S13E2 “Movie Night”
By Princess Pindy
The designers wake up in the “Gotham West Apartments” and there waiting for them is popcorn and 3D glasses… they are going to a private screening in the East village…they think they are going to design for a celebrity or red carpet….wrong. They are all talking about how they too couldn’t believe that Sandhya won last week, lol.
They go to the East Village Theater which is an awesome theater. They are shown a movie trailer that seems pretty cool….until Tim shows up on the screen.
They are in teams of three, I don’t like team challenges. They need to make three separate cohesive looks…from movie inspired items. They have one day.
They can use tickets, candy, rope, all kinds of crap to make their look. They are like a shark in Sharknado 2 going for their items. The only restriction is that they have to be able to carry it themselves back to the workroom. This is an elimination challenge and Snadhya has immunity since she won last week (HOW?)…and people are still bitching about it in their talking heads (and on the internet.) I wonder if they will bitch about it the whole episode, lol. What do you think? I think yes!!
Kristine, Korina and Amanda are getting along…they are on the same page. Amanda has told them that they should make their own textiles. She is using her experience from Season Eleven. They are going for a futuristic look. Carrie, Sandhya and Hernan are on a team. we will see… They are not agreeing and there is trouble already. Hernan is bossy, IPPHO. Emily, Alexander, and Samantha seem to be working well together. They did a cool “scale” thing with CDs. Mitchell, Kini and Char are doing cocktail dresses. They are using movie tickets and CDs. Sean, Angela, and Fade, the guys want to do villains, they are using lots of straws…Angela wants to do an angel, the guys seem to be humoring Angela. But basically tell her no. Again she is on the edge…she is going to break, I swear. Angela’s confidence is low, Poor Angela.
Tim comes in and asks how everyone is and …dead silence. HAHAHA!!!
Sandhya’s team…they don’t like her look… Tim asks if the same customer would wear all the looks and that they are “costumey”…Not that there is anything wrong with costumes or making up words, IPPHO..lol Tim says, there no cohesion on this team…a designer is going to go home and it’s not Sandhya, that it will be Hernan or Carrie that is packing their bags… Tim is getting real, real fast!
IPPHO, it would be nice if Sandhya was more supportive of her team’s idea. But on the other hand, we have five fingers AND somebody has to go home… so who really cares what the other team members do….two schools of thought. Hernan tells Sandhya that she needs to follow what they are doing. Sandhya feels disrespected and is crying. Sandhya wants to talk to Tim alone. She tells him she is getting picked on. Tears so soon…I guess that everyone telling her that they are shocked that she won has gotten to her. Tim is encouraging and sweet and I would expect nothing less from him, lol. Well what do you know, after all that drama, it looks like Sandhya got on board with her team, or sold out, depending on your point of view. Carrie also changed her design due to Hernan’s insistence.
I don’t think this challenge shows how good a designer can be …it is just one of the things they do every season. One season it was trash….IDK…it is fun to watch what they come up with. I want to see them design real clothes…like on Top Chef, I want to see them cook real food…these challenges sometimes are ri.dic…IPPHO. But I guess the Team Challenge and Unconventional Challenge let us see the personality, creativity and see maybe their true colors. Mitchell is being nice to Sandhya….maybe I was wrong…it has happened before, I think… Angels is in big trouble, I think she is in over her head, unlike her dress that won’t go over her model’s head..Poor Angela.
The winner gets immunity on the next challenge. The judges are Heidi Klum, Zac Posen, Nina Garcia and guest judge Grance Dore, a Fashion Blogger. They are having an anonymous runway, judges won’t know whose look they are seeing. yeah, ok, like I believe that….so jaded.
I love that they all think they are going to be on top. Angela’s dress came out better than I expected, in that she had something to put on The Runway. I love Mitchell’s CD dress, it is so sparkly, with a good fit. The judges told Angela that she was safe but she brought her team down…Poor Angela.
