It's go-sees week again – third time this cycle. At least this time they get a carrot at the end of the stick – a thousand Hong Kong dollars for every designer that wants to book them! Yes, please.
Challenge: Book that Go-See
The Good: Who here is surprised that Sophie booked all four go-sees? She definitely has a charming and likeable personality but more importantly I think what's appealing about her is that she is a well-rounded model, able to pull off just about any look.
The Bad: I swear the designer for Spy is a tad racist! All designers criticized Laura for her weak runway walk but even with that in mind he still said he would book her just because of her hair colour! Tsk tsk.
The Ugly: House of Siren had a very whimsical line and I especially loved the "Marie Antoinette" gowns the designer had Sophie put on. But what was absolutely ghastly was that weird gold bikini he made Annaliese wear! Would you want bananas hanging off your crotch and in your hair?
Photo Shoot: Dream Come True
The Good: This shoot was definitely the perfect fit for Sophie so it's no surprise she nailed it. I don't necessarily agree with the judges; I don't think she photographed older. I loved how fluid and graceful her pose was and I think looking like a fairy actually worked with the brief.
The Bad: I'm surprised Annaliese struggled as much as she did. If anyone was going to give Sophie a run for her money with this shoot it should have been her, for sure! Having said that, even though her photo was more commercial than high fashion, I thought she pulled off the "laugh pose" well.
The Ugly: When Laura started posing sexy, I cringed – it really was close to just missing a stripper pole. Considering how much she kept going off brief, I am mildly impressed she managed to pull off a good photo in the end. The ethereal and goddess-like look worked so she's very fortunate!
Judging: Final Two Revealed
I've been behind Team UK from the beginning and I've always supported the underdog so would have loved for it to have been between the two Brits. I suppose it's better and fairer this way, that it ends the way it started – US versus UK. So who do you think will be America's Next Top Model?
