Project Runway Open Thread

Posted on August 14, 2014

Oh, shit.

 

Project-Runway-OTS13E4-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (1)

It’s the Awkwardly Inserted Product Placement Challenge. Remember the heady days of “Design a dress based on words people use to describe Yoplait brand yogurt?” Good times. And by that we mean, “painful times.”

 

Project-Runway-OTS13E4-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (4)

We are all going to need to get SOOOOOO drunk for this one, aren’t we?

 

 

Ooof.

Definitely going to need multiple cocktails.

Which is good, because this week we’re moving on to ROUND 2 OF OUR “DESIGN A PROJECT RUNWAY SIGNATURE COCKTAIL” Contest, the winner(s) of which will receive an autographed copy of our book, Everyone Wants to Be Me or Do Me, which is hilarious and should be taught in schools worldwide. Here are the finalists of the competition (and/or your drinks menu for this evening, depending on how adventurous or depressed you’re feeling at the moment):

 

 

The Sustainicorn

by Sarah

Organic Nation Vodka, Hansen’s Natural Blue Sky Soda, and starry-eyed wonderment. With (eco-friendly) glitter.

The Southern Discomfort

by Sarah

Absolut Peppar, SoCo, and Bitters, because SOMEBODY drew a moustache on your BABY.

The Santino

by QHarp

Equal parts vodka, gin, rum, tequila, bourbon, scotch, brandy, peppermint schnapps, orange juice, cranberry juice, tomato juice, coke, 7-up, and seltzer. Garnished with 6 cherries, 2 orange slices, lemon wedges, lime wedges, and olives. When they spit it out, tell them it’s not your fault they don’t understand your vision.

The Tim and Andre

by Danielle

Bourbon and ginger beer. Serve with a Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuit.

The Suede

by Jacob Bowen

One part blueberry flavored vodka, one part dirty water, served in a glass covered with a denim koozie. The drinker must refer to themselves in the third person.

The Vincent

by Kitten Mittons

Mix rum, bailey’s, wine, and some asparagus in a basket. Poor mixture over your head, wear basket for the rest of the night. Try to hide your erection brought on by your own creativity.

The Insane Crotch

by krelnick

Vodka, cranberry juice, and Tang. With a cherry.

The One Way Monkey

by kateastrophe

Stoli Vodka and Cream de Banana served with a Swarovski swizzle stick.

 

You have to vote for just one. It would be helpful if you typed your choice in all caps. Please don’t post and then ask if you can change your mind or say you’ll come back later to give your answer. Just pick one and type it in all caps in order to vote for it. You have until the opening of next week’s Project Runway thread to vote.

And of course, feel free to talk about whatever the hell else pops up, but especially about Project Runway and who you expect or need to go go home tonight.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      THE SANTINO-because I dare not question his vision.
      And this challenge will be-design a look to compliment one of Red Robin’s signature burgers. Now I need to pour me a tall glass of something potent.

    • Michele

      THE SANTINO, of course!

    • Winter_White

      THE SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT.

      Sarah is so good at this I’m almost worried about her…

      • kimmeister

        Sarah was on fire!

      • Sarah

        Worry? Shoot. Ain’t nothing to make UP creative cocktails. I don’t actually DRINK them. (Much)

      • decormaven

        SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT FTW.

    • lundibleu

      THE SANTINO – because that is the one I would pay good money to see Nina, Heidi, Tim, Zac & the Duchess drinking. One can only imagine what faces Nina and Heidi would pull with that one!

      • Inspector_Gidget

        It’s aesthetically not potable!

    • MilaXX

      THE SANTINO

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      THE SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT because Wendy Pepper is the OG PR villain.

    • Patrick Scott

      All of these made me laugh out loud! How can you only have one? Shouldn’t we all enjoy one of each?!

    • Adriana

      Oh my god, THE SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT. So good.

    • Brett

      THE TIM AND ANDRE… carbs

    • hughman

      “I WILL COME BACK LATER TO GIVE MY ANSWER.” Srsly, who does that??

      Also : Note to Princess Sparkle Pony from his future – STAY AWAY FROM THE FRENCH FRIES.

      • Stubenville

        Perhaps they’re trying all of them? [shudder]

      • kimmeister

        Red Robin has such tasty fry seasoning though!

        • hughman

          I know but a moment on the lips, forever on the hips!

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          Red Robin scares me.

    • Stubenville

      Do we get to see Nina or Heidi eat actual food?

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        There is probably a clause in the fashion version of the Geneva Convention that disallows that.

      • Imasewsure

        Can you imagine Nina sitting down to one of those monstrosities (two patties, a fried egg, onion rings piled high with sauce, cheese and three “tasty” sesame seed buns)? Heidi could wolf one down with the best of us (and chase it with a beer and/or a shake) but Nina? The sponsor would never recover!!

        • Sarah

          Nina would not open her mouth that far. It would be unseemly.

    • Winter_White

      As the crucial voting continues –

      I wonder what catchphrase Nina is going to intone tonight? There are the obvious candidates, like “Fasten your seat belts — it’s gonna be a bumpy night.”…”Snap out of it!”…”I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore.” But I’m hoping for more of a surprise:

      (Nina, reeling in horror ) This is no dream, this is really happening!!!
      (Unhinged Nina) The loons!…the loons! They’re welcoming us back.
      (Weary Nina) That’ll do, pig, that’ll do.

      • Lattis

        Nina: You know how to whistle don’t you Zac? Just put your lips together and blow.”
        RIP Lauren B.

        • Winter_White

          Or: “I won’t be igNORED, Zac…”

          • SewingSiren

            No one puts Nina in the corner.

            • Winter_White

              One for Heidi: “I have a head for business and a bod for sin.” (Imagine the twinkle in her eyes, saying that in response to a ST&S design.)

            • Jackie4g

              Perhaps if someone had put Nina in the corner, she’d be better behaved today?

        • Munchkn

          I don’t believe in heaven, but I like to picture Bogie whistling for his beloved Betty, coming to join him at last.

      • alyce1213

        Your post is killing me, in the best way possible. Hilarioso!

        • Winter_White

          Thanks. I spend way too much time watching movies. :)

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            You can never spend too much time watching movies! Unless, maybe, it’s cutting into your reading time…

            • Sarah

              I find that I can do way too much of both rather successfully.

            • Winter_White

              Watching movies, reading, knowing the name of every single lovely alcoholic libation gifted to mankind…AND being funny. Where do you find the time, lady?

            • Sarah

              Time has no meaning on the InterWebz. I got lightning-fast Googling skills, too :)

            • Winter_White

              Google didn’t give you that wicked and wonderful sense of humor! When I read your Southern Discomfort recipe last week, I had one of those sudden surprise ‘gasp/wheeze/snort/HEE!’ moments — and was just glad I was home alone. ;)

            • Sarah

              Aw, you’s sweet. I always loved that episode – HOW DARE YOU DEFACE MY CHILD. IT IS THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY.

            • Swiftlytiltingplanet

              Somehow I missed the first season and Wendy Pepper. It makes me feel less than.

            • Sarah

              It was Delightful. Also, Jay McCarroll is still my favorite winner, ever. As in: I’d wear that stuff.

            • Swiftlytiltingplanet

              OMG! You could be a judge!

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              How true-movies and reading of two of my favorite pasttimes.

    • kimmeister

      So many good choices, but I have to go for THE SUSTAINICORN because the idea of starry-eyed wonderment as an ingredient gives me giggles.

      • Lisa_Co

        Me, too. THE SUSTAINICORN.

    • bowlwoman

      TIM AND ANDRE

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      THE SUSTAINICORN

    • MilaXX

      So are all the guest judges going to be bloggers this season? Nothing against bloggers, but I want to see a few actual design folks in there.

      • FibonacciSequins

        If they’re all going to be bloggers, I want to see TLo in there.

        • dash1211

          Maybe they WERE there and are keeping it a secret until the episode airs (wishful thinking, I know)

          • FibonacciSequins

            I’m crossing my fingers!

        • MilaXX

          I’m sure they passed.

    • SewingSiren

      INSANE CROTCH
      because it sounds like a pretty good drink and I think I have all the ingredients.

      And I bet whovever gets that window pane check grey suit wins the challenge.

      • Munchkn

        The cherry is rather fitting for a drink named Insane Crotch, no?

        • TwiddlyStun

          Every ingredient is fitting if your vocabulary is tawdry enough.

    • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

      Holy shit, I think I damaged my organs laughing at these. I laughed hardest at THE VINCENT because that guy was truly creepy.

      • Raspberry2012

        I voted for Santino, but the Vincent was truly epic.

    • Munchkn

      THE SANTINO because that sounds like a concoction I would have whipped up back in the day.

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

      I was going to ask the Bittern Kittens’ opinions on staying sober for a whole episode of Project Runway this week.
      Maybe next week.
      Maybe not ever.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        You could try it for science.

      • Stubenville

        That’s just too great a personal sacrifice.

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

          After reading TLo’s post above, I am tending to agree.

      • Sarah

        No, I don’t think it’s advisable. You may notice things that are too infuriating/insulting to your intelligence to bear.

    • Myra Amler

      THE ONE WAY MONKEY

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

      THE ONE WAY MONKEY. I still like Dmitri.

    • rebeemoon

      I must have THE SANTINO. Because it will not only give me vision, but double vision.

    • Lammz

      SANTINO.

    • dash1211

      Decisions! Decisions! THE TIME AND ANDRE by a nose over The Southern Discomfort.

    • Miranda Reseigh

      THE TIME AND ANDRE because it actually sounds drinkable and biscuit.

    • Greg

      THE SANTINO! Because who am I to question the vision of a visionary?

    • Inspector_Gidget

      THE TIM AND ANDRE

      Oh shit, this is a Red Robin challenge? Can’t wait to see how they shoehorn that in there.

      • Stubenville

        Designers, make a dress inspired by this bottomless dish of steak fries.

        • Inspector_Gidget

          This half of the room is on Team Ketchup. This half of the room is on Team Mustard.

    • PinkyK

      THE TIM AND ANDRE. BTW -What happened to Andre?

      • artjournallife

        Where is Andre? Has anyone seen Andre?

    • alyce1213

      THE ONE WAY MONKEY
      Hysterical, and I might actually drink that.

      • Raspberry2012

        Me too. And the drink sounds delicious as well! (*Sorry, I’ll show myself out*)

    • PastryGoddess

      I just can’t with these shoehorned product placement shows. Jeebus producers are you that strapped for cash?

      • dash1211

        But, golly, one of the prizes is the chance to design an accessory for the Red Robin servers!!!!

    • rainwood1

      Garcon, garcon? I’ll have the Santino, please.

    • Lattis

      Man, those are funny – it was tough but I guess THE SANTINO. My #2 would be the vincent – fits him to a tee

    • Meri

      TIM AND ANDRE- because it’s only responsible to eat something while drinking enough to make this stuff less ridiculous. Red Robin challenge, honestly.

    • JulieK

      THE TIM AND ANDRE! Because Tim! And Bourbon! OK mostly because of the Bourbon. See how my phone auto – caps it?

    • abishagijh

      THE SANTINO

    • Cele Deemer

      TIM AND ANDRE!!!

    • KT

      THE VINCENT

      Though these are all hilarious. But The Vincent gave me a good laugh.

