The problem, though, is that their time to photograph starts at 5 PM that day and Uli doesn't "even have an idea of a dress." She's in trouble. Tim says that the photographs that they take should convey the story that their look is telling.
Okay, so Uli starts busting ass. Jeffrey isn't worried. Michael is in bad shape. Laura's dress was done four weeks ago.
Then, in what appears to be a last-ditch effort to humanize Jeffrey, we see him getting a videophone message from his girlfriend and son. It's Father's Day. He does that "I'm on a reality show and I just saw my family, now I'm going to cry" thing. He doesn't really cry, though, and I appreciate his restraint. The kid is cute. He interviews that his clothing business supports his family and that's why he's on the show -- to support them more. This whole experience is very high-stakes for him.
As everyone is scurrying, with only an hour before the models arrive, we see Laura working in front of a picture of her brood. I'm a little surprised she's so sentimental. Uli asks her if she's tired of beading. "I'm tired of living, what are you talking about?" That's what the picture's for -- to remind her of what she's really tired of.
It looks like Uli is making a lot of progress. She interviews that she likes the pressure of deadlines. She's able to not think so much.
Laura thinks that Jeffrey has taken the biggest risks in this challenge. She mentions that Jeffrey himself thinks that his design is par for the course. She's not sure if Jeffrey's design really describes Jeffrey as a designer. Jeffrey interviews that he is always worried about being in the bottom of any challenge, but particularly this one.
At five, Tim brings in the models. Uli describes for Nazri the first version of her dress, which was much longer than the current version. Michael says that he is fine with the switch in models, because he believes that Clarissa is just as good as Nazri. He's wrong about that. His gown doesn't have straps on it, so he's pinning them on. It sounds like he still thinks he has a chance of winning this challenge. Laura says that she was exhausted from beading her dress, but it looks "accomplished."
Tim enters to take the designers out to shoot their models. Michael takes Clarissa to the lobby of the Atlas Building, because he wanted something lounge-y. No. I can't wait to describe this damn dress. Michael says that his dress "demands to be seen." Indeed.
