Anyway, Nick says in an interview that he would probably have chosen someone other than Santino as a partner. He wanted Chloe, but Emmett snaked her before he could make his move. It's the designer version of cock-blocking. On closer viewing, though, you can see that Nick is looking at Santino before Emmett ever makes his move. So, I'm wondering if Nick is just saying that after the fact. Or he wanted Chloe to choose him and he was just waiting around. Don't be a victim, Nick.
Zulema interviews that Kara chose her. At the time she was trying to absorb that they were going to be on teams and thinking, "Oh my God, we have to team up. I don't want to team up with anyone. I just want to do this by myself." Again, way to pretend that you had no control over your situation.
After the teams are chosen, Tim tells them that they will have to decide 1) whose design to create, 2) whose fabric to used, and 3) whose model to use in the runway competition. Then everyone gets to work.
Diana interviews that her initial design idea was to create a pencil skirt where "the front part could flip back to reveal a slip." We see Diana remind Marla that Banana Republic is "minimalist" and "something you would definitely see at work." Marla says that they decided to use Diana's design because she was "very strong in her ideas." However, she adds that she is not totally behind the concept. This is totally the victim episode. Everybody is letting stuff happen to them instead of taking charge.