      • Kitten Mittons

        I did not even know I was in the running, because I had to watch this episode on Sunday, and was not at home on Thursday!!!!! WHUT.

        Flattered, and even more flattered that I got a vote. Yours is the only one I’ve seen so far, because the others are better :) But thank you!

        • KT

          quite welcome!

    • Aidan B

      THE SANTINO. Oh my god though, these are all so good. How did I miss this contest??

      • Lattis

        That’s what I was thinking – there should be a Cray-Cray. That phrase and “one way monkey” are lines said on PR that we have adopted as our own and say all the time.

      • FibonacciSequins

        It happened during last week’s PR open thread.

    • The Prune

      THE SANTINO

    • jilly_d

      THE SANTINO. brilliant stuff.

    • TRSmith

      THE SANTINO

    • Patricia McMahon

      These are all hilarious, but I must go with wretched excess and vote for THE SANTINO.

    • alula_auburn

      In the classic judging spirit, THE SANTINO, even though the Tim and Andre is cuter and more drinkable.

    • katetastrophe

      Oohhhhh!!!!! It’s just really an honor to be nominated!!!

    • Sarah

      Oh, my gosh. I’m so very honored to have not one but TWO entries in the competition. I’m totes blushing right now. I am also going to not be insanely gauche and vote for my own ideas – so THE INSANE CROTCH it is, because: Damn, that’s funny.

      • Lattis

        You guys are brilliant! Katetastrophe, Sarah, all of the entries.

    • Delmekia Flannigan

      THE SANTINO

    • Imasewsure

      This is so hard…. they are all so good…. ummmm THE VINCENT in part because of the idea of wearing a basket on our heads for the show and also because of the sheer delusion of creativity which is so appropriate for PR across the seasons…. The Suede was sooooo close though…

    • Bexxx

      THE SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT because it made me actually lol.

    • katetastrophe

      THE TIM AND ANDRE because I’ve been on an egg fast all week and I want some carbs goddammit!

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        Egg fast?

        • katetastrophe

          Egg Fast. Yep. It’s basically what it sounds like with the addition of fat in the form of butter or coconut/olive oil and cheese. That and ultra low or no carb spices/herbs/condiments. It’s a jump start for a low carb high fat diet or to help break a stall in weight loss on a low carb eating plan. It’s not fun. But it works. I’ve lost over 7 pounds in 6 days. Some of the weight will come back, but sticking to low carb is supposed to keep the weight loss going it will just happen more slowly.

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            My god. That sounds awful. And makes me almost glad that I have pretty much no will power. (Says the woman who eats Cookie Butter from the jar and Salted Carmel frosting from the tub from the bakery….)

            • katetastrophe

              I don’t know what cookie butter is, but I want those things. My will power is quickly waning, but there is no money in the budget to buy clothes in a larger size so it’s either lose some lbs or craft my bedsheets into togas.

            • Swiftlytiltingplanet

              Cookie Butter is made from cookies. It’s from Trader Joe’s, and it is magic of the devil.

              I completely understand about the clothes budget – and you go, you Bitter Kitten, you!

            • katetastrophe

              See, now I’m jealous that you can go to Trader Joe’s. There isn’t one remotely close to where I live. Maybe it’s for the best.

            • Swiftlytiltingplanet

              My other fave thing from Trader Joe’s is their Wasabi Peas….It’s kind of cool place, but I don’t think it’s quite as all that and a bag of chips as a lot of people. About half the stuff is the same price or slightly more than my other grocery store.

            • katetastrophe

              I recently moved from South Florida where TJ’s was starting to open a couple of stores, but I missed out on them. I’ve been to them in California though. My mother in law needed more Two Buck Chuck and introduced me to the wonders of Trader Joe.

            • Pennymac

              Cookie Butter? DROOL< SOBBING HYSTERICALLY!

            • artjournallife

              Make togas, then use them to audition for PR!

          • Pennymac

            I haven’t had any decent carbs in 2 and a half weeks. I haven’t cheated once. And I’ve lost 11 pounds. (Less than 20 grams of carbs per day, not including fiber carbs.)
            I do, however, cry when I think of cookies.

            • Swiftlytiltingplanet

              I’m so proud of you, yet so sad for you.

            • katetastrophe

              Awwww Sweetie I so feel your pain. I went into the supermarket this morning and they were baking bread and I thought I was going to weep while buying my umpteenth brick of cream cheese. But hey! 11 pounds not too shabby.

            • Call me Bee

              Good for you. You have inspired me, as I have thyroid problems as well, and need to lose carbs for an extended period of time…..

    • Sarah

      Also, as effing stupid as it is to bring Red Robin into it, I actually like the challenge for tonight because I learned to sew by taking garments apart, making patterns, putting them back together, embellishing them, etc. etc. I will be excited to see the results! And there’s still plenty of Cannon Fodder to go so I’m not too worried about the eliminations at this point.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      TIM AND ANDRE because of the cheddar biscuit. (And, you know, it’s sort of a salute Santino…)

    • Janice Bartels

      THE TIM AND ANDRE- because those biscuits are good!

    • rainwood1

      Ah, Red Robin and PR are reduced to this. I remember when Red Robin was a single funky burger place near the University of Washington with a view of the boat traffic on the Montlake Cut. And I remember when PR was a quirky little show about design and the creative process with wit and drama thrown in for good measure. How the mighty have fallen.

    • FibonacciSequins

      Excellent entries, Kittens! Tough choice…I’m going with THE SANTINO because I can just see him saying that and it’s making me laugh.

    • Courtney

      THE TIM AND AND ANDRE. Because Red Lobster biscuits are the only reason to go there.

    • Shelby

      THE SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT

    • EveEve

      THE SANTINO. All were brilliant though.
      And yes, my goal is to have a three drink lead going into the show intro.
      Who should go this week? The guy who reminds me of Santino – the one who made that black scarfy thing last week.

      • Sarah

        Hernan? I don’t think so, but it’s possible. I’m betting that Kini guy isn’t making it much longer though…

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          To compare Hernan to Santino borders on the blasphemy.

          • Sarah

            A lil weird, I agree – I dunno what EveEve’s idea there is, though. Personally, I find Santino sort of attractive. He is totally hilarious on RPDR, and his voice is so DEEP. Hernan, on the other hand, seems like a passive-aggressive beeotch.

            • katetastrophe

              Santino always seems slightly exasperated on RPDR and who can blame him with Visage on the other side of RuPaul. I miss Drag Race so hard.

            • Sarah

              Really. He and Ru have some insane banter, though. I love it. I also miss it, hard. I saw the first few seasons, but I don’t get that channel and Netflix isn’t offering any newer ones. I would give up half my channels to just get Logo! I know their website has full eps, but my home computer situation is not up to snuff for that type of thing, unless I want to watch it sitting in the dining room. Which, for a show like that, I need my gliding recliner couch with built in cup holder, a coffee table to hold extra dranks and the ashtray, and plenty of room for excited hand gestures.

        • EveEve

          Yeah, Hernan. Taste issues.

          • Sarah

            You were so right. Heinous!

          • BringittotheLight

            Agree and also, no one likes a whiner. Make some lemonade out of those lemons or go home…and he went home.

      • FibonacciSequins

        For me, odds are on Hernan.

      • EveEve

        Yes! And next week: Sandyha

    • erikagwen

      THE INSANE CROTCH – they all made me laugh, but that one caught me off guard and made me do a spit take.

    • DeTrop

      THE ONE WAY MONKEY for me. For oh so many reasons.

    • little britches

      One INSANE CROTCH, stirred and on the rocks please; hold the cherry. Cheers!

    • JulieTy

      THE VINCENT because it turns me on.

    • Christina

      The TIM AND ANDRE. Love the callbacks to the good ol’ days. “Where’s Andre?!”

    • muzan-e

      ONE WAY MONKEY!
      Incalculable love for its inspiration and its creator. <3

    • H2olovngrl

      THE SANTINO. well done!

    • Pennymac

      I’ll have a SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT, please.

      But these all are Bitter Kitten Hysterical!

    • ashtangajunkie

      THE SANTINO. That was really hard!

    • Jangle57

      THE SANTINO – it sounds about what I’ll need to get through this episode…..

    • VicksieDo

      THE SANTINO!!

    • QHarp

      Y’all! I’m super touched! (In the heart, not in the head. Well… in the head too, but I’m talking about in the heart.)

      I’ll cast my vote for the VINCENT– heh, art boners. And that was a hard-ass choice, too.

    • Pennymac

      I just realized that Heidi sounds like she’s saying Shark Eater instead of Sharkita.
      (I forgot to watch last Thursday, and never on demand’ed it.)
      This is such a MEH season so far.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      THE TIM AND ANDRE…I would actually drink this one. They’re all funny, though. Congrats everyone!

    • Qitkat

      THE SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT

    • kim bunchalastnames

      hahahha. these are all brilliant, but i’m voting for THE SANTINO.

    • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

      THE SANTINO because I just love him.. :)

    • http://www.redriverhistorian.com texashistorian

      THE TIM AND ANDRE

      Where is Andre?????

    • http://urban-gypsy.com/ Tess Danesi

      This is hard but after much consideration I’m giving it to THE SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT.

      Tough competition from the Sustainicorn and the One Way Monkey. So much brilliance here.

    • Stubenville

      Another fashion blogger as a judge this week? Seriously?

    • stellamaris73

      You are all geniuses! But I have to give this one to the INSANE CROTCH for the priceless combo. (I’d drink the one-way monkey.)

    • VOLTUPS

      THE SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT

    • katetastrophe

      I wouldn’t be mad if Amanda was Auffed. The Mitchell Perry and fade are really growing on me. And I’m hoping for really good things from Char.

      • Stubenville

        I was guessing that it would be Amanda’s (probably undeserved) second win.

        • katetastrophe

          Noooooooooooooo

        • marlie

          I’m sure she’s not going to deserve it, but I think so too.

    • frannyprof

      As a former Red Robin waitress (Woodland Hills, CA, 1991-1995), I reserve the right to express my opinion unreservedly on the fug that is sure to come of this episode.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        We look forward to your expert comments.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Expert in the house!

    • QHarp

      Did I just look for PR on Bravo like it was 2006? Yes. Yes I did.

      • Winter_White

        As you were doing that, were you also thinking, “heehee, can’t wait to hear what Kors will say tonight!”…?

    • annla

      ONE WAY MONKEY. I love that phrase. But for sheer creativity, making me laugh, and PR nostalgia I love The Santino and The Vincent.

    • Kimbolina

      I gotta go with THE TIM AND ANDRE.

    • NDC_IPCentral

      Yowie, 145 comments and the show hasn’t begun. I’ll spend the first 15 minutes reading comments rather than dealing with the goofy product promo.

    • Theresa Q

      Hello Kittens!!!

      • Stubenville

        Waves hi!

      • katetastrophe

        ¡Hola!

    • Kaley Linton

      THE SANTINO. Because, well, obviously.

    • Stubenville

      Red Robin – gak!

    • QHarp

      Does that girl have ice cream boobs?

      • Stubenville

        And sugar cones.

    • FibonacciSequins

      That Red Robin guy is so excited to be on PR. Look at how he’s dressed.

    • myristica_fragrans

      how the mighty have fallen.

    • madisonfw

      THE ONE WAY MONKEY. One of my all-time favorite PR sayings, plus it sounds yummy!

