First, they call Peregrine and Nicole back to praise their imaginative and personal pieces. But only one of them can win, and it's Peregrine. Will tells her he doesn't often see art he wishes he'd made, but he felt that way about hers. She says the cool gay guys she was friends with as a kid would be proud of her. So, okay, she did awesome and I'm glad she didn't get eliminated last week. Especially since Erik just became an artist and wouldn't have had much on this one. Next, the losers come in. Jerry tells Jaclyn they were disappointed in how guarded she was. Bill tells Ryan he gave them something that looked like it was made by a child. China tells Abdi his piece was conceptually and visually bland. So one of them is leaving tonight. Abdi's safe. So it's Jaclyn or Ryan. And we all know it's Ryan, which is sad. He had the saddest story to tell, but obviously didn't get it across. He thinks Jaclyn's piece was worst and is sad to leave, but now he'll go back to making what he loves: realistic oil paintings that he won't have to explain to anyone.
Next week: They work in teams. Mark shows his nipples. Jaclyn does a private sexual act. It would be scandalous if it didn't happen every week.
DeAnn, a writer and editor in Portland, Oregon, probably likes Ryan more than anyone else on the show, but still isn't mad about this elimination like she was last week, because it was his own art that got him eliminated instead of someone else's.
