The designers deliberate, and the girls are called back in. Shingo does the talking, but it's Hitomi who apparently calls all the shots. The big winner is Eva, which I more or less suspected when I saw our intrepid designer doodling "Hitomi Pigford" on the back of her score sheet. Eva said that her strategy was finding things that don't go together and look really stupid. Good strategy, apparently. She asks, "How dumb do I look?" Shingo tells Eva that she can take one person with her, and she chooses Ann. The two smile and sway back and forth and celebrate, under the mistaken illusion that love's fresh rosebud has not withered and died. Eva interviews that she chose Ann because there was no one else that she wanted there but Ann.
At home, Yaya (who in approximately six seconds will revert to being "fucking Yaya") puts on a face mask. Not working, honey. She confessionalizes that it was a very good day, and that she thinks she did well, except for the being-late part. Um, that's kind of a big part, dumb-ass. She says, "But I did the girls a favor because my non-presence there gave someone else a chance to win." First off, Ivy League, it's called "absence." And second...fucking Yaya. I wish that she had been there on time just so she Eva could have beat her ass squarely, and with no doubts of other possible outcomes.
The girls return home, and Amanda tells Yaya that Eva won. Amanda interviews that Yaya says it isn't a big deal, but is most likely worried that her disqualification will be brought up in panel. Yaya asks whether the designers said anything about her. Amanda says with a tone of voice that implies a shoulder shrug, "No." Hee! Oh, Amanda, is kind of my new friend.
Eva and Ann arise at 6:30 AM to meet the mystery guest. They are dropped off at a very elite part of town and are introduced to famed jewelry designer Toyohiko Mikimoto. Eva interviews that she knew of Mikimoto and Ann didn't, but that, "[Ann] already made a point of [saying that] if she didn't know who a person was, she was still gonna act like she knew him. Very good, Banana, very good." Remember this for later. Eva interviews in a really cute, exited way that she figured they were going to get some jewelry. And what I really hate Ann for (besides being a general ass and tarnishing the already dubious reputation of the sapphically-inclined) is making me kind of dislike Eva, just by association. I used to enjoy her much more, but now every time she's on screen I'm just like, "Too much drama."
