Isaac tells Reco that he had a rabid fan base that freaked out when he got cut. Some even accused Bravo of being racist. Oh God. Reco looks like he thinks that's crazy. One comment said that the judges were on crack to keep James-Paul and eliminate Reco. Isaac jokes that Reco wrote the comment, which is also a little demeaning. He's not going to win -- just leave him alone. Fern says that she thinks they made the right decision and they must have been smoking the right stuff. This gets applause from all of the designers. Maybe Reco deserves that a little bit for being such a hot dog during the competition. Seems kinda mean though. Reco says that he made bold choices in his collection and he's happy with that. He wonders if his research went over everyone's heads. Yes, Aztec triangles went over my head, Reco. He adds that he knows "how TV works." Huh? I don't get it. What does he mean? That his collection was too cerebral? Oh God. Fern says that, as was mentioned on the show, you're only as good as your last collection. His last collection wasn't good enough. Isaac says that his collection didn't live up to the promise of his other clothes. Reco, clearly perturbed, says that he is going to be a great designer and has gotten a lot of opportunities from the show, so he's fine with being 4th. I love this tension!!
Isaac says that viewers tuned in for what the designers were making, but also for what they were wearing. Haven's shorts. Johnny's hair. Merlin's everything. There's the time Merlin was hanging out in his panties and he points out that Haven is wearing shorts too, but Marcus says Merlin's "man-berries" are hanging out. Yuck. Kelly says that she has never heard that term before. Duh, someone was sleeping in Biology class.
