America's Next Top Model: Episode 9.9, "The Girl Who Starts To Lose Her Cool" Recap
On tonight's episode of America's Next Top Model, the pressure of the competition started to get to one of the models.  The girls had to help create their own dress with the help of fashion design students and some couldn't handle having to speak in front of a group at the fashion show.  Dropped off in the middle of the desert, the models did a smoking hot photo shoot next to a burning car.  The girls found out about their international destination but one model's dream of going was cut short.

For their challenge, the girls headed to FIDM, or Fashion Institute of Design and Marketing.  There, they found out from Benny Ninja that they would have take a plain blue dress and turn it into something fabulous.  With the help of a fashion design student, they'd have to reinvent the dress to fit their personalities.  Neal Hamil, the director of Elite Model Management and Ann Shoket, editor-in-chief of Seventeen magazine served as judges for the fashion show. 

Right before they stepped onto the runway, Benny Ninja told the girls they would have to say a little something about their look and what inspired it.  Nerves overtook Heather and Lisa and neither could string more than a few words together at a time.  Neal and Amy ended up choosing Saleisha as the winner who got to participate in a photo shoot for her prize.  She brought Bianca and Lisa along for the trip.

Back at the house, the girls antagonized Heather, who ended up snapping after having a frustrating day.  Lisa and Saleisha stormed the shower when it was Heather's turn and she yelled at them, kicking them out.  Later, everyone sat her down to tell her that she needed to keep control over her emotions, despite being the ones who pushed her too far.

The models were brought to the desert to do a photo shoot in which they had to portray stranded models standing next to a burning car.  Heather seems distant and unfocused, turning in a very weak performance.  Ambreal and Lisa have a hard time not looking to "pose-y", as Jay puts it.  Bianca and Jenah get creative during their time with the camera and Bianca really steps up her game.

Right before elimination, Tyra announces to the girls that the final six left in the competition will head to China.  Sadly, one girl will have to go home first.  She calls Bianca's name first followed by Jenah, Saleisha, Chantal, and Heather.  With Lisa and Ambreal in the bottom two, Tyra decides to keep Lisa and eliminate Ambreal.  She didn't seem surprised by Tyra's decision and headed home, proud of what she did in the competition.

This week, Ambreal will talk to BuddyTV about her time on America's Next Top Model.  Don't miss it!
