Although it seemed like there would be an inherent advantage for the Brits who'd gone through the process once before, the finalists are pretty evenly split, with three Brits and two Americans still in the running to become America's Next Top Model.
The final six contestants have traveled to Macau--an island near Hong Kong, where they modeled silk Chinese gowns while accessorized with live silk worms. British models Catherine and Alisha were in the bottom two after failing to impress with their photos. Despite having earlier won the music video challenge (in a previous episode) Catherine was told to pack her bags.
Meet the top five models of Cycle 18 and find out who is most likely to be crowned America's next top model.
Annalese Dayes is a 24-year-old model from London, England who previously came in seventh on Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model's Cycle 5. On America's Next Top Model British Invasion Annalese has been in the bottom three three times, and has never been the first to receive a call out. She did come in 2nd during the silkworm photo.
With her track record, Annalese is unlikely to make it to the Top Model Cycle 18 finale.
Eboni Davis is an 18-year-old from Seattle, Washington. She has never been in the bottom two (although she was in the bottom four during a non-elimination episode). Eboni was the first called out in Episode 5, for her photo covered with maple syrup and leaves.
Eboni has mostly managed to stay in the middle of the pack so far, but will need to stand out to stay in the running to become Cycle 18's top model.
Alisha White is a 20-year-old British model from South London, England. Previously she was runner up on Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model's Cycle 6. On America's Next Top Model, Alisha has been in the bottom two twice. But she has also been the first called out twice, including for the Hello Kitty photoshoot, which featured outfits and accessories made of Hello Kitty products.
Her inconsistent performance record makes Alisha slightly less likely than fellow Brit Sophie to become the first British holder of the title America's next top model.
Sophie Sumner is a 21-year-old model from Oxford, England. She was the runner-up on Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model's Cycle 5. On America's Next Top Model Sophie has never been in the bottom two.
Although Sophie has been in the top three a total of six times, Sophie has only been the first called out once, when she earned raves for her photo from the challenge where models posed as art installations at a party.
Still, with all those top three showings, Sophie is likely to make it into the finale three on America's Next Top Model British Invasion and could easily take home the top prize.
Laura Lafrate is a twenty-year-old model from Scotia, New York who calls herself a "true" bisexual. On Top Model Laura has received the first call out twice (including for the silk worm photo shoot) and has never been in the bottom two. This makes her the most likely American to win Cycle 18.
Laura will likely make it to the finale, but can she keep Sophie or Alisha from beating her to the top spot?
