Bryce tells the judges that he used all pee pads. Michael is sick of "ugly napkin clothes." It never works, but Bryce fudged the styling too. Heidi doesn't think he manipulated the materials at all. Also, she doesn't know where his girl is going.
Everybody is digging Anthony's design. Nina loves the dramatic neckline and the tailoring. Olivier explains his design. Nina loves it. She finds the shape simple, yet dramatic. Michael thinks it's a very interesting use of materials. Stacy loves it. No one is digging the weird eyebrows.
Josh C. gets slammed for using conventional materials. Nina doesn't think it's terrible, but she thinks he was too safe. Josh M. gets praise. Nina loves the shape of the skirt. Heidi loves it too. Michael thinks he went overboard with the styling. Heidi is not excited about Fallene's silhouette. Stacy and Nina think that the accessories hurt as opposed to help the look. She agrees with them about everything -- she's not excited about it. Michael thinks it looks dated.
The judges confer. Heidi says that Bryce's outfit was one of the worst she has seen in a long time. Michael felt that Fallene was boring. They think that Josh C. played it too safe. They loved Josh M.'s top and all of the aquarium jewels. Nina loved the pattern of the top but she thought his styling was off. They loved Anthony's look except for the length. Stacey liked Olivier's dress, except for the fit. Heidi and Nina don't agree about who is best.
The designers return to the stage. Olivier... is the winner of the challenge! He has immunity for the next challenge. He goes backstage to applause. Heidi tells Anthony that his dress was her favorite. Josh M. is in too! Bryce...is in? What? This is stupid. It's down to Fallene and Josh C., both of whom were better than the dude who just walked away. Josh is... out. He puts his face in his hands and it's really sad. Fallene goes backstage and starts crying, which she says she never thought she'd do. Josh goes backstage and it's very tearful. He's a sweetheart. Even Tim gets choked up. Boo. I hate it when the good ones go home too soon. Josh says he's still going to try to make an impact. Good luck!
