Tensions run high as Naomi and Anne V take a break from fighting with each other and turn the focus on critiquing Lydia — and that’s not all! The models learn how to walk and talk like a man in the latest episode — but not everyone can master the perfect masculine pose.
In the latest episode of The Face, the girls had to put away their smiles and scowl their eyes in a competition, testing their ability to come across as a male. Posing with their mentors in a series of three photographs, did the girls outshine the famous supermodels featured in the photos? And who came clean when asked about switching mentors? The episode definitely wasn’t short on drama!
‘The Face’ Season 2 Episode 6 Recap:
For the competition at hand, the models had to encompass a male persona and pose with their supermodel mentor in a series of photos that envisioned a believable love affair. The man in charge of judging the ladies on their performance was nonother than creative director of Elle, Joe Zee. What’s a competition without the fabulous prize? The winner of the competition would have their photo featured on Elle.com with a biography of the winning girls. With the help of famous drag queen RuPaul, it was time to suit up and compete. Anne V struggles to get some her modeltestants to commit to the story, making Anne the featured focus of the frame. Ray struggled to leave her femininity out of the photo, but it was Amanda’s tough facial expression that intimidated the client. Naomi’s team did amazing in this competition! Felisa and Afiya totally got into character and it showed in all the photos rewarding them with a win.
Team Lydia, once again, was headed for the elimination room — and this time Amanda was in the hot seat. After a very tough decision, Anne V sent in Khadisha because she has been stuck at a road block in the competition. Things got a little awkward in the elimination room when Naomi interrogated Amanda about Lydia’s mentoring skills, causing Amanda to admit she would prefer a different mentor!
Hopefully it doesn’t get beck to Lydia! Sadly, it was Khadisha who was eliminated from the competition. Was Naomi trying to get Anne V back for all the models she eliminated on her team when she was on her winning streak?
Let us know what you thought about the elimination and vote!
