Jerell, who really insists on showing his entire torso at all times, is getting ready. He interviews that he is the last man standing and, of course, he plans on winning it all. He's lonely though, so he draws faces on some fruit and pretends that they are Joe and Rayon. He must be in HEAVEN with the camera all to himself, this one.
At Parson's, Heidi comes onstage. It's model pickin' time. Katarina and Savara are the two girls on the chopping block. Korto stays with Katarina. Goodbye, Savara, we hardly knew ye. And I actually mean that. They've modeled like twice, right?
Heidi tells them that only three will compete at Bryant Park. She says that Tim is waiting to take them on a field trip. I'm over these things. Tim is in the lobby of Parson's and loads them into the van. Kenley interviews that she doesn't know what the next challenge will be. Why would she? I feel like the production folk make them answer that question and it's so completely pointless. Anyway, Kenley says that she needs to do well because she had a hard time in the last challenge. Tim, who is sitting in a section of the van with a silent Kenley (my favorite kind), asks what everyone is thinking. Korto says that she thinks it will be something like eveningwear or wedding apparel. I guess because it's the last challenge before they go home? Jerell jokes that the twist will be that the client is Hedda Lettuce and the materials will come from Gristedes. Everyone, including Kenley, laughs.
Eventually, the van pulls up to the New York Botanical Gardens. Leanne immediately thinks that she will have to make a dress out of flowers. Jerell's thinking the same thing. As they walk into the gardens, Kenley says that the wild colors make everyone feel like they are in The Wizard of Oz though I don't know how she could be aware of everyone's feelings since she's not speaking to any of them. Tim leads them to Collier Strong, who is waiting to deliver the challenge.
Collier is looking pretty good these days. Tim introduces Collier as the consulting make-up artist for L'Oreal Paris. Collier says that the garden is one of his favorite places in the city. The colors, textures, and the combination of the two give him a lot of inspiration. He reveals that the challenge is for the designers to create an evening gown inspired by nature.
