This week the special celebrity guest judge joining host Jazzmyne Robbins is none other than Amanda Steele.

She's a model, a social media star with nearly 3 million followers, and an actress on Hulu's "Freakish."

In this challenge, the competitors will tackle something very common among on-air personalities: Unboxing!

Unboxing = a basic rite of passage for beauty influencers.

The judges were excited to see how the finalists style came through in this challenge, and if they could make it seem natural and not too ~ad-like.~

The competitors were sent three items that they had to incorporate in their shoot: a flower garland, sunglasses, and makeup.

Let's kick things off with Enthony, who said he was going into this second challenge feeling a little more comfortable than the first.

As/Is

He totally went for an exotic, high-fashion mermaid look...and nailed it.

The judges loved the symmetry, the composition, and the lighting, They also thought the placement of the flower garland was super original.

Next up there was Rosie, who was getting some really strong wood nymph, fairy, and Grecian goddess vibes from the flower garland.

She used some of the makeup to draw on her arm, which looked SO COOL.

The judges loved the photo, but noticed the lighting was a bit too harsh, and they didn't feel like the sunglasses really fit into the whole look.

Jazzmyne said, "I feel like this is all very costume-y and then, 'here just some sunglasses'."

Let's move on to Divinity, who was really feeling some Grace Jones vibes with the blue makeup. Can you blame her?

As/Is

She even took her coat belt and wrapped it around her neck. Whaaaat?

The judges loved the lighting in the final photograph, they really dug the framing, and they loved how Divinity used the garland in her hair.

Amanda said, "I feel like she's so beautiful and I feel like if she toned it down a little bit then she would be more 'wow-ing'."

Then it was Victoria's turn, who won last week's #NoFilter competition. She was inspired by the blue makeup crayon to totally dye her hair that color.

Her biggest challenge with the items in the box was definitely the rose garland. So she did something totally unlikely and wrapped it around a hula hoop!

The judges liked that Victoria just went for it. They absolutely loved the aesthetic of her photos and even dug the fun weird lighting.

Amanda said, "Seeing these on her page would look really really great. Someone that's easy to click 'Follow'."

And lastly, there was Oso who was hella excited and went for a concept of a wild party.

Like when you look around after it's over and think: What the hell just happened?

The judges loved the photo but Jazzmyne thought the filter may have been a bit too warm. They loved his creativity and the angle of the shot.

They even liked that he just threw the garland up there. LOL! Jazzmyne said, "What I really like overall is that this is just, like, a vibe."

After narrowing it down to two, Jazzmyne and Amanda decided that Enthony's shot was literal artwork.

And even though both Divinity and Rosie appeared to have taken their photo at the same waterfall, the judges decided Divinity's was better.

They simply thought Rosie's outfit had looked a little too much like a costume.

He was ecstatic.

Unfortunately, Rosie's photo fell a little short and she won't be moving forward in this competition. But that doesn't mean she's not a super fierce badass.

Jazzmyne said, "This was a really hard decision for me. Not only have you inspired me but I'm sure you're going to be inspiring literally everybody."
