This episode began with a session of press training, in which the final six contestants were taught how to deal with difficult interview questions and given pointers on how to improve. Danielle, who had previously refused to have the gap between her front teeth closed, changed her mind at Tyra's urging in order to attain a more "CoverGirl"-like smile. Before long, the contestants were told that they would be heading to Bangkok, Thailand for the remainder of the competition. Upon arriving in the city, they were given the assignment to pose hanging upside down from nets as mermaids over an open floating market. Though Joanie, Jade, and Danielle performed well on this difficult photoshoot, Sara's was considered mediocre and Furonda and Nnenna struggled to turn out a good shot, ultimately landing both of them in the bottom two. Nnenna was eliminated when her progress in the competition came to a stop and the judges felt she was slipping fast.
