This week's episode of America's Next Top Model is all about make-overs. Instead of making us wait a few eliminations for the always awesome make over episode, Tyra and Co. have cut right to the drama-filled dye jobs. This guarantees there will be at least: one make over meltdown, one awful weave, and at least two girls who should never go near a bottle of peroxide becoming platinum blonde. We're excited to see who Tyra waves her magic blonde wand over, though we are worried that she'll take the edge away from some of our favorite contestants if she turns them girl-next-door blonde.

After their make overs the girls have their first photo shoot with acclaimed fashion photographer, ANTM judge, and all-around sexy British man, Nigel Barker. As long as it means we hear Nigel barking some orders with that British accent, we are all for a Nigel photo shoot. However, we're also excited that Nigel is making the girls participate in the photo shoot beyond sitting and looking pretty. For this photo challenge, Nigel will make the contestants do their own lighting, which could be both hilarious and disastrous. While a model can make or break a photo-shoot, so can lighting--so the girls have two ways to succeed and fail at this challenge.

Beyond the make over and light-your-own-photo-shoot drama, it looks like the Evil African Queen Sandra will continue her reign as the most unlikable girl in the house. Just watch the video below to see what we mean:

Episode 3 of America's Next Top Model, "It's All About The Lighting," airs at 8pm Wednesday on the CW.
