In this heart-tugging episode, Ven Budhu went from a designer I was entirely apathetic toward to the most vile personality this series has ever seen. There's a difference between being a drama queen (Gunnar) or total pain in the ass (Elena) and being a purely selfish and soulless bully. But I'll try to not be overly harsh toward Ven because a person doesn't turn out like that on his own.
Of course, the "Real" People challenge always sets the designers on edge, but as a whole, this year's crew took the news much better than they would another team challenge. Aside from Ven's miserable behavior, this episode was kind of sweet. Heidi brought in a group of style-averse non-models along with the people who love them and think they deserve to feel glamorous for a day. Everyone but Ven respected what this challenge meant to the clients.
