    Wow, did Korina look like a bitter Betty in this episode or what? Glad to have her gone.

    That was the second most satisfying elimination this season.

    What a sore loser.

    The previews for last week looks like we are in for some more fun next week :)

    Kini is amazing. Tim: 'That's crap and is going to get you kicked' Kini: 'Give me a couple hours...how about this' Tim: 'Winner!'

    I think Char vs Korinna should have been one vs one instead of team vs team but yeah boy is she a poor sport.

    IMO based on the first runway Char should have gone home.

    Based on the 1-hour challenge - definitely Korina - in fact I think the judges were being kind and she was being super defensive both times.

    Can I blame her for feeling she got shafted?
    No.
    But she has been so nasty for the last couple of weeks it was karma.

    Ding dong the witch is gone.

    Boy, what a hateful person she has been -- since the beginning! She seems to think that the world is "fair" and she's having a tantrum because it's "unfair." She spent so much of her hour bit**ng about how unfair it was when she should have spent that time on her work. At this point I don't care if she's more talented (debatable but agree for argument's sake) than Char, she "deserves" to go home because she's completely and utterly unprofessional.

    And to follow my own advice I want to focus on the positive.

    Wow, Kini and Amanda's stuff was incredible! How FUN!! Cute cute cute soccer ball dress and Amanada's ball gown was also fun. They truly are the dream team. If I had to pick one it's Kini, but Amanda truly does elevate his work to a true design level. His workmanship and taste is impeccable and she has the vision. I thought they were screwed with the storage unit they chose with no fabric, but they didn't need it. And Tim Gunn really gave some great advice on the ball gown (which originally wasn't a ball gown). I think these might be my favorite three looks (as a combined collection) of the whole season.

    I am wondering, haven't we seen something like the soccer ball dress before?

    This was a week where my husband's battle cry of "send them both home" was appropriate.

    Korina totally dropped the ball on the part of the challenge where they were told to make it fashion.

    She had a chance to update everything on the trip to Mood, and instead dug herself firmly back into the 1970s.

    After this episode I'm thinking to myself "how will Korina hold her head up at the reunion show?". She was such an embarrassment! Perhaps she'll blame it on the editing as most do. :/

    on another note

    I just saw Amanda with a small role in this past week's Nashville episode playing a clothing stylist.

    OMG! Yes! Don't want to spoil anything..but she is so immature...on this ep (the one we are discussing), when she was sent to the workroom to clean up her space, she was crying and saying how she was hoping her clients could see how she was .... paraphrasing because I have already deleted the ep ... so great and all....well, it may be somewhat editing, but what this ep showed me is that she is an immature baby who can't take constructive criticism...

    All the judges tried to say positive things about her 1-hour challenge dress, and they could see she was visibly upset, and didn't want to upset her much more...but still she went on and on about how she didn't feel she should have been in this position in the first place...

    Geez...what a baby---waah waah waah....

    ..and I too saw Amanda on "Nashville"-thought she did a great job!

    My wife made the same comment... if her clients can see how she talks behind people's backs, how could they NOT assume she would do the same about them?

    Wow, I was just thinking that she really has strong screen presence. Photogenic (I know the mole bothers some, but that could always be removed if it's a hindrance) and a good sense of not overplaying her "bit." Not a Nashville watcher but hope she picks up some other things.

    Just wanted to drop in a note before watching tonight's episode. I didn't have a CableCard for a couple of years so I missed some seasons of Project Runway. I have DVDs for some of the missing seasons which I haven't gotten around to, but only up through Season 8.

    I discovered that Comcast allows you to watch On Demand via an Android app, so I've just binge-watched Season 9. I saw Season 10 and onward when they aired, so now to fill in the earlier gaps, I can watch my DVDs.

    Somehow the very different form-factor of watching the show on my phone made it less jarring and confusing than previous attempts to watch two seasons at once on my TV (via marathon re-runs). Weird, but that's the way it was. The fact that I already knew some of the designers from other shows like All-Stars may have made a difference; ditto the fact that I didn't start watching S9 until late in the current season, so there were far fewer designers to keep track of.

    Also, for those who skip commercials, I wanted to put in note about the upcoming show Project Runway: Threads which is premiering Thursday, October 23. This is the PR equivalent of Master Chef Junior, with designers who are teens and tweens.

    I have to watch because Christian Siriano is one of the judges. It's only eight episodes. I hope it's fun.

    Details here: About Project Runway: Threads

    Just leaving a placemarker for tonight's show. We have tonight, and the two finale shows coming up, and it will be all done.

    Who's ready for a new set of designers? :p

    It seems like -- once again -- we get slammed from one season of PR right into the next with no break in between. If there will be a reunion show, there's no sign of it yet on epguides.com.

    http://epguides.com/ProjectRunway/

    Edited to add: also saw an ad for All-Stars starting on October 30th -- so we'll have Threads and All-Stars running at the same time? Oy.

    So: what do you think of the judges' decision?

    I mostly agree with judges' decision. If they were going to keep more than three, I think they should have kept all five of the designers instead of letting just one go.

    To me, the only reason they've kept Char this long is to not embarrass Tim for his save. It was Sean vs Kini at the start of the season and it will be Sean vs Kini at the end.

    I've only seen a couple of clips of Threads. I'll be curious to see America's reaction to tween gay boys.
