So, that leaves us with three newcomers and six veterans. If we go by previous season five episodes, Scott is due for removal, with probably Eddie next. Scott has been in the bottom three the last three main challenges. Eddie has been in the bottom twice all season. All others have been in the bottom once or never.
And, I'm NOT dead yet!
Mr. P. states that it has to feel like a piece of living art. Alana picks Constructivism even though she knows little about it. Why? Laney, Eddie and Laura know *exactly* what they want.
Frank is able to get to molding first. Laura interviews that they can't think of this challenge in a typical manner, but as a work of art.
Meanwhile, Miranda is asking Frank to make her decisions. How does she decide what to eat for breakfast? Or choose between chocolate & vanilla?
But only about Tate's blood & broken bones,
not about Miranda's insecurities about sculpting.
Laney can't open her mold. Ah, we see the tape she has to separate the two sides, and the mystery of why no "Pam" is revealed.
Tate is back, 13 stitches later,
Um, uh-huh. At any rate Tate seems unfazed. He interviews that it's a calamity, but he is working and focused. Oy.
When the models come in, it's a normal frenzy. During the last hour Alana is freaking out, she surely won't finish the painting. Hey, did you ever notice how Laney is uber-focused? She does a lot, and doesn't complain, she *just* works. Nice. Okay, I want Laney to win now. I mean for the season. I do think it is between Laura and Tate, but I like that Laney is so committed to excellence. Miranda is talented enough to win, but her brain will explode whenever Tate tires of holding her hand, don't ya think?
How do they do? For the most part they create looks that embody the art movement they chose. Take a look:
Did you see the Chyron? It's not Impressionism, honey!
Now I am confused. Tate didn't follow the brief.
His looks more like this
Scott's looks clunky, and the volcano doesn't look very volcano-y. Eddie's REALLY looks Expressionistic. The color doesn't have enough detail or highlights, though, right? Oh, forget me, let's see what happens.
Miranda and Alana interviewed during the initial judging that they are both in the bottom, and Alana is certain she is out.
Miranda explains her concept. She shares her disappointment with her work. Glen corrects her, it is a strong makeup. Ve hates that she didn't do ANYTHING on the arms, but Neville loves the look.
Ve is laughing at Tate's work before he even starts. He impresses some of the judges with the work, but not the make up or paint. Worse, it is not surrealistic.
Eddie's expressionistic look is panned. Neville sees a burned monster. Glenn is perturbed by the mask feel. Ve hates the monochromatic red.
Laura explains her cubism, and Glenn declares it stunning. Ve says immaculate and mind-boggling.
Scott's volcano doesn't translate. Ve and Glenn don't see it at all. It looks more like a tree stump.
Laney is admired for nailing the style and art movement. She went above and beyond, creating a particular character. Ve sees too much red. (Again?)
After deliberation, Miranda,
and Laura are declared the top three.
So, now we have six veterans and only two newcomers (Laney and Eddie) to vie for the season five win. Who do you think it will be? Is my guess of a final three of Laney, Laura and Tate reasonable? That's a prediction, not a wish list.
