She did well with her character as well, but she had turned innocent before, and the judges wanted to see more range from her, especially since this character was her choice. This lands her on the bottom.

As for Rosé, Michelle and Carson rave about how professional, efficient, and fun she is to work with, and this is worth it because her physical comedy is fantastic in the final product. Her runway look is great too, and Michelle says it’s one of Rosé’s best looks of the season, cementing her win for the episode. Unfortunately for Kandy, her catwalk failed as it didn’t fit well, wasn’t elevated enough, and looked sloppy to the judges. She even admits that she doesn’t feel beautiful in it. As for his performance, he’s very Kandy, and the judges wanted to see more than that, so he’s in the bottom two.
