It's just after 3AM right now in New York City (11am our time) and our budding stars are very likely fast asleep. They'll need that rest too as it was another eventful day which saw them put in several hours of rehearsal plus a little sightseeing before traveling out of New York City for the first time since landing. The destination? – an up-scale shopping complex in the small town of Woodbury where they got time to treat themselves to a shopping spree with the Old Mutual moola they have in the bank.
One look at the snaps makes it clear that they not only went to town but were over the moon with their finds. We're mad curious to find out what exactly they splurged on but, owing to the financial training they got earlier in the season, we're pretty sure they balled on a budget and set aside a little for any potential rainy days ahead.
