    Week 6: Ven's fashion makeovers--no fatties need apply.
    Challenge: Friends came on the show to nominate a lady for a makeover. The designers were to work with Johnny Lavoy, the hair stylist for L'Oreal Paris, to create a look for their client. They were given $150 and one day to finish their work.

    * Elena jokes around in the sewing room and is sweet and friendly with her client.
    * Fabio has a video chat with his boyfriend, Jason, and we get to see their kitty cat.
    * The designers talk about their siblings.
