Santino interviews that growing up in Missouri was hard for him because people thought he was weird. He tells us that he won't ever give up. Oh, Santino. I understand where he's coming from, but being treated like an ugly duckling in high school doesn't always mean that you're going to become a swan. There are, you know, just some really ugly ducklings that are still ducklings. And ugly. It seems like Santino feels entitled to success because he was an outcast in his formative years.
With three hours left in the day, Tim comes in. Chloe and Kara get a once-over without incident. Tim tells Santino that he really likes the colors that he has chosen. Santino says that he is worried about having enough time.
Scrambling and sewing to techno music begins. Gotta say, I don't know what it is, but sometimes I really love the worker-bee montages. As Kara is fitting a mock-up of the slacks she is making on Santino, he asks, "Are these space pants? Because my ass is out of this world." Touché.
Santino is worried that Kara is not going to have enough time. He asks her if she has cut the fabric for the pants, and she replies in the negative. Even though she explains that she's tired, he tells her she should cut the pants because he doesn't want to walk naked down the runway the next day. I don't really want that either, as it would likely send Heidi into premature labor. Hell, it would send Michael Kors into premature labor. But the pants being completed and naked Santino are not the two options. Why does he care? Let her fuck up, it's better for you. I have a feeling, though, that Santino is a little more concerned about looking pretty in his fancy new clothes than he's willing to admit. Kara is annoyed. "This is a challenge," she says.
As Chloe is fitting Nick for his slacks, Santino says, "You can't polish a turd." Am I immature for laughing at that? So be it. Whatever, Chloe kind of laughs too. In fact, you can tell she wants to laugh. She says, "That's so rude." But she's laughing beneath it. I'm just saying that I'm not the only one. Nick is not happy, though. I think it hurt his feelings. He says in his interview that Santino is always trying to belittle others. What, you don't have any material with which to get back at him? He's a insult waiting to happen! Fulfill his potential. Daniel chimes in, saying that Santino is talented, but arrogant and childish.
