The designers return to the stage. Ivy is safe. The winner of the challenge is... Emilio! Carolyn tells him that his outfit was spectacular. Anthony Ryan is in. Laura Kathleen is in. That means it's down to Kayne and Rayon. And, Rayon is...out. Rayon hangs his head in a genuine moment. Carolyn, who is seriously just the sweetest, tells him that he's so creative and he needs to harness just a little though they love who he is. He goes backstage and hugs everyone. He interviews that his interpretation of his elimination was that he's too creative. Yeah, that's the problem. He's sad to be leaving this soon, but he's still an all-star and all that. He says in an interview that all of the designers should rock the runway and make "daddy cat" proud. I'm not sure that I will ever really get over hearing that.
