    I wish they could have the models walk down the runway and we not have to see OR hear the designers. I usually will just mute that whole time because it bugs me to hear them. I turn sound on again when they bring them all up on state for review.

    As with so many television shows these days, they've introduced this "interactive" crap that just clutters the screen. During the runway portion they had a yes/no voting thing in the lower left and it was blocking my view of the outfit! :mad: I hate this interactive crap and since most TV shows have a synchronized on-line aspect, why not put that crap on the web site instead. :rolleyes:

    Other than that, I'm enthusiastic about the changes they've introduced.

    I feel so bad for eco-unicorn-designer's model. She knows she doesn't stand a chance at winning. Good for her giving him the "FU" by not doing his stupid choreography. :up:

    I really liked the woman that was eliminated. :(

    There's no shortage of drama coming up this season. :up: :D :up:

    they let sustainable Jeremy who couldn't design a paper bag stay?

    In the many seasons I have watched, the winner had nothing to do with talent and ability. (last season being the exception, although they kept others around longer for producer reasons)

    If they want the runway show to be anonymous, why not turn the button bag over to Tim, so Heidi won't know which model each designer chose?

    Diamonds. <yawn> So twentieth-century.

    One thing that struck me about this challenge. They have $4000 for the season. The suggested budget was $300.00. I understand how people might want to save money for later in the season, but what I don't get is why, in a challenge where your design is supposed to showcase those jewels, a designer would choose to spend only $90.

    Obligatory rant: learn to sew silk charmeuse before you go on Runway or leave it at Mood. And oh, yeah, learn to use a steamer.

    Use your time wisely: if you didn't go around the workroom pretending to be Tim Gunn, or spend your time having Russian hissy fits, you'd have more time to sew and/or learn to use a steamer.

    Department of weird fabrics: buckram? For evening wear? Seriously? (used in men's tailoring -- also used to bind books)

    Timothy's original design with the rectangle of blue fabric floating in space seemed like a luxe version of the black bar you do on a video to cover up a wardrobe malfunction. ;)

    Do they not have enough machines to go around? Or is "somebody messed with my machine" just an excuse?

    What designers would you like to see against Sandro in a tacky-off? (They'll never complain about Kayne again....)

    Surprised that the judges didn't get the Josephine Baker reference. The stylist doing the hair obviously knew what the intent was.

    OMG, the styling on Karen's blue dress. Those shoes, with a red carpet look? Really?

    So -- what are the odds that Helen padded her resume? I hope we don't have to put up with her weepy crap all season long.

    Was it Alexandria that was all "the weakest link must go!" in the green room? I had to re-run the runway show a couple of times while I was writing this message just to remember what she had done. She overspent the suggested amount, too. It seems like the producers have cast her as the ***** of the season.

    I really like the change this season so that the judges get to see the designs up close, and that Tim's allowed to give his input.

    The bottom three? My husband's usual battle cry is "send them all home!". It's hard to argue with him this week.

    So, I will say it. I actually thought Timothy's reverse razorback was an interesting idea. I liked the way it looked and the way it put the jewels on a velvet background - which is what he had wanted.

    The woman who broke down and cried? well she should have. That dress was a disaster. It wasn't just that it wasn't made well but it was just plain ugly. The color was not pretty, the model looked awkward walking down the runway in it. I really think she should have gone home instead of the woman that did. I mean, hers was pretty blah but not blah bad, just blah like they said - off the rack.

    I think Tim Gunn might have put the final nail in Kahindo's coffin by pointing out the underneath sewing on the silk when the judges were looking closer at her dress. If he hadn't pointed that out, things might have turned out different, as they seemed surprised when they saw that. It was a good call by Tim, however, to suggest to Kahindo that she should cover the silk in the first place, though.

    2nd challenge and the divas are already on max. Nice editing on Sandro, I thought he was going to exit stage left this time.

    Tim (not Gunn) design aesthetic - get crap, buff it into shiny crap.. he has a cause and is too young to know how to wrap fashion around it.

    No doubt. The designer that did get eliminated was boring. Not her design.

    That train wreck of a dress (Ms. Nervous Breakdown's) was worse than Jeremy's.

    I agree that his and his partner's look was God-Awful, but I think she should have gone. She took more ownership of the look. Actually, maybe both of them should have gone. Such drama!

    I can't wait for Sandro to go home.

    Miranda, too, for that matter. Yeah, go have therapy. Maybe your therapist can help you figure out why you're such a *****.

    Agreed, but Miranda's ugliness this week almost had me wishing she was the one to go instead of him. She got caught talking behind his back, and instead of immediately trying to rectify it (by apologizing, shutting up, or otherwise), she threw gas on the fire by continuing her rant to his face. Not cool.

    With that said, I'm still glad that Timothy's gone, though. :)

    I actually thought in those final moments that they would send both of them packing.

    The pairing of those two seemed fixed.

    I think Miranda needs some too.

    Who the heck wants to work with a woman like that. Nasty.

    I wish that had sent both of them out.

    Sandro displays the same attitude I hate (and wretched taste in costumes) from a lot of Russian figure skaters. I'm so glad he's gone.

    I really liked the top three looks. And isn't Jesse Tyler Ferguson a total sweetheart?
