Rami was as close to crashing and burning on this challenge as I've ever seen him. The context of this challenge eluded him and took him too far away from his comfort zone. But that's precisely why we presented this challenge in the first place. At Spandex House, he chose a vibrant (that's an understatement) pink fabric that needed to either be fully embraced or rejected. Once it was back in the workroom, it was clear that it needed to be reckoned with. Rami battled with ambivalence. In the end, his client Torrie, another all-American girl, looked dowdy, if that's possible. The top looked voluminous, even accepting Torrie's ample breasts. The bottom, shorts with a removable over-skirt, looked like a diaper. Torrie looked like she was going to the WWE retirement home. Rami was way off his mark.
