America's Next Top Model Cycle 1 Episode 9
The three finalists were evaluated by Kimora Lee Simmons and again by the judging panel to get booked for the finale runway show.
Shannon was called first while Elyse and Adrianne - a pair that had become close friends through the competition - were placed in the bottom two, and Elyse, the front-runner, was ousted because the judges felt her speech sometimes came across as careless and that she had not taken to heart the judges' credence in modeling being a profession that required both brains and beauty.
First call-out: Shannon Stewart
Bottom two: Adrianne Curry & Elyse Sewell
Eliminated: Elyse Sewell
Final two: Adrianne Curry & Shannon Stewart
America's Next Top Model: Adrianne Curry
