8:00 p.m. — “Previously on ‘Lego Masters!” In the third episode, friends Dave and Richard won the “Make and Shake” challenge thanks to their “Tube and Beam Exoskeleton” building that hit an 11 on the brickter scale. The bottom three teams were father-son duo Zach and Tim, brothers Mark and Steven, and brothers Caleb and Jacob, with the Brickmasters deciding to send home the parent-child duo. But enough about last week — let’s get to the fourth episode!
8:05 p.m. — The contestants walk in on Will during a sexy photo shoot and soon learn this week’s challenge is all about fashion. This week each team will build a wearable work of Lego fashion — for your head. Yes, they’re making hats! And at the end of this episode, the contestants will model their creations themselves. The Brickmasters instruct them to unleash their “inner fashion designer” and also clarify that the contestants must model their hat and strike a hands-free pose for five seconds. It’s time to get their brick on!
8:15 p.m. — Each team has been assigned a color palate and begin their design process. Last week’s winners Dave & Richard have their hearts set on a Carnival theme while Zack & Wayne hope to make a comeback after last week’s scare that cost them their golden brick. Mark & Steven aren’t feeling good about being in the bottom three last week so this week they’re building a huge pirate hat. They seem pretty jazzed about it.
8:20 p.m. — Michelle & Natalie have concerns their asymmetrical hat won’t balance properly during the runway challenge. Meanwhile, Dave & Richard are having difficulty creating “feathers” out of Legos. Randall & Syreeta are particularly excited about this challenge and are inspired by their grandmother’s church hats and are combining that look with an Egyptian theme. Technical elements are key as the teams try to complete their hats with creativity, yet an ability to wear them down the runway.
8:35 p.m. — With an hour left to build, Caleb & Jacob have serious concerns about their huge chef’s hat making it down the runway in one piece. It’s simply too heavy. They may be relieved to notice many other teams have the same worries and eventually the clock runs out. It’s time for a fashion show!
8:45 p.m. — The teams start by walking down the runway and proving their hats can withstand five seconds hands free. Disaster strikes for Moto & Paras when their serpent hat falls to the ground and shatters at the end of the runway. Dave & Richard suffer the same fate with their oversized hat made of Lego “feathers.” Both of these teams were considered strong contenders to win this season, but this may be the end of the road for one of them.
8:50 p.m. — The Brickmasters will take a look at each hat and decide who’s hot and who’s not. They love Mark & Steven’s “Pirate Hat” and give them kudos for adding color to their base color of brown. Moto & Paras’ “Serpent Safari Hat” had a devastating break on the runway, but the duo is complimented for the drama they attempted in the creation. Caleb & Jacob’s “The Baker’s Crown” put on a show and was called “performance art.” Susan & Jen’s “Grandma’s Famous Hat” was criticized for only having detail on the front, while the back was left bland and boring. Lauren & Bryan’s “Phoenix Rising Hat” brought the drama and the Brickmasters love the fire ribbons wrapping around the structure. Randall & Syreeta’s “Sunday Best Hat” is complimented for the ambition it took to build, but the Brickmasters don’t understand marrying the concept of a church hat with Egypt. Zack & Wayne’s “Archery Hat” is my favorite of the night and the Brickmasters seem to agree that these brothers are in “top form” with this design. Dave & Richard’s busted “Pride of Carnival” hat didn’t make it down the runway, but will the judges be impressed anyways?
8:59 p.m. — The Brickmasters called Dave & Richard’s break “heartbreaking,” but they want to see fully executed designs delivered on time. Maria & Philip’s “Celestial Hat” was complimented for the lights added to their design. Michelle & Natalie’s “Abra-Couture Top Hat” is an asymmetrical masterpiece that the Brickmasters are totally geeking out over. The top two teams of the night are Zack & Wayne and Michelle & Natalie. The winners of this challenge are Michelle & Natalie with their “Abra-Couture Top Hat.” The bottom two teams are Dave & Richard and Moto & Paras. The team leaving the competition are Moto & Paras. Wow! I really thought these engineers would have a more successful run this season. They leave the game with some words of wisdom, “Failure is how you learn.”
