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 already begin to rise when comments made by Koyal and Jemyma rub the girls the wrong way. When comments are made by Animato about Koyal's behaviour, however, Rosemary tries to tell her, which thus leads Koyal, Jemyma, and Rosemary to bond as a trio, to the discontent of the rest of the girls.
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, Rosemary 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: Eupheme Stanton & Rosemary Phoenix
- Eliminated: Eupheme Stanton
The thirteen all stars return home after the first elimination and express their discontent of the fact that Rosemary was saved from elimination. Rosemary confronts the house of this, causing an argument to erupt between Rosemary and Amilna, which begins to divide the house.
The nex day, the girls wake up to find photographer Maicle Gambardella and Inner Model host Daniella Ranier in their living room. They announce that the girls are going to take part part of the first ever Model-a-thon in downtown Los Angeles. They will take part of a non-stop 24 hours of modelling and photoshoots. Rosemary, still agitated from the argument, makes her displeasure no secret, which again bothers the house.
Upon arriving in downtown L.A., Daniella reveals the first challenge of the Model-a-thon, which is idk! But the winner recieves immunity for it lol!
