Your OWN Show: Oprah’s Search For the Next TV Star airing on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) welcomed Daisy Fuentes this week. As the guest mentor for the “Do It With Style” episode, Daisy was brought in to help the remaining six contestants write, direct and edit a thirty second Kohl’s commercial and was the guest to be interviewed.It was also announced that Kohl’s will be the sponsor of the future winner’s own TV show. The finalists were given models to work with and only 24 hours to get it done!
Both teams struggled with deciding who would take on each task. Team Vision made up of Elizabeth, Terey and Kristina selected Kristina as the executive producer while Terey was the talent and Elizabeth hosted the interview. The power struggle among the women continued as Kristina fought to have control over Elizabeth on making crucial decisions for the commercial. Terey did a fantastic job in the commercial. During the rehearsal for the interview section Elizabeth asked Daisy if she wanted to do parts of the interview in Spanish and Daisy said she would prefer to select only one language. But during the run-through, Elizabeth added some lines in Spanish then asked Daisy again what she thought of it to which Daisy again expressed her desire to only speak in English. During the actual interview, Daisy’s new book was mentioned and Elizabeth thought it was available at Kohl’s to which Daisy said it was not and Elizabeth suggested maybe it would be in the future and Daisy replied that Kohl’s doesn’t even sell books.
Meanwhile, Team Focus made up of Alicia, Ryan and Zach decided to feature Zach as the host, Alicia as the executive producer and the talent in the commercial and Ryan choose to help direct. Since Ryan has a performing background, he tried to help Alicia by giving her some acting tips. During the run-through for the interview part Zach asked Daisy which of her charities she would like to promote and asked her if it was true that she learned how to speak English while watching “I Love Lucy.” Daisy was very happy with his research. When it was time for the actual interview, the judges said that Zach’s questions were great.
Team Focus won the task and the judges selected Elizabeth and Kristina as the bottom two. They had the opportunity to redeem themselves by doing an interview with Daisy. After both interviews, the judges selected Kristina to stay in the competition and told Elizabeth they would not be producing her own show.
