My computer ate my post and I was simply too sad to try to recreate my brilliance. So, we're doing a bullet point version.
-Shawn and Claire, aka the twins were on separate "sides" this week and I noted they did not do a combined mannequin interview, leading me to suspect the producers had been spreading out one over multiple episodes. They still have essentially the same style, Shawn just used leather and Claire used crappy gauze so Shawn was safe and Claire was on the bottom.
-Margarita went into a tizzy over having a large model and then it was fine.
-Samantha fell into the classic trap of being the person who felt the most connected to the challenge and then bought bad fabric that meant her outfit just looked like an interesting idea gone wrong. Hope she rebounds.
-Kenya on the other hand rebounded and ended up in the top.
-Michael stayed in the top with awesomeness. And feathers.
-Brandon stayed in the top with something that looked like week one crossed with last week, aka, nicely made but boring. He won. The judges said branch out now. We'll see if they mean it.
-Aaron, who I had thought was coasting had just a major crisis of time management or fabric or both and sent down the runway a mess that looked worse that any of the Santino specials where he glues and stapled crap over the parts he hadn't finished and was badly hemmed at literally every hem and the strap broke so the model was holding the dress onto her boob with her arm.
-They thrilled audience members and scared the designers breaking out the "one or more designers will go home" and then sent only Aaron. We are now at the point where I cannot imagine one of the twins not going home next week, but we shall see.
