Jeffrey says that he was trying to please Darlene while putting his own stamp on the garment. Michael says that he can see Jeffrey in the garment. He says that it looks like Jeffrey was trying to please Darlene, "but not really." He thinks Jeffrey ended up with a confused garment. Heidi says she doesn't love it, but she can see his point of view. She asks Angela how she thinks her mother looks. "Not attractive. I think it's embarrassing." Still, no balls on that one.
The judges deliberate. They like Uli, Michael, and Vincent. Michael says that Vincent found a way to make something classic that still felt interesting, which is the first reason I've heard in favor of that dress that makes sense, because it seemed fairly blah to me. They don't like Angela, KoMC, Robert, Laura (though they think the tailoring was perfect), or Jeffrey. Michael Kors should get some sort of prize for saying that Jeffrey's outfit looked like "Comme des Garcons goes to the Amish country."
The designers come back to the stage. Commercials. Seventy percent of voters think Angela's mom was right in the fight. We're back. Michael was immune, so he's "in." Laura is "in." Vincent won. VINCENT WON A CHALLENGE. Wow. I was not expecting that. I'm kinda feeling like Uli was robbed, but...nice job, Vincent. He interviews that he's glad he won because it feels like when he was doing business in New York. Ah, business in New York, the pre-crazy years. His sister and Uli's mom are hugging him backstage
Uli is "in." KoMC is "in." Angela is "in." Heidi tells Jeffrey that his outfit was a failure. She tells Robert that he's boring. He is not fashion-forward, nor do they see a point of view from him. In the end, Robert is "out."
Backstage, everyone hugs Robert. He interviews that he has learned a lot about himself as a designer while on the show. KoMC tells Robert, "You brighten up my sunshine every morning. You make me laugh."
Now, beautifully encapsulating how stupid he is, Jeffrey is crying while his mother comforts him. "They're not all good people," he says as his mother shhhhs him. "That's the bottom line. They're not all good people. And Robert's a good person." Tell me, you dim fuck, which of the people on that show have exhibited more bad-person qualities than you? Poseur. I have a feeling Jeffrey cries a lot when his mother's around. Nobody else would listen for a second to his declarations about who's a good person and who isn't.
