* Backstage, JTG complained to Alicia Fox that it’s like he’s been “stuck under a dark cloud” the last few weeks. Alicia said he looked like he was stuck in 1990’s Brooklyn and offered to give him a makeover: new gear, new look, new “you.” Fox promised to make him a champion. JTG said, “Hmm, let me think about that…..NO!” but subsequently agreed. He added, “One week? Okay.”
