Tabatha professes her love for Dr. Flavio.

I have a secret crush...on Dr. Flavio. While it is true that he is almost 90 and uses a cane, he also embodies a lot of the traits I value in people in this industry. Flavio loves what he does, in fact he has so much passion for hairdressing and for teaching that at his age he is still showing up to his beauty school every day and walks the floor with the students. But he shouldn't have to. His presence and his legacy are clearly inspirational, but when I arrived at his beauty school, his faculty and students were anything but inspired. The teachers weren't teaching and so the students weren't bothering to show up. The students weren't even passing their state boards. The school's enrollment was down, and Dr. Flavio was in danger of losing his home and his legacy.
