T LOunge

Posted on October 27, 2011

This is it, darlings. Try and work up the excitement.

Electric Birdcage Bar in London

And if you can’t work up the excitement, you can at least try and keep down the bile.

Oh, you know what? Let’s all get drunk and have fun tonight.

Guest Judge L’Wren Scott

We were impressed to see L’Wren at that HP PR reunion party during Fashion Week. You wouldn’t catch Michael or Nina at something like that. We thought she was cool for showing up. Hopefully, she can talk some sense into these judges tonight.

Anya, Josh, Kimberly, Viktor

You’ve read the ologies and followed along all season, so there’s really only one question to ask this week: Who should win Season 9 of Project Runway?

 

Tears! Drama!

We suspect the T Lounge to have plenty of both tonight. If you’d like to add to the drama, come check us out on twitter tonight as we’ll be tweeting our thumbs off through the whole episode, saying whatever bitchiness pops into our heads. Strap yourselves in, Bitter Kittens, and DRINK!

    VIKTOR for the win…

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    Ah, London, how I’ve missed you.  I’ll have a double Stoli Vanil & Diet Coke please.

    Tonight I’ll be mostly watching the show in disbelief.

    Viktor should win.  But even if he does, I fear that PR is broken anyway.

    • http://www.facebook.com/samuel.j.donovan Samuel Joesph Donovan

      True :/ I missed the days when they decided this thing based on talent.

    • Anonymous

      Oh, I’ve never tried Vanilla Stoli with Diet Coke.
      I will think of you and your beautiful shoe as I try one tonight.

      Viktor or the Highway, PR!

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        I’ve received weird looks when ordering it in the US – apparently it’s unusual of me to mix a clear spirit with a ‘dark’ soda…?  I don’t care – it tastes great!  Raspberry Stoli and Diet Coke is also very enjoyable.

        It is a lovely shoe isn’t it, unfortunately I do not have the financial wherewithall to actually own a pair of Louboutins but I can dream!

        • http://twitter.com/ILikeShiny Cindi Williams

          I’m surprised people give you strange looks; in my neck of the woods, Stoli Vanilla and Diet Coke is almost a staple drink.

          • Eclectic Mayhem

            It was mostly in New Orleans seven or eight years ago so maybe I was just way ahead of the curve…?!  In London nobody would bat an eyelid at that order but bar staff were definitely perplexed in NoLA.  

            I haven’t been doing much drinking since then as I’ve spent the best part of the last six years pregnant or nursing or both!

            Well, NOLA is a whole ‘nother cocktail realm.  Probably not a lot of orders for imported Russian vodka in NOLA when you could be drinking rum.

            That makes a lot of sense!

            Never heard of such a thing (I’m in Boston). For some reason I feel the need to figure out where this is and is not done. Like, around here a whiskey diet is totally normal and if anything kind of lowbrow, but apparently it’s a snooty white hipster drink in Atlanta? I’m oddly fascinated by regional drinking variations, is what I’m trying to say.

    • Anonymous

      So, wait…is Stoli and Diet not a thing? Because I’m from the heartland of America and that’s what we’ve always drunk. Maybe I’m more cosmopolitan than I thought!

      The bar in my college town used to mix Stoli Vanil with soda and grenadine.  They called it a Drew Barrymore, b/c it’s an alcoholic Shirley Temple.  :)  Perfect with a burger!

    If there’s any justice on reality TV, Viktor should win.  But justice and reality TV is almost oxymoronic. Not holding my breath.

  • Anonymous

    “Tlo said: Who should win Season 9 of Project Runway?”

    None of the above.

    But if they have to pick one from this group, it SHOULD be Viktor…which means it won’t be. I’m thinking that Tlo should use plastic glasses and hide the cutlery in the TLounge, and fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy, yet boring, night.

    I can sleep in tomorrow (day off!) so I really CAN DRINK while I get all squinty-eyed and cranky watching the annoyances that will be parading across the screen with formulaic regularity.

    A hangover would be a sorry souvenir from this season, but perhaps all too appropriate.

    Viktor, be the victor.

    How many rivers of tears will we see flow on-screen tonight – too many, and only a few will be sincere.

    I will be honestly surprised if I wake up tomorrow and read that someone other than Anya won.

  • Anonymous

    It’s no question that Viktor should win.  I wouldn’t be mad if Kimberly won because she’s so damn likable and I didn’t hate her final collection, there were some interesting pieces.  Or I just keep telling myself that because I want to like her so much.
    If Josh wins.  I just can’t.  If Anya wins, I won’t be surprised or happy.No matter the outcome, I think getting through this season earns us all more than few drinks.  Without Tom and Lorenzo, I might have quit this show this season.  I used to so look forward to Thursdays and now I just can’t muster up any excitement.  But I still look forward to reading recaps on Friday morning.  So thanks to TLo for providing me with the entertainment that the show no longer does. Can they win this season?

