The next morning, they're all ready at 4:15. Jeffrey says that it's the most important day of his life and he has only had two hours of sleep. Dare I say that I think Jeffrey just had his cutest moment? He looks sort of adorable when he's really tired like that. Laura says as she's fixing her hair that she's glad Jeffrey's showing, because she wants to beat him on the runway, not in the accountant's office.
At Bryant Park, they walk into the empty tent where their show will be. Everyone's kind of in awe. Michael says that he used to watch the Fashion Week shows from home as a kid. All of the chairs have gift bags in them, with a copy of Elle poking out. Jeffrey is wearing pedal-pushers. He says that he wants to prove that he belongs at Bryant Park.
With two hours to go before the show begins, there's madness backstage. Everybody's making decisions and there's lots of hustle and bustle. Michael remarks that you only have one opportunity like this, so everything has to be perfect.
As the show gets closer, we start to see some of the eliminated designers arriving for the show, including Alison, Katie, and Angela. Everyone's families are in the front row. Michael tells all of his models backstage that they look "hot," and he's really excited.
