The designers were asked to design and create their own print fabric as the basis for their looks.
Designs I liked: Seth Aaron, Maya, Emilio (winning design), and Jay Nicolas
The plot revolves around the world's #2 supervillain, Gru (Steve Carell), the former #1, whose evil attempts are always thwarted by Vector (Jason Segel), a super smart teenage nerd, who is the #1 supervillain. In an attempt to outdo Vector, he starts plotting to steal the moon while he hides underground in a suburban neighborhood living with his idiotic minions which look like genetically altered Corn Pops. His plot is jeopardized by three orphaned girls who see him as a prospective father.
The movie has multiple trailers - go catch all of them on youtube. These are the two more interesting ones!
It was a double elimination this week, so it doesn’t really matter which tribe won. The villains merely got to eat hot dogs.
Rupert’s choices: To keep James, who wants to be in the game badly, or keep Colby, to eliminate the stronger guy James.
James’ strategy: He thought clinching a victory in a footrace against JT would keep him secure. Obviously, his plan failed, as he miserably lost the race to JT.
ELIMINATED: JAMES [HURRAY!! YES! YES! YES! YES! Colby’s still safe!!!]
General consensus initially: Rob, Tyson and Sandra votes Russell; Courtney, Coach and Jerri votes Parvati.
Tyson’s gameplan: He wants Parvati out at all costs. He stupidly listens to Russell and switches his vote to Parvati the moment Russell says he will not use the hidden immunity idol on anyone.
Russell’s strategy: Worked out magnificently, and together with Parvati and Danielle, they successfully eliminated Tyson, who totally self-jacked himself. Tyson proclaims himself a victim of his own stupidity, yet he still describes himself as ‘awesome’. What??

The models were split into two teams and their knowledge about fashion were put to the test. The winning team (Raina, Krista, Angelea, Simone, Jessica, Alexandra) received a $500 gift certificate at Bluefly.com, while the person with the best go-see (Simone) received a $2,500 gift certificate, clinching a feature in the Spring campaign of Bluefly as well.
Dance was the theme of the photo shoot, and the ladies were required to demonstrate some fancy footwork.
Photos I liked (clockwise from left): Angelea - Moshing; Alexandra - Breakdancing; Alasia - Interpretive Dance (winning photo); Raina - Jazz
Ren is mad. She joined the competition just to please her mum, and she was so damn bloody honest about it in front of Tyra. That’s what got her eliminated.

Task: Run a Kodak Storefront
Project Managers: Maria Kanellis (Tenacity) and Sinbad (Rocksolid)
Winning team: Tenacity [Maria raised $20,000 for her fonudation, Make a Wish Foundation]
Reasons for win: . They seemed to promote the product more than the men which is what the Kodak presidents were looking for despite numerous power outages that threatened them during the walkthrough.
Losing team: Rocksolid
Reasons for loss: While the men were praised for using their celebrity power (such as Darryl posing in a New York Mets jersey) with certain people the men missed the bill on getting the product out to the customers and also lost because of a card that had a website to find the pictures that were taken at the store: the website was nowhere to be found on the card, according to 2 secret shoppers that shopped at the men's storefront.
Final boardroom: Sinbad, Bret Michaels, Rod Blagojevich
Fired: Sinbad for not leading well as the team leader and for not being able to manage Bret, who disappeared for the first part of the task. Sinbad was criticized for the website card as well and also was fired for bringing Rod Blagojevich in when he was not responsible for the loss.

