They transformed male models into Shakespearean female characters.
Top two were Stevie & Meg,
with Meg wining the challenge.
Bottom two were Evan & Ricky
The only bona fide change was that after the first and after the second stages, every contestant was ranked. As they go, the tasks are weighted more heavily. So, someone could be worst on the first one, recover in the next stage and make a good showing overall. But, *how* much more weighted will the later challenges be? We don't find out.
The first of the three challenges: Create an exposure makeup, based on the model's attire (meaning the model was stranded in the desert or arctic.) They have two hours. Host McKenzie Westmore stresses that the judges want realism and visual impact. (Don't they *always* want visual impact?)
The second challenge is to paint models already sporting prosthetics. Again, it is stressed for them to "keep it real." They have two hours.
1. Nora • 2. Jordan • 3. Scott
4. Meg • 5. Ben • 6. Jasmine
7. Evan • 8. Stevie • 9. Kevon

The third challenge is to create one lead and 2 background characters, and they choose models by number to find out whether they are to show angels, goblins or witches. This time they have four hours, and show their work on the reveal stage. Only the winner is identified, the other positions are not shown. Yes, ugh.
