Tim enters. He tells them that the winner of this challenge will have immunity for the next challenge. Andrae interviews that he would love to win since he has decided that his goal is to make it to the final four designers. There, he is hoping that God will "sort it out." I also hope that God has the chance to take a break from his busy schedule and make sure that Project Runway turns out the way it should. Forget Hamas -- who's going to Fashion Week?! Tim tells them to "Carry On" and he's out of there.
Kara says in an interview that she cannot "play it safe" for this challenge. Santino hopes that he will win, so that he could do something "really offensive" for the next challenge and still be immune. I couldn't really think of a reason to miss immunity, but that's it. If at least one person were designing each week without the judges in mind, some really cool stuff could happen. Commercials.
Chloe seems really confident with her design. Kara is having a harder time. She's braiding some grass, but is not sure what she is going to do with it. She says, "Now, I have a pile of green. The main thing I want to do with it is smoke it, to tell you the truth." Now, things are starting to make a little sense. Kara forgot her stash in South Africa. That's why she been such a pill a great deal of the time. Lady just needs a little refreshment.
Santino is using ferns and fichus to make his design. He wants it to be "pretty and sophisticated and sexy, but also definitely whimsical." That's a lot of things to be.
Daniel is doing his Jane Fonda while hot-glue-gunning some green stuff. It's kind of show-offy to casually work while in a two-thirds split. It's working, though. I'm impressed. He describes how he's going to make most of the bottom of the dress with ferns, but will use purple flowers on the bust line. Andrae is using "dead or half-dead things. Or things that would die beautifully." Dying beautifully is a lovely concept. But then he tells us that he's using baby's breath. I hate that flower, dead or alive. It's the penny of flowers. His design is based on late-1950s couture. The sketch is lovely.
Tim arrives to talk to everyone about their designs. He and Chloe discuss her leaf dress and she assures him that none of the leaves will fall off on the runway. He thinks it seems really ambitious, but Chloe seems totally relaxed. I have to say, several of the designers have grown on me this season, and Chloe is near the top of the list. She seems like the real deal. Plus she's a cutie and she seems like a genuinely kind person. I mean, she's had her moments of ragging on people in interviews, but it's always about the work. And she's always pretty much right. Anyway, loving Chloe.