    • NDC_IPCentral

      VP for “Brand Transformation???” Oh honey, you need an IP attorney, and a shave.

    • alula_auburn

      Oh, God, this is so uncomfortable. Everyone involved looks embarrassed. Also, whoa, veggie burgers are totally cutting edge!

    • TwiddlyStun

      The Long Island SANTINO of course.

    • Cheryl

      Suits? I thought it was soups!

      • Stubenville

        No soup for you!

    • FibonacciSequins

      Oh, the dramz!

    • Pennymac

      Oooh. Pay back

    • Kimbolina

      Oh that’s dumb. One person picking for everyone? Ugh.

    • MilaXX

      Oh lord, they want everyone to hate Sandhya.

    • alula_auburn

      Wow, the producers must want Sandhya to get shanked.

      • MilaXX

        MTE!

    • Courtney

      Well played, producers, to give them even more reason to hate her. No obvious manipulation happening here.

      • katetastrophe

        Yep.

      • ddfrog

        Yep isolate her even further. Stir up drama! During judging Hernan makes a comment to her, she gives him the finger and says “Don’t ever talk to me like that again.” Clever to show the two sides of her there.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      So Sandyha is designing for the Vikings…

    • Stubenville

      Suck it up Amanda.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        I am really growing to dislike her.

        • katetastrophe

          If I’m remembering correctly, I think I kind of liked her on her previous season. Now, not so much.

        • Courtney

          I barely remembered her. I would have been happy to continue on in that way.

    • RoseJB

      SANTINO for the win!

    • katetastrophe

      Samantha who?

      • Cheryl

        There’s a Samantha?

        • LJCdoc

          She’s my favorite – I’ve liked everything she’s done. They’re doing their darndest to hide her though, which does not bode well.

          • katetastrophe

            But maybe it means she’ll fly under the radar until the contestants are narrowed down to where they’re easily identifiable.

            • BLauDGaspode

              That’s what I was thinking.

      • BLauDGaspode

        Every week I have to go and look up who she is…

    • NinaBoo

      THE TIM AND ANDRE!

    • oldscrumby

      I actually don’t mind this blatant product placement as much. It’s just a few seconds of spiel and then an actual challenge. None of that “be inspired by this random thing that we will never reference again” crap.

    • FibonacciSequins

      That doesn’t sound good, Amanda.

    • myristica_fragrans

      i guess they can’t afford to give them anything but fries.

      • Courtney

        Missed opportunity to watch someone try to sketch while eating a burger with a fried egg on top.

      • katetastrophe

        I could really go for some fries.

        • myristica_fragrans

          same. i want bottomless fries!

    • Kimbolina

      GUYS, they get FRIES.

      • Pennymac

        That makes it ALL better

      • FibonacciSequins

        Bottomless!

      • Stubenville

        Surprise twist – they have to make an accessory out of the fries.

        • Kimbolina

          They’ll all just glue a bunch to a muslin.

      • AnneElliot

        Not a french fry fan myself, but I have to admit Red Robin makes AWESOME onion rings.

    • dash1211

      Enjoy the food then hit the bathroom before heading to Mood….

    • Theresa Q

      The sustainicorn. I think we all have sustained as fans for a long time.

      • Cheryl

        ALL CAPS

    • BLauDGaspode

      So many good submissions!
      THE TIM AND ANDRE has my heart though.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Dear god. Shut UP, Amanda!

      • FibonacciSequins

        It’s all about her.

        • Stubenville

          So she thinks.

          • FibonacciSequins

            Exactly!

    • myristica_fragrans

      amanda needs to stop lying.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Did she just lie about something?

        • myristica_fragrans

          something about not wasting energy thinking about why sandhya picked what she did.

          • FibonacciSequins

            Oh yes, I was thinking she was deluded.

            • Swiftlytiltingplanet

              Same-same.

    • laylagalise

      THE INSANE CROTCH

    • Nariya

      THE VINCENT. I died laughing.

    • Stubenville

      Oh yes Amanda, you were singled out – none of the other suits were tacky. STFU.

      • Adrianna Grężak

        My first thought was “don’t these designers have dyes to change the fabric now.” Anya always resurrected her generic beach cover ups with fabric dye. I specifically remember when she changed the mustard yellow to bronze/brown

        • Stubenville

          Since it was a one day challenge and likely synthetic fabric, some dark, dye would be tough.

    • dash1211

      God, Amanda, STFU, please.

    • myristica_fragrans

      i cannot believe how much these fools are complaining.

      • NDC_IPCentral

        Oh, believe it…. Wonder whether the producers egg ‘em on.

    • BLauDGaspode

      I don’t get to watch until tomorrow during the kid’s nap time, and that means I won’t get to enjoy any of these fine drinks… It’s entertaining, though, to try and guess what’s happening just from the comments here.

    • alula_auburn

      Oh, FFS. It’s not like Sandhya had such great stuff to work with in the first place. Not to be all Mary Sunshine, but the people devoting all that mental energy to suspecting her of SABOTAGE says more about them.

      • myristica_fragrans

        everyone needs to shut up already.

        • artjournallife

          I wonder if it would be easier or more entertaining to watch an etire episode on mute.

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            Only if we could supply the lines!

            Reply

            • artjournallife

              I’m in!

          • DuBey2

            I often do. Except for the judges’ comments. But now they bug me, too.

    • TDSE

      Hopefully Sean can rebound this week. The eye candy must stay.

    • Courtney

      Flesh colored mesh and brown corduroy. Even my color blind, fashion challenged husband would know that was a bad idea.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Did I just hear the word “flesh-colored mesh” and “high-end garment” in the same sentence?!

      • MilaXX

        Sadly yes! And yet they will blame it on the poor suit they got stuck with if they are on the bottom.

      • blondie65

        damn…i thought my one glass of wine already got to me.

    • LilyVanessi

      Could Sandyha be any more patronizing and snarky? So far I’ve seen nothing that would lead me to believe she knows half as much as she thinks she does.

      • TDSE

        Wait what?

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        Are you confusing Amanda and Sandyha?

        • TDSE

          Don’t you mean Fetch?

    • MilaXX

      Girl shet up! Worry about yourself!

      • BringittotheLight

        LOL! You wrote “shet up”! I love it, you made me laugh out loud. Thank you.

    • kerryev

      ONE WAY MONKEY

    • mom2ajs5

      Have they mentioned budget for the challenges this season? Use of a card or anything?

      • BLauDGaspode

        I’ve heard budgets, but I don’t think they have a card sponsor this year.

        • mom2ajs5

          Thanks! I guess I missed it. In the past they made such a big deal about staying within budget. Maybe they edit all that out now to fit in new drama between the contestants ;-)

          • BLauDGaspode

            I’m sure as the pool narrows down, they’ll focus on that more.

      • Cheryl

        No, the card was a Product Placement for that season.

    • Courtney

      Glasses does spend an awful lot of time offering commentary, doesn’t she?

      • FibonacciSequins

        Korina, and yes.

    • TDSE

      Korina is total scared because she knows Cristine is a better designer.

    • QHarp

      My God, it’s not like she reached into your head her mind ray and pulled out your idea.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        She did! She totally did! And she’s going to kill you in your sleep!

        • Stubenville

          I thought it was cats that killed people in their sleep?

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            No. It’s mind ray idea stealers.

            • QHarp

              IT’S CATS WITH MIND RAYS.

            • Swiftlytiltingplanet

              O.M.G. We’re all going to die!

            • alula_auburn

              OMG that explains so much (she says with kitty icon).

          • alula_auburn

            No, but they do steal your fabulous fashion designs.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Motorcycle jacket: completely unique, new and innovative. Never seen it before. In fact, she should patent it.

    • Ginmaru

      It’s killing me to have to choose just one…THE SANTINO!!!!!!!!!!

    • katetastrophe

      I’m trying to keep up here and on Twitter. Dang near impossible.

    • Frank_821

      Okay I must g with the VINCENT

    • Peeve

      Jesus, idiots–just sew your fucking garments and quit comparing and/or bitching! It’s making me stabby. (Can you tell?)

      • FibonacciSequins

        And only 15 minutes in!

      • Stubenville

        But reality tee-vee needs DRAMA!

    • Munchkn

      Somebody needs to clue Sean into the fact that we no longer call that color flesh anymore. It’s peach or maybe something else. Tim even mentions that his his book “Gunn’s Golden Rules”.

      • myristica_fragrans

        i call it white woman’s nude.

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          I just snorted wine out my nose.

      • Cheryl

        Shouldn’t that be “Gunn’s Flesh-Colored Rules”?

    • Cheryl

      THE SANTINO, because that looks delish!

    • TDSE

      THE SANTINO, because that was hilarious.

    • Jackie4g

      THE SANTINO.
      WTF is with this challenge and the suits? They should have each had a burger chosen for them to inspire their design. As an example, the pizza burger inspires a white polyester suit. They’d be together forever.

      • myristica_fragrans

        it’s not in the budget.

    • R.A.

      THE SANTINO

    • QHarp

      Everything about this Listerine commercial makes me uncomfortable.

    • FibonacciSequins

      Hernan. lol

    • TDSE

      OMG Amanda’s looks hideous so far.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      When will Kotex sponsor a challenge?

      • marlie

        PLEASE don’t put that out into the universe. If it ends up happening, I’m coming after you.

        • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

          If that happens, everyone is invited to my house to watch together.

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            You’d better live in a liquor store.

            • decormaven

              There will need to be vats of alcohol for that one.

            • BringittotheLight

              Hilarious. That was a good one.

      • artjournallife

        “for this challenge you must only use white fabrics. The winner will be featured in a WTF ? Kotex commercial

        • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

          Can you imagine a “fringe” dress made of plastic tampon tubes? I can hear Heidi now, “From this far away, I couldn’t tell what it was made from!”

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      i really hate Hernan.

      • BLauDGaspode

        I find it hilarious that this popped up with 3 upvotes as soon as it appeared on my screen. The universe agreed with you.

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          Sometimes we all just KNOW.

          • BLauDGaspode

            It’s the mind rays.

            • Swiftlytiltingplanet

              And cats.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Maybe we should start calling him Big Head.

    • Qitkat

      Men’s Classic Suits. SNORT. Nothing classic about any of them.

      • PastryGoddess

        Classically UGLY

    • Stubenville

      WTF is Hernan making with a huge piece of silver pleather?

      • BLauDGaspode

        His silver ticket home one can hope.

        • Stubenville

          You called it!

          • BLauDGaspode

            And it feels SO GOOD!

      • myristica_fragrans

        it’s called fashion. you just don’t understand.

    • AmyP

      INSANE CROTCH. I miss Michael.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Why do these suits exist in the world?

      Ah, producer manipulation. They already have issues with her, so do… this.

      Because who’d want to watch a show about the challenge of designing? I mean, that’s just silly.

      FRINGE? Amanda. No.

      • Stubenville

        But think of how funny it’s going to be to watch Nina jump through hoops to praise the fringe.

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          It’s like you pre-viewed the show!

          • Stubenville

            No, but I swear I could write the scripts at this point.

      • artjournallife

        Fringe makes no sense. It’ll only make a mess when it keeps getting dragged through the ketchup.

    • myristica_fragrans

      good lord, it’s not like they wouldn’t have picked the suits strategically if they were in her place. all these damn victims.

