I don’t know, but maybe Daniel is slowly morphing into Blanche Devereaux. I just think it’s worth pointing out here in the middle beginning. Also, Michelle is aware of the fact that she has been a part of every losing team and she is the only existing designer that is true of. It was true last week too. Anyway, don’t like her.
On the runway, Heidi returns with the button bag. Whoever she chooses, Michelle will be joining that team. It’s hysterical, because Heidi chooses Patricia’s name and Michelle has not stopped talking about how she hates her. They go to some senior center to find out about the challenge. They are supposed to design a fashionable look for a mature lady. I’m so excited about this! Except, I’ll feel bad if anyone looks bad. Oh gosh, we’re in that part where I’ll feel kind of bad or surprised for anyone who goes home.
Amanda starts to freak out almost immediately in the workroom. She’s really confused and doesn’t know what to do. Samantha gets really tired of all of Daniel’s questions and it’s kind of funny to watch, because she’s such a sweet girl. The Michelle/Layana/Patricia triumvirate is not having an easy time. Tim comes in and hates Stanley’s, Kate’s, Tu’s, Patricia’s and Amanda’s looks. That said, he maybe leads Amanda in the right direction.
Patricia refuses really to take any of Tim’s advice. All the while, Michelle is interviewing about how much she hates Patricia’s work. When they get ready for the runway, it looks like for sure Amanda is going home. She hates her dress and is embarrassed. Joan and Melissa Rivers are the guest judges! And Rachel Roy is there instead of Zac Posen this week. She’s just as pretty. My impression on the runway is that Samantha’s and Stanley’s looks are the best. Amanda’s dress is indeed pretty bad. The top teams are Stanley/Richard and Samantha/Daniel. Tu, Amanda and Benjamin all get a lot of grief for their looks, while Kate escapes unscathed. Stanley wins the challenge! Benjamin and Amanda are the bottom two. Benjamin is out. Weird. I did not expect that. He didn’t either. He feels like the wrong decision was made, but he chooses to be graceful about it.

Previously: The designers created looks for Miranda Lambert, country superstar. Matt, our special dancer, lost his way. His self-confidence seemed to crumble and he was eliminated. Richard finally won his first challenge and was thrilled.
It's morning at the Atlas Building and Daniel says how quiet is was that morning without Matt there. Stanley, sans heart, says that it was kind of nice. Oh, he'll miss him, but it was kind of nice. The quiet. Daniel interviews very dramatically that he never wants to be in the bottom three again. Benjamin feels that his confidence has come back to him. Michelle feels like she has been very unlucky in this competition, though she doesn't give any consideration to the idea that her designs just haven't been good enough. She tells Amanda and Layana that they don't know what the production is going to do with her regarding teams, but she's putting it out there AGAIN that she doesn't want to work with Patricia. Yeah, we fucking get it. You can't shut up about it. She says that no one seems to see all of the huge problems with Patricia's designs.
Heidi greets the designers at Parsons and she's got that button bag again. She says that whatever name she draws will be the team that Michelle joins. And, in the hand goes and out comes the name of Patricia. I almost want to see if all of the buttons read Patricia, because it wouldn't be right any other way. Being the two-faced jag that she is, she is like, "Great!" to Patricia's face. Patricia interviews that she loves Michelle's design style and is excited to work with her. OK, you see? Maybe she's not the easiest person to work with but she's respectful and acts from a place of goodwill, I feel. She certainly hasn't been interviewed talking shit about people all of the time like Michelle. THIS is why reunion shows are important, producers! It's the one actual learning moment that can happen. I mean, at this point, do we expect to ever even hear from Season Whatever winner Leeann again? No. It's not the winning that will have a lasting impact, really. But, in this world where everyone is so eager to be the one that everyone else is watching, shouldn't there be at least SOME ramifications for the way you present yourself? I feel like Gretchen was the only person who ever got super slammed for being a bitch and she was really just annoying. This Michelle girl is a shit stirrer. She creates bad feelings. You can just tell. Anyway, she interviews that the judges seem something magical in Patricia and maybe some of that will rub off onto her. Not likely.
