It is a truth universally acknowledged that the bar for awful America’s Next Top Model outfits can’t get much lower than Miss J’s bedazzled, velcro-accented band jacket (and matching eyebrows) worn across every episode of the long-running reality competition series’ tenth cycle.
Cycle 23 judge Law Roach, however, has other ideas.
The library is open in EW’s exclusive preview (below) from the next episode of ANTM, which sees Roach, a celebrity stylist who’s dressed the likes of Zendaya, Ariana Grande, Ruby Rose, and Celine Dion, reading one of the show’s remaining model hopefuls, Cody Wells, for her questionable fashion sense.
“This outfit is driving me crazy. [Above the waist], you’re a supermodel. [Below the waist], you’re supermarket,” he says as she approaches the judging table for her weekly critique, grabbing his head in disgust upon seeing the pair of strappy gladiator sandals Wells paired with a form-fitting dress. “Those shoes. I can’t. Please. Your shoe choices drive me crazy and I’ve been holding it in the whole entire season, but today I couldn’t help it.”
Wells squirms as Roach picks her apart, mustering a small “ouch” as his criticism continues: “I would rather you walk up here barefoot and just walk like Naomi or like your shoe broke or something.”
Watch Roach’s reaction to Wells’ panel attire above. America’s Next Top Model airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on VH1.
