Tims Take

Plenty of drama behind the scenes!

Terri is OUT. She is teamed with Keith and they choose his sign, Leo, as their inspiration. From the onset matters between them were incendiary. From my observations and engagement with them, both parties were entirely too passive-aggressive in their behavior. From Keith's point of view, he had no incentive to combat Terri's dismissive attitude towards him, either. But Terri needed a partner (two heads and four hands should be better than one and two) if she was going to present a design that represented her team's best efforts. But let me talk about the design: When it was presented at the Rose Center, the gown had a faux fur stole with a high collar. The fur looked like chewed up and spat out road kill. Then, there was an unflattering bustle on the dress. (Who wants to look like they have a big fat ass?) Terri thoughtfully utilized the feedback that she received to edit her design. So, what she presented on the runway -- no fur and no bustle -- was infinitely better. Still, the judges balked. Terri, I feel sick about losing you.
