I am extremely disappointed in your overhyping of what you described as "something so shocking" that would happen on Project Runway.
The Modern Gal
Ok, was anyone else let down by the lack of drama in last night's episode? We knew something would happen to Jack and we knew he was probably gone. Not to minimize his health concern, and I'm very, very glad he's OK and opted to care for his health rather than go on, but I assumed this was going to be something to do with AIDS (again, glad it's not and he's OK) or another contestant. And the thing is, we all know Jack's alive, doing well and dating Dale of the previous Top Chef season. So there really wasn't much alarm except for the fact that we'll never know if Jack would have made it to Bryant Park. Of course, it wouldn't be unheard of for Bravo to put Jack back on the show either in this season or another in the future. It's happened before (see below.)
Moving on. As soon as Jack said he was auf'ing himself, I said to myself, "Lawd, they're going to bring back Chris." Because they'd done it before. On Top Chef, season 1, when Cynthia chose to leave to be with her dying father, the producers brought back kumbaya Andrea. And last season on PR, producers brought back crazies Vincent and Angela. And you know what happened to all of those people who returned? They got the boot sooner or later. And here's a not-so-surprising surprise. It will happen to Chris, who despite his adoreableness, couldn't design his way out of a paper bag.
Ok, I've said my piece.
I loved, loved, LOVED this challenge. It was reminiscent of the mom challenge of last season, which incidentally has been the only challenge ever that made me tear up a bit. I would have loved to offered the Modern Gal's own mum for this, as she would have fit in beautifully, having lost 60-something pounds and not having much of an eye for fashion.
Heidi, is that a bun in the oven, or are you just really happy to see me?
Loved Christian's outfit. He definitely won that one. I kinda felt like Steven got shafted a bit being stuck with a wedding dress, but I'm sure some of his peers could have made that outfit sing if they wanted to. Hated Elisa's outfit. Like Chris, I love her personality, but it's obvious she won't be showing at Bryant Park. I'm ready to get down to the nitty gritty with the following designers: Christian, Jillian, Kevin, Kit, Rami and Victorya. And we'll keep Sweet P around for comic relief.
Oh, and can I get a shout out for this guy? He is my hero. He is the head designer for The Gap. Swoon.
You may proceed to dress me, sir.
