Make your predictions now, darlings. Who’s got the target on their back this week? Or is it too early to tell? We don’t particularly care. We just want to see some crack fashion tonight.

 

We will have our thought in the morning, of course. Until then, talk amongst yourselves.

  • OffToSeeHim

    I can’t bring myself to watch. The trust is gone. But I’ll be back tomorrow to read the bitchy T-Lo commentary, just like I have been for the past seven years! :)
    (Seven years? Eight? Since the Laura season.)

    • smayer

      Geez, it’s been that long? Laura is the reason I got absorbed. I watched the Season 2 marathon right before that season’s finale and had decided to watch Season 3. Then along comes an architect on the show! I was in architecture school at the time and was excited to see her translate her design skills and methodology to fashion.

  • Call me Bee

    Hello, Dear Uncles. No lounge? Where will I get my vodka?? Oh yeah. In the freezer. Good thing–I had a shitty week.
    I have no opinion on who will go tonight. I can’t keep the contestants straight quite yet. But I hope Herr Grau hangs around for a while; his contribution last week was pleasantly surprizing. Also the tough chick from Detroit. I like her. And the quiet one from Australia (I think.) They all did well last week. Better than the winner, to my eyes.

    • Munchkn

      I like that chick from Detroit, too. I’m watching her audition on Road to the Runway as I type.

    • Call me Bee

      The guy from NZ–that’s who I was thinking of.

    • MilaXX

      I made boozy popsicles again. This time I used bing cherries, pineapple chunks and a merlot. I wish I had added a bit of lime or lemon, it’s good but could use a bit of a citrus pop.

      • Call me Bee

        Do they freeze? Vodka does not. It gets kinda syrupy and smoooooth.

        • MilaXX

          yes but it takes a long time. I’ve only done it with wine. It’s just wine and simple syrup with some fruit thrown in.

          • Call me Bee

            Mmmm sounds yummy! I’ll try it!

          • Barbara Affolter

            I made some with peach purée, peach nectar, rum, line juice, and crystallized ginger. You can use liquor, but you have to keep the mixture under 20% alcohol.

          • MilaXX

            That sounds delish! Totally stealing that recipe!

      • whaddami

        wow — that sounds ridiculously good. Would anyone object to a recipe posting?

      • Alyssa

        I totally will be making some of those! They sound delicious!

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      Lounge is for Fridays! I’m sure it’ll be there!

  • Munchkn

    I just watched an episode of Wife Swap with a polyamorous family swapping with some deeply Tea Party people from San Diego. I spent much of the past hour screaming at the TV. That Tea Party mom was worse than Marguerite Perrin, the “God Warrior”.

    • In_Stitches

      Gargoyles?!!!! Psychics!!!? She is not a Christian!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I normally don’t like reality tv, but she was gold.

      • Munchkn

        Marguerite Perrin was a least fun to laugh at. This woman and her husband were just terribly judgmental and offensive.

        • UsedtobeEP

          I have only seen that show once, by accident, but I think it was that episode. Did she have really short hair and totally lose it at the end?
          ETA: Nevermind. I just Googled her. It was Mrs. Perrin I saw.

          • Munchkn

            Yep! It was actually on Trading Spouses and the families would get a check afterward. She initially tore hers up, but then decided to take the money.

        • In_Stitches

          I’m sure. That show is like a roulette wheel: it’s gonna hit at some point and you don’t want to be watching when it does.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    I will watch-I can’t help myself. But if it becomes too boring and/or infuriating, then I know of a French crime drama starring one of my favorites, Alain Delon that can be my alternate viewing.

    • conniemd

      The trick to watching and not driving yourself crazy is not caring about who wins, who goes home and why. I enjoy doing the TLo thing watching them work and imagine how I would redo what the designer did. But the definition of insanity is expecting an outcome based on talent and real fashion when we’ve been shown over and over that’s not going to happen.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        The last time I was actually angry about the outcome was the Anya season. After that, I decided that I’d still watch, but try to keep some perspective about the show being entertainment first, second and third, and if some pleasing design resulted, that was a bonus.

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          Everyone who is anyone was angry about the Anya season. It was worse than the Gretchen season because at least she could sew. And had met sleeves.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Sleeves are sooooooo hard(whispered while batting long, artificially enhanced eyelashes approx. 100 bats per second)-and yes, I was bitter about that season for a long time.

          • Stubenville

            You need some tennis-racket sized-earrings to go with that look Anya

          • MilaXX

            Agreed. Know that I have come to piece with PR casting “types” I just go with the flow.

      • housefulofboys

        I don’t think I would watch anymore without the TLo commentary. It makes me too crazy.

    • Lisa_Co

      Ooo! What crime drama is that? I love Alain Delon, especially in Jean Pierre Melville’s film, Le Samourai.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        The crime drama is “Frank Riva”, a French miniseries made in the early 2000’s. Delon plays a cop who’s been living incognito for several year who gets drawn back into a battle against a nasty crime syndicate. It’s available on DVD.
        I love Le Samourai-saw it several years ago; and, I just bought the Criterion Collection edition of “Purple Noon”, the movie that put Delon on the map. Delicious!

        • Paula Carr

          Oh, “Purple Noon” is awesome. Even if they totally screwed the pooch with the changed ending.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            On the back cover of the dvd the blurb describes Delon in “Purple Noon” as impossibly beautiful, and I quite agree.

          • Paula Carr

            I quibble about the change to the ending, but this movie, more than any other, really captured Highsmith’s sensibility. Just gorgeous.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            I remember when I saw “Purple Noon”, which I saw after reading a rave review when it was re-released-just a great flick.

          • Paula Carr

            TCM happened to be airing it recently when I was reading a biography of Patricia Highsmith, so, at my advanced age, it was the first time I’d seen it. I immediately bought the dvd.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            I didn’t know that it was airing on TCM-good to know, even though I have the DVD.

  • Tlazolteotl

    Hooray! I need this tonight- finishing up grading for the summer semester, gearing up for the fall. This is probably old news to the other teaching and higher ed BKs, but I just discovered the “Academic Tim Gunn” tumblr this week. Hilarious. I don’t know why it never occurred to me that Tim Gunn is a perfect mentor for grading as well as fashion- it should have! I will watch tonight, practice all his concerned facial expressions, and mentally convert commentary on fashion to commentary on research papers. “Your bibliography concerns me.” “I think that your paraphrasing of that author is a bit too…literal.”

    • random_poster

      Thanks for sharing that! Off to waste time reading through Tim Gunn memes…

  • BuffaloBarbara

    Looks from the other trailer like Sandhya will be seeking advice from Tim. Drama in teams.

    I really don’t like team challenges. Someone always comes off as a jerk and they don’t produce the most fun garments, either.

    On the other hand, UC. Gotta love the hot glue gun challenge. (Though seriously, pick one where there’s something that can be used as fabric but isn’t fabric — something hard to manipulate — and take away the muslin. And the glue gun.)

  • hughman

    I would pay money for them to get rid of that Florida Queen who thinks she’s Ricky Martin.

    However if this is Unconventional Materials week, I have the sinking feeling his years of sipping screwdrivers while staring at every tacky ass drag queen in the Sunshine State who has ever lypsynched “Harper Valley P.T.A.” in a dress made of Piggly-Wiggly bags is going to pay off and spare him again.

    Blerg.

    • Call me Bee

      Wow–I’ve only been to Disney, but your description of FL makes me want to never go there again. Ever.

      • Pennymac

        I used to live there. Its an accurate description!

        • BayTampaBay

          I still do live in Florida and it is still an accurate description

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      You just know that guy is going to stick around for 5-6 episodes. He’s giving just the kind of bitchy soundbites the showrunners love.

    • http://www.bertkeeter.com Bert Keeter

      Ricky Martin is not paleezed with the comparison!

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      I am offended at your dissing of “Harper Valley P.T.A.”. I have fond memories of dancing around in my bedroom singing into a brush with a slip on my head to simulate long hair….oh, to be 7 again!

      • hughman

        I actually saw Jeannie C. Riley perform this song!! When I was a stylist in NYC, one of my friends (who was also a stylist) had a home in upstate NY and we’d go weekend there in the summers. One weekend me, her, another friend who did hair and makeup and some model went to a State Fair up there and she performed! We were entranced! And a little stoned! It was awesome!

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          You have solidified your standing as The Coolest!

          • hughman

            Not so cool but really fun. Did I mention we were stoned? Also we had this running joke about “not being too gay” because frankly it wasn’t a Bryant Park Crowd there. Weee!!! We were UNDERCOVER.

