Tim announces that they will indeed be sourcing their materials at a flower shop. Amanda is not excited about this. She says that she didn't even have flowers at her own wedding. I don't mean to be conformist, but that's crazy. Tim says that someone else has ideas about the challenge, and then he introduces Heidi. Why this woman needs a grand introduction every time she walks onscreen is beyond me. We EXPECT to see you, Heidi. Anyway, she comes out and says that she likes the flower shop but wants to mix things up. She likes the hardware store too. So, that's our 2-in-1. The teams will be using flowers and hardware to create cohesive lines of six looks. Heidi says that this is the ultimate hard and soft challenge. Tim adds that each look does not need to contain materials from both places, but the cohesive lines do. Heidi wishes everyone luck, kisses Tim and exits.
Tim says that there is concern about inequity in the teams now that Dream Team has lost so many members. Dream Team gets to choose two team members from Team Keeping It Real to join their ranks. Benjamin is excited because he feels that his team didn't work and needs a serious energy shift. He suggests to his team that they choose Stanley, because of his skill with construction. Michelle reminds him that Daniel has consistently been in the top, but Benjamin says that if he had to choose between the two he would pick Stanley. I wonder if that means something. I don't really think of Benjamin as a snob, but he is British. Why wouldn't he choose Daniel? Does he find something about him unworthy? Maybe that he is from Texas or that he's self-taught? I just felt a little something weird in the air just then. So, they have another person to choose. Michelle says that she will NOT work with Patricia. Wow. Michelle interviews that she finds Patricia very condescending. She thinks she talks for other people and maybe doesn't even know that she does it. You know, I think Michelle might just be frustrated because of the way this thing has gone so far. She's just lashing out because she hasn't gotten the chance to be praised by the judges. I hope she can process that a little, because she's becoming a bit of a drag. Samantha thinks that they should choose either Kate or Layana. She says that she knows Layana is fairly inexperienced, but she is sexy and young. Benjamin agrees that she has sexy ideas. Michelle also agrees that she has sex appeal. Plus, she says that she sees things (problems, needs et al.) and says something. If she sees something, she says something.
