Welcome the Guys
It's the 10 year anniversary of ANTM, and to celebrate Tyra Banks and her co-judges decided to invite males to compete with the females for the title of America's Next Top Model. To narrow down the quarter-finalists, the competitors walked in a couture fashion show with a masquerade ball theme. A male and female competitor walked the runway together and kissed at the end - an interesting way to meet each other!
After the runway show, each contestants had an individual interview with the judges. All the sob stories came out, including a failed marriage at 18, a few homeless people, a trans-gender, and a young mom. Meanwhile, those in the waiting room were flirting and having a dance party. Looks like this will be a crazy season.
After the interviews, the judges made their first round of cuts to narrow down the competition to the 26 semi-finalists. The contestants spent the night in the Top Model house, spoke with Tyra and judge Rob Evans, and already the conflicts started to emerge. The next day, the contestants modeled in a photo shoot so that the judges could narrow the competition down to the 16 finalists, who would then walk in a Guess fashion show.