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            Really fun = cool. Most people don’t get that. :-)

            Undercover Gays. Isn’t that a sitcom?

          • EveEve

            I am absolutely positive nobody in that crowd had any clue (whatsoever) that you were gay, much less stoned. Nope.

          • hughman

            It was in an outdoor set up and we sat in the front row and smoked cigarettes and ate corndogs while she sang. But when she finished her set we all stood and cheered for her. No one else stood but fuck them.

          • rh33

            My admiration for you increased when I read that you ate corndogs at the fair. Mmmmmmmm. Corndogs….

          • marlie

            As if there was any doubt. :)

        • MilaXX

          please tell me you remember the horrible Barbra Eden sitcom based on that song

          • Call me Bee

            Oh my gosh. I do. It was awful.

      • Call me Bee

        That song was big when I was in junior high or high school. I saw Jeannie C Riley sing it on Ed Sullivan. I liked the idea it conveyed, but the music was too boring for me. I was into psychedelic by that time….

      • Munchkn

        You did the slip on your head, too? I didn’t know anyone else did that!

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          How else could you pretend to have long hair when you had a pixie cut?!?!

          • rh33

            Slips also made good pretend bridal veils.

    • MilaXX

      and you know they’re going to keep him around until at least top 6 just for the drama.

  • Kate Andrews

    I’m sure Sandhya will do great since her aesthetic appears to be arts and crafts (not a compliment). I’ll watch, but I don’t care that much yet about who gets kicked off.

  • Dino Bonačić

    sharkitasharkitasharkita – TEAM SHARKITA!!

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Well, we know how this will play out. At least one designer will freak out over having to use unconventional materials(have they never watched the show), another will have time management issues and be sewing/taping their model into the garment on the way to the runway, someone will have a melt down, etc. Will Korina and the Mitchell talk smack about Sandhya?

    • Pennymac

      And Good China will (almost) be shown!

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Most definitely, or, as Faede and Heidi would say “Ohne zweifel”(without doubt)

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          I prefer to refer to him as e.e. umlaut.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Love this-I am bowing down!

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            😉

    • marlie

      And someone will throw their teammate under the bus when they get to the critique part of the runway.

  • FibonacciSequins

    That first photo looks like Tim’s visiting a really crappy jumble sale. I just hope Angela doesn’t have her inevitable nervous breakdown this week.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      She’s already teared up, and we haven’t hit the 15 minute mark.

    • MilaXX

      I’m just wondering how much of her twitchiness we’ll have to watch before she gets auf’d. Girlfriend is not made for reality tv.

  • marlie

    Just in time! I got my huge, huge, huge deadline in under the wire, and I’m just getting settled in to settle in to watch PR!

    • Jackie4g

      Atta girl! Have a bit of liquid refreshment.

  • PastryGoddess

    Oooh look

    I have two boxes of wine and a need to be up at 8am tomorrow. What could possibly go wrong?

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      I love you. Will you marry me?

      • PastryGoddess

        Sure, if you overlook the drunk singing episodes

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          Certainly. I may even join in.

    • Jackie4g

      Thanks for the laugh.

    • PastryGoddess

      Also, if any of you kittens are in Baltimore. You must eat at The Smoking Swine food truck. I’m eating the rest of the brisket from my lunch today. It is magnificent. Jesus would weep

      • marlie

        Where is it? I don’t live in Baltimore, but I used to, and I still go down there to see friends as much as I can.

        • PastryGoddess

          They are in fells point Tuesday and Thursday. Monday, Wed, and Friday they move around. Like their facebook page. They keep it updated more than twitter.

          • marlie

            Thanks!

  • the webmistress

    This kitten is extra bitter tonight, and hoping for some amazing trash bag couture. *waves to metafilter*

  • Swiftlytiltingplanet

    I am unreasonably excited. I was in Seattle last week for the premier (for those of you who have been following along, it went waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than I anticipated), and, somehow, reading along while watching On Demand just didn’t make it.

    Plaid, plaid, plaid, plaid! So, so plaid!

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      Good to hear! We said it would!

  • Slade Thunderdragon

    I’m hoping that fäde (I refer to him as Umlaut) and New Zealand guy and Sandhya do well this week. Hoping The Mitchell gets eliminated, but I’m not betting on it.

  • NDC_IPCentral

    Am coming off 6 1/2 hours of IP Central Summer Party beer, wine and (greasy) food ingestion, gossip, team-building and goofing off. Am closing out at ye olde office and heading for the train, so I’ll not see the opening few minutes of this episode, but I imagine it will be wacky, weepy and wild.

    Will be in touch back at The Manse in about half an hour, O BK pals o’ mine.

    • Call me Bee

      When you get home, take a couple of Tums and some nice, clear schnappz to settle your stomach. Works great.

      • NDC_IPCentral

        Water, water and more water…. Boy, I wish there had been some green stuff in the food offerings…..

        • Janet B

          Anytime there’s a potluck – I bring a fancy green salad. There’s never enough green to counter act the chips and desserts.

  • the webmistress

    I know the runway show is supposed to be anonymous but wonder if the judges can tell what’s whose by looking at the designers. They all have the same look of unbridled ecstasy when their model comes out. Not to mention the hand-clapping. And the fist pumps.

    • marlie

      I wonder if they can figure it out in the first couple of episodes, but there definitely comes a time when you can just tell when something belongs to a particular designer.

  • ddfrog

    While waiting for the new PR, I’m watching last weeks edited version and there is all this new commentary added from the designers about who they think will win and be out. Weird. I wonder if that’s going to be a thing now.

    • Munchkn

      I hope not!

    • Kit_W

      I’m so glad you mentioned this. I noticed this happening about 2 seasons ago, that the original airing was way different than any subsequent airings. It seems that any remotely interesting part of the show (at least, according to my taste) that has to do with the designers actually working on their garments has been replaced by inane commentary or worse…more commercials.

  • TDSE

    That’s so nice of them to flash the designers’ names for us haha

  • Swiftlytiltingplanet

    i want it to be about popcorn.

    • Call me Bee

      Ooooh–we could hot glue a pile of popcorn onto a muslin dress, no? With a Red Vine belt.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        My dream dress! I’d get married in that! (But only to Pastry Goddess)

    • alyce1213

      “Intoxicating” popcorn. I can picture Tim eating one kernel at a time. For sure, he’s never stuffed a handful in his face.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        I love Tim, but I can’t imagine him giving in and experiencing anything in its overwhelming entirety.

      • Shibori Girl

        Why am I picturing Tim eating popcorn with a fork and knife? Of course. There. Is a linen napkin on his lap.

    • PastryGoddess

      Now I want popcorn

  • Cheryl

    Teams! Oh, hell no.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Shut up Amanda.

  • ddfrog

    ugh teams…

  • Cheryl

    OK, guesses as to product placement?

  • TDSE

    Teams are the worst. And everyone needs to shut up about Sandhya winning last week. $5 she wins it again this week.

    • Munchkn

      The designers are acting like spoiled brats whining about Sandhya winning last week.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        Seriously. It’s only the second show.

  • UsedtobeEP

    I missed the beginning—what is the source of the materials?

    • TDSE

      “Movie and movie experience items” God love Tim

      • UsedtobeEP

        Umm, popcorn and Junior Mints? Weirdness. I saw them in the theatre but didn’t get it.

    • Call me Bee

      A movie theatre-I think. Or a movie set–props, stuff that the crew would use…like that.

      • Lisa_Co

        I’ve been to that movie theater recently. It’s great. An old-fashioned one; only 2 screens and the interior is still the original with frescos on the ceiling and gilt on the Doric columns.

  • alula_auburn

    I think trying to sew next to a popcorn machine all day would make me hella sick.

  • Chinotto

    This is looking less & less like fashion’s Iron Chef and more like Chopped. :(

  • alula_auburn

    How does ANYONE get on the show this far in and not know Amanda’s deep sekrit wisdom about not using fabric in the unconventional challenge?

  • Roberta Johnson

    I’m watching Twelve Chairs with an impossibly young and beautiful Frank Langella on TCM.

    • UsedtobeEP

      That sounds like an invitation to leave this madness.

    • Call me Bee

      One of my favorite films of all time. He was totally dreamy in that movie….

    • Jackie4g

      He was quite the dish, wasn’t he?

  • alyce1213

    “I’m LITERALLY the only person who’s done this before.” Aw, I don’t want to get a hate on so early.

    • PastryGoddess

      Why not? FEEL those emotions. Don’t let them fester inside. Don’t forget to share

      • alyce1213

        Well, there is the Mitchell — I hated him the minute I saw him.