Crystal Bowersox – ‘Me And Bobby McGee’ by Janis Joplin
She is one true competitor and a performer who puts on a good show for the audience every single week. I love how she develops after every performance – such a joy to watch. She is definitely in a different league compared to the rest.
Lee DeWyze – ‘The Letter’ by The Box Tops
This was an interesting song choice which seems pretty unknown, but his performance managed to captivate the audience. The confidence and voice control were there, but perhaps he did not seem as relevant as he should’ve been, considering how he should have picked a very current or classic song for a theme like Billboard #1 hits.
Siobhan Magnus – ‘Superstition’ by Stevie Wonder
Wow, she has a whole string of instrumentalists supporting her. She knows that she has to shriek every performance to get the crowd gaga over her, so that last chain of screams was pretty strategic. She should try something different if she wants to go much further, ie Top 3 or something.
Katie Stevens – ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’ by Fergie
I applaud her for actually choosing a contemporary song. While she may have bombed ‘Breakaway’, she certainly redeemed herself a little with this performance. Her voice got very strained halfway into the song, but all I can say is she gave a valiant effort. Dakota Fanning of American Idol, LOL.
Casey James – ‘The Power Of Love’ by Huey Lewis and The News
I thought he was going to sing Celine, but I guess they just share the same song title. Like Crystal, he’s authentic. Indeed, one of the better vocals of the night, but I thought you could hear this in a bar or something.
Aaron Kelly – ‘I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing’ by Aerosmith
Miley finally found a contestant younger than herself. He’s proving to be getting better and better - no more weird stage awkwardness (though he obviously can be more confident).
Michael Lynche – ‘When A Man Loves A Woman’ by Percy Sledge
I refer to him as Mr. Cliché. He’s just the velvet teddy bear who just sings well and makes it safe through every single week with his romantic and cheesy songs. I was so glad Kara exposed his strategy – overindulgence! So old-fashioned, 2000 and late.
Didi Benami – ‘You’re No Good’ by Linda Ronstadt
Once again, it was a weird song choice. I thought she was quite into her groove, but the judges may be right when they said that she was playing a certain role. I hope she isn’t in danger!!
Andrew Garcia – ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine’ by Marvin Gaye
Mr. ‘Straight Up’ will still be remembered as Mr. ‘Straight Up’. He is messing up big time. Yawn.
Tim Urban – ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’ by Queen
Before I begin the critique, I would like to point out that Miley is a joke. To be honest, I’m still darn stunned his looks managed to pull him through to these stages. He was slightly better than Paige, but that was another epic fail. I’d rather he stay over Paige, because he’s rather entertaining.
Paige Miles – ‘Against All Odds’ by Phil Collins
If you’re choosing an epic classic like ‘Against All Odds’, you have to sound FANTASTIC. She was pitchy and cracking all over the place, and her interpretation was plain awkward. Please, let me see her gone by my next book-out. This is a waste of space.
Bottom 3: Tim Urban, Paige Miles, Katie Stevens
Eliminated: Paige Miles (YESSSS.)
The guest performers were a triple threat: Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Joe Jonas. Demi Lovato pleasantly surprised me. She could actually sing.
This is a shout-out to all Section 4'ers, to say that we share a lot of things in common.
1) We are always the last section to draw and send arms.
2) We are always the furthest section from the toilet (ie the last section to bathe and poop)
3) We are always the last section to march during route marches.
4) We are always the last section to shoot during Range.
5) We are always the last section to board the bookout bus.
Today, the worst occurred:
We didn't manage to throw our 'water bombs' as those before our turn malfunctioned and we needed a machine to repair those water bombs. They ran out of machines and as a consequence, we are supposed to return on Saturday to continue throwing our water bombs. We get the brunt of something we did not do. That was absolutely annoying! What's more, we didn't get to eat dinner. Brrr.
[Sounding so indirect because there are limitations as to what I can type here. Tell you guys more when I see you. ROARR.]

The designers were asked to create looks inspired by a distinctive New York City neighborhood.

20 March 2010
People whom I care for:
Bottom 3: Paige Miles, Tim Urban, Lacey Brown
Eliminated: LACEY BROWN (sigh.)
P.S The elimination song (Will Young's 'Leave Right Now') is so evil! 'I think I better leave right now, before I fall any deeper.' HAHA oh god.
Miss Jay is no longer a judge this season. Replacing him is editor-at-large of Vogue, Andre Leon Talley.
This episode’s editing seems really poorly executed, with so many abrupt transitions!
Outstanding photos (from L to R): Jessica and the shorts; Angelea (resident bitch who takes great shots) with the shoe; Ren with the hat; Raina with the ring.
Winning photo: Jessica
Alasia is a freaking drama queen! “She looks preggers” LOL. Her catwalk was a joke too. So is her laugh. Alright, she’s a joke. Why does Andre keep backing her up?
Alexandra, the self-proclaimed competitive model, fell twice on the runway. Like oh my god.
Outstanding photos (have to look fierce despite the cold) [From top anticlockwise]: Raina (was smizing in her photo) , Tatianna and Krista
Winning photo: Raina
Eliminated: Naduah (WOW. VERY SHOCKING. The bald head with the strong personality is gone in a double elimination episode!)
The re-enactment of the battle scene in the trenches seemed so exciting, but reality isn’t like that, obviously. What’s more, the contestants didn’t even put on their LBVs, and they’re whining about the heat and smoke! What is this!
There should be more Dans and Jordans in the army. They add so much more colour to life LOL.
It’s amazing how Joe can still race despite that busted leg. I mean, I can’t last a 12km route march with like 10 blisters on my sole, but he can. He’s not that smart though; his big mouth resulted in he and Heidi getting U-turned by Louie and Michael. Sadness. They get eliminated because of that. Poor Heidi.
QUOTES OF THE DAY:
“Smart people do morse code. Dumb people do this.” – Carol and Brandy on their wrong Detour choice.
“Put your boobs on the ground and drag ‘em over there.” – Jeff on Jordan. Fortunately, they are still in the race. More entertainment for the viewers.
14 March 2010
Louis will be away from 15th March to the afternoon of 20th March. This time, he'll be able to Twitter, save for the days between Tuesday and Thursday!
