When it came to the camera challenges this week, all of us struggled with what project we would use to bring the outdoors in or indoors out in 30 seconds. One night at the house during the competition Hilari was writing her camera challenge and I asked her to read it to me. It was then that she admitted to me her only idea to bring the outdoors in was to 'light a candle in your favorite outdoor scent.' We began to laugh hysterically at what a desperate attempt we were all making for our camera challenges, because we knew we were going to have to come up with something better. Our final tips for the camera challenge were all very lack luster, and last night we texted each other poking fun at all of our not so fabulous ideas.
In the last hour of the challenge Stanley and I realized we might have been in over our heads. All of the producers and camera men on set had gathered around our tiny backyard to watch what they thought might be the demise of Stanley and I in this competition. But we knew we had to finish, and even if we didn't get to finish all the projects we wanted to, we were going to make it look like we had. And luckily with no time to spare, Stanley and I had finished an epic backyard challenge. I was so proud of myself for getting out of my comfort zone and taking on such a huge challenge in the backyard. And I don't think I could have done it without Stanley as a partner.

In the end our house won the challenge with Hilari being the big winner. Hilari & Mikel's living room was gorgeous and a big transformation Our guest judge Sabrina Soto loved all of Hilari's contributions to the living room space and was impressed most by her camera challenge this week. So I found myself in second place again this week, but I was absolutely happy with that. I continued to tell myself that slow and steady can win this race! Miera and Danielle found themselves at the bottom because of their unfinished living room. Miera had said the famous last words of , "trust me, I know what I am doing," And in the end her semi custom built ins were a time sucker leaving nothing completed and sending her home.
