Matt then calls Paulo, who he apparently bonded with the night before. Paulo picks a navy halter satin gown. Gail then picks a red dress, Meredith picks a champagne dress, and Dee picks something silver and sparkly. So far there isn't actually a lot of focus on the dresses themselves, until Daniel comes up and interviews that he picked a dress with a woven bodice, which we can actually see. Charlie picks something I can't even see, and then Nekisa picks a sea-green number. Nicole interviews that Matt was trying to really mess with their heads, but quite honestly, it appears he was only trying to mess with Nicole and Glenn, as they were the last two, and he wasn't actually "messing" with them so much as it was giving them crap dresses because he doesn't like them. She reminds us that kissing up isn't her thing. There's a whole lot of repetition this week.
The clients come in and they are all tall and cute with long hair. Paulo wants to do something "textural" and over the top. Ah, Matt's dress is actually black. I don't know if you've heard, but he thinks it would look good on his wife. Charlie has a black gown with an asymmetrical neckline and doesn't want to do it all up because that's "obvious." Nicole -- in a byte clearly taken from a totally different conversation based on her clothes, hairdo, and makeup -- dismisses Charlie, saying he became a hair stylist because he likes fashion. She laughs dismissively and tells us she became a hair stylist because she couldn't afford special effects make-up school. (Ah, that explains the shiteous Short Cut hairdo.) It appears to not have occurred to her that this wasn't every other person's dream and career path as well. Once in beauty school, she was told she sucked and should quit, which made her try harder. It also clearly contributed to the attractive chip on her shoulder. Daniel is excited because he thinks maybe the guest judge will be a celebrity (not Campbell?) and shows some great self-awareness when he admits he'd freak out. "You saw my reaction with the Housewives, for God's sakes. I actually wet myself a little bit when I saw them." And while male incontinence generally is a turn-off, it makes me love him even more and want to get dressed up and have cocktails while watching trashy television together.
