Poppy gets back and talks with hair and makeup people, when Stephanie accosts her about the underwear. Apparently, Kelly and Poppy only got one pair of underwear (thinking the finale was just one guy, I guess), so Stephanie lectures Poppy about this being the most important part: "We need the lineup of naked men." I mean, who can argue with that? Stephanie tells Poppy she has to do something about this. Then she shit-talks with Mahsa about what an incompetent loser Poppy is. They're two peas in a pod, those two. It's more humor and less drama (for now) over at Octane. Anand, to a model: "You still have to get your hair done, right?" Model: "No. This is my hair now." Anand: "I like it. It looks great." Hee. Smooth. David practices his opening and closing, and Wade seems impressed. He's also happy with Gene's preparation.
Back at Fortitude, Brandy saves the day by buying eight pairs of black underwear. Then they rehearse for the fashion show, with Kelly instructing the models. Even Mahsa has something nice to say about her (for now). Liza notices a model in shorts has scabs on his legs, which she thinks is going to be a real problem. And just think: He'll also be wearing boxers later. Back at Octane, Gene's in slow-motion Gene mode. David wants to run through their speech, but Gene has nine more shoes to write about. David says he can't baby-sit Gene. When it's time to practice, David and Gene have no idea what they're doing. Catherine's watching it all, in horror. Gene left (probably to finish preparing the speech), but David says he just ran away. Clint thinks Wade better be worried, because this is going to be a disaster. What fun would it be for us if it weren't?
Fashion show. Everyone's seated when Trump shows up in a limo and walks the red carpet. Fortitude goes first. Brandy's well prepared and poised, but pretty boring. She talks all about Tristan's "Day in the Life," one outfit and pair of shoes at a time. Let me tell you: Tristan wears a lot of shoes in one day. Maybe they should have made it "A Weekend in the Life" or something. Backstage, the ladies are stripping the men down to their underwear and greasing them up. Kelly's worrying that this finale could undermine everything they've just done. The crowd reaction to the finale seems mixed, but Trump and Michael Rupp don't look happy.
