Be My Friend, Tyra!
First aired March 10, 2010
The fourteenth season began with 32 models vying for 13 spots. The contestants were asked to create a social networking-styled profile, MyFiercePage.com, including a profile photo and a video of their walk. Angelea, who failed to make the cut in Cycle 12, returned. A final picture required them to take inspiration from current and past top models. Gabrielle impressed Mr. Jay with her knowledge of the industry, while Tatianna was castigated for electing to emulate an actress (Megan Fox) rather than a model. When decision time dawned, Tyra revealed that only 12 had been selected, and they would travel to New York City where they would meet the thirteenth contestant. Upon arrival, they met Perez Hilton and began a tour of the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. Later, they were introduced to Ren, who had been scouted by Tyra and the production staff. Makeovers were administered shortly after. Brenda and Anslee was upset to have her hair cut short and Krista was unhappy that her hair was slicked back. Ren shocked all of them because she didn't shave her armpits. The girls moved into their house and disagreements erupted between Alasia, Anslee, Angelea, Brenda and Krista. They were then taken to their first photo shoot, where it was revealed that each would be posing nude aside from one article of clothing and continued until the following episode.
- Special guests: Sally Hershberger, Anastasia Izaard, Joanna Konjevod
First aired March 17, 2010
The girls were required to model only one article of clothing or accessory, which they were to select from a full-dressed mannequin. The girls' choices were:
|Model||Article Of Clothing|
At panel, Vogue Editor-at-Large André Leon Talley joined as a permanent judge. In the first judging, Jessica became the brightest star of the bunch, praised by the judges for creatively using her whole body to create a strong photo (Tyra was admittedly shocked, and called Jessica a "chameleon"). Angelea also impressed the judges by producing a very feminine shot, although in person she acted less than classy. Ren and Brenda impressed the judges with the fire in their eyes, while Simone's good skin was highly praised by the judges. Anslee successfully sold the clutch she had chosen, while Tatianna was complimented for smiling with her eyes. Raina was heavily praised by the judges for her photo, creating the look of a courtesan. Alexandra and Naduah both failed to produce an amazing photo; while Krista, Alasia and Gabrielle were deemed the worst of the worst, with Gabrielle's photo was called "forgettable". Tyra, Nigel and guest judge Sally Hershberger considered Alasia’s photo to be weak, although André believed it to be "raw and bold." Despite this, Alasia landed with Gabrielle in the bottom two. In the end, André's point of view regarding Alasia's photo won over the other judges, and Gabrielle was sent home.

The girls met Ms. J for a runway teach about pacing and removing coats while walking. They were then challenged to walk down a busy Manhattan intersection while practicing what they have just learned. The next day, the girls walked in a Rachel Roy fashion show at Lower Manhattan’s Surrogate's Courthouse, where they had to time their walks perfectly in order to avoid two swinging pendulums on the runway. Some girls struggled with their timing, most notably Alexandra—who tripped down the stairs, got knocked off the runway by a pendulum, injured her knee, and inadvertently tore her dress. Brenda won the challenge and got to keep her dress. Jessica, who was called first at the previous judging, also got to keep her dress. The week’s photo shoot required the girls to shine through wind and rain to advertise a fast-disappearing perfume. At panel, Raina, Krista, Anslee and Tatianna were deemed as the best. Nigel deemed Ren’s photo as an advertisement for swine flu, while Naduah’s classic, ad-style photograph was seen as contrary to her edgy look. In the end, it’s Naduah who was eliminated.
- First call-out: Raina Hein
- Bottom two: Naduah Rugely & Ren Vokes

