Episode SummariesEdit

Episode OneEdit

The 14 finalists first arrive in their Los Angeles mansion and are greeted by judge and ex-supermodel, Sofia Lyukina. She informs them that their first challenge is beginning now and that they must put together a complete make-up look out of what's in the person next to them's suitcase. Sofia chose Chelsea as the winner who won a dinner at a 5-star restaurant for two. She chose to bring Ellie with her, whose make-up she used.

They later met judge and photographer, Samuel Edmund at their first photo shoot. They were tasked with stripping themselves of make-up, fancy clothes, and professionally-done hair and had to pose in a black and white picture with no make-up, a blank white t-shirt, blue jeans, no shoes, and a ponytail.

At the photo shoot, Hinarani, Nuru, and Ivana were all praised for their performances while Sabina and Hyo-yeon were criticised for trying too hard and being out of it, respectively.

At the judging panel, Hinarani, Nuru, Ivana, Chelsea, and Anastasiya were all lauded for their photos. In the end, Leyla landed in the bottom two for her disrespectful attitude toward the photo shoot crew, but it was Sabina who was eliminated for trying too hard but not getting it right.

Episode TwoEdit

Meaghan dropped by the house for the girls' first tutorial on runway walking. Hinarani and Ivana received praise from Meaghan on their walks while Hyo-yeon and Nuru were told to keep practicing. 

The week's photo shoot worked on the girls embodying common fears.

Ashley Arachnophobia Fear of spiders
Carina Autophobia Fear of being alone
Chelsea Chronophobia Fear of time
Ellie Claustrophobia Fear of small spaces
Hinarani Heliophobia Fear of light
Hyo-yeon Botanophobia Fear of plants
Ivana Coulrophobia Fear of clowns
Leyla Erotophobia Fear of erotic love
Natalie Necrophobia Fear of death
Nuru Nyctophobia Fear of the dark
Shawna Aquaphobia Fear of water
Victoria Pyrophobia Fear of fire

At panel, a vast majority of the pictures received heavy praise. Ashley, Hyo-yeon, Shawna, Hinarani were singled out for having the strongest photos. Leyla and Ellie both faced criticism for continuing her rude behavior and not fully embodying the fear and looking stiff and uncomfortable, respectively, earning them both spots in the bottom two. In the end, it was Leyla's unacceptable behavior that sent her home.

Episode ThreeEdit

Immediately after panel, Sofia visited the girls' home and informed them that their next challenge started now. The girls were tasked with creating a suitable outfit for a date night out of only thrift shop items provided for them. Ivana was declared the winner and given a US$5,000 shopping spree at H&M.

At the photo shoot, Samuel revealed that the girls will each be paired against their "biggest competition" in the contest and will have their photo shoots together.

Model Model Reason
Chelsea Carina Both are light blondes with bright blue eyes and a cheerful personality.
Shawna Nuru Both are strong, independent women of color.
Hinarani Ivana Both are considered to have the best runway walks out of the contestants.
Anastasiya Hyo-yeon Both are considered to have the most raw talent out of the contestants.
Ashley Ellie Both are delicate and fragile, yet can still hold their own.
Victoria Natalie Both have the two most quirky looks out of the contestants.

Victoria and Chelsea were both given heavy praise by Samuel, but told to tone it down a little for the sake of their respective opponents. Meanwhile, Nuru and Shawna were shown to both be struggling. 

At panel, Delilah stated that the winners of each battle were Chelsea, Nuru, Ivana, Hyo-yeon, Ashley, and Victoria and that they were all automatically safe from elimination. Nuru was told by the judges that if she was paired against anyone else she would've been in danger of elimination still, though. Shawna, Carina, and Natalie were all criticised for their performances. While, Shawna and Carina landed in the bottom two for their poor performances, it was Carina who was sent home.

Episode FourEdit

Delilah visited the mansion and gave the girls a tutorial on posing. She was impressed by Anastasiya, Hyo-yeon, Hinarani, and Victoria, while she continually had to help Ellie be less stiff and losen up more.

At the photo shoot, Samuel revealed to the girls that each of them would portray a character in a different period of time.

Ashley '20s flapper
Chelsea '60s hippie
Ellie '40s starlet
Hinarani Ancient Egyptian
Hyo-yeon Ancient warrior
Ivana '50s housewife
Natalie '70s disco girl
Nuru Present day
Shawna late 1800s voodoo priestess

Ivana, Anastasiya, Shawna, Victoria, and Hinarani were all given praise for their portrayals but Hyo-yeon, Nuru, and Chelsea had trouble combining sexiness with athleticism, couldn't relate to time period, and had trouble staying away from a "Halloween costume ad", respectively.

At panel, Ivana was heavily lauded for her photo, with the judges going as far as saying it was the best picture so far and that they could see the theme having its own spread in a magazine. While Chelsea had trouble making her picture unique, it was Nuru and Hyo-yeon landing themselves in the bottom two. In the end, Hyo-yeon was the one sent home for being unable associate an athletic archetype as being sexy and not loosening up enough.

Episode FiveEdit

Meaghan visited the mansion for the girls' next challenge. They were all to walk a runway and whoever had the best walk won the challenge. However, in order to see vulnerability, they were forced to strip down to their underwear. While Ivana and Anastasiya were both praised for their walks, it was Hinarani who won the challenge and was given a US$10,000 supply of MAC make-up. Nuru, Ellie, and Ashley were told to work on their walks. 

At the photo shoot, the girls found out that they were modeling swimwear and would have to be in a pool. Due to her fear of water, Shawna was not excited at all for the shoot. Chelsea, Hinarani, and Victoria received praise from Samuel for their performances, while Ellie, Natalie, and Ashley were shown to be struggling with posing in water. Despite her fear, Samuel told Shawna that she was doing a good job.

At panel, Hinarani, Victoria, Anastasiya, and Chelsea were praised for their photos, while Ellie, Natalie, and Ashley were criticised. Despite Ashley being disconnected from the shoot, it was Ellie and Natalie who landed in the bottom two. But in the end, Natalie was the one sent home due to having one of the weakest photos week by week.

The final three completed their Zara Magazine cover and fashion spread shoots. Anastasiya was praised while Victoria struggled.

Before the Nasia Artist runway show, Delilah surprised the final three by saying one of them will be immediately eliminated. Victoria was eliminated due to her being the worst in the photo shoot. Victoria, along with the eliminated contestants Nuru, Ashley, Ellie, Chelsea, and Ivana also walked in the show. Hinarani's runway performance was said to be the strongest although Anastasiya still did much better than they expected.

At panel, the judges agreed that Anastasiya is a stronger print model and had the better photo shoot, while Hinarani is a stronger runway model and had the better runway walk. Anastasiya's "cool and icy persona" and Hinarani's "wild and over-the-top" persona was also praised by the judges. 

After deliberation, it was decided due to Anastasiya's growth in the competition and overall skills, she would be the first ever winner of Earth's Next Top Model while Hinarani was declared the runner-up.
