ANTM 6 FALLING FAIRYTALES
\At panel, several girls tripped or fell during the challenge during an impromptu Vivienne Westwood style runway challenge at judging. While Joanie received praise for maintaining a model’s walk and her steadiness on the 10-inch heels, Danielle fell twice – the second time which she sprained her toe and was on crutches during panel deliberation. Jade and Danielle were praised by the judges for having the top photos.
Gina and Kari landed in the bottom two. The judges said Gina lacked the confidence she needed to get by as a model and her photos had been some of the worst in the bunch. Despite that, Kari, who was considered as one of the front-runners of the competition, was sent home, leaving Gina, as well as other girls in shock.

At panel, Alasia’s outfit was unanimously lambasted, but her photo received universal applause. Upon receiving critique, Ren expressed her unhappiness because of all the drama happening in the house. With this, combined with her unsightly photograph, landed her in the bottom two with Brenda, who also have a weak photo and for still not embracing her makeover. Despite initially stating her desire to continue, Ren then revealed she wanted to check out from the competition because she just wanted to tell her mother what she feels about her. But this was not needed, as Tyra handed the last photo to Brenda, telling her that “another transformation” will take place.
First call-out: Alasia Ballard
Bottom two: Brenda Arens & Ren Vokes
Eliminated: Ren Vokes
Featured photographer: Cade Martin

At their ty-overs (word created by Tyra for make overs) Bre was angry by having a very short hair. Alexandria was crying of happiness for her hair cut, which left the girls confused. At panel, many girls receive praise either for their photos or for embodying their brand word well. Lisa’s devil-may-care photo and daring outfit at judging wins the judges over and she receives the first call-out. Conversely, Kayla and Sheena’s failure to both produce a standout photo as well as not portraying their brand well see them in the bottom two. The judges see more potential in Kayla and Sheena is sent home.
First call-out: Lisa D’amato
Bottom two: Kayla Ferrel & Sheena Sakai
Eliminated: Sheena Sakai
