You *know* that this episode is all about ME.
Hell, even Fashion Week, held weeks ago, is still all about me.
That'd be crazy.
Tim meets with the designers, and introduces the challenge. As the superfans file in, one of the guys (presumably a male contestant, oui?) lets out a sad and disgusted, "oh." I can't tell who it is, but, geez, way to rain on some poor soul's parade, eh? Maybe the others didn't hear it.
Tim explains that this is the L'Oreal Paris challenge (hair and makeup, hell, transformation, too, will factor into judging.)
Mr. G. explains that they were already teamed up, arbitrarily. There's no drama here, though, which is a nice change.
Then Ken interviews that Tim is talking but he's not hearing it. He says he's "scared as hell" of a non-model challenge.
Bradon's makeover candidate doesn't look like she needs a makeover. He's at a disadvantage now, isn't? The designers sketch and discuss with their clients. Each fan seems on the ball, which, well, we'd expect. At Mood Ken lets his model choose the fabric. He doesn't like the color, although it isn't bad for her. Still, isn't that enough discordance to send one down the wrong path?
Why does Tim give them a range of $200 to $400 for the 'suggested' spending budget? Why not commit to $300? Why won't they show the amounts spent on the runway segment, so we can count along? Next time he'll just say to spend whatever the hell they want, budget be damned!
Tim reminds them that they have 2 days for this challenge (merci, Seigneur!) and introduces Johnny LaVoy to explain that hair is on the head. Or, something like that.
I hope you're open to change, because, honey,
we need to move some Ombre product.
You're all getting an ugly ombre!"
They get their hair color & cuts right away. At the end of the day Bradon & Alexander pack up and move into Justin & Ken's room. It's the typical consolidation. Or, not.
open up out of Ken's torso and eat him up whole.
Alexander interviews that he and Bradon go into a different room and lock the door behind them. Out of fear, yes?
Tim states that Ken will have his own room, and the other guys will share another. Geez, if you throw a fit, you get your own room? If you REALLY whine and go crazy, will you automatically win the season?
In the midst of it, I hear sirens. Oh, good, something is happening, the police are here to arrest Ken? No. Does he breathe fire at someone? No. Separate rooms, moving forward. That's it?
It's a Day 2 Tim-thru! He tells Justin the signature aspect is sweet. He tells him no skirt should go below the knee. They must have edited out 1994 Heather Locklear. How *did* Tim ever survive 1970? Or, for that matter, season 9?
At the end of day two Alexander is way behind on his construction. In the morning of runway day he is the most frazzled as well.
Joining Heidi Klum & a Tim in the judges chairs are Zac Posen, Zanna Roberts Rassi (no Nina!) and designer Erin Fetherston.
It's about time I was used as inspiration!
I don't mind the color, she looks nice in some greens, but the fit is off. The lines are not flattering at all. He could have placed them differently and really helped her out. Think Jillian on s4e5.
Alexandria Von Bromssen
I sort of like the skirt. The jacket is the wrong style and fit. She's got a slammin' body, she can be showcased MUCH better than this. I do like the gray playing against the new red hair.
In the waiting room Ken shares that he is relieved. He was intimidated because he didn't go to design school. Alexandria affirms his right to be there.
Vacate the premises immediately,
if you don't want a foot
up your backside.
Damn, I'd be crushed if Tim refused to hug me. Even if he wore an all-gingham outfit. So, Ken, I may have enjoyed the anger as entertainment, but, well, you're my brother in Christ, or, at least, my brother in humanity. I don't like the ease with which you go down the anger path, but I am glad you were on PR, and I do hope that you can make the best of how you presented yourself to the world. You aren't stuck with what happened, you can turn it around. I mean, as long as you have today, you can be a better man. Thanks to Alexandria for reminding me that everyone has worth. And well, in a way, Tim.
Tune in next week when a contestant is stuck with ugly fabric!
