I preferred Valerie's dress, but I would've been happy with Mondo's too. Gretchen's wasn't bad, but I liked the detail work of the other two better.

Oh and Mondo almost made me cry when he wasnt bonding with the other guys. I will be his friend. OH and that one dude who went home..God his dress was a hot mess. Seriously, who told him he was a designer?

p.s.
Paquito, will you be my boyfriend?

Charlie Chaplin was a hot mess indeed. "Oh no, I won't sit down on your chairs and converse when I've just been eliminated. GOOD DAY SIR." And not letting Tim do his little speech? How dare you.

And Lisa, the answer is yes. Come rest on the magnificent bosom of Jes with me.

Ok I liked Gretchen and Valerie's designs but Mondo's was the best. It looked more marie claire than anything up there. I think I will pick Mondo for the win this season. I like his style.
Someone didn't do her homework!


But the answer is: PORN. C'mon. A jumpsuit? A 70s-kinda-sorta jumpsuit? That's porn, baby. P O R N. Sorry, Paquito. But here, let me dry your tears with my nipples.

Allright. My commentary is this: these people is cray cray! I mean honestly now. I hate the cryers. I hate the 'I haven't bonded with anyone' stuff. Um, why is it always the person who is sitting alone, or sleeping while everyone is up, or crying while people are happy, who is saying: I have no friends! no one wants to be my friend! Uh--no one is going to come and sit on your bed and wake you up to talk to you, ok? This isn't an episode of the Golden Girls.

Well then again....

But also, Jason, with his 'I've been misunderstood since I was a child.' OH SHUT UP. How much bullshit can anyone spew? What a fuckin' cop out, just like..>Grechen? Someone said.

I wasn't too impressed with anything really...I did like the top 3, I don't understand why the judges ALWAYS LOVE A PANTSUIT (remember Santino's glued-together confection in shades of brown?? gah!), and I think it's shitty for Heidi to have said: One of you is in and One of you is out (I listened and I'm pretty sure she said that). That indicates ONE is out. You can get rid of more than 1, but don't be misleading. I somehow feel that's mean.

Finally, why do you all think they kept Peach? They liked her tailoring. But NOTHING else. Not the styling. Not the garment. Not the color. Not hte fabric. Not the weird neck caterpillar. NECKERPILLAR! I just made up a word...and I like it.

the more the merrier. But i DID call first dibs on Paquito-wito. *meaningful look*

Honestly, I'd blotted out that shitty moment where he bailed before TIm got there. Tim handled it with such aplomb. I hope there's enough bosom left for Tim. Oh who am I kidding--OF COURSE THERE IS.

I think they kept her because she is can get the job done...She just needs to start thinking younger. I like her, she seems very sweet and capable...maybe she will go out and buy some fashion mags to figure out whats going on here.

First off: SCORE :D

Second: I don't understand the whole jumpsuit thing either. I mean it was tailored better than the ones we usually see, but I'm sick of them always creaming when someone makes one.

It really annoyed me when some of the contestants were already using "always." Like "I always feel alone in this game," or "this always happens." IT'S THE SECOND EPISODE PEOPLE. You JUST moved into Atlas. We can't have all these tears for people you've known for what, 5 days? The waterworks don't happen until at least the 6th episode.

Also, I think the only reason they kept Peach was because both Jason and Nicholas were already on their second chance. They really had to prove themselves, and they didn't cut it (though I think that if Nicholas had a back on the blouse and no cape, it would've been good).

Man I haven't been fawned over this much since...



well who are we kidding? I'm cute as a fucking button. Happens all the time. :D

Right? I wonder about that too...like, do they mix up the order of events when assembling the season (so the 1st challenge is really the 3rd) and then immediately I was like: DUH. NO. Because we see how many contestants are left! So of course the order is correct. And it's stupid when people say those things, just as you pointed out.

I think this season will be very contentious. And if Mondo (was that him?) doesn't stop the 'woe is me' crying game, i'll go back in time and slap him in his face.

I'm glad they auf'd Charlie Chaplin. His dress was ridonkulous! "It's the infinity symbol...or .. umm.. the figure 8"! Umm.. no it's just ugly. And the photo he chose - with the safey pin showing a gap in the models stomach?.. puhleeze! And then his reference to how he's just a mere mortal and not a machne! (I'm paraphrasing here) Good God, Man!!

It's safety pins...Jason you just started your period at school and bled all over everything. Sorry you missed it. You pulled out your hem and everyone swore they had no Scotch tape...sorry.

Sorry I'm checking in late, but WTF do they mean something "looks matronly," and that jumpsuit Lauren Bacall-had-a-bad-day thing is loved? And yes, her butt looked big in it.

I wasn't overly impressed with any of it, but I never am at this stage. Poor Peach...pick a lane. Honestly, if I have to drive beside you any more, I will pick a lane for you.

Mondo just wants someone to jump him. I get that. I have just found that whining about it only gets you a pity-fuck, and this is national TV, baby. You will pay for that a LONG time.

Anyway, I want them to pick up the pace. When Tim announces that it's time to leave Mood and you're still standing there waiting for your tacky fabric to be cut...you need to go home. Tim rules.

And yes, I want to see the word "tacky" used more.

This is a good point. I think we're going to see her being like ... Wendy (season 1). The suburban Mom with the lack of understanding about the fashion world. Remember how she made her final line and the pieces just didn't coordinate? Conservative garments and then boom! a see-through dress. And the question was asked: who IS the woman (for whom you're designing)? Who wears a cardigan and then a see through dress with nipples out? I mean, it's a fair question and she looked like it had never occurred to her. NEXT!

Peach does what she does well. She just doesn't make fashion. I'm guessing she'll hang on a few more weeks (so many do when the cast is this large) but still make inappropriate garments 'til she's auf'd.

In other news, annoucement forthcoming (keep reading).

Have we ever had a season where one of the judges wasn't pregnant?

Finally watched the episode. I honestly thought this was one of the worst runways ever. Crap all over the place.

I wasn't really impressed with Gretchen's jumpsuit, but there wasn't really anything I was a big fan of. Mondo's was pretty fun, I guess.

My theory about Jason is that he was so busy fighting off his Gay Panic that he couldn't manage to do anything else.

I like the 90 minute format for now, but when it's down to 6 people, I think it's going to be uber-painful.

I think they kept Peach because at least she finishes things. That polka-dot monstrosity was terrible, but at least it was constructed and finished. My feeling is that there will be a group challenge soon, and she could fair well there. Someone else's good taste and her speed and construction would be enough to keep her in it for a few more weeks. I hate HATE her taste though. Those white toile-y pants she brought to wear (that someone else had to work with) were criminally ugly.

I didn't really love anything this week. Gretchen's jumpsuit was made well, but I feel like I've seen it a dozen times in the last couple of seasons (of fashion, not PR). The trench dress was nice, but it looked a little more boxy than I think she intended, and Mondo's skirt was cute, but again I feel like I've seen it.

Also, I'm always late to Jes's party because I never watch anything when it actually airs. I'll be that really annoying guest who comes by three hours after everyone else and brings up everything you've already talked about.

Why would you say that? I mean... it's just that he's a straight guy in a gay-dominated profession...and, I mean, he's straight. I just want to point that out. That he's straight, I mean. And that he's not gay. Because you're not gay if you're straight. Which is what he is.