  • Anonymous

    This is one of the only times all season that I’ll be able to watch the show in  real time, rather than later.  It’s been a busy autumn for me…  Viktor of course should be the winner.  But I fully expect Anya to take the win.  And I’m finding that I just really don’t care.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=8402388 Mike Benedetto

    Viktor will still probably win. Out of eight winners, the only outright botch has been Gretchen and I think they’re smart enough not to do that two years running. (One would have thought they were smart enough not to do it even once, of course.)

    They do like Anya enough to take her to the top two, though. I’m thinking Josh at #4, Kimberly at #3.

    Viktor should win, but he most likely won’t, since this show has become a total joke.  While last year I screamed at the TV and swore I was done with the show, this season proved that I should have stuck to my guns and quit watching.  It’s been underwhelming, boring and the judging was atrocious.  So I guess I will only watch tonight to know all the gory details for reading you guys tomorrow.

    I’m not excited by any of these finalists. It’s overall a rather dreary, uninspired bunch IMO. But out of this crew I’d say Viktor’s the most deserving.

        In the UK (and probably Australia, New Zealand and maybe Canada too) ‘knob’ is a slang term for penis so I don’t doubt that that particular brand is popular in London.

        It’s very childish.  On my family’s recent cross-country road trip we passed an area – in PA I think – called ‘Blue Knob State Park’…  as we drove past the first sign I just smiled to myself – by the time we passed the FIFTH road sign I was in tears with laughter – it kept getting funnier and funnier.  SO childish…

        My husband wanted us to go as William Wallace and Princess Isabella. But I sang in a madrigal group for 15 years and I’m so sick of Celtic/Medieval/Renaissance costumes.

I’ve had fun pulling this together and have put far too much thought into it. :)

    I’m going to guess Viktor. AND THEN OH WAIT ALSO ANYA!!!! Never in the history of Project Runway, yadda yadda, etc.

    God I hate this show now. I’m really really hoping for a good critique session, at least. I won’t watch it, but I’m hoping to hear it was a good one.

    If you base who should win on their output to date, then it has to be Viktor.  If you base it on their finale shows, it should be Bert or Laura.  I wasn’t impressed by any of the four finalists’ collections.

    Well, I’m going to settle in with some fine Scotch whiskey, kick off my shoes and prepare for this evening’s finale. I am grateful to our dear leaders T and Lo, who provided us with the “ologies” that made it abundantly clear that Viktor is the front runner in terms of overall design mastery and construction skill. But we also know that this episode is going to be filled with the usual Bunim/Murray dramarama, so I must remember to put on my steel-mesh hairnet so that I will have less clean-up after my head explodes. Last week, I had to spend FAR too much time tidying up the flat after everybody got a ponyy, and I exploded!

    I’ll be checking back on the gossip in The Electric Birdcage as the evening goes on.

    Surprise twist!

    The judges, struck with remorse that Laura’s decoy collection is not in the final four (since it outshines at LEAST three of ‘em), look slightly disoriented throughout and are ignored by L’Wren Scott.  Scott decrees by fiat that Victor, Bert, and Laura split the prize, that Kimberley is Fan Favorite, and the remaining designers may auction off the contents of the Piperlime accessories wall and the crappy hair salon products on eBay and split any revenues. And that the bar is open.

    But I will continue to read you guys, OF COURSE!

  • Daisy James

    I have a theory* about this season, but I don’t think anyone is going to like it. The thing is, I happened across a little poll thing Piperlime was doing on their Facebook page about who people thought should win PR, and while Viktor was making a strong showing, Anya (or, as at least one person called her, “Annie”) was walking away with it. And as much as I want to believe they were all producer-bots, my suspicion is they were not, and BM have known exactly what they are doing all along. Because there seems to be a vast audience out there who don’t care at all about skill or creative talent, they just want to follow the pretty girl with the nice storyline, who must be good because all the judges say so. We don’t see them around here because, well, my sense is they’re probably thinking that nice mormon boy will be so happy when he finally meets the right girl.

    God, I sound cranky. I’m not even planning on watching the show tonight, but I may have a drink anyway.

      I believe you speak the truth. Heck, even the recapper at Television Without Pity is completely up Anya’s butt. TWoP is supposed to be the land of straight-talking, no bullshit snark, and he’s all “oh Anya’s stuff is so nice! People should stop being MEAN to her!”

      My variant on this theory is that as long as there IS a vast audience, BM see nothing wrong with making this a show about pretty people creating drama.  If they can pander to the audience, they will, but really it doesn’t matter if the audience is happy or infuriated as long as the numbers are tuning in.

      Oh, gosh, Daisy James. That’s depressing. If “Annie” wins, I think I’ll be sick. And never watch PR again. Of course, I’ll stay loyal to TLo, but I couldn’t bear to watch such a sham of a show. Anyway, I’ll have a very strong gin and tonic and enjoy the fine company.

    Viktor, FTW.  He and Josh were two of my picture-and-a-paragraph picks from the beginning, and I think Viktor is definitely the best of these designers.

  • RuthAlice Anderson

    Such uniformity. Perhaps folks who like Anya go elsewhere?

