people in order to be famous, so looks like he's going to fail this challenge.
BryanBoy and Perez gather the models and announce who the winner of the challenge is. He says that the guys really rocked it, and Jeremy is the winner. He was disappointed most with Jiana and Marvin. As the winner, Jeremy gets to pick a girl to share his prize with, and of course, he picks Jourdan. His prize is a romantic dinner.
At the dinner, Jourdan talks mostly about herself, and how she feels everyone hates her in the house, and how difficult it is. Blah. Blah. Blah. Jeremy, of course, gives her sympathy, and Jourdan is happy they had this time together, as it brought them closer as friends.
Scores are as follows:
The next day, the models are taken to a the heart of Culver City, where they meet Johnny Wujek, who is the photo shoot creative director. He tells them that rather than doing a photo shoot, they'll be doing a sexy fragrance commercial. He says that there is a catch, however. Guys will be dressing like girls, and girls will be dressing like guys. Cory is super excited.
Jeremy Rowley, who is an acting coach and comedian will be coaching everyone on how to act. He tells the girls to have a more open stance, and the guys to act like there is a string, pulling them from the top of their head, straight up. Johnny says this will be an over-the-top parody, and it will give them a chance to show off their comedic skills. He says they will pair off guy and girl, and at the end of the scene, they'll kiss that person, so he is going to give them a chance to pick who they will kiss.
Jourdan gets to pick first, and of course, she picks Jeremy. Phil picks Jiana. (Shock. Right?) Nina picks Chris H. Don picks Kanani. Marvin picks Renee. (and she looks unhappy.) Lastly, Cory chooses Alex.
The models head off to hair and makeup, and there are some hilarious looks. The guys are not happy having to wear panty hose, and Phil as a girl is priceless, with his beard in tact.
First to shoot are Cory and Alex, who are dressed as business people. Cory does great, having drag experience, but Alex looks really uncomfortable.
Next, is Marvin and Renee, who are dressed as surfers. Marvin goes way over the top when it's time to kiss Renee, and he actually licks her face. Ewww. Renee is cracking up.
Phil and Jiana are the preppy couple. Phil is really over-the-top, and he is doing a great job walking in super high heels. Their kiss is really sexy too.
Chris and Nina are next. Chris is having a hard time in his heels. They are a Hollywood couple, and Nina is walking with a swagger that looks like she's drunk. Johnny isn't impressed with her walk. Chris really makes a pretty girl.
Kanani and Don are next. They are the athletic couple. Don is dressed as a cheerleader, and Kanani is really rocking it.
Jeremy and Jourdan are a Goth couple. Jourdan is having a problem embodying her role, as she says she's from a small town, and she doesn't know what a Goth person is. Jeremy is having fun in his role, and he even lifts his skirt, showing his underwear. Their kiss is really something, but Jourdan says it's just a role. Sure looked like she was into it to me.
It's the elimination skull mail time!
"Tomorrow you will meet with the judges. Only 11 of you will continue on in the hopes of becoming America's Next Top Model."
At panel, it's time for critiques.
First is Chris and Nina. Tyra really liked Nina, but Kelly didn't think she was believable. Rob thought she could be a bit rougher. Tyra loved Chris, saying he was a beautiful woman. Rob loved how he played with his hair, but Kelly thought he looked a little too "draggy."
Don and Kanani are next. Kelly loved Kanani, saying she blew her away. Tyra agreed, saying if she was a little taller, and had a penis, she'd say "call me." BryanBoy tells her that her social media scores are really great. Kelly loved Don, especially the kiss, while trying to stay upright in stilettos was awesome. Tyra loves how Don went for it. Kelly says that Don really made her laugh, and she doesn't laugh enough. BryanBoy says that his fans are loving him this week.
Jeremy and Jourdan are next. They look a bit awkward, and the way Jeremy has his arms crossed in front of him when they kissed looks really strange. Kelly thinks that Jourdan dropped the ball in portraying a Goth person. Jourdan tried to exclaim that she didn't know what Goth was. Tyra wasn't having it, saying she hates a model that is not smart.
Jiana and Phil are next. When it's time for the kiss, they're really going at it. Tyra remarks that she saw tongue. Rob even admits that there is something going on, or they're both just really good actors. Kelly really enjoyed Jiana. Tyra didn't like her performance. BryanBoy says her social media scores are dropping. Rob thinks Phil did a great job. He loves how he dropped his bag when it was time for the kiss. Tyra says that Phil makes a pretty woman.
Cory and Alexandra are next. When it's time for the kiss, you can see Cory really getting into it, and Kelly tells him, "You are not gay!" He tells her that he wanted to convince them that he could kiss a girl believably. Kelly says it was amazing. Rob asks BryanBoy if he believed that kiss, and BryanBoy replies that he did indeed. BryanBoy tells Cory that his fans were loving him this week. Kelly and Tyra thought Alex was dropping the ball. BryanBoy said that her social media scores are consistently high, but it's time to pick it up.
Marvin and Renee are next. Tyra remarks that Marvin looks nervous. He says that he's just worried, because he knows what he did in the video, and he doesn't know how they're going to take it. When they show the kiss, with Marvin licking Renee's face, everyone looks shocked, and Kelly calls it horrendous. But Tyra remarks that Renee was giggling, and Renee says that they had a plan. Tyra loved Renee's "'S'up" remark at the beginning of the skit, calling it genius, but the rest was just "blah." They show some video of fans saying they really hated it. Kelly disagrees, saying she really liked it.
Now, the judges scores, challenge scores and social media scores will be tallied up and the call-outs are as follows:
The bottom two are Jiana and Alexandra. Jiana is at the bottom this week, after previously being at the top, due to one weak performance. Alexandra hasn't been at the top like Jiana, but she's been staying in the middle of the pack. Not great. Not horrible. Who goes home? Alexandra is leaving the competition, and will join the other eliminated contestants in the "comeback series."
Next week, the models will have to create a campaign for Emerson. And Chris has really done it, as he makes Nina, his closest ally, mad at him. Tune in on Sept. 7 at 9:00 p.m. on The CW to find out.
