At the top of the show, we get a solid six minutes or something of April's momentous move into the apartment with Valerie, Ivy and Gretchen. Seriously, natural disasters have gotten less coverage than this move down the hall.
Next, the designers meet Michael Kors at a dock and he tells them that they'll be designing resort wear for this challenge. Oh, fun. After they go to Mood and are back in the workroom, Tim drops the bomb that the designers will be working in teams of two and executing their teammates' designs. Mondo is stuck with Other Michael and is furious and kind of rude about it but ultimately apologizes for his behavior. Ivy and Cute Michael are together, and she's a total pill to him because he's not the master sewer that she is. That said, Cutie is completely expressive and makes me love him more than I knew I could. Casanova and Gretchen have some communication difficulties. Valerie and Andy work together, and Valerie has a crisis of confidence. April and Christopher seem to have a pretty successful partnership.
Kristen Bell is the guest judge. Makes no sense. A lot of the designs are really pretty special. Mondo, Casanova and Ivy are in the bottom. April, Andy and Cute Michael are in the top! Ivy slags on Cute Michael when they are on the runway, and he is super-gracious about it. Seriously, she's such a bitch. April wins the challenge! Casanova and Ivy are the bottom two. Ivy is... in! Casanova goes home. I'm going to miss him.

Previously: The designers were enlisted to transform some bridesmaids dresses into something not horrible. Other Michael won! If it weren't so exciting to watch the other designers freak out about it, it would not have been wonderful. But, it was. Peach, sadly, was sent home.
It's morning at the Atlas Building. April interviews that it was sad to see Peach go home, as they were roomies and good friends. She's wearing some little boy-short panties that make her statement about having a big butt seem ridiculous and untrue. What a cute bottom she has! Anyway, she tells us that she's moving into the apartment with Valerie, Gretchen and Ivy. She's a little uncomfortable, because she has heard of people saying that she's too young and shouldn't be on the show. Well, to that, April, I say eff that noise. We see Valerie say that it will be cool living with April, but she hopes they can "gel" with someone that much younger. She's a few years younger, not from a different species. Chill out, people. You're all fashion designers and therefore crazy. You have no business judging someone for their age. April says that the unknown is uncomfortable, but she's strong and doesn't take bullshit, so she's not really worried. As she's walking out of her old apartment, we see that she has written on the chalkboard in her apartment the following: "Peach...I miss you already. You are an amazing designer & friend. I can't wait to see you! L(heart)ve...your Ape Dawg :)" That is very sweet.
In the boys' apartment, Andy asks Other Michael how it feels to win twice. (Weird, I just had one of those brain things where the word "Michael" seemed super-foreign to me and I had to look back for how it was spelled. Brain, don't make this a habit). So, Other Michael says it's fabulous, and he feels like Gretchen. He interviews that no one was happy for him when he won the challenge. He says that it hurt him badly. OK, so there's something a little outsider-y about Other Michael. I mean, there's more to him being "other" than just not being Michael Drummond. But, it was ridiculous the way those people acted. I can't imagine being so nakedly unhappy for someone. The mannequins are like, "Strangle him in his sleep or get over yourselves. Two choices."
