Project Runway 6: Episode 2

After watching last night's episode of Project Runway, I have a suggestion for next season: start out with 10-12 designers, max. I know that the show is a phenomenon and the producers want to keep it on as long as possible, but 16 designers (down to 15 at the start of episode 2) is just too many. So much is crammed into each episode that, come 11:00, it's hard to remember much of the fabric and fierceness (if any) that was flying around. (It's a good thing I'm a fast note-taker.)

Of course, it doesn't help that there are still no standout personalities in this season's group. Either all the fabulousness is being edited for time or there isn't any to edit in the first place. I hope it's the former or it's going to be a loooong season.

The beginning of last night's show found Mitchell thanking his lucky stars that he didn't get the boot last week after sending his model down the runway in a see-through dress. I assumed that all this early focus on Mitchell meant that he would either be this week's challenge winner or screw up again and be auf'd...

Ugh, Mitchell is boring as hell. Then again, I liked the crazy egg-sling, so what do I know from taste? I was super glad he ditched the jodhpurs, that was terrible.

As usual, it hasn't started airing here so I'll be reading your recaps late, I think it starts in a couple of weeks. We Canadians are a wee bit slow!

I want more designers, which would mean the show would have to run more episodes.

I love Project Runway. Tim Gunn is my hero!

I really like the dude that won the first challenge. Michael. I agree though...it's hard to narrow it down.

I thought the same thing about "no standout personalities." Actually I thought 'these people are boring.' Maybe you're right and they will bring the drama later when there are fewer designers.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