    • UsedtobeEP

      What’s the phrase? “If you can’t say anything nice, come sit by me.”

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        But only if you can be snarky. If you’re just going to be an asshole, I don’t have time.

        • UsedtobeEP

          Yes. In best Olympia Dukakis style.

  • Swiftlytiltingplanet

    It’s only the second show, and I really, really want Amanda to shut up about all her “experience”.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I would rather have seen Alexander or even Ken than Amanda-she just grates.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        I would have gone Alexander. I didn’t think I’d miss Ken, but I think I prefer undoctored aggression to Amanda’s passive-aggressive assholery.

  • Erica

    I love that they are placing their names next to their heads! I’m still going to make up bitchy nicknames but it’s nice to know.

    • ddfrog

      They started that on Under the Gunn. I figured they were using that show to test out new graphics and other ways to change the show up.

  • TDSE

    If someone just strings together popped popcorn together as a dress,
    I’ll declare them the winner regardless of how cracktastic it is.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Only if there are twizzlers involved….

      • TDSE

        I miss Jillian!!!!!

  • PastryGoddess

    We are 11 minutes in and Angela has admitted that she gets intimidated and cried. Girl Get a Grip

    • guest2visits

      I would think Angela would be a good pairing with those two if she would only look up from her trembling scissors.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    OK, Angela’s already tearing up, and we just hit the first commercial break. It’s going to be a bumpy night, to cite Margo Channing.

    • dash1211

      She’s going to need a straight jacket rather than a seat belt, that’s for sure.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Being singled out by Heidi as having the design that brought down her team’s overall score hasn’t helped Angela’s fragile self-esteem. She strikes me as being one of those very bright people who put enormous pressure on themselves.

    • evave2

      I noticed that too. Oh, she is going to be hard to take if she lasts more than half the season. Week after week of weeping. Sort of like Ricky from Season 5.

  • Chinotto

    Tim says “PuPu Platter,” and the designers don’t play well with others. So predictable. I’d love to see a reinvigorated PR.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    Okay, so far, Carrie is playing the One Sane Man part. And I like the fact that she’s been looking forward to the unconventional one. A couple of guys seem to be a bit too comfortable with the notion that they’re supposed to be leading those poor little girls around.

  • Theresa Q

    Hi Kittens. I have a feeling the Sandhya group are going to blame her just because of immunity.

    • ddfrog

      She’s not being portrayed as a team player. At all.

      • TDSE

        I think the other two on her team are coming off worse

        • alula_auburn

          The word “stray” is incredibly annoying IMO.

        • evave2

          Sorry, I think she is strong in her convictions BUT in a team challenge she has to find a way for them to look coordinated. I think the other two are trying to get her to see that she could send out a nude model and NOT go home, they are in danger of going home.
          I think Hernan is operating in terror; if somebody came up with a different plan they all agreed on it could work. But nobody has any ideas, well Sandhya has an idea the other two hate and nobody can get from a to c

          • semirose

            So she should have just sat down and shut up like they wanted her to? Her original point, that the looks can’t all be the same, was valid. That came from a wanting to win place and in the end they deferred to Hermann and scrapped everything which was a mistake. Imagine if they’d used her already made circle skirt with the top of her outfit that went down the runway.

          • evave2

            I think Hernan and Carrie were unable to form any kind of “meld” with her aesthetic. Then they both got terrified of going home. Shadhya was unable to compromise usefully with them. They weren’t nice to her because they were both TERRIFIED of being auf’d. I don’t like the scenes of people going to Tim for some kind of affirmation experience.
            Her comment about not being the same was valid, but their comment about not being uncoordinated was valid too.
            And one of them did get sent home.
            The fact that everybody they showed discussing the previous show was shocked and really confused about her win restates that it appeared most of them did not understand the judges reasoning OR feel her garment was well-made or well-done or well-thought-out.
            I think under the circumstances (she was there no matter WHAT) she should’ve been more accommodating and they might’ve been more accommodating. While the skirt was cute it didn’t go with anything at all that the other two were making.
            Also I didn’t think the winning team were all that; I wanted straw-dress guy to win, that was really repurposed with beauty.

          • Eztizen Sánchez

            They tried to have a brainstorming together first thing and she basically said “let’s do our own thing and at the end of the day, try to put something on all three garments”. So no, she shouldn’t have shut up, which is what she did. She should have talked and shared ideas at the start of the challenge so the three of them made a collection, and not three different pieces of shit.

      • Danielle

        Completely disagree. They have been riding her since last week since they (incorrectly) selected her for the auf. They’re being horrid.

        • ddfrog

          I meant the editing, to me anyway, was showing her as not playing along and just doing her own thing. But yes, they were being horrid to her.

      • Jackie4g

        She’s not team player. She encountered resistance rather than praise and went weeping to Tim? Nope.

        • sundaynightaddict

          The tattletale-ing is what sent me over the edge.

          • Jackie4g

            I’m getting a strong weasel vibe from Sandhya, not warming to this behavior.

        • evave2

          I didn’t like that either. I know they are all artists but I don’t think she knows how to do a workaround to get to YES with the other two.

          I wonder if the language barrier between her and Hernan (I find him understandable and Carrie finds him understandable, maybe the fact they are both in their non-first language makes it harder for the two of them to communicate); but personally I don’t think Carrie really has an idea what to do, she’s mostly agreeing with Hernan.

          Do you think Carrie just wants to go along or does she really have her own idea? She latched onto Hernan’s like THAT.

          • Jackie4g

            First of all, I am speaking from no great authority whatsoever, just my gut reaction, so kindly bear that in mind. I get an “entitled” vibe from Sandhya because she couldn’t bear not being praised.
            I liked Hernan, and he’s definitely got a contribution to make, but Ms. Blue Hair (is that Carrie?), was someone I was looking forward to seeing create more designs, so it’s disappointing to see her go.
            But the main thing is that the Unconventional Materials Challenge is always a nightmare, and it’s dumb luck that an otherwise talented designer caught a bum break because someone else had immunity. That’s the premise, though, that kind of thing just happens. Maybe there will be a crisis along the way, and they will ask her to come back.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      They are being stunningly mean to her. She seems to have a plan – that seems to have fit with their initial plan – but because it seems that no one believes that she should have won, it’s clear that no one cares.

      • Jackie4g

        She seems pretty inflexible to me and it’s supposed to be a team challenge.

        • sundaynightaddict

          I agree – and if you have immunity it’s sort of your duty to try to work with the other people. I can’t count how many times I have heard on that show (and others like it) that you shouldn’t let somebody with immunity bring your team down. Of course, they usually then contradict that by telling everybody to stay true to their own aesthetic lol

  • Stubenville

    Sorry I’m late. Backstabbing teams already?

    • http://viridianpostcard.blogspot.com/ viridian61

      Just wait a min or two ….. Or a commercial break.

  • Chinotto

    Two-tone purple hair girl is my early favorite for most tedious. And I like the silver skirt with numbers.

  • Stubenville

    Dead grandfather – take a drink!

    • TDSE

      Escaped semi-dictatorship with nothing, take another!

    • TDSE

      TWO dictatorships, another! God we’re going to be drunk.

  • Stubenville

    Escape communism – take a drink!

  • BuffaloBarbara

    And do we really need subtitles on Hernan? He has an accent, but he speaks perfectly clearly.

  • Stubenville

    Escape communism again – take a drink!

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Communism is bad.

      • Stubenville

        Cocktails are good. =)

        • evave2

          I hear ya, Stubenville. Me, I like Margaritas.

  • Stubenville

    Money was tight – take a drink!

    • Kitten Mittons

      Done and done. And done again.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      I’m just going to bring out my whole wine box and see how much of it I can get through…

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        No point in sharing!

        • BuffaloBarbara

          It’s all in the spirit of the team challenge. 😀 (Also, the only one to share with is my cat, and I’m told that’s not a good idea.)

          • PastryGoddess

            been there, doing that. constantly reminding myself I have to get up in the morning

          • BuffaloBarbara

            But I don’t — I’m on vacation! 😀

          • Janet B

            Yea for vacations!

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            One of my cats likes beer. I try to discourage it, but I did name him Joey Ramone, so it’s probably my fault.

      • Stubenville

        Use a straw; no washing wineglasses after. =)

  • TDSE

    “We kind of went with the the theme of, um, cocktail dresses”

    • Stubenville

      Cocktails are good… LOL

      • evave2

        Are you going to be typing that all night? Probably. BUT I agree.

