The Girls Who Hate Their Makeovers

First aired March 9, 2005

The fourteen contestants arrived at Paramount Pictures studios in Los Angeles with a New York movie setting. They began with Jay Manuel, the show's director of photography, where they met the judges, Nigel Barker, Janice Dickinson and Nolé Marin. The judges were dressed as the "fashion police" and introduced the contestants to their first photo shoot, Aliens In Manhattan. Many contestants impressed the judges, while Brandy complained about having to wait, which irked photographer Nigel.

After the shoot, the girls were driven to the luxurious house that would be their residence for the rest of the cycle. The next day, the girls scaled their weights and measures. After the realization of her weight gain, Brita became self-conscious. Soon after, they were sent to a coveted salon for makeovers. Keenyah complained throughout the process, as well as Brandy - she did not like her eyebrows bleached, out of fear that her boyfriend make not like it. The complaints irked both Mr. Jay and Tyra alike, affecting judging.

During the first judging, Kahlen, Naima, Tiffany, Tatiana, Brandy, Rebecca, Sarah, Noelle and Christina receive praise for their photos. Despite producing a stellar photograph, Keenyah was chastised for her poor attitude during makeovers. Brittany is criticized for her overtly sexual film. Brandy's bad attitude was frowned upon, and, despite a good photo, Brandy ended up in the bottom two with Brita. The latter was criticized for not being able to capture her beauty or mask her age in photos. In the end, Brita was eliminated because the judges thought that Brandy still had room for improvement.

The next day, they were brought to K-Mart for their reward challenge. They each had to pick an item to use while walking down the supermarket aisle, and the evaluation was elimination style. Rebecca won the challenge, and was rewarded with designer shoes by Stuart Weitzman, along with five friends. She picked Kahlen, Sarah, Noelle, Lluvy, and Naima to share her prize. The girls who didn't win the challenge had to serve the other girls while at the Stuart Weitzman store which caused a rift between the girls.

This week's photo shoot was for 1-800-Flowers, where the girls posed with a man in the background while controlling 10 dogs. Rebecca, Michelle, Keenyah, Lluvy, Tiffany and Tatiana all excelled while Brittany, Kahlen and Sarah had a hard time fitting the character. While Rebecca's photo was being evaluated, she experienced a relapse of her childhood heart condition and fainted. She was sent to the hospital, and everyone decided to continue on with judging and elimination. Keenyah was criticized for her poor appearance, but made up for her previous week's poor performance with a stellar photo. Tatiana, Tiffany and Michelle were all praised for beautiful photos, while Kahlen, Brittany and Sarah were criticized for their mediocre photos.

The Girl With The Worst Photo In History

First aired March 23, 2005

The girls were given a ballet lesson. After that, they went to dinner, where Tiffany drank too much and vomited. The next day, they talked with Beverly Johnson. Later, they were taken to a tennis court, where they were told that they were shooting various tennis shots for a big client. Unknown to them, this was actually a test to gauge their response to being under pressure. The "client" was actually an actor who was told to give the girls a hard time. Almost all the girls got frustrated, and Brandy later took out her irritation on Tatiana. After the shoot, Jay Manuel finally revealed that the photo shoot was a test, and Naima was crowned the winner for being the only one who stayed calm under pressure. She picked Kahlen and Tiffany to accompany her on her reward, which was dinner with tennis star Serena Williams. Naima was also given an autographed tennis racquet.

The Girl Who Is Contagious

First aired March 30, 2005

The theme for the week was makeup application, and Jay Manuel met the girls at an art studio, and introduced the task. They each had a limited amount of time to rush over to the various CoverGirl stations to apply makeup resembling "haute couture." Naima was the only one to fully grasp the concept, and won the challenge. She chose Christina and Lluvy to share in her prize of Lauren Scherr custom made handbags.

