  • Quotes

    • Raymundo: I come from a Roman Catholic Mexican family, so my dad is completely against all this. He thinks this is really gay and stuff like that, so I'm like, 'I am gay'.

    • Tim Gunn: (examining a garment made by Santino) I have to tell you, before you came in, we all said to each other if we see one more corset we're gonna scream, but this is really good!

    • Prospective Designer: I'm trying to incorporate weird objects into clothing.
      Robert Plotkin: (sitting on the judges' panel) These are condoms?
      Prospective Designer: Yeah.
      Robert Plotkin: Mind if I take some?

    • Andrae (on the fabric given to them for the first challenge): Muslin in general is not a very pretty fabric. It's kind of coarse, unfinished. It's like the hillbilly of fabrics.

    • Daniel F: (after almost being eliminated in the first round again) I was having some serious deja vu like I've never had in my life!

    • Heidi Standridge (after being eliminated): I'm going to hug you. I know you shake hands, but I'm going to hug you because I'm from Alabama and that's what we do. And I'm not going to cry because I promised I wouldn't, but I really... I'm just thankful to be here, so thank you so much.
      Heidi Klum: Thank you. Auf Wiedersehen.
      Heidi Standridge: I don't know what that means, but, bye!
