Challenge Edit

Contestants must shop at a party supply store for materials to design their dress, and must not use any cloth in their dress.


Contestants are suggested to not use tablecloths or any other party materials that resemble cloth.


This episode's guest judge is highly successful fashion designer, Betsy Johnson. Gretchen becomes over confident and critiques almost everyone's looks, Casanova creates his look entirely out of table cloths despite Tim Gunn's warning, Andy South wins the episode with his gorgeous dress, and Sarah Trost is out for her trashy and less than impressive dress.


  • Casanova ripping away at the stuffed animals in order to steal their cotton insides
  • "Instant facewipe, napkin-dress" as a Betsey Johnson compliment towards Valerie's dress
