"America's Next Top Model Cycle 21" is about to air its final episode and its four finalists Adam Smith, Lenox Tillman, Will Jardell and Keith Carlos have shared their thoughts.
Smith said that at times, experience is not "all that matters" as "raw talent can come out of anywhere."
Carlos also said that it is necessary to be comfortable "in your own skin" and "with all kinds of designers and all kinds of clothing" and "to portray whatever character or theme that the stylist and photographer want you to portray."
For Tillman, "ANTM" is "not that bad" and "you'll get through it." She added that sometimes, it is inevitable for things to get tough but "just keep going" because it is worth it.
According to Jardell, one thing he learned from "ANTM" may sound like a cliché "but it breaks you down all the way to your core and then builds you back up with a new level of confidence."
During the penultimate episode, Smith won the best photo for the first time. When Tyra Banks called Carlos, who was runner-up for best photo, she said it was a good thing he won the challenge.
Jardell was called third leaving Tillman and Shei Phan in the bottom two until the latter was eliminated. Before leaving, Phan said she was rooting for Jardell and Tillman.
In the final episode, Smith, Carlos, Tillman and Jardell will be featured in a fashion show by Lie Sang Bong, who is dubbed as the "Alexander McQueen of South Korea," according to Movie News Guide.
The K-pop group 2NE1 also took to Facebook to promote their appearance on the finale of "ANTM Cycle 21."
"2NE1 kicks off the final runway show on America's Next Top Model Cycle 21 Finale on Dec 5th 8:00 PM (EST)/6th 10:00 AM (KST)," they wrote.
Recently, the 2NE1 girls CL, Minzy, Dara and Bom failed to win Best Female Group during the 2014 Mnet Asian Music Awards having lost to Girls' Generation by more than two million votes, Kpop Starz reported.
Meanwhile, "ANTM" producers are already looking for male and female aspiring models aged 18 to 27 to be part of the CW reality show's Cycle 22, Times Leader reported.
