Wednesday night in the model house was crazy because all the girls were working on their charisma skill to prepare for the skill challenge the following day. Let me tell you: seven models babbling to themselves in front of a mirror makes quite a racket!
Gabrielle was voted “Fan Favourite” and won a Multitab to help her in skill challenges. She listened to a charisma tabcast and played with a fluffy bunny toy while improving her skill!
In the morning, it was time for the skill challenge. Harley went into the office on the main floor and called each girl in, one at a time, for their skill evaluation. The models were each given 30 minutes to socialize with Harley and they were evaluated based on their relationship boost with him and their overall charisma skill level.
The models each deployed their own unique strategies during the skill challenge. Half an hour isn’t a lot of time for socializing, but most of the girls were able to initiate three or four social interactions during their skill evaluation.
Malala is a bit of a snob, so she started off her social time with Harley by bragging about her medical degree. After that, she only had enough time to ask him about his Alma Mater. Surprisingly enough, she did quite well in her skill evaluation–but who wouldn’t be impressed by a model wannabee who has a medical degree?
Gabrielle’s childish personality also came into play during her skill evaluation. She discussed fine cuisine with Harley and then spent the rest of her time goofing around with him. Harley loved it!
Karlie’s skill evaluation was also quite amusing. She’d been exercising a little while waiting for her turn, so she started off by enthusing about exercise. Then she noticed that Harley was a fellow jock, so she practiced the school cheer with him. Karlie scored the biggest relationship boost with Harley during the skill evaluation, but she only managed to raise her charisma skill to level 2, so she didn’t win the skill challenge.
Perhaps not surprising at all, the winner of the first skill challenge was Ariel. She started her skill evaluation by brightening Harley’s day, and she had just enough time to tell him a funny story.
After all the models had their 30 minutes with Harley, he announced that Ariel had won the charisma skill challenge. “Your reward is a special outing to a local hot spot,” Harley explained to Ariel. “Pick a friend to take with us, and then get dressed to go out.”
Ariel has been getting along with Jessica very well, so she invited Jessica to go out with her. The girls got all dolled up for their evening outing. They certainly looked like a couple of Iconic Models on their outing!
Harley took them to Bradford’s Bar & Grill to celebrate. It is just a dive bar, but Ariel and Jessica enjoyed being the best dressed patrons in the bar, and they had a lot of fun. Ariel decided to enjoy some karaoke after having a drink. Jessica joined her in an amusing duet. As they sang, Harley snapped a few photos and Ariel got a special photograph added to her portfolio because she won the first skill challenge in the Iconic Model Challenge.
Next time in the Iconic Model Challenge, the girls will have their final photo shoot of the week, and their best photos taken this week will be presented for voting. You will have a chance to vote for the first model to be eliminated from the competition and kicked out of the model house, plus voting will earn you an entry in the weekly giveaway and the grand prize draw! Stay tuned for another episode of the Iconic Model Challenge this Friday.
