Rubens is fab, of course, but I'm going with Schwitters, who, you know, makes my eyes so happy.

Morgan went for Schwitters by a lot; I'm going to go for Schwitters by a little.

Sir Rubens. Or Sir Peter. I'm not really up on my honorifics.

Rubens struggled a bit in the early rounds, but obviously he's developed some real traction. He wins this one by a pretty solid margin for the semis, with nine votes against Schwitters's five, and moves on to Fourth Round Elimination!
