Project Runway: This Yogurt Tastes Like Personality Disorder!

Posted on August 02, 2013

This looks like a frame from a found-footage horror movie:

And they were never seen again. All that was left were scraps of eviscerated plushies – and questions.

Oh Holy Mary, Mother of Pearl, that was the most… what? What is the word we can use to describe this episode of Project Runway?

 

No….

 

No… no…

 

What? No.

 

Not exactly, no.

 

Ha ha.

No.

 

GOD, no. We suppose we’re going to have to describe it ourselves.

How about “Batshit?”

“Psych Ward?”

“Parade of Dysfunction?”

“How NOT to Make Friends and Influence People?”

“The WORST yogurt commercial ever made?”

Oh, to hell with it. Let’s just call it the craziest episode ever…

 

from beginning…

(Either these designers all have amazing reflexes and aim or those games were rigged. Who leaves Coney Island with garbage bags of cheap loot?)

… to the brutal, bitter end.

We don’t know what chemicals were used in the manufacture of all those cheap carnival toys, but whatever they were, they triggered a whole range of psychotic behavior. It was like a series of escalating explosions going off, catching other people in its wake of crazy. A Unicornucopia of Crazy, if you will.

 

And what made it hilarious was that the two people in the center of all this crazy are both so painfully awkward. They’re like characters in a sketch comedy show. Princess Snowflake Sustainicorn can’t get through an hour without constant hugging and encouragement from everyone around him, lest he collapse into a puddle of unicorn tears.

 

WHO THE FUCK ACTS LIKE THIS? WHO SITS IN DARK STAIRWELLS WITH SOMETHING THAT BELONGS IN THE BEDROOM OF A FIVE-YEAR-OLD-GIRL, WEEPING OVER A GREETING CARD?

 

But Grumpy Diana Prince isn’t much better herself. At least Snowflake is consistent in his batshittery. She veered from “I HATE YOU” to “I LOVE WORKING WITH YOU HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!” and then back again. And then back again. And then back again. ALL IN ONE DAY.

Also this:

Looks like a ransom note from someone in a tinfoil hat. Even the models are acting a little crazy.

 

We suppose we should examine the whole psycho-drama and declare who was at fault for what and who was the victim of bullying here, but frankly, we can’t be bothered. We wouldn’t want to take a 1-minute elevator ride with either of them. They honestly should never have been allowed on the show, so crazy and off-base were their actions last night.

 

He’s simply not, shall we say, emotionally mature enough for reality television and she seems to literally lose control of her emotions and actions when she gets stressed out. You’re making a dress out of  plastic fish and aliens with a guy who thinks unicorns are real. We don’t care how much you might need the prize money. At some point, you’ve just got to relax and go with it, honey. Nothing’s worth that much stress.

Also: Freddie Mercuryovich is gross but we refuse to give him the attention he desperately craves. He’s gross. Let’s leave it at that.

 

 

Helen and Kate

So congrats, Afterschool Special! You were another one who hasn’t exactly shown emotional stability in this competition (and we’re only on the THIRD CHALLENGE, people) and frankly, you seemed one bad stitch away from a breakdown through most of last night. But according to Kate (through gritted, begrudging teeth) the success of this look came down to you.

It looks great. It looks high fashion. But it wasn’t our pick.

 

Miranda and Timothy

Oh, whatever. All that crap-drama. For this. Imagine if either of them had to do an entire collection.

Still, we didn’t think it was the worst design on the runway. Even so, both designers demonstrated that they are clearly not ready; either for the rigors of the fashion industry or the rigors of the competition. We’re fine with the auf. Frankly, we thought up until the last second they were both going to be sent home. It’s only a matter of time for Grumpy Diana Prince, though. She’s marked with the scarlet C.

For “crazy.”

 

Alexandria and Dom

We would’ve given this the win. It’s adorable and it’s loaded with personality. Plus it feels more modern than anything else on that runway. Domo-kun fashion has been done before, but not to so great an extent that this looks like a cliche. And they styled her perfectly. No, this definitely should have won last night, as far as we’re concerned.

 

Alexander and Justin

And this was easily the worst look by far. But Drag Brows and Locutus both knew they’d screwed up and showed at least some maturity and professionalism on the runway. In the face of Snowflake’s multiple meltdowns, and given that some simple editing revealed a decent garment, we had no problem with both of them getting to stay, especially since we came up with “Locutus” just last night and we want to keep using it for a while.

 

Jeremy and Ken

We don’t know their aesthetics well enough to know who came up with what, but this is a surprisingly stylish and well-made look. Those pants are a revelation. The problem is that none of these pieces really look like they belong with each other. The top half is for another outfit entirely. And there’s really no way to make plastic pants look chic. They’re impressively made, though.

 

 

Sandro and Sue

Once again, a bullshit-ton’s worth of drama for a totally mediocre dress. These two things are not unrelated. People don’t go off like that unless they have no confidence in their design or skills. Sandro’s there to get attention for himself and to stir up shit, first and foremost. We can’t with that one. And Sue’s a doormat. “I think Sandro the angry, attention-seeking misogynist is fun!” “It’s for the best that I submit to Sandro.” Honey, no.

 

Bradon and Karen

We’re surprised this got waved through without comment. We thought it was mostly a spectacular dress, with one really bad element. The green and blue part looks amazing. The brown fur and stuffing are terrible additions. Again; we don’t know individual aesthetic well enough to judge, but it looks like two distinct ideas from two different designers slammed together into one dress.

      • drdarke

        @CozyCat? The Asylum on Line 3 – they want to know how fast you can turn around a script based on the “Fashionado” premise! ZERO SHARK THIRTY’s budgeting too high, so they need a quick follow-up to their surprise hit….

      Vagina dentata was all I could think. Horribleness.

      • Shibori Girl

        Snort! I haven’t heard that term since my psychological anthropology class. Thanks for the flashback….that was hilarious when I was 19.

        • Kristy Sheldon

          Psychological anthropology term? I thought that term came from a bad scifi movie about a mythical vagina with teeth. Are you tellin me that is a term you were tested on in college?

          • Shibori Girl

            Oh yeah! It was probably 1970 in an anthro class that this belief was discussed. As I vaguely recall in one particular tribe some of the men went so far as to wear penis pins to ensure that their equipment wouldn’t be bitten off. Yikes!

  • Joan Arkham

    That yogurt thing was the most awkward, ham-fisted product tie in ever. And I watch Top Chef.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      OH you’re gonna eat our yogurt!

    • conniemd

      Totally agree with this. They were two challenges awkwardly merged together. The yogurt words could have made their own challenge with fabrics from Mood. But the carnival prizes limited the ability to deliver on the words and at least halfway into the show, the yogurt words were totally forgotten. They weren’t even mentioned on the runway as an explanation for the designs

      • Margaret Nikoleit

        Exactly! When designers were working on their garments, my husband brought up that we should know what their three words were, and I replied they would probably be revealed during the runway show. And then they weren’t. ?!?

        • Glam Dixie

          They never indicated that the judges used the words as part of the judging and if the outfit fit the words in any way. So basically the whole ‘give yogurt out and get words’ thing was pointless product placement that didn’t figure into the challenge in any meaningful way.

          • Qitkat

            Which is pretty much what I told my husband when the challenge first started. How many times has this trick been pulled on the viewers before? How many times did it not matter ONE BIT? How many times will the producers insult, ahhh, screw it.

        • momjamin

          Ah. I came in just in time for the runway show, and assumed that the words for most teams were some combination of Fun, Playful, Energetic, Texture — just like yogurt, right?

          • conniemd

            What was silly was that the three yogurt words could have been an inspiration for their own challenge. Take your three words and then go to Mood and design a dress that fits the words and even yogurt itself. It made no sense combined with the unconventional products challenge as the carnival toys didn’t reflect frozen yogurt at all.

      • Sean Knight

        Frankenchallenge!

        • drdarke

          @Sean Knight – think you could add sharks to your FRANKENCHALLENGE idea…?

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        I know! God, did those two things not make any sense! “Okay… yogurt and carnival stuffy toys! Perfect!”

      • shanna bowie

        It took Heidi longer to explain the challenge than it did for her to go through all the prizes. It was like 1st, the yogurt, 2nd, the words, 3rd, games! 4th … aw hell who cares.

      • Lisa_Co

        Actually the Alexandria/Dom and Justin/Alexander teams mentioned their words in explaining the outfits to the judges. But the words didn’t seem to be used at all as criteria in the judging.

    • Eric Stott

      I don’t recall Tim or the Judges asking anyone what their inspiration words were- it was all total bullshit.

      • Sarah

        Right? I think one of the pairs mentioned it, and that was it. I was vaguely bothered by that, until I realized how ridiculous that is.

        • Eric Stott

          They might have been mentioned, but this episode has been so edited to feature the drama that the competition is by far the least important thing. There’s some talent in the room, but this has long ago become a reality show with sewing.

          • Sarah

            True dat. I’m not gonna say I didn’t enjoy the drama on this one, though, because I felt it was leading Sustainicorn down the path to auf-dom. Where I felt he deservedly belonged.

          • Eric Stott

            SandroMachoMan has got to GO NEXT

          • Sarah

            Looks good for it, that’s for sure. But they’ve been known to trick a person with editing (always!). Miranda has kinda crappy skills. Sandro, while a hideous person, it would appear, can construct. Tastelessly, but still.

          • Eric Stott

            Tasteless for certain- but the judges were lapping it up last week – They were falling over each other trying to say that the dress was NOT slutty, while still using the word Slutty. I think it was Nina who said that the strip of exposed skin “saved it”. I want a pipe full of their crack.

          • Sarah

            Yeah, that strip of exposed skin saving it was INSANE. It is tough how usually the judges don’t really know about how the contestants act in the workroom. But, now that we discuss it, mayhap Sandro is the whole reason Tim is there to comment. I mean, I can’t imagine a person that Tim would loathe more. He may be able to fill them in on his evil ways.

          • Eric Stott

            I agree, but it is supposed to be a design competition – I guess that personal behavior shouldn’t be a factor, short of outright rules violations.

          • Sarah

            Ahh, Eric, I agree with you, but I refer to your wise statement of earlier: “There’s some talent in the room, but this has long ago become a reality show with sewing.” Hence, the design takes a backseat to the performance, more often than not. And certainly since the move to Lifetime.

          • Kristy Sheldon

            And that is why Psycho Sandro is so psycho.

          • Kristy Sheldon

            I think they bonked Tim on the head years ago and made him submit to the drama loving producers. You can tell he feels stifled in his efforts to elevate this competition to be all about talent.

          • drdarke

            @Eric Stott – after Sandro’s comment about women in the confessional, my niece was ready to drive down to NYC just to stab him in the eye with a plastic fork.

            Which will, I imagine, be kind next to what my wife will want to do when she hears it!

            Thankfully, my kid brother (the bi Right Winger?) wasn’t with us for this episode. I imagine he would have punched the air and gone “WOOF! WOOF! WOOF!” – at which point my niece and all the female cats in the house would have just shredded him into tiny chunks, which they would have fed to the raccoons in the back yard….

          • http://beautyforrealgirls.blogspot.com/ accidental housewife

            @drdarke:disqus – Ha! I like the way your niece thinks. I’d happily stand in line with her to dish out the appropriate punishment.

            You know, I think Sandra thought he was saying something kind and considerate. It was quite the opposite, of course. How I longed to kick him in the shins.

            PS: After reading the first two paragraphs, I knew you left this comment before I even saw your name. :-)

          • drdarke

            @accidentalhousewife:disqus – what can I say? My wife, niece and I end up watching a lot of television together…. And sometimes my kid brother comes along for the ride.

            My wife and niece are strong feminists – which gets…interesting when my brother is around….

          • eurotiales

            It’s disturbing to see a man who hates women that much, seek a career in dressing women. I feel for the female staff who come his way. :/

          • Kristy Sheldon

            I named him Sandro Psycho Man with inferiority complex.

          • quiltrx

            Too bad they don’t even SHOW the sewing anymore! Just who doesn’t know how to thread the machine. Sheesh.

