Original Airdate: June 10, 2003
The seven remaining contestants are challenged to polish their acting skills and collaborate to shoot a television commercial for Fresh Look contact lenses, in which some of the girls struggle. The reward challenge, a line-reading challenge is won by Robin, who takes Kesse and Shannon to get a spa treatment. The other girls are left to clean the apartment while the spa experts came to them and gave them their spa treatments in the apartment. Ebony is angry with Giselle after she exhibits laziness by not helping the others clean, and asks the masseur for an impromptu massage instead. The main source of drama in this episode revolves around a visit from Ebony's girlfriend, Ka. Although most of the girls are polite and introduce themselves, Shannon and Robin choose to stay in their room and read the Bible, which Ebony takes offense to. Adrianne is actually quite social with the duo, stating that she has many gay friends back home in Illinois. The photo shoot is for Fresh Look contact lenses. At panel, several girls are given harsh criticism for their performances. Adrianne is told that her accent is too strong, and that the judges can barely hear her. However, she is safe from the bottom two, where Giselle and Ebony find themselves. The panel says that although she has amazing model potential, Giselle needs to become more self-confident. However in a shocking elimination, Ebony, the early frontrunner to many of the girls, is eliminated due to her awkward performance in the commercial and that the judges feel she had a chip on her shoulder.