    • GTrain

      Fringe. Again.

    • Kimbolina

      I hate these MyLifetime pop up things. And I love how Tim is NOT feeling Amanda’s nonsense.

      And she’s complaining about awful fabric and yet is adding FRINGE?

    • alula_auburn

      I don’t think “fringe” and “saving grace” belong together.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Go home Tim, you’re drunk.

        • alula_auburn

          Or at least go find Andre and have a nice biscuit.

    • Qitkat

      Did we really just hear Tim say: I think the fringe is your savior. He’s been drinking before he goes into the workroom, right?

      • BLauDGaspode

        He had a tall Santino.

      • PastryGoddess

        obviously

        • blondie65

          exaaaccttly….

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        If you were Tim, wouldn’t you?

        • NDC_IPCentral

          Oh, your comment made me chortle.

      • artjournallife

        How else can he cope with PR anymore?

    • Grefunda

      THE SANTINO!

    • MilaXX

      First of all there are a million moto jackets on the market now. Second dude with corduroy should try turning it inside out and using the smooth side. Third none of those suits were fabulous so stop seeing sabotage where it’s just producer manipulation. Are all these people new?

      • Pennymac

        Apparently. Also, Uber annoying.

      • Stubenville

        Repeat after me: Have these people ever watched a single episode of Project Runway?

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          Clearly, no.

        • FibonacciSequins

          They’re acting like they think they’re on Survivor. I expect to see talk of creating alliances any minute now.

      • Adrianna Grężak

        Non-gray hair girl didn’t even create a jacket – it was a vest with a weird length. I don’t think either of them creating interesting or new renditions of the motorcycle jacket.

    • marlie

      This was such a hard decision, but I vote for THE SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT!

    • PastryGoddess

      Motorcycle jacket with a peplum…say that three times fast

      • FibonacciSequins

        Literally shaking my head at that.

    • QHarp

      Really? Did you not expect that?

    • PastryGoddess

      TIM AND ANDRE is my pick

    • PastryGoddess

      All that shit Mitchell is talking and he barely has a look put together

      • myristica_fragrans

        the fabric is too hideous for him to be inspired.

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          He’s an artiste, you know.

          • BLauDGaspode

            From Florida. Land of high fashion.

    • Kimbolina

      No matter which suit he got, Mitchell would say he got the worst one.

    • myristica_fragrans

      girl, please.

    • alula_auburn

      peach mesh, vinyl, and fringe are high fashion now?

      • FibonacciSequins

        In Florida.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        Doesn’t your cat have a mind ray to tell you these things?

        • alula_auburn

          No, my cats, like Tim, are currently stoned out of their mind. Though I suspect Tim’s drug of choice is not catnip.

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            My cats are, variously, sleeping and staring out the window. Wise cats.

      • Stubenville

        If you’re a hooker.

        • EveEve

          Or you have had as many Santinos as I havehad

          • Stubenville

            Oh Hon – I think you should lie down for your own safety.

    • QHarp

      Tim’s all looking around like, ‘Who am I forgetting? Christ, I don’t know any of your names.’

    • Stubenville

      The Mitchell – Barbarella costume?

    • PastryGoddess

      Hernan has my hand itching to snatch a bitch bald. He is almost as annoying as Lanaya…or however your spell her stupid name

      • TDSE

        This just made me laugh. Hard.

    • NDC_IPCentral

      Hernan is Hopeless, and Clueless. Taste(less) issues, anyone?

      • BLauDGaspode

        Just waiting for Nina to question his taste level.

      • MilaXX

        he’s been taste issues from day 1

    • FibonacciSequins

      Hernan doesn’t understand vinyl doesn’t drape like fabric, yet he thinks Sandhya is threatened by him.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        The delusion is strong in this one.

    • Kimbolina

      Hernan shouldn’t even worry about the suit fabric, the stuff he picked from Mood is even uglier.

    • Qitkat

      Tim is on fire: it’s not draping… Except what gravity does for it.

    • LeelaST

      THE SANTINO (In hysterics with these choices – well done everyone!).

    • Call me Bee

      Hi, BKs! Just got here. What’s the challenge?
      And really–haven’t they inserted their sponsors into challenges from the beginning? The Banana Republic one that Wendy Pepper won. The Macy’s one that Team Angela, Laura and someone else won. The L’Oreal Hair Products Avant Garde challenge that Christian and Chris March won…..

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

        Hair and Clothes are at least fashion-related. Red Robin?

        (Yummmmm)

        • Call me Bee

          Ugh. Went to Red Robin once and it was…forgettable. Any great old spongey polyester leisure suits?

          • Pennymac

            Amanda’s.Its heavy polyester, but not technically “leisure”

      • MilaXX

        Make clothes from fugly suits and talk about how much they love Red Robin.

        • FibonacciSequins

          I thought there would be more of a Red Robin tie-in here. Maybe they’re going to meet at Red Robin every week just to work on their designs and eat bottomless fries.

          • BLauDGaspode

            I’d compete for that.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Making a high fashion outfit from a weird vintage men’s suit. Sandhya got to match suits to designers and now half of them think she’s sabotaging them.

        • PastryGoddess

          Which…of course she is. It’s a dame game!

      • Cheryl

        Design a soup.

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

      What’s the challenge? I’m not even going to bother tuning in until the runway.

      • oldscrumby

        Make a dress out of this leisure suit.

        • Cheryl

          Make a pretty dress out of this leisure suit.

          • oldscrumby

            They say it. I don’t believe it.

          • Stubenville

            Make a high fashion dress out of this leisure suit.

              Have we run the high fashion-fashion for stoners pun into the ground yet? Fuck it, where’s my necronomicon? Let’s raise it back up again.

      • EveEve

        Tear apart a men’s vintage suit and make a fabulous women’s wear high fashion anything with it. Plus extra fabric from Mood.

      • MilaXX

        here’s what you miss. “Bitch, bitch, bitch, Make it work! bitch, I’m concerned, bitch, times up!”
        Now you’re ready for the runway show.

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

          EXACTLY. Ain’t nobody got time for that. I’m just going to sit over here and read Saga while the boyf plays vidjamagames until showtime.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Okay, I think this beats Yoplait for awkward product placement. “Eat some fries while you sketch outfits that have nothing whatsoever to do with the challenge. Have fun!” On the other hand, I don’t think I’d want over-cooked hamburger dresses. But still, as a product tie-in, this is weird.

      I’m cautiously hopeful about Mitchell’s take. Hernan’s in trouble. Motorcycle jacket drama! Oh noez!

      What is the story the producers are telling with Sandhya? I’m confused by the narrative. Is she supposed to be the talented underdog who everyone hates for the talent? The stealth bitch? I don’t know these things.

      • PastryGoddess

        Sandhya is ALL OF THE THINGS!

    • TDSE

      Samantha = Kit

    • guest2visits

      THE SANTINO. But that was a tough choice.
      Don’t get the vintage suit connection with Red Robin – but I like the challenge.

    • katetastrophe

      It’s time to talk to the middle of the pack.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      It’s Guatemalan Peasant Soup.

      • blondie65

        fuck the shrimp!!!

      • decormaven

        “It’s sludge; I thought it’d make a nice change from coffee.”

    • Qitkat

      When did vintage and high fashion become mutually exclusive?

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        When they appear on Project Runway.

    • myristica_fragrans

      no.

    • Kimbolina

      Sandhya… whaat?

      • myristica_fragrans

        the stuff she brought to the audition was so interesting, so maybe she’ll actually go back to that.

    • QHarp

      Vagina ‘stache. Awesome idea, Sandhya.

      • Qitkat

        I was typing. What the hell did she actually say?

        • PastryGoddess

          she was going to stencil mustaches on her fabric panels

          • Qitkat

            O M G

        • QHarp

          As she was placing the stencil near the crotchal area of her dress.

      • BLauDGaspode

        Well this makes me excited to watch online tomorrow.

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      What Sandhya is doing has me so excited

    • myristica_fragrans

      if i’m not watching, i could swear that hernan was alexis mateo.

      • Stubenville

        Alexis was nowhere near as bitchy.

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

      THE TIM AND ANDRE mostly because it sounds like something I might actually order.
      But I kind of wish it was named “My Red Lobster Dinner with Andre.”

      • AnneElliot

        I would pay SO MUCH MONEY to be there in the next booth!!!

        I was torn between this drink and Dmitri’s but you have convinced me. my vote goes to TIM AND ANDRE.

    • MilaXX

      I like Sandhya’s colors.

      • FibonacciSequins

        I’m a little nervous about the patchwork combined with those colors. I like the colors too, though.

    • alula_auburn

      okay, fade just made me literally lol.

      • AnneElliot

        I’m starting to love fade. I hope he comes up with some great bon mots and becomes this season’s Dmitri.

    • unpious

      THE SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT. Never forget Moustache Baby. Never forget.

      • Pennymac

        Did we ever reach a consensus of whodunit?

    • Stubenville

      The Mitchell makes a Ziplock bag halter.

      • Call me Bee

        The judges will l-o-v-e it because it’s “edgy”.

      • alula_auburn

        Maybe it’s a stealth promotional piece–you could spill all kinds of ketchup and secret sauce on it and wipe it right off. A glam bib.

        • Qitkat

          Your cat is sending you a lot of snarky gems tonite! ;)

    • Kimbolina

      Jesus, Hernan just won’t stop bitching about the suit. It’s WHITE. It’s not like it’s some hideous print or something. I mean come on.

      • myristica_fragrans

        can’t you see that sandhya’s trying to destroy him?!? have a heart.

      • Adrianna Grężak

        I agree, I don’t understand why he was carrying on about it.

    • QHarp

      Chilling, maxing, relaxing, all cool.

    • FibonacciSequins

      “I feel so confident about this look.” Kiss of death.

      • marlie

        Any time someone’s like “I’m finished HOURS early, so I’m just going to chillax” you know they’re the next to go home. Though Kini’s isn’t bad.

    • alula_auburn

      Poor Hernan’s model.

      I’m guessing Kini might be “super vagina!” from the trailer last week, but it would be hilarious if it were Sandhya’s mustache! Although a mustache would be more like super villain vagina, I guess.

    • myristica_fragrans

      amanda’s is fugly.

    • myristica_fragrans

      adwoa needs to hand over those boots.

    • PastryGoddess

      I hate Andi McDowell…it’s just not fair

    • GeoDiva

      Too many good choices everyone! But I have to go for THE INSANE CROTCH.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      Does anyone really enjoy yogurt that much?

    • PastryGoddess

      I would just like to say: Bonchon Chicken is the ish..

    • PastryGoddess

      First it was migraines, now its bladders.

      Botox is not for EVERYTHING!!!!

      • QHarp

        Botox painted my living room for me.

      • Stubenville

        But you won’t have be able to pee for SIX MONTHS!

      • katetastrophe

        I’m most likely going to have it injected into my vocal cords. So there’s also that.

        • Cheryl

          Seriously?

          • katetastrophe

            I had thyroid surgery 6 months ago and the nerve that controls my vocal cords was paralyzed in the process and apparently botox injections help. I go back to the doctor Wednesday to discuss the options.

            • Swiftlytiltingplanet

              You’re just having all sorts of fun all over the place! I hope everything goes well.

            • katetastrophe

              Well the thyroid problem is what begat the weight gain.