Noelle called her mother, describing Michelle's facial blemishes which would not go away. These were suggested to be a "deadly and contagious flesh eating bacteria that would cause certain death," which caused a wave of fear among the girls who had previously shared makeup with Michelle. The pandemonium continued all the way to the photo shoot, where the girls had to pose as different ethnicities while holding a child for a GOT MILK? ad, and Jay quickly sent Michelle for medical attention. The different ethnicities were as follows:

Model Ethnicity
Brittany African American
Christina East Indian
Kahlen Hawaiian
Keenyah Korean
Lluvy Swedish
Michelle Eskimo
Naima Icelandic
Noelle African
Rebecca Italian
Tatiana Biracial
Tiffany Native American
Michelle's blemish problem was revealed to be impetigo, a common bacterial skin infection usually caused by the same strain of bacteria that causes strep throat (Streptococcus pyogenes), and she began a course of topical antibiotic treatments. Because of the possible skin-to-skin contact with children, Michelle ended up posing with a doll, which caused some jealousy among the other contestants who had to pose with heavy, unwieldy children. However, Mr. Jay did recognize the fact that it was still hard for Michelle to pose, even with a doll, because the doll could not interact like a real human child.

At judging, the judges felt that Noelle didn't dress like a model in person (despite strong shots), and Lluvy just couldn't deliver a good picture, but Lluvy was spared despite a marshmallow facial expression without passion in their eyes.

  • First call-out: Rebecca Epley
  • Bottom two: Lluvy Gomez & Noelle Staggers

The Girl With The Deliciously Tacky Dance

First aired April 6, 2005

Tyra taught the girls about the business side of modeling, and introduced her parents. Tyra talked about the ins and outs of the industry, and warned the girls against signing a contract without reading or understanding it.

After this session, the girls were invited to a CoverGirl Cosmetics industry party, where they were given time to converse with guests and possibly gain contacts. Unknown to them, the party was a secret challenge to see who could leave the best impression. Keenyah won the challenge and chose Brittany to accompany her for a stay at a hotel and spa.

For the week's photo shoot, the girls had to pose at an old gas station while being blasted with cold rain and strong winds. Many girls succumbed to the surroundings. To add tension, another girl was added in the background of each model.

The Girl Who Pushes Tyra Over The Edge

First aired April 13, 2005

The girls were given scripts to read and memorize before having to act in a scene with Boris Kodjoe. While many girls flubbed their lines due to anxiety, Naima once again won the challenge. She picked Michelle and Tatiana to share in her prize, which was $10,000 worth of diamonds.

For the week's photo shoot, the girls modeled for Wonderbra while depicting a pillow fight scene in bed with male model Rib Hillis. Most of the girls were very excited. Some were more anxious. Kahlen revealed she never had a boyfriend and was freaked out that her ears turned red. But despite the awkwardness, she did fairly well. Michelle was having fun wrestling Rib on the mattress that Rib couldn't do too much movement. Rebecca, having a fiance back at home, pulled some sexy poses during the shoot but couldn't channel her emotions to really feel sensual and it showed. She felt the risk because her portfolio ranged from poor to fair and she was in bottom two last elimination. Yet this week had just rather gotten a bit worse. Tiffany stated that as time progresses, she didn't want to stay only to be ridiculed for her "ghetto" and "im-modelesque" background by things that are thrown at her in this competition anymore. She thought that maybe modeling was not the right path for her.

For this week's pre-evaluation test, the girls read a passage filled with fashion-related jargon, testing their improvisational skills as well as fashion knowledge ANTM TV. Brittany did the best, Tiffany did not even attempt the challenge, and gave up. She had doubted herself about this whole competition since last panel and was ready to go home. Tyra showed her disappointment in Tiffany, prompting another weak try from Tiffany before she gave up again. This negative response landed Tiffany in the bottom two with Rebecca, whose high fashion appeal pleased the panel, but had clearly struggled with the photo shoot. The judges felt that the girls had all lost their passion and drive and needed a wake up call. In the end, both Rebecca and Tiffany were eliminated when Tyra pulled out a blank photo, to the shock of all of the girls. This marked the first episode in the history of ANTM in which both girls in the bottom two were eliminated. Tiffany and Rebecca went over to the rest of the contestants to hug and say goodbye. Rebecca was very emotional, crying while hugging the girls, but Tiffany smiled and lightly joked, saying to them, "Why are you guys looking all sad for?" In the midst of all this, Tyra seemed to be becoming more and more irritated.

Tyra called Rebecca and Tiffany back. While she commended Rebecca on her emotion, she criticized Tiffany for her uncaring manner. When Tiffany started to explain in a combative manner, Tyra went mental and exploded at Tiffany, yelling at her to stop feeling like she'd got it more difficult than other people and take responsibility for her own actions. In 2009, this part of the episode was list #12 in Spike's "Top 12 Worst Celebrity Outbursts", concluding "This is how to dish up a serving of tough love.". Tyra then re-enacted this scene in Cycle 19.

