    Yes, I LOVE JTF :up::up::up: I follow him on FB and he is a DOLL! His husband (I think they are married now) is a cutie too! :D Anyway, this is the first time I have teared up during PR since Mondo announced his HIV (+) status on the runway .... such a sweet moment :eek: ...then when his BF proposed to him as well, I just teared up all over again! Too precious! I hope Heidi does come to the wedding...she said she'd be a bridesmaid, did she not? ;)

    And yes, the top 3 looks were darling. I hate the "everyone gets a trophy" mentality of today, but was aaaaaaalmost wishing for co-winners, the winning look and the party dress. Both so fresh and new, inventive, showed lots of work without being overworked, beautifully made and would sell too.

    Man, oh, man, so true what was said-the bottom 3 got super-lucky when Sandro "left" (as did Helen with her immunity) .. UGH! What a baby! So many would love to take your place...I can't believe you left, dude! :mad:

    JTF was so nice to everyone, he couldn't find it in himself to be mean...seriously, what a sweetheart...

    i am amused sometime when they announce the top and bottom 3 - more often than not i assume one of the top 3 is one of the bottom

    this week i was certain the party dress was in the bottom
    the dress itself was fine the bow tie neck plate was awful

    i found the grandmother's passing disingenuous when he said it was actually his partner's grandmother
    hmmmm yeah i guess?

    You would rate dom's dress over Alexander's look? If dom is in the bottom, which other looks would you have put in the bottom three with her?

    I would have made Dom's look safe
    - not saying I think it should be in the bottom -
    Alexander's was just as bad.

    I would not have had Jeremy in the bottom
    - yes it's old fashioned but it was impeccably made.

    Karen and Justin's were pretty bad

    i admit i am doing none of this from memory
    - i had to go look at them... (and there are still too many for me to remember their names)

    Bleeping bleepity bleep COMCAST had a cable outage right in the middle of the runway show!

    :mad: :mad: :mad:

    I wish Ken could come get all pissy on their incompetent asses. :p

    WTF was Sue thinking to buy drapes for an unconventional materials challenge? Hello, it's fabric!

    Using all wallpaper and nothing else is really coasting too, as far as I'm concerned. I still remember the unconventional materials challenge where the designers used the cars for the material source, and there was that stunning look made out of the seatbelt webbing.

    I was all ready to hear the judges rip the designers a new one, just like Tim did -- but NOOOOO. Thanks to Comcast, I'll have to wait for a repeat.

    GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

    I dunno this season seems to have a nutjob of the week.

    Ken.
    What a petulant immature unpleasant person.
    Don't even look at me? Guuuuurrrrrrrl. Duct tape?
    You should have been sent packing also.

    I was watching and making fun of Jeremy's "I might just win" mantra - - - until he won that is.

    I think Bradon's was the winning design of the night.

    OMG-Ken was so negative about everything....dude, no one really enjoys a team challenge, but they make the best of it..or they fail...I was so hoping they would send him packing as well.

    Then the previews from next week:

    Ken: I don't like being outside! DUDE! STOP BEING SO NEGATIVE ABOUT EVERYTHING!!!!!!!

    I did like Jeremy's look...worst to first, baby! Good for him! But he did get lucky with his team.

    This was just crazy.

    I don't remember but did Tim give the regular speech in the beginning about NOT using traditional material like shower curtains and such? I know he has in the past.

    Kudos to the team that, even though they did use place mats, they also used FOOD!!!! that was awesome. Black rice and berries for the red color. All three should have won.

    I was thinking both ken and the girl that didn't sew should have gone home.

    I confess though I fell asleep - believe it or not in the middle of the judges critiques of the bad team. I am guessing tall girl with wild hair was sent home.

    Ditto. I understand why the judges went crazy for the winning team's look, because of the use of materials, but that gown was stunning.

    IMHO Ken gets a pass for his attitude in this episode. Did no one else hear Sue's snarky comment after the team was announced?

    "Ken, you gonna be our chauffeur?"

