America's Next Top Model: Guys & Girls 2 eliminated Raelia Lewis from the competition during The CW's Friday night broadcast of the 21st season's tenth episode.
Raelia, a 6'0 1/2" 22-year-old from Philadelphia, PA, landed in the bottom two alongside Chantelle Brown-Young, a 5'8 1/4" 19-year-old from Toronto, Canada. The two female models landed at the bottom of the pack based on their total combined scores from the challenge, judges and social media. This marked Raelia's second week in a row in the bottom two.
The week's challenge required the models to dance in teams to hip-hop music all the while trying to model for a street-fashion photographer. Everyone was judged individually on their ability to perform, and Raelia ended up winning the challenge.
For the photo shoot, the contestants modeled MCM clothes, which is a German luxury brand, for photographer Erik Asla at Seoul's city hall. The person to achieve best photo for the week would win an editorial in an international fashion magazine.
Best photo of the week went to Keith Carlos. He received a perfect score of 30 points from Top Model judges Tyra Banks, Kelly Cutrone and Miss J. Alexander. Keith also earned a score of nine from the challenge and a social media score of 7.4, totaling 46.4 points.
Runner-up for best photo in Tyra's call-out order was Will Jardell with a total score of 45.8.
Following Will was Lenox Tillman with 39.7 points, Shei Phan with 37.9 points, and Adam Smith with 36.2 points -- leaving Chantelle and Raelia in the bottom two.
Chantelle earned a total score of 35.8 points. She received 20 points from the judges, nine points from the challenge, and a fan vote of 6.8 points.
Raelia's total score was 35.4 points. She racked in 19 points from Top Model's judges, 10 points from the challenge and a 6.4 fan-vote score.
