Hey Gasmii! Last week was just awful, wasn’t it? If you follow this show, you just always know that when the designers have to make something for a real person, it isn’t going to be so great, but OH, THE HUMANITY! I mean… I’m not even going to bother briefly reviewing what happened, because I think we’d all like to pretend last week didn’t happen at all. So let’s just get started!
We begin with the boys over at Atlas, and Stanley, Tu and Daniel have been blessed to have Dick move in with them. Stanley (along with the rest of us) is surprised that Amanda didn’t go home. The women are having a similar conversation over in their apartment, but out of politeness it’s less focused on the fact that Amanda didn’t go home, and that Benjamin did. Kate tells us that Amanda is the next to go. Amanda herself tells us that she was just as surprised as everyone else, and that she’s going to draw from that experience. If the other times she has been in the bottom group of designers didn’t give her anything to draw from, I’m not really sure how this particular experience is going to give her a boost, but I guess we’ll see.
At Parsons, Heidi leads a duck on a leash out to the runway!
And his name is Fred!
We learn an interesting tidbit about Daniel: he used to have a pet duck. I want to know if he also had a roommate that had a pet goose. We also learn an interesting tidbit about Tu, the most laid-back, positive contestant on Project Runway: he hates ducks! Really, really hates them! Apparently a friend of his had a pet duck that tried to bite him once. It remains to be seen whether or not the duck had good judgment. Heidi tells them that the duck is a clue to the next challenge, and Layana offers to us the weirdest guess possible; she hypothesizes that the challenge is designing something for farm animals. I would have gone with designing with feathers, or down-filled coats, but okay, Layana. Farm animals. Sure.
As the designers arrive at the work room, it is filled with every variety of Duck Tape that there is! Zebra stripe, butterflies, penguins, neon orange, and classic silver, it is all there. Tim introduces the guy who runs the company, and the only thing about him that isn’t boring is that he’s wearing a tie made of Duck Tape. Tim tells the designers that they will be making a fashion-forward prom dress out of the tape. Daniel is elated, because “how can you go wrong with a prom dress for a 16-year-old girl?” He obviously wasn’t at my prom: my dress was admittedly awful, and I wasn’t the only one with an ugly dress. Wish I had a picture to show you guys, but I’m pretty sure I burned them all years ago.
