I was surprised the boys (Kintaro/Brandon) didn't win the last challenge.

I rarely agree with the judges though, so no surprise there.

I laughed when the twins went head to bald head! . I actually yelled when they announced the girls would go one on one.

Kintaro is also my favorite.

Out of all the outfits, I liked Claire's the best and then Kentaro's. I am tired of the stupid drama. Sometimes I just want to watch a good ol competition and nothing else. This is why I grow tired of tv in general.

Sadly, if this crap keeps up, I'll move on to something else.


That said, this was Batani's competition to win and she completely missed the mark. She has done some amazing things with patterns and I'm surprised she didn't shine in this challenge. Kenya made the worst outfit ever. What the hell was she thinking?! It was horrible! Was not the least bit flattering to her model. It was gross.

So, they make up fake drama, while the real drama is now fired executive producer Harvey Weinstein, husband to the lovely Georgina Chapman. I hope his disgusting behavior and exit doesn't hurt Project Runway. It really is one of my favorite shows.

I am so so tired of this seemingly manufactured drama. I don't remember how long it took for it to come out that the designer in one of the seasons of project runway when it was on Bravo was using pattern books.

I think in this case its leading up to letting us believe that Clare somehow is "cheating". But I think its going to go more the way of Gretchen and Ivy vs. Michael C., where Tim told them all to knock it off (similar to how it seems to go down in this weeks episode), and Clare will be "vindicated". She really should have been aufed weeks ago. Aside from this week, which IMO her look was marginal at best (even by the judges), her stuff has been pedestrian, definitely not fashion, and poorly done. And even poorly done is often excused by the judges as long as there is taste, style and unique design elements to it.

Also, the who sister head to head thing was so beyond ridiculous. All the crying and how can I compete against my sister. FFS, what did they think they were going to be doing when they signed on for the show?

I know this is the PR producers way of getting people to talk about the show, and I guess it is working. Because here we all are. I guess it doesnt matter, really, they get the attention for the show as long as people are talking regardless of if it is positive or negative.

Oh good grief! I just wasted an hour of my life watching that episode. I can't stand those twins and was hopeful that with one of them gone we'd cut our twin experience by half, but it didn't work that way. Clare Hair got Shawn Shaved extra TV minutes!

And if the big scandal is that Clare was measuring her pants with a measuring tape back at the hotel that is the tamest scandal in the history of the show. Do you really think that no one has ever thought to measure their own pants before? Crazy.

All the fake expression shots which are probably recorded separately and edited in are distracting. I can just imagine a producer saying "Zac show me a disappointed face. OK - now show me a pleasantly surprised face".

I'll keep watching, but I'll also keep rolling my eyes.

Personally, I think both are a plant by Heidi and the producers..of which she is one. Ratings, you know.

Well, this clip about confirms it. Claire will be vindicated, and we all try to "move on" https://www.facebook.com/projectrunway/


I think Claire is a terrible designer, but its looking more and more like she will end up in the top.

blech.

There is a chance I am wrong. I guess, I am reading between the lines in terms of how it was edited. They show a close up of Clare, and Tim questioning her. Margarite seeming all apologetic in her interview.

Heidi saying can we all move on now - and to me that seems to be going in the direction, nothing nefarious happened/nothing to see here, so can we please just all move on and get past this.\

Guess we will find out for sure tonight, but I do hope the twin thing is all done. It has been an annoying distraction to the format that I had enjoyed in PR seasons in the past.

IMO, neither of those annoying twins was ever going to get the boot on that episode. It's all contrived drama.

I'm getting sick of some of those judges, too. And is there a problem with the lighting in that place? What's up with the notecard visor pose? It's as if they can't see without shielding their eyes. First it was Nina, then, Zac, then Heidi.

And that silly little man, Zac, trying too hard to inject humor in his critiques. Although I did laugh when he commented about one of the twins' creations that The world doesn't need this--complete with flustered hand flourish lol. I'm sick of Nina, too, and her stale comments about "cohesion," and "points of view," and her inevitable "vagina" comments.

That's when I miss Michael Kors. Who else could come up with a critique that someone's design makes the model look like she's pooping fabric? My favorite was when he said that one model was wearing a design so disheveled it looked like she was running out of a beauty salon that caught fire.

Now those observations, I miss.
