So what’s up this week? Who’s in? Who gets Auf’d? Now that the adorable Wesley is gone, will his boyfriend (YES! THE TRUTH!) Daniel be too sad to sew? What adorable outfit will they have Heidi in this time? Will Tim strangle Blayne for calling him ‘Timlicious?’ As always, spoilers and this week’s roundup, after the jump.
I’m a bit peeved. Haven’t we done the ‘take pictures around the city!’ challenge before? Didn’t Andre make a beautiful gutter-water dress or something like that? Am I taking crazy pills? Bueller? Of course, Stella is basically a thousand-year-old piece of petrified leather (excuse me, LEATHAH), and can’t work her camera. Surprise. And then, of course, from the short-haired guy with glasses (whose name I haven’t learned yet, which probably means he’ll be gone soon), we get this season’s first utterance of the old reality show staple line: “I’m not here to make friends!” Apparently, Stella and Kenley are too snarky for him. He wouldn’t last a week on the Tila Tequila show.
I will say that seeing our contestants galavant around New York at night makes me think about moving there even more than I already have been. So, I guess I can get behind this challenge. But still, a bit peeved. I get the feeling that the writers are kind of phoning it in this season – we’ve already had one obvious rehash of a previous challenge, and it’s only week 3.
And this week? This is the week that Project Runway officially jumped the shark, because this is the week that Tim Gunn, he of wonderful vocabulary and fabulous verbiage, learned to say ‘Holla at ya boy,’ despite the fact that they teased it in the previews for last week’s show. So it may go off to Lifetime now, may God have mercy on its soul (and may God punish Harvey Weinstein for being such an a-hole).
So who is bad this week? Well, a lot of people, but we’re early yet. Suede’s looks kind of H&M, and Stella somehow managed to make a 115 pounds, 6 foot tall model look like she had love handles. Emily made some sort of Copacabana frou-frou ruffly thing, and Keith (that’s the whiny glasses-wearer) made a dress with a lot of crap stuck to it. The mousey girl that is not the one that wears glasses made a mousey clock dress. Surprise!
I’m going to have to agree with the judges in that I kind of loved Kenley’s in an Alexis Carrington, fabulous ’80s way. I’d never wear it, but it’s still pretty cool. My favorite for the night was the mousey girl that DOES wear glasses (Leanne!), who was atrocious last week – I would buy AND wear both pieces that she made, together and separately. She referenced her photo while still being editorial and maintaining her personal style. To me, that makes a winner. But again, the judges don’t agree, because Kenley won. I’ll allow it, because I love her in general, but I thought Leanne was better tonight, as much as Leanne annoys me.
It was down to Jennifer and Emily, and really it’s a crapshoot at this point, because they both were full of suck. The Carmen Miranda getup was the worst, just barely, so Emily got the boot. At this point, we’re just weeding out the terribles, so the Auf’ing is kind of anticlimactic.
I stick by my original picks of people to watch – Daniel, Korto, and Kelli, and I’m going to have to add Kenley because I think her hair is so cute. And please, for everything that is holy, let Blayne go home next week.