    :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I was so gobsmacked, I didn't hear what else anybody said for a good thirty seconds. I had to pause the TiVo and run it back to catch what I had missed while my mind was all caught up in oh no she di'int!

    Alexandria has also had her ***** moments this season, so really, I can't blame Ken one bit for being upset he was stuck on that team. Yes, he was a sulky baby about it, but if I had been shut out of the fabric choices and the design process all day long, I would be pretty pissed, too.

    P.S. I've been wondering all season if Sandro has bi-polar disorder. After last night's sendoff, even more so.

    he wasn't shut out of anything he refused to participate in the collaboration including the fabric choices and design process

    there is NO pass for that attitude / chip on his shoulder

    it was perhaps the most vile demonstration of arrogant self importance on a reality show since Phi Phi O'Hara on Ru Paul's Drag Race a couple of years ago

    This^.

    When he said "I'm not dressing no 40 year old woman!" I asked my cat "Does he even know how old Heidi is?"

    What a pissy little spoiled, ****wad baby.

    He needs smacked right in the head and made to sit in a corner.
    With no dinner.

    I cried.

    And Tim used his save!
    Can't say I have loved any of Justin's designs, but the moment felt right for the save emotionally, so yay that.

    Personally I liked the trees at midnight dress best because it was subtle. Could have done without the leather at the bottom, though.

    Except that Tim seemed to make the save based on feeling sorry for Justin rather than disagreeing with the judges. Justin is clearly a very nice guy but I haven't seen anything amazing from him that would justify a save at this point.

    The only ones who have done it for me this season are Dom, Kate and Jeremy. I think Jeremy is clearly the favorite to win, although Kate would not surprise me.

    Dom was robbed. And this week was not the first time.

    Tim seems to be feeling responsible for some of the instances where the designers shoot themselves in the foot after his critiques.

    I agree and if one of the really good designers has a bad week it could come back to haunt him.

    I disagree - and surprised you left out Braedon - who I think is clearly the favorite to win. Dom has been surprising me as the show goes along. Kate has been doing great.

    I wouldn't even put Jeremy in the top 3 and wish he would stop playing the emotion card.

    I did think it was funny during the runway show how almost every single designer said - I'm going to win this week!

    The look on Ken's face during Alexandria's critique and win? PRICELESS!

    Soooo happy for Alexandria-worst to first, baby! :D:up:

    Sooo hoping Ken would go home for that awful piece of crap-WTF was he thinking? It looked like a hideous Christmas elf outfit for someone to wear at the mall at a Santa's Village or something....YUK! :thumbsdown::thumbsdown:

    I have liked Justin since his first interview where he said that if the workroom got too loud, he'd just turn down his hearing aid-LOL! :p I LOVE people who have a good sense of humor about themselves ;)

    Agree with what others have said, though-not sure if he quite deserved the save...I think Tim felt bad...well, so I guess 2 people go home next week? Or is there an extra week?

    Interesting scenario, isn't it? There is precedent for sending an extra person home next week.

    We'll have to see what happens, especially because people know now there's no more 'safety net'.

    The Tim Gunn save has been a part of this season from the beginning, so I assume the producers already had planned that one week there won't be an elimination when they timed out the season. I don't think there will be a double elimination because Tim used his save (although I was hoping it would happen the previous week when Ken was on the bottom with Sue).

    Bradon has been good but he seemed to come undone this week.

    I guess I did my top 3 off the top of my head. I decided to check the PR website and look at all the designs so far. Jeremy is solid but not very adventuresome. I think I've been mostly impressed with his construction and always presenting a finished garment. The only time he was on the bottom I thought it was a really nice outfit and disagreed with the judges.

    I'll move Dom up to #1 on my list. Her portfolio for those (like me) who can't remember all of them. http://www.mylifetime.com/shows/project-runway/season-12/designer-portfolios?designer=4

    Kate: http://www.mylifetime.com/shows/project-runway/season-12/designer-portfolios?designer=10

    Bradon: http://www.mylifetime.com/shows/project-runway/season-12/designer-portfolios?designer=3
