Original airdate:September 28, 2015

One by one, the chosen fourteen finalists move into the top model house. Some are displeased to find that contestants they dislike have been put through to the final cast. The following day the models receive their makeovers, causing displeasure among several of the girls who fear that their hair will be cut short. Jagoda openly complains about her new hair color, believing it doesn't suit her look. For the first photo shoot of the competition the models are divided based on gender to shoot two separate covers for Glamour magazine , getting to pose with last season's top two - Michal and Osi. Back at the house, Michael, Karolina G, and Magda begin speculating on who will be eliminated at the first round of judging.

For the official photo shoot of the week the contestants meet Miss Polonia 2011, Marcelina Zawadzka and photographer Jacek Kolodziejski for a session with parachutes. Before getting styled, each contestant is flown on a plane to take turns skydiving. Andre, Jakob, Karolina P, Ola and Radek are all standouts on set. Natalia is critiqued for bringing little energy on set, while Justyna and Kamila struggle.

At panel Joanna reveals that mentor Michał Pirog will be given the opportunity to bring one eliminated contestant back into the competition immediately after their elimination whenever he chooses. Jakob is deemed to have taken the best photo during the shoot, with Justyna and Kamila being placed in the bottom two for their lackluster photos. In spite of having expressed her desire to leave, Joanna hands the last photo to Kamila, and Justyna becomes the first finalist to be eliminated.

Episode 5

Original airdate:October 5, 2015

The remaining thirteen contestants receive a runway lesson from judge Kasia Sokołowska before being put to their paces in their very first runway show. At the venue they are introduced to model Zo Nowak, who shares tips based on her experience. Backstage, Samuel refuses to wear a snake print jacket due to his religious convictions, explaining that snake print was a 'symbol of evil'. After threatening to drop out of the competition, he is given a new outfit - much to the annoyance of several of the other contestants. On the catwalk, the models must remain composed while avoiding being struck by swinging pendulums. Natalia is noted for her marked improvement on the runway, but it is Andre who impresses the judges the most and wins the challenge.

Back at the house, the male contestants are waxed. At the shoot, the contestants are told that they will have pose nude. Those who refuse are given the option to work with 'partners' that won't be revealed until the session begins.

Karolina P. becomes agitated after several of the worms and millipedes she is posing with begin to crawl into her bra and underwear, with the rest having no issues. Samuel is given snakes to work with, causing a confrontation between him, Magda and Kamila, with the latter two pointing out his hypocrisy at having refused to wear the snake print earlier that week, but having no qualms about posing with a real snake. Natalia and Radek impress the most on set, while Jagoda makes a poor impression due to her crass attitude and lack of tact with the photographer.

Zo Nowak sits as the fifth judge at panel. Jakob, Magda, Natalia and Radek are all praised, but it is Radek who receives best photo. Jagoda and Ola land in the bottom two, and Jagoda is eliminated from the competition.

Episode 6

Original airdate:October 12, 2015

The contestants return home from the previous elimination, and several are surprised that Radek received best photo. The following morning, the models are visited by celebrity personal trainer Tomasz Oświęcinski for an vigorous exercise session. Natalia bails out halfway through the session, being lambasted by the trainer and several of the other contestants due to her laziness.

Later in the day, they are driven to a studio to meet with Michał Pirog for the challenge. Each of the models will have to pose with some of the contestants from the previous cycle, Marta, Michalina and Michał, to recreate a Bruno Banani campaign. Karolina P. is deemed to have done the best job, and is rewarded with a box full of Bruno Banani cosmetics and a voucher worth 2000zł.

The following day the models arrive at a prison and are asked to change into jumsuits. They are quickly confronted by an aggressive cop and inmate, who are revealed to be actors Marcin Perchuć and Julia Pogrebinska, both of whom will help them master their acting skills for the next challenge. Each contestant is then asked to improvise a scene with one of the actors, with the most convincing contestant winning the challenge. Ola has some issues with the setting, being reminded of the time she spent in juvenile hall. Ultimately, Natalia and Andre are chosen as the winners. As their prize, both are granted the opportunity to receive a visit from their loved ones.

For the photo shoot session the contestants are taken to a mansion where they are paired up to portray the throes of love and death. Ola has a hard time with her fatalistic attitude, as well as taking direction, while Natalia and Michael struggle to gel well together due to their heavy dislike for one another.

Natalia is deemed to have done better of the two, and is granted immunity. Karolina G. is told she outshone Sebastian in their photo, and is also given immunity. Kamila, Magda, Andre and Karolina P. are also declared immune, with the other six contestants facing elimination.

Jakob, Michael, Ola, Radek, Samuel and Sebastian have their photos evaluated more thoroughly. Samuel is criticized because of his anal attitude and lack of flexibility due to his religion. Michael is praised due to his improvement, while Radek is critiqued due to his lack of height and runway potential. Jakob is judged on his cockiness. Ola and Sebastian are critiqued for failing to improve and stand out. When the models are called back, Joanna announces that two people will be eliminated from the competition. The immune contestants are called first during elimination, with Natalia receiving the best photo overall. Jakob, Ola and Sebastian land together in the bottom three, and Jakob is saved due to the strength of his past performances.