The Girl Who Gets Bad News

First aired April 20, 2005

Tyra visited the girls to air out her grievances at last week's shocking elimination.The girls were taught how to conduct interviews. They were then put to the test as they interviewed rapper Eve. Christina was chosen as the winner because of her preparedness and clarity of speech, and won an exclusive interview on Entertainment Tonight.

Right before they left for the photo shoot, Kahlen received a message a friend of hers from high school had died. Shaken by this sudden news, Kahlen was further disturbed when it turned out that the next shoot would be at a cemetery, where the models portrayed the seven deadly sins while posing in a casket at the bottom of an eight foot grave. Jay Manuel learned of this and allowed Kahlen to opt out of the shoot, though it would affect her placement in the competition. After some consideration, Kahlen decided to go ahead, and was able to channel her depression into her "sin" - wrath. The models' portrayal of the seven sins were as follows:

Model Deadly Sin
Brittany Sloth
Christina Lust
Kahlen Wrath
Keenyah Gluttony
Michelle Pride
Naima Envy
Tatiana Greed
For the judging challenge this week, the panel posed as journalists asking the girls questions in a mock press conference for the America's Next Top Model clothing line. The judges found most of the girls let the judges get the better of them.

At panel, the judges were stunned by Kahlen's incredible photo and Tyra said it was clearly one of the best photo ever in the history of the show. Christina, Naima and Keenyah were also praised. Brittany looked scared at first but managed to be subtle and interesting in her final picture. Michelle and Tatiana produced bland shots, however, which landed them in the bottom two, Michelle for not knowing what to do and Tatiana for not being versatile. The judges felt that Michelle had more potential and desire to win and sent Tatiana home.

The Girls The Lionesses Are Hunting

First aired April 27, 2005

The girls were driven to an empty parking lot, where their challenge for the week required them to show their "wild side" and posed as animals. The girls were told that they were flying to Cape Town, South Africa. Since Brittany posed the best and had the best facial expressions, her enthusiasm won her the challenge.

Upon landing in South Africa, the girls were treated to a scenic safari ride that ended at a clearing. Brittany was then told that she could pick two friends to share in her prize and chose Christina and Keenyah. The three of them had a luxury accommodation at a hotel, while the other three had to rough it out in the wilderness. As Kahlen, Naima and Michelle bonded in their tents, Brittany, Christina and Keenyah had to deal with a bug infestation problem at their hotel.

For the week's photo shoot, the girls had to pose as animals in the South African safari with a crocodile for Lubriderm. Mr Jay told Christina that this was her best shoot to date and told Kahlen that once again that she excelled. Keenyah gained weight, which caused a problem during the photo shoot.

After the photo shoot, the girls arrived at Cape Town and they were stayed in a seaside hotel.

The judges were once again amazed with Kahlen and her portrayal of the springbok, the national animal of South Africa. Kahlen move like a chameleon achieving very good but not as sexy, They also were amazed with Christina's photo but said once again that she lacked personality in person while taking advantage of their traits to have your best bird drawing session must control her emotions but her features lips, Naima achieved amazing profile picture from head to toe posing as a silent killer but with one leg amputated similar to but with limbs taste, Brittany was to be aware of many things but she forgot his face still managed a photograph Fantastic and quiet in his face naturally sexy,.

The Girl Who Flops In The Mud

First aired May 4, 2005

For their challenge, the girls went on go-sees and met several important people in the fashion industry. Several made comments about Keenyah's weight problem, but in the end, she won the challenge and picked Brittany to accompany her to designer Craig Port's house. Naima was the only one who missed the 4:30 deadline, and got criticized for it, because she felt it was important to see everyone.

This episode revealed the first crack in Brittany and Keenyah's seemingly solid friendship. Brittany unwittingly stole the show from Keenyah at Craig Port's party, getting drunk off many glasses of wine and ending the evening mimicking the doggy style sexual position with Craig Port while the other guests looked on and laughed. Keenyah regretted bringing Brittany along.

For this week's photo shoot, the girls were taken deep into the South African jungle, and they stopped at a picturesque waterfall for their shoot. They had to make their own outfits from their surroundings, including leaves and mud. Brittany flopped around in mud to make her outfit.

