Check out this preview of tonight's episode of America's Next Top Model where the cast and crew head to—wait for it—a garbage dump where they primp and pose for a chance to head to Morocco. It's probably smelly out there and poor Jay Manuel gets shat on by some birds (caught on camera!). Also in this episode: the model-wannabe contestants do pretty much nothing to dispel the myth about models being stupid.
