America's Next Top Model: Guys & Girls 2 eliminated Shei Phan from the competition during The CW's Friday night broadcast of the 21st season's twelfth episode.
Shei, a 5'9 1/4" 23-year-old from Oklahoma City, OK, landed in the bottom two alongside Lenox Tillman, a 5'9 1/2" 19-year-old from Newnan, GA. The two female models landed at the bottom of the pack based on their total combined scores from the challenge, judges and social media.
The week's challenge required the models to act in a skit with a professional male or female actor from the show "Emergency Couple" at Seoul Tower. The contestants had to memorize lines and look like models while pretending to meet someone whom they've been dating online for the first time in person. That person ended up being someone unexpected.
The winner of the challenge received $1,000 worth of sunglasses, and that person was, once again, Keith Carlos, a 6'1" 26-year-old from Bridgeport, CT.
For the photo shoot, the female models had to act like Marilyn Monroe and the male models had to pose as Elvis Presley. There was a performance aspect to this photo shoot, as the contestants had to also entertain a crowd while recreating certain iconic images.
Best photo of the week went to Adam Smith, a 5'10 1/4" 26-year-old from Memphis, TN. He received 29 out of 30 possible points from Top Model judges Kelly Cutrone, Tyra Banks and Miss J. Alexander. Adam also earned a score of seven from the challenge and a social media score of 5.8, totaling 41.8 points.
Runner-up for best photo in Tyra's call-out order was Keith with a total score of 39.2.
Following Keith was Will Jardell, a 6'4 3/4" 23-year-old from Nederland, TX, with 37.8 total points.
That left Shei and Lenox in the bottom two.
Shei earned a total score of 36.60 points. She received 22 points from the judges, eight points from the challenge, and a fan vote of 6.6 points.
Lenox's total score was 37.20 points. She racked in 24 points from the Top Model judges, six points from the challenge and a 7.2 fan-vote score.
Next week, the four finalists will walk in a fashion runway show for Lie Sang Bong.
