Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ Brea's model for the Spotlight Challenge passed out and was taken to the hospital. She was given a new model to work with and was allowed to perform the same body painting on the new model. He was later superimposed over the photo taken of Matt's model and their backdrop.
  2. ^ Ian's model had a bad reaction to the makeup and left the reveal stage after judging.
  3. ^ Other animals provided to the contestants included a white rhinoceros and gray wolves
  4. ^ RJ's model had a bad reaction to the makeup and was replaced with a model who was unrelated to the models on his team.
  5. ^ One of the Greens was a fraternal triplet to the other two identicals.
  6. ^ Rayce's trio of makeups was the audience favorite, something that would be taken into consideration when the judges made their final decision.