        • CozyCat

          The only pair that mentioned it was the first one (Brandon and Karen). They had to get the word “fluffy” in there, which explains their strange materials choices.

          • Eric Stott

            At least it was awful in a memorable way

    • Rhonda Shore

      it was really shameful…it almost reminded me of the early days of television when the star of a sitcom would suddenly say “Maxwell House coffee is just so perfect with your breakfast!” or whatever.

    • pdquick

      I’m gonna go buy that yogurt just to thank them for bringing me the best laugh I’ve had in weeks. I started howling when Miss Sustainability started sobbing, and by the time she got to “I should have danced more” while clutching her vinyl unicorn and heading for the door, I could barely catch my breath. Thank you, Yoplait.

    • LAMusing

      hahahhaha yep! And they’ve had some absurd ones in the past – didn’t they have bathroom candles as an “inspiration” last season? But this one was so awkward, random and disconnected to the actual challenge it was just… weird.

  • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

    “A Unicornucopia of Crazy” That says it all.

    • MoHub

      Phrase of the Century.

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        It really is. Especially if you actually sat through that shit last night. Sure, those that just come for the recaps will laugh, but will they GET it?

        • demidaemon

          There is no way to experience Timothy’s berating of Miranda on the runway without seeing it. It started with the Titanic and quickly delved into the realm of WTF for at least 5 minutes (and chances were, it was edited). Heidi gave Miranda a chance to respond and Miranda seemed at a loss for words. I mean, who wouldn’t be?

      • Courtney

        Totally. I laughed pretty hard when I read that; it’s such a perfect descriptor of what flashed across our screens last night.

      • majorbedhead

        I plan on incorporating that into my conversations frequently.

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      Last night was my first time in the TLo Lounge. It made watching so much more bearable!

    • EveEve

      annabelle archer, the Lounge was very … something… last night! ;)

  • http://heartprintandstyle.com/ Vivi N

    Dom and Alexandria wuz so robbed. Ugh. I felt the challenge was meant to showcase the fun in their designs using fun, playful items. And their outfit fit that challenge to a t. Yeah, Kate and what-her-name did a fantastic job with their sombero but the final product was just so…so…predictable. Like, yeah, this is meant to be a fun challenge but let’s show these judges we can make it high fashion, too. Bleh.

    • Rhonda Shore

      Another thing about Dom and Alexandria’s dress that I loved was that it really didn’t look like it was made out of carnival materials…it looks like it was soft and would be a comfortable garment to have on. It was so much fun, so whimsical and creative, with such impeccable styling.

      • Alfie

        it’s not entirely original though. search “domo dress” on google.

        • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

          The Domo dress that comes up first and most often in google is a photoshopped image.

          • Rhonda Shore

            I didn’t know about the whole Domo dress thing…still, they added their own touches, like the patterned bottom, the moustache, the heart…still love it!

        • d4divine

          OH DAMN! SNAP!!

        • Marilyn McNeely

          I saw that too, but upon further investgation found out that the eyes and mouth were photoshopped on.

      • StellaZafella

        If snuggies looked like that I might consider getting one…I’d love to reread Harry Potter or any of my Pratchett Discworld series wearing that…on a rainy afternoon…with a pot of tea.

        • Margaret Nikoleit

          Pratchett! You have excellent taste in literature.

        • AnguaVonUberwald

          May I join you?

        • Levedi

          Ooh – a Pratchett and ironic snuggies with tea club would be awesome. We could all read in cozy corners and ignore each other except when laughing out loud.

      • d4divine

        I agree, Dom and Alexandria were the clear winners.

    • Inspector_Gidget

      I liked it a lot, too. I think Dom may be a sleeper contender.

    • Sweetpea176

      The only reason I wouldn’t have given the win to Dom and Alexandria is that they used fabric as fabric and Kate and Helen didn’t. Given the materials available, though — lots of plush and vinyl — it didn’t look like the designers had too many options. But I loved D & A’s — really cute.

      • Levedi

        You have a good point.

  • Danielle

    Not only does he think unicorns are real, he thinks they’re rhinos.

    • MoHub

      Actually, he thinks they’re related to hippos—which are not related to rhinos—and that both have cloven hooves, which they don’t.

      • StellaZafella

        Aren’t Hippo’s distantly related to horses? I thought I got that from some Attenborough documentary…hence the “Hippo—”
        Still, no cloven hooves and, alas, no unicorns.

        This old drag queen says: Sustainicorn isn’t even funny/silly for a gay boy.

        • MoHub

          Nope. It used to be thought that they were related to pigs, but recent research has found that they’re cetaceans. They’re actually whales that found their way back to land, and it’s reflected in how smart they are. There’s a couple in South Africa with a pet hippo who has her own bed in the house and figured out how to operate the door latch to let herself in an out.

          Hippopotamus is indeed Greek for river horse, but the Greeks weren’t being scientific.

          • Sarah

            This is delightful information. I am now going to learn more about hippos for my own edification (working in the library is so fun…)

          • MoHub

            I’m a hippo fanatic and have been collecting various iterations of the beast for decades. They are amazing creatures and one of the few animals so little is known about. They were also added to the Endangered Species list a year or two ago, so we need to keep the cause alive.

          • Angela Langdale

            Okay, all together now… I want a hippopotamus for Christmas! Only a hippopotamus will do! No crocodiles, or rhinoceruseses, I only like, hippopotomuseses! and hippopotamuses like me too! hee hee…

          • MoHub

            And I happen to own the sheet music for that. Of course!

            However, it’s wrong in that hippos aren’t strict vegetarians; they’ll eat meat if no plant food is available and will even cannibalize the dead losers of alpha-male battles. They’ll also eat the leftover meat from crocodile kills.

          • Suzanne S

            A few years ago when flipping channels, I saw a hippo being fed an entire watermelon (large one, not the ‘mini/personal’ size ones. The watermelon was gently thrown into his open mouth. The hippo DEMOLISHED that watermelon in 1 bite, rind and all. It was quite impressive (not that I’ve been checking YouTube at least once a year to see a clip of it or anything….)

          • Sarah

            My brother, a 43 year old man, is enamored with hippos and rhinos. Not since childhood, but as an adult. I think he likes their mass and power, or something (also, cuteness of a sort). So I give him figurines and stuff…I will now search for this video and post it on his FB page forthwith.

          • Kathryn Sanderson

            My French teacher in high school had a thing about hippos. He said it started when he tried to teach kids how to say “hippopotame” (hippo in French), and people started bringing them to him. I still put hippos on his Facebook wall sometimes….

        • Kathryn Sanderson

          The word hippopotamus comes from the Greek for “river horse” but they aren’t related to horses. WTF were those Greeks (or scientists who knew Greek words) thinking, anyway? They couldn’t have gotten a good look at hippos…they don’t look like any horse I’ve ever seen, except maybe a Clydesdale. But Clydesdalepotamus just doesn’t sound right.

    • MartyBellerMask

      DUDE. Unicorns are actually narwhals, even my 7 year old knows that. *gosh*

      • majorbedhead

        I thought mermaids were really narwhals. I’m always confusing my mythical creatures.

        • MartyBellerMask

          Mermaids = manatees :)

  • MilaXX

    Did the producer decide that Snowflake Sustainicorn couldn’t wear his weighted vest? Sheesh. Totally agree they could have had a double auf last night and Dom/Alexandria were robbed.

    • MoHub

      Not so much “could have” as “should have.”

      • Sarah

        Ya know, I felt a *leetle* bad for Miranda. Just a tiny bit, at one moment – wherein she tried to apologize, and Timothy, who is supposed to be so emotionally feely, SHUT HER DOWN. He was cold. So, it seems he has a little, sparkly, high-heeled, mean streak. But yeah, I then reconsidered, because Miranda reminded me of how I would act before I got prescribed meds for that.

        • CozyCat

          I think he’s very good at provoking people, falling apart when they react, and then playing the victim when they try to apologize for the way they reacted.

          Not that her behavior was completely excusable–blowing up and yelling at him would have been much more justifiable than sitting around saying incredibly mean things behind his back. But he’s got a good technique for staying in control.

          • Sarah

            You’re right. I see how he’s a manipulator, and really, it was silly of me to view him in the two-D manner that TV gives us. I mean, he is immature – that’s obvious, I think – but he is also an adult, so he has to have developed a modus operandi for interacting with people by now. I just don’t like how he does it. As for Miranda, I think she dismisses him as a fool, and so do most of the other contestants, and that’s why she acted so poorly.

          • NYCGlamourpuss

            But here’s the issue I had with it: yes, I get that being around someone like Timothy can be trying, and that one might even pop off at him in the heat of the moment. I get that. But that’s not what she did – she went on and on and on, trashing him to the whole work room, and then keeping it up after it was pointed out that he was in the room, because she felt justified somehow. And that’s different. That’s outright venom, which from what I saw, he didn’t deserve.

        • Miranda Prince

          I felt a little bad for Princess Sustainicorn when Miranda was trash-talking him right there in the sewing room while he was there, and Sandro was laughing at what she was saying. That just felt really cruel to me. (And I cannot freaking *stand* Sustainicorn). I guess he should have accepted her apology, but she really was pretty awful to him.

          • Sarah

            Oh, yeah, she was totally mean. I agree. I just thought she sort of realized that, and made an (admittedly bumbling) attempt to apologize, which he was not at all gracious about.

          • Miranda Prince

            True. I think they’re both asses, really. If Heidi had aufed them both, I could have gotten behind it. (And I wanted to like Miranda … sigh.)

          • Sarah

            Yes. Dual assery. Them and this Sandro beast. They do have to fill the season up, so, as we say, cannon fodder.

          • Scoobydrew

            Not a fan of Sustainicorn, but I don’t think he should have accepted her apology … he felt it was fake. he’s probably right, and why should he give her bad behavior a pass? There was a time when I was a doormat and I would let people do horrible things and then give them a pass and pretend to be okay with what they have done, when I still felt pretty awful about it. Now, if I think they are feeding me a line, no i don’t accept.

          • demidaemon

            In the end, though, her behavior on the runway was much more respectable and professional than his. I think how she will be perceived is how she acts in the future; Sustainacorn was doomed.

          • Scoobydrew

            of course it was more respectable, and she downplayed the whole situation. I’m glad Substainicorn went home, he deserved to go home – and I think he knew that … Still I think she came off looking way worse than she did

    • d4divine

      I loved Kelly Osbourne’s comment about the vest looking like a youtube project.

      • CozyCat

        Actually, she said that there are videos on youtube which show you how to make that textile effect–which is even worse!

        I think that was the moment when Timothy’s fate was decided.

        • wontons

          “I have this technique…” Timothy is so pleased with how innovative he is, yet he’s not au courant enough to check out Etsy. Then again, his computer is powered by a bellows lubricated with unicorn tears, so maybe it’s hard for him to keep up.

          • Sarah

            HAHAHA….and yet, he hove to that highly manmade plushy uni-monstrosity as if it was his mother’s teat, did he not? Inconsistency, oh how you love a hypocrite.

          • Jane Morris

            Maybe he is the one that made the youtube video.

    • Inspector_Gidget

      Definitely should have been a double elimination. Shame on Lifetime and Bunim Murrary for even letting these unstable people into the competition. It’s a thin line between reality TV and Jerry Springer.

      • http://www.GiftedCollector.com/ The Gifted Collector

        And we used to pay her to carry a gun!

        • BeccaGo

          That’s what kills me – how did she ever survive boot camp?

      • Deb Oswald

        THAT is so true! However, it is a riveting season- once your divorce yourself from any connection to reality and reason. And it was a hoot to watch- what a rollercoaster ride. We had such a good time on Twitter!! LOL. couldn’t type fast enough!

  • Isabel

    Zac kept staring at the model wearing Jeremy and Ken’s outfit. For several moments, I thought he was turning hetero!

  • Danielle

    Locutus – AWESOME!

    • Perfect Liar

      Locutus is a cyborg… so if by “awesome” you and TLo mean “horribly offensive to imply that the deaf guy is not entirely human,” then yes.

