Forte starts choosing models. Dayana and Aubrey are obvious choices. Debbie also thinks she would be a good choice because she's "accessible." Dayana notes that Debbie is definitely outside the 25-35 age bracket, and she says ridiculously, "I play younger on TV." Sixteen years younger? As pretty as Debbie is, she definitely doesn't look like the TV image of 25-35. She looks her age (41), if not a little older because of her thinness and makeup. Whereas Lisa is 50, but she doesn't look that much older. So, uh, yeah... no. Sorry, Debbie. The tasks get divided. Teresa will assist with taking photos that will hang in the display. Aubrey, Lisa, and Tia Carrere will build sets in Brooklyn.
The guys of Unanimous (Adam, Paul, Lou Ferrigno, and Michael Andretti) are also in set-building mode. Adam is especially at-home because he used to be a carpenter, but his enthusiasm and self-confidence begin to rub Lou the wrong way. Meanwhile, the ladies of Forte realize that the displays they envisioned and sketched would be overly crowded within the space constraints of their actual windows. They have to change their plans on the fly so the design doesn't look cluttered. They call Dayana for approval, and Debbie immediately notices that the split in locations is creating problems. Dayana is uncomfortable approving a design change that she can't see, and Aubrey thinks she should trust their judgment.
Lord & Taylor. The rest of the guys (Clay, George, Penn, and Arsenio) start with their on-site planning as the ladies of Forte (Dayana, Debbie, and Patricia Velásquez) hit up Ivanka's showroom to style their looks. Soon enough, the guys migrate up there, and Arsenio is pleased to feel like he is providing a sense of style that no one else on his team can offer -- especially Clay and George, who don't concern themselves with women's clothing because they're "not that genre of gay man." Eric pays a visit, and it seems to go smoothly. I must admit I'm kind of distracted because Eric is a giant. Much like Penn, he manages to make Clay (who is 6'1") look small. One notable moment happens when Eric asks Clay about George. An uncomfortable smile crosses Clay's face, which Eric immediately spots, and then Clay makes some comments about "picking up slack," and Clay tries to pretend like he's not trash-talking George but just because you don't say something explicitly doesn't mean you're not sending a message loud and clear. Eric interviews that George needs to lead his team or risk the task falling apart.
