Blayne says that he is an Olympic athlete in tanning, and "it only goes to bronze medal." He interviews that he's getting paler and paler and "by the end of the season" he will be frail and white. Because tanning also makes you strong? Also, I'm hoping that "by the end of the season" we will have spent several months not seeing Blayne at all. Korto asks him how he felt when they passed a tanning booth that day and he replies that he teared up a little bit. Jerell interviews that Blayne is "becoming tanorexic." He says that his blonde highlights are the only things keeping him alive. He'd love to see him with bronzer. Tanorexic is when you can't stop tanning though, right? So, why would getting paler make you tanorexic? Get your shit together, Jerell.
With seven hours remaining, Terri (who I just realized is from Columbus, Ohio-- same as Kelli!) says that she's making a jacket, vest, and pants. She interviews that she's updating the past. Leanne interviews that she is shocked at the number of pieces Terri has created. She thinks there is a sweatshop under her worktable. That's funny.
Jennifer interviews that she wasn't sure whether to go with a sporty design or stick closer to her own girly aesthetic. She decides to go girly. Now, I understand that these guys need to impress people with their own style, but the people this season are playing it so safe. They need to stretch a little bit. Her design will consist of a skirt, a camisole, and a sweater jacket. Very gladiator.
Daniel asks Stella why she's making her garment all in black. Blayne answers for her that it's because "we're in a depression." Insightful-- it's like reading The Economist. Stella says it's because black is modern and space age. Are we still that impressed with space age stuff? She says that she doesn't want to make anything soft. She says in the workroom that if the judges say anything about her design looking like a biker outfit, she will say that there are a lot of bikers in this country who watch the Olympics. This gets a big laugh from the others. Leanne says she doesn't think that Stella's design has anything to do with the Olympics. Instead, it looks like something you would wear to a Goth nightclub. Why do the two things have to be so different, Leanne?
