The girls race against the clock as they meet with various fashion designers for a chance to book actual modeling jobs. The designers, who include Guess, Whitney Port, Charlotte Ronson, American Rag, Cecilia Cassini, and Lulu Guinness, can only book one girl, but each girl can book with more than one designer. The winner is the girl who books the most jobs. Then, the young ladies are hauled off to prison where they are made up as fifties-retro bad girls for a mug shot photo shoot with celebrity photographer Cobra Snake. At the end of the episode, Tyra brings back the eliminated contestants and reveals that one of them is about to re-enter the competition.
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.