    I am fine with Victor winning. I like his clothing and certainly he sews better than anyone else, so he wins the sewing competition without a doubt I think his clothing can be a bit dull – with the exception of his magnificent jackets. That white jacket from his final collection might just be enough to overcome some of the more boring pieces. I also love that he made his own fabric, but hate hate hate hate times ten thousand times hate those pants he made. Bringing the fabric together to make a big purple pubic patch makes me cringe. See, my problem with Victor is that his clothing is so focused on commercial appeal that it’s not that interesting except for the jackets and the few times he goes bold. But when he goes bold, he totally loses all sense of taste. Maybe that’s why his clothing is so quiet – he recognizes that he can’t do bold well. If so, props to him for recognizing his weaknesses. 

    Josh is another one with excellent sewing skills and wildly whacked out taste. I don’t like his clothing colors or silhouettes nor his personality. He’s just a bully. 

    My faves in design are Kimberly and Anya and I freely admit neither of them sew as well as Josh and Victor. I don’t care. This is not the hunt for the next American sample-maker. There’s plenty of designers with weak sewing skills in the real world. If they can hold it together to make it down the runway and back so it can be seen, that’s enough. 

    I think Anya is the most level-headed and mature contestant we have ever seen. I know it’s popular to hate her here, but it’s rather typical, isn’t it? Hating the pretty girl – so high school. Kimberly is a sweetheart and I hope she doesn’t become her own worst enemy and crack under pressure. She does sometimes and that’s too bad, because Kimberly when she’s on is great. It’s unfortunate that Nina and Heidi don’t seem to “get” Kimberly. Perhaps in the 6 week hiatus, they might take a moment to read up on some ethnic fashion tastes and trends so they don’t sound so ignorant when discussing big bottomed skirts.

    Looking at the pictures from Fashion Week, it looked like Victor and Anya listened to the judges comments and Josh and Kimberly didn’t. I saw those blue accessories in the pics, darn it. If so, then if past is prologue, Victor and Anya will be top 2, by virtue of listening to feedback. It looks like Victor may have made black pants and a top for that jacket – if so, that may win it for him right there. If so – not a bad choice. Probably not my choice, but not a bad choice.  

    • http://www.facebook.com/sorryfortheincovenience Heather Pickett

      people hate the pretty girl not because she’s pretty, but because that’s ALL she is. she is utterly without talent and it was questionable (at best) to include her as a contestant knowing that her portfolio had been sewn by someone else. moreover, every challenge seemed to be (pardon the pun) tailor-made to offer her a handicap, where other designers were judged, it seemed, more critically in terms of execution. i have no qualms with beauty, but a shallow beauty with nothing to back it up (in the context of this contest) is, for lack of a better word, infuriating.

        Yup. Pretty is as pretty does.

    • Deborah Bonner

      I don’t hate her at all and certainly not because she is pretty, (though I don’t think she is all that pretty anyway). I am annoyed because her limited talents do not merit her inclusion and her progression in this show. For her to be doing so well is an insult to designers who have much better construction and design skills. To be frank, I think Anya should have stayed home for another year or two and learnt the craft before even applying for Project Runway. 

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      TeamAnya has certainly made its presence felt here Chez TLo, not sure where they all are tonight.

      I can only speak for myself.  I don’t hate Anya because she’s pretty.  I don’t hate her at all.  Where you see ‘level-headed’, however, I see calculating and manipulative.  I dislike calculating and manipulative people.  I dislike seeing what was once the best show on TV crumble before my eyes as a ‘designer’, who simply does not have the chops to be in the competition at all, is given pass after pass after pass.

    Hoping it’s Victor but to be honest, at this point I don’t really care. Would be happy enough with Kimberly.

    If it hasn’t been posted yet on this thread,  and if everyone’s drinking and no one is minding the store :-), Bert’s sister posted at 7:38 in Anyaology and then responded to another poster within the last hour.  Interesting.  Made my shitty day better just to know she has the gumption to post and say as much as she did.  If it occurs to anyone that she is a fake, then she faked before, early in the season, because I remember her posting back then.  I believe she’s for real.

        It looked for it. She posted as Diamonddeb and introduced herself as Bert’s sister. She makes a pretty strong accusation about Anya cheating by having not sewn anything she presented ss her initial work for the tryout. Not sure why she would choose to say it tonight, unless she knows something about the outcome, which I assume she does. Hmmm.

      Does she post as “Sister of Bert”? How did you know it was her?

        She said “I am Bert’s sister” and has posted a few times beforehand. She is “diamondeb.”

        Her accusations are that Anya did not sew any of her pieces in the casting session and that she has had a PR agency help her with Fan Favorite. 

        It would also mean that Bert thinks Anya cheated as well.

    It’s all so unreal–a bizarro world version of a runway show in which “taste” has no value and “blindness” is a character trait to applaud.

    The judges don’t likely care that they have lost what credibility they might have once had. I care that true art has been jettisoned in favor of–well–in favor of what, exactly? Who wins in this scenario? Neither the viewer, nor the network, nor the pitiful individuals that brought us this fiasco. We have, I fear, lost Project Runway to the pop culture abyss.

      feh.

      • Anonymous

        YES.

