Despite the fact that I am all the way in Paris, France I was still able to watch last night’s episode of Project Runway since David’s DVR/cable box is properly hooked up to the Slingbox which allows us to stream things recorded on his box online. The challenge in last night’s ep took the designers out of the sewing workroom and onto the streets of New York City in search of inspiration:
Some of the contestants rose to the challenge, some of them failed miserably and Suede annoyed the HELL out of me, yet again. After the jump, find out who was in & who was out …
Okay … it must be said, Trent hates Suede. I really thought that his little third person speak would either stop or fade into the background noise but no … it hasn’t, in either case. I can’t even take him seriously when every sentence out of his mouth is “Suede this …” or “Suede that …” I keep feeling the unnatural urge to reach into the screen and slap him — UGH!
Okay … how cute was it when we saw Daniel talking about how much he missed Wesley? We now know that the two of them hooked up on the show and are still dating to this day so at the time that he made that confession, they couple must’ve just gotten together and then were ripped apart (Wesley got axed after only the second challenge). It’s a shame that we won’t be able to see the two of them all coupley for the rest of the season. And, uh, can someone please fill me in on what exactly is up with Blayne? Either all that tanning has fried his brain or he’s just a freak. Seriously, he scares me. The fact that his designs aren’t the worst is also pretty creepy. I didn’t hate his dress but the time is going to come where his brand of avant gardeism is going to get him cut from the show. I’m really glad that Kenley won this challenge … even tho I would’ve given her the win last week, it’s nice that she finally got the recognition. That being said, I really liked Leanne’s dress better this week … she put a lot of work into it and the outfit looked exactly like her photo (much like season one winner Jay McCarroll’s design based on the Chrysler Building did). I felt bad for Emily … sure her dress was fug and everyone but her seemed to know it (Tim even warned her!) but I liked her … she seemed like a sweet girl. Jennifer got so lucky … her time is running out. She needs to step it up or she is a goner. I wasn’t all that impressed with Sandra Bernhard’s guest judging … her appearance on the show didn’t make all that much sense and she didn’t really offer much. She did try to outdo Nina Garcia in her role of skewering the designers but she didn’t really do it for me. Nina rules and she cannot be touched, duplicated or replaced. Thus far the challenges have been cute … I want them to amp it up a bit. I kinda want more of everything … but Suede, of course ;)
