She does say it’s because of technical skills but since ole Shoulder Pads is universally disliked and notoriously thorny I’m wondering if Sonjia is a people-pleaser and just wants to be liked? Skunk puts it best by saying he’d rather “eat dirt than work with Elena”.
“Your decadence disgusts me. In my country, dirt is great delicacy which no one can afford”
Then Heidi draws a name out of the Sorting Button Bag to determine the next person up – Urkel – who chooses his BFF Blorpheus. The chosen people then get a shot at adding to the team and we end up with Sonjia, Elena, Tara, Dmitry, Dreads and Squiggy vs. Urkel, Blorpheus, Christopher, The Amazing Dumpster Diving Unibrow and Skunk. Skunk was almost chosen last and interviewed that he didn’t want to be on either team. The feeling was mutual but even the stench of skunk beats the stench of defeat coupled with the whine of a no-talent, so Squiggy was of course chosen last. Squiggy was especially hurt when Christopher had a turn choosing and went for the Freegan over him.
Even his hat has a unibrow
The teams aren’t even because of the double quitters so Team 5 has to make 5 outfits and Team 6 has to make 6. Tim comes in to plug HP, probably because the designers on this season have done mostly hand sketching so far. Which I love! Tim also tells them that they only have today for the designs because the next day is the photo shoot.
The teams huddle and Sonjia tries to help define a strategy, while Squiggy basically cowers in fear of being dumped again. The idea they have is to have each person do what they are most skilled at and then bring all the pieces together. So not everyone is doing one whole look but the pants people will make pants, skirt people will make skirts and the giant football jersey shoulder pad jacket people will do whatever they want because good luck stopping them.
“In Ukraine clown is considered most beautiful”
This is not a bad plan but it’s hard to bring together in a short time-frame and then there’s Squiggy, who keeps saying something about lace.
On the other hand, Team 5 chooses to promote Colored Women Who Fall at Work and Skunk is immediately irritated that he has to deal with the Urkel/Blorpheus pact who are working well with Christopher and everyone is fast to agree to a direction without Skunk’s input. He complains that they have chosen ugly colors and the style will end up dated. As opposed to style that no one would ever want to date.
Gay Larry David
Team 5 starts dictating to Skunk what his look should be to fit in with the others and I smell mutiny. They even tell him to design a pleated skirt. I guess we can assume this is now Team Blorpheus. At Mood, there is extra chaos and Squiggy refuses to listen to any input on fabric. I guess since he has such a strong track record he doesn’t need help… turning this into Team Sux.