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        No, we’re pretty sure he meant “awesome” like “compared to this iconic bald sci-fi character he vaguely resembles and who also had tech implants.”

        Go ahead and be offended. I can’t stop you. But we’re not saying he’s “less than human” anymore than we’re saying Sandro is really Freddie Mercury or Miranda is really Diana Prince or Timothy really is a princess named Snowflake Sustainicorn.

        • Danielle

          Thanks, TLo, for saying pretty much exactly what my response was going to be. Now I don’t have to type that all out.

        • MoHub

          And it beats calling him Davros by a long shot.

          • Eric Stott

            thumbs up for an old school Doctor Who reference

          • MoHub

            Thanks! I am a hopeless devotee of classic Who, and try as I might, I just don’t care for the current iteration. However, with Peter Capaldi assuming the role next, I have a little glimmer of hope—
            although much will depend on the writing.

          • Eric Stott

            I’ve had no problems with the actors in the current reboot, but the scripts have been so message-laden.

          • MoHub

            My main issue with NuWho has been the companion-centric element, which peaked when it became The Amy Pond Show. I love a good companion, but his or her role should be to support the Doctor, and this hasn’t been the case since the advent of the new series.

          • Eric Stott

            I think it’s nice that the companions have become more active than reactive (in the beginning the girls were mostly there to scream DOCTOR!!!) but the more depth you give to the companions the more you pull the focus.

          • MoHub

            Barbara was nobody’s screamer and may have been one of the best companions of all. And Leela and Ace were certainly able to take care of themselves.

        • Perfect Liar

          I didn’t claim anything. Cyborgs aren’t human. Locutus is a cyborg. You called him Locutus. And the fact that you can’t see the difference between comparing someone with an over-the-top style to Freddie Mercury and someone with a hearing device to a murderous alien-like creature troubles me.

          Obviously you can and should defend yourselves all you want, but you really should just admit that you say douchey things sometimes, whether you mean to or not.

          • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

            Cyborgs are human. They’re humans with technology implants. Enhanced humans.

            And we’re sorry, but we’re not going to admit anything we don’t truly believe just because you think we should. You can insert all kinds of external meanings that we never said, like “less than human” and “murderous alien-like creature” all you want or you can accept that we made the comparison based on surface similarities, as we do with all our nicknames. That’s on you.

            The fact that you think we can make fun of all the contestants on Project Runway except the one with a hearing disability, and don’t see how that’s both misguided and horribly condescending, troubles us.

          • vidacelina

            I know this was a month ago, but I just want to say I agree with you. Calling someone with a cochlear implant a cyborg is pretty awful.

          • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

            So, Justin jokingly referred to himself as “The Bionic Man” in the finale episode; a joke exactly the same as the one I made. I’m gonna bet that you not only didn’t think he was a douche for saying it, but you never once considered you might have been wrong for calling me a douche for making the same joke.

        • Levedi

          Bravo. Well said.

      • crackineggs

        Thank you for posting this. I have a seven year old son with bilateral CIs and my heart broke a little when I read that.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    The product placement is getting weirder with every season.

    I’m glad you guys noticed the unlikelihood of leaving with all that loot. I guess if they’re playing against each other, but not against the house? I don’t know. That was big loot for half an hour or so.

    Timothy and Miranda — agreed, their dress wasn’t the worst, but their teamwork was terrible, and one of them deserved to go home. It was annoying.

    Dom and Alexandria — this was the team I wanted to see more of, and the one I wanted to win. That dress just made me happy. It was a really appropriate use of materials.

    Kate and Helen — worked well together, but more in the sense of Helen deciding to be an apprentice. It was an interesting way to use the materials. Not my favorite dress, but creative thinking, which is probably what got it the win.

    Alexander and Justin — won all the wrong prizes to make anything like a decent look, and didn’t do well with what they had. But you know, they were grown-ups. I bet everyone else in the workroom envied Justin’s ability to turn off the hearing aid this time around.

    Jeremy and Ken — what a well-fit pair of shiny pants. They went the opposite route from Dom and Alexandria, and decided to make something that doesn’t look like it came from carny prizes.

    Sandro and Sue — Really? A handkerchief dress made of inflatable carcasses?

    Braden and Karen — Well, props for trying to use the stuffing. On the shoulder, it was pretty cool. Hanging out from under the skirt, it isn’t.

    • Melanie

      Justin doesn’t wear a hearing aid. It’s a cochlear implant, which is totally different. Not trying to nitpick, but there really is a big difference.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        Okay. He called it a hearing aid in an earlier episode when he said he was turning it off in the workroom. Maybe that was just because he figured people would know the word.

        • Melanie

          Did he? I must have missed that. Thanks for letting me know. I do that sometimes, too – it is easier!

    • Kathryn Sanderson

      Bradon and Karen’s dress reminded me of a Season 4 challenge where Christian Siriano was paired with Chris March. They had to make a couture dress and an RTW version. Their couture dress had a big foofy thing on one shoulder…and for some reason Chris made a really similar dress in the Metropolitan Museum challenge later that season.

  • MartyBellerMask

    So they had to win the prizes they used for materials? WHATEVS. But it’s not quite accurate to say the games would have to be rigged. They already ARE rigged. The games would have had to be “un-rigged”. :-)

    • Eric Stott

      Differently Rigged might be the term

    • d4divine

      If i had to win prizes for that challenge, my model would have been naked. Lol

  • MoHub

    Does anyone know why Sandro/Sue’s model kept fluffing up the front of the skirt? Was it an effect, or was it sticking to her?

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      I kept thinking,”honey, get your hands outta there!”

      • Eric Stott

        I don’t think that any of that material is breathable – she might have been trying to let some air in to evaporate the sweat.

      • StellaZafella

        As long as they have to wait around off camera to shoot the runway segments…wearing that much rubberized plastic…I’d need to air the goods a bit too!

  • GTrain

    I love love LOVED Dom & Alexandria’s and it really pisses me off that they lost to the Helen/Kate phony lovefest. I would have put Jeremy & ken in second over sombrero dress.

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    For once in a great while the efforts that truly desrerved top marks got them. I now want to punch Sandro in this moosch until he cries. What in inane bully. And that mysogynistic remark about women listening to men? Grrrrrrrrrrr.

    • MoHub

      He obviously doesn’t know what network he’s on.

      And am I the only one who finds Kate condescending and phony? I cringe every time she hugs someone.

      • sundaynightaddict

        She’s desperately trying not to come off as a bitch this season. Even though it’s probably not authentic, I think it’s a smart move if she wants to work for other people in industry after PR.

        • Melanie

          See, I don’t understand this. I didn’t think she came off as a bitch last season. I think she was reacting to the Mean Girls. I was disappointed when, at the reunion, she seemed to back down from her comments.

          • NYCGlamourpuss

            Yeah, I never got her as bitchy at all, either this season or last. I mentioned in my Lounge post – I think she’d LIKE to be “the season bitch”, but she isn’t really mean enough to pull it off.

          • CozyCat

            She had a few interviews where she said some bitchy things. And she was pretty forcefull with the sweet asian guy in the challenge where they were kicked off. I think that’s why she was left with the bitchy rep.

            Agree that she’s trying (perhaps a bit too hard) to undo that impression this session.

          • sundaynightaddict

            For the record, I don’t think she was much of a bitch last season either, but I think that was the prevailing opinion and that’s what she’s reacting to.

        • d4divine

          Yeah, she’s definitely trying to make up for her past mistakes…which I think is a little unfair to the rest of the contestants.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        Not by a long shot. I don’t believe her at all.

        • Sarah

          Me either. She seethes.

        • MoHub

          All I need to do is remind myself that she wore a tiara to the reunion. She really believes that she’s a Special Princess who is not at the low level of others. However, she graciously allows them to bask in her presence while pretending to like them.

    • NMMagpie

      That remark made me want to retch. This guy is either a producer plant or seriously in need of some help to control that out-of-control whatever it is he drags around.

      • OrigamiRose

        I finally watched Road to the Runway the other day, and if I recall correctly, Sandro bragged during his segment about being a rageaholic, and demonstrated his temper for the cameras. I have no doubt that sealed his casting.

        Hopefully next week will be his last, with the apparent stomp-off and assault on a camera(person).

        • Eric Stott

          He seriously needs a large man to do perverted and unprintable things to him……oh I take that back, he’d probably enjoy it.

        • Therese Bohn

          Yes please. Please let next week be Sandro’s last! Mr. Vagina Shorts should have been auffed in the first episode.

        • KateShouldBeWorking

          Seriously. Thank god he didn’t have scissors in his hand when he lost it.

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          I hope so too. The producers have to draw the line somewhere with these wackos.

          • EveEve

            If the producers didn’t kick him off for attacking the camera guy (if he really did, and that wasn’t just an editing tease), the show’s lawyers should have. Assault and battery is not funny.

          • MoHub

            If he did indeed assault a crewmember, he is even worse than Keith in season 3, who was kicked off for having pattern books, leaving the set without permission, and using the Internet.

    • tb

      Have a mimosa. On me. Maybe you will get to the lounge again soon. Use this phrase “it is enhancing my performance on the job”.

    • Joan Arkham

      I don’t mind “casting for drama” if they have the goods to back it up. It is entertainment, after all. But his designs are pure Russian Mob Wife.

      • TonyGo

        What the hell was he wearing at judging last night? One shoulder overall (no “s” I guess, since at that point they would be singular)? Paired with a “wild and crazy guy” disco shirt? No thanks.

        • housefulofboys

          My 20-year-old son walked in and saw him on the screen in that outfit and asked, “is he wearing one shoulder overall(s)? and a shiny shirt? and what the hell is he saying, I can’t understand a word?!” And then he saw the sustainicorn, and proceeded to sit down to watch the rest of the show. “I just have to see what this is…don’t tell my brothers!”

        • Joan Arkham

          I remember the overalls as “early 90s club kid”. But they had a sense of humor about themselves.

    • Sweetpea176

      I despise him, but I think he’s the equivalent of a troll on an internet forum. Not that he’s not a mysogynist — I’m sure he is. But I think those remarks are intended to inspire outrage. I even wonder if they’re scripted for him, they’re so heavy-handed. This season, I’m actually wondering if several of them aren’t being directed to play characters.

      And no way is he really 28.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        I ma glad to hear you voice that. I’ve long wondered if a percentage of “designers” are brought on, scripted to play a character role, and paid off once they are auffed. Its all jsut getting to be too formulaic and pat.

        • Lisa_Co

          I’ve been wondering the same; hardly any fashion school grads now, 1 contestant can’t even thread a sewing machine. PR does seem to be an accumulation of characters more than anything else.

        • ClevelandburbsBeth

          This is why I stopped watching Survivor after being a fan from the beginning. The first, I don’t know, 10 seasons or so, there were enough “real” people there for me to enjoy the format – REAL people surviving deprivation, physical challenges, etc. Then the contestants, male and female started to get cuter, taller, thinner and DULLER. And the ones who weren’t those things, the “real-looking” ones, had crazy personalities. It’s clear that it’s all casting now, not fans of the concept who want to outwit, outplay, outlast. My husband still watches it because hey, EVERY woman looks amazing in a bikini. More power to him.

  • dharmabum8

    Grumpy Diana Prince = Emo Mary Katherine Gallagher You just know sometimes she likes to put her hands in her armpits and….

    I also would have given the win to Dom and Alexandra. I appreciated the clever little details, like replacing one of the eyes with a heart and the cheeky little mustache, that made their piece adorable and witty rather than ridiculous.

    British Daddy is the king of trousers this season. He’s got some impressive tailoring skills.

    • Qitkat

      I snorted at *armpits*! So perfect. I knew she reminded me of someone.

      If I had know that D&A’s outfit was an homage to domo-kun, and known what that is, I would have appreciated it more. I thought it was cute and whimsical, but nothing else, but I would have been fine with their win. But I agreed with the judges (gasp!) on the clever sombrero dress.

    • TonyGo

      At home, I’ve been calling Miranda Computer Says No.

      • StellaZafella

        Two thumbs up for the Little Britain reference.

