Now that the designers have been whittled down, we are starting to get some intriguing matchups, ranging from the insufferable to mildly annoying. This week we had Daniel/Richard, Layana/Stanley, Kate/Tu, Patricia/Samantha and Michelle/Amanda.
This week the designers have to create a prom dress using duct tape, with 20% of their score based on the reactions of high school students
Here are the 5 most memorable moments.
1. QUACKING UP
When Heidi brought that duck out, and mentioned “Unconventional Challenge,” I can’t be the only who thought, “They have to design for corporate mascots!” The AFLAC Duck, FLO from those Progressive ads, and those two hot “I’m here to snake your drain and flush your pipe” guys from Liquid Plumber.
2. DOWNFALL OF A DISNEY PRINCESS
Kate was almost as polarizing as Patricia, with opinions ranging from Daniel’s “Disney Dominatrix” to Michelle, who makes actual retching sounds discussing her, calling it “gross schtick.” Wow.
3. ALL THAT GLITTERS
The funniest storyline of the night was the rise and fall, crash and burn of Richard and Daniel, who started out cocky and obnoxious, high-fiving each other because of their mutual brilliance. That quickly ended when a stunned Heidi let them in on the sad truth.
