Episode Summary

After the panel, the girls were given another Nadya Mail that sent them to Malacca. In Malacca, the girls were allowed to take a break from the exhausting competition, where they could shop, travel, and take a ride on a traditional Malaccan rickshaw. After that, the girls went to Majestic Hotel where they enjoyed an afternoon tea before going back to Kuala Lumpur.

The girls were then sent to a go-see challenge with the Harper's Bazaar Malaysia where they meet the editor-in-chief. Katarina was called first but the editor was not impressed with her catwalk. Jodilly followed next but she was somehow unsure of Jodilly's poses because they were too cliche. The editor was impressed with Marie and Sheena's portfolio and performance, the latter winning the challenge. She was awarded with a shopping spree of MAC Cosmetics worth $1,000. She shared her prize with the girls.

After the girls went home, they meet mentor Joey Mead King to have a conversation with former Pussycat Dolls member Ashley wherein she shared modelling tips to the girls. The next day, they were greeted by Swedish pop duo Icona Pop to introduce them to their next photo shoot for Harper's Bazaar. The photo shoot took place at the Chin Woo Stadium, where they then meet Kenneth Goh, the creative director for Harper's Bazaar Singapore. He was impressed with Jodilly and Katarina's performances during the shoot. While Sheena gained mixed to positive reactions from Kenneth and Mike, Marie was said to have a poor performance during the shoot.

At panel, the judges have acclaimed Katarina and Jodilly's shots while Marie and Sheena gained lukewarm reactions from the judges, saying that Marie failed to give her full potential despite having scored three first call outs and gave a forgettable shot. Meanwhile, Sheena was critiqued by Adam, who said that he saw the same facial expression every week and he starts to get bored with it.

Katarina earned her second first call-out from the competition, and she was followed by Jodilly. As expected, Sheena and Marie were placed in the bottom two. Marie, for not having presence during shoots and at panel and not following brief in the recent shoot, and Sheena for having too much pressure since she is Malaysian and many of them are watching her performance in the competition. Marie was shockingly sent home and Sheena was revealed to be the third and last finalist.
