The twelve all stars are reintroduced to the competition, and one another. It kicks off in downtown Los Angeles, where the girls meet at their new Top Model House. After a few brief moments of sizing up the competition, they are all shocked when they recieve a Sahvanha Mail about meeting with the judges. Later, at the challenge, it is announced that they will be interviewed by Tia Kipps, and will be reviewing comments made of them by the fans. Most girls handle this well, however Jemyma, Akinyi, and Eupheme struggle with the harsh criticism. However, Stella wins for her positive attitude and excitement to interact with the fans. After this is announced, Tia surprises the girls with a shocking twist: a thirteenth all star will be added to the cast, decided by fan vote. The all star, chosen out of five, was revealed to be Dao. But, before the girls can even react, Tia reveals there was a tie in the voting, and announces Amilna is joining the all star cast as well, making fourteen total all stars.
Back at the house, tensions begin to rise when comments made by Koyal and Jemyma rub the girls the wrong way. When Amory discusses with others about Jemyma's behaviour, however, Rosemary tells Jemyma of it. This sparks a slight argument between the three all stars, causing a rift in the house.
The next day, the girls wake up to a Sahvanha Mail about stepping out of the box. At the photoshoot, they find themselves in a boxing stadium, and are met by Il-hong, where she reveals that the photoshoot is them posing in the ring wearing lavish dresses, with two male models boxing in the background behind them.
At panel, the girls are re-introduced, or simply introduced for the Generation 2 girls, to Sahvanha. Amory and Dao are praised strongly for their photos, but it was Diane who snatched first call out for her strong performance in the challenge as well as her beautiful shot. Meanwhile, Cyllia found herself in hot water due to her disappointing photo, and found herself in the bottom two with Eupheme, who - though her photo was not bad - had little to no impact on the fans. Due to her inability to be remembered, Eupheme was sent home.
- First call-out: Diane Wings
- Bottom two: Cyllia Verada & Eupheme Stanton
- Eliminated: Eupheme Stanton
The night after the first elimination, the thirteen remaining all stars are discussing their week in the living room. Rosemary, annoyed about her appearance in the bottom two, complains to the girls, and in doing so she insults Eupheme. This upsets Diane, as she was a good friend with Eupheme, and it sparks an argument between the two girls.
Amilna confessional "There are so many season ten girls in this house, it's practically a reunion. I wouldn't mind seeing one of them go home... or all of them."
- First call-out: Animato Cullen
- Bottom two: Amilna Estavão & Ilona Ödön
- Eliminated: Amilna Estavão
The thirteen all stars return home after the first elimination and express their shock over Eupheme's elimination. The next day, a storm barracades the girls inside. They are left confused when no Sahvanha Mail comes, and are led to believe that the storm shorted out the wiring for the tv.
The next day, the thunderstorm has subsided, however the girls are still left without a Sahvanha Mail for a majority of the day, and the girls begin to speculate that there will be no photoshoot for the week. However, Il-hong and Danielle Ranier arrive at the house while the girls are having dinner and announce the girls will be involved in a Model-a-Thon, which is an overnight challenge of non-stop photoshoots.
Upon arriving in downtown Los Angeles, the girls are split into three groups. Il-hong explains that the girls will be toured around L.A. taking photos, individually and in groups. While the girls are being styled for their group photoshoot, Il-hong surprises the girls when she says the girl who performs the best out of each group wins immunity.

Meanwhile, the girls are all driven around downtown for their photoshoot. Many begin to become irritable over their lack of sleep, and begin bickering with one another. Daniella takes note of this and warns the girls to remain professional to avoid consequences at panel.
