So disappointed, but also bot very surprised.

Once again, in a scripted challenge (semi-scripted? clearly part of it was on the teams to create themselves) one role has a definite advantage and another has a disadvantage. The DIY roles were uniformly praised, while the entertainment correspondents struggled (with the exception of Cynthia).

Surprisingly few actual nighties for the "naughty nightie" runway.

Completely agreed with Shea and Sasha winning. They had fantastic rapport and chemistry together.

Bottom two was appropriate. The leader takes the fall when the team goofs up badly, and Charlie stood out for all the wrong reasons.

Simultaneously a fantastic lipsync and a heartbreaking one. Especially with Cynthia and Shea yelling at Charlie to perform already!

I thought it was heartbreaking too! At first I thought it was the shoes, but she just gave up, which is a shame.

Fierce performance from Trinity, she earned her spot with stars and stripes. I wasn't a fan of her this episode but she redeemed herself.

I continue to be impressed with Valentina - the way she handled herself around Aja (who was really giving Veruca Salt) was so mature, especially for someone her age and with her looks. Did we ever find out what her weird disorder was though?

I did like that Aja checked herself and came around to apologise. Hopefully she will up her ante; I want to see what all the fuss is about!

Still a fan of Nina, but I too worry!

No, whatever Valentina's disorder is got derailed by Eureka being rude and Sasha calling her out for it. What an odd exchange that was! Sasha handled it very well though.

Agreed on Nina. Bursting into tears before your critique even starts?! This does not bode well.

I thought that Shea and Sasha had wonderful chemistry, and deserved their win.

While it was entirely valid that she was in the bottom two, I was so sad about Charlie going! I had very much hoped that she would last through Snatch Game. I'd love it if they brought her back for that.
