(dramatic orchestral music) – Welcome! To outlast your competitors, you must be a strong artist and sometimes rely on the
strength of your region. – We do that well.
– We do that very well. – Once again, for this flash challenge, you will win or lose as a team. – Yeah, we’re the strongest ones, though. – This week, we are testing legibility. – Legibility is being
able to read a design and recognize immediately what it is. If you have a question mark, then you don’t have legibility. – Today, you must create a design on an eight foot by 12 foot canvas. One strand at a time. – Oh (bleep). – Strands of what? – In these buckets are over 120 miles of various colors of yawn. – Oh shit.
– That’s one hell of a scarf. How many grandmas you round
up to get all this yarn? – You must strategically stretch and pull each strand of colored
yarn from nail to nail, bringing an impressive and
legible work of art to life. – (bleep). Forget Ink Master, with all this yarn, I could be the next Knit Master. Sweaters for everybody. – Today’s challenge is legibility. We have to know what it is on the spot. – You got a lot of bright
colors on a black background, a lot of contrast. Think smart, think creative. – Aw, that’s gonna be painstaking. – Win this challenge and
your team will have the power to assign all of the human canvasses in the elimination tattoo. – We definitely need that now. – You’ll have six hours. And your time starts now. – Let’s do this.
(dramatic orchestral music) – All right!
– All right, let’s see what we got here. – For this flash challenge, we’re judging legibility. – Do you guys have good ideas? – I think of a big pair of sunglasses and then something in ’em. – Maybe the words, East? – I don’t think–
– Is that too simple? – It could be. – These artists have a lot of different colors of yarn to use, so picking the right colors that are gonna bounce off this background and make a legibile image is tough. – Oh (bleep).
– We got bright colors, I was thinking maybe we
doin’ something like a neon, like a (bleep) flamingo and
maybe like (bleep) art deco-ish? – Henry, we are short two team members, so whatever we do has gotten be simple. – If these strings don’t line up right, it’s gonna get messy. – We could do a lantern. With a candle.
– Yeah, (bleep). – We could actually really
(bleep) sell a lantern. – We could.
– Do it. – What came to mind to me immediately was to do like a big eyeball–
– I just like an eyeball too. – With like radiating
like rays coming off it. – So if you pretend just that, they already beat us in creativity. – But it’s not creativity, J-Man. It’s legibility.
– It is. – That is way more basic. – It’s not like complexity
day, you know what I mean? – We’re losing time.
– Yeah, we could still do it (bleep) big. – [Bob] Or a UFO. – I like the UFO, yeah. – I mean, it’s already got that shape. – [Hat Woman] That tells a
story, let’s do the (bleep) UFO. – I’m still don’t like it, but I like it better. (dramatic orchestral music) (banging) – (bleep). I draw pictures for a living, there’s a reason why I’m not a handyman. (banging) God, I wish I could hammer like you. – It’s the only reason I was born, was to (bleep) hammer. – Jerrel and this (bleep) hammer, man. (banging) Doosh, doosh, doosh, doosh. (banging) Mesmerizing. (banging) – Dude battin’ a hundred right now. – We’re one of the biggest
teams in the competition, and we wanna keep it that way. To me, the main focus is
tryin’ to beat the West. So we gotta move, we gotta get it done. I’m the one movin’ constantly, pickin’ up the slack for everybody. – Man, I’m not vibin’ with anything. – Everybody is gettin’ down, they’re hammerin’ their nails in, it sounds like a goddamn
construction site around here. And we’re sittin’ here doodlin’ on paper. Doodles don’t win! We gotta get this thing rollin’. – Five hours left! (tense orchestral music) – [Jason] So you know what we could do? We could take the white and we could stretch it out, and we could double it up and give us a big, fat white outline. – Perfect. – Team South is suffering
a big loss right now, with Patrick gone. But if there’ any team in flash challenges that makes us feel better about ourselves, it’s definitely East. The East design sucks. Oh, lettering. Nothing says legible more than lettering. – That’s true, sometimes you gotta spell
it out for ’em, you know? East is gonna take it home, you just kind of write it out. – Probably not.
– East wins. (groans) – Three hours! Three hours left, guys. Halfway there! (dramatic orchestral music) – See how this one goes
one-to-one, one-to-one, one-to-one? Is this what the spacing
between these two is? A little bit different? – It’s not that big a deal. – [Bob] It matters! – Bob’s Mr. Systematic,
he likes to take charge, he likes to let everybody
know how he wants it done. And once he has an idea in his head, he commits. Yeah, I think you’re good now. – No, this gets us, this is a smaller gap. It is, it’s a smaller gap by an inch. I measured it, I just measured it. People might bust my
balls and call me a robot, but hey, this challenge was meant for one. – Are these right?
– No. – No.
– This is a six and a half. If we don’t have precise measurements, our design is gonna lack in legibility. Every last detail counts, guys. – One final hour, guys! This challenge has one hour remaining! (thumping orchestral music) – I’m starting to get paranoid that we’re not gonna finish this. – [Jessa] Positivity. – That’s true, Jess. – We’re all in this situation together and we’re rollin’ through it! I just wanna radiate beauty
and power and (bleep), like positivity. – Thanks for the reminder. – Positivity is key, queen! We can do it. – I just need to get up into the A. – Hurry, hurry it up! – Five! (banging) Four! Three! (groans)
Two! One! That is it! Challenge is officially over. – It lines up perfectly. – [Bob] Yeah, the perspective is great. – Your landscape is the same
color as your background! – This little tiny planet has more saturation
than your entire piece! And you dare to come
over here to talk shit? (laughing)