      • MoHub

        Perfect! David Walliams would be proud.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    I’m just relieved a decent dress won and a shitty dress lost. Way to set the par low, Project Runway!

  • Calinda_L

    The whole Coney Island scene was so staged, they even brought in their own “public” for the designers to give ice cream to. I’m sure the show’s always been staged to some extent, but I do recall other “interact with the public” style challenges that at least included people that [appeared to be] were naturally at whatever the oddball filming location of choice was (I’m thinking specifically of a challenge where they had to get clothing pieces from the public to use as their fabric; this is neither the best or only example, of course).

    • demidaemon

      In most reality competition shows, the crowds are either paid for or invited. Otherwise, they would never have enough people for the challenges that require it (think of all the events on Top Chef and its spin-offs).

      • Calinda_L

        My point was that when they have elements of the competition at a public venue — such as a park, city center or amusement park — it looks much more natural (even though it is all clearly staged) if there are crowds of people around that they can at least pretend were the source of the “public” participants. In this instance, it was a rainy and cold day and there were clearly no other people around for any time other than the product-placement portion of the Coney Island scene.

        So, to be more accurate, I should actually say that my point was that PR used to have a slightly higher (A) production quality and (B) level of integrity when it came to incorporating sponsors in the challenges (and even if B was lacking, A made up for it a bit).

  • Agador Spartacus

    HOLD THE PHONE. He thinks unicorns are real?

    • NMMagpie

      That was the needle-scratch moment of the night for me, too. He’s in need of so much help, you cannot laugh at him. It is best that he was auf’d. I am sure the pressure of the rest of the competition would have broken him completely.

      • Agador Spartacus

        Wow. Just… wow. I haven’t been watching this season – just reading these recaps – but it sounds like I’m missing a whole lot of crazy shenanigans!

        • Melanie

          Yeah, he was *really* indignant that people think “unicorns are just horses with horns,” when actually “they’re cloven-hooved and more closely related to hippos.” It was something to see.

          • Rhonda Shore

            Whether or not he really believes in unicorns or it’s a pose, he is clearly unstable and needs help. I cringed at the way he was treated, with Diana’s nasty jokes and everyone else laughing and ganging up on him. It seemed like the very real bullying of a person in clear need of therapy and i found that part of the show really painful to watch.

          • Melanie

            Oh, I’m with you. I kept yelling at the TV when she was moaning about how she was embarrassed at the way she treated him and how bad she felt – because she still, NOT ONCE, ever apologized for doing it. Not to him and not in her confessional. That’s toddler 101: if you feel bad for hurting someone, you fucking apologize.

          • NYCGlamourpuss

            Exactly. I mean, look, he’s a grown man who thinks unicorns are real and clearly has some issues. But you don’t fucking treat someone like that. And like you, I never once heard the words “I’m SORRY” come out of her overly-entitled mouth. By the time the episode wrapped, I hated her WAY more than him. In fact, I just felt sorry for Timothy – he’s delusional and I don’t like him, but I don’t think he’s a bad person. Miranda on the other hand? Yes, given the utter venom in the tear that she went on, I would say there’s a possibility that there IS a bad person lurking under those tattoos and ironic hipster eyeglasses.

          • Call me Bee

            Overly-entitled? She comes from a one-parent family where she had to take care of her siblings while her mom worked.

          • Lisa_Co

            Upon 2nd viewing I saw that as Timothy stormed off to have his meltdown, Helen was screaming at Miranda to get her shit together and make the team work. So Timothy had kind of an unnoticed ally.

          • Gloriana Reginata

            Not quite fair: she does (around the time they’re doing the model fitting) admit that she was rude and acted like an asshole (her words). And he comes back quite cold and pretty much refuses to acknowledge that as an apology, which is not surprising, given his level of maturity and how she had behaved. But the thing that was the telling difference between them is that she spoke up initially on the runway to take the blame, and then he turned it into a mud-sling. That surprised me, because before he had tended to go from extreme over-reaction at criticism to unwarranted optimism in two blinks of an eye.

            Her fault was, rather, her total and utter negativity about working with him from the start. She could have used his energy and bounce to channel into her own work if she’d had the slightest ability to manage people (ie, manipulate them), and if she’d had any interesting ideas of her own.

          • Melanie

            No. Admitting you did a shitty thing is not the same as apologizing for doing the shitty thing. There was nothing for him to “acknowledge” because there never was an apology. I agree that the runway was kind of gross, and I’m not sorry he’s gone, but she really never did say she was actually sorry.

          • CozyCat

            I’ll take what she did (admitting that she had done something bad) over the classic “I’m sorry if what I said offended you.”

            But it is true that she was more appalled by what she had done than by the fact that she had done it to him. I think she knew she should have told him off rather than behaving childishly and unprofessionally behind his back.

  • veriance

    Ok, can someone explain why the perfectly coherent Justin gets subtitles and the bizarre and incomprehensible ramblings of Sandro don’t?

    Also, I hated this episode. Which is a first for me. Hated it.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Yeah, I wondered about that, too. Then again, I’d rather be perfectly clear on what Justin is saying. I’m not sure I want to know what Sandro’s flapping his gums about.

      • MoHub

        Sadly, I can understand them both just fine. Maybe not sadly regarding Justin, but certainly regarding Sandro.

    • DuBey2

      I speak Sandro. Here is a translation of last night:
      ” &(&)_ #%$* @$ ^*&(# #$$*& and then **^*^%% #W^$% !!!!

      • demidaemon

        Don’t forget, “Women should always be on their knees before me!”

        (This is a gross yet accurate interpretation of his words last night.)

    • Levedi

      Yeah, I hear you. If we hadn’t been told he had an implant and interpreter, I wouldn’t have known he was deaf. When he first started talking, I just thought “what an interesting accent. I wonder where he’s from?” The captioning seems like a knee-jerk “he’s disabled so we have to give him special helps” response.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    I pretty much felt like this entire episode was fodder for The Soup, or called for a Mystery Science Theater 3000-style riffing. The frozen yogurt shilling was embarrassing and awkward, but I loved the ridiculous adjectives the “taste testers” came up. I completely lost it with the “sit in a closet and cry over a unicorn” bit. If Christopher Guest ever makes a mockumentary about the fashion design industry he should totally steal that one!

    As for the clothes, Alexandria and Dom’s was my favorite. If they produced that into a tshirt I would totally be first in line to buy it. Alexander and Justin’s looked like a dollar store mermaid Halloween outfit. I liked Kate and Helen’s look, but I thought Jeremy and Ken’s should have been number two. Making pants must have been extremely difficult, and their look is polished and chic.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      It totally felt like a Christopher Guest movie last night. I’m pretty sure I heard “I just hate you and I hate your ass face!” This movie needs to happen, I miss his work.

      • StellaZafella

        A Christopher Guest movie would, at least, make us laugh while we cringe.

    • Carrieanno

      Since A & D didn’t get the win they deserved, I hope Kelly Osbourne acknowledges their creativity by actually wearing it as she said she “totally” would love to.

      • CozyCat

        That was my favorite moment of the night! Just look at Kelly, she TOTALLY would wear that outfit.

        And every time Nina praised their styling I thought: “just turn your head, Nina…”

        Basically I think Helen and Kate won because the dress Heidi would wear will always trump the dress the guest judge would wear (unless it’s a “design for the guest judge” challenge…)

    • Margaret Nikoleit

      Christopher Guest mockumentary would be great!

    • deitybox

      See now you have me wondering if Timothy isn’t secretly some brilliant sketch comedy actor who infiltrated the show as stealth marketing for an upcoming Christopher Guest movie.

      • Scoobydrew

        Mind blown.

    • BeccaGo

      RASPBERRY TOWN!!

  • MissMariRose

    That last dress reminds me of Van Gogh’s Starry Night. I wonder if that was deliberate.

    • veriance

      Ooo! Now I see that too. Nice!

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        YES! I never got that until you mentioned it!

    • Carrieanno

      That was my first impression (aside from the fluffy stuff).

      • Eric Stott

        It looks better in the picture than on the runway – you can see the design. In real life it’s just plastic and I’ve seen better dresses at the Coney Island Mermaid Parade.

  • BitterOldQueen

    I generally dismiss this challenge as a big ol’ Whatever. The hat-dress was sculptural and creative, and I’m fine with its win–the failure of the perfectly nice Tokyo street fashion shout-out does not make me sad in any way (although I liked Jeremy and Ken’s thing more than “safe” and think that Sandro’s wad of plastic should have gone home). What DOES get my goat (or my stuffed monkey) is the undisguised fakerly. C’mon, PR: you can manipulate and script as much as you want, but please just keep the pretense up. The howlingly manipulated “random” pairing of the Wisconsin Wackadoodles was the biggest annoyance to me, and it also set up one of them to be auf’d from the start (not that I oppose the auf-ing of talentless crazies, but the hamhandedness of the producers was a tad less than subtle). That left me, annoyingly, with a touch of sympathy for them, since had they been paired with saner partners they might have not crashed and burned so amusingly. Anyway, it screamed set-up from the start, as did the sad little group of “random people on the boardwalk”– given that the weather was clearly cold and drizzly, I suspect many of those walkers-by sampling frozen yogurt on a cold and blustery day were producers, staff, and relatives of producers and staff (there was nothing sadder, really, than Tim under his umbrella on the beach). And yes, the carnie games were obviously set up to make sure the designers got the big prizes so they’d have some fabric. I would have found it much more fun if they’d had to make dresses out of fifteen hundred Chinese finger traps and a handful of plastic nose rings, which I suspect is what most people would leave Coney Island with. An annoying episode that I shall simply ignore.

    • RroseSelavy

      RIght, and I think it was also about 8 am. Sure, handing out yogurt to random passersby at 8 am at Coney Island. I must say, though, it was a good ad for the amazing quality of prizes there, at least compared with the stuff I usually see at carnivals. I saw that phony Milwaukee matchup coming from about six miles away.

    • wontons

      Hey, though, the interpreter with Tim was one of the most stylish people I’ve seen on this show in a while. Beautiful rainy-day look!

    • EveEve

      I have this crazy theory that the Wisconsin Wacadoodles are secretly a brother and sister team (which totally changes how one would view their interpersonal dynamic)…and all will be revealed soon…

      • Call me Bee

        Actually–Unicorn Boy is from elsewhere, and has just recently moved to Milwaukee. He must be from some money, as he has a studio set up downtown in a huge space with many looms and whatnotm none of which comes cheap. Miranda is born and bred….

        • EveEve

          well Bee (if I may call you that :) ) since you’re a native of Milwaukee I defer to your inside intel. Maybe they were separated at birth are being set up for some weird reality show mashup. Just as long as it isn’t anything like my beloved Laverne & Shirley.

      • Sweetpea176

        All I could think about was how much alike they looked!

      • BitterOldQueen

        I love that crazy theory! And they kinda look alike anyway….

  • tinyredlocks

    LOCUTUS! I love you guys much…

  • nannypoo

    I loved the sombrero dress. Alexandra and Dom’s entry was adorable and clever. But I actually loved Jeremy and Ken’s outfit the most. I agree that the fabrics for the top and bottom were an odd combination, but they were working with the crap they had and came up with interesting and stylish pieces that fit well. By far the worst for me was Alexander and Justin’s tacky little entry, but I was happy to see Timothy go. He needed to be put out of his misery and so did we. If only Miranda (who looks just like him – I could hardly stand to look at the two of them together) had gone home with him it would have been a perfect ending to a perfectly ridiculous show.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

    Why didn’t army girl’s unicorn shirt provide magical assistance to their team? I thought they’d have some kind of symbiosis due to it.

  • SRQkitten

    I came in very late, right at the start of the runway show due to trying to finish up multiple work projects before vacay. Which fortunately means that I missed most of the craziness (well, actually, I didn’t miss it, lol, can completely do without it). I would have been ok with either of the top contenders winning. But am a bit shocked that they let the unicorn prince auf, perhaps his level of mental health stability was a bit much even for the drama whores, oops, I mean lifetime producers. Am just glad to see him heading out the door. A FIRST in PR history, they let go of a contestant with drama issues early.

