Nicholas tells Tim that he's trying to innovate with his design. Gretchen thinks he ripped off her winning design from the previous challenge. It's cut out in the back. Pretty similar. He's making some sort of cape too that Tim kind of poo poos. Then, he moves on to Other Michael. Other Michael has created this big blousy thing and Tim says that it reminds him of Blanche Devereaux. Sweet Jesus, that is amazing. Peach tells Tim that she's lost. He tells her that she actually chose the right fabric -- she just needs to do something with it. So, she starts over after he leaves. But, it doesn't really get any better. She makes a bubble skirt that is not her and even she thinks looks ridiculous.
Tim returns and says that there will be another element of the challenge. The next day, they will each have a photo shoot with a Marie Claire intern, er, photographer. The designers will be responsible for directing the shoot. Jason interviews that he's worried about not finishing his garment. The models are sent in for a fitting and Casanova asks Gretchen for her opinion. She clearly wants to tell him that she hates it, but doesn't want to give him any advice. He persists and she interviews that he would be annoying if he weren't so charming. She tells him later that he's her bosom buddy, but he doesn't understand and suggests that maybe they are "hips" buddies instead.
At the end of the day, Peach has something on the dress form, though that's not saying a lot. That night, Ivy, Gretchen, Sarah and Valerie have wine in their room. The guys talk about how quiet Jason is. A.J. finds him a little shady. Peach talks to her roomies like she's going home the next day. The other group of guys wonder where Mondo is. He's in another room by himself. He interviews tearfully that he hasn't found a connection with anyone here yet and he needs to talk to someone. I think he would get along with April. Or Kristin. He cries that he's never been loved as a person, only as a creator. That's DREADFUL. Seriously, somebody fucking hug Mondo right now. If you see Mondo, give that sad fucker a hug! Then, suggest that he talk to people if he wants to, um, talk.