WINNERS AND LOSERS
Amanda, Kristen and Korina’s team has the highest score and are the winning team. They used rope, nuts, film, duct tape, marquee letters. zip ties, etc. The judges give the winning team’s critique…Their collection felt the most cohesive. Heidi likes Amanda’s the best. Nina likes the color, bright green, and she likes the three different shapes of the dresses. The Blogger likes the flowing of Amanda’s dress. They send them back out to wait.
Now the losers come out, Sandhya, Hernan and Carrie. Their critique… All three dresses look alike. They used film and gold cellophane or something. They are trying to blame Tim for having three of the same dresses. That Tim’s critique was so bad, they weren’t cohesive, they had to start over. They only worked on it for four hours. Zac says, “No more excuses.” Nina tells Sandhya that she is lucky that she has immunity because her look is the worst. Zac says it looks like the editing floor, he’s trying to be funny cuz they are made of film…get it? Now Hernan and Carrie are trying to throw the winning team under the bus and Hernan wanted Angela to go home…Poor Angela…Nina is mad that Sandhya did so badly and so are Hernan and Carrie but not for the same reason…one or both of them is going to be out.
There goes Zac looking up girls dresses, lol, touching hair and anything else he can get his hands on. Tim throws Hernan under the bus and tells the judges that Hernan forced the women to do what he said. Tim is taking no prisoners this season.
IN AND OUT
Amanda is the winner. She has immunity for the next challenge.
Oh, they kicked Carrie out…that is sad. I liked her… Hernan is in…… Carrie is vocal about her disappointment that there was immunity. Immunity is a double edge sword on these type of shows. I would have rather seen Poor Angela or Sandhya go home and see what Carrie had to offer.
Here are the designs from the episode:
Don’t Be Tardy
S3E3 “Destination Destin”
Last week the limiting factor was applied to Kroy, so he will shoot blanks and the Biermann Bunch shall cease to grow.
They’re getting ready to go on vacation. Apparently Destin, Florida is the place of choice because it’s Spring Break and that’s where Brielle’s friends go. Kim is so excited as it’s her first time to Destin that she’s not been pregnant three years in a row. Sweetie wants to know if she’s on vacation and Kim replies it’s not your vacation! It’s our vacation sweetheart. Reminding Sweetie how she can still make calls and do this and that in Destin. Brielle and Adriana are bringing one friend each. Kim wonders out loud if she has enough luggage for 6 kids and Kroy says yes. Kim though, says it has to match and you can never have enough. Kroy is sure they have enough. She insists they need two new Louis Vuitton suitcases for the twins. Wait, for the 3 month old twins? Oh, now I understand why Kim kept having babies, to buy more stuff! Kroy said they don’t even need bags, we’re in an RV for heaven’s sake, its’ not like a plane where you have to check a bag. Kroy said she is not buying more luggage! She walks away and he asks if he’s heard. She didn’t answer him. She runs to another room and immediately calls her stylist Shun and instructs her which LV luggage to buy and she exclaims she “needs” them for the babies – don’t tell Kroy!
Later on, Shun arrives with all kinds of shopping bags in tow, including the specific luggage Kim wanted. Kim sees her in the driveway and enlists Sweetie to go out and help carry it in. Sweetie recoils when she finds out she is about to help smuggle in the LV luggage that Kroy specifically said not to buy. Sweetie doesn’t want to get in trouble, but as it goes, she’s the assistant and pretty much has to do as told. They were going to sneak in, but Kroy was now in the Kitchen, which is right off the entrance, so Kim acts like it’s any ole’ shopping trip and the LV suitcases are the best freakin purchase ever, for her babies. I’m sure the babies will love them Kim. He’s noting she didn’t have any regard for his wishes and he wants it returned. Why, she asks. Because you don’t wear it, you don’t carry it, I do – that’s why, Kroy says. He also tells Kim that she has something coming if she wants to keep this luggage against his wishes. She is mildly curious and he said, don’t worry, you’ll find out later if you keep it.