At judging, the girls were told to critique each other's photos, and state who they felt had the most and least amount of potential, Kahlen receiving most praise and Christina the least. Kahlen and Naima amazed the judges with their acute fashion-based analysis,Naima achieving the first called by its good reviews and comments very knowledgeable about fashion despite not having a good photo whose facial expression seems bloodless and horrendous in his photography, Keenyah won second photo call for a weak body but fabulous face but not high fashion, but was rebuked by his self-Kahlen achieving the third call to wear a lot of photography with angelic face and ethereal but its first session seemed lost and sensual to be the worst job of shots but surprised the judges for his profound vision of fashion, while Brittany's despite producing a photograph absolutely fabulous with great body language and magazine where women want and men want a sexy pump reflected as a young Janice comments lacked insight, landing her in the bottom two with Christina who achieved a photo of poor posture and lack of luster and collagen in their lips, ankle and even stooped position sensitivity in the face, found herself in the bottom two for the first time because although Tyra referred to Christina as "the girl with a heart of an angel," the judges found her persona "icy cold." Her inability to mask this in front of the panel got her eliminated.

The Girl Who Is Special

First aired May 11, 2005

The reward challenge this week required the contestants to learn the traditional South African dance and performed it in front of a live audience. Keenyah told the South African dancers that she felt like she was "home," and that she had much more of a connection with South Africa since she was the only black girl, which Naima took offense to as she was half-black. Naima got her fourth challenge win of the season, and won 30 extra frames for the photo shoot. She was allowed to pick friends to share with her the reward of extra frames, and Kahlen was strategically left out due to Naima perceiving her as the biggest threat.

The girls were brought to Robben Island and see Nelson Mandela's cell afterwards. Keenyah, who felt a connection with her roots in Africa, and hearing of Mandela's ordeal for democracy, cried, even though she knew nothing about Mandela. This irked the girls, most notably Brittany, who was irritated that Keenyah whined to her how great Mandela was but did not even know whether he was alive or dead. At the prison, the guide passed a key to Naima to open the cell, which upset Keenyah because she thought that it was her "birthright." The bad air was cleared momentarily as the final four soaked in the history of the location.

After this, the girls were brought to Mandela's residence, where they listened to Mandela's advice and philosophy.

For the photo shoot, the girls posed while dancing with male models. Naima excelled,Brittany did well despite Mr. Jay saying her arms were in the wrong but Keenyah got disturbed when her male model touched her and grunted in her ear, and confronted him after the shoot. Kahlen, who up until now was producing stellar photos, had her worst photo shoot ever, and admitted that she still wasn't comfortable "being sexy." On the drive back, Keenyah complained about the incident with the male model. The girls, already irritated by her actions throughout the day, ignored her. When she touched on the subject about the cell, Brittany finally let loose and gave Keenyah a severe verbal lashing.

This confrontation took its toll on Brittany, who landed in the bottom two for her dwindling personality with Naima, for her stifled personality, despite both having great pictures. In the end, the judges felt that Brittany's defeated demeanor was too obvious to ignore and she was eliminated.

What The Girls Did That You've Never Seen Before

First aired May 17, 2005

This was the recap episode of the cycle, which aired one day before the finale. Never before seen footage included Christina and Naima being "passionate" along with Kahlen's, Christina's and Brittany's moms coming to visit and some indoor roughhousing.

The Girl Who Walks On Water

First aired May 18, 2005

The final three met Jay Manuel and shot a commercial and print ad for CoverGirl. Naima was the first selected for the final two. Kahlen produced what was deemed to be a stunning CoverGirl shot, but her performance in the commercial was moderate. Keenyah, on the other hand, had a decent commercial and photo. Keenyah was eliminated.

  • Eliminated: Keenyah Hill
For their final runway walk, the girls met Ms. J at a runway partially submerged underwater and were given a course about how to stomp on water. At night, the show began as Kahlen and Naima emerged from behind a waterfall and strutted down the runway together with a bevy of other models. The judges were torn between the high fashion appeal of Kahlen and Naima's commercial appeal. While they felt Kahlen's pictures had been consistently stronger, Naima was solid in her final runway assessment and did own it. Tyra compared Kahlen to a girl who "did amazing all semester, but kinda failed the final exams," and Naima to a girl who "did fair during the semester, and killed the final exams."

The girls were called back into panel where it was then announced that Naima was the fourth winner of America's Next Top Model.
