    I'm really surprised more fans don't have an issue with Kate's presence this season. It seems like such an unfair advantage to have gone through the worst of it before and get a second chance at it. She's had the benefit to learn what skills would be required, go home and study up on them and then come back. It seems so unfair to the other designers.

    Why is Miranda wearing her Army uniform on the show? She's no longer in the military so it seems that it would only be a form of emotional blackmail. Extortion even. Judges don't want to be seen eliminating a member of the armed services after all.

    I've already chosen my top three and think Braden may win the whole thing. He's got all the ingredients that the judges just love AND he's seemingly a great designer as well. Unfortunately I don't see a final without Kate. She's getting a big time redemption edit. Alexander gets way too much camera time to not be one of the ones who make it to the end. I think they'll end up being the final three designers.

    Could she be referring to "PR Teams"?
    Some thought that concept unsuccessful, and something that shouldn't have been done.

    lol falling dance, gretchen should have never happened. if i could go back in time like the terminator and prevent it, i would

    but i meant the team challenge season, it's like the season of dallas where bobby ewing was dead. it just didnt work and it wasnt mentioned again.

    Ah! Gotcha. It ended up being one of my favorite seasons but I understand I'm in the minority with that opinion. Too many designers floated through because they were the worst designers on the best teams, but overall the right people ended up being eliminated and the right people made it to the final so it was ok by me.

    I was so focused on the last part of this post that I forgot to comment on the first part. The whole thing feels rigged for Kate. The two designers she was up against were never fan favorites and I only barely remember them. Kate on the other hand was fresh in the fans minds and she had all these folks online decrying her elimination for the prom dress challenge. Of course she's going to win the online vote. And I will be SHOCKED if she doesn't make it to the final runway. Makes me wonder what she has on the producers.

    Definitely winning crappy prizes for material. Plastic pelts and shiny rubber isn't high end... unless you're a "furry." :p

    Miranda sure didn't learn teamwork during her time in the Army.

    You'd think after being in the army she'd handle the pressure a little bit better.

    I would like to give these designers some gorgeous fabric and enough time to make something I want to look at.

    The red sombrero dress is quite something.

    I have no taste. I don't think Miranda and Tim's look is that bad. I thought others were worse. :shuffle:

    i think the one by the team with the deaf contestant is worse. but unicorn tim has been at the bottom 2x already. overall, i think he is weaker plus i am really tired of him.

    I think Sandro and his partner are lucky two others were worse.

    Unicorns went extinct because of Timothy. What a pretentious tool. Titanic and lifeboats and burning parachutes, it was just bizarre (as Heidi would say). I think Gandhi and Buddha would have issues with that freak.

    Sandro can also leave my screen. Misogynistic tacky drama loving jerk.

    I would have picked the "Shark Week" dress FTW. It looked like Domo's hot date. :lol:

    Kate's really got an eye on redeeming her season's edit. Glad Helen got the win.

    Sandro and Miranda can both leave my screen. She came off worse than unicorn-boy. What a petulant beeyotch. You'd think that months of "drop and give me twenty" would beat that out of someone, but no.