        She will use this stepping stone more effectively than anyone has but Christian Siriano (at least to an outsider’s view – I suspect Chloe, for example, is very satisfied with the boost the money gave her business), but not I think for a serious fashion design career.  And the PR conglomerate of affiliated business enterprises will get good value for their money.

        And it’s not her fault that the show put an apparently golden public relations personality over the work done in the contest. She couldn’t have prevented the process except by quitting the show, and why would she want to do that?

        I wish her well.

        The show is fucked, however. Won’t say I’ll never watch again, but this after Gretchen is pretty conclusive. It’s not gonna be as fun  because the fashion design element is not just manipulated, it’s been rendered irrelevant.

        & you, Ms. { edi }, take your meds & go to bed. Hope you feel better.

      She won’t have a career as a designer. She knows it — and the network knows it too. That’s why they kept talking about an Anya “brand.” Her designs are mediocre, but they’re hoping to be able to get her to put her name on some overpriced shoes or handbags or maxipads or something, and people will flock to the stores to wear her name. Not THIS bitter kitten.

      When they kept going on and on about Anya is so “AH-mayyyyyy-zinnnnnnng” with prints all I could think about was Uli. Anya uses one print, which she doesn’t even design, in most of her looks. Uli was a wizard with prints, not Anya.

    Project Craptastic. Well I have to say, i am not all that surprised. I thought they would give it to Josh by the way they were talking but they gave it to the Queen in the end. Not a stretch to see it coming. After all she once again got “another chance” with the additional $500 because as we all know she hadn’t done squat with what she had up to that point. Bleh. I don’t care anymore. I’m not even mad, I just don’t care. This is becoming boring to me.

    Unbelievable.  Poor Viktor–so unfair.  The whole time they were going on about Josh’s plastic and neoprene stuff, all I could think of was the inevitable perspiration and how yucky it would feel, and look, under those pieces after a couple of hours.  The judges remind me of the sick old lady at the foot of the steps in Dolores Claiborne:  it’s like they’re begging for this show to be killed.

It’s a different sort of outrage and so I would expect that it was a milestone disgust for many. It has been for me.  There are a lot of other things I can be watching on television.  Project Runway can go fuck itself.

        LOL, not Heidi here. But I’m just saying overall there seems to have been a lot of “I said I was going to stop last season but………” and that seems to be pretty common with reality shows when they disappoint in general but for the most part people still come back anyway. I guess it’ll depend on if ratings get worse next season since they were really high this year.

      I stopped watching almost halfway through this season in disgust because of the conspicuous Anya favoritism and will definitely not be watching next year.  Believe it or not, it’s pretty easy just to come for TLO’s recaps.  I prefer the snark over the nauseating producer manipulation. I refuse to be suckered into another Lifetime “little engine that could” spokesperson project.

        Janet, 

        I watch NBC programs on Thursdays, so this season, I started watching PR at 9:30 after “The office.”  You know what?  It helped me enjoy the program MORE missing the first 30 minutes.  I probably would have found it even more delightful if I FF through contestant drama, saw the runway and FF through judges discussion.  Perhaps I’ll try that next year.  Pretty much everything the judges say to the contestants is all I need to hear to know who are favorites and who are hated.

    Pardon my French but what a fucking joke.

    I have to say that Josh’s clothes actually looked much better walking the runway than they did in the photos. I would wear that lime green skirt. Really, any choice other than Anya would have made sense for the win. You played it to perfection, Beauty Queen. Couldn’t get Miss Universe but she was right there with pageant face for her win,

    And while I’ve talked about going on this show, I said if I made it to the finals, I was going to do something the show and the judges would hate because it would make a point, but my husband would be really pissed if I lost on purpose… but this season proves that nothing I could do or not do would matter anyway, so I might be able to get him behind my plan:)

    I was getting a headache and bruised irises from all the eye-rolling I was having to do while they were critiquing the finale collections. Not one person called out Josh on his tacky collection? And Anya won with a collection of basically the same dress over and over again? I did see the problems with Viktor’s collection, but overall, there were so many individual pieces that were eye-catching and well tailored.

    I know a lot of people say they’re done with the show at the end of every season, but I think this really is the last one for me. I changed the channel too so I wouldn’t have to see the new accessory show, nor the “After the Runway” after that. I’ll look forward to the posts here, though.

      it’s a showbiz decision, it’s an industry thing.
      i would probably bet my whole left arm on it. & my left arm is probably the only part of me that doesnt feel sick right now.
      it’s really clear. something else is cooking, got not a single thing to do w/ fashion or taste or, in this case, the very lack thereof.
      the faked near-ascendancy of Josh The Hated [of all people] was just the very last pudding’s proof.

    I’m not even surprised that she won but I am appalled to read that Josh came out ahead of Viktor.  I hope Anya has a thick skin and can muster up some kind of skill because after this obviously biased-in-her-favor experience on PR, she’s going to need a lot of it.  The fashion world will eat her alive and spit her back out again.  Personally, I doubt she’ll be able to do it. I just don’t see any real skill or talent there.  Just a bit of personality and the ability to style herself.  BFD – many others can do equally as much.

