America's Next Top Model Cycle 7 Episode 1

This season premiere was a special two-hour episode, which started off with the auditions.

A girl named Cyndel, who referred to herself as an entertainer and told the judges that she worked at a strip club said she considered that stripping "was another part of modeling." Anchal also stood out, principally because of her blue contacts. When asked why she had them in, she said that in India, they found girls with lighter eyes more beautiful. The 33 "semi-finalists" were reduced to 21 girls who would go onto the next round. The 21 girls participated in a nude photo shoot, of which the more conservative girls struggled between their ambition and upbringing. This episode also introduced Jaslene Gonzalez, the eventual winner of Cycle 8 who failed to make the final cut down to 13 but re-auditioned for the next season. Also, these pictures were used and shown (heads only) in this opening. (Note, Brooke and Anchal were the only girls not to have their pictures shown).
