This week on America’s Next Top Model Cycle 17, tempers flare as many of the girls push Bianca’s buttons. Episode 5, featuring guest judge La Toya Jackson, aired on Oct 12, 2011.

Cat Fight

Bianca was always known for being a little too outspoken on Cycle 9 of ANTM. And this all-star cycle is no different. The over-the-top Lisa and the religious Shannon got under her skin this episode, which led to a bad performance on the runway and an unimpressive photo.

The Kardashian Kollection

For their challenge, the girls participated in a fashion show for the Kardashian sisters’ new clothing line. But instead of walking on a typical runway, the girls had to hop on and off of a moving carousel! No one fell or twisted their ankles, but few made smooth transitions. In the end, the Kardashian’s awarded both Bre and Lisa with a head-to-toe outfit from their line.

Michael Jackson Montage

Before their photo shoot, the models received a surprise visit from their guest judge La Toya Jackson. She helped them get into the mindset of her brother, Michael Jackson, in order to create a montage of his styles throughout his career.


Angelea, who won best photo last week and loves everything about the Jackson family, surprisingly struggled with her shoot. She didn’t turn out a good photo, which landed her next to Lisa in the bottom two. It was up to La Toya to choose the photo order from best to worst. Laura received best photo for the first time this season. But when it came time to eliminate one of the contestants, La Toya decided that that’s not what Michael would have wanted. So everyone was safe this week.
