Did I mention they can only use their phones?

Oh, and it's hosted by our very own fabulous Jazzmyne Robbins.

After each challenge, she and a celebrity guest host will determine which contestant has the best photo, and who's will no longer be in the competition.

This week's celebrity judge is none other than Ashley Nell Tipton, the winner of Project Runway Season 14.

Ashley is also a design consultant, and has her own apparel, eyewear, and jewelry line.

For the very first challenge, the six contestants were asked to shoot a photo of themselves with absolutely no filter.

They judged the photos based on three factors: composition, "bring it" factor, and feedworthy-ness.

First up was Divinity, who's a self-described filter queen, but was excited for this challenge because it allowed her to be vulnerable and show her imperfections.

She said, "It just pushes you to embrace the things that makes you like everyone else 'cause everyone has something."

Jazzmyne and Ashley absolutely loved Divinity's photo. She looked comfortable in her own skin, and she looked like she was enjoying herself.

They also thought Divinity totally nailed the composition, the bring it factor, and it was most definitely feed-worthy. Jazz said, "I really trust her with this photo. She just looks so good and so comfortable."

Next up was Victoria, who went to the Malibu Creek State Park and braved the wind and chilly weather to lie in a creek and get her shot.

She said it was difficult to break down her wall of insecurities for the shoot since she tends to hide her arms, as well as the stretch marks on her body.

Both Jazzmyne and Ashley were blown away by Victoria's photographs. They thought they were absolutely beautiful.

Victoria nailed the composition and the bring it factor while maintaining the same vibe in every shot. Jazz said, "She has all the elements here. She pushed herself, it's creative, it's fashionable."

Up next was Katie, who said her hair is a huge security blanket for her, so she chose to not just go makeup-free, but to also pull her hair back up into a ponytail.

She said, "I always feel like everything has to be perfect — my hair, my makeup, my outfit, and I am worthy to feel beautiful and confident when it's just me."

Although Jazzmyne and Ashley said Katie looked cute, they thought her photo was missing a little creativity, or "umph."

It was a beautiful photograph, but the judges ultimately thought a different pose would've popped a bit more. Ashley said, "It's like she's trying to hide her shape."

Then it was on to Enthony, who wants to be a voice for people who are afraid to be themselves because of what people will say about them.

He did a little research (yep) and decided to portray himself as an angel. Boy were the judges in for a treat.

Look at Enthony's photograph! It was a piece of work, literally.

Jazz said, "For the bring it factor, I feel like Tony brought it, but the other way. I don't know where he brought us." LOL!

Next was Rosie, who was a little scared but was determined to go out of her comfort zone by wearing a 1950s onesie that looks like a bathing suit.

She said, "I'm gonna be exposing a part of my body that I have not liked since I was 10 — my thighs."

Jazzmyne and Ashley loved that Rosie wasn't smiling in her final shot, unlike the pinup girls we're used to seeing.

They liked the composition but would've liked the shot to be a little bit brighter, and they would've loved to see more of Rosie's face.

And the last competitor they reviewed was Oso, who admits to being a filter addict because it helps him embrace one of his insecurities — his shoulders.

He said, "I know ya'll would say shave it, but then it comes back darker, and we're not having that."

Jazzmyne and Ashley were super impressed with how Oso used the lighting and the shadows in his photo. They thought he looked beautiful, peaceful, and stylish all at once.

Oso checked off all the boxes when it came to his picture's composition, the bring it factor, and the feedworthy-ness.

After careful consideration, Jazz and Ashley decided who would be this week's challenge winner, and who would be kicked off the feed.

It wasn't an easy choice.

It wasn't an easy choice.

The winner of the #NoFilter challenge was...(drumroll please) Victoria!

She told the judges, "Everything that you guys are telling me now just validates all the choices that I made and all the hard work that I put into it so thank you so much. I'm so happy." Aww!

Then Jazzmyne and Ashley decided that the person who would no longer be on the feed would be Katie.

They thanked her for stepping outside her comfort zone and taking on the challenge, but felt that her photo had fallen just a little bit short for them.