The RV bus arrives. Kim is feverishly packing and her staff is packing too. She proclaims she needs to have a vacation to get over the packing before starting the vacation! Excuse me, we know about needing vacations after packing, but you had help, girl! So the eight of them, plus camera crew, the two friends of the older girls, Lana and the housekeeper are loaded up, I’m not sure where they put everyone, but I think later I spotted the housekeeper at their destination. Sweetie is following behind in a fully loaded Escalade, and I mean fully loaded with baggage! Brielle said the RV is claustrophobic!
At pit stop, Kim goes in the store and is asking about what are the popular scratch off tickets. Kim explains that there are no casinos in Georgia, so she gets her thrills with scratchoffs. Poor Kim, having to settle for scratchoffs. Boo hoo hoo. The clerk said someone won millions on these, he saw it with his eyes, so Kim of course, needs a roll of those. She purchased $1240 in lottery tickets. I have some things, I’d like to sell Kim, now that I think of it. Her girls seem embarrassed, actually their eyes were wide and commenting about how their mother gets “in the zone” with her gambling, especially the online gambling and there is no stopping her. Kim said, in a TH, that she took a really big hit in the Bahamas, to the tune of $250,000 and how she plays big to win big. I believe those statements were said said separately in TH’s, but when I combine them, it sounds so foolish, as if she plays big to lose big. Chuckles.
Back on the road, Kim says they should have rented a jet. She was sitting strangely forward in the front captain’s chair, maybe it’s all the damage the twins did making their entry into the world. Once Kim has the scratchoff tickets, she settles back in her captain’s chair and goes at it frantically. Her girls talk about how their mother attacks those cards, ruining her manicure, scratching like she’s mad at them. Kim is not getting winners and has her choice words about it. Kroy giggles as she complains about her loser tickets and how she should have bought a couple of thousand more. I love this giggle of a laugh Kroy uses in all his banter with Kim and I’m thinking to myself, who has the time of day to scratch those off?! Oh, maybe that’s another reason she has so many kids!
Kroy said she has to go camping in the woods. She’s not believing her ears! Yep, that’s what she gets for buying that luggage and making him carry it all. She goes back and forth with him about she is NOT camping. They get to destination Destin at 1am and Kim complains about unloading. You all will be happy to know she brought at least 4 wigs in large Rubbermaid containers, that I’ve also seen toted into the woods in a preview. Not to jump ahead to next week though, they are at the beach now and the morning brings rain. I was on a beach for my honeymoon and all it did was rain, but that wasn’t so much a problem as it would be for a family who were there to play on the beach!
The next day, it was so very rainy again. Kim calls it a “mood killer”. They were held captive to play games and such in the condo. By the evening of day 3, it starts to clear. Ariana wants to go see her friends, which was not explained, but I assume if Brielle has friends on Spring Break in Destin, probably so does Ariana.
Brielle wants to go to meet friends. Brielle changes clothes in a very sexy looking outfit, that Kim questions a bit, but off she goes, she is “is zipping out”. Kroy said she has to be back by 12 or he’ll make her sweep up their beach until all the sand is gone. She leaves and Kim said about how good Brielle is and bragging about she’s not done drugs, drank or had sex. All Kim’s friends say she’s lucky to have such a well behaved one. Kroy disagrees that she’s that innocent. Kim gets furrowed eyebrows and starts asking questions. He said, “you don’t know everything she does”. Kim doesn’t like the fact Kroy is doubting her daughter. She trusts her. They talk. Kim said, “I’m not dumb, I don’t think she’s done those things!” Kroy, said “Okay, she’s perfect.” with a shrug and walks off, giving up any further argument.
Next week we find out if Brielle will have to sweep up all the sand on the beach and witness the Biermanns trying to put the paparazzi in their place as they try to enjoy their vacation on the beach.
