The new season of Project Runaway starts tonight! I don't even care that it's on Lifetime instead of Bravo where it belongs. I'm so excited I could plotz!

Oh, this was a fun one. I might have to record it at the next reairing, or else wait until I get some more iTunes cards and just buy it off of iTunes.

First off, has Keith learned nothing? Claiming you obeyed the rules and that the producers set you up and were out to get you is just...it's not the best way to win back fans. Seriously, you were acting like it was one big conspiracy theory and that everyone - even Tim Gunn and Heidi fucking Klum - were against you! Well, with that attitude I can hardly blame them.

And Vincent...wow. You're scary, dude. I mean, I understand your frustration over the laundry foul-up, but was that any reason to launch into a 20 minute tirade about it, going out into the hallway and then out onto the street, with liberal use of the F-word? Yee-ikes.

Hooray for special guests bringing out the big giant check for Michael Knight!...oh, wait it's just Nina Garcia and Michael Kors. Nevermind.

I'd like to know what was setting off that alarm during the Black and White/Cocktail Dress challenge episode. That was funny; every time Michael Kors or Nina would open their mouths - buzz! buzz! buzz! And scarily, that alarm sounded exactly like the fire alarm from my old dorm. Exactly like it.

And Tim the Walking/Living Dictionary was good, but not as good as last season's "Make It Work/Carry On" montage, plus Santino's "Tim-bot 2000". I don't think anything can top that.

Project Runway was fucking robbed, man.

Robbed.

EDIT: And no mention of Mako in the "In Memoriam" reel, either? That's bad enough, but his passing wasn't even mentioned in People magazine! Time, yes and I think Newsweek too. But if his death was mentioned in Time you'd think at least People would put it in the Passages section! He'd made enough of an impact for that at least!

They'd better not leave him out of the tributes at the Oscars or the Tonys next year, or Ima raise holy hell.

EDIT THE 2nd: Yayyyy! Mariska Hargitay won! Go Olivia!!! Whoo-hoo!!

SON OF THE EDIT: But Chris Meloni got robbed. And how come they didn't play the cut-off music for Keifer Sutherlend?

*exhales* Whoa. Tense last few minutes of tonight's episode. I was actually chanting "Please let Robert still be in" under my breath after Vincent left the runway and Robert and Bradley were the only ones left.

Jeffrey: That's it; you're on my shit list again. Laura was right. If you're such a fucking good designer, then why the hell are you on Project Runway? Obviously you're too good to be on a reality show associating with the other designers. Obviously you can go out and start your own line without anyone else's assistance at all. That's the attitude you keep projecting anyway.

Laura: You took the words right out of my mouth, hon.

Angela: Once again, she surprised me. Since she had immunity from the last challenge, she could very well have turned in a piece that was completely off and not have to worry about being the next designer to go. But she didn't. That was a very Audrey Hepburn-like dress. Even the rosettes were added tastefully; I didn't even know they were there until Angela pointed them out during the runway Q&A. And the compliment Heidi gave her, about wanting one in every color...that is high praise right there girlfriend.

Michael: That was an awesome outfit, especially after he revamped it from his original design. He deserved to win.

Robert: C'mon, man! Don't crap out on me now! You've got talent - you know that, I know that, the judges know that from previous challenges! Why the hell are you suddenly slumping? I don't want to have to waste this nice "OTP" icon I made.

And as one last note, did anyone else crack up at Tim's face when Michael first mentioned that he was going to do hot pants for his piece rather than a skirt? Seriously, someone needs to cap that and icon it ASAP. It needs to be immortalized.

Jeffrey: Cry me a fucking river, honey. So you haven't won a challenge yet! We're only, what, four episodes into the season? You're not the only designer who hasn't won! But you don't see any of them bitching and whining over it, do you? Right now the only thing that's keeping you in my good graces, aside from the fact that you and Angela managed to pull off this week's challenge in spite of Keith's dickery, was that in last week's challenge you picked the corgi. Only reason.

Keith: You screwed yourself, man. Doesn't matter if you read the books or not, just having them is a no-no. It's IN THE FUCKING RULES. I won't get into your little going off-site for several hours stunt. Not to mention you were an asshat for the whole time you were in the challenge, what with manipulating Angela and Jeffrey into pretty much doing the work for you and finagaling discounts out of the cashiers at Mood. I'm certain that would have been added to the list of charges had Tim and the producers known about it.

Bradley: No, it's not the beard. It's the fact that you frickin' PROCRASTINATED through last week's design and it was only by the grace of God/whoever/whathaveyou that the judges liked your design and placed you in the top three. Although I have to admit, you do kind of look like Shaggy from Scooby-Doo, only with a fuller beard.

Angela: Okay, see? That's the proper way to do rosettes. Not placing them willy-nilly on the skirt and/or top of your outfit. Of course, you wouldn't have figured that out anyway had Laura and Michael not been helping you.

Michael: Um, about that shirt you were wearing for the runaway show? Uh, no. Just...no. It reminded me too much of Michael Jackson.

