Rayn and the contestants. They were vying for $400, a free photo shoot and a makeover. However, seven other contestants didnt make it due to the inclementing weather, so Rayn split the cash between the three: 1st Place $200 and 2nd and 3rd Place split $100.
And the winner was:
Hunter came in 2nd and Moore came in 3rd . All the ladies were winners.
