Michelle explains that she adapted the muscle t-shirt and baggy pants. Nina doesn't think that it's strong enough for an editorial shoot. She reminds Michelle that she said verbatim that she didn't want a t-shirt and pants. Michelle cops to having made exactly the opposite of what Nina asked. Nina says that Michelle needs to employ a little bit of fantasy. I'm fantasizing about her getting kicked off of the show right now.
Backstage, we hear a Michelle interview where she says that she is feeling really emotional right now. Patricia is confident that she is going to be eliminated. The judges confer and Nina points out that Michelle completely ignored her instructions. They love that Layana was inspired by the Hearst Building. They like that Stanley's design has multiple pieces. They are kind of mixed on Daniel's look but ultimately approving. They are still interested in Patricia's work, even though she faltered on this challenge.
The designers return to the stage. Stanley wins the challenge! Jordana says that she is excited to wear his design. Layana is in. Daniel is in. That leaves Patricia and Michelle. Backstage, Layana says that she thinks it's going to be Patricia that goes. I guess we're not going to mention her absurd behavior from last week at all? Fine. Patricia is...in. She is crying when she gets backstage and says that she is in. Layana is such a dick and acts like she's almost upset because of the thought of Michelle being out. Michelle is not out though. Heidi tells her that she is getting a "do or die" moment. She is being sent home, but she will get one more shot to be a part of the competition. She, and we, will find out about that later. What a little bitch, she goes backstage and when people try to hug her, she says that she doesn't want to be touched and they should all just give her some space. I'm ready to give her all the space that she needs. Forever.
