Now that America’s Next Top Model Cycle 20 makeovers have happened, everyone is on an even playing field. However, the recent trend has been the guys trumping the girls — especially with Nina’s twisted ankle. Surprisingly, Episode 4 saw more drama from the guys than the girls, with fights erupting, dark and traumatic pasts revealed, bonding, and much more.
The stakes were higher this time around, too. Nylon Magazine Editor-in-Chief Marvin Scott Jarrett came to judge the runway competition, with the winner selected to show off his or her glowing personality on the magazine’s web series, Nylon TV. This wasn’t an easy challenge, though — the runway was spinning, and in turn, so were the contestants’ heads.
There were some meltdowns and mishaps at the show — including Marvin asking if Jeremy was trying to channel his inner Zoolander — and he and Mike had the lowest scores, tied with sixes.
From there, Johnny designs a “trailer park challenge” that feels a little like Honey Boo Boo with redneck and pageant cultures mixed. There were a lot of struggles for Jeremy and Mike again, and also Chris H. and Marvin. Their partners in turn have troubles too (especially Nina and her ankle problems), but in the end, nothing too crazy happened at the shoot.
During judging, Nina surprisingly did well, in spite of her injury. It also had to do with Phil being “made” for the photo, so hooray? Fans are apparently loving Jiana and Alexandra, yet not connecting with Renee, but all three ended up safe. On the flip side, Jeremy is doing fantastic on social media, but the judges weren’t thrilled. The same went for Don, though he apparently needs to buff up.
Ultimately, the girls had a better week and came out on top. Jourdan's photo was No. 1, with Nina in second. As expected, Jeremy and Mike were in the bottom two, and Mike was eliminated. Sigh, and just after he won last week! Guess he’s back to the ice cream truck now.
Are you shocked by this week’s elimination? Sound off below!
