It's makeover week and most of the models get a confidence boost (too much of one, in Amanda's case) from their new 'dos and (for Norelle) teeth. But, Camille's week is ruined by allegations that she has an eating disorder, which — once again — is left for the girls to deal with rather than a licensed professional.

Cycle 1, Episode 7: Robin's Jiggle Shimmy
We've arrived at the infamous nude shoot of Cycle One, when Robin and Shannon unite to stand down Satan (aka, Jay Manuel) and refuse to shoot naked (aka, with a skimpy band covering their lady parts). Honestly, we don't blame them, but we do judge them — because that's what this podcast is about!  Plus, a challenge that feels mysteriously like an escort situation as the models take four French men out for a night on the town — at least, Adrianne, Elyse and Shannon do. Robin's at Bible study. And, Alex and Danielle talk about how much they don't know about Jim Morrison, The Doors and why Adrianne wants to visit his grave.  Follow us on Instagram @topmodelrewind

Well, wherever Brad came from, Shannon's feeling things when he shows up at the models' lingerie photo shoot. We discuss their lukewarm flirtationship at length. Plus,  the girls go on a merry jaunt through Paris — or at least that's what Keese thinks it is. Really, it's go-see game time. Find this week's photos on Instagram: @topmodelrewind Also, we recorded this episode back in early June, so we touch on the Black Lives Matter protests for the first time.

It's an episode of surprising guest stars as the models get a visit from a suspicious publicist, a "working member of the press" who turns out to be #VanLifer, Elyse's famous boyfriend, and Adrianne's mom... who inexplicably calls her daughter Chewbacca.  You may notice some audio problems on Danielle's side.

Cycle One, Episode 4: Ebony's Greasegate
Alex and Danielle walk you through Ebony's no good, very bad week. First, she has to deal with immature models who don't clean (Giselle), then she has to fend off homophobes (Robin and Shannon). At the end, our girl can't even say "water" properly.  The models also have a "badonkadonk"-off and the camera guy gets a little too excited. Plus, the lamest video shoot ever! Enjoy the episode, but please also continue to donate to Black causes.

Cycle 1, Episode 3: Adrianne's Beefy Snake
Alex relives her childhood trauma as the models pose with snakes! Plus, the show's first round of makeovers, which are surprisingly tame. (But the girls complain anyway, of course). Nicole, meanwhile, deals with the worst boyfriend ever, and we check in on their current relationship status.  On a serious note, we hope this episode provides you with a brief mental break as the country comes to terms with its history of racial injustice. After you're done, please consider donating to your local bail fund or Black Lives Matter group. As a Louisville resident, may I (Danielle), recommend following this link: https://actionnetwork.org/fundraising/louisville-community-bail-fund/ And as always, you can find us on Instagram @topmodelrewind

Cycle 1, Episode 2: Elyse's Burn Book
The facade falls off and the girls go from being friendly to realizing that they're fundamentally different people and could never get along (as is the Top Model way). Specifically, Else gets snarky to camera about, well, everyone, and Ebony finds out that Robbynne thinks she's infested by demons.  Plus, the girls are surprisingly good at runway, and they pose for a... men's electronics magazine?  Follow us on Instagram @topmodelrewind. (We abandoned that blog idea.)

Cycle 1, Episode 1: Shannon's Leather Face
Alex and Danielle thought they were starting an America's Next Top Model recap podcast, but this show is unrecognizable! Where's the Tyra narcissism? Why aren't the Jays there? We don't know, but it's somehow... better? If you like what you hear in those ears, give us a review and subscribe.  Follow us on Instagram: @topmodelrewind Theme song and podcast art by Aaron Long.
