You would have thought an episode based around a Hershey’s Chocolate design challenge would have been chock full of nuts and great quotes…but it wasn’t. In fact, the quotes were the most lackluster of the season. Also unexpected this episode…Ricky did NOT cry!
We loved the challenge which was basically a child’s (or a chocoholic’s) dream come true. Five minutes in the chocolate factory (in this case, store) grabbing whatever you could get your hands on. Like Christian, I would have grabbed all of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Unlike Christian, I would have eaten them all until I was sick (the horror of watching him pitch them into the garbage for the brown paper wrappers!) For those of you who missed it; the challenge was to design a banging outfit using only materials found inside the Hershey store. Fortunately, there were many tacky stuffed pillows (Kisses, Kit Kats, Hershey Bars, etc.) the designers could use…rather than food products.
Yadda, yadda, yadda and bang! There were some great, quirky get-ups! The only cliffhanger was Jillian’s made of Twizzlers bustier and flapper skirt. No worries. She pulled it off and it was one of my (and the judges) favorites. My other favorites included; Kit Kat’s, Chris’, Christian’s and Rami’s.
In the end, Rami won and Elise was out. She thought her design was avant guard and the judges (and I agree) thought it was just brown and ugly. Sweet P had better get it together fast. She has treaded at the bottom far too long and will be next if she doesn’t pull something amazing off next week. It was a toss-up whose look was worse.
One more thing…what was with the stupid, affected walk Victorya made her model use on the runway? Her model looked like a milk maid on ludes. She should have been aufed on that alone!
