Kendal and Chris are next. They explain that they wanted something formal and form-fitting that was sexy but also not too sexy. Quoth Chris, "Not like ooh she just came from a strip bar." Jay then tells them that they look like they came from a strip bar. Mission not accomplished! When asked if she could handle being in front of half a billion people, Kendal says that she'd be nervous as heck, but would drink a lot of Red Bull to help with the nerves. Not a great strategy! Next we have Jane, who trips when entering the stage, and Esther. Neil asks why their chosen outfits work for the Grammys. Esther says that they always see girls in tight dresses and short skirts on the red carpet, but as a Grammy girl you want to get attention but not necessarily be at the center. That's a fine point, though they didn't have to go so far as to pick dresses from Little House on the Prairie. Esther's ensemble is particularly dowdy, while Jane's might be cute if it weren't so cheap-looking and ill-fitting. Kendal tells us that Esther and Jane looked like they were on the way to Sunday school.
Finally we have Ann and Chelsey. Jay asks Chelsey why she's clutching the side of her dress with an angry fist. Chelsey explains that she's not sure if she's wearing the dress correctly, and if she lets it go the seams get all fucked up. To be honest, the dress doesn't look so bad, and Chelsey should fake that it's the most awesome thing she's ever seen. Jay agrees with me, and tells her that she needs to sell it with confidence. Jay likes Ann's ensemble, even though she looks like Elvira from the Wild West. Chelsey is upset with Ann. She says that she put a lot of time and thought into choosing Ann's outfit, but Ann seems to have put in absolutely no effort for Chelsey's ensemble. Honestly, I think that Ann means no malice but is just kind of clueless about this stuff. And you can't fall into choosing a great Grammy dress for someone the way you can fall into a great broken down doll pose when you're 6'2" and naturally hunched.
Jay gives the girls their critiques. Kayla spoke up right away and flirted a little, and thus stood out a bit. Liz was honest about saying that she didn't get what she asked for but still rocked the pants, and she looked the part. Kendal wasn't particularly graceful, and no one wants a fidgety, stumbling Grammy girl. Chris has a great personality and contagious enthusiasm, but looks like a stripper. Jay wonders if Kendal sabotaged her, and Kendal vehemently denies this in an interview. Esther has a very good perspective on what the job is about -- mainly standing in the back and not drawing attention to yourself. Chelsey's irritation made Jay feel uncomfortable, and would likely make an audience feel uncomfortable as well. Jay says that Ann looked great in her outfit. Chelsey is again pissed, since she would like to take credit for dressing Ann so well but Ann gets the kudos, per usual. However, Neil notes that Ann's height might be a distraction, since she'll tower over shorter stars. Ann's frustrated that her height is an issue again, but tells us that she's not going to take drastic measures such as chopping her own legs off. That's good to hear, particularly given the direction the impending Ann meltdown has been going.
Jay announces that the winning team is Kayla and Liz! Hooray! They are both very excited. Neil says that it was a tough choice to pick a winner. Kayla has a lot of personality and beautiful red hair. Liz has fantastic enthusiasm, but she's obviously enamored of stars in the music business and can't let the fact that she's starstruck overtake her ability to do the job. Kayla wins! She breaks down in tears and Jay asks why she's crying. Always one to stick to her talking points, Kayla tells us that she's the girl who didn't even have a bed until she was 14, and went from home to home since she wasn't accepted due to her sexuality. Now she's going to the Grammys and might brush fingers with Kanye! She's come a long way, relatively. Liz, meanwhile, is pissed. She says that she wanted the prize more than anyone in the group, and is doing everything in her power not to scream. Or, I imagine, punch someone.
Back at home Liz continues to pout, but then remembers the key to forgetting all of life's troubles: alcohol! She proceeds to get shitfaced, and we have a montage of her running around the house, tripping, crawling on the floor, and telling the others that she accidentally drank the whole bottle of white wine. Chelsey tells us that Liz was the most upset of everyone, but took it over the line. She adds that Liz plays the part of the victim very well, and is always the first to complain if something goes wrong in the photo shoot. Chelsey sees this as evidence that Liz isn't as strong as she thinks she is, but really I think it indicates that Liz can be rather annoying and is unsuccessful at keeping it in check.