First aired March 24, 2010
The girls rode a "Fab Bus" and received a surprise visit from Cycle 3 contestant Toccara Jones, who put their fashion knowledge to the test. The Blue Team consisting of Alexandra, Angelea, Jessica, Krista and Simone (together with Raina who joined them in their reward) won a $500 Bluefly gift certificate and the opportunity to audition for Bluefly’s Spring Collection. The Bluefly executives were most impressed by Simone’s go-see and she won the campaign and a $2500 gift certificate. Meanwhile, the losing team had to help take inventory in the Bluefly.com warehouse. This week’s photo shoot drew its inspiration from various dance genres. Alasia excelled, while Anslee, Brenda, Ren and Simone failed to find their rhythm.
At panel, Alasia’s outfit was unanimously lambasted, but her photo received universal applause. Upon receiving critique, Ren expressed her unhappiness because of all the drama happening in the house. With this, combined with her unsightly photograph, landed her in the bottom two with Brenda, who also have a weak photo and for still not embracing her makeover. Despite initially stating her desire to continue, Ren then revealed she wanted to check out from the competition because she just wanted to tell her mother what she feels about her. But this was not needed, as Tyra handed the last photo to Brenda, telling her that "another transformation" will take place.

America's Next Top Vampire
First aired March 31, 2010
Sally Hershberger visited the girls, and revealed that the "transformation" that Tyra announced last week is that Sally will be cutting Brenda's hair shorter, much to Brenda's dismay. The models were then taken to the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre to learn about improv. They were each given a scenario and a respective emotion to carry out the action in. Back at the house, Brenda received an edgier 80s-inspired cut similar to a faux-hawk, which Brenda found difficult to adjust to. During the haircut, a majority of the girls watched in interest and while most of them felt pity for Brenda, Angelea found the whole thing amusing, especially when Sally Hershberger used intimidating-looking clippers on the sides of Brenda's hair. The girls went to Times Square and received their challenge from the newest CoverGirl spokesmodel, Dania Ramirez, who instructed them to do voice-overs for a CoverGirl Clean commercial. None of the girls did well, except Tatianna, whose playful commercial allowed her personality to shine through, and she won a CoverGirl shoot for Seventeen Magazine and CoverGirl.com. The models posed as vampires in a bloody bathtub at the photo shoot. White-out contact lenses that they had to wear left them virtually blind. Although she found trouble and pain while putting on her lenses, Brenda did quite well at the shoot with her simple pose but haunting and sexy and the same time. The judges slated Anslee for giving excuses for her poor performances and in the end it was Simone and Anslee who landed in the bottom two, but Simone’s contrived posing in her photos sent her packing.
- First call-out: Alasia Ballard
- Bottom two: Anslee Payne-Franklin & Simone Lewis
- Eliminated: Simone Lewis

Smile and Pose
First aired April 7, 2010
The models received letters from home to cheer them up. The next day, they arrived at Roosevelt Island, where they were tasked to create chemistry between themselves and a male model, who turned out to be Nigel. Later, they met comedian Ross Matthews and their challenge required them to model with him and produce a good shot with only five frames. Jessica won and received a pair of $6500 Jude Frances diamond earrings as well as immunity at panel, while Alasia (who had the best photo the previous week) received a $5000 ring. The photo shoot took place at New York's Garment District – Canal Street, Chinatown. The girls were dressed up ala fashion faux pas to raise awareness about the detriment of counterfeit fashion products. Jessica, Angelea and Krista wowed Jay in their performance, while Alexandra’s confidence took a beating when she received mediocre feedback. At judging, Jessica received the most praise, as the judges were extremely impressed with her creativity in producing a great shot. Nigel also commented that every single part of her shot absolutely tells a story about fake, while Andre praised her ability to jumps, strike various poses, and make her face look great at the same time. Other girls also got some praise, including Angelea, Krista, Anslee, Brenda, Alasia, and Raina. Alexandra's dour picture landed her in the bottom two along with Tatianna, whose film from week to week was deemed weak, which made it difficult for Tyra to choose a best photo (despite having at least one great photo to show at panel). In the end, Tatianna was sent home due to her inability to consistently produce great photos without just lucking into them.

