Hey Gasmii! This week’s episode has male strippers in it! So let’s get down to it! (See what I did there?)
Last week: The designtestants lived through a nightmare we all have, that we would have to go back to school. And get judged by the mean girls. They made prom dresses out of Duck Tape, and mostly fell flat on the “prom” side, but did pretty well on the “fashion-forward” side. Michelle won the challenge, while Kate and Tu fell flat (at least their dress looked a little too flat,) and in a surprise double-elimination, they both got Auf’d.
Tim and Heidi reappear on the runway, not long after the elimination. The designers are informed that the competition is going to get switched up: they will be 2 teams of 4, chosen by the judges. Team #1 begins with Daniel and Patricia. The judges claim it’s because the two will have a balance of styles, but it seems like they actually just placed the two kookiest designers on a team to be dark horses. The first members of Team #2 are Dick and Layana, so that her young, hip vibe can balance out his lack of taste. I can buy that reasoning, but it must suck for Layana that they gave her a teammate with no taste. Michelle is put on Team #1 to give it edge, and is none too happy about it. She whines that Daniel’s taste doesn’t mesh with hers because he is “Texas pink pageantry,” plus she hates working with Patricia.
Yeah, I wouldn’t want to work with someone who would design something like this, either.
Samantha has a “current fashion element” to add to Team #2. Stanley is put on Team #1 to test him in “staying strong to all the creative forces.” Is that Zac’s way of saying that Stanley rolls over in a group, and doesn’t have a point of view? If so, that’s pretty bitchy. That’s 2 whole episodes of bitchy in a row. Maybe he took a lecturing phone call from Michael Kors when he was on vacation a couple of episodes ago? As Heidi considers Amanda’s designs, they note that she’s either very good or very bad, and Nina translates that to “wallflower.” I don’t know what Nina thinks wallflower means, but I do not think it means what she thinks it means. Anyway, Amanda is directed to Team #2.
So what’s the challenge? Heidi is absolutely giddy to the point that Tim has to take over the duty of giving a description. When Tim tells the designers that they’re taking a field trip, Heidi begs to go with them, and Tim says that she cannot, because she has absolutely no self-discipline.
Sorry Tim, but you don’t get to looking like this with no self-discipline.
Anyway, the designers all pretty much guess that they’re going to have to design lingerie. But they realize it’s not that simple when they get to their rooftop stage destination, and a bunch of male strippers come dance for them. And it gets hot. I have to tell you, Gasmii, I had to stop watching there for a minute, and get some water. And each one of the contestants is super-excited, too.
Even Stanley cracked a smile!
