    I think Jerabai is going to win. I don't think he's ever been in the bottom 2. As for the bus challenge, I don't get why the judges thought that Tiffany did enough to have the best design. She didn't do anything on the back of the bus but just placed a hodge podge of plants. She even intended to cover it with curtains as a cop out because she couldn't think of a creative way to add to the back. I probably would have placed a custom curved seating bench around a large quirky bonsai tree placed on a pedestal with light around the base to make a stark background or maybe just two lanterns on the corners with a lighted candle inside.

    But if she wants pretty tree/plant...

    So she didn't do anything useful as to even place an interesting sculpture at the back yet the judges loved her unfinished work. It doesn't take 3 days to do her bus as she didn't do any custom work.

    Those are lovely but don't quite fit the Alice in Wonderland theme ? Perhaps thematic topiaries ... shaped like rabbits ... or clocks ... or hats ?

    She could even have kept it simple with swirly greenery to symbolize the hurricane?

    She also had a few hours to shop. IF she had had more time I would have filled up the back with a climbing ivy, or climbing roses in full bloom. I'm glad she did nix the red curtain, though. That would have added heavy to a light and airy table.

    Oh you're right! I didn't think of that ... I was stuck on green. But she originally did want something red and the roses would have been perfect.

    She didn't plan ahead enough. It happens to most of us.
