Episode Summary

The remaining girls were greeted by runway coach Joey Mead-King and runway trainer Adam Williams for a runway tutorial, then the girls were introduced to their challenge which is a fashion show for Singaporean designer Thomas Wee at the L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon located within Resorts World Sentosa. Although some of the girls improved their walk, Trang emerged victorious and won the reward challenge, which is a gown to be made especially for her by Thomas Wee and dinner with two friends at the L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon. She chose Aastha and Stephanie to join her in the dinner, upsetting Helena who was celebrating her birthday at that time.

Back at the house, tensions were flaring when the girls from the reward challenge return as the other girls are celebrating Helena's birthday. Some of the girls expressed that it was unfair for them to have Trang, who had prior modelling experience, to compete with them in the competition.

The photo shoot takes place at former Tanjong Pagar railway station, the girls worked in groups wearing Prada while portraying virtual princesses. The best group photo would have their photo featured as an editorial in Harper's Bazaar.

Trang's shoes dragged her down on her shoot, Jee and Stephanie both got bad critiques on their shoot, and Filantropi was told that she was the worst of the bunch. After the photo shoot, Monica received news that her father was ill and she had to go to him, which led to her withdrawal from the competition.

At panel, group 2 received the most praise, specifically Aastha and Sofia, while Trang received nice. In group 1, Helena shone while Filantropi was heavily critiqued. In group 3, Jessica received praise while Jee and Stephanie both received bad feedback. Although Rachel's picture received praise as well, she was taken out of the panel after collapsing to receive medical attention.

Ultimately, the second group won and their picture was chosen to be featured on Harpers Bazaar. Jee and Stephanie landed in the bottom two for their lackluster photographs, but Nadya then announced that no one would be going home since Monica had decided to leave the competition, sparing both girls from elimination.
