In the end, Lucy Demalleur wins, being the second 16-year old winner, as the first one was Violetta Dubois in cycle 1. Back at the house, Ke'ai shows off her Gwiyomi skills, because obviously every Asian alive is forced to know the Gwiyomi dance.

The girls travel to Nassau, the Bahamas and get on Tyra's sexual, square, child-friendly and perfect yacht. The girls are happily surprised when they found out they were gonna stay the night out at sea, well everyone but Uaui who follows Tyra to a nearby hotel.
The next morning the girls are awaken by the boat suddenly being moved by Tyra, and they are all called onto the deck where they then do photo ads for a bronzer by Sephora. Uaui has a hard time keeping her food in her stomach, and eventually asks to get her ashore. Tyra parks her sexual, square, child-friendly and perfect yacht at a nearby port on a smaller island and Lilith and Ghaissani get off with Uaui. A while later they take a quick boatride to get to the main island. They get taken to their new home, which Lilith and Jenah agrees is a little cheaper than their previous homes. Uaui heads to bed, and Ghaissani is worried about her. Ghaissani asks Uaui if she wants anything to which Uaui replies with a no.
The next day, Tyra take the girls scuba diving, but Uaui decides to stay at home. When the girls return they find that Uaui is missing and meet with Henric Plokminu, the producer of the show, who announces that Uaui's flu had gotten the better of her, and she had decided to leave the competition, thus no panel was held in this episode.

IMG and Coca-ColaEdit
Sophie is unfortunate enough to see a video message left by Ke'ai, in which she explains how Coca-Cola is called Coke in South Korea, and that she wants some Coke, though she mispronounces it as cock.
Later, Jenah, Lilith and Sophie go to a store to buy a gift for Ghaissani, aswell as ingredients for a key lime pie which Lilith bakes, as Ghaissani's 18th birthday is coming up the next day. The pie is a huge success, but Tyra has to interrupt the pie eating to take the girls to their next challenge, which is to impress an IMG casting agent. Polaroids are taken of the girls, after they have the chance to introduce themselves to the casting agent. In the end, Sophie's body is too square, Lilith is both too short and too quiet, the agent loves Jenah's face, but thinks her hips are too big and that she lacks personality. Ghaissani's underweight worries the agent and Tyra. Everyone is also criticized for being too posey in their polaroids, but in the end, Ghaissani is crowned the casting agent's favourite.
