America's Next Top Model College Edition: Cycle 19, Episode 5 :: The Girl Who Sings for Alicia Keys
This week on America's Next Top Model (Cycle 19, Episode 5), Alicia Keys surprises the girls at the Top Model house. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “The Girl Who Sings For Alicia Keys,” which aired on September 21, 2012, to discover what you missed.
Girls in Tears
There was a lot of tears this week on America’s Next Top Model, particularly from Leila, Brittany and especially from Laura, who was confronted with her fear of heights during this week’s photo shoot. A lot of the episode was centered around Laura’s falling out with Leila, and her new friendship with wicked witch Kristin.
Keep a Child Alive
For this week’s challenge, the girls walked in a fashion show for an HIV/AIDS charity called Keep a Child Alive. The girl with the most money raised through a silent auction would receive the challenge win, which included the usual points and scholarship money, along with tickets to see Alicia Keys in concert. Kiara raised the most money due to her energy on the catwalk and chose to bring Nastasia with her to the concert.
At their photo shoot, the girls traveled to West LA College to pose as cheerleaders, alongside several male cheerleaders. They were thrown into the air at which point they had to pose - not an easy task. After a poor performance at the challenge and her conflict in the house, Leila continued to unravel. Meanwhile, Allyssa accidentally kicked a male cheerleader in the head and Laura freaked out because of her fear of heights.
At panel, the judges praised Victoria and Yvonne for their quality photos. However, Leila and Brittany wound up in the bottom two. Because of the scoring system, Leila was sent home over half a point, which is shocking since she was an obvious front runner in the first three weeks of the competition. But it just goes to show how important it is for them not to let their relationships at the house affect their challenges and photo shoots.
