Who's going to win? Let's see if we can figure it out from their carefully-worded interviews and other indications.
Michael said on The View that he was going to take his $10,000 fan-favorite money and spend it on a watch - he said a "chunk" of it, so I'm figuring either a Rolex or something else with major bling. He's also said in another interview that people can reach him in Atlanta if they want to hire him.
Sooo... we can look at this in a number of ways:
1. Michael didn't win - and since $10,000 wouldn't begin to help him design his own line, he decided to blow some of the fan-favorite money on bling and have a good time.
2. Michael didn't win - which is why he can be reached in Atlanta instead of NYC. Of course, Chloe stayed in Dallas... but she has no aspirations of going national; she's made that clear time and again.
2. Michael did win - and figured since he got the $100,000 grand prize, he could afford to blow some of the fan-favorite money on bling and have a good time.