            • Cheryl

              Zie gezunt (be well.)

            • katetastrophe

              Thank you.

              Ja, woll!

            • alula_auburn

              Good luck and be well.

            • katetastrophe

              Thank you.

      • NDC_IPCentral

        What it does is paralyze muscles temporarily, so it does have efficacy for bladder control.

        • PastryGoddess

          I know, I know. I’m just annoyed. My neurologists office is being overtaken by women with suspiciously tight faces who have all suddenly developed migraines.

          They’re slowly being weeded out but…argh

    • quiltrx

      THE SANTINO

    • Coco Chanel

      RED FUCKING ROBIN SRSLY!!!!!!!!

    • cmb92191

      INSANE CROTCH– I have almost all the items– and isn’t it just fun to say?

    • PastryGoddess

      Mitchell choked a bit when he said that

    • Qitkat

      How does Tim keep a straight face, with all the scripted nonsense he has to say?

      • Stubenville

        The money, Honey!

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        I thought we established that he’s drunk.

      • FibonacciSequins

        He’s a pro.

      • QHarp

        Booze.

      • MilaXX

        $$$$$$

        • Pennymac

          Tons and ton of it, I’m thinking. Enough to make him laugh like a hyena at “veggie burger”

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      Why do all these designers seem to hate each other or like to take jabs at each other? Coming off of a binge of watching the first 2 seasons of The Great British Sewing Bee, where all the contestants are best friends, it’s just so sad to see them so cut-throat. Or at least for the producers to manipulate the footage in such a way.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Can we see that in the US?

        • Slade Thunderdragon

          I just googled “Great British Sewing Bee Season 1 Episode 1″ and I found a site that let me watch the whole season. Same thing with Season 2. I wasn’t able to watch it via cable or on-demand or whatever though.

          • FibonacciSequins

            I have to check that out. Thanks!

            • Slade Thunderdragon

              I swear it’s such a breath of fresh air compared to all the suffocating, manufactured drama of this season.

            • Chinotto

              I just checked out the 1st episode of GBSB after reading your comment. Thank you! There’s binge-watching in my future. It’s lovely, and I like the sewing info they work in. PR never really talks about the mechanics of crafting the pieces; I would be happy with less Jr High drama & more “why we use darts.” ;)

      • Qitkat

        Love the GBSB!

      • Courtney

        They’re probably actively encouraged to, so as to make for greater drama. Which means more airtime, which means more exposure. Why else cast so many unbalanced people?

    • Stubenville

      As Tim says “high fashion challenge” the camera pans past purple and green striped sneakers on the Aldo wall. Oy,

    • Cele Deemer

      Tastefully short???

      • BuffaloBarbara

        Well, Heidi is a judge… maybe it’ll work. But I don’t think so.

    • QHarp

      Why did you do that the Hernan’s zipper, Sandhya?!?!?

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        Because sabotage!

    • BuffaloBarbara

      You know, they should all lie down at judge level to test their skirts. Let’s make that a thing from now on.

    • Courtney

      Did Hernan stab himself or his model?

      • PastryGoddess

        himself

      • FibonacciSequins

        That was blood? I assumed it was lipstick.

        • Courtney

          Closed caption said “I’m bleeding.”

          • FibonacciSequins

            Now I feel a little bad for him. I’m conflicted!

            • Swiftlytiltingplanet

              Stop that. It’s not like he opened an artery.

            • marlie

              I’ve had papercuts that have bled more than that.

    • EveEve

      In am going to faint – all that blood!

    • Cele Deemer

      Cutting the hem. So tacky.

    • alula_auburn

      OMG the fringe appears.

      • PastryGoddess

        Here’s some bleach for your eyes

        • alula_auburn

          Well, my cats probably would love it, from an attack perspective. . .

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            I have always kind of wanted a beaded doorway, but I can’t because cats. Don’t judge.

            • PastryGoddess

              I’m in the same boat. I love beaded doorways. My cats would also like them just as much

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          I hope you have enough for everybody!

      • FibonacciSequins

        She should have made her wedding dress just like it, but in white.

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          I can’t even…what?

          • FibonacciSequins

            Did you hear her say that? Then she threw her hands up in the air. Yes, a dress you threw together in one day from fabric you hate-that should have been your wedding dress, Amanda.

            • myristica_fragrans

              that shit better not win.

            • marlie

              Further evidence that she has NO taste, because who in the actual phuck would wear that dress, white or not?

            • Swiftlytiltingplanet

              I did hear her. but…what?

            • FibonacciSequins

              I know!

    • myristica_fragrans

      amanda’s obviously high.

    • MilaXX

      Is Amanda designing for Cher? In 1973?

      • Courtney

        Bite your tongue. Cher would never wear anything that shoddily made. :)

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      God Hernan please just go

    • myristica_fragrans

      kini’s looks good…so far.

      • Kimbolina

        It’s sort of weird that they haven’t really shown his up close all that much.

        • alula_auburn

          I think it might be the one that’s going to get called super vagina–the glimpse I saw did look kind of like it had a v-shaped visual going on, although I’ve seen worse.

    • Stubenville

      Amanda made a Ghillie suit

      • FibonacciSequins

        I had to google that. Ha!

      • Courtney

        Be wewwy wewwy quiet…I’m hunting designers.

      • PastryGoddess

        She camoflouged herself from good taste

    • Munchkn

      Long all-white fringes sounds like a vest I saw in a Circus magazine report on Woodstock back in ’69.

      • dash1211

        Robert Plant wore it.

        • Courtney

          He had so much presence onstage that he could make some really ridiculous stuff look GOOD.

      • FibonacciSequins

        I think I saw the same Circus report because I know exactly what you’re talking about.

    • NDC_IPCentral

      A short skirt on Heidi! News flash. Or flash of something….

    • dash1211

      Pozzzzzen

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

      I’m here now!

    • PastryGoddess

      I thought jackets had sleeves….

    • katetastrophe

      Is “edge” an asthetic?

      • Courtney

        Apparently sleek is.

    • Stubenville

      Char, that bow is awful.

      • alula_auburn

        I couldn’t even tell that’s what it was–it looked like something coming undone.

      • NDC_IPCentral

        Ms. Char from My Old Home Town is not impressing me so far in the competition, alas.

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

        Noooo! That bow is hilarious.

    • FibonacciSequins

      Of course Heidi’s smiling at that.

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

      I really like Fade’s.

    • Courtney

      I kind of like Fade’s.

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      I’m just really into fade.

    • Frank_821

      these are turning out better than I expected

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      A bow is a special added twist?

      • PastryGoddess

        It’s edgy ya know

    • GTrain

      LOVE Fade’s

    • QHarp

      I kind of love Umlaut’s dress.

      • katetastrophe

        I couldn’t tell if it was kind of fab or if his model was really working it. I think it was good though.

      • Pennymac

        Thought the same thing. Even the Umlaut part.

      • alyce1213

        I’ve liked everything he’s made. He really has a unique point of view and a gift for patterns.

        • AnneElliot

          I realized last night some of my favorite designers ever were amazing at mixing patterns — Mondo, Seth Aaron, and Uli. I think fade will rise to the top — he has a unique point of view, plus he’s kind of adorable.

    • Emma Zunker

      THE SANTINO.

    • Stubenville

      Fade’s has a weird bodice

      • PastryGoddess

        Chanel just sent looks like that down the runway

        • Frank_821

          yes but he had more proportions..lol

          • PastryGoddess

            and like 6 months to work on them :D

      • FibonacciSequins

        Yes, but it’s much better than I was expecting from Tim’s visit with him.

    • GTrain

      I still don’t remember Samantha’s backstory

    • Stubenville

      Bye Hernan!

    • Kimbolina

      Ok, Hernan’s must be the super vagina one.

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      Samantha is just skating by, but I really think that in the next few challenges she’s gonna be noticed.

    • QHarp

      Ohhhhhh, super-vagina.

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

      Every time I hear “High Fashion,” I keep thinking of Flight of the Conchords’ Fashion is Danger

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      And we have super vagina!

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      Hernan’s has a belly beak

    • NDC_IPCentral

      The Hernan V….. OH MY.

    • Courtney

      There are no words for Hernan’s.

    • myristica_fragrans

      fuck evil alexis. his dress and his attitude are stank.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      fuck you, Hernan

    • alula_auburn

      okay, that had better be super V!

      shut up, hernan! what the fuck. what a child.

      • Munchkn

        Did Sandya actually flip him off? Good for her, if she did!

        • BuffaloBarbara

          I will become a Sandhya fan if she did. I’m pretty close for “Never talk to me like that again.” Simple, direct, to the point. More people should say that in these situations.

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          I was pleased with “Don’t ever speak to me like that again!”

        • berkeleygirl

          Yes, she did!

    • myristica_fragrans

      i like this.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Sean’s? I like it too.

        • myristica_fragrans

          i meant mitchell’s. i was surprised.

    • oldscrumby

      That’s um…Let’s make a sandwich?

    • blondie65

      I really like Samantha’s….

    • QHarp

      Mitchell was inspired by the EZ wipe tablecloths at Red Robin.

    • Stubenville

      The Mitchel makes a Wonder Woman costume

      • alula_auburn

        The one my mom made for my brother (yes, my brother, yes Wonder Woman) out of dish towels c. 1980 was better.

        • Kimbolina

          Both your brother and mom sound amazing.

    • Courtney

      The idea of brown skirt was good. Terrible shoe choice.

    • QHarp

      The jodphur pants look that bad.

    • Logo Girl

      THE SANTINO. Hands down.

    • Kimbolina

      Ass crack zipper.

      • Susan Collier

        It’s interesting she made high-waisted pants AND invoked a plumber’s buttcrack at the same time.

    • Stubenville

      Exposed butt zipper – ugh

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

      When will designers realize jodphurs are NEVER the right choice on PR? The fit is almost always off.

      • Pennymac

        Atthe same time they realize that satin is a bad choice.

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

          HA! Fair.

    • PastryGoddess

      Did you see Heidi’s face?

      • alyce1213

        Oh yes, she lit up like a little girl as she imagined herself swirling onto the red carpet with that fringe. “I want that dress” was inevitable.

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

      I hate fringe like that

    • FibonacciSequins

      This is what the judges get for liking Amanda’s dress from the first week.

    • Stubenville

      Kini will be savaged.

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

        Aww I like his.

        • myristica_fragrans

          i hope not.

    • myristica_fragrans

      kini’s looks great

    • Courtney

      Kini’s looks like there’s some wonky construction in the skirt.

    • TDSE

      Sandhya’s is very Agatha Ruiz de la Prada on a budget and limited time. I like it.

      • Courtney

        It’s interesting, which is more than you can say for some.

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      SANDHYA’S IS GORGEOUS

    • myristica_fragrans

      i don’t know how i feel about sandhya’s.

    • MilaXX

      Mall clothes- , Nice – Char, I like -Fade, Meh – , tacky – Hernan, Cute, little young – Alexander, NOPE – Mitchell, okay- Sean, Like – Kristine, Safe – Amanda, Nice – Kini, Nice – Sandhya, Nice – Emily

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      Emily you’re high if you think plaid skirt over plaid pants is top worthy material.

    • marlie

      Korrina’s is pretty good. I like it.

      Char’s didn’t do anything for me, but I hope she doesn’t go home.
      I really like Fade’s. A lot.

