Ink Master Ep #3:
Flash Challenge: Coach's Face-Off
Steve-Portrait of elderly man with pipe
Anthony-Portrait of Tiger Lady
DJ- Hand holding apple, with snake above
Steve won the challenge, which meant his team was safe. The next twist? 2 artists would be eliminated, one from each team....and the coaches had to make the choice.
Elimination Challenge: Mythical Gods
Observation #1: Is DJ setting up Sparks for failure? Told him to flip his stencil, so the face was turned OUTWARD instead of INWARD. Isn't that a no-no???
#2: Amanda used Hercules for reference, not Hades.
#3: Jason has the only color tat.
Best over all:
DJ: Deanna, Sparks, Lil' D
Anthony: Jason, Amanda, Linzy
As they deliberated, Anthony pointed out that Amanda and Jason were coachable; they asked questions and followed his advice. Linzy did not, so she was eliminated.
DJ and Sparks' feud came to a head when he said both Deanna and Lil 'D's were more coachable. Sparks packed up.
I was disappointed; Sparks was the only one I remembered from the Angel series, and had hoped he'd do well. He just picked the wrong coach.
Amazing Race Ep #4: France!
In Saint-Tropez, they had to sail a dinghy and collect two parts of their clues.
Team Xtreme was there 1st; Indy didn't read their clue and had to set out again after finally getting the first half.
Speed bump: NBA had to stack 15 dinghys in numerical order before they could do the roadblock. Cedric found out his weight was a huge disadvantage: He kept sinking.
Firefighters didn't understand how to put their car in 'Reverse', and had to put it in 'Neutral', then push it backward. Geez.....
Ocean seemed lost, but finally found it. Evan (Team Yale) had a tooth get chipped when the sail smacked her in the mouth.
Detour: Bread or Tread?
X-Tread (making a sandal) 1st to finish
