For the first challenge, the girls put their fashion knowledge to the test with surprise guest and America's Next Top Model cycle 9 alum, Bianca Golden, along with guest judge and style guru, Freddie Leiba. Clad in school uniforms and sitting at desks, class was in full session as the model hopefuls competed to be the smartest fashion student.

Although Susan won the challenge, her sense of victory was short-lived after Treveen voiced harsh comments about Susan's performance during the competition.  Despite being visibly upset, she resolved not to let it affect her after speaking with Golden, who stopped by the model apartment to give the girls some sound advice.

For the final challenge, the finalists met up with creative director, Helen Pipins, and photographer and judge, Pedro Virgil, for a photo shoot amidst the Hanuman Murti. The model hopefuls were instructed to channel their devotion to winning the competition and evoke "posture, poise and personal growth" while wearing garments by the House of Jaipur.  Although Susan was given help by celebrity judge, Wendy, during the shoot, she made it clear that "this truly is anybody's game".

Back at deliberation, the judges went through the final four's photos from the challenge.  Although the judges remarked that the elimination would be tough, they were forced to make a determination based on the girls' progress overall.  Treveen was chosen for the best photo of the week while Susan and Trudy-Lee were called forward in the bottom two.  In Susan's instance, Wendy felt that her photos were strong, but still lacked more expression.  In Trudy-Lee's case, the consensus was that she was very graceful, but lacked consistently strong poses throughout photo shoots.

In the most unexpected and shocking turn of events CNTM has seen yet, both Susan and Trudy-Lee were eliminated. Only two finalists remain - Stephany and Treveen. Now, the two model hopefuls will have to compete with each other in the final weeks to determine who will become the first Caribbean's Next Top Model!

Tune in next week as we revisit CNTM's premiere season thus far.  Make sure to watch and decide who's got your vote to be on top!
