The next day, when Hoang Thuy arrived in the model house to talk about their improved catwalk practices for them to be equipped in the challenge before they went to Phan Thiet City sand dunes. When they practice their catwalking movement, Thuy Trang struggled, whereas Thanh & Tram, Huong, Duong, Quang, Phong, Nha, Phuong, Chau & Lan were impressed by Thuy. Later on, Trang improved due to Quang & Huong's concerns.

As they arrived in Phan Thiet City sand dunes together with Samuel, Hang followed by taking an ATV ride. There can be not just one, but two challenges that they need to test themselves. First challenge would be walking on the sand dunes by carrying the libra scale balance without the support. The starting point would be the blue flag while the red flag would be its terminal point. Phong & Phuong got a just right comment, Quang, Duong & Lan got a minimal concern from Hang while Thanh, Chau, Tram, Nha & Huong stood positive and eager to face new challenges as Hang is speechless for a great impression and Trang struggles the most because she didn't carry the libra scale correctly due to heavy weights and poor catwalks.

At the photo shoot, they were surprised that there would be a terrarium (with the hole at the bottom for them to insert his/her head as a sign of surprise) that is filled with sands, plants & some creepy animals like iguana, snake, baby crocodiles, frog and even large spiders that will be given to them. Nha was the first one to encounter with an iguana and a large spider for her beauty shots. Phong followed next with a baby crocodile, Tram with a snake (but she was frightened at first) and a spider (for her courageous dare), Quang with a baby crocodile and a spider, Trang with a spider (but she was terrified and then, struggled), Lan with a toad & a fast-running spider (also frightened and struggled like Trang), Thanh with a snake (because she loves it) and an iguana (that made her way to success by being courageous), Duong with a baby crocodile and a spider, Chau with an iguana and a spider, Phuong with an iguana & a snake (that made her shocked and struggled like Lan & Trang) & lastly, Huong with a crawling snake (that made her struggled at first, but later on, she ended up with a courage).

At the deliberation panel, Phong & Chau made a just right feedback, Nha, Tram, Phuong, Duong, Lan & especially Trang struggled due to some uncertainties & Huong, Quang & Thanh were impressed by the judges for their excellence. For the call-out order announcement, Thanh gained her second victorious picture, made her mark as the second finalist to gain second best photo after Quang on episode 6. Followed by Quang, Huong, Phuong, Chau, Trang, & Lan in the safe position while Nha, Duong, Phuong & Tram lead themselves into the danger zone.
