At a shoot with photographer/judge Nigel Barker, the models wear fashions designed for Ford's 'Warriors in Pink' campaign and compete to appear in a national print ad. The winner also gets a huge surprise, and the shoot ends with an angry confrontation between two of the models. Next, Miss J. takes the models on a field trip to Universal Studios for a VIP tour, where they are joined by Jay Manuel for a shoot with photographer Miguel Starcevich and 'Gossip Girl' stylist Eric Damon. Daman joins the judges for an extra-dramatic panel, where one of the girls has a total meltdown.
Created by Tyra Banks, America's Next Top Model follows a group of young women of various backgrounds, shapes and sizes who live together in a loft and vie for a modeling contract.
The show exposes the transformation of everyday young women into potentially fierce supermodels, with participants facing weekly tests that determine who can make the cut. With mentoring by supermodel Tyra Banks and exposure to high-profile fashion-industry gurus, the finalists compete in a highly accelerated modeling boot camp - a crash course to supermodel fame.
