The next day the contestants went to a club where they met Johnny and a special guest, the editor of Nylon magazine, Marvin Scott Jarrett. He told the models that they would be doing a fashion show on a rotating platform. Mike received some tips from Johnny about his runway walk, since he had the worst walk in the competition. Backstage Johnny introduced the models to their stylists Ashton Michael and Kimberley Gordon, who were also going to judge their walks. Nina began to worry because she had sprained one of her ankles during casting week. She worried that she would be unable to participate in the challenge. Instead of backing out from the challenge, she tried wrapping her ankle to see if that would help with her walk without the risk of getting hurt. Chris H. comforted Nina and told her that she was very strong. During the show, Jourdan, Renee, Phil and Chris H. excelled. Jeremy and Mike struggled most, both Ashton and Kimberley agreed that they had been the worst. In the end, Jourdan was revealed to be the winner of the challenge. As a reward, she was allowed to keep her wardrobe from the show. She was also given the opportunity to make an appearance on Nylon TV. Back at the house the models were able to see their scores from the challenge. Mike and Jeremy had the lowest scores, which made Jeremy extremely worried.
The models went to their next photo shoot, where they would be posing in a trailer park with a Honey Boo Boo impersonator in groups. The models were allowed to choose their partners for the shoot, which left Jeremy, Kanani and Don to work as a trio.

Notably, the "British Invasion" season featured publicist Kelly Cutrone behind the judges' table. Tensions between Cutrone and British model Louise Watts simmered and then boiled over when the two clashed over Watts' running on the set. When Cutrone lit into her during a judging session, Watts decided she'd had enough and stormed out. Filmed outside next to a parked car, Watts was emotional, tearful and furious, declaring that if she ran into Watts on the street she'd "knock her out." Sure, the moment was full of the kind of high drama that viewers of reality TV lap up, but was that what viewers wanted from this show? 041b061a72
