I may get flak for this, but I don't see why I should automatically appreciate what Sandhya makes because of her culture. It's nice to see designers use their heritage or other meaningful stories as inspiration; but that doesn't necessarily make it good work or that anyone who doesn't like it is culturally ignorant. Sandhya's perspective is interesting, but a lot of the criticism towards her has been reasonable. It isn't just "I don't get this because it doesn't scream 'Murica!" As far as the team challenge, the others may have been harsh towards Sandhya, but she also came off as stubborn and not the easiest person to work with. I thought her running to Tim instead of trying to deal with it on her own was a little immature as well. I've seen much worse conflicts on PR without contestants claiming bullying and getting him involved.
