On the right we have Thurston, who came into this challenge with a huge chip on his shoulders.
And on the left we have Ping, who came into this challenge with her head barely attached to her shoulders.
Believe it or not, we side with Jesse on this one. We adore Ping as a contestant, but imagine how Jesse must have felt when he realized he had to work with her, especially after that monstrosity she sent down the runway last week. Admit it, you'd be scared too.
Granted, he could have been more diplomatic about it and there were a couple times where he stepped over the douche line, but for the most part, he was just trying to save his own ass by getting her to focus on the issues with her garment. Issues which, by the way, he was completely 100% correct about.
And while she seems like a sweetheart, she's also annoyingly scatter-brained. What can you say about a person who constantly forgets to put shoes on? How do you forget to put shoes on?
Not to mention, she just shut down and pulled the "I'm the team leader!" card every time Jesse voiced an opinion. No, kittens. Ping was clearly the one in the wrong here. If she'd been smarter, she would have tried to make this a true collaboration. Jesse hasn't exactly wowed the judges yet, but between the two of them, they could have come up with something safe, at the very least.
Then again, Ping's clearly not one for playing it safe.
Duchess nailed it when she called it a "Statue of Liberty" dress.
They could have taken that bodice and attached a real skirt to it to make something passable.
Instead, Ping got all Ping-y and went for the "pinned and draped" thing she does. That's fine when you want to express yourself, but this was meant to be a high end look and high end looks should shoot for something more than just "pinned together."
And it was just so weirdly impractical. No one wants to carry their skirt or sling it over their shoulder all night.
Here's what we don't get. Jesse should have just said, "Go make your lace toga. I'll get this one." and left her alone. That way he could have focused all his attention on this look to save their asses.
Instead, it looks like he continued to bicker with her and churned this out at the last second without putting any thought into it.
Awful. It's a nothing dress, badly executed.
But wait! What's this?
NO ONE CARE WHAT MODELS THINK. STOP SPEAKING.
We'd bet a donut that she was put up to it. They're really trying to sell that Models of the Runway show, so now suddenly all the models are going to become backstabbing bitches. We're not sure what to think of that. It could be entertaining, but it's really not the role of the model. The judges shouldn't care what they think or even ask them about it.
Anyway, it's so long, Ping. We of course knew it was coming, but we were happy to have her lunacy in the game for a little while.
