Some people are popping in without being introduced. Here's a dude named Stanley and another named "Two?" There's a lady named Cindy and a guy named Matt from New Orleans. Here's Benjamin Mach. He is 35 and from Sydney. He tells us that he is currently living in London and he moved there with 300 pounds in his pocket and a dream. That's stupid. There's no way you could settle in London with that small an amount of money. Is he not counting what was in his checking account? In that case, 300 pounds is actually a lot for just pocket money. He says that his aesthetic is faded glamour, something beautiful but tarnished. That lady Cindy is 59 and from Kent, Washington. She tells us that after 23 years of running a funeral home with her husband, she went to fashion school. Well, I mean, she could make strictly clothes for eggplants and you would have to let her on the show with that story. If I ever hear that there is actually a person who dresses eggplants, I will do my best to destroy them. Emily says to Cindy that she would never have guessed that she worked in a funeral home because she seems so upbeat. Lame stereotype. In fact, I would imagine that people in funeral homes have to be super genial to help their clients get through the tough time that brought them to the funeral home in the first place. She laughs and interviews that there is no connection between her job at the funeral home and as a designer. Gotcha. She says that being at the show feels like a rebirth for her. It's almost like a religious experience. Now I know that her backstory as a funeral director makes it sort of impossible not to cast her, but I wish they would cast older people who seemed more like contenders than ringers. Bert seems like the only truly viable older contestant that has been on the show.