      Samantha’s is a YAWN.
      Hernan’s looks cheap. And he’s a petty little whiny bitch.

      Alexander’s is also pretty cool.

      Mitchell’s is horrifying. It’s hideous, AND she’s about to show hooch.

      Sean’s isn’t all that exciting, but it reminds me a little of the 90s.

      Kristine’s is fine, but I wish she didn’t do the weird thing with the shoulders.

      Amanda’s is fugly. And you know Heidi is going to love it.

      Kini’s looks awesome!
      Sandhya’s is a little weird and costumey.

      Emily – meh.

    • MilaXX

      This is top and bottom

      • Stubenville

        Yup – I knew as soon as Hernan was included.

        • MilaXX

          He should be auf’d . However I’m surprised Fade wasn’t in the top.

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      SANDHYA’S IS NOT IN THE TOP?

    • GTrain

      I think Fade deserved top 3

    • NDC_IPCentral

      Here are the grill’em under the hot lights viictims…..

    • QHarp

      Kini or Amanda? Designers, are you dipping into Tim’s stash?

    • myristica_fragrans

      i’m really afraid amanda’s will win.

      • FibonacciSequins

        She has to be in the bottom three, don’t you think?

        • Courtney

          Not yet. They’ll build her up a little more before they crush her.

          • PastryGoddess

            Oh gosh….I hope not

            • myristica_fragrans

              you can never tell anymore. i mean, anya won.

          • FibonacciSequins

            I can’t even imagine, but then I hated her first fringe disaster and they liked it.

        • Stubenville

          Remember the script. The judges will kill them selves praising the fringe.

          • FibonacciSequins

            You’re probably right. I have to remember to not use logic during this show.

            • Stubenville

              I think you need your drink topped up.

          • Munchkn

            We sane people hate it, but Nina, Heidi, ZAc and whoever the hell the guest judge is aren’t sane and will love it.

      • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

        Me, too. Hold me.

    • Courtney

      I wish they’d give a little more attention to Fade – he’s doing some interesting looking stuff, but we never really get to see it.

      • Adrianna Grężak

        Unfortunately he’s a quiet personality =

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          He needs to start telling racy anecdotes from his days in the Love parades that Berlin used to host. That might get him some more air time

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

      I can’t believe they keep waving Fade through. He’s pretentious but his work seems really good.

    • marlie

      Wait – HOW IS MITCHELL SAFE??

      • GTrain

        short, shiny, Heidi

      • Kimbolina

        God, with the plastic bags.

        • Stubenville

          Perfect for taking home yummy Red Robin leftovers. [eyeroll]

      • oldscrumby

        Because there are definitely three worse.

    • alula_auburn

      Has fade been in the middle every time? I want to see him interact with Nina! (I missed the first episode).

    • Chaiaiai

      THE TIM AND ANDRE

    • TDSE

      They better not have Fetch in the top.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Huh. That wasn’t too much of a trainwreck. Given the judges so far, that fringey monstrosity will will. Kini’s should.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      And nowt they’ll be all mad that Sandyha didn’t get the “You’re lucky you have immunity because that sucked” treatment

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      Ok maybe Hernan will go home. It’s either him or Sean I’ll bet, and I think they’ll save Sean. Although it would be between Hernan and Amanda for me.

    • DLJoe

      Does anyone else harbor an irrational hatred for the Megan Mullaly – lite Red Robin spokeswoman?

      • PastryGoddess

        I don’t believe my hatred is irrational at all.

      • myristica_fragrans

        yes. her voice annoys me.

      • marlie

        Aw, she doesn’t bother me. Not like the Wendy’s redhead chick. SHE makes me ragey.

        • myristica_fragrans

          i like her!

          • marlie

            I have to change the channel when she comes on. I can’t take it.

        • DLJoe

          Oh Lord HER. Now I’m seething with rage lol

        • alyce1213

          I don’t mind the girl, but the campaign is idiotic. I almost feel bad for her.

      • MilaXX

        she’s become the “Hey it’s that gal!” of the commercial world.

      • alula_auburn

        I thought she was more like a poor man’s Sarah Vowell. But annoying either way.

      • alyce1213

        I’m not at irrational hate yet, just annoyed. Boo-ya!

    • QHarp

      Oh, Dance Moms. The thing I hate most about Dance Moms is myself when I watch it.

      • alyce1213

        If I come upon a show and the girls are dancing, I’m mesmerized by their talent, but then I think what they go through with that woman, and I hate myself for watching.

    • FibonacciSequins

      It’s amazing that Kini made that with time to spare.

      • katetastrophe

        He either has some mad sewing skills or he just got lucky this one time.

      • myristica_fragrans

        he wasn’t wasting time being a whiner.

    • Kimbolina

      Yay, they like Kini’s.

    • PastryGoddess

      Go Kini!!

    • marlie

      I’ve never heard of this Bethany chick.

      • PastryGoddess

        You don’t stalk YouTube.

      • Cheryl

        She has a Youtube channel and millions of followers.

    • FibonacciSequins

      Good for him, telling them he finished early.

    • QHarp

      I like Kini’s but I feel like the hip business is weird.

    • FibonacciSequins

      That organza business is crazy.

    • MilaXX

      oh I missed the bottom of the pants. I need to change my vote oh her look. that’s a bottom

      • myristica_fragrans

        same.

      • marlie

        OK, she’s totally getting the boot. That organza shiz is awful.

    • Kimbolina

      HAHA, Heidi saying to make it into a mini skirt!!

      • FibonacciSequins

        Of course.

      • katetastrophe

        Of course she is.

    • PastryGoddess

      OMG the bottom of her pants is Organza!!!! How did I not notice

      • Kimbolina

        In the quick runway shot I thought they were boots or something.

        • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

          Me, too. Why didn’t she just put a pair of knee high boots on her instead of that organza?

    • mom2ajs5

      I hate when guest judges say material instead of fabric!

    • katetastrophe

      Jesus, Heidi.

    • FibonacciSequins

      Oh, Heidi.

    • myristica_fragrans

      satan, i told you not to fuck with me today.

    • PastryGoddess

      Passing the crack pipe again judges?

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Heidi is making me cry!

      • FibonacciSequins

        She must have been nipping out of Tim’s flask.

    • marlie

      WHAT IS HEIDI SMOKING?

      • Stubenville

        Catnip.

    • Kimbolina

      Well fuck all that.

    • katetastrophe

      I’m horrified seeing it now.

      • FibonacciSequins

        It’s awful!

    • Cele Deemer

      Fringe does NOT rule

    • Courtney

      And we have the winner.

      • PastryGoddess

        I will cry

      • myristica_fragrans

        well, we know she’s here for another week at least.

    • myristica_fragrans

      flattering?!? gtfo.

      • marlie

        I… I don’t know what I’m hearing. This is some crazy-ass bizarro world.

    • katetastrophe

      The judges are totally trolling us, right?

    • Stubenville

      Bwahaha! The fringe is so stunning! Follow the script, judges!

    • QHarp

      This may be the beer talking, but I’d like that dress if it didn’t have that god awful fringe.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        It’s the beer. Really. It is.

      • PastryGoddess

        maybe you should switch to hooch. That beer is not your friend

      • GTrain

        me too and it pains me to say so because i loathe Amanda

    • FibonacciSequins

      I’m sorry, but Sean’s is so much better than Amanda’s.

    • NDC_IPCentral

      Oh good grief, did they tell the judges they wouldn’t get their paychecks unless they fell all over themselves to praise Amanda?

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

        They threatened to withhold the sweet sweet crack.

    • alula_auburn

      the fringe prais is BS, but Posen is right on with orthopedic about Sean’s–it looks like the stuff when my wrist brace is coming apart.

    • GTrain

      Now Sean’s in trouble because Heidi’s feewings are hurted

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      I’m praying that I’m high, too.

    • BlairBear

      Nina’s face as she judged Amanda’s was priceless , I love the hair and the makeup was about all she could bring herself to say

      • alula_auburn

        I thought the same thing! Although “the placement of the fringe”? The only place she didn’t stick it was growing like hair out of the bust.

        • BlairBear

          Haha but she said the placement of the fringe was important not that it was placed well. Fulfilling her contract while making her true feelings known . I hope for ninacaps

          • alula_auburn

            ooh, good call.

            • BlairBear

              My love of Nina requires that I take what she says in a shady way

      • Kimbolina

        Earlier during the show she tweeted that fringe was a trend. I feel like she was trying to convince us (and herself?) that Amanda’s wasn’t so bad. Dear god, I hope that’s not a sign that Amanda wins and she’s starting preemptive damage control…

        • BlairBear

          It’s true it is but not a trend I can bring myself to sign up for also that fringe was ovehwhelming and the dress underneath was fug. It felt very wretchen to me

    • NDC_IPCentral

      Malicious judge game with Alexander. That was mean….. geeze, Heidi, Nina, Zac….

      • Stubenville

        Yup, they’re extra nasty this season.

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      Alexander’s is so middle-of-the-road. I hate redemption storylines.

      • Courtney

        That’s totally Amanda’s this week, too.

    • PastryGoddess

      So Sean and Amanda are up there with Kini. Da Fuq

    • Kimbolina

      I am hating this guest judge.

      • PastryGoddess

        get in line

      • GTrain

        But she’s a “YouTube sensation”!! *eyeroll*

        • marlie

          Bieber was a YouTube sensation, and we see what hell we’re in with that one now.

    • myristica_fragrans

      who cares what this girl thinks?

    • marlie

      Blogger girl is annoying as hell.

    • alula_auburn

      Hernan’s model looks so uncomfortable, and a little embarrassed for him.

    • MilaXX

      Quick go to the Fug gals site. I swear Kim K is wearing and outfit similar to what Sean made.

      • marlie

        GAWD.

      • PastryGoddess

        Oh dear….

      • Pennymac

        Youre right! But I had a delay cause of those Beckham pics. Then I scrolled down again and saw it. And back up to Becks……

    • katetastrophe

      Maybe she IS a vagina super hero.

      • myristica_fragrans

        hail to the v.

        • NDC_IPCentral

          My undergraduate Alma Mater’s fight song is “Hail to the Victors,” but we Wolverines aren’t that kind o; V.

      • alula_auburn

        I don’t know about super hero but she should get a medal for putting up with Hernan.

        eta: a medal for the model! typo fail.

    • Cele Deemer

      Hernan must go

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Did you know that Hernan had the worst suit of them all?! Because Sandyha hates him so much!

      • QHarp

        Damn her!

        • Frank_821

          clearly a grudge holder who out to show how empowered she truly is

      • nosniveling

        it’s ’cause she’s afraid of his super competition :)
        not.

      • Stubenville

        Yea, she took the really good yellow and purple one. That bitch.

    • QHarp

      Oh man, if Heidi tells you it’s to tacky to wear, you done screwed up.

    • Courtney

      Zing! Ok, Heidi, I laughed at that one.

    • oldscrumby

      Hopefully Hernan’s lowkey whining will get him offed. If he’d throw a tantrum they would have kept him for the drama.

      • katetastrophe

        He’s taking up where Angela left off.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      Every vagina is a Super Vagina.

      • katetastrophe

        Preach!

    • alula_auburn

      LOL at Hernan claiming they loved the back.

      • FibonacciSequins

        That was pretty funny.

