They have thrity minutes to prepare make-up and get dressed in the correct clothes, which turns out to be confusing for April until Jenasica comes to her aid. Tyra remarks that is was a very poor start. The girls get settled at their loft and go out for a nice dinner at the Tavern on the Green. Camille was upset by the less then sophisicated behavior of some of the girls. The fashion shoot for the next day starts early and Jenascia is left behind when she slept through the alarm and no one woke her up.

Anna refuses to go nude and is tossed off the set by Nigel. At the elimination round, the judges look at the fashion show and photos of fashion shoot. Jenascia is told she is really too short and the lateness better never happen again. Anna is asked to explain her decision not to pose nude and gives a confusing answer to the judges.
