[via press release from UPN]

JAYLA ELIMINATED FROM UPN'S "AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL"

Jayla, a delivery driver from Tucson, Ariz., became the tenth girl eliminated from the fifth cycle of UPN's hit series AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL, reducing the pool from four girls to the final three.

Directed to use their own clothing to create looks of preppy, punk, mod and Bollywood, the girls met with Barney's New York Creative Director Simon Doonan who critiqued each girl's interpretation of the style they were asked to portray. Jayla was disheartened to learn she didn't capture the "punk" essence. "As a punk, Jayla is a complete disaster," Doonan noted. Then, Twiggy arrived to teach the girls about British fashion trends and sent each on a series of go-sees with top fashion designers in London.

Using the information they learned about British fashion, the girls shopped for new outfits to wear at each of their meetings. During the go-sees, the girls were evaluated on their recent photos and knowledge of each designer's individual style, but Jayla's style choices and lack of preparation didn't leave much of an impression at her meetings. "I can't believe that Jayla, as a professional model, wouldn't bring her own high-heels," said designer Ashley Isham.

The next day, the girls were excited to find that Nigel Barker would photograph their Bollywood-inspired photo shoot, where they were challenged to stand out from the other models in the picture. While most of the participants received praises for their effort, Jay Manuel became frustrated with the lack of expression on Jayla's face. "I don't think you can honestly step out into that world with that one expression," he said.

During this week's elimination ceremony, the girls were asked to create a modern look using a traditional Sari wrap. Jayla's lackluster look caused the judges further disappointment. They agreed that although she is beautiful, her personality and energy had dwindled. "You don't believe in yourself. We see the doubt when you walk in," Tyra said to Jayla before eliminating her from the competition.

The winner of UPN's AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL will have the opportunity to be managed by Ford Models. She will also receive a $100,000 contract with cosmetics giant CoverGirl. The winner will additionally appear in a fashion spread in Elle magazine and on the cover of ELLEgirl magazine.

The fifth installment of UPN's hit dramality series AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL follows 13 young women as they attempt to prove they have what it takes to make it in the high-stress, high-stakes world of modeling. Banks, who created the show, also serves as executive producer along with Ken Mok ("Making the Band") and Anthony Dominici ("The Amazing Race").

AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL airs Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on UPN. For more information about AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL log on to www.upn.com.
