I didn't see a thread for this one, so I thought I'd start one.
Thought tonight's challenge was really cool - create an alien for a recently discovered planet that could sustain life.
This was a team challenge, and the ones who worked as a team showed.
Please note, I don't want to totally spoil this episode by describing the designs.
And because I get Tate and Gage confused, I've put the teams where one or the other was in it and if they're backward, I apologize. That said both were good and the teams together were deserving of being safe or in the top three.
Loved Sam's and Tate/Gage's design. They had a creative design with their alien, but what kept them from top two I seriously think is that their foam didn't set up well enough (their fault) so it started coming apart when the judges did the close up analysis. I do think they'd been in the top two over the albino team's design had everything stayed together.
I loved Jo and Tate/Gage's winning design. They are right - silicone is a very heavy material, and the alien was lovely to look at. The painting Jo did was worth it. Now admittedly these two had issues, but Jo finally stood up and said "What do you want me to do" and she just did it.
The other top two design - which was a white albino alien, was nice too; however, I didn't think it was quite as creative as Sam's team's design. IMHO they got the top two because of the detail in the vein design.
The bottom two were well deserved - the lack of teamwork clearly showed.
Megan's team had horrible molding and painting.
Anthony and Frank's design was ugly. I felt horrible for Anthony because he did have a great idea, but because Frank didn't care, the result was bad.
And yes - FRANK went home!
The sad point - he too was just as excited, which made me mad. He essentially took someone's place in this show who would work hard in filmmaking design and did a half hearted job.
Or in short, he is the Osten of "Face Off" - basically quitting without actually having to go up and say "I quit."
Looking forward to next week's show. Pretty much anyone now I won't mind winning, but Megan and the teammate she had this week will have to improve their attitudes if they want to stand a chance of winning this.
