We begin with a lovely reminder that Blake was finally auf’ed last week. We are down to the top ten. The girls and the guys each have a boom box with a cassette tape to play with the information on their next location. It’s an unconventional materials challenge using old technology they get from dumpster diving through outdate technology. I’m not super excited by this challenge.
We get a montage about Joseph’s matronly looks. He is going to go sexy this week. Jake is depressed about something. Ashley is using polaroid pictures as her main design material. Jake asks to speak with Tim. Jake’s dog needs to be put down. He needs to leave. Lord, every time I hear about this I have a panic attack about Banjo.
Tim comes in to check on the designers. Lindsey struggles with unconventional challenges. Candace’s dress is off to a good start, it’s mostly cables and cords. Tim love’s Ashley’s polaroid stuff. Kelly is doing something with aluminum tubes. Edmond is doing a black dress made of mouse pads for his template. Merline is a mess, but she has immunity. Joseph has chosen some pretty unforgiving materials. Laurie is also using mouse pads. Swapnil is doing some sort of asymmetrical sculpture piece. Overall, Tim thinks everything is going very well. Swapnil basically admits to Candace that he is sandbagging. Swapnil barely did any work all day. He needed a break. And a smoke.
Swapnil’s tangled mess of cables ensemble comes out. I don’t like it. Swapnil talks about it as if it his finest creation.
Edmond’s mousepad dress is cute. He has some competition for top three though, so we shall see.
Lindsey basically made half a dress. The top is cute but the skirt is just basically muslin. Bottom three for her AGAIN.
Candace loves her dress. The model can barely walk in it. I would like it better if she hadn’t used white on the boobs. Not my favorite but the judges might like it.
Laurie’s mouse pad dress is not great. She could have done better.
Kelly’s aluminum dress is definitely top three and possibly the winner.
Merline’s dress is a hot mess. She loves it though and she has immunity.
Joseph’s dress is not that bad there there are wires hanging between the model’s legs.
Ashley’s dress is awesome.
My top three are Ashley, Kelly and… I guess homeboy.
My bottom three are Lindsey, Merline and Joseph and if Merline can’t be in the bottom, then Swapnil.
The judges top three are: Edmond, Ashley and Kelly.
The judges bottom three are: Joseph, Swapnnil!!! (I didn’t think they would do that), Lindsey.
Joseph’s dress was really bad in the back that I missed on the runway. They tore into Swapnil for his muslin skirt, They really compliment Ashley a lot. She cries. They love Kelly. the judges hate Lindsey. They don’t even like the top.
In the waiting room Lindsey has a meltdown. The judges really were rather harsh on her. The judges notice that Edmond’s workmanship is not that great this week. It will be a hard choice between Ashley and Kelly for the win. I think they both deserve it. They are struggling to decide who they hate more, Lindsey or Joseph. Swapnil will squeak through. Zac is not a Swapnil fan. Zac says that Swapnil thinks he has the contest in the bag and didn’t even try.
Kelly wins. Joseph is Auf’d. For once the judges choices were reasonable. I think Lindsey needs to go home next.
