AFTER: Danielle's entry table vignette.
All I can say is, wow. Why is Miera suddenly crazy bananas, and how on Earth does Danielle manage to remain composed when dealing with crazy partner after crazy partner? First Luca, now Miera? I’m ready for Danielle to sink her teeth into another solo challenge so we can see her do her thing. Instead, we see her running around behind Hurricane Miera, who is wreaking havoc everywhere she turns. Miera makes one screw-up after another, all the while looking around dumbfounded, like someone else is to blame for her mistakes. I cringe every time she talks to Danielle.
Miera oddly decides to design her built-ins short of the ceiling height and because of the time constraints she ignores from the start, the bookcases are left dripping with wood glue, among other travesties. I’m having flashbacks to seasons past and the many poor homeowners who’ve been left with unfinished kitchens. Danielle spends so much time cleaning up after her teammate that she doesn’t complete her art wall. I appreciate her wanting to get the built-ins done for the homeowners’ sake but Miera’s the one who should be outside rolling paint on shelving. I don’t really see that dramatic a difference between the before and after photos, to be honest. Some accent color could save this space.
For me, it’s really a tie between Mikel and Hilari for the win. There are three facing elimination this week: Miera, Danielle, and Rachel. While we’re waiting for the judges’ decision to be revealed, Candis (Room Fu’s design intern), Phoebe, and I are chanting, “Please pick Miera, please pick Miera.” It is hard to take someone seriously for this hosting job after they berate a teammate, so we breathe a sigh of relief when the judges send Miera home.
