I thought the 2nd group should've had the same challenge as the 1st for a really fair comparison.

Oh my my.
So Mondo, what "certain red carpet event" is your winning designer's look ready for? Well I suppose if you are a cross-dressing construction worker, we now have a red carpet look for you. Can't wait to see which 'celebrity' they force...I mean convince to wear that.
Two words kept running through my head during the runway show: Hideous. Boring. And in some cases Hideously Boring. Though I did like Chan's pantsuit (just keep it away from Janet Jackson...).
On a positive note, it's fun to watch Tim have a conniption fit.
I didn't like any of the designs either. Any at all. I like that guy Shan (?), because he makes beautifully detailed clothes so quickly, but that cleavage was so offputting. I remember years ago one of the judges saying to Michael Knight that a "teaspoon" of cleavage was enough in such circumstances.
Nick really isn't getting the concept of a mentor. Mondo and Anya are both very quick on the uptake, and I can see how they will both be helpful, but their lack of mainstream experience might keep them from being really useful to their teams in terms of technical advice.
