For their challenge, the designers are asked to create an outfit for Macy’s INC brand. To mix things up, the designers get to pick models again. In another twist, Tim Gunn tells the designers that they will be working in teams of three. The designers are given thirty minutes for sketching. After presenting their sketches, Mehmet Tangoren from Macy’s chooses Robert, Bonnie, Keith, and Angela as team leaders. For their reward, Tim Gunn tells the designers that the winning design will be put in production and sold at Macy’s worldwide.
Kayne tells some of the other designers that he saw some pattern making books in Keith Michael’s room. Kayne decides to go to the producers. Tim Gunn reveals that in addition to the books, Keith also left the show for several hours and used the Internet. Because of the rule violations, Tim Gunn asks Keith to leave the show. Keith says “My image has been tarnished forever. I’m off the show, and I’m going to be a laughing stock to my friends.”
For the competition, the judges are Vera Wang, Nina Garica, and Mehmet Tangoren. Keith’s former team of Jeffrey and Alison and Angela’s team are given the highest two scores by the judge, and Angela’s team ultimately wins the design competition.
Bonnie’s team and Robert’s team are given the two lowest scores by the judges. The final two up for elimination are team leaders Robert Best and Bonnie Dominguez. Heidi Klum tells Robert that his outfit was a total bore and Bonnie that her outfit was stale. Then, Heidi says “Bonnie, you’re out.”
