Last week, Lalo went home because he got high. Afroman reference. Mark enters the loft screaming that he never wants to be on the bottom again (so he’s a top kind of guy…) and Jesse interjects that he thought he would be the one to go home. Steve tells us again that the guys on the bottom need to go. If only they would throw out a double elimination then Steve could move on to other fish in the sea instead of Mark and Kay.
The artists meet the judges by the water and we learn this week will be all about contrast which can be with color or depth. In walk some storm troopers and Sarah flips the fuck out in the geekiest way possible. The 4 hour Flash Challenge will be to design a Storm Trooper helmet showing contrast. The winning helmet will be signed by George Lucas and all of them are getting auctioned off for the Make a Wish Foundation. You can bid on them here.
Clint, Sarah and Steve are all leading the bids understandably. Steve does a badass American Flag design because nothing contrasts better than red, white and blue. Kay has no real reference to Star Wars and decides to keep quiet and not pretend like he knows what it is all about. Sarah and Clint completely geek out over the challenge with Sarah saying she deserves this wins. Clint says it is time to punch someone in the mouth (I volunteer Steve or Kay) because he does contrast very well. Sebastian tries to do a Darth Maul inspired design but he isn’t sure of the reference and Clint tells him in his talking head to shut up because you shouldn’t need a reference. Sarah explains that Sebastian is very C3P0 with his copy paste skills. She then attacks Tacky’s helmet because she did a sugar skull theme which is so not Star Wars…Sarah, you jelly?
The judges actually enjoyed Tacky’s design as well as Sarah, Jesse and Clint. Ultimately Clint is declared the winner though my favorite has to be Steve’s helmet. Clint won because he not only used color but the actual scenery (winter vs not winner) as contrast. Sarah is bummed out and Clint tells us we can hear a heart breaking.