    • PastryGoddess

      Cocktails were involved in some way for sure

  • Frank_821

    Alexander’s looks pretty cool

  • Stubenville

    Angela seems about to melt into a weepy mess at any second.

  • Frank_821

    Why is that Angela being so stubborn

  • Ellen T

    Where in the hell are they getting these “designers?” Gah!

  • PastryGoddess

    Can I just say that Tim is looking sartorially splendiferous tonight.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      One may always say that!

  • Call me Bee

    Since Tim hates what their team is doing, they will win.

    • PastryGoddess

      Exactly

  • Stubenville

    “I’m being picked on because the other team members won’t let me throw them under the bus.”

    • Frank_821

      Meow!

      but funny

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Possibly. Or it could be because they’re assholes.

      • Stubenville

        It is Project Runway after all.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        If we’re talking about the team I think, there’s a tossup on who’s being an asshole.

  • alula_auburn

    What in the sweet deep-fried HELL was that Raising Asia commericial I just saw??? so. . .much. . .badness

    • Cheryl

      This is my summer of mindless guilty pleasures. I can’t wait!

  • the webmistress

    Know what? It does suck to be on a team with someone who has immunity.

    • ddfrog

      Absolutely. And if you have immunity have the decency to roll with the other designers bad ideas.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        That’s not bad idea since no matter what, they’re going to blame her.

    • Cheryl

      But she’s the only winner so far; maybe they should follow her lead.

  • PastryGoddess

    Raising Asia or How I grew up to be a spoiled vapid drama queen

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Or a PR contestant. I can see why they’re paired.

    • Stubenville

      I crave a mash-up with Dance Moms.

      • PastryGoddess

        The worlds smallest black hole would probably form

      • alyce1213

        There’s already been. That’s where Asia got her TV start. So horrible.

        • Stubenville

          Glad I missed it

  • Frank_821

    Personally I think Sandhya should just try to adapt to their designs and serve as a bridge. This is a tam competition where she has immunity. She’s got nothing to lose except good will

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Sorry for pointing out a typo, but I kind of dig the idea of a tam competition, where everyone is sweating bullets over what to make the pom-pom from, and which direction it should be tilted on the model’s head… ;p

      • Frank_821

        actually I saw that typo and thought the same thing. I wouldn’t put it past them to have a tam challenge and make it a scotsmen challenge

        • Shibori Girl

          With a caber toss using their dressmakers’ dummies!

    • MacFrannie

      I’d like a Tim Tam challenge. Garments made completely out of Tim Tams. Mmmmmmm

  • BuffaloBarbara

    You know what would be fun some year? A team challenge where people get the idea of teams, and everybody competes with other teams, instead of with their teammates. Yeah. Crazy talk, there.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Makes sense = can’t be done.

    • Stubenville

      It’s not reality tee-vee unless there’s a minimum if one weeping meltdown and three conflicts.

      • PastryGoddess

        per show

        • Stubenville

          At least! =)

    • blondie65

      Oh no…that is too much like real everyday life. Real boring every day going to work and fixing/solving/developing, etc etc with your group everyday.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        Actually, I was thinking it sounded like a nice fantasy moment… ;p

    • DollyMadisonWI

      Now you’re just talking whack. It would be the end of the PR world as we know if if someone actually went into a team challenge with a good attitude.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        Oh, yeah. I realized that right after I posted. I mean, what fun could possibly be had by teams working together against other teams? Where on television do you ever see such a thing!? You’d never be able to sell ad space for it.

  • TDSE

    Oh Hernan, stop. Don’t be calling anyone baby. And you’re not in charge, queen. Sit down.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      He’s….something.

      • Stubenville

        A queen not THE queen.

    • alula_auburn

      I’ve done way too many projects with That Guy. Ugh

  • Chinotto

    Sandhya’s skirt is adorable. I wouldn’t want to throw it out for the lame teammates.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    Oh no, it’s Tim’s Oprah moment!

  • Stubenville

    Drat, no Kumbaya moment.

  • PastryGoddess

    Why did that tete-a-tete just happen? That was a whole lot of ass kissing going on

  • Swiftlytiltingplanet

    Did you know Korinna is part Native American?

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Really? Why don’t they say something about that?

    • PastryGoddess

      What NO Really! *shock*

    • evave2

      I have been surprised at the sheer number of non-native born Americans this year, it is GREAT. I love New Zealand guy AND German guy. And Angela and Hernan and Sandhya. I don’t remember anybody else right now. If everybody can mention their escape from communism why can’t Korinna mention being her father’s nationality? They are all trying to sell themselves and their aesthetic. I am SO glad we only have the one dead grandfather so far. Personally I HATE dead relative stories.

      • Eztizen Sánchez

        There’s a difference between mentioning you’re from the DR and ending all sentences with “Because I’m part Native American”. I’m making a dress because I’m part Native American. I’m using colour because I’m part Native American. My aesthetic is better because I’m part Native American. I’m a bitch because I’m part Native American.

        • evave2

          I did not get that from her at all. And I didn’t think she was a bitch. But I do think different people see things differently.
          I liked Hernan, I thought Tim was too harsh on him. Both Carrie and he could get auf’d. The three of them could not come together on a plan of action for their collection. THEN Tim gave them a harsh assessment and all three of them freaked. Yeah, I thought he got pushy on his ideas. So what? His butt was on the line.
          I happen to live in New Mexico, and in a pueblo area. LOTS of pueblos around here. People discuss being native American (they don’t use that word, they mention the pueblo they are from) ALL THE TIME and it doesn’t upset me in the least.
          I live near a pueblo of 700 people who are the only ones to speak their language. And they have kept it alive for over 500 years. So hearing somebody discuss being a native American or a puebloan or a Dine is ok by me.
          I watch Chopped on Food Network every Tuesday religiously. I love it. But every cheftestant tells dead relative stories and how they want to win for “blank” and they all cry. Guys, girls, young, old. They all cry. I have gotten rather hard-hearted about dead relatives because of that. It’s like everybody is saying I deserve to win because of “blank” and I can’t judge WHO loved gramma more (on Chopped, it is generally a dead gramma who taught them to cook).
          I appreciated Hernan’s story, I don’t think he overdid it.
          I appreciated Korinne’s story, and did not find it overdone. But I agree she mentioned her father’s background more than Hernan did his grandfather.

          • Eztizen Sánchez

            It’s a reality show. They’re basically required to tell a sob story. The difference is, some of them tell it once, when told to do so, and others can’t stop talking about it. And as you said, “she mentioned her father’s background more than Hernan did his grandfather”.
            Hernan mentioned his grandfather helping him start his career once. Korina’s first sentence in the show was “because I’m Native American” and hasn’t stopped since. Sandhiya is from a whole different culture, country, history, language, and doesn’t constantly remind you that everything she does is because she’s Indian.

            I’m from a small town of 1,000 people, in the mountains, where we try to preserve our local traditions and our local dialect of a minority language that was forbidden until 40 years ago. I don’t explain all of my actions with “because I’m Bizkaitarra”.

          • evave2

            That sounds like where I’m from; could you tell me where Bizkaitarra is?
            I agree she mentioned her background more than once, multiple times. But I already said Hernan only mentioned HIS grandfather once. The fact that the guy helped him start his business well, I fell he wishes his grandfather could see him on the show. It would bum me out anyway.
            In this area people talk about being from their pueblo all the time. It informs somebody like me of what their aesthetic is, it seems like everybody I meet from our closest pueblo is an artist of one type or another and knowing about that helps me understand their art.

          • Eztizen Sánchez

            It’s part of the Basque Country.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    The straw jacket looks really cool

  • PastryGoddess

    Hernan should stop talking now…like really now

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      I was more thinking about 15 minutes ago.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Yeah. I was initially inclined to be semi-generous (though I was side-eying the whole “I’ll take charge easily” thing), but he’s not helping himself.

    • MacFrannie

      He is a major dickhead!

    • blondie65

      yep…kind of really done with him. Which of course means he’ll be around for at least 4+ episodes.

  • Frank_821

    Good lord Angela. this is just sad

  • Chinotto

    Amanda is getting the crazy eyes …

    Angela = bottom three, escapes the auff by the skin of her teeth.

  • Theresa Q

    I’m afraid to wonder who is coming off the strongest. The Blue Team?1?

    Angela sort of reminds me of myself when I thought I could just be a fashion merch major without actually knowing how to sew. That didn’t last too long, haha!

  • PastryGoddess

    Is that Shakira or Melanie Griffith?

  • Swiftlytiltingplanet

    Completely off-topic: I live for the day when I can buy Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter and not just eat the jar. I made it with Nutella. I can do it with Cookie Butter.

