If we can get into a little armchair psychoanalysis, it seems to us that Miss Qristyl was really thrown off her game by last week’s disastrous challenge. Between having Epperson constantly question her skill level and that embarrassing throw-down in front of the judges, she seems to have lost the brash, confident, “plus sexy” promise of her earlier self. “I’m the B-I-T-C-H,” she said, forlornly to her room mates, and we sensed right from that moment that she was going to be on the chopping block yet again. Confidence always wins in reality television and self-doubt is a quick ticket home (or back to PR jail, where they’re sequestered until the shooting is over).
We think he was off the mark on this one. No, her original design wouldn’t have gotten her the win, but if she’d stuck with it, she could have avoided an auf. Tim said it looked sloppy, but we didn’t think so. Unfortunately, she was raw from last week and the slightest criticism from Tim had her scrambling to pull something else together.
Unfortunately, this is what she wound up sending down the runway.