    • RroseSelavy

      Maybe the producers were as fed up with him as we are.

    • formerlyAnon

      I haven’t seen all of the episode, but I wonder if they were afraid he really couldn’t handle it emotionally. However good the contract is, I bet they don’t want to test their limitations on liability if they had to admit someone directly to the hospital from the show.

      Which might have happened if, unlike the two (Kooan? & the woman whose name I don’t remember) who chose to leave when they were getting overwhelmed, he had a real emotional breakdown on camera.

      • SRQkitten

        I would wonder that the show’s attorneys might not have been whispering cautions in Heidi’s ear. That’s the kind of publicity for the show they’re not really looking for. Given some of the volatile characters lifetime and the producers seem to seek out, it may be only a matter of time,

    • CozyCat

      I think the contestants who are cast solely for their dramatic potential always carry an expiration date. I think the producers are trying to find the “sweet spot,” keeping them as long as the audience finds them interesting and eliminating them at the point where the viewers are starting to get bored.

      They probably felt that Timothy would dominate every episode he was in and after three episodes the audience would be getting sick of him and the drama he generated. The other contestants and the judges were obviously getting sick of him. To her credit, Kelly Osborne had had enough in about 5 minutes.

  • SugarSnap108

    I didn’t see the episode. Was the excuse for not giving it to Alexandria and Dom that the look “read too junior”?

    Anyway, I think it’s adorable, and somehow not too ‘young.’ And despite my aversion to belly shirts, I really dig Jeremy and Ken’s.

    • alyce1213

      Actually, they didn’t even breathe the word “junior.” They loved it and praised it and wanted it. It was a very close decision.

      • SugarSnap108

        Thanks. Huh…I would’ve bet Nina hated it. A/D should’ve won. The sombrero dress is kind of ordinary, which is a weird thing to say about a sombrero dress.

  • Billie_Dawn

    Let’s place bets on who actually wrote that note to Sustainicorn. Production assistant? Homeless street person? Or did the model actually do it (probably at gunpoint)?

    • OrigamiRose

      It had to be a producer.

      • otterbird

        Judging from that handwriting, how old was the producer? Twelve?

        • OrigamiRose

          Well, this is Bunim/Murray :) Could be a graduate of The Real World. Most of those kids have the maturity of 12-year-olds.

        • CozyCat

          Well, that would suggest that it actually WAS the model, since they’re put out to pasture at about 15.

    • ChrisP

      Looked like the handwriting on the Bachelor/Bachelorette date cards.

  • crash1212

    I would’ve been happy with either of the top two looks getting the win. I figure Sombrero Chic won because of how difficult working with the material was. The other was really cute, but it was fabric…not stiff, falling apart, straw. I would’ve been ecstatic if both the Wisconsin peeps had been offed. I must confess, at first, I thought they were brother and sister.

  • Jitka Pavlíková

    Oh, Timothy, if you want to play the “cute-young-gay-guy” card, go get some lessons from Christian Siriano. However, I didn’t hate Timothy’s design as much. I think that despite all the quarrel they managed to put together a decent look. I’m not sad that there will be no sustainicorn next week, he’s clearly not ready for the runway. On the other hand, I adored both TOP designs and also feel strange affection to those plastic pants.

    Anyway, what is Kelly Osbourne doing on a fashion programme?

    • Eric Stott

      the same as she does every other place – look fabulous & act slightly silly

    • Susan Bigler

      The same thing she does on her usual gig, Fashion Police.

    • CozyCat

      She’s on a fashion program (“Fashion Police”: that thing where they take pot shots at celebs and Joan Rivers makes bad jokes) every week. So she actually has more cred than the average guest judge.

      • Eric Stott

        Oh, she’s far from stupid – her reinventing and transformation is a work of genius – but she does play for silly a bit.

    • RroseSelavy

      Kelly has reinvented herself into a somewhat skilled fashion commentator, laughing uproariously at Joan Rivers’s jokes every week on Fashion Police. And actually, compared with the level or tacky and mean on that show, she comes out of it smelling like roses. It’s quite an impressive turnabout for her.

      • formerlyAnon

        I am ever more convinced that she’s shrewd like her Mama.

    • keall

      Before Fashion Police, KO was the host of Project Catwalk–the UK edition of Project Runway. She was essentially the Heidi Klum of that franchise for seasons 2 & 3, after taking over for Liz Hurley who hosted its first season.

  • otterbird

    The only good thing to come out of the past three weeks is that now I want to rewatch “The Last Unicorn” which really is a great animated movie. Well, okay, that, and I really loved Dom and Alexandria’s design. So two good things.

    What’s up with the building a story around Kate this season? Did Lifetime and B/M learn NOTHING from their attempt to make Anya happen? I thought Kate was perfectly fine and inoffensive last season and this season we’re only three weeks in and already I hate her. NO MORE MARY SUES.

    • Joe J

      Oh man, “The Last Unicorn”, that tree with the bazooms is still seared into my head from my childhood.

      “Oh God, I’m engaged to a Douglas fir!”

      • demidaemon

        It also inspires me to go out and add the “Unico” movies to my collection, since I already have the film you mentioned.

  • http://marshmallowjane.com/ marshmallowjane

    As I said last week, don’t Miranda and Timothy look like sister and brother? I thought, since they come from the same town, that sibling rivalry might explain it. Seriously. Same nose. Same dimples. Same shape face.

    I think this competition is terribly stressful. I thought both might go home as well.

    • OrigamiRose

      Someone on TWoP theorized about them being half-siblings; it does seem weird that they could so much resemble each other physically, mentally and emotionally, coming from the same town. I certainly would not put it past the producers to pull a stunt like that.

      • http://marshmallowjane.com/ marshmallowjane

        Thanks for at least seeing the similarities. I think they’re uncanny.

        • OrigamiRose

          Absolutely, you deserve kudos for picking up on that. It’s funny, I *hate* pictures of myself because all I see is my father in a wig and I hate it; and now looking at pictures of Miranda and Timothy side by side? Well, I have the same feeling about her in relation to him.

  • Melanie

    I’m pretty sure the pants were Jeremy’s contribution – remember the (literal) parachute pants he made in the first challenge? And the top was Ken’s. I really thought that one would be in top. She looked chic as hell.

    I, too, though Alexandria and Dom should have won. That was top-to-bottom the best thing on the runway.

  • gurl boy

    THE BUTTON BAG IS RIGGED! Always has been and always will be! TG …not playing fair?

  • Judy_S

    I’m feeling that reading this post was probably a LOT more fun than watching. I am planning to tune in this season, really I am–just not yet.
    But if that blue plush dress was a response to a stuffed-animal challenge, I agree it should have won all the prizes and kudos. Brilliant.

  • gurl boy

    Looking forward to when Miranda the biatch is sent into the “aufed designer dungeon” for remainder of season…. Uni_boy will drive her batshit crazy! Lets pray it’s the next episode!

    • wontons

      Thank God there isn’t a “Last Chance Kitchen” redemption webseries for this thing.

      (Is there?)

  • SewingSiren

    1. Helen and Kate. I was pretty much in agreement with the win. It’s a cool dress one the better “unconventional” challenge dresses in a while. I think it’s Kate’s baby though. She probably should have won .
    2. Unicorn and USArmy were dumb together. But I have to disagree . They both have the perfect maturity level for reality tv. That is to say a very low level. Their dress is dumb.
    3. Loved the Pokemon dress. I think the sombrero dress won because it was more of a Zac Posen kind of dress.
    4. Alexander and Justin’s was horrid. Very lucky boys those two are.
    5. The plastic pants remind me of those weight loss clothes that used to be in the back of womens magazines in the 1970′s . Not a fan.

    6.Sandro and Sue should have been in the bottom. I think the judges were afraid of him.
    7. Brandon and Karen. Looks like a cheap vinyl chair owned by trailer dwellers with many cats and children.

  • Eric Stott

    LOVED when Heidi touched part of that dress & it came off!

  • http://twitter.com/MandySCG MandyJane

    For once the judges picked two in the top that I was happy with. I thought Alexandria and Dom’s outfit was the best, but I’m not mad about Kate and Helen winning.

    I hope that Sandro’s meltdown next week means he’s kicked off the show. He is disgusting.

  • NOLA_gal

    To continue my complete mis-reading of what other people write, I read Locutus (go Captain Picard!) as Leucrota, and was imagining some feral half-hyena-half-lion designer with blood dripping from his fangs. What a let-down.

    • piperkitty

      I too read Locutus. Confused myself for a minute.

  • Lauren Lynch Fox

    I made the “Domo” dress for my daughter in 5th grade for Halloween….5 years ago (in brown, “Domo’s” true color). I could not believe the praise it got last night. My daughter said….”they don’t know who Domo is? The Judges are acting like the designers just created this”

    • SewingSiren

      I don’t think Dom and Alexandria were implying that they invented the cartoon character. They mentioned Japanese street culture and I think specifically mentioned Domo. I’m pretty sure the judges were at least vaguely aware of it also. That was my impression.

      • http://www.GiftedCollector.com/ The Gifted Collector

        I think it didn’t win because it was so blatantly referential. At least the sombrero dress was an original design.

    • deitybox

      And it gets ten times more psychotic when you picture the full scene with the cameraman and boom guy hovering over him!

    • formerlyAnon

      Who? Someone the producers decide to auf lest they have to test some of their contractual clauses limiting liability for contestants’ well being.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      Or the tag line for the movie poster!

  • tb

    Are Meanandra and Timothy brother and sister and we just don’t know it yet?

  • Bwin51

    Timothy and Miranda look like they could be siblings or at the very least cousins. And they’re from the same state. The rest of it was just horrid.

  • Paula Pertile

    Didn’t anyone else notice that Miranda and Tim LOOK LIKE TWINS? I would never have picked up on that unless they were paired together. That little velvet bag of names is totally rigged – someone had fun figuring out these pairings.

    And yeah, who wins that much stuff at a carnival, ever? Can you imagine if some of them came out of there with just one little snake or something?

    Now that you guys have been behind the curtain and now how this Oz really works, maybe you can … oh, no, what am I saying, of course you can’t share any secrets.
    Can you?

    • SewingSiren

      Maybe for once the carnival games WEREN’T rigged.

  • flamingoNW

    I LOVED Jeremy and Ken’s look and would have given it the win. It’s fashionable and very well made and perfectly styled.

    • StellaZafella

      What? You think this show is still about art? Silly you…:>)

      Next year they should just cut the crap and hire the contestants straight from the nearest drama school…who cares if anybody can actually make Fashion?!?

  • Stubenville

    Sweet Baby Jeebus – the Wallmart Belk accessory wall needs to be set on fire to destroy all of those heinous nude pumps!

      I know, right? If that’s the epitome of Southern Style, then give me New Yawk style any day of the week.

      • Sarah

        It isn’t. I haven’t seen a nude pump in the environs of Richmond, Virginia, at all this year.

        • Eric Stott

          I’ve got to wash my glasses- I read that as “I haven’t seen a nude PIMP in the environs of Richmond, Virginia, at all this year.”

    Agreed, TLO – Alexandria and Dom’s should have won since it was by far the cutest and most modern. Really, who wants to wear a wicker dress? O_o

  • d4divine

    I am SO glad DesignerTim is gone. His happy/psychotic shtick was working my nerves…that whole a unicorn is more like a hippo thing made me want to jump through the tv and smack him. LOL

    • Tracy_Flick

      I only wish someone would have asked his opinion about aliens, GMOs and flouridated water. We could have laughed and laughed and laughed. What a fucking idiot.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    I only disagree with one thing, TLo – I think the win last night was well-deserved. That sombrero dress was awesome. Domo dress was too, but I liked H&K’s better. Oh, and I was horrified, fucking HORRIFIED, that Heidi immediately said, “I would wear that!” about the Domo dress! Oh, bitch, NO! Not unless you stepped into a time machine and went back 20 years – then NO. Maybe for Halloween if you decided to go as a “Walking, Post-Divorce Midlife Crisis” – aside from that, just no. I could feel the “OMG, HEIDI STOP TALKING!” vibes coming off of Zac Posen in waves.