      • PastryGoddess

        Did you notice the overwhelming silence in the room

    • myristica_fragrans

      i think amanda will win, kini will be safe and kristine will go. sean’s backtalk will read ass “passion”

      • QHarp

        I think it’s a typo, but now I’ll never be able to look at Sean again without think of his ass passion. :)

        • myristica_fragrans

          lol. i guess that’s the best kind to have.

        • Pennymac

          can we make that his PR nickname?

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            If he’s still here!

            • myristica_fragrans

              evil alexis is leaving. ass passion will be back for another week!

    • Heather

      I’m pretty sure The Insane Crotch would actually taste pretty damned good, but I have to go with THE SANTINO. That description is a thing of beauty.

    • PastryGoddess

      If they pick Christine, I think Tim will save her.

      • NDC_IPCentral

        That’s just what I was thinking with the shot of Tim’s furrowed brow as the judges cut Cristina to shreds.

    • Stubenville

      Amanda or Sean (?) for the win, bandages or Hernan for the auf.

    • alula_auburn

      hahahaha they “get” to design Red Robin swag? Was that always in the prize explanation and I totally blocked it before?

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        Yes.

        • alula_auburn

          Clearly my brain knows how to edit!

    • GTrain

      I don’t think Sean’s is that tragic

      • Cheryl

        I’m very concerned (frowny face).

      • Gatto Nero

        Remember Christopher Palu’s deconstructed dresses, which the judges swooned over?
        (Heidi: “It’s not our first day.” Ouch.)

    • marlie

      Zac, you don’t get to say “I’m very concerned.” That’s Tim’s line!

      • alula_auburn

        It’s like watching a toddler try to walk in Mommy’s high heels. Except not adorable.

    • alula_auburn

      I love that they are pointing out Hernan’s lies about his fabric being the worst ever.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        That was probably my favorite judge moment for many episodes — “Does he know we’re going to look?” Lying on the runway — in a way that can be easily tested — OUT.

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      Kini win Hernan out

      • PastryGoddess

        I hope so

    • GoryDetails

      THE SANTINO

      …because it’s the one that made me laugh the loudest – but I loved them all. Wonderfully inventive! (The Tim and Andre is probably the only one I’d actually taste…)

      As for tonight’s episode – there does seem to be some crack being smoked, judge-wise, but what else is new? {grin}

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Good on the judges for checking Hernan’s disintegrating fabric! I hope they call him out.

    • marlie

      Kini really deserves this win. Hands down.

      • myristica_fragrans

        which means he won’t get it.

        • Stubenville

          BINGO.

          • Kimbolina

            As soon as Zac Posen said “This is a winning design” I thought, well, guess it’s not winning now!

        • BuffaloBarbara

          Precisely. Though I am foolish enough to hope. Maybe someone wants to go to Hawaii for the fashion week home visits.

    • Qitkat

      Please let Kini win over Amanda.

      • mom2ajs5

        Let’s all pray to Super Vagina that Kini wins :-)

        • katetastrophe

          **snorts**

        • ddfrog

          Best comment all day.

          • mom2ajs5

            Awww, thanks!

    • FibonacciSequins

      Stunning? Harrrumph

    • katetastrophe

      Stunningly fug

    • Courtney

      You can see them talking themselves into it, like good little minions.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Guys! She MADE the fringe!

      • Stubenville

        HAND CUT FRINGE!

        • Pennymac

          Practically Avant Garde!

          • katetastrophe

            Maybe Pintrest Garde.

        • Winter_White

          Whoa…we have not seen the likes of this since Gretchen HAND-CUT fringe into CHEVRONS!! (shiver of excitement)

    • oldscrumby

      AND YOU HAVEN’T SEEN FRINGE BEFORE!!!!

    • katetastrophe

      Nina! Stop.

    • marlie

      Honestly, if Amanda HADN’T added the fringe, that would have been a fine “safe” dress. With the fringe, it’s hideous.

      • FibonacciSequins

        The application of the fringe looks sloppy and they didn’t even mention it.

        • Kimbolina

          It wasn’t in the script.

      • Shyla

        I hated Amanda’s dress. And I’m really sick of Amanda in general.

    • PastryGoddess

      I just cannot believe they are praising Amanda to the high heavens

      • myristica_fragrans

        she must have serious dirt on them.

        • PastryGoddess

          There is a picture involving a goat…I’m sure

      • Pennymac

        Its making me sick

    • myristica_fragrans

      nina, please!!!!

    • FibonacciSequins

      You saw Amanda’s outfit two weeks ago!

    • Kimbolina

      WTF Nina. No one’s seen ANY of this stuff made out of old men’s suits.

      • PastryGoddess

        She has to stay on script somehow

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      go Zac!

      • marlie

        Zac as the voice of reason. Color me shocked.

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      AMANDAS DRESS IS AN ITERATION OF LIKE 5 THINGS SHE DESIGNED IN HER ORIGINAL SEASON

    • alula_auburn

      I think maybe the cat mind rays have gotten warped because Amanda’s dress looks like a million pieces of string to bat.

      • Stubenville

        Another cat toy dress.

        • Qitkat

          Amanda’s specialty.

    • Munchkn

      Amanda’s looks like something I would have made from the book I used to have about making your own clothes if you couldn’t sew.

    • Judy_J

      THE INSANE CROTCH. Because it I something I might actually drink.

    • katetastrophe

      Oh my goddess, those fries.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      Does anyone know how I can watch season 2 of The GBSB in the US? I saw season 1 and loved, loved, loved it.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        Someone found it down thread.

        • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

          I can’t find it now and I’m getting a headache from scrolling.

          • oldscrumby

            It was up on youtube for a while. If not there than a google search would pull up a torrent or streaming site.

            • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

              That was how I found season one. But season 2 seems to be hiding.

            • FibonacciSequins

              Here is what Slade Thunderson said downthread:

              “I just googled “Great British Sewing Bee Season 1 Episode 1″ and I found a site that let me watch the whole season. Same thing with Season 2. I wasn’t able to watch it via cable or on-demand or whatever though.”

            • Chinotto

              Try the Daily Motion site

            • Chinotto

              I just found S1E1 on Daily Motion. I love this! Instead of the endless bitchy backstabbing, GBSB tells me about darts & actual sewing info trivia. Cool.

            • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

              That’s where I found season 1. Season 2, I keep ending up on these websites that open up dozens of other windows when I try to watch it or want me to sign up for a “free” trial to the service.

              #firstworldproblems

    • FibonacciSequins

      For the price of a fast food meal? Yes, I’ll take the mattress combo.

      • Stubenville

        A good mattress costs serious bucks.

        • FibonacciSequins

          It’s not a good ad campaign when it just makes you think about how expensive the product is.

    • MilaXX

      Amanda’s looks like a tacky Roberto Cavalli knockoff.

      • BlairBear

        I feel like Roberto’s fabric would be less ugly ? to me it looked like a crappy costume designer doing a flapper look

      • Stubenville

        “Tacky Cavalli” is redundant.

        • BlairBear

          I mean going the Cavalli or Versace route is probably not bad plan to win over Heidi

          • Gatto Nero

            I knew it when I saw Heidi grinning as it came down the runway.
            Although she also beamed when she saw Mitchell’s (short, tight, and shiny) space frock.

        • MilaXX

          but also true.

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      LOL

    • FibonacciSequins

      I CALL SHENANIGANS, JUDGES.

    • Stubenville

      Quel surprise.

    • myristica_fragrans

      and satan refuses to stop.

    • Courtney

      “I kind of wasn’t expecting that.” What disingenuous bull.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      UUUUUGGGGGHHHHH!

    • Kimbolina

      HAHHH.

    • Munchkn

      WHAT THE FUCK!?? I can’t believe that Amanda won!

    • katetastrophe

      ???????????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • NDC_IPCentral

      Oh, for the love of manipulation……

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Nooooooooooooooooo! And SHUT UP!

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

      No nono

    • PastryGoddess

      Kini was ROBBED!!

      • katetastrophe

        Yeah, he was.

      • marlie

        And if he ends up going home next week, I’ll be furious.

      • ddfrog

        Big time. So unfair. It’s like the producers were like, c’mon our story says Amanda. Zac looked pained by having to say Amanda’s was good.

        • BLauDGaspode

          Even Nina was like, “Well, I like how you have the fringe placed…” That was the only praise I heard from her I think, but she was falling over for Kini’s.

    • FibonacciSequins

      She is SO insincere.

    • Call me Bee

      I honestly cannot believe the way the judges fell over themselves to praise that awful dress that Amanda made. What the hell are they drinking??!?! I just…..Don’t. Get. It.

        • oldscrumby

          Too mild. What was that one someone suggested that had coke on the rim and was served flaming?

          • alyce1213

            I submiited a flaming Drama Queen, but not rum – brandy.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        They were drinking the dregs of their souls, served in a smooth base of …..I’m too appalled to think.

      • BLauDGaspode

        Waiting for Heidi to actually wear that dress.

    • alula_auburn

      Oh, shut up with the fake modesty, Amanda.

      • myristica_fragrans

        i’m still annoyed that she’s back in the first place.

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          It kind of makes me wish they’d brought angry Ken back.

    • marlie

      Amanda could have sent her model down the runway naked, and they would have given her the win. Such bullshit.

    • Qitkat

      @alula_auburn ‘s cat must be thrilled!

      • alula_auburn

        Even in a ‘nip haze she suspects shenanigans.

        • Qitkat

          One of the things I miss most about not having a kitty any longer is the insanity with really quality catnip.

    • GTrain

      I love how Kini’s smiling but not saying congrats

      • FibonacciSequins

        He knows he deserved that win as much as we do.

      • Kimbolina

        Cause he knows he was robbed.

    • mom2ajs5

      Is Heidi sleeping with her Maroon 5 brother??

    • BlairBear

      I guess if they bring her back they need to let her win once? I hope to hell she wont go all the way.

      • Cheryl

        Didn’t she win once before?

        • Courtney

          Yes. She had immunity last week.

        • BlairBear

          yeah I guess she did

        • oldscrumby

          Yep, for another fringe-tastic outfit in the unusual materials challenge.

    • dash1211

      OK, I give up.

    • Courtney

      Well that’s just, at least.

    • Pennymac

      Well-at least I agree with the auf.

    • PastryGoddess

      yessssss evil Alexis is gone! woo hoo

    • Stubenville

      I’m surprised they didn’t keep Hernan for the D R A M A !

      • FibonacciSequins

        Maybe they felt he’s too similar to the characters they already have.

      • BLauDGaspode

        I think they have a few snarky, delusional kids around that they can afford to weed them out.

    • Alfred Cox

      At least the right person went.

    • QHarp

      Phew, Ass Passion lives to fight another day.

    • housefulofboys

      At least one redeeming moment tonight, Hernan is gone!!

    • marlie

      At least they sent the right person home. Mostly because of his attitude.

      • EveEve

        Mostly because that thing was butt ugly

        • marlie

          His was awful, there’s no denying that. But I just thought his attitude was so nasty that it was time for him to go regardless.

    • NDC_IPCentral

      Now, will Hernan hurl invective at Sandhya? Well, no, he dissed the judges. He says they have no talent. Takes one to know one……

    • myristica_fragrans

      ass passion up, evil alexis down.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Thank gods there is some small justice in the world!