    I am done with Projoke Runway. After last season’s disaster, I gave it one more chance, and this season has been more miss than hit before tonight. After tonight, I am convinced that ability to design doesn’t matter so much as having a dead relative, sex tape, and drama by the bucketful.

    I honestly did not think that Viktor’s looked as great on the runway as Kimberly’s and I do think the criticism of his sheer pieces was deserved. I have no problem with them not giving it to Viktor, but I have a big problem with it going to Anya. To be fair, I didn’t think hers was terrible, but it was absolutely a one note collection of maxi’s and plunging necklines.  Josh’s was not something I really liked but it looked like most of the pieces were made well. Well, no kitten rage here. Just Meh. That’s all.

      Did Viktor tank his collection on purpose? And was he sedated? His reaction was … odd.

        I think he knew he wasn’t going to win from the get-go and just thought fuck it. So he sewed whatever he wanted. He kept trying to please the judges and I think with the last $500 thing he realized – oh, I’m not going to win no matter what I do so I’ll just put out what I like and hope it gets some attention from somewhere. Anyways thats my theory on his reaction and the last minute drastic additions of sheer.

    Well that was pretty much as predicted and controlled by the producers.  I believe the whole thing was scripted like a Lifetime story – see the pretty novice with the cute accent overcome adversity and win Project Runway over the experienced designers.

    I don’t believe she had nothing ready for Tim’s visit, they just portrayed it that way because it worked best in the script
    I don’t believe that the pieces and styling she showed for the three piece collection wasn’t staged so she could have a redemption arc
    I don’t believe that she created last minute pieces by herself, they were already created and ready for the story arc.

    I do believe we need to get Tim Gunn drunk on Cosmos and get the real scoop.

        No. It is not a little extreme. It is the way losers are punished in a capitalist society.

          I have a bit of an ethical problem with using the boycott for something that’s essentially frivolous–at the end of the day, we’re arguing with the results of a talent competition. Don’t watch, sure, and spread the word that the judging is rotten and the outcome unsatisfactory. But “boycott” is what we did when, say, Dr. Laura got a TV show to spread anti-gay BS to a bigger audience. It might be a quantitative and not a qualitative difference, but it’s still an important one. Keep the powder dry.

            My biggest pet peeve is seeing bad behavior rewarded. Because when we tolerate bad behavior, without meaning to, we encourage it. Tolerance of bad behavior is what has put this country in the toilet. Granted, PR is just a TV show, but I feel that my trust and belief in their integrity as a franchise has been violated. I was a loyal fan for nine seasons. Even after last year’s travesty, I continued to watch, hoping that the show would return to its former standards. Well, that didn’t happen and I feel betrayed.  I will not reward them, their sponsors or anyone affiliated with this debacle. I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=8402388 Mike Benedetto

    I said I was out after Gretchen’s win but allowed myself to be coaxed back. Big mistake.

    What did we watch all of this for? They were lying to us, again and again, telling us that our untrained eyes were mistaken, that Josh had good ideas under the bad taste, that it required creativity and skill to drape silk the way Anya did, that making ready-to-wear clothes for stiltwalkers was a good way to demonstrate one’s talent as a fashion designer. And they lied SO badly. They couldn’t even be bothered to edit over the bits where they clearly changed the rules to benefit someone they favored.

    And here’s the worst thing: they couldn’t even manipulate the results in a way that would be pleasurable to watch, bringing JOSH into the final two, of all people. Do you know how long we were waiting to see that nasty, mildly talented piece of work get kicked down? He had to beat EVERYONE other than the one they’d preordained as the winner, forcing us to ROOT for him if we wanted a non-dilettante to win the day?

    I was thinking of TiVoing the show next year and watching only if the early reviews were decent. I can’t do even that anymore. Whether or not the producers are manipulating them, the judges simply can’t be trusted any longer to give assessments that are…I’m not sure whether the word is “honest” or “sane,” but I don’t think it matters. It was fun for a few years.

      Sadly the opinion many have of the judges now, I have had for a long time.  Nina has propped up other cluster-f’s  and Kors has slammed better designs.

      thats why they did it.
      they only kicked josh down at the very very end so the person who seemed to do the kicking was anya, so those of us who didnt like anya, say, or maybe just didnt want her to win would at least be thrilled w/ her for being josh’s vindication vindicator? the person who stood in for the audience that hated josh & wanted him kicked. Our Hero[ine].

    Well…shit on a shingle.  That  was painful.  I found myself almost hoping Josh would win.  At least Clinique can freakin’ sew and drape.  Every look of Anya’s was the same over and over again.  Vicktor…you were robbed…almost worse than Mondo b/c you got no love through the entire season and your designs really were the closest of this season’s finalists to what the old PR used to be.  Sad is what I am.  I will look back on this season the way I look back on ER after Anthony Edwards left; after Ron Howard left Happy Days; after Delta Burke left Designing Women; John Goodman’s absence from Roseanne; and David Duchovny leaving Xfiles.

