I can't wait until one of them is gone, but I hope it's Shawn. Shawn doesn't seem to function without Claire, and Claire's work suffers for it.
I am hoping there is something following next week about the twins helping each other. They should have been kicked off right then and there. Neither of them are very talented so far. It's 100% the drama that's keeping them there.

And Kentaro wow! Absolutely stunning. Loved the design and creativity!! But that green outfit?! I can't remember the designer's name, but how was that on the top?! hideous!! It reminded me of something out of Woolworth. If a non model was walking down the street in that Nina would not be saying "how mysterious!"

Kenya did the green and dalmatian thing and I hated it, too. I don't get the judges sometimes. I didn't even like the way the thing fit.

As for the twins, does anyone remember the first episodes where Shawn was on the bottom and Claire burst into tears both times she didn't get sent home? I wonder what Shawn's reaction will be if they send Claire home? (which I think they should have done already. I haven't seen anything good from her yet.) I think Shawn won't mind at all - until she has to make her own look by herself. I can't wait for that to happen.

LOVED Kentaro's look, though not sure about those thigh-high jeggings.

Liked Kentaro's look, thought it was a good winner.

Brandon - more of the same. Cut up sheets that sort of look like a mens shirt. Dude do you do anything else?

Kenya - that was bad, you need to step it up! I think fear closes down her mind. Or maybe I'm projecting because that happens to me. the judges gushing is just because they didn't want to send her home because they want to give her another chance. Why they didn't make her just safe makes me wonder if they are going to just keep gushing about her for some reason no matter what. Maybe she is another drama point only her part is to play the sweet underdog.

I thought they were pretty harsh on the white pants, halter and bomber jacket. There have been plenty of stuff that was worse - hello Claires sweat shirt and shorts? I do think she panic'ed when throwing her model under the bus and that made me feel sad. Its so hard when you are under that much pressure.

Claire, OMG that should have gone home especially since she her stuff has been beyond mediocre every time. I mean it would be interesting to see if she could do something more creative if she wasn't actually designing and sewing for 2. I also feel that the only reason these 2 are still here is for the drama. And while the one twin has had...2?...decent challenges vs. all middling ones I'd sort of like to see what Claire could do without her needy needy NEEDY twin ball and chain around. If Shawn seemed brilliant no, but I feel like it would be an easy sacrifice.

Didn't like the blue and black slashed dress either. Sort of trashy looking.

Oh ya, that green thing was the worst. Makes me think Nina has finally gone 'round the bend.

Yeah that was just an awful, awful shade of green. Like a hunter green. A deep emerald green would have been much better. Then to pair with that top was just awful on top of awful. Funny how all of us hate it but some of the judges thought it was fabulous!!!

I really think the twins are going down in a big way soon. I keep thinking of the season previews where it looked like someone was cheating. Tim Gunn did not look happy. Should be interesting...

Loved Kentaro's look. Definitely the top look of the night. I would wear that. The model who wore the white pants, colorful halter and bomber jacket had a cute look. It reminded me of Gwen Stefani from the 90's.

I'm tired of the twins. Shawn will not be able to make anything if Claire goes. They are both awful designers and their behavior and selfish workroom antics need to go. I hope they both go next week.

I love Kenya's work, but this most recent outfit was awful. Just bad colors and design. Not her best work.

While it had registered with me that the models were the clients I didn't catch that it was streetwear. For me it usually is difficult to separate my feelings about the designer from my opinions about the design. This week it was easier. (Mostly.)

Amy
- I like her and I liked her jacket. Thought she could have done something different with what was under.

Ayana: Another robe. Yawn.

Batani- I like her; it looked like something from a street fair to me=not good.

Brandon- I like him and I especially liked the brown top. I agree with the posters here who have commented that his designs can be monotonous.

Claire: There's nothing I can say that has not already been said.

Kentaro: If I could pull this off I would. Gorgeous.

Kenya- I could have cried. Watched this episode with two friends. Personally K is a favorite of each of us. We cringed. On the monitor I watched the green looked quite dark. We did not get "ninagarcia's" comments either.

Margarita: Personally can't stand her. Was it she who said her model was a potential "bestie"? Liked nothing about her design. Don't think a close friendship will ensue following her comments.

Michael: Did I really hear ng say this looked like cocktail hour at a hotel bar? OK, what kind of hotel? As Giesela posted: "trashy". And I like Michael.

Samantha- Oh Samantha I like you so much. But I really couldn't get her designs for her models or for herself. I wish she had not been sent home.

Shawn
- Actually my friends and I liked her design. As with Claire I can't say anything else regarding her that has not already been said.

I hope only one twin goes home because that's the meltdown I want to see. If Shawn goes, Claire will either cry so much she'll make another bad design and go home or complain about being held back and then make another bad design and go home. If Claire goes home, Shawn will be full of herself until she realizes she can't complete anything without her help.

I saw the previews and the remarks about the cheating and am waiting every week to find out what that turns out to be. They do tease you, so it might not be about the twins at all.

I'm also sorry Samantha went.

I wondered about that as well and could have sworn, on at least the first 2 shows of this season, it was mentioned that there was a TG save
