GMA: Ambush Makeovers In Times Square
Good Morning America did two ambush makeovers of women in New York City. A GMA correspondent ambushed Alex at the PR firm she works at in New York City. Then, Rachel Smith ran after Kiki, a 22-year-old college student about to graduate. Rachel Smith ran down the street shouting “Kiki!” when she saw her, which made her look like a crazy person. Luckily, Kiki was evidently aware of Rachel Smith, either because she knew the ambush was coming or she recognized Rachel Smith, even with a big brown coat and a bright yellow hat on.
The fashion experts when to Marshalls so the ladies could try on different clothes. Then, they brought on the glam squads, who did the makeup for the two women.
The segment seemed a little rushed, because when they showed the “before” picture, with Alex in dull, basic office clothing, Liz Vargas asked if it was the before or after photo. There was a long pause. Then someone said, “before.” When Alex walked out after, she wore a bright pink blazer and khaki pants. It was like night and day. How does anyone confuse the before and after pictures?
Anyway, I think Kiki looked a lot better in the “after” photo, going from a basic jeans-and-t-shirt look to a nice office professional look. She had a white blazer and grey skirt and a pink and yellow bag.
GMA had a peep competition, dubbed “Peep-a-Palooza,” where contestants had 45 minutes to come up with a neat thing to do with peeps. They could make art or food or whatever they liked. The doubles of Josh Elliott, Sam Champion and Lara Spencer were the judges.
First was the Buzzfeed Food Team, who made Peeps Apple Punch and “Peeps-arooni Peepza.” It was neat, but the Buzzfeed Design Team blew them away with a rendition of Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night, made completely out of peeps. It was amazing looking. How’d they do that in 45 minutes? Lastly, there was the Buzzfeed DIY Team who made a Peeps chandelier. It was kind of crooked and weird. But it was impressive, I guess.
The GMA doubles chose Starry Night and no one was surprised. Because seriously, it was Starry Night made out of peeps. That thing should’ve been hung on the walls of the Louvre.
