Hey Gasmii! Since we left off last week, I have to make one teeny tiny little concession: Joseph is not just a cat sweater guy. He tweeted me (So exciting, this newfangled technology!) to make sure I knew that he wasn’t just a cat sweater guy, and some of his stuff is actually really cute! You can check it out here.
Last week: The unconventional challenge took down the most unconventional designer. But it really did bring out the best in the rest of the designtestants, and the runway show full of florals and hardware was fantastic! Samantha won, leading the Dream Team to their first win, following a shakeup which evened out the ranks on the teams. And there was a cliffhanger in which the designers weren’t done for the day yet, being told to meet Tim and Heidi on the runway. Suspense!
Heidi and Tim emerge from behind the screen with the button bag, and a couple of designers tell us how nervous the button bag makes them. Heidi explains that the teams will be broken up into smaller units, and they will be choosing their own design partners. Uh oh… this can’t be good for Amanda or Patricia. Those poor women are going to end up getting the dodgeballs thrown directly at their heads.
Because Samantha won the last challenge, she gets to choose first, and she goes for Daniel. Dick chooses Stanley (Michelle’s probably thinking “poor Stanley is going to have to babysit him,”) Patricia selects Layana (who is surprised to be chosen because she doesn’t feel like they get along very well,) Matthew chooses Michelle (who is “stressed out” and doesn’t really explain why, but we all know it’s because she stresses out about everything,) Kate selects Tu, and Amanda and Benjamin are the last two remaining (and I have a feeling their team is going to have some time management issues.)
Back at Atlas, Amanda gossips to Michelle and Layana that she’s relieved to be out of the big team, because it was hurtful to be viewed as the weakest link. Benjamin tells Dick that he feels he’s going to have to push Amanda to be “more adventurous.” Maybe Benjamin should not worry so much about what other people are doing, because he seems to get into trouble when he goes into manager mode instead of staying in designer mode.
First thing in the morning, the designers arrive at a bar. (Best challenge ever!) It’s a country-western bar, and Tim tells them that they’re designing for country star Miranda Lambert. Everyone seems excited, but this would be much more exciting, and make for better television, if they moved the workroom to the bar for this challenge. Hell, some of the designs might actually turn out better if they were drunk the whole time.
Everyone’s excited about Miranda Lambert, except for Stanley. But to be fair, he never seems excited about much. (BTW- sorry. This is my very first attempt at a gif. I promise to do better next time.)
