Here is this weeks recap of KNTM Episodes 5 and 6. Unfortunately a few of the uploaded videos for episodes 5 and 6 have been taken down or made private so I won’t be able to include links or screen caps. It seems CJEM is probably taking down them down due to copyright issues so I suggest watching each episode as soon as its uploaded so you can catch it before it’s deleted.
For the first challenge the models had to style themselves for an out and about paparazzi-stalking-me style photo shoot,
1st Challenge Winner
Front runner Seung Soo won with his photo shoot idea of shielding his “girlfriend” Ye Lim. He received a goodie bag and got to choose one female model to give a gift bag to which he chose his partner Ye Lim.
2nd Challenge – Runway Fashion Show for M Brand 2014 F/W Collection
Right after that they went downstairs to find an open runway where their second challenge started with the weakest model being cut and sent home.
1 Model Cut
The bottom 3 came to Jung Jin, Hong Joon and Ha In with the latter going home. The judges felt she didn’t give off a model feel and her walk wasn’t good. In her defense she said she had sprained her ankle during the previous shoot which might have led to the issue with her walking.
For the main challenge the models had to work with big fans and learn how to control their outfit and expressions. The two missions were a Beauty Shot and Full Length Body Shot with Fans.
For this main challenge, the winner would have their photo featured in an eco-friendly clothing line magazine. Surprising two were chosen since both had outstanding photos. The winners were charming Seung Soo and graceful Ki Bbeum.
1 Model Cut
The bottom 2 came down to Ye Lim and Seung Hee. Though they felt Ye Lim lacks charm and isn’t able to captivate a photo 16 year old Seung Hee was sent home due to not showing potential as a model. Even with the sad ending, Seung Hee vowed to come back again so we might see her in the future!
The models start out the day by being woken up in their sleep with a bull horn. The result was mentor Hye Yun in the front room announcing the First Challenge, a Flexibility and Muscular Strength test. She explained since modeling can be exhausting, the contestants must keep up their endurance for the shoots.
With a life sized ruler, horizontal bar and protractor the models had to test their endurance.
First Challenge Winners
1st place went to Seung Soo, 2nd place my boo thang Jong Hoon and 3rd place Ki Bbeum. For their prize, each got to chose a model to be paired with for the next challenge. Seung Soo choice Yee Lim and Hong Joon chose Ki Bbeum.
For challenge 2 the models had to attempt 6 yoga poses for Couple AcroYoga.
It was quite hilarious to watch as the couples, some paired up better than others attempted difficult Yoga positions. Guy-Guy couple Yong Soo and Jung Jin had quite the time balancing on each other and made for much attractive seeing their attempt.
2nd Challenge Winners
All around amazing Seung Soo and Yerim took first place and was treated to a spa day at Aveda. Unfortunately the losers had to clean the house.
The Main Challenge was given by the fabulous Executive Producer herself, Tyra Banks. She expressed this was her favorite photo shoot from America’s Next Top Model but also one of the most difficult.
