Also note that Tim DID NOT wait until he had sent A.J. away to bitch slap team Luxe. He included A.J. basically saying Gretchen will run all over you if you don't have the balls to stand up for yourself. Also, he did not send the other team away before he let loose. That was for EVERYONE.Oh, and Tim! Gah! I loved it. I especially like how he cut AJ off and was like: PAPA BEAR HAS TO DOLE OUT THE TOUGH LOVE NOW SO ZIP IT EVERYONE.
I have to say that even though it's a tv show, and a reality show at that, I always find a level of concern and absolute sincerity to TIm's contributions. He plays it straight. It's refreshing.
I loved the fact Michael C's "thrown under the bus" moment was mentioned in the judging. Without that, he might not have eked out.I am sorry but I do think Gretchen is evil and Ivy is getting there. I am so glad Michael C. won tonight. Sort of an in your face moment. What kills me is even though he won they STILL were talking trash about his dress. I liked it a lot. Although, I do still adore Mondo's work.
As for the Michael who was in the bottom 3, I can GUARANTEE he will blame it all on the fat girl. "Oh if I didnt end up with the fat chick, I could have made something better." That dress was garbage. At least Peach TRIED.
I completely agree with you about ALL the pants. What monstrosities.Peach's dress was a monstrosity. Every time I saw it, it got worse. The thing was just hideous. Even if Michael Kors has no idea what a goiter is, he was right to trash that dress by comparing it to a disfiguring disease. I liked Peach in general, but she completely lost the plot.
I like the challenges that use non-models for the runway, because it shows who can really tailor clothes, and who can only make things one size. And one of the worst offenders was Ivy. Those pants looked horrible in the rear. Valerie's dress was also really poorly conceived and constructed. And although Michael D. did have a somewhat legitimate lament about an ugly dress and not much fabric to clothe a larger model (she was pretty tall, too), you could tell he pretty much gave up as soon as he got his model. I thought the judges were being a little harsh in calling it a bat mitvah dress - I thought he made a junior prom dress - but that may have been the magic of television. I bet that upholstery fabric looked offensive if you saw it in person.
The Gretchen/Ivy/Andy Waaahmbulance corps is really, really annoying. They're not good enough to be that bitchy. Gretchen is a stylist more than anything, Andy is inconsistent, Ivy hasn't done anything yet. I'm glad Michael C won. I didn't love his dress (I wasn't a huge fan of what the pocket did to the shape of the hips), but I liked it a lot. He's a solid designer. Perhaps he's weak in construction, but that will come to light eventually. In the meantime his stuff is equal to anyone. Mondo would have a stronger challenge if he didn't decide to channel Snooki so literally with the hairdo, but that almost makes me like him more. Tomorrow I'm buying white shorts and a matching bow-tie in homage to him. Gotta wear them before labor day!
I'm disappointed that Ivy wasn't bounced.
I also don't understand mondo's motivation or finished product. yuck.
