America's Next Top Model eliminated Devin Clark and determined Season 22's Top 4 finalists during Friday night's broadcast on The CW.
Devin, a 21-year-old 5'11 1/2" model from San Francisco, CA, was ousted from the competition after he received the lowest total score of all the contestants when combining their 1-10 photo shoot scores from Top Model judges Tyra Banks, Kelly Cutrone and Miss J Alexander as well as their 1-10 challenge score.
Devin was disappointed in himself, especially because he wanted to knock Mikey out of the running, but he learned a lot about his potential. Tyra Banks taught Devin that there's a lot more to his face than being a character.
This week's challenge began with Kelly delivering supplies to the models at their house to prepare for their upcoming business pitches. The models had to come up with an idea and then execute a presentation in front of judges who included Alli Webb, the CEO of Dry Bar, and Marie-Pier St-Hilaire, the CEO of AFI Expertise.
The winner of the challenged ended up being Mikey, who received $2500 to start his own business after coming up with a "Tocks" idea, which was a line of tank tops and sock. The judges appreciated his authenticity.
For the "Night Creatures" photo shoot, the Top 5 contestants were required to camp overnight in the woods and then turn "fear into fashion," according to Yu Tsai. The models went into the woods and had to model in the dark while only a light bulb flashed every three seconds.
Devin had difficulty staying on the box, while it was tough for Nyle to follow direction since he can't hear and his other senses were basically wiped out. Nyle therefore wasn't prepared for when the flashes went off.
At judging panel, Mikey won best photo with the following scores: 8.5 from Miss J, 9.8 from Tyra, 9.2 from Kelly, and a 10 challenge score. His total was 37.5 points.
Following Mikey, Tyra's call-out order was Mame with 34 points and then Lacey with 33.9 points -- leaving Devin and Nyle in the bottom two.
Nyle earned a total of 33.0 points after receiving 7.9 points from Miss J, 9.0 points from Tyra, 8.1 points from Kelly, and a challenge score of 8.0.
Devin racked in a total of 29.1 points. He earned a 7.5 from Miss J, an 8.9 from Tyra, a 6.7 from Kelly, and finally a 6.0 challenge score.