      This is the beginning of the long slow spiral that is the end of Project Runway. All those attached to the show don’t realize some critical piece is missing. (or more likely, don’t care).   So they keep pounding on its chest, pumping things into to to keep it going.  But that magical something that made the show work is gone, gone, gone.
     Some shows know when to leave…Mary Tyler Moore, Cheers, Seinfeld.   Some shows just let themselves die…a slow, twisted, painful end.

      Doubt it.
      She’s got her supporters, and she was certainly a more empathetic figure. Gretchen was edited to be wretchedly unlikeable and had little else to commend her, with few merits to her final collection. There has been at least some neutral-to-positive leaning feedback from the commentariat re. Anya, and even from this blog if you scroll back and look back at the top 10 collections shown at fashion week. 

      I don’t think this blog is particularly representative, and frankly, the tone of posts about Anya from TLO have been damning enough to sour her collection in more than a few readers’ eyes. Objectively, it was an underwhelming but attractively appointed collection. Just as Viktor was a technician whose vision was, occasionally, off the mark.

      I feel like they tried to script this season to be the opposite of last year.

      Anya was scripted to be the favorite (Mondo) and Josh was the annoying one you didn’t want to win (Gretchen).  And look what happened Mondo won over Gretchen.

      The issue is that they had to put so many twists and manipulations in to make that happen because she was so weak as a designer and seamstress that resentment built up for her and it backfired on them.

      IMO they missed the story that would have worked – Bert wins, overcoming the loss of his partner and friends, being out of the industry for so long and losing his way but regaining inspiration via the experience of Project Runway. And he had the design and sewing chops to pull it off without a ton of producer manipulation.

      But he’s not a pretty beauty queen and this is Lifetime TV.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=8402388 Mike Benedetto

        They could have made a story about any of the designers if need be. They always can. What they forgot was that we don’t care about the story as much as we care about the work, and we don’t want to hear the story at all if the work doesn’t merit the attention. I could give two shits about Anya’s heritage or her pageant experience or her dead brother or her sex tape–her designs were never good enough to get me interested in the woman who created them. Nor did I ever care to hear Josh’s rhapsodies on the unique fact that he has lost a parent (which was trotted out to best effect as an excuse for why he was such an asshole). 

        I don’t know…were ratings markedly awful when nice-guy Seth Aaron beat out two relatively undramatic opponents on the basis of excellent work alone?

      I think it’s especially heartbreaking because the judges were relentless in finding stupid, pointless things to criticize about Viktor all season.  The sheer looks were a misfire (although I actually sorta loved the swishy flowy one), but it’s easy to see how Viktor might have lost his mind trying to meet their contradictory demands.  I think he took Heidi’s request to make a black pants and top for the white leather jacket and tried to work that through his collection, and this was the result. 

      His loss really upsets me not just because I like him and his clothes, but because it honestly hurts to see the judges mindf*ck a designer who appears to have talent and genuine commitment to his craft, and then on top of that, humiliate him with third place.

          Yeah, just watching Viktor try harder and harder to meet the judges’ pickier and pickier demands – I got such a Charlie Brown with the football vibe all season, and hearing the judges start in on him this time was just too much.  I’m trying to remind myself of the strong likelihood that some fashion house (or department store!) will snatch him up and he’ll make loads of money he can share with that nice boyfriend.

      Why am I not shocked that the prejudging advice and extra 500 screwed Viktor while pulling Anya’s ass out of the fire? Makes for the perfect script to try and sell Josh and Anya, who were the Producers darlings all season, as the final two. Except this show couldn’t possibly be scripted. *cough* Anyway, the sheer pieces werent as impressive as the prints but sheer was on trend at the time and in no way did they serve to sell me on Josh or Anya having stronger pieces on the whole.

    This season of PR brings to mind an old joke -

    “An old man walks into a pub in Scotland, his feet shuffling, his back
    bent. He drags himself onto a stool and orders a beer. Placing the full
    glass in front of him, the bartender inquires upon his sad face.

    The man answers with a smoky and trembling voice and a Scottish accent:

    Ah, tell ya man! This pub, this very pub we’re just sitting in. I
    built it, with me own hands! But do they call me the Pubmaker? Naa! See
    the wall over there, that protects our town? I built it, with me own
    hands! But do they call me the Wallmaker? And the bridge, you know, that
    crosses our river, I built it, with me own hands! But do they call me
    the Bridgemaker?

    But I tell ya, man! YOU FUCK ONE GOAT!”

    I was willing to look past last year’s goat fucking incident, but PR has just fucked one goat too many.

But she’ll be a big star with In Touch covers galore!

    You know, I’m kind of an idiot about shows I love. I stick with everything once I become a fan, and usually until the bitter end. I have a terrible time stopping a show even when I grow to hate it. I mean, I watched the X-Files to the bitter end. But this is now off my season pass on the dvr, and I need to be done with it. I am really going to miss Tim, but they’ve neutered him so much it’s not the same anyway. 

    At least I can still check in with the bitter kittens, though, next season and bask in the snark.

