Nick tells Chloe that the vest that she makes for him should be tight. She's really surprised by this, and chalks it up to her not knowing anything about menswear. I actually think they are having a difference in tastes. I'm starting to agree with the judges a bit about Nick's taste level. It seems like a lot of his ideas are just a little too much. Just too much flair? Too shiny, too busy, et cetera. Chloe interviews, cool as a cucumber, that she has absolutely no idea how to do the work involved in this challenge. She doesn't even know how to put her garment together because she never does menswear.
Everyone is impressed by how quickly Nick is progressing with his design. We see Daniel modeling the mock-up of the slacks. Looking pretty scrumptious. Nick doesn't think his speed is impressive. In fact, he thinks that everyone else needs to "catch up."
As the night grows older, Daniel introduces a little game of "Would you rather ?" He gives two options, and people have to say which of the options they would rather "do." Okay, this is kind of juvenile, but I still love it. Things like Daniel's love of Santino's Tim Gunn impression, and this, make me really like him. He is interested in other people and their creativity. That would seem to bode well for his future, not only as a designer, but also as a person.
Daniel's first "Would you rather...?" is " have sex" or " make love." Chloe is in the " make love" camp. Santino votes " have sex." Didn't see that one coming, did you? Daniel explains that "the Q and A doesn't just have to happen on the runway. It can happen in the workroom as well."
Nice sentiment, but it begins to all fall apart. Santino, seemingly starving for attention, starts to wig a little. Daniel asks, "What's a food that you absolutely dislike?" Nick begins, "As a young kid --" Santino interrupts with, "I got one. Yeah. Eating my feces is the key to everything." I don't really know what to make of that. Part of me is laughing a little bit about a story that begins with "As a young kid" being interrupted with someone talking about poo-eating. But then, I also find it kind of stupid. It really smacks of playing for the cameras, because it doesn't seem to have any meaning in the context of the workroom.
