America's Next Top Model Cycle 6 Episode 12
The remaining four contestants met designer Pichita Rucksajit, who sent them to four go-sees.
They were given 2,500 baht each to buy presents for the designers (to comply with Thai customs). The notorious traffic jam in Bangkok delayed all of them on their way back. When they finally finished, Rucksajit announced that because of their tardiness, they have disqualified themselves from the prizes (a line of Thai dresses), although it was announced Danielle would have been the challenge winner.
The Tyra Mail after the challenge says that they were going to Phuket. The next morning, Tyra came to visit them and told them the story about the the tsunami disaster on December 26, 2004.
The photo shoot of the week was sponsored by Ocean Pacific, Elle Girl and Amp'd Mobile. The head of these sponsors flew all the way to the beach in Phuket to watch the girls take pictures. To make them even more nervous, the photographer was Nigel Barker. After the photo shoot, they flew back to Bangkok.
At judging, Jade finally won the recognition of Nigel Barker who said her picture was great. Joanie's photo was praised as well. Danielle's pose in the picture was criticized because it was suitable for men's magazines but the client of this photo shoot was Elle Girl, a women's magazine. Also, her accent problem remained unsolved, which made the judges wonder if she really could be an articulate model for CoverGirl. In the end Sara was eliminated for not improving enough.

If it were up to me, I wouldn't have chose to ride in the took took, hoop hoop, poop poop, tut tut, hoop dee. Because, I would have had something with windows, something with doors.”— Jade Cole referring to a Thai cab
