Tim tells the judges that Peter Butler and Collier Strong will be consulting for hair and make-up. They will have until midnight and a little time the next day for completions. He says that he feels that they have three winners and the judges are going to have a very hard time. Mondo is using these weird little hair hats on his models, while Andy has these claw hat things. Gretchen's going for a hat head look. The models come in for fittings. Mondo is clearly still a little worried about the polka dot dress dilemma, though he's saying otherwise.
More fittings. Mondo says that he wants his girls to have fun. He really loves models. Gretchen interviews that planning is one of her best traits. Andy is a little less organized. He's comfortable with the fact that he's going to be tweaking until the last moment. Mondo apparently had three girls not show up for the fitting. He says he'll just figure it out the next day. They all seem so psyched that I'm actually feeling nervous myself.
That night, in the hotel, Andy says that he doesn't know how to process this moment. Gretchen thinks back to how they didn't know each other in the beginning. Andy interviews that it's sad that they won't all be together after this. Mondo tells the others that this show has taught him so much about going after what you want. Andy says that he wants this so bad. He has played the quiet one, but it's important for him to win. Gretchen interviews that this has been hard and humbling (the mannequins are like, "Could you repeat that last part?). She's really scared. Mondo sobs that he wants this so bad and doesn't want to fail. He says that he knows he'll walk away from this a better person.
The next morning, at 3 AM, they all rise. Andy says that this is fucking exciting. Gretchen tells Mondo that he looks like a million bucks. In the car to Lincoln Center, Gretchen says that she gets weepy when she thinks of what's happening. Wow, I have to commend them for being super present as all of this is taking place.
They walk inside the tent. Wait. Gretchen is wearing what appears to be black panties under a see-through black dress. April made her outfit. I don't get her. Anyway, they are amazed as the size of the tent. They all hug and feel the moment a little more. Gretchen lies down and makes runway angels.