- Bottom two: Alexandra Underwood & Tatianna Kern

This episode was dedicated to the memory of Alexander McQueen.
New York Women!
First aired April 14, 2010
The girls visited Ann Shoket at the Seventeen Magazine headquarters, and Alasia’s insistence on taking a shower beforehand caused them to be late. Ann taught them about how to dress in order to flatter all kinds of body types. They were then given 5 minutes to dress themselves up, and as a surprise, all of them got to keep the outfits they chose. The next night, the girls were invited to Tinsley Mortimer’s launch party of her new line of handbags, and were given the opportunity to mingle with the guests as well as to have some one-on-one time with Tinsley. Jessica’s sunny personality and cute outfit impressed Tinsley the most and she won a photo shoot in Seventeen Magazine, which she shared with Brenda and Raina (since Jessica was first call-out at the previous judging, she got to choose two people instead of one). The photo shoot took place in the subway and at Grand Central – 42nd Street station, which was also their first CoverGirl assignment. The girls had to portray different facets of New York women.
|Alasia||Model on a go-see|
|Alexandra||Upper East Sider|
|Raina||East Village Rockabilliy|
At panel, Angelea finally received the first call-out, after three second call-outs. Krista and Anslee met with very positive reviews, while Alexandra and Raina was a bit criticized for being playing safe. André harshly criticized Jessica’s choice of shoes, and her combative responses displeased the judges. Alasia’s bad photo and lack of focus and Brenda’s lack of chemistry in front of the camera and looking old in her photos put them in the bottom two. In the end, a teary Alasia was saved again as Brenda was eliminated.

Big Hair Day
First aired April 21, 2010
The girls received a surprise visit from model Pat Cleveland and fashion designer Whitney Port, who dolled them up for a night out at Lucky Cheng’s drag queen cabaret. There, they met Ms. J, who introduced them to their runway challenge. Krista’s personality on the runway won the audience’s vote and she was declared the winner. She and Angelea won specially designed pieces from Whitney Port’s collection. While leaving for the photo shoot, the other girls finally had enough of Alasia's tardiness, and decided to leave her (with the elevator hanging up on Alasia, she resorted to use the stairs instead). The girls were split into two teams – Angelea, Anslee, Krista and Raina with their mentor Weaven Steven, and Alasia, Alexandra and Jessica with Derek J. They had to model in dresses made entirely out of hair, with the other team will try to distract them. Krista embodied Grace Jones and she produced a stellar film. Alexandra's performance was once again deemed lukewarm. At panel, a shepherd arrived with sheep, which led to the revelation that the final six girls would be going to New Zealand for the remainder of the competition. Krista is universally praised for her strong photo; Tyra commends her for her very strong film. Angelea and Raina were praised too, while Jessica was praised again for her ability to jump, move and make her face look great at the same time. Alasia's shot was deemed purely admirable, though she was criticized for playing safe in her film. Anslee was praised for her strong face in her shot but is slated for looking stiff, while Alexandra was castigated for her awkward pose and proportions in her photo. Krista's strong performance earned her the first call-out, and she won a surprise first-class ticket to New Zealand. Anslee and Alexandra ended up in the bottom two; Anslee for not modeling with her entire body, and Alexandra for seemingly lacking the desire to be in the competition. In the end, Anslee was sent packing as Alexandra joined the other five girls bound for New Zealand. After Anslee's elimination, Tyra allowed Krista to choose another girl to join her on her first-class flight; Krista chose Angelea.

Welcome to New Zealand
First aired April 28, 2010
After an exhausting 22-hour flight, the girls arrived in Auckland, then were taken to Mount Eden and greeted by a traditional Māori Haka, after which they were immediately sent for their go-sees challenge, with almost no time to prepare.

Alasia, Angelea and Krista received positive reviews from the designers, while Alexandra, Jessica and Raina received mixed feedback. Only Alexandra, Angelea and Jessica made it back on time, while Alasia, Krista and Raina were arriving late, with Angelea being deemed the best, having booked all six of her go-sees. She and Krista won an assortment of designer pieces. At their next photo shoot, the girls were challenged to wear the same black Lloyd Klein dress, and make the best out of that dress (with sheep as their background). At panel, when Angelea's photo was going to be discussed, she showed Tyra and the judges a "little club thingy". Krista showed up another powerful photo, but Alexandra's photo was deemed as one of the best in the History of America's Next Top Model and it won her the second best photo. Raina's photo was deemed as "told you thousands of tale" by Nigel, while Angelea's photo was criticized for showing the dress rather than herself. Ultimately Alasia and Jessica were called forward as the bottom two with Jessica for producing a poor photograph and Alasia for her lack of focus, but in the end it was Alasia who was sent home, and Jessica was spared from elimination.

