'America’s Next Top Model' recap: Oh, that’s cold

Cycle 21 | Episode 7 | “The Guy Who Wears Heels” | Aired Oct 3, 2014

The models freeze up at their photo shoot while the drama heats up at home on this week’s America’s Next Top Model.

Kelly Cutrone welcomes the remaining 10 contestants to The CW headquarters to compete for a walk-on role on a scripted series, following in the footsteps of ANTM alumni such as Yaya Dacosta (Cycle 3) and Analeigh Tipton (Cycle 11).

The challenge: Perform a love scene, set in space, in front of network executives. The scene includes some silly made-up words, on which many of the models stumble, and a big smooch, which sets off the first of tonight’s fights. (Mirjana isn’t happy when snuggle-buddy Denzel practices a kiss with Shei, even though Mirjana chose Keith as her acting partner).

But it turns out Denzel—the challenge winner—finds Mirjana immature, and says he probably wouldn’t even date her in the real world. He also admits he’d have a better chance of winning if she went home … and then turns his negativity on Will.

“Like I came out here to get beat by a dude who wears heels?” Denzel says to Keith, complaining that Will isn’t manly enough to break a supposed stigma of femininity surrounding male models. Will overhears and flees into the comforting arms of his fellow contestants, who all agree that that’s a pretty jackass attitude—even Mirjana.

Will confides that this competition is the first time he can really be himself, and statements like the ones Denzel makes remind him how lonely he’s felt his whole life.

Despite the drama, Will kills it at the photo shoot, where photographer Franco Lacosta returns to shoot the “frostbitten beauties” as they pose on blocks of ice and in piles of frozen snow.

Denzel can’t overcome the cold and he bombs—though many of the other models struggle in the freezing conditions as well. (It’s so cold, in fact, that shoots are limited to a maximum of 20 minutes each, to avoid hypothermia. Safety first!)

Mirjana and Raelia get into it on the bus back from the shoot over some comments Mirjana made about her rival at the photo shoot (boy, that escalated quickly). Kari asks Denzel how he feels about his lady friend behaving in such an unbecoming manner, but he downplays their relationship.

Will rocks his six-inch patent leather heels at panel, prompting Tyra to ask why and, of course, to demand that the boys air their dirty laundry. Tyra insists that all male models should be proud of each other, gay or straight. She then compares Denzel’s comments to racial discrimination 50 years ago, and tosses out the n-word, for “shock factor.” Because, history lesson?

antm-week7_lenoxTyra and Kelly both give Lenox a “10”—the first double “10” of the cycle!—and she walks away this week’s winner, followed by Adam and Will.

In a reverse from last week, when the guys couldn’t quite perform, this week’s bottom three are all ladies: Shei, Kari, and Raelia. Kelly calls this Raelia’s worst photo so far, and Tyra gives her a “4.” But it’s enough to beat Kari, who just can’t find a way to use her odd beauty. “I think there is a dope-ass model in there,” Tyra says, “but she is just lost.”

antm-week7_kariI just pray Kari and Keith are cuddled up somewhere warm, watching ANTM and making their romance work in the real world.

Next Week: Kelly gets very loud, and Mirjana and Denzel passive-aggressively end their roommate romance.

America’s Next Top Model airs Fridays at 9/8C on The CW.
