The winner walks away with a $100,000 cash prize. Will it be Jess Lamworth? Let's find out if she's got what it takes.
Who is Jess Lamworth?
Lamworth grew up on a farm in Maryland with her two mothers - Marla and Joyce. She considered herself fortunate enough to be loved by them. Unfortunately, not everyone agreed with her. In school, she was picked on and shamed by fellow students for being raised by two mothers. "In Kindergarten, everyone was jealous. I got to have two moms. How cool was that? But as I grew up, other kids picked on me for it," she said and added that people were really mean. The master craft project, that was a collage of the three of them, was a way for her to pay tribute to the beautiful relationship they share.
Judges Johnson and Doonan and hosts Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler had begun to appreciate the sentiment when she dropped a bomb on them. She said, since her mothers had to go through a sperm bank to get her, she has at least 37 half siblings, some of whom she has met with already.
Lamworth graduated from Haverford College with a Bachelor of Arts in the interdisciplinary program of Growth and Structure of Cities. After working with a brand consulting firm for two years, she quit to start a business of her own. Currently, she creates food art, animations and sculptures.
This crafter, despite the challenges growing up, has held her own. She waded through the toughest times with a smile on her face and today was no different for her. Be it a fast craft or a timed master project, Lamworth was able to impress one and all with her creativity.
