tough poses—even tougher competition

“Wow!” is all I can say after watching this episode. A lot happened.

The top 22 have been selected, and everyone is ecstatic to have survived the brutal cut [from the first episode]. We were summoned to our beautiful new home, where we met the uber-talented (and super-hot) Property Brothers' Drew and Jonathan Scott. This house is decked out with a grand pool and Jacuzzi, a posing station (because who needs selfie sticks anymore?), a hockey table, crazy kitchen with all new appliances, and a full-on runway—yes, I said runway! Minus the Tyra suite, however, there are only two rooms. This setup is bound to create either conflict, romance, or both. There is definitely not enough space for 22 bodies!

Anyway, in classic ANTM fashion, we didn’t get a moment’s rest before we were thrown into our very first challenge! The Property Brothers explained that we’d be duking it out, yet again, in a full-out pose-off, to show off some of our skills; and that they will be judging alongside runway extraordinaire Miss J and the infamous Yu Tsai. The winner of this challenge would be rewarded keys to the still-unlocked Tyra Suite.
