America's Next Top Model returns with another exciting edition of guys and girls competing to take home the coveted title. Potential contestants descend on Hollywood, while modeling swimwear and taking on crazy fans - and each other - as they vie for a spot in the competition. Host Tyra Banks, Miss J and fashion public relations maven Kelly Cutrone return to the judging panel with Yu Tsai returning as a photo shoot creative consultant.
Jonathan and Drew Scott ("Property Brothers") surprise the models by designing the cast house. One of the models breaks down and decides to leave the competition, while the remaining contestants participate in a semi-nude photo shoot in front of the public.
The remaining models must do a runway walk on shipping containers raised high above the ground and if they make it across, they will remain in the competition. Tyra guides the models in a photo shoot where they are bound together and the first contestant is eliminated.
As romance blooms between some of the models, a huge argument breaks out. The guys and girls are challenged to a photo shoot that will have no re-touching in the photos, which causes insecurity amongst some of the models.
The stress of the competition gets to some of the models, causing them to lose focus. The guys and girls are suspended in mid air for a photo shoot where they look possessed and a few of the models struggle.
The models struggle during an acting challenge, where a few don't take the task seriously. The guys and girls are tasked with pairing up for a sexy commercial at the beach, where jealousy runs rampant and some chemistry falls flat.
The models are tasked with creating a PSA in front of a harsh team of critics - kids. At the photo shoot, the guys and girls have to pose as life size dolls, and some of the models don't rise to the challenge.
Catch up on Cycle 22 with all new footage of behind-the-scenes confessions, flirtations and meltdowns among the guys and girls. Host Tyra Banks joins Miss J, Kelly Cutrone and photo shoot consultant Yu Tsai to monitor all the on-camera drama.
The models are challenged to create and pitch a unique business idea. During the photo shoot, the models have to pose in pitch black darkness of the woods, where they are freezing cold and cannot see anything.

The finalists shoot a campaign for Zappos Couture and prepare for the final runway show. Drama causes one of the models to lose focus when it is discovered she hooked up with another one of the models.