    • UsedtobeEP

      I just don’t buy either of them anymore. Can’t stop eating it.

  • MacFrannie

    I’m surprised how much I’m liking Fade. He seems to have a good head on his shoulders. Maybe because he’s dealt with jack booted thugs and this PR experience doesn’t even register on his stress meter.

    • mom2ajs5

      I’m surprised that I like him too. I hope it holds through the season.

    • NDC_IPCentral

      I’ve decided that his name was a fake-out for the viewership. Sounds as though he’ll be a pretentious empty suit, but not at all. Fade is a 40-something German guy, so he has some life experience, some maturity and a sense of humor that seems grounded. I’m rooting for him.

      • Call me Bee

        Yes–he seems to have a typical Euro stoic-osity in that all the emotional junk just doesn’t faze him.

  • Guest

    Which commercial is not like the others?

  • Stubenville

    “Not being in the bottom” instantly means they will end up in the bottom.

  • NDC_IPCentral

    “some tension between Sandhya and I” — Oh, Carrie, take a remedial English class, wouldya?

    • housefulofboys

      I hate that so much, and you hear it so much. Don’t get me started on grammar and punctuation…

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      I’m glad I’m not the only one that cringed.

        • alula_auburn

          I like to consider myself unhinged in training (small niece is but three). But I won’t sell my niece yucky coral-orange lipstick that makes her look like she made out with a pumpkin.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    Why must all the Angelas on this show be unstable??

    • PastryGoddess

      You need to go and school them on the proper way for Angela’s to act

      • Angela_the_Librarian

        Not to mention the obsession with flowers…those are practically paper fleurchons!

        • Call me Bee

          Ahahahahahaha….yeah.

          Jubilee Jumbles!

    • Frank_821

      Now let’s be fair, S3 Angela ws passive aggressive not unstable…lol.,, Vincent was unstable

      • Angela_the_Librarian

        I suppose you’re right. I’ve tried hard to block all memories of Vincent and the things that “turned him on”

      • evave2

        God, the florettes. “I am obsessed with florettes.” If I mispelled florettes, forgive me. That was a hoot. I never ever ever met anybody obsessed with florettes Or even heard of anybody obsessed with florettes.

        • Frank_821

          Technically it was rosettes and Fleurchons. It spawned a weekly feature on the BPR blog-Fleurchon Friday

          • evave2

            THANK YOU. I could not remember that word. Isn’t it odd how some things just disappear from your circulating memory? You know she wasn’t really bad, just that she kept taking fleurchons onto everything. I am obsessed with fleurchons. What an odd element to feel obsessive about.

    Ok kittens go and visit TLo’s twitter NOW

    DO IT!

      They are on a ROLL!

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      But I don’t want to Twitter! It’s mean to make me sadz.

    I miss makeup daddy’s tight t-shirts…

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      We all do….

    Where the heck did they get those film dresses come from? I turned my head and….

  • Shibori Girl

    I’m on PDT and won’t see the epi for hours. Thanks for the warnings of the horrors to come.

  • Stubenville

    So this time will someone win for making their materials look like fabric, or will someone be auffed for their stuff looking like fabric? (Which drugs did the judges do?)

    • Pennymac

      All of them.

  • ddfrog

    What is Heidi wearing??

  • NDC_IPCentral

    Jeebus, Heidi…. dressed for an Amsterdam red light window???

  • BuffaloBarbara

    Heidi, I don’t mean to alarm you, but someone made you a top that deliberately makes it look like you’re wearing your underwear on the outside.

  • Slade Thunderdragon

    Heidi, sheer is not only not chic anymore, but also not even shocking. Let’s just stop with it.

  • Danielle

    Why are you listening to someone who has previously failed? Hitching your stars to the wrong wagon, Korina and other person whose name I can’t recall.

  • Slade Thunderdragon

    Carrie’s looks like a wonder woman costume made from fruit roll ups.

  • Frank_821

    well that worked out well

  • Stubenville

    Like the Sprouse look.

    • Frank_821

      yes hers was the best of their group

  • Theresa Q

    i’m not seeing Fantasy or futuristic?

  • Stubenville

    WIthout the muslin, Amanda.s model would be naked.

    • alula_auburn

      I thought she looked really uncomfortable.

    • PastryGoddess

      Where was the textile they were supposed to create?

  • Swiftlytiltingplanet

    Where did Sandiyha’s cute skirt go?!

    • Stubenville

      Plastered with film strips.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        So she rolled with her teammates’ horrible ideas….

  • Slade Thunderdragon

    Amanda’s looks inspired by Lupita’s Met Gala outfit from this year.

  • Stubenville

    The panniers! Barf.

  • Call me Bee

    Looks like Green Team nailed it!

  • Slade Thunderdragon

    Alexander’s is really pretty.

  • PastryGoddess

    Kinda liking the green team

  • Stubenville

    Weird bulges on Fade’s

    • PastryGoddess

      He did that on purpose. I forgot what he used

  • Frank_821

    I don’t see strong cohesion with Angela’s team

  • PastryGoddess

    Angela’s look does not go

  • Pennymac

    Dare I say that so far nothing is horrible?

    • UsedtobeEP

      Yeah, it was a good show. Agree. Lots of fun stuff in there. Hey, fashion before drama.

  • Frank_821

    Mitchell’s is actually fun

    • BuffaloBarbara

      I know. I was shocked to think, “I want Mitchell to win this!”

  • Chinotto

    Heidi is so happy with all the tight & shiny-shiny!

  • PastryGoddess

    That team is on the bottom

  • Swiftlytiltingplanet

    two collections – the first and third? – looked the same.

  • Stubenville

    Is Kini’s model wearing a bath mat?

  • TDSE

    And it’s official, nothing is AWFUL. First non-conventional materials challenge for that to happen?

  • mom2ajs5

    Kini going home?

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    Torn between team blue and team purple. I loved the straw dress and the disc dress!

    • Qitkat

      Those were our favorites too. Mr Q just announced he is done, and I will be watching the rest of the season alone :(

  • Slade Thunderdragon

    Kini’s dress looks like someone ate a bunch of school spirit and threw up on a poor defenseless model.

    • PastryGoddess

      Taste’s Like Team Spirit?

      • Slade Thunderdragon

        Yeah. Team Spirit from a restaurant which failed its health inspection, but bribed the inspector so they could still profit off of their E.Coli-infested offerings of pep.

  • TDSE

    That’s some bullshit about Angela’s dress. It was nowhere near that bad.

    • ddfrog

      To be fair it was not finished. 50% muslin.

      • TDSE

        Pretty sure all of the white underneath wasn’t muslin but scripts. She would have been wiser to have the typeface side be the outside, but still.

        • ddfrog

          Good point. Maybe it’s just that it didn’t look finished.

      • TDSE

        ANNNNNND that argument just lost, given Amanda’s look. Judge’s love their crack and all.

    • PastryGoddess

      It wasn’t bad at all, but it wasn’t cohesive either. And it stuck out like a sore thumb

    • Call me Bee

      Not compared to some other the other teams dresses, but it was compare to what the two guys did. Theirs were both outstanding, and hers was boring.

    • TDSE

      It just totally smacked of producer manipulated drama. Heidi was going to say that unless Angela’s dress was spectacular.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        Totally!

  • PastryGoddess

    Fuck me Angela, get over yourself

  • Slade Thunderdragon

    Angela’s was not the worst up there. I don’t feel that the judges really needed to single her out.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Agreed. It wasn’t great, but really, not that terrible, either.

      • Slade Thunderdragon

        Yeah. At least when they called out Patricia’s from a few seasons ago for bringing down Michelle’s during that one round, Patricia’s had a bunch of ugly white leather fringe on it or whatever.

    • evave2

      I think what the judges were saying was that the OTHER two in her group were so good if she had had a semi-good dress they would’ve won.
      Even my husband like the straw dress. Totally cool. But her look dragged the other two down.

      To me it seems like she believes that because she TRIES everybody should give her a trophy. Her idea was not good She did not execute it well. Her teammates did really good work and got screwed by her poor work. So it wasn’t that hers was the WORST it was just BAD.

      • semirose

        I could go with that argument if the winner didn’t have basically the same dress but with lanyards instead of snowflakes glued on. And the other two on that team were waaaaaaaay stronger than the other two on Amanda’s team.

  • Frank_821

    I am surprised they already established the winnign and losing team

  • NDC_IPCentral

    Well, Frau Klum relished giving Amanda a pounding, didn’t she?

    • Stubenville

      She was probably hoping for waterworks.

