Episode 9: For Those About to Walk, We Salute You (airing 4/16/08 )
THE MODELS HIT THE RED CARPET Paulina drops by the loft to surprise the girls with tips on how to behave during press interviews and while attending public events. The girls are dressed by designer Jay Godfrey and must mingle with fashion world VIPs at a cocktail party. One girl breaks down when she realizes she lost her travel document and learns she may not be able to accompany the remaining girls to the secret overseas location.
My commentary on this episode here.

Episode 10: Viva Italia! (airing 4/23/08 )
The remaining models head off to their international destination, Italy, where they are faced with the challenging task of filming a commercial in Italian.
My commentary on this episode here.

Episode 11: We Are Spartans! (airing 4/30/08 )
The models learn Gladiator-style fighting with swords. Later, they are photographed by Tyra in an old Roman castle, where one of the girls leaves Tyra startled with her beauty.
Because cycle 7’s bullfighting shoot and cycle 9’s shoot as Chinese warriors defending the Great Wall against Mongol invaders weren’t enough… now ANTM is re-doing the same concept… Gladiator-style!  I think that Tyra really needs to go back to Western Civilizations 101, because gladiators didn’t fight in castles… they fought in arenas such as the Colosseum.  I guess Tyra & Co. couldn’t book the actual Colosseum?  Or perhaps — as many things tend to go in ANTM history — the training/challenge doesn’t really have anything to do with the photo shoot at all.  (Anyone remember learning how to participate in a traditional tea ceremony in China?)
