NEW YORK, NY – March 6, 2013 – At the halfway point in Oxygen Media’s highly buzzed about modeling competition series, “The Face” (Tuesday, March 5th at 9 PM ET/PT), the eight remaining supermodel hopefuls laid it all on the line in the dance-driven test shoot “Move it or Lose It” and spring lookbook challenge for Marshalls, America’s largest off-price retailer.
Supermodel Coach Coco Rocha sought rhythm, expression and control in movement as she led this week’s test shoot alongside well-known choreographer and dancer Salim Gauwloos. Ebony, from Team Karolina, made a comeback from last week’s elimination room and secured the win, proving her place in the competition. For the campaign, Marshalls superfan andcelebrity stylist Jen Rade, challenged the three teams to utilize the skills they learned from Salim to create a lookbook for an assortment of Marshalls designer spring dresses. Attitudes emerged as each team dressed to impress, but in the end Team Naomi won for the third week in a row. Back at the loft the mood quickly shifted as Sandra and Jocelyn’s feud reached a tipping point. Unable to see past their differences, Naomi stepped in as mediator and threatened to send one of her own girls packing. Meanwhile, Coco unwillingly selected Stephanie for the third time to stand up against Team Karolina’s Madeleine in the elimination room, Naomi chose to save Stephanie once again, and sent Madeleine packing.
Madeleine, 23, grew up with a close-knit family in Melbourne, Australia and was discovered at the age of 15. She has appeared in numerous print ads, runway shows and television commercials. Far from home, Madeleine hoped this competition would have launched her international career, but unfortunately, she was not selected to become “The Face.”
Next week on Tuesday, March 12th at 9 PM ET/PT, professional basketball player Amar’e Stoudemire makes an appearance demonstrating the art of chemistry with Naomi Campbell for a steamy commercial shoot for Christian Louboutin shoes. Spitfire Sandra compromises her position in the competition by storming off after Naomi critiques her performance. John Caplan, Founder and CEO of OpenSky.com, the social network site for shopping, joins as guest judge for the campaign challenge where each team has to create a personalized video sales pitch of a product they use. Once again, the coaches’ rivalry intensifies as Karolina incites the wrath of Naomi. Will Team Naomi be able to keep up their winning streak?