    • Cheryl

      I don’t like to see her criticized because she seems very fragile. I don’t mind snarking the unjustifiable optimists, but when it’s someone so close to tears, it’s not fun.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        Exactly.

      • PastryGoddess

        If she is THAT fragile, she doesn’t belong on this show.

      • ddfrog

        Agreed. But if you can’t handle criticism, you shouldn’t be in fashion.

    • Gatto Nero

      You mean Angela?

      • evave2

        Yes, you are right. It was Angela. I find I am getting less and less tolerant of criers. And she started crying during the auditions. They put her on to fail. I think third time will be the charm, because they didn’t like her work last week, and they didn’t like her work this week.

        You know, last week somebody suggested no aufs for three weeks. I so agree, but I think with the no aufs for three weeks, the judges should give critiques to every garment. That way they know where they stand.

  • Frank_821

    I imagine the loser will be either Amanda or Korina

    • Call me Bee

      I’d say Amanda, since hers was just strings on a muslin.

    • Stubenville

      I agree, but are they ready to auf the “fan favorite” so soon?

  • BuffaloBarbara

    Sean is very good, but the problem is, he makes unflattering clothes very well.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    WHAT?

  • the webmistress

    The curse of the team member with immunity strikes again.

  • Call me Bee

    Huh–didn’t see that coming!

  • Stubenville

    And Amamda will win for a bunch of strings on a muslin dress. Cracktastick.

  • Frank_821

    really amanda’s team was on top…I think they were daring to fabricate,,but it felt rough

  • UsedtobeEP

    I am surprised about that.

  • Chinotto

    Know-it-all Carrie. Should have let Sandhya keep her skirt!

    • housefulofboys

      Kinda loving that.

      ETA: Loving that Sandhya was right and that Carrie is going to be taken down a notch (I hope).

  • http://viridianpostcard.blogspot.com/ viridian61

    I need another glass of wine!

  • Stubenville

    Hope the Sprouse look wins.

  • Swiftlytiltingplanet

    Oh, Carrie. Way to throw Sandiyha under the bus!

  • alula_auburn

    Now let’s see how they will blame Sandhya for eventually going along with their ideas.

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      Especially when they’ll probably criticize them for making too similar dresses (just as Sandhya warned them about)

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        That is completely what the criticism is going to be.

  • Frank_821

    actually I dig the marquee dress a lot! that’s probably made the difference

  • Slade Thunderdragon

    I would laugh at the choice for the winning team, but it’s not funny that they won. It’s sad. They were honestly the worst team.

  • alula_auburn

    Do I sound like a Philistine if I ask WHERE they are taking text and font? I mean, I’m a word geek, so I love me some text or font, but. . .meh.

    Ugh, not loving this “vibed” as a verb.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    With all the SF talk, I assumed they were going for a greenscreen reference!

  • stayl

    How is Amanda’s dress “stunning”?

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Drugs. Clearly.

    • PastryGoddess

      They all drank the Kool-Aid

    • Chinotto

      Stunningly bad.

    • SewingSiren

      In the script.

  • Stubenville

    The coronation of Amanda. Stop trying to make it happen Heidi!

    • Frank_821

      at least Amanda was being gracious about sharing the credit

      • GTrain

        I dunno… saying they should pick whichever is their favorite, when Heidi said hers was her favorite was a lil bit shady to me

        • marlie

          Yeah, she knew that she shouldn’t say “pick me!” so that was her rather insincere (in my opinion) next-best option.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      From now on, we shall christen Amanda “Fetch.”

      • PastryGoddess

        You win

      • TDSE

        YES! TLo needs to make that happen.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        The internet now belongs to you.

  • Cheryl

    Who is the guest judge? Did they identify her?

    • Stubenville

      Some blogger.

    • marlie

      Garance Dore. She’s a fashion photographer and blogger. She’s also The Sartorialist’s partner & girlfriend. She’s a talented photographer, and she has an eye for wearing and catching interesting “on the street” fashion, but I don’t know much that qualifies her to judge “runway” fashion. But the again… what qualifications do most any other guest judges have?

      • Gatto Nero

        Zero.

  • mom2ajs5

    Definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results = me watching Project Runway year after year.

    • mom2ajs5

      Except the very early years that is!

  • blondie65

    I kinda like they included as their materials…. “VHS tape”. Can’t remember the last time I’ve heard that….

  • Chinotto

    Ohhhh, throwing Tim under the bus is never the right move.

  • oldscrumby

    Now it’s Tim’s fault for not understanding their genius?

  • Frank_821

    In fairness they do look a lot alike

    • SewingSiren

      But so do the winning collection.

  • TDSE

    Oh Carrie, you’re killing yourself.

    • GTrain

      hopefully

    • MilaXX

      send her home, she bugs!

  • Stubenville

    Thank you Nina!

  • MilaXX

    It looks like Destiny’s Child costumes during the Tina Knowles era. fugly!

  • PastryGoddess

    oh is this Gretchen level justification. Delicious

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      This is just the second episode – I think they win.

  • PastryGoddess

    Do these studded tires make my bus look fat?

    • Adrianna Grężak

      Throughout the episode I thought “Ok, Project Runway Season 13 is reminding me of older seasons – less personality disorders, more conflict about actual design” – and then the “winning” team was revealed.

      I’m convinced that the producers created a “teamwork” story arch and chose the Amanda’s team to juxtapose the (clearly) worst collection. I found it suspect that there were clips of that team talking about how well they were communicating and getting along earlier in the episode. Tim pretty much summerized it in the judging – he told one team that they weren’t doing well and they still failed, the other team regrouped and were chosen as the winners

      Also, the teams were clearly organized by the producers, and I began to wonder if Sandhya won the first episode because all the designers hated her work and the producers knew that the next episode was a 3-person team challenge. (And therefore they knew her teammates would gang up on her and fight)

      • MilaXX

        I’m certain the teams are grouped for maximum drama. I also think the producers like award early wins to the returning designer like they did Kate last year just to further play with the minds of the other designers by making them believe she knows more about playing the game than they do.

  • MacFrannie

    Ooooo. Nina is PISSED.

  • Slade Thunderdragon

    Nina: “I don’t see the reason we have to explain our decisions to them.”

    Isn’t that what a critique is though? Or is this proof of the fact that theses decisions are arbitrary?

    • Qitkat

      Her arrogance and defensiveness is over the top.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        I’m kind of over her as a judge. She’s the one that harps on wearablity and marketability when that’s NOT WHAT THIS IS ABOUT.

        • DollyMadisonWI

          I am SO OVER her as a judge. She does not seem open to anything that isn’t mainstream or middle-of-the-road.

  • Chinotto

    Can they send both of them home? Please?

  • Frank_821

    okay now that’s was immature of them to selectively quote Nina

  • Stubenville

    They should all go home for that damn hair.

  • Swiftlytiltingplanet

    OMG. Hernan and Carrie just stooped to new lows. They are complete assholes.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Yup. It was originally a tie, but in the end, they won assholes of the week on a team week, which probably means they win the title for the season.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        Which/if one of them stays can crank out the best, most creative stuff ever and they will still be an asshole. And it is forever captured on tape. Even as they claim “edit!”, they still said it and behaved it. You can’t make an edit that bad if the material is not there.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    Wow Sandyha is more gracious than me. I would have yelled “told you so” in their faces.

    • Lattis

      I’m different. Crooooooow!!!!!!!! I love your avatar. : )

    • pdquick

      Oh, wow. I wonder if Sandhya finally just decided, “Screw it. I’ll make what they’re making and let them hang themselves”? That would be kind of awesome.

  • UsedtobeEP

    Nina seems just unreasonably angry this evening. And yes you do have to explain your decisions. It’s kind of your job up there, lady.

    • HM3

      Thank you! I thought Nina and The Posen were being unreasonably biting/cruel. Maybe the judges got together in advance and decided it would be a Bitchy Day?

      • sundaynightaddict

        The fact that she tweeted “Meana Garcia is coming today … @ProjectRunway #getready #ProjectRunway” just shows how happy she is to try to be exceptionally bitchy.

  • alula_auburn

    Thanks, Tim, for saying Hernan was such an asshole. In your inimitably gracious way.

  • PastryGoddess

    A pair of jeans? WTF you cracked out idiot!

    • Stubenville

      With random crap dangling to your knees. [eyeroll]

  • Stubenville

    Bye Hernan.

    • oldscrumby

      One less person to subtitle.

