Jess leaves Australia's Next Top Model after fashion shoot in Tokyo Japan

Australia’s Next Top Model Recap: Sayonara, Jess!

It’s getting down to the nitty gritty on Australia’s Next Top Model and the girls were sent to Tokyo to test how they would fare in a foreign environment. Let’s take a look at the highlights from their Lost in Translation adventure.

Bon Voyage: Luckily the girls actually knew that Tokyo was in Japan. After landing they had to do a shoot with a photographer who didn’t speak English. I kept waiting for Bill Murray to appear with a glass of whisky and say, “For relaxing times, make it Suntory times...”

Harajuku Girls: The contestants appeared on a TV show called Kawaii and were dressed in funky Japanese street style with themes like naughty school girl, fairy and babies. They were each assigned a fashion mentor and looked suitably ridiculous. But props to them for being good sports. Gwen Stefani would have been proud.

For more of my thoughts on the episode, keep reading.

Strike a Pose: Judge Jez showed up in Japan to shoot the girls in the middle of the city. Sophie and Jess struggled, while Amanda and Kelsey killed it. Strangely enough, the photo of Amanda that they selected during elimination wasn’t that great and she ended up in the bottom two, along with Jess.

Departure lounge: The competition is tough at this stage of the game and the judges need a model who can do it all. They thought Jess' look might not be commercial enough and said Amanda couldn’t afford to take a bad picture at this point.

Best line of the night: Charlotte Dawson describing Kelsey: Sexy, sultry—short-arse.

Sayonara, Sistah: Amanda got to stay and Jess was sent packing because her look was just a little too quirky. We've only two weeks until the live finale! Who's excited? Make sure you check out Fab and Bella for their thoughts on the Japan ep!
