After everyone was saved by LaToya last week, Angelea frets that she was in the bottom two again. The Bianca drama from last week continues this week. Bianca is still playing persecuted princess. Lisa tells her she bullies everyone and then plays the victim.
Bre talks about how getting caught up in all the drama and how its costing her. She says she needs to start focusing on herself.
The challenge this week is a charity challenge. The girls will be playing flag football. The eliminated girls are brought back to play, too. They divide into red and blue teams. They also bring four NFL football players who are playing for their favorite charities. Each team gets two players, and the winning team will divide $5000 between their two favorite charities. Since this is America’s Next Top Model, there is another element. During breaks, the girls have to stop and pose for a photographer. The girl with the best photo gets a photo campaign on Tyra’s website and some jewelry.
It’s supposed to be flag football, but there is a whole lot of tackling going on. Lisa scores the first touchdown for the Red Team. During her photo shoot, Angelea seems more interested in the men than the photo. The Blue Team follows up with two touchdowns though, so they win the game. The judges choose Kayla for best photo. It’s nice to see her win. I loved her in her season, but she’s been more of a wall flower this season. Kayla gets her photo for Tyra’s website, with Leon helping to style her.
The photo shoot this week is a bar fight. The girls have to get photographed and get compared to supermodel Coco Rocha. Bianca and Shannon get paired together. Last week, they were at each other’s throats, so it should be interesting to see how they photograph together. Coco plays peacekeeper as the girls fight. Allison and Kayla struggle. I think bar fighting is WAY out of the Allison’s comfort zone. Angelea is paired with Laura. Laura is nailing it, and Angelea just looks lost. Angelea breaks down during the shoot. She says she feels like nothing she’s doing is working. Jay is supportive and tells her she can rise to the occasion. Angelea comes back and nails it. Bre and Alexandria are together. Bre is a little over the top even for Coco. Their photo shoot is a little much. Dominique and Lisa are together with Coco, and Jay says they were the perfect trio together.
At the judge’s panel, Coco is the guest judge this week. Kayla and Allison are judged together. The judge’s love the shot. Coco expresses surprise at the shot since Allison seemed to be struggling. Shannon and Bianca’s photo isn’t the best. They like Bianca, but are less positive about Shannon’s contribution. Angelea and Laura’s photo has the judge’s raving about Angelea, but tell Laura she doesn’t come off as a model. Alexandria and Bre’s photo gets the worst comments from the judges. The judges echo Jay’s comments earlier that Lisa and Dominique had a great shoot.
After deliberations, Tyra announces the week’s best photo.
- Top photo – Dominique
- #2 – Lisa

- #4 – Angelea
- #5 – Allison
- #6 – Kayla
- #7 – Shannon
- #8 – Laura
That puts Bre and Alexandria in the bottom two. Tyra tells Bre that she’s beautiful, but that her photos feel guarded. She tells Alexandria that she’s lost her competitive edge and seems to less focused. Alexandria stays. Bre beats a hasty retreat, not staying to talk to Tyra or say good-bye to the girls. It will be interesting to see how Bianca holds up without Bre to play peacekeeper.