    (And I’m still trying to get those cheap, gross fabrics of Josh’s out of my head. I think I’m going to have nightmares. Was that black fabric the ugliest black you’ve ever seen?)

    A travesty, but we sort of already knew that this brake-less juggernaut was barreling at us.  We just hoped there’d be some way to divert it from its collision course right into our affection for what had been a diverting and thought-provoking show that showcased innovation and talent challenged to keep inventing and speaking a voice.  I missed half of this season because I was out of the country, and I’m sincerely happy that I didn’t spend those Thursdays watching the insults to my and our intelligence multiply.

    I have other things to do on Thursday nights – like work (yes, we work late at IP Central), or seeing friends, or getting some additional time in the hay with a good. entertaining book or copping some much needed zzzs.  That will be my Thursday night prescription going forward.  Project Runway (know, dear Tom and Lorenzo, this is NOT directed at you, who are a cherished part of my existence), you’re no longer worthy of my time.

    Oh man am I bitter, disappointed but very sadly, not surprised.  The minute they started playing Gretchen’s runway music from last season when Heidi said “Victor” I knew things were going to turn out the way we all hoped they wouldn’t.  Why do the talented ones always seem to shoot themselves in the foot?  I haven’t been happy with the show since SA’s win, and that was hardly the glory season.  I said I was done with this show before, but now I really am, except maybe for that accessories show, and maybe allstars…   (Man I’ve got a pair of round heels when it comes to PR..)

    It’s weird, I usually don’t mind when reality tv is obviously rigged. But Bravo competition shows have always had a certain amount of integrity when it came to picking winners. Even last year, I may have disagreed with Gretchen winning, but I thought she was the judges honest pick. Oh well, at least I still have Top Chef, where the 9 times out of 10 the winner will be an unlikeable, lumpy looking  white guy who genuinely outcooked the fan favourites.

    I haven’t read all the comments to see how all up in arms people are about the win, but I would just like to go on record and say that for  8 long seasons, myself, my mama, and our good friend faithfully followed every episode of project runway. I never missed an episode before. This season I think I watched less than half. I haven’t even watched them on my dvr. Never have I see a group of people that I literally could not give less of a shit about. Blah, blah, and blah all around. Viktor should have won, but I can’t even work up a rage for him.

    Coming out of lurkmode (and forgive me if this has already been postulated), but the PR Allstars commercial had me wondering something. Does anyone else find the timing of Lifetims’e decision to move Allstars from November to some unspecified time in 2012 suspicious? Because, I won’t be surprised (and hardly a new sensation after this season) if Allstars ends up running in the same time-slot as NBC’s Fashion Star. Especially considering who is producing Fashion Star.

      What is this Fashion Star and who is producing it?  I am done with BM and will not be sitting through another one of their seasons.  The last All Stars I watched they gave the win to David V., who while good looking and talented, produced a collection quite underwhelming.  However, it was wonderful to see Uli again– I guess I am torn because I also love Mila.  I wonder if  they can’t jump the sinking BM ship d/t contractual obligations.

        I just looked it up.  It’s an NBC show looking for “the next big brand.”  (Anya will probably win this one too.)

        In the very brief description, they describe the “mentors” for this show.  They include Nicole Richie. Who is described–and I swear, I am not making this up, as “philanthropist, actor, author, and creative director.”

        Memo to NBC: 
        Hosting Beverly Hills charity luncheons does not make you a philanthropist. Andrew Carnegie was a philanthropist. Bill Gates.
        Being one idiot in a two-idiot “reality” show does not make you an actress. Meryl Streep is an actress. Laura Dern.
        I don’t even know what to say about the “author” title, except that it is hilarious to put that word in the same sentence with “Nicole Richie.”

        Bottom line: Whatever it is, it looks like it’s even worse than the BM PR.

    Just in case anyone is curious, I did a completely unscientific count of Anya’s looks over the course of the season. Some of my categorizations may be debatable here, but you get the gist of it. A couple notes:

    1. I counted the looks shown last week as separate looks, since everyone had time to redesign and she axed 2 out of 3 anyway. 
    2. I did not count the menswear look into the separates or pants, because really, what else was she gonna do?
    3. I counted the bathing suit/cover-up combinations as separates.
    4. Besides last week’s looks, I did not count the other pieces she scrapped for the finale, as we didn’t get to see them well enough.

    Sleeveless: 23 1/2 (the half comes from her one-sleeve dress)
    V-Neck or Open Tops: 19
    “Flowy” Looks: 19
    Dresses: 19
    Separates: 6
    High Neck: 6
    One Shoulder: 3
    Jumpsuits: 3
    Shorts: 2
    Pants: 2 (neither of which were fitted)
    Jackets: 0

    WTF? wha…. ? Viktor had the strongest, freshest POV, and I thought the black looks worked well with the colorful ones. I have never been an Anya hater, but Viktor’s collection was heads and tails above everyone else. And how the hell did Josh even come in second?? That collection was FUG

    • Anonymous

      yeah, I felt that the black looks provided a nice break for the prints. If he did all prints, they would have said too many prints. The only thing I wish was that he had kept that grey dress and left out that sheer one. But he still should’ve won regardless.

