A question I get asked a lot is: "What's been your favorite moment of the show?" Well guys, you just watched it. ANTM flew all of our mothers to L.A.—paid for their flight, hotel, and spending money—for a full week. My mother basically got a week of paid vacation. I'm really happy and thankful for that. Thanks, ANTM! Seriously.
(And, for the record, a piece of dust actually flew in my eye a lot during this episode!)
So, at this point in the show, I'm feeling great. There's four of us left, I'm killing my shoots, and I'm really starting to show what I’ve learned on camera. I believe that's the biggest thing the judges are looking for.
Now, about Chrissy Teigen. Chrissy, Chrissy, Chrissy.
She is such a cool woman. She's beautiful, smart, and an excellent chef. The food that night was unbelievable. We got a chance to sit back for a few hours and just enjoy each other's company and take our minds off of the competition. Chrissy also shared with us her journey as a model and gave us some really useful advice. Thanks, Chrissy!
Aside from the challenge where I pitched my clothing brand, TOCKS (which will be available soon!), this NYLON Magazine challenge was very fun and definitely one my favorite challenges we’ve done on the show because of how real it was. We were watching Yu Tsai literally grab complete strangers off the street and ask them which magazine they would buy.
Nyle's beautiful, big, blue eyes got the most attention and he ended up taking the challenge win. And at this point, all of us models realized that challenges are key in this competition. If you win a challenge, you're not guaranteed to be safe, but your odds of staying another week are really good.
