The next morning, to the strains of the shit's going down music, Christian interviews that they first thing he felt when he woke up was nerves. They head for Bryant Park. They get there before daylight. Rami says that being at Bryant Park during Fashion week is like "standing directly in front of the heartbeat that pumps the bloodstream in the fashion industry in this country." That's a mouthful. They go into the empty tent and are in awe of the place. They all hug. Christian remarks that the runway is really long, perhaps resulting in a 45 minute fashion show. Jillian feels like she is officially part of the fashion industry.
With 2 hours before the beginning of the show, they all start scrambling and fitting and whatnot. A couple of Christian's models were late. Their teams of dressers were helping them as well. With one hour before the show, the audience starts arriving. We see Laura Bennett! And Andrae!! And Jack with that chef guy! ["Dale! Siiiigh." -- Joe R] Christian is still waiting for a model and he's looking a little frazzled, but still okay considering the circumstances. There's Jay McCarroll. Ew. And Kayne of Many Colors!! Rami is greeted by Fern Mallis, the Senior VP of IMG Fashion. She tells him that he "deserves" to be there. Finally, Christian's model shows up just as Sister is about to mess up her mascara. He bounces back though and the model apologizes.
Nina and Michael takes their places by the runway. And, um, that's Posh Spice sitting next to them. Yes. And, no. Rami reminds us that he's living the dream he's had since he was five. Christian says that this is a make-or-break time, because he needs the prize money from the show to start his business. He hair sprays his do and he's ready to go. Jillian says that she looked at her models all ready to go and though, "I did it." She says that she started to feel a little choked up, but I think she means that relative to her normal dryness. She maybe smiled a little bit or something.
The show is beginning and Heidi takes to the runway. She introduces Nina, Michael (in sunglasses), and Victoria Beckham. Posh gets some huge applause. Jillian enters the runway and tells everyone that she hopes everyone is inspired like she was. And, the show begins.
