At the workroom, they all get to work. Haven and Daniella compare whose client has the largest ass. 43-inch for Kashelle and 45-inch for Daniella's girl. Then, they spend hours padding their mannequins. They're acting like they're designing for Martians. I find this whole scenario tedious. It's been done before and it's just stupid seeing these designers freak about shit like this. It's like someone on Survivor being surprised that they have to eat a worm or something. Daniella is being a big baby. She sees that Reco is already cutting out a pattern and asks him how he's that far along. He says that he just knew what he wanted to do. She says that she has never been so uninspired and starts crying into her crochet cap. Angel interviews that Daniella just got out of school and hasn't designed for "real women," but a talented designer can flatter any body shape. Haven interviews that Daniella is able to put someone up for elimination, so she'll be fine.
The next morning, they all get to work. Johnny explains to Merlin some panels he's going to use to minimize hips and maximize bust. Daniella interviews that she thought that Merlin should have been in the bottom last week and, if his new outfit is bad, she will indeed put him in the bottom. Hmm, it's almost too perfect. They don't seem to have even really noticed each other since the first episode. This continued animosity feels a little manufactured. Kelly and Isaac enter and start talking to Keith. He says that he's cinching the waist of his dress, in order to enhance other areas. Merlin says of his client, "Her boobs is too big." Isaac remarks that Merlin is building his first piece of eveningwear and his fabric is tweed, while for previous challenges he has created daywear with sequins and satin. James-Paul says that his girl is worried about her shoulders. He says that his client is very simple, and his work is very difficult.
Daniella explains that she's having a problem because her model is bigger all over. Isaac stops her and says that a size 16 is average for the real world. He thinks she's being sizist. She says that she's not -- it's the big fat model's fault.
Outside, Kelly and Isaac discuss. They think Daniella might be in trouble because she's usually so much more comfortable. Kelly says she doesn't really understand Merlin's design. Isaac says that he has yet to see the point of Keith's dress, which I have to say surprises me a little. It seemed like a smart, clear-cut idea when he first described it.
