The models get a lesson in chemistry as they pose alongside sexy supermodels Alessandra Ambrossio and Rob Evans in a risqué photo shoot. The contestants get make-overs, where, surprisingly, a few of the men have meltdowns over their new looks.
Recap: Chemistry is Key
On this week's episode of America's Next Top Model, the remaining 14 contestants learn all about chemistry. Some contestants rise to the occasion, while others remain flaccid during a super sexy photo shoot that includes Rob and a mystery guest. And it's makeover time, and the guys get a painful introduction to manscaping.
To the Victor Goes the Spoils
Since Marvin had the top photo at panel, he's movin' on up to the Tyra Suite and taking his buddy Don with him. Seems like victory has gone to his head. He's convinced a guy will emerge as the lone victor, citing the fact that none of the five girls in his picture "brought it."
Chlea vs. Kelly
Even though Kelly ripped Chlea a new one during judging, girlfriend has apparently not learned her lesson. She tells a few of the others that all she did was suggest that perhaps Kelly comes across a little bit harsh. Chlea asserts she was just "tellin' it like it is" and keeping it real with Kelly. Chlea admits to being estranged from her own mother since the age of 17, and she has no intention of letting anyone control her. Mmmmmmm, somebody's got some issues.
Hook-ups on the Horizon?
Sexual energy is rising in the house, and Jiana thinks Phil might have a crush on her. Marvin says it's in his nature to want female attention. He may be photogenic, but he continues to prove he has no game after wandering around the house asking random girls if they want to come lay with him and Don using the Tyra Suite as bait. If the ladies weren't keen on him before, the fact that he is now a proven threat has made him even less appealing.
Home, Not-So-Sweet Home
Cory is struggling to fit in as the only homosexual in the competition. The house reminds him of high school, a time and place he doesn't care to revisit. He's also concerned about going home if he can't manage to man up at the next shoot.
The person with the best photo of the week is Mike. The runner-up is Jiana. The bottom two are Don and Chlea. Don stays, and Chlea is eliminated. Tyra reminds Chlea that every eliminated model gets the opportunity to do the photo shoots, and whoever gets the highest social media score will get to come back. Next week, tempers flare in the house, and the models walk a runway that has their heads spinning. America's Top Model airs Fridays at 9pm on The CW.
