Heidi greets the designers at the runway and reminds them that they only have this challenge to prove themselves. She tells them that they will be designing a dress for the red carpet at the Grammy Awards. Hmm. They will have two days to complete the dress. Model choosing time! Kara gets to choose first. She goes with Jenny again. Austin takes Martinique. Austin asks Jay to choose him again. Laughs. I think we're supposed to feel a little bit of drama about Julia's tardiness from the last challenge, but I think it's pretty clear that she was just overbooked or something. She doesn't seem like the type to flake. Jay doesn't think so, either; he chooses Julia. Wendy is the last to choose again, placing her in her natural state of disappointing others. She chooses Melissa. Backstage hugging commences. Goodbye, Olga. May your diamond wedding dress blind others with its shine, all the days of your life.
At the Workshop, Tim Gunn announces that he will introduce to the designers someone "extremely glamorous and connected." Instead, he brings out Nancy O'Dell. Are you kidding me? Is there no one else they could get? Kara Saun interviews that she watches Nancy O'Dell every day. Wendy says she doesn't watch Access Hollywood, in that annoying "I don't watch television" way. Hey, Wendy, it stopped being cool not to know who Michael Jackson was and shit back in 1996. Nancy O'Dell will wear the winning design in the challenge. She makes a few jokes about how the designers had better be good. Nancy informs them that the Grammys are hipper and more rock and roll than the Oscars. Terrific, because when I think of Nancy O'Dell, I think of cookie-cutter L.A. pulsations. I mean, "hip." And, "rock and roll." Tim tells the designers to ask Nancy some questions. She says she likes bright colors. No hot pink. She likes leather and two-piece ensembles. Finally, the Grammy outfit can be more fun than an Oscar gown. Tim says that the designers are going to be given some technical assistance to help them finish the task. Jay says that he thought it would be "some Korean-speaking woman with, like, eighteen fingers, ready to just sew for [them]." Instead, he brings out Robert, "the monkey" (per Jay). Robert interviews in his malapropian, mixed metaphor way that all of the designers were happy to see him. Austin paints a different picture in his interview, pointing out that Robert was eliminated because he was technically inept, so he probably won't be much help here.
