Same here. Snakeskin was awful.
IMHO, Josh could at least back up his bitchy, annoying, and unnecessary bravado with excellent sewing skills.
Gunnar's stuff last night looked rather 1/2-assed, sloppy, and didn't reflect his claims of ability.
I'm sure Long Island Gay will eventually annoy the pooh out of me (the ones I initially like always do!), but he seems to dwell in the realm of reality a bit more than his emaciated archrival.
Gunnar's already a "legend in his own mind".
He won't last.
I thought Gunnar and Chris looked like twins when they were sniping at each other in the sewing room.
I didn't care if snakeskin or knit lady were auffed, they were both pretty bad.
Prof. Snape. I loved his comments this episode.
I was having flashbacks looking at Anya and Wretchen's pics on the wall.
PR is back!! More of Tim Gunn! Yay!!
I couldn't get over Gunnar's comment that Chris was so bitchy. Chris was not a problem, he tried to be nice, Gunnar verbally slapped him across the face, for no reason.
Wanted snake lady to go.
Love "Snape". He is talented and very entertaining.
Ven is amazing. His ability to work fabric is brilliant. And he has a wonderful sense of style.
Kooan is just bizarre. I can't decide if he is really that tacky or he's doing it for fun and then will astonish us with his real talent. Wishful thinking, maybe?
...or just another one-trick pony.
Dreams of grandeur, like Ping?
I don't get why they cast such people; they are costing those with real ability a chance.
If it's for the "drama", they shouldn't bother; the truly talented provide enough of that!
Totally agree, unless this guy has something we haven't seen (maybe?). I would much rather see a balanced competition with all of the competitors chosen for talent, not DRAMA.
Buffi reminds me of Britney Murphy in Clueless. Something about the way she laughs.
If Nick and Mondo were responsible for the casting of Kooan or Buffi, UGH!
I read Nick's blog - he was not part of the casting of Kooan
How nice to see so many former contestants back - Josh, Rami, April, Jerell, Ping, Michael Costello...Thanks, BM.
I hope Alicia goes soon. I hate those dropped-crotch pants she thinks are so cool.
I wonder if the casting of the strange/talent questionable types affects the "credibility" of the show?
How is it viewed by the "industry"?
Are any of the contestants - win or lose - really successful afterwards?
it was pretty ballsy of heidi to judge tonight's show in what looked like a pair of pajamas from the set of jerseylicious
I liked the winning dress, but I also liked the shark dress.
Did anyone quit yet? I was only half watching up to the runway show.
I would have been fine with either of those winning.
Not yet. Nothing in next week's previews either.
I was thinking she might want to be comfy so she could eat the left over candy later.
I also had to laugh at Nina Garcia saying the shark dress made her smile. That woman doesn't smile.
No, Bunim Murray did it again by showing a clip in the previews that had nothing to do with the upcoming show. Remember the ambulances from last season?
If you looked at the back of the "shark" dress, it wasn't quite as well-constructed as the judges thought.
I'm glad Ven won.
Buffi and Lantie's dresses were both terrible.
However, it was obvious that Lantie didn't want to be there; so, it was easier to let her go.
Does Buffi know what "taste" is?
I missed it last night, we had some excitement here. Which dress won?
This lovely one, by Ven:
I really like Dmitry's dress. It was also one of the few that was very wearable. Ven made a beautiful dress, but it wasn't "fun".
Glad Ven won this week, he should have won last week. But, if he pulls another 'rose' outfit out, I'll start wondering if he's going to be like Ruffles (Leanne).
Would have been happy with Sharky winning.
I liked the weaving on Buffi's top, if she had managed to make a dress out of it and ditched some of the accessories, she would have done well.
Still not sure how the older woman's candy dot dress didn't make it into the B3. It was horrid and she's delusional. DO NOT question the Divine Tim Gunn.
Kooan is totally a producer's pick. I'm guessing the angsty glue gunner is the one who disappears/quits?
I'd rather see something beautiful than most of their attempts at "fun".
Just finished watching last night's episode.
The snarking by the judges this season is almost more than I can stomach. I used to think that Michael Kors was funny. Now I just think that he's mean. And Heidi isn't much better.
Christopher and Gunnar.....they both are ridiculous. I haven't decided who I dislike more yet.
Ven makes beautiful clothes. But he's arrogant and unemotional. That's never a good combo.
I liked Dmitry's dress the best. I was pleased with the dresses in the top 3, but I wasn't as impressed with the shark dress as with Dmitry's.
Kooan's style actually worked with this challenge. Kind of. He's not going to last much longer.
There should have been a bottom 4. Christine definitely should have been a part of the craptacular display, Lanie going home was the obvious choice. She didn't even try.
Because she used more candy than two of the contestants, plus her candy actually stayed on? I agree, she was probably just barely above the bottom 3.
Her outfit was tragic, but you nailed the reason she got by. Rule number one in unconventional materials challenges is that you do not grab the closest thing to fabric. Had Lantie never watched a season???
Likely not...and what's more, I don't think she cared.
It was SO bad!! I think she should have been one of the B2.
Overall, I was impressed with many of the designs. It was difficult to pick T3.
ita, i think overall it was much better than the last time they went to dylan's candy bar for a challenge
