America’s Next Top Model RECAP 10/18/13: Season 20 Episode 13 “The Girl Who Gets Kissed on an Elephant”


TGIF CDLers! Tonight on the CW Tyra Bank’s reality show AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL returns with a new episode called, “The Girl Who Gets Kissed on an Elephant.”  On tonight’s show one model struggles with the decision of whether or not to stay in the competition.  Did you watch last week’s episode? We did and we recapped it right here for you.

On last week’s show the guys and girls went to Bali, where they had to model swimwear while trying to walk under water and one of the guys suffered a panic attack. At a photo shoot at the local zoo, the models had to pose with snakes and leopards, where two of the models failed to perform out of fear of the animals.

On tonight’s show While in Bali, the models embrace the culture during an outdoor photo shoot, where one model in particular has a bad attitude that affects his performance. Two of the models lose sight of the goal to win the competition and instead focus on their affection for one another.

We will be live blogging America’s Next Top Model tonight with all the up-to-the-minute details at 9PM EST so make sure to come back to this spot and watch the show with us. While you wait for the recap hit the comments and let us know what you think of all the changes they have made to ANTM this season?

RECAP: In Bali, Indonesia the models arrive in a nice quiet room with candles and floor pillows, it is a quiet place to meditate. Nina is so excited still for having best photo. Tyra comes in to talk to everyone and tells them how much she loves Bali. Renee tells Tyra that she is so frustrated in the competition because she doesn’t want to hear she is beautiful, she wants to hear that she has best photo. Tyra asks Cory how he feels being the only gay contestant, he says that Tyra has been a huge influence in his life. Then Tyra asks Jeremy how he feels and he says he is still trying to learn how to use his body in a photo shoot.

Chris H. was mean to Nina and doesn’t defend herself; this angers the other models because they want her to stand up for herself. Marvin has a crush on Renee, Jeremy thinks it is funny that Marvin is all over her. Meanwhile, Chris H. doesn’t like Jeremy and the start arguing by the pool for nothing while Cory finds it amusing.

Today the theme is “green” to fit with nature. Oka is one of the top designers in Indonesia and Rafi, a protegee who is deaf and has a fashion line, he is eleven years old and both of them are the designers for this shoot.

Marvin is first at the shoot, Jez Smith is the photographer. Marvin hits it out of the park, Renee struggles with her eyes. Cory nailed the shot in five seconds, Jourdan falls into the nasty water that has cobra feces in it. Chris H. is bumped out before he even starts the shoot and it shows in his photo. Johnny doesn’t like that he is not connecting with Chris H. who tells Nina that he is really frustrated. Meanwhile Nina doesn’t want to help Chris H. because he doesn’t help her. On the shoot, Nina is having trouble focusing and Jex is concerned. Jeremy feels like he has a lot to prove.

Tyra has a surprise for the models, they are not going back to their room and there is no challenge this week. The models head to a beautiful place that has monkeys roaming around and they all receive special healing. The models then head to a room, they find their is only one bed, down below on the balcony there are elephants.

Jeremy tells everyone that the girls should get the bed; Cory says he is in with the girls. There are two pull out couches and Chris H. is having a little tantrum that he can’t have the bed.

The models go elephant riding and once again Chris H. is alone. Marvin seals a kiss with Renee and when everyone heads back to the room they find out that nobody is safe again.

Time for panel, the judges do their scoring; Tyra announces that two models are going home. Marvin is first; they love him, his score is 9,9,9. Renee gets good comments as well but not from everyone one, her score is 7,7,7. Jourdan gets told that she doesn’t look real but Tyra and the fans love it, her score is 9,7,10. Cory is told that he is absolutely beautiful, his score is 9,6,9. Nina gets told that she looks like a nesting doll and lost in the dress, her score is 6,6,8. Chris H. looks scared, he is told that he looks like a cross dresser, his score is 7,8,8. Jeremy is next and he is told he doesn’t look like a top model, but a commercial model, his score is 7,7,7. Time to add the social media scores and find out which two are going home.

The favorite photo this week is Jourdan, she has the highest score. Then it is Marvin, Cory and Renee. Jeremy, Nina and Chris H. are the last three and Nina is already crying. There is only one model out of the three that are staying. Chris H. and his bad attitude are staying; Nina and Jeremy are leaving.