    • ginger drysdale

      um Viktor’s mirrored print was courtesy Givenchy s/s12 and that white leather jacket was Terence Koh with a splash of Burberry, so no, his point of view wasn’t especially fresh or his own….not that Anya deserved to win but i was perfectly fine with him being called 3rd

        I didn’t think it showed how bad the sheers were, but it was obvious that it almost looked like two different collections. Might he have gotten second place if there were more cohesion? He still wouldn’t have won if those who believe the *fix was always in* are right. I loved his prints.

    • Anonymous

      Coming into this episode, just from the pictures, I thought Viktor had far and away the best collection; seeing it on the runway, all that black chiffon really overwhelmed the beauty of his prints.
      Nina was right, he did miss a huge opportunity in not combining the sheer chiffon with his prints.

    • Anonymous

      Now this is where I think I disagree.  Wasn’t each one a DIFFERENT DESIGN.  with black fabric and sheer fabric has been ALL over the runways in the last couple of years.  

      I’d say it is FAR more fitting in a DESIGN COMPETITION to make 3 to 4 DIFFERENT DESIGNS with SAME FABRIC than to make 3 or 4 of the SAME DESIGN/OUTFIT with 3 to 4 DIFFERENT FABRICS. 

      Case closed (imo)

    • Mary McClelland

      I liked a lot of the chiffon. I didn’t love it more than his finale dress or some of the other things he scrapped, but I believe he thought: ‘I’m not going to win so who the eff cares – I’m going to show the stuff I want – not the stuff the judges want me to, because hell I’m at fashion week’.  I mean none of them were emotional when they realized they didn’t win and Anya wasn’t even emotional when she was pronounced winner. It was all contrived and the contestants knew it.

    If last year I was pissed, this year I don’t care.  Viktor was the clear winner, but he came in 3rd.  AS absurd as that is, it goes in hand with all the other absurdities of this boring season.  Last year I was emotionally yelling at the TV about being done with this show, this year I didn’t even want to watch the finale, I wasn’t on the edge of my seat with anticipation, I simply stopped caring.  And I am done watching this show.  Waste of time and energy.  Thanks for freeing up my schedule, BM and Lifetime.

    I’m prepared for the vitriol I’ll get — but I actually liked Anya’s clothes.  I think they were beautiful.  HOWEVER, they were all exactly alike, and looked like they were all just draped over a form at the last minute (because at least half of them were).
    The last minute “You get $500 to use at Mood!” was so blatantly their attempt to rescue her — she should have been out already for those atrocious things she showed in her mini collection.
    I think she made amazing things out of that extra chance she got — but they were so one note.  Completely.  Every single one of the other collections deserved the win more than hers, for that reason alone.
    I sat here, watching by myself saying “Oh no, they’re not!  They are!  They are!  They did!  I cannot believe they gave her the win!”
    I have really missed Tim Gunn’s blog this season…never more than right now when I would have loved to hear what he has to say about all this.
    Ridiculous.

      I think most of us agree with you at least 90%.  I thought her clothes were pretty too and everyone agrees she has great style but no originality. No one is going to yell at you for giving your opinion and I haven’t seen anyone being yelled at here except for being very rude.

      When I was showing my husband the final collections last night, he had the nicest things to say about Anya’s (and believe me, he’s not one to be impressed by a beauty queen.)  His comments after he finished looking at all of them was that he liked Anya’s the best and that’s why she shouldn’t have won — he liked it because the stuff was pretty and normal and looked like clothes people would buy at Macy’s.  There wasn’t anything new there, it was just pretty.

    I know I’m late and I do wonder what everyone’s been saying, but after watching, it seems clear to me Kimberly should have won, and I am more surprised than anyone to hear myself say that.

    Deflating and depressing outcome…and to think that TLo called it all along.  I was just hoping it wasn’t true.  Anya was a mean spirited player, took everyone’s help but offered none to others, and the most one-note collection ever.  Yeah, caftan and sandals and plunging necklines.  3 of the most disappointing outcomes recently (Irina, Gretchen, Anya) have convinced me I will not give this show another chance.  All the help they gave Anya to make sure she’d win – especially last week to keep her in the finals – means this isn’t a competition at all.  So long, Project Runway…I’ve got better things to do than sit through a sham like that again…!

        A plunge is very hard to construct — when you aren’t working with runway models.  I’ve done a lot for myself, and they are a bitch to make.  But I wear at least a DD, and it’s hard to get the right coverage when you have actual breasts.

    That bathing suit was ‘phenomenal’? Please.

    When I first tuned in they were 10 minutes along, and Joshua was–you guessed it–crying. Figured then I’d just have the show on in the background, skip all the tears, and zero in on the runway.

    The After the Runway show was interesting.  The contestants that made it to the finals seemed to be resigned to the fact that Anya was going to win no matter what and said they lines of acceptance easily.  The contestants brought back seemed to have a harder time saying their congratulations.  Laura especially was interesting to watch.  The face she made when Anya said she was moving to New York told the real truth of how she felt about Anya and her win.