  • Stubenville

    Sustaiacorn (Timothy) had such odd behavior last night that several people in the lounge debated if he was a plant. It was just too over the top; the card from the model, read weeping in the dark, the comments about what kind of hooves unicorns really have, the strange interactions with Miranda, etc.

    • Eric Stott

      How much do you think that model was paid to write the card?

      • formerlyAnon

        Please. This show is SO CHEAP. And the models are, like, 17. Prone to emotional excess. Thrilled to have a little more potential on air exposure. All they’d have to do is “encourage.” (What I could read of it, the card sounded like a long yearbook signature.)

    “They honestly should never have been allowed on the show, so crazy and off-base were their actions last night.” I mean, we all know that any psychiatric screening before reality TV is a joke (my brother is a psychiatrist and met someone who had done it, and the screener-psychiatrist ended up quitting because the producers didn’t want his advice on who NOT to put on TV, they just wanted to know who was an inch from a breakdown; it’s pretty morally bankrupt).
    I kind of liked Jeremy/Ken’s outfit – the pants made me think of the 90s in a not-irritating way, and the top half seemed to bring it into a globalized perspective – to me, it looks like what Scary Spice would wear on a comeback tour (and it helps that their model was basically styled to look sort of like Melanie Brown), which is pretty fabulous (Scary and Posh were always my favorite Spice Girls).
    Glad they sent Sustainicorn home – but I was watching the episode from 1-2:30 last night (long drive back from visiting family friends in Sarasota on the way back from the bar exam) and I had no idea what the hell was going on and I initially just thought it was from being tired – that was such a surreal episode.
    Also, I love TLo for being nerds who of COURSE know who/what Domo-kun is. So much love. I liked that look too, and especially dug the Bjork-esque styling.
    The hat dress was good – the best part was the use of the weave on the bodice to create patterns – the skirt seemed more obvious.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      You know what? I totally love this post! The fact that you chalked up the weirdness of last night’s episode to sleep deprivation and the stress of taking the bar exam (by the way, kudos!) says a ton about bizarre this show has gotten.

      • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

        Thanks. I remember hearing sustainicorn’s speech and just thinking “What? Is there a conversation thread I missed? Does he think life-vests are a good/fashionable thing? What? What? Is my brain leaking?”

    • Qitkat

      I appreciate the ‘insider’ information you have shared here about the psychiatric screening process. That’s probably pretty close to what we have all suspected, all along. Morally bankrupt indeed.

    • formerlyAnon

      Congrats, again, on being done with the bar exam! You’d have drunk free in TLounge if you’d been there last night!

      Enjoy the odd feeling of being able to have free time.

      • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

        Thanks again! It’s a strange strange feeling.
        Also, I wish there was a real version of the TLounge. I imagine it’d be a classier type of sports bar where its patrons watch reality TV competition shows instead of games, shout at contestants for being dumb, and cheer for their favorites. A magical place. #post-bar-fantasy-world

        • EveEve

          Congrats on getting through the exam. Now, get it all out of your brain! Project Runway is probably a good way to forget about the multi-state, no?

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Thanks for the inside info — stuff that we suspect, of course, but it’s… well, it’s not good to be right about that. A lot of these people need actual help.

    • Shawn EH

      The Jeremy/Ken look was completely my favorite … and c’mon, give it up Ken, she totally had Diana Ross hair. That was a disco fabulous outfit all the way!

  • BrooklynBomber

    T&Lo – What great news–congratulations and best wishes!!! ♡♡♡

    I missed episodes 1 and 2, and saw only the runway and judging last night, so I have no idea about anybody. All I can say is the losing team looked like brother and sister.

    Oh, and Kate — wasn’t she on last season? What’s she doing there again?

    • otterbird

      Apparently you could vote on which contestant from a recent season you’d like to see brought back. So viewers voted online, and then the producers picked Kate.

      • BrooklynBomber

        Oh. Interesting. Thank you!

        • otterbird

          Personally, I think the producers expected her to go farther last season than she did. But Michelle was so clearly head and shoulders above everyone else that season, talent-wise, that they were stuck.
          Dear Lifetime: LICENSE THE DAMN BLEEDING HEART SWEATER. STILL WANT ONE.

      • Joe J

        I love the way you phrased that (says one who voted for Valerie).

      • Meredith_P

        Yes, talk about something being rigged! No way Kate won the viewers vote!

  • Goldie

    I think there’s some history between Timothy (thank God he went home!) and Miranda (who reminds me of Sean Young circa Bladerunner). They’ve both mentioned being from the same town and rivals a couple of times. That might explain their drama.

    Maybe it’s always this bad and I just haven’t noticed, but…the product placement last night was WAY out of hand. All the Yoplait BS, lingering shots of the HP logo and strategic placement of those water bottles.

    Sandro’s an asshole, I hope he’s gone next week.

  • Glenn Johnson

    I believe that the button bag was rigged. Tim didn’t even bother pulling Timothy and Miranda’s buttons out because they were well, last – so it was obvious, right? Not to me. I don’t think their buttons were even in the bag. It seemed that Tim was hoping no-one would want to see the proof that random events paired up the vinegar and baking soda team of deluded unicorn boy and manic depressive Diana Prince. If they had been pulled up in the middle of selection I would have thought it was bad luck. As it was he simply gestured to the “last-remaining” unlucky team and off they went. Seems suspicious to me.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Sandro is played by Sacha Baron Cohen, right? Or has that already been established? (I’m new to this season’s party.)

    • formerlyAnon

          • BrooklynBomber

            Thank you!

  • GorgeousThings

    I’m betting the producers will keep Sandro to the bitter end, just for the drama. I would have guessed Miranda, but she’s too abrasive, even for them. Not to mention cray-cray.

    • wontons

      I want Miranda gone because of all the contestants this season she’s the only one who, to my mind, seems genuinely in need of medical intervention. This show isn’t healthy for her. Plus, she’s not entertaining, and her clothes haven’t done a damn thing for me. Why is she here?

      • BeccaGo

        Perfectly expressed.

  • newsieneighbor

    Dear Yoplait,
    You should have asked for final edit. I thought there was no topping the creepiness, of “I wanna meet the cow that made this..” Wrong! Congratulations — this is what we will be associating you with!

    • BeccaGo

      I had that “I want to meet the cow that made this” line stuck in my head ALL DAY today. I even just caught myself humming it right now. Curse you, Yoplait!

  • Qitkat

    Let’s play the Project Runway Producer Word Game. Describe the Ideal Contestant:

    Delusional; borderline psychotic; misogynistic; passive-aggressive; ability to bullshit; mean; inability to edit oneself; emotionally unstable; ability to sob while running with scissors; unfamiliar with commercial sewing machines; frequent personal over-sharing; ability to induce cringe in the viewer.

    Oh, this is depressing. Three weeks in, and five four designers on the carnival ride of unstable emotional doom.

    The domo-kun outfit was fun (though I had no clue of the reference); the sombrero dress was well-made from difficult to sew materials; the pants, bolero and shortie top were eye-catching and very stylish. I don’t get the love for the tumors dress here, though. In a challenge like this, all the outfits deserved critique and examination by the judges. Actually I would like to see that every time, but understand that is unrealistic.

    Every time we think we’ve seen the oddest, most drama-filled, most unrealistic episode yet, they manage to top themselves.

    • Sarah

      I’m with you on “tumors.” I did not care for it. Even without the execrable addition of stuffing and fun fur, I think it would’ve been a fairly standard Ven Budhu origami rose number.

      • Margaret Nikoleit

        It brought to mind the Envious Tumor dress from Season 1 (I believe the designer’s name was Starr) which was indeed auf’ed.

  • Joyce VG

    I had to go on the internet to find out who got auffed because I couldn’t take it anymore. These people make clothes. Unless there is some waterboarding we are not seeing all the crazy was ridiculous.

  • Sarah

    I liked Dom and Alexandria’s look, too, but Upon My Honor, I’m so sick to death of the moustache as a motif that I immediately liked it a little less. Not really their fault, I guess, but there it is.

  • Liz Reed

    Good heavens let’s not forget my favorite part. Who else died when Timothy blurted out on the runway, “The Titanic was a beautiful ship, and it NEEDED LIFE JACKETS!!!” or something similarly WTFucky? I fell off my couch. Next time I’m in a tight spot I’ll be sure to try that defense.

    • janierainie

      I started wondering if someone had written it for him! That was far and away the most obnoxious runway moment. I am so glad he is gone. It wasn’t a bright and shining moment for his partner, but who knows what other stuff went on to send her over the edge? (or maybe I should say overboard)

  • M. H. Leader

    I also really liked the Anime dress best, but I did like the winner too. I just would have reversed order. No real problem with the win.

    But seriously, Unicorn guy needs some serious therapy. And Sandro needs more than a few swift kicks in his privates by a horde of enraged Amazons. His dresses are aimed at hos. His aesthetic is ho. He treats all women like hos.

    The man is a turd on a pimple on the butt of the bottom end of the world. Can’t wait for him to go.

    Except, of course, that Heidi really likes ho-clothes.

  • marlie

    “A Unicornucopia of Crazy”… HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Sandro is a lunatic and needs to be sent packing.

  • Heather W

    I was really surprised that NO ONE last night even nodded toward the fact that the winning dress looks a lot like the line of children’s clothes Heidi made. Anyone know how taping for this season lined up with the release of that line? I don’t see how Heidi missed a chance to plug her products.

  • mmebam

    “A Unicornucopia of Crazy, if you will.”

    I will.

    Also, that Domo-kun dress is everything.

  • appliquer

    Project Runway is pretty much a joke this year. Why all these wacko challenges with weird elements. Next week doesn’t look to be anything different. This may be my last year to watch this show as it has really devolved into trash.

  • JLH

    I agree that Domo-dress should have won.

    Right now, I’m most interested in seeing designs from Jeremy, Dom, Bradon, Ken, and Justin. I don’t particularly have a favorite yet but I’ve noticed that I enjoy Jeremy on my screen so hopefully he sticks around for awhile and doesn’t turn into some sort of Daniel crazy where I feel like defending him even though he’s absolutely nuts.

  • Inspector_Gidget

    They may as well just get it over with and rename the show Product Runway. God, could it get more blatant? It used to be a little amusing how Tim shilled for sponsors with an utter lack of guile, but now it’s obnoxious.

    But you’re right about it being the worst commercial ever. Now whenever I see Yoplait in the store I will think of psychotic unicorn meltdowns.

    • wontons

      Too bad Yoplait wasn’t Ben & Jerry’s; “Psychotic Unicorn Meltdown” is a great flavor name.

      • Domo_Konnichiwa

        Will the ice cream be gray to represent a Unicorn’s historical heritage?

      • BeccaGo

        Would make a great band name, too.

  • formerlyAnon

    I’ve skipped watching the drama in interests of time (but I WILL go back to watch) and got to the runway. I’m in the unusual position of agreeing completely with y’alls takes on the good & bad. (Odd because you often see things I haven’t or arrive at the same place by different reasoning.)

    I felt like the whole amusement park/yogurt thing had to have totally bitch slapped the mental orientation of the contestants. Instead of the slow process of realizing over 5 or 6 challenges, as they experience weird product placement constraints, cracked out judging and shifting, conveniently ignored “requirements,” that it’s not possible to outthink this game, it’s more a ‘do your best, surf the waves and pray for luck’ thing, the contestants got landed deep in bizarro world all at once.

    Might be a good thing, for some of ‘em.

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

    Alexandria & Dom clearly should have won. I don’t remember the last time I could have called anything from Runway adorable.

  • NoveltyRocker

    These recaps provide the fun ridiculousness that the best seasons of Project Runway and America’s Next Top Model used to give me. After 3 or 4 seasons of these things, they always manage to try for ridiculous and it just isn’t the same kind of fun.

  • Bethany Roullett

    My friend realized something about Sandro- He’s way more fun if you step back and think of him as a character being played by Sam Rockwell. Then he becomes awesome!

    • OrigamiRose

      Noooooooo, I just fell in love with Sam in The Way, Way Back yesterday, you can’t taint him with Sandro to me now!