      • sundaynightaddict

        There was a point last night where they subtitled something Angela said and I couldn’t believe it. Not only does she not have an accent but she wasn’t speaking so quietly that you couldn’t understand exactly what she was saying. I know this happens all the time on PR, but I’m glad I still find it a little shocking.

        • oldscrumby

          They’re subtitling everyone and it actually feels kind of insulting for both them and us as viewers. Hernan might need it a bit, even though he makes a conscious effort to speak clearly, he probably has the thickest accent. But there’s no reason that Angela or Fade needs it anymore than the other English speakers do. Angela is from India, she’s almost guaranteed to have grown up speaking English the same way the guy from New Zealand did, and yet they don’t feel the need to subtitle his non-American accent. As for Fade, maybe we’ve all just gotten dumber since Uli who had the exact same accent and level of fluency yet never needed subtitles unless she was whispering.

  • housefulofboys

    “One…or more…of you will be out.” Oh, please, pretty pretty please?

    • GTrain

      oh to see the look on their faces…

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    Even with Angela’s weaker design Team Straws should have totally won.

    • Adrianna Grężak

      I also didn’t think her design brought down the team as much as Heidi said so. I thought the paper texture she ended up with was nice

  • dash1211

    I just keep telling myself that these “winning” designs must look different in person because they certainly
    look like crap on my TV.

    • LovelyIdio

      Okay. I specifically went to TLo to make sure I wasn’t losing it, and the winning designs were…kinda terrible. I don’t mind the ideas, but they look sort of like trash. I haven’t watched PR in a while…I probably won’t be tuning in next week, either.

  • Frank_821

    I have to say that Sandhya may have had the obligatory meltdown but she was way more gracious and supportive than the other 2. Bravo to her for championing the other 2 during their critique.

    I am surprised she didn’t keep her circle skirt. She could have incorporated the gold/bronze elements just to the top without sacrificing that cute skirt. oh well she probably was too tired to deal with it

    • FibonacciSequins

      I don’t understand why none of them tried basketweaving the film strips, for a little variety. I guess Hernan’s nagging wore them out.

      • Gatto Nero

        I think it was also a time issue.

  • Stubenville

    I’m shocked at the win. [eyeroll]

    Is Amanda wearing green bra straps under her jumpsuit? (I can only actually listen to her say the same thing so many times.)

    • Stubenville

      Yup, it’s like they just keep recycling the same scripts.

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      Amen

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    Wow, Amanda’s dress was just slightly more polished than Pepper’s in season 1. What a joke!

    • Stubenville

      And Sosa’s string and washer monstrosity.

      That’s right — that’s who I was thinking of. Though the washer bikini is also a good comparison.

    • MilaXX

      • FibonacciSequins

        Ha, I had the same thought.

    • Gatto Nero

      I don’t blame her for being angry. She could have handled it with more maturity, but she didn’t deserve to go home, and that was clear to everyone in the room.

  • PastryGoddess

    Good for Tim on calling out Hernan’s bullshit

  • Frank_821

    Well let’s be fair, carrie, if Sandhya did what she wanted, she still wouldn’t have been kicked off

    • Gatto Nero

      She wouldn’t, but the team’s collection would have been less cohesive, which was their main concern (rightly or wrongly) after Tim’s critique. Sandhya had nothing to lose, but Carrie and Hernan did.
      It all blew up anyway.

      • Frank_821

        I should say i meant if Sandhya didn’t have immunity, she probably would have fought harder for her original design. That ugly mess only came about becomes she yielded too much to those two

        • Gatto Nero

          Oh, I see. It would have been interesting to see what they all would have come up with individually if they hadn’t thrown the collection together in the last four hours.

  • alula_auburn

    I love how obviously annoyed Tim is with this. No save for you, Carrie!

  • ddfrog

    OOOh mean. No need to end your TV career like that.
    BTW, I recall during the first episode that Zac Posen commented that Nina and Heidi had an allergic reaction to her.

  • MacFrannie

    Ugh. Can’t stand Carrie. Good riddance. Too bad they didn’t get rid of Hernan too.

  • housefulofboys

    That was a pretty cool sendoff from Tim. She deserved nothing more after that childish display.

  • oldscrumby

    Odds on Carrie being brought back for more drama a few episodes down the line?

    • Stubenville

      Only if someone slips on a banana peel or storms off next week.

      • oldscrumby

        This is a noticeably more stable group than the last few seasons. I guess all the near violence of the last one left a mark on the producers. Fragile Chinese girl might even make it to an actual off-ing because her co-contestants haven’t thrown her to the wolves.

        • gitchygitchymama

          near violence? did i miss something?

            And Sandro,too. 2 aggressive crazies in 1 season is too much!

          • kerryev

            yet Ken was in the running for Amanda’s spot.

      • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

        When I saw Sandhya asking for a sit-down with Tim, I thought she was going to tell him she was leaving and I was so mad. No one better pull that crap this season.

  • UsedtobeEP

    I am so disappointed because I loved what she did last week. Unfortunate.

  • SewingSiren

    What a load of shit. There wasn’t a 1/4″ difference between the top and the bottom group. All of the top looked alike all of the bottom looked alike . The straw dress should have won and Angela’s dress did not bring that group down. The rainbow bright group should have been in the bottom, and I can’t say which should have gone home because they all looked alike too.

    • Laylalola

      It’s so stupid — it’s entirely conceivable that both the best and worst of the night are in the same group. In which case neither would win or be our as deserved.

      • Qitkat

        That is the real hazard of team challenges. I tend to think the risk is part of the judges’ dilemma (and maybe even their delight) and I must say it possibly has never been handled more poorly than in tonight’s decision.

        • Gatto Nero

          The viewers and designers hate it and think it’s unfair, but the producers live for this stuff. It’s precisely the injustice of the team challenges that turns them on.

          • Qitkat

            YUP!

  • BuffaloBarbara

    I loved the blaming it on Tim’s critique. Like it’s his fault that you don’t know the difference between “cohesive” and “identical.” Now, what I wanted after it instead of the interview show, is Tim explaining how he would have done it and turned it into a win. Add a common element? Do it through styling? Inquiring minds want to know. That should be the aftershow: Professor Tim’s Redemption Workshop. At the end of the season, the best redemption gets the TG save (they get a runway walkoff with the judges) and gets to compete as the fourth at Fashion Week, since they’ve been sending four every season, anyway.

    As unconventional materials go, this was not their most interesting choice — things found in a movie theater. They should have done a riff on the car theme, found a theater that was about to be torn down, and made them use the seating, carpets, light fixtures and cords — with the demand that it look like glamorous movie clothes in the end. But then, they might not have had time for all that exciting bickering. (And if it’s a team challenge, maybe the teams should have had time to confer before collecting their materials. Or did they? I had a phone call at the beginning and missed a little.)

    • Qitkat

      This is an awesome idea! The viewers I think would really respond to such a thoughtful concept. Which means it could not happen. I think all of us are getting really tired of the reality show construct which becomes more and more inexplicable or defendable every season. This is such an excellent way for Tim to use his save. Stop The Insanity!

      As for the team challenge, they had 15 minutes to gather their materials which were on the stage and in the lobby, only what they could carry. At some point Tim yells out, have you conferred with your teammates? Which was total BS, as there was no time, there was all the frantic grabbing going on.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        I think it would be fun — just a little half hour production, with Tim spending intense time with the auf-ee and the losing garment, either repairing what was wrong or using it as inspiration for a new one. The garment has to stay put after X amount of time so early aufs don’t have an advantage over later ones, but the ultimate result would be that each auf’d designer would be in the running for the fourth spot. So yeah… it’ll never happen!

        Does sound like BS. Time to come up with a concept before grabbing everything would have made things better. Do they know that it’s not really all that entertaining to watch people look at a pile of crap and say, “Huh — we don’t really have any idea what we’re doing”?

        • Qitkat

          You know, over the years, stretching way back, I’m thinking of the Los Angeles season when so many things went off the rails, there were really long conversations here, back before the blog had the format it does today, when us kittens offered up ideas to “fix” the show. There were so many amazing suggestions, that came up, it was almost like some of us viewers would make better producers than those who hold those jobs in the reality show world. Maybe you remember those times.

          Why oh why can’t there be any shows that are more like what we as viewers want to see? Faux drama has overtaken real talent and creativity and attention to the details we really wish could be included. Have you ever seen a show out of the UK called, I think, The Great British Sewing Bee? It’s a bit sweet at times, but all in all, it is a lot of fun to watch, and the critiques are genuine, the drama is not manufactured, the talent is there. There’s real sewing and design going on. It’s still a reality show, but in a different vein.

          • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

            I love Great British Sewing Bee! The judges really know their stuff, and in the two seasons so far, experience and craftsmanship has really paid off.

            I watch it on the BBC – ask @Qitkat:disqus where she gets it in the US! One of the judges, who is EXTREMELY HANDSOME is a Savile Row tailor, and the other has been teaching sewing for 40 years or something.

            I just watched series 1 – I loved it! Ann was adorable.

    • Gatto Nero

      All great ideas. And as far as I know, the teams did not have time to confer before the mad rush for materials, though Tim did shout into the fray, “Are you talking to your team members??”

      • sundaynightaddict

        I thought it was hilarious that they all yelled back yes, just to appease daddy, even though they weren’t.

  • sundaynightaddict

    Only two episodes in and the judging is already making me apoplectic. I CAN’T EVEN with Amanda’s dress… so much WTF-ery that I’m just sitting here in disbelief.

    Also, it felt sort of awkward watching Carrie not be a graceful loser, but I was still cheering her on for telling the judges she thought they were making the wrong decision lol

    I don’t think they needed to be so brutal with Sandyha during and after judging. I didn’t think they were “picking on her” in the workroom, but they definitely were at judging.

    • Qitkat

      I’m with you, I honestly thought Amanda’s garment, I refuse to call it a dress, would send her home. Do the judges not remember outfits from the past made of strings and washers that landed designers in the bottom? Hers was just that bad.

      As for Carrie, I was in her camp, she was a sore loser, but she defended her garment, which they used to admire. I think her mistake was in being so negative to the judges themselves, they had to save face and auf her instead of the guy.

      There seems to be a cruel streak in the judges this season that is unwarranted, especially so early in the game. I’m also wondering if there are so many contestants not originally from the US this season, if they really are more unfamiliar with the format of the show.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        I think the problem with Carrie’s defense was that she wasn’t defending the garment on the runway, but giving excuses about the garment that she didn’t send down.

        • Qitkat

          Yeah, on reflection, you’re right. By that point, I was paying less and less attention, as the direction the judging had taken was making me stabby.

    • Gatto Nero

      Amanda’s winning look reminded me of Emilio Sosa’s strings-and-washers disaster from a few seasons ago, when he sent his model out nearly naked. This was not the most inventive or successful use of the materials. Amanda herself said it was “rough.” The judges’ crack smoking continues.
      I have concluded that team challenges and the immunity benefit are both bogus and should be eliminated altogether. (Angela was saved only by the strength of her team members’ designs. And Sandhya was saved only by her prior win.) Carrie didn’t deserve to go home; I was looking forward to seeing more of her work. And as much as I dislike sore losers, I’m glad she expressed herself before packing up to go.

      • pdquick

        She basically just did Emilio’s outfit over muslin. Not even that original.

  • BlackbeardsWyfe

    Tantrums! Tears! Tantrums!………………Not very fond of how the producers have limited the “materials” by setting out “pre-selected” materials. I think these challenges are much more fun when they get some cash and go to a corner bodega………

  • DollyMadisonWI

    Throwing Angela under the bus was a new low by Hernan and Carrie (are those their names?). [ Maybe we should invent a new phrase that is applicable to PR – like throwing someone under the Brother.] That is taking a page out of the Under-the-Gunn booklet when Anya and Mondo said Natalie should’ve been eliminated. It’s shameful.

    I wish someone in the lounge would tell people like Carrie to STFU because it’s a game show and those are the rules and she should’ve thought of that before acting like an asshole. BTW, I wonder when Tim is going to have his “that is utter bullshit” moment.

    • bringbackbeatles

      I thought the treatment of Sandhya was ridiculous, but typical. If people don’t agree with the winner then suddenly she is ostracised and villainized by some of her co-contestants. Like Carrie saying if she hadn’t had immunity she would have been out and it’s not fair and whines. You know if she had the immunity it would have been a totally different viewpoint. If you want to stay in, then work hard, get the immunity and stay. Don’t fault Sandhya because the judges picked her design over yours. I felt like she went out like a toddler having a tantrum. I can’t tell you how many times I heard her whine about how she didn’t deserve this horrible decision and blame it on everyone but herself. And, I love how Hernan and Carrie responded to the who should go home instead of you question. They kept saying that it shouldn’t be either of them, but didn’t have the balls to just come out and say Sandhya. Then, Carrie has to get in another dig before she goes. Sandhya may have blown the outfit this week, but atleast she remained poised and showed her strength of character. So, she still won in my book.

    • SewingSiren

      I don’t think Herman and Carrie coved themselves in glory, but I think the judges flat out ask him who should go home if not him, or who had the worst dress, something to that nature. So he answered and gets blasted by the judges for picking someone not on the chopping block, which is exactly what he was ask.

  • DollyMadisonWI

    I skipped straight to the runway portion of the show because at this point, I don’t really care about anyone’s personalities. But I had to rewind to listen to Heidi’s description of the challenge because it just seemed really, really vague based on the output. (I know – what’s new.) My confusion was magnified when I saw the two teams chosen and even more magnified when hearing the critiques.

    • In_Stitches

      That’s my plan for the season. Watch Big Brother until 10, then immediately switch over for the runway and judgment. I was completely baffled by the ‘top’ team’s placement. The bottom team on the other hand had earned their placement.

  • pdquick

    I thought the skirt Sandhya was making wasn’t bad, minus the numbers and letters, which didn’t really work. If the collection wasn’t cohesive, Hernán and Carrie should have taken elements from her design and incorporated them into theirs, because they were the ones at risk of going home. Instead, they succeeded in pulling Sandhya into a copycat design that crashed and burned for all of them. For a moment it appeared the judges were going to get that Hernán was the culprit and spare Carrie, which would have been the right thing to do. But she’d been getting the winner edit through the whole show, which of course, was really masquerading as the loser edit.

    • Leslie Streeter

      Carrie’s entitlement was…impressive.

  • http://lazycircles.blogspot.com/ Sam Hawk

    It was an evening of grand PR traditions.
    Two teams of equally messy, odd looks are singled out. For no apparent reason, one is praised to the hilt and the other is criticized like like worthless losers and a designer with potential is sent home. Meanwhile, the worst designer is saved by being put in the strongest team.

    Sandhya FTW

  • Tanya Wade

    If I had taken a drink every time someone said “Cohehesive!,” I would have emptied the entire Napa Valley by now. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means…..Seriously, sad to see Fäde and Hawt Kiwi lose because of the bitter tears of Angela Von Kant.

    • Leslie Streeter

      Girlyfriend…Angela needs some meds, don’t she?

      • Tanya Wade

        As long as she shares with the class, lady!

      • sundaynightaddict

        It is SO uncomfortable to watch her.

  • MilaXX

    Okay finally caught the episode in it’s entirety. The purple team should have won with the iridescent cd dress as winner. I call BS on Heidi’s singling out Angela’s look.

  • Anique Ashraf

    It was kind of hilarious how they had all the contestants from different countries (in this case, Fade, Angela and Carrie) literally use almost the same script back to back in their segments. It all went, “I was born in (insert country here) and came/escaped to the US when I was (insert age/life event) and now FASHION!”

  • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    I don’t recall ever being so mad at my TV as I was watching this episode unfold. And I watched every episode of ‘Lost’.

    I have a couple beefs with the show already. 1. They have this fancy schmancy lounge with a very high end samsung fridge which presumably spits out water in many forms, including seltzer. Yet why are they always drinking from disposable plastic water bottles? Even if they’re recycling these water bottles, why aren’t they using actual glasses, or water bottles that can be washed? So they could get that fridge to be in every episode but they couldn’t get samsung to spring for a damn dishwasher? In addition, the top of the fridge is covered with red solo cups. Seriously? They couldn’t find a dish and cup and tumbler sponsor?

    2. How is it that the producers and their staff are able to sneak into the apartments at night and no one notices? That’s just creepy.

    • somebody blonde

      I believe that was probably fake surprise that we were seeing. The same fake surprise that we saw when they found out that it was an unconventional materials challenge, because how could they not have noticed they had those crates under their seats?

      • pdquick

        That scene was probably shot over several hours. Tables full of crap were moved in, crates were given, etc.

  • CanIbeFrank

    I got a weird vibe when Tim was telling his version of what happened during his mentoring sessions, to the judges when they looked at the garments close up. Now, I’m not necessarily saying that the losing team should have started all over and ditched what they had been doing after talking with Tim, but Tim, who SHOULD be the mature one here, comes across as whiny and defensive more often than not, “Hey, it wasn’t mean who told them to go down this route–you should have seen the mess before. I just guided them and now look what happened!”