Hobbits vs. Models
First aired May 5, 2010
Tension rose in the house when Angelea felt that her closest ally, Krista, was becoming closer to Alexandra than her. Jessica accidentally burnt a taco, setting the toaster on fire. The girls arrived in Matamata, at the “Hobbiton” movie set for The Lord of the Rings film trilogy and met actress Sarah McLeod, who introduced them to their photo shoot challenge – they only had five frames to pose at the doorway of the Hobbit House. Krista excelled, but it is the latter who won $3,000 worth of designer clothes. Tyra was the photographer for this week’s photo shoot, which required the girls to pose with shadows. Alexandra impressed by pushing through despite having a runny nose. Krista knowledge of her angles earned her a third consecutive first call-out, tying the record set by Joanie Dodds in Cycle 6. Tyra didn't feel enough enthusiasm coming from Raina, and she landed in the bottom two for the first time. But it was Jessica’s lack of high fashion ability which caused her to be eliminated.

- Bottom two: Jessica Serfaty & Raina Hein

André gave the girls a surprise visit to advise them about the fashion industry, as well as shed some light on his early career beginnings, including working for Andy Warhol. The girls packed up and flew for Queenstown, New Zealand for their next photo shoot, but were surprised when they hear Miss J’s voice over the PA instructing them to walk down the plane aisles as part of a runway challenge. Alexandra impressed the Jays by bringing heels on board the plane, but Krista ultimately won her fourth challenge. She was rewarded with $2000 worth of Boh Runga jewelry and the chance to walk at New Zealand Fashion Week. This week’s shoot required the girls to portray “ugly-pretty”. All the girls found a certain degree of success, and their photos similarly received both praise and criticism from different judges. Krista’s outstanding photo earned her yet another first call-out. Alexandra's photo got all-loved by the judges. Raina was castigated for only doing well in higher-end shoots, but she is still looked "pretty-pretty" when they asked her to be "ugly-pretty", Angelea's photo was considered average and generally bad by all the judges. Tyra mentioned models from past cycles that have gone on to have successful careers such as Katarzyna, Fatima, Anya and Mollie Sue while talking about Angelea and where she would go when she went home. In the end, Tyra handed Raina the last photo, eliminating Alexandra and Angelea.

America's Next Top Model Is...
First aired May 12, 2010
The final two girls took a helicopter ride to an overnight stay at Hurakia Lodge on Rakino Island. Miss J. arrived and handed them their CoverGirl commercial scripts. The next day, the girls shot both their commercial and CoverGirl print ad. Krista blanked out during her commercial and was forced to use cue cards, but was praised for laughing off her mistakes instead of breaking down. Raina got her lines out without much fuss, but impressed to deliver believability. The next day, both girls impressed Nigel during their Seventeen magazine cover shoot. When they returned to the house, Tyra surprised them with visits from their families; they proceeded to take a “Top Model” family portrait. Krista struggles to find her vivacious personality while Raina impressed with her shoot. After this, the final two proceeded to the Auckland Museum for a rock and roll circus inspired Anna Sui fashion show. It was also revealed that the past 4 eliminated finalists – Alexandra, Angelea, Jessica and Alasia – would also be walking with them. After the show, Tyra had some one-on-one time with Krista and Raina, where both shared their motivations for winning. At the final judging, Raina’s walk was commended for being both commercial and high fashion at the same time, albeit slightly cheesy, whilst Krista’s smile and freshness were appreciated. Their CoverGirl print ads also received mixed reviews – Krista's showed a classic Covergirl look with a modern twist, while Raina’s stunning photo drew flak for failing to smile with her eyes. Only Raina's CoverGirl commercial fully to fully impressed. While discussing the final two’s overall portfolios throughout the season, the judges deemed Raina as a more sophisticated and edgy model who would do well on the runway, while Krista was the beauty model who would make waves internationally as a photo model. In the end, Krista was crowned the winner of the fourteenth cycle of America’s Next Top Model.