    • putacorkinit

      But Rockwell can dance Sandro can only fume, twirl his moustache and stamp about.

  • guest2visits

    The posted comments last night & today are are better than a sky full of shiny gold unicorns with rainbow wings and ruby tiaras. Really. I think this episode was amazingly insane to watch, but hilariously fun to read about.

    And there was so much outlandish crapola going on ( words I’ve lived by) that I forgot about the bogus midway games and prizes. Or the Button Bag selection. Or the yogurt-words that no one was tested on.

  • FashionFollower.com

    A walked out on the show about twenty minutes in because my friend (who I watch it with, who still loves the show) was getting really pissed off with my groaning and shouting at the TV. So I’m done with actually watching it, but I’m still coming here.

    What I want to know is, did the money for the carnival games come out of their budget? (I kid, but it should have.) And did they have to hire that ‘crowd’ of people on the boardwalk? Because Coney Island looked kind of dead.

    • Tracy_Flick

      They said that the $100 for carnival games did come off of their debit cards. But I’m sure the debit cards are just another silly fiction, like the “random” drawings that create maximum drama.

      • adnama79

        When Tim Gunn or Heidi draws the buttons, you know it’s not random.

        • Tracy_Flick

          No kidding. They don’t even TRY to make it look random. Confessional by Y: “I don’t want to work with X” followed immediately by a drawing putting X and Y together. Why bother with the facade of randomness? My 3-year-old wouldn’t be fooled, what’s the point?

  • shanna bowie

    I’m sorry but Jeremy and ken should have won. They made an outfit that looked really interesting and like something someone would actually wear. And it was 3 pieces! I felt like they were robbed. The sombero dress was also beautiful and the harajuku dress as well.

  • Tracy_Flick

    I want Alexandra and Dom’s dress as a hoodie.

  • http://marshmallowjane.com/ marshmallowjane

    This show was a disappointment to me. I’d wanted Timothy off the show since his fifth time of uttering the word “unicorn.” I thought he was obnoxious, but I found myself rooting for him after the way Miranda treated him. And Sandro was terrible, the way he laughed loudly to poke more fun. I’ve tried to like Sandro. For awhile I saw his communication difficulties but now I’d hate to be near him while he’s holding a pair of scissors. He’s in dire need of anger management. Everybody is under the same pressure. Everybody has valid reasons for wanting to win. I thought that using the sombreros was brilliant but Kate has gone from biotch to Miss Congeniality. I wish she’d just settle down and keep to herself. Alexandria teaches kids how to sew; her influence was all over her design with Dom. That design was refreshing, a total original.

  • momjamin

    I do have to say that these people make Heidi Antoinette and the naked models from the promo poster seem downright sane.

  • River

    I love you TLo. I never have to watch this show again because I can come here and get the breakdown. xoxo

  • http://www.fatladysings.us/ TFLS

    Frankly, we thought up until the last second they were both going to be sent home.

    YES!!! I wanted both on the unicorn express right out of town. And if you’d thrown Sandro the asshat with – I’d have been even happier.

    • momjamin

      The lawyers intervened and said they couldn’t put that combo in the sequester house together until there were a few more bodies to dilute the crazy.

      • DuBey2

        Hah!

      • formerlyAnon

        Sounds like nothing more than plain truth to me.

  • lilyvonschtupp

    Were they serious with that winner? All the crooked undone stitching and stretching against one side?

    I thought they got up and looked closely at the designs first hand. Who was guiding them, Stevie Wonder?

    • Indigo54

      No, you can’t blame that one on Stevie. Remember the judges didn’t only look at the garments. They actually touched them as well. Stevie Wonder woulda FELT every single one of those flaws.

  • Indigo54

    Wow! What a ridiculous episode. As I watched I thought, well, it couldn’t get any worse. Then came the trailer at the end with Sandro going off like a lunatic. Is all this lunacy really necessary? Maybe so. Frankly most of the fashion hasn’t been anything to write home about so far.

    • haightcolevalley

      That’s where PR has sunk to now…

    • putacorkinit

      2 x Craft Shows in a row haven’t helped. Perhaps they might actually be allowed some fabric next time round.

  • JaCory Deon

    Wow, that episode was batshit nuts! All this drama and it’s only episode 3! That said, when the “gentle one” took his unicorn and letter to the dark hallway, that was some kitch level-10 bathos there (thanks for the laughs PR!). Even though they made a very boring look, no way was it worse than Sandro & Fanta’s garbage dress. It really seems like he (Sandro) is playing Josh M 2.0 to the hilt, minus the queeny humor…I don’t know if it’s working though (and really if I were working with him, we would have had IT, so kudos to Fanta for keeping cool).

    That cookie monster dress was great and you can go to Tokyo and see that now. Kate & Helen’s dress was also good, but didn’t look finished to my eyes….good thing Helen got someone who can sew though she’s not long for this world I think. Overall, there is way too much drama on this show and not enough focus on the creative process.

  • stayl

    Miranda and Timothy look like brother and sister.

    • putacorkinit

      If God had a sense of humour, he’d make them lo vers.

      • Shawn EH

        Maybe not “God” so much …

  • pottymouth_princess

    I was waiting with bated breath to read TLo’s take on the crazed Unicorn Boy. I was not disappointed. The dress was bad enough to justify the auf, but I agree: I would have sent both of their crazy asses back to Laverne and Shirley land.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      timothy seems very special in a special ed kind of way. i bet he has a long history of problems relating to others and groups and has seen doctors and therapists up the wazoo. he just has that kind of feeling of a person who was just never quite right. as in”the kid ain’t right.” i am not saying this this because i am on team sustainacorn.
      it just seems almost inappropriate to cast him.

  • pylgrym

    What happened to the words? Talk about lost in translation! I thought perhaps Braden etc was the one with”fluffy” which would account for the awful cloud. Otherwise, super cool.

  • librarygrrl64

    That Alexandria and Dom piece is ADORABLE! I agree with your assessment.

  • Amy Hughes

    I just have to say, Freddy Mecuryovich is my favorite nickname you guys have come up with in a very long time!

  • Jane Morris

    Way down here in the bottom of comments I know no one will pay any heed, least of all the wonderfully funny authors of this delightful blog.
    But “Locutus” is beneath you. A deaf man with an implant. Pick on him if you like, but find another reason and don’t demean the disability.

    • putacorkinit

      ‘Boo Radley’ better?

    • Zorkness

      I actually thought that T&L were referring to Justin as bushy brow and Alexander as Locutus… Guess I will file my observations under in “no clue” file. Personally I look at Alexander’s hair cut and think “Big Boy” as in “Big Boy Burgers”.

    • Shawn EH

      I thought they were just talking about the bald head.

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        The bald head and the big black implant on the side of it that he keeps talking about. There’s nothing about “demean[ing] his disability.” There’s nothing in there about hsi disability AT ALL. Like virtually all the nicknames we hand out, it has to do with a physical resemblance to someone more famous or a feature of themselves they always like to talk about; hence: “Diana Prince,” “Sustainicorn,” “Freddie Mercuryovich,” “Drag Brows.”

        • lilyvonschtupp

          Heh heh heh heh heh…drag brows

        • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

          And we can’t help noting that Justin called himself “The Bionic Man” in the finale. Was that “beneath” him, I wonder?

  • Jasmaree

    I was fine with Dom & Alexandria not winning. It’s cute, but it’s really not original at all. You can probably buy the exact same thing on etsy and you do a quick google search and get a dress just like it (I know it’s ‘shopped, but frankly that doesn’t matter. What does is that it’s a very popular, widely circulated image that happens to look almost exactly like this design.). All they really added to it was the mustache and people are adding mustaches to EVERYTHING nowadays. Like I said: cute, but completely unoriginal. Sealed the win for the other team, IMO.

    • SewingSiren

      I should think that it matters a great deal that the so called dress ,that looks “almost exactly” like the dress that Dom and Alexandria presented, was photo shopped. It means that that garment does not exist. I seriously doubt that either designer or any of the judges have ever seen that photoshopped image. Alexandria and Dom most certainly did base their design on the existing cartoon character of “Domo” and if you look at Alexandria’s portfolio you will see that she has worked in that vein before . I don’t think they were claiming that (Domo face) to be an original idea.
      Furthermore originality has never been held in high regard on Project Runway nor in the American fashion industry in general.

  • Karen Clark

    You had me CRYING over Princess Snowflake Sustainicorn. If he had not been kicked off, I would invent a time machine and travel back in time to NYC and kick his ass off.

  • jillwrites

    My favorite part was when Little Timmy took his unicorn to go home and play.

    Miranda was a right brat, and even Sustainicorn deserved to be treated better than that.

    Sue still cannot figure out how to thread a bobbin – or even what to call a bobbin. Sigh.

    Also, a half million dollars in prizes but there aren’t enough sewing machines for every designer to have one? C’mon, secretly the producers have been hoping for a stabbing with THAT unfortunate circumstance.

  • DuBey2

    Would have loved to see Jeremy/Ken’s pants with vest jacket in the top. Especially because those blue skinnies were the ONLY thing anyone made from the blue plastic (?aliens?) that wasn’t horrid. And their bustier? was as interesting as the bolero dress, but on smaller scale.
    Also would’ve sent home Sandro/Sue’s mess of a skirt — or at least added them to the bottom.
    Often I want to see more of an actual look (I’m strange that way) than the 2 second runway – but it goes straight to “safe-T-town” and I never get that or to hear the judges’ opinions.
    Of course, that idea (More looks on top and bottom each wk) would cut way way into the vital DRAMA of the show.

  • DuBey2

    Also, Jeremy and Ken have an AWESOME model. But even she suffered, due to the nude pumps. sigh….

  • Rebecca Welch

    Love, Love, LOVE you guys. Totally agree with everything you say. Not loving the “Locutus” name. Seems kind of mean and a little too far.

    • Zorkness

      Well if the assimilation doesn’t involve unicorns, I wouldn’t complain.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      so who or what is this locutus that everyone’s getting so uppity about?

  • putacorkinit

    Little Timmy would be described in my neck of the woods as having a ‘punchable face’.

    And yet, I think the true villain of the show has not revealed themselves. Sandro is a windy bully and I don’t care whether he stays or goes. But Alexandria’s nasty little smirk when her team-mate nominated her for the win and then immediately nominated herself in agreement without a word for her friend bodes well for the late season emergence of a great Project Runway Villain with the Vanity of an Irina, the Smugness of an Ivy and the Maniacal Self Belief in Her Primal Genius of a Kenley, If events transpire as I have foreseen, it’s going to be a bumpy ride indeed.

  • JaCory Deon

    I too noticed Alexandria’s smugness…she just might be the real villainess of this season because I have a hard time seeing them keep Sandro around for a long while after being so vocally misogynistic and toxic. Then again, it is PR on Lifetime.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Yeah, but it’s the wrong part of Lifetime. This is supposed to be the “Yay, women,” part. He seems to think he’s in a Lifetime movie of the week, playing the abusive guy that she has to find the courage to leave. Since they’re supposedly in a reality show, I doubt they’ll play it to the end, where Sue (and probably ingenue Helen) have to defend the other ladies by creeping around Parsons with baseball bats until they well and truly defeat him.

    • Suzanne S

      I have interacted with her a few times at my place of business and she was not a nice person during those encounters. When I saw the designers on Ep 1, (I hadn’t yet read “Meet the designers” or watched the pre-show), I had the “How do I know her, is she another one who is making a career out of reality shows?”-then her home town (guess I should say “where she currently lives”) popped up on screen, and I was like “Ohhhh, I remember her”. Even taking my bias from dealing with her in person out of the equation, she comes off as very “above it all” and I’m not sure I’ve heard her say anything neutral (let alone positive) about her competitors.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    I was robbed!!!!!!! (Sorry, had to do it.)