Vincent: *sigh* Remind me why I like you again? Being a part of a team, whether the leader or just a member, doesn't mean that everyone follows the team leader blindly. If you've got a problem, speak up! And the sooner the better, before something like that gets sent down the runway again.

Robert: Once again, you remind me why I need a "Robert + Sunglasses = OTP" icon.

Next week's challenge: All right, I'm curious about the model free-for-all in the workroom. And hooray, Michael Kors is back in the judge's chair!

Lots of prettiness on tonight's Runway. Lots of prettiness.

-Kayne and Robert...how awesome were they? I had a good feeling about their partnership when Kayne picked out that irridescent-purply fabric at Mood. And at first I wasn't too sure about the ruffles on the bottom of the skirt, but it all came together and the model worked it really well. And their little comedy schtick while they were working was just terrific. Plus, Robert + sunglasses = OTP!

-Vincent, you are no longer on my favorites list. You. Are. A. DICK! You kept saying you were the "team leader", but it seems to me like you forgot the second part and thought you were the entire team. You complain about Angela not doing anything, when the only thing you've told her to do is stand 3 feet away from you. WTF?!?

-Angela, you need to kick Vincent's ass. You also should have stood up for yourself more on the runway instead of just shooting Vincent dirty looks. Honey, you pretty much became his scapegoat.

It is official: we now have Project Runway: Season 3! Whoo-hoo! My summer just got better!

-Even though it's really early in the game, I've already picked out my favorite designers. Robert's up there. So are Angela and Alison. And, God love him and despite that damn hat, Vincent.

-Malan (or whatever the hell his name is; why don't I just call him Prissy Boy?) looks to be this season's bitch. And Jeffrey is definately this season's Santino. There's no maybe about it, Heidi.

-Okay, re: Vincent and the hat: WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING, MAN! Basket hat does not equal good idea! Also, why the hell did you look disappointed when Heidi told Keith that he won? The judges pretty much took you to task for that hat you put on your model; didn't that give you an inkling that you didn't have it in the bag?

-I know that all the designers trashed their apartments for material for this first challenge, but was it too much to ask for at least some of the important furniture to be replaced, like the beds? I mean, come on, they were all spending at least a night in those apartments if not longer (depending on who was "aufed" first). And they don't have time to go out replacement-furniture shopping themselves.

-I could not stop giggling every time Tim Gunn said "Carry on" or "Make it work." Could not. Is that bad?

Cut for those who didn't get to see the finale tonight and don't want to be spoiled for the winner )

But they all did a good job. And I can't wait for season 3. *wonders if Daniel Franco's going to come back for a third season*

Other observations:

-First of all...the return of Tim-bot 5000!

-Okay, Santino and Daniel's collections...were both of them channeling Nick when they were designing those dresses? Seriously, the trains on those things looked like Nick's signature "fish-tail" look. And I cringed when Daniel's last model tripped on the train of her gown. I thought the judges were going to dock him serious points for that.

-Um, Chloe? What was UP with the poofy sleeves on the first model? Seriously, how can anyone WEAR something that poofy?

-And speaking of Chloe's collection, I'm not a fashion designer but isn't it a bad idea to send two dresses made of the same patterened fabric right after each other on the runway?

-Jay? That hairstyle you were supporting at Fashion Week? No. Just...no. Do anything else with it, but do not slick it down and/or dye it. Flaunt that red hair, honey.

-I was with Michael Korrs; I wanted to take those patches off of Daniel's dresses too. I mean, they're dresses, not military uniforms.

-Okay, I don't give a shit if the judges thought Santino's collection was "safe" or not, or if the dresses didn't really fit the models that well (hey, if I remember last week's episode right it's not Santino's fault that NOT ONE of his models showed up to actually be FITTED while he was working). Those. Dresses. Were. GORGEOUS. They were more along the lines of that party dress Santino designed for Nickie Hilton. The judges can keep their opinions; I was impressed by the "mature" Santino Rice.

Both Dan and Andre deserved to win this challenge, although I wish Andre had been the winner. As good as it was, I wasn't that thrilled with Dan's design. I think the huge, poofy collar had something to do with it.

Santino surprised me tonight. His dress was actually...simple. Or simpler, at least, compared to his earlier stuff. His ego still needs to be taken down a few notches, though.

And was I the only person who busted up laughing at Andre's reaction to Jay's assessment of Santino's dress? "Austin Scarlett's Grammy Dress". *snerk*

Oh...my god. I haven't been watching Project Runway regularly since it started this season, but GOD Santino is pissing me off! It's been proven more than once that he thinks more of himself and his own designs then about the wants and needs of the clients he's designing for in each competition. In the episode where the designers created a dress for one of the Hilton sisters, Santino looked put out that the judges had more good things to say about Nick's dress than they did for his.

And yet despite all of this, the guy is still on the show!

I hope that next week Santino either goes, or else Jay gives him the verbal smackdown on the runway. You want to win this competition so badly, Santino-honey? Then listen to what the previous winner has to say, damnit. He obviously knows what he's talking about.

posted here because I can't find a sane, rational Project Runway comm anywhere on LJ...to say nothing of the fans that populate said comms.