    • alula_auburn

      Ahah, I love when Tim clearly is glad to get rid of someone. Well, it had to be someone!

    • GTrain

      The fact he said “Sean’s was the worst” with a straight face…

    • FibonacciSequins

      He’s right and he’s wrong.

    • PastryGoddess

      STFU Hernan

    • Stubenville

      Delusional to the end, Hernan.

    • myristica_fragrans

      well, he’s not lying about everything.

        Half right.

    • QHarp

      HAHAHAHAHA, delusional bitch!

    • alula_auburn

      Is Heidi going to flash them on the runway next week?

    • FibonacciSequins

      Oh good. Heidi is so tough in the workroom.

    • housefulofboys

      “If it was really about talent, I wouldn’t have gone home.” And, Hernan confirms everything we already hated about him. Don’t let the door hit you…

      • Shyla

        I wasn’t sure I heard that right. What an ass.

      • Adrianna Grężak

        Russian Blue hair girl that he worked with had the same attitude, and neither of them produced anything interesting. At least Angela – who showed way more taste and design direction in her work – left gracefully

    • Qitkat

      Gee they’ve already dispensed with the odd after show.

      • myristica_fragrans

        i’ll never know why lifetime was trying to make amanda de cadenet happen here.

      • Gatto Nero

        Lifetime has taste?

    • Pennymac

      If it wasn’t for you Kittens, I wouldn’t watch this dreck. The comment part is fun. But the judging is BEYOND horrendous.

      • marlie

        I think that’s the only reason why any of us still watch.

        • Qitkat

          Sing it sister!

      • Qitkat

        And every year we think it’s worse than the year before. At this rate we are just waiting for: Design a new look for Satan, he is getting too much bad press lately:(

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          I’d watch the hell out of that!

          • Qitkat

            :)
            If some production assistant just read this blog regularly, they would have enough new show ideas to last them the rest of their career, and then some.

            • BLauDGaspode

              Quick! We need to sneak a BK onto the set as a PA.

      • Adrianna Grężak

        I stopped watching at Season 11 but so far Season 13 is more palatable than what we’ve seen a while. (Compared to 12, which I binged watched one weekend and couldn’t believe the amount of emotional instability this show was taking advantage of.) But overall I don’t think the level of talent is there – I think PR ran out of people to cast. I think the show lost a lot of credibility the past few years – the up and coming designers who take their craft seriously don’t want to be associated with a calculated reality show. People like Diane von Furstenberg have long stopped being guest judges.

    • Munchkn

      I could not watch a repeat of that travesty. I’m watching the end of The Kid on TCM.

      • Chinotto

        Now I am, too! Thx for the heads-up.

        • Munchkn

          I rather wish I’d never changed the station. I could have watched A Dog’s Life and caught all of The Kid instead of watching PR.

          edited for riffle

          • Chinotto

            I watched the docu on Chaplin’s early films; it was on right before PR — oh, and on again now, I think.

    • katetastrophe

      I wonder what happened to that awful show that followed that I immediately switched off after PR?

    • Shyla

      THE TIM AND ANDRE. Everything goes better with a cheddar bay biscuit.

    • SewingSiren

      Well I agree with the Auf’ but I think Kini should have won.

      • katetastrophe

        Agreed.

      • MilaXX

        Most definitely but they gotta stoke that fan fav story line.

        • myristica_fragrans

          who’s fave was she?

          • MilaXX

            No one’s really. She was the lessor of evils between Ken and Alexander to return. The show just called the fan favs.

            • Swiftlytiltingplanet

              They count? What kind of fuckery is this?

            • Qitkat

              I know. Don’t want to imagine not being a BK.

      • Qitkat

        But then the judging would actually make sense. We can’t have that.

      • Gatto Nero

        My laugh of the night.

    • uprightcitizen

      I have to vote for THE SUEDE. Partly because no one else is, and partly because I had forgotten about that referring to himself in the third person nonsense. If a drink includes dirty water as an ingredient, does it matter how dirty … or what it’s dirty with?

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      I’m watching the beginning of the episode repeat (I’m a glutton for punishment), and I just noticed that the green t-shirt with the eye that Amanda is wearing on the first day has FRINGE! It’s foreshadowing!

      • ddfrog

        Watching too. I didn’t catch how she was designing a sleek red carpet dress. Ha.

        • Swiftlytiltingplanet

          Fringe is the new sleek? And we’re just too pedestrian to understand?

      • BLauDGaspode

        I noticed it too. Girl loves fringe like no other.

    • NDC_IPCentral

      I have a new David Baldacci novel from the library (“The Target,” a Will Robie/Jessica Reel thriller) that is calling to me, BKs. IT is guaranteed not to disappoint, unlike the balderdash we saw on the tube tonight. Sleep well, friends.

      • Qitkat

        Oh I like a lot of his. Enjoy:)

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        I skipped PR to commune with Alain Delon for one more Thursday night. Judging from the comments, I made a good choice

        • NDC_IPCentral

          Class tells, B3. I am at the point where I agree with Qitkat – if it weren’t for the BKs and our community of amused (and outraged) commenters, I’d not bother with the show.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Yes, the BK’s and TLo keep me engaged as much as I am with PR now.

      I went to Rifftrax Live tonight, so I missed this train wreck of a show. I’ll check out pics tomorrow to see if it looks worth watching.

      Oh, and I vote for THE SANTINO.

      • Chinotto

        Love your MST3K avatar!

      • GoryDetails

        A new Rifftrax Live??? I’m so glad you mentioned it – I hadn’t seen they were doing another one. (I did like the Godzilla movie but it should “Riff” very well indeed; I’m going to see the second showing on Tuesday.)

        • Angela_the_Librarian

          It was absolutely hilarious. The only downside is that they didn’t have time to riff a short. Anaconda is coming up in October!

    • Delmekia Flannigan

      Project Runway is becoming so cracktastic that I fear TLo will stop blogging the show and thus ruin my only remaining interest. Amanda (almost type Gretchen here) for the win really. If that HAD to be your top three than Kini should have won. That skirt was beautiful. I may not have like or understood all of Sandyha’s designs but she seems to be the only one working on a fashion level and constantly putting out pieces of clothing that invoke thought and discussion.

      • ShaoLinKitten

        And didn’t she win with some ridiculous fringe nonsense on her first win? Ugh. Kini was robbed.

        • BLauDGaspode

          Yes. They sure love her fringe. I fear what this means for the rest of the season, and fashion in general.

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            I weep for humanity.

            • BLauDGaspode

              I shall shred up some tissues to catch your tears.

    • Missy

      You guys. Being pregnant during this season of PR is SO HARD. I need a drink, and how.

    • Bad Idea Jeans

      THE SANTINO, for sure. This is certainly the cocktail equivalent of a Santino creation.

    • DeTrop

      Sandhya’s revenge. So long Hernan, so long. Amanda is the winner because that was a ‘high fashion’(Tim’s instructions) design extraordinaire. HaHa. Speaking of ‘high fashion’ I thought Alexander did that best. Why the producers would come up with a ‘high fashion’ episode using men’s suits is beyond me. The designers did pretty well with the exception of Sean, Hernan and imo Sandhya. I was surprised to see Kristine on the bottom but I should know better by now not to be surprised by PR’s judging.

    • KT

      Okay so I just got home from a work drink and am now starting to watch the episode, and I’m a bit buzzed (though not buzzed enough). This challenge is so fucking stupid!!! What does Red Robin have to do with anything?! Are these dumb suits somehow related to Red Robin in any way? Are they former uniforms of Red Robin waiters or something? Or is the connection literally as thin as “something as classic as a hamburger” which apparently means corduroy suits??? I don’t get it. “We’ll even provide you with some bottomless fries to get you going” what?!?!!?!?! How the fuck do bottomless fries get the creative juices flowing and what does this have to do with fashion at all??? Not that I don’t love fries, I just… this is so beyond stupid. This show will whore itself to anyone! Project PROSTITUTE

      • Gatto Nero

        There was no connection. The product whoring has reached a new level.

      • hoopoeofhope

        Perhaps they meant ‘bottomless chaps’?

    • KT

      I’m still not done with the episode yet, but Hernan could not possibly go home soon enough!!!! First of all, he’s not talented at all and has truly awful taste. Second of all, the way that he’s using Sandhya as a scapegoat is such transparent bullshit, and he’s done this in two challenges now. When are you going to take responsibility for your own shitty designs, dude? Third of all, he is such a raging narcissist to constantly paint himself as a victim of Sandhya’s “evil plan” – as if all she could possibly think about was HIM. You’re not the only person who got a crappy suit, asshole, and no one else is becoming all conspiratorial and shit. Stop pointing fingers and get over yourself.

      Sandhya is clearly a strong, smart woman, but I have even more respect for her for standing up for herself to Hernan when he made the TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE move of calling her a bitch during the runway show. That’s right girl, he CAN’T ever speak to you like that again, and how dare he think that that was ever acceptable in any way. If you can’t tell, I’m furious with that disgusting mother fucker right now. Pure trash.

    • KT

      Yayyyy Hernan is going home!!!! I’m so excited! Tim doesn’t seem even remotely sorry to see him go. Understandable.

    • SewingSiren

      A. Does anybody think they let Sandhya pick the suits everyone got just to make the others hate her more?
      B. Everyone thought she deliberately picked the worst suit for them.
      C. I loved when Sandhya heard Hernan bitching and she says “Do you see the one I have myself? Did I give myself Gucci?”

      • Stubenville

        I adored her response. Most people would have chosen the one she gave to Kini for themselves.

    • Peeve

      Just an aside, Uncles, but you missed a few drinks that had more votes last week than several you included here. If there were no prize, I wouldn’t care, but seeing as I’d love a signed copy of your book, I’m a little verklempt. They are: The Camel Toe (91 votes), The Unconventional Material Martini (102 votes-second highest next to The Santino), and the Anya (51 votes-mine, of course, which is why I looked in the first place!). The drinks in the competition ranged from 20 to 161 votes, so these definitely belonged with them. I know mine as no real shot, but the first two do!

      I’m voting for my drink – THE INSANE CROTCH – because it’s going to lose to Santino anyway, who will never be forgiven for that heinous jumpsuit crime against humanity, and I didn’t realize I should have added a funny paragraph maybe referencing The Duchess or stating the fact that he always reminded me of a gigantic orange toe, but I didn’t and water under the bridge an all that but maybe I could use a drink right now and just thing how funny it would be to say, “I would like an Insane Crotch” or “I have an Insane Crotch” or “Grab me an Insane Crotch, wouldja?” or, well, you get the idea.
      Crap-in-a-hat; it’s been a looooong week.

      No question about it.

      THE TIM AND ANDRE. I think I could drink it during an episode and not get liver failure. Otherwise, I would have voted for the Santino.

      THE TIM AND ANDRE — because the name is hilarious and it might actually be drinkable.

      I’m voting for THE SUEDE, but they are all hilarious!
      I’m really just finding out I was nominated because I wasn’t able to Lounge it up with everyone this week. So honored that this witty, hilarious, smart group of folks liked my submission. Y’all are just the best of the best. I’m clearly not winning this race, but just being included officially made my week.

      THE INSANE CROTCH. bc I haven’t seen any of those yet this season, and I miss hating them.

      OT: Is there even one truly talented designer this season? Really?