  • Annie Lure

    Non-sustainable Heels is limitless, isn’t he? Or so the producers want us to think. His sustainable/non-sustainable/reducible/irreducible diatribes weren’t sufficient. They had to reveal another facet of him: a fascination with extreme isolation, with freaks and outcasts. They plant a unicorn so as to underscore the solitary nature of his journey: society has no place for him, no means of accommodating such a creature. OF COURSE he curls up with stuffed animals, preferably unicorns, in bed at the age of 24. They pair him with someone who vehemently dislikes him (side note: Who don’t you want to work with? If she knew better, she wouldn’t say that out loud to the producers) so that his untainted-as-a-unicorn self runs the risk of annihilation. That’s his narrative. PHEW!

    Timothy/Miranda: The vest is too arts & crafts, IMO. The dress is limp. I would have sent Miranda home. Her range of technical skills is very narrow. What can she do apart from a pencil skirt? Not much, it turns out. Her sparse portfolio consists of embarrassingly simple articles of clothing. Timothy’s, on the other hand, is quite interesting. Check it out.

    Kate/Helen: You may not like Kate– I sure don’t– but you can’t deny that her technical skills are solid. She’s quite capable of accomplishing a lot in a very finite amount of time. I appreciate the material they selected. The sombrero’s texture and curvature lends itself to a sculptural garment. That said, I don’t think this piece merits the win (The win is obviously scripted: Helen’s redemption in more ways than one). The judges praised the stitching, but if you look closely, you’ll see that the conjoining of some of the pieces is crudely done. I do appreciate the brim-as-trim for the ruffles, tho.

    Jeremy/Ken: Jeremy’s VERY handsome. Ken’s ostentatious. They worked well together. It was nice to see well made separates. The pants are certainly Jeremy’s (if you look at his portfolio, pretty much all of it is menswear). Ken’s got this structured, sculptured sensibility; thus, the top portion is likely his. I responded well to this look, but I can’t syncretize plastic, electric blue pants with artisan-like top.

    Sue/Sandro: Plastic, cheap, poorly rendered, and unresolved. I’ve got nothing to say about him. He’s disgusting. The producers labor under delusion that the audience finds him entertaining; thus, they’ll keep him till the end. Well, I don’t. When I meet somebody like that, I run away as fast as I can.

    Alex/Dom: Very charming and well rendered, but I must note that this EXACT design opens Alex’s portfolio. Well, better do things you know you can do– i.e. have done before, have the patterns for– than attempt something you’re not sure you can accomplish. She deemed her preexisting design suitable for nature of this challenge. Good for her. The print peeking out of the hem is Dom’s, I think, as she tends to gravitate towards prints.

    Alexander/Justin: They may have worked well together, but this was a bad pairing as Alexander’s a costume designer. He’d be better off teamed with someone who can balance his more over-the-top impulses, and Justin’s not the one to do so because his work, too, is very costume-y. If you look at Justin portfolio, nearly everything is made out of unconventional materials and nearly everything is crafts-y. He’s almost certainly responsible for the not-so-aptly applied triangular embellishments as they closely resemble design details found in his pre-show pieces.

    Bradon/Karen: Surprised this tumorous creation didn’t end up in the bottom. This is exclusively Bradon’s work. He does a lot of this ruffling and gathering as his portfolio evinces. I like him as a contestant, but I question his taste. I’m shocked Karen makes it through yet another round unscathed.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Well, better do things you know you can do– i.e. have done before, have

      accomplish

      A message that should be tattooed on some of the contestants’ cutting hands before they start. If you have 24 hours or less to make something, be solid.

      I’m pretty sure the print shorts (?) under it were Dom’s. Maybe the stuffed frog print.

      • MoHub

        Exactly. The shorts were made from frogs.

    • mhleta

      I disagree about Timothy’s portfolio, and I went to look at as many as I could stomach because of your interesting and well-thought out commentary. I found his portfolio to be consistent with my impression of him as one who has somehow deluded himself into believing he’s Special and Gifted and blessed by unicorns. In fact, I was underwhelmed with almost all the portfolios. Boring, referential, ill fitting, style-over-substance photos for almost all of them. I haven’t gone through all of them but of the one’s I’ve seen (Kate’s included) only Bradon and Alexander Pope have impressed me.

  • Call me Bee

    Wow–what a mess. I agree with most of TLo’s and The Commetariat’s assessments. Just want to add:
    You just know that, when UnicornBoy stormed out of the workroom, some producer demanded that a PA get a greeting card and run to Sophie the Model and ordered her to write nice things about UnicornBoy, then dutifully trotted it over to him while he was sitting in the stairwell, or closet or wherever he was pouting with his stuffed toy.
    You just know that’s what happened.

    • mhleta

      She gave him the card before the meltdown, but it did all feel VERY staged. Very.

      • Suzanne S

        I was saying “FAKE AS HELL” (watching alone) when I saw that. It seemed even more fake when, during Timothy’s voice over of ‘how much he luuuves his model’, they showed he and his model hugging when she entered the work room (well on his end, it was more of the grasp of a drowning man-child)-the model gave a cursory hug and the expression on her face had a “bitch, please” element to it (at least from my point of view). Then we are ‘treated’ to the greeting card (TLo’s description of that scene was so hilarious and accurate) which has more written in it than I write to best friends or boyfriends. No way that was real at all. My only question is, did Timothy know that it was really written by one of the producers?

  • Louise Bryan

    My word: shark bait (oo wah wah!)

  • Shawn EH

    Interesting to watch Sandro and Timothy both have different kinds of meltdowns in order to get their female partners to do what they wanted all along. Sandro’s casual talking head misogyny was almost redundant at that point.

  • Ramon Figueroa

    I thought Sandro was sexy in a smarmy way (I felt if I put a finger on him, I would have to have a couple of Karen Silkwood showers), but he seems so out of control, it’s hard to believe he doesn’t realize how he’s coming across. Until now, I had never seen somebody whose only contribution to the show was to create so much tension. And this is only the third episode.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      he is really nothing but unpleasant. hope he goes next. he and miranda, then maybe we’ll have a sane group. wait, what about helen? miranda kind of reminds me of the girl on work of art who only made art about bloody torn up guts. lovely. they practically had to throw a net on her when she was eliminated.

  • Chartreusite

    Agreed on Dom and Alexandria’s outfit. Absolutely adorable and for a double sucker punch it reminds me of an artist friend of mine who was always really fond of that ugly-cute (not a ding at all; I’m referring to a more quirky or unusual sort of cute) aesthetic. Definitely not something that you usually see on the PR stage and it’s good that it caught the judges eye. I thought it should’ve won, but those judges have never been known to reward that sort of thing completely. I’m hoping both Dom and Alexandria continue to deliver in future challenges; they appear really promising.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      i’d love to see it on kelly osborne. i thought she was a great judge. she’s very up on fashion and enjoys the quirky-chic aadventurous. style. hope they have her on again soon. she could replace zac posen for all i care.

      • Chartreusite

        Absolutely. She’s definitely got a more fun approach to things and she’d wear the shit out of that domo dress. Did you see the seasons she hosted on Project Catwalk? She had a really strong rapport with the designers and genuinely seemed to enjoy being involved in the process. I’d love to see her on again soon.

        • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

          how did i miss that?? what channel was it on?

          • Chartreusite

            I’m not sure. I watched all the episodes they had on youtube (which was like all of s1 and s2 and most of s3) after I had finished watching Project Runway Canada. Elizabeth Hurley, the host during s1, was alright but a little too stiff in her role, but Kelly definitely was a sweetie pie and really enjoyed getting to know all the contestants. That being said, s3 was a MESS on an entertainment level and I wouldn’t recommend watching it.

            P.S. Apparently it was on the UK channel sky one. Not sure if they air reruns or not.

  • Edward Thomas-Herrera

    The word aspect drove me nuts. TEMPTUOUS is not a word. There’s CONTEMPTUOUS and TEMPESTUOUS, both of which would be odd words to describe frozen yogurt. Perhaps that person meant to say TEMPTING… but we’ll never know.

    • mhleta

      Yeah, that one goes in the Palin Hall of Fame.

    • DuBey2

      This. Drove me crazy also.

      • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

        i think it’s a combination of tempting and sensuous. but your words describe the proceedings exactly. also, did they even ask them about the words during the runway portion? seems like they just sort of blew that part off. it was a way to make the designers (?) look foolish, though.

  • mhleta

    I have one word to describe this episode. TOXIC. Toxic material, toxic stuffing, toxic personalities, toxic-passive-aggressive behavior, toxic unicorns, toxic, toxic, toxic. Someone at Yoplait is getting fired for dreaming up this hazardous spill. Also, this show has become more about mental instability than fashion. Is it going to take someone getting a pair of scissors to the eyeball for Lifetime to realize they’re toying with people who could easily snap and hurt themselves or someone else?

  • DCSheehan

    Biggest props of the night for Edwina Scissorneck telling off Miranda for her cruelness. I was shouting for someone to call her on that wretched behaviour.

    Also, suddenly want plastic blue pants.

  • Roberta Lipp

    I have to say this. McTimothy’s “I made sure you could trust me” was more than a little craptastical in light of the fact that she walked in to him having COMPLETELY REDESIGNED THE DRESS.

    Her inability to have THAT conversation tells me she has about the same level of emotional immaturity as he does. They can both go hug a unicorn.

    • Ramon Figueroa

      That’s my new dismissal phrase: “Oh, go hug a unicorn.”

    • CozyCat

      I got the feeling that there was some sort of history before the show between the two of them. She had an immediate negative reaction when she saw him; didn’t she even say something like “why does HE have to be here?” So she had already built up a reserve of irritation before the first challenge.

      I think that’s why she dealt with him so badly and when she exploded it was with all the negative things she had been thinking for a long time. I’m not trying to excuse her behavior (even SHE didn’t try to excuse her behavior), but when I think about people who have been bothering me for a long time, the type of things that go on in my head sort of resemble the type of things that came out of her mouth.

    I agree on the first photo — it reminds me strangely of a film I saw last week – “Computer Chess”…I knew it was a pseudo-cumentary….but it is also a genre called “Mumblecore” – a genre characterized in part by low budgets and poor acting — which was not something I was familiar with….anyway….that first photo….and most of this episode was mumblecore as evidenced by the low-budget (or I am sensing no budget as Yoplait and Luna Park and some weird water brand paid for it) and poor acting.

    Jeremy and Ken is my favorite! It’s PERFECT!

    it says something about the scope of stupidity in this episode that the crammed in yoplait challenge nonsense has been virtually ignored by tlo and commenters alike. love how the judges never even mentioned the words the designers were supposed to be inspired by; that was the challenge, right? anyhoo, it’s true mirander was a total bitch to princess hippocorn but honestly if it was me i would have been 50x worse. needy little twits like him drive me up a wall. and as much as i loved the monster dress and was happily suprised the judges loved it too, the messy little skirt sticking out the bottom nixed it for me. it looked like an afterthought. ps. british guy made a sweet pair of pants in the first episode. seems to be his forte.

    We all know these shows, if not scripted, are at least choreographed and edited in a way that gets people to watch as they would watch a bad car accident. You just can’t look away from the carnage. But, in this case, I was tempted to FF through the ridiculous shit. This is starting to look like an episode of Bad Girls Try To Sew. And, I am seriously questioning the judgement of the judges. I have lost the hope that they see something we don’t, as the crap we see is seriously lacking in substance.

    It is so rare that I agree with EVERYTHING someone says online. But, I am now a die hard fan on Tom and Lorenzo. I must say I have not disagreed with them once since I have followed them.

    This is the second time that Hot British Daddy has made a spectacular pair of pants out of unconventional materials and they’ve been waved through… I really with that he would get some recognition. I think he’s a sleeper…

    Unicornucopia of Crazy – brilliant. I have to work that into everyday conversation. And while I liked Alexandria’s & Dom’s, I felt a little sad remembering Frokemon.

    I may have missed it? But if not, I am shocked that no one has posited that Sustainicorn and Grumpy Diana Prince are – actually the same person! Look at them! And this fact makes their fight and interactions much more understandable…

  • frumpybiscuits

    Are Diana Princess and the Sustainicorn related? Have you all already figured this out? Are they 3rd cousins? Seriously they look IDENTICAL. Someone solve this mystery!
