Tim doesn't laugh, but he does say that he thinks judges Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Michael Kors and Scarlett will say the designers are "a bunch of slackers." Wisely, tablecloth-grabbers Leanne and Korto dress up their pieces with cookies and candy (Leanne) and vegetables (Korto). But not Jerry, the self-proclaimed next big thing in fashion. The 42-year-old doesn't want to ruin his look by piling on extraneous purchases. Oh, no, his raincoat made out of a shower curtain, which covers up possibly one of the worst dresses I've ever seen, will do just fine. I'm a sucker for cute jackets (perhaps that's why I'm such a big Jillian Lewis fan), but this coat, while well-structured, is uninspired and looks like, you guessed it: a shower curtain. It only gets worse when his model must pull on yellow rubber cleaning gloves. It looks like she's ready to walk a runway at a Superfund site.
A lot of the pieces on the runway are forgettable. I really hope that what we're seeing isn't an indication of this pool's talent. The vegetable trim is a smart move for Korto, who along with Daniel and Kelli, is in the top three. The bottom three includes Stella (no shocker), Blayne (ditto) and Jerry (double ditto). Kelli wins, but Daniel's cocktail dress is a close second. Korto gets recognition for being the only designer to use produce. And though she used a tablecloth, the yellow dress is impeccable. Blayne's Playboy-bunny-on-acid outfit is panned (to make matters worse, he's written "girlicious" on his model's leg! AND he thinks it's wearable for a night out on the town!), but he's safe. Stella's trash is trashed, but she, too, is safe. I figured as much, because the editing was such to make us think she was going home. Jerry is sent packing.
