  1. Elaine continues with her insightful comments. NOT. "I don't know where she'd wear this." Hello, it's an AVANTE GARDE challenge. Did you not get the memo? Nobody would wear anything on that runway anywhere unless they are making a fashion joke. I also don't like her "my girl" or "my man" comments as others have said before--It's insulting to the other designers to imply favoritism. Biggest eye-roll, though, came from her really relating to Coral's expressing her feeling she's been discriminated against for being a minority story when the whole cage idea came from a white guy. I
  2. This. Unless the runway garment is finished to perfection, which they never are, wasting time on making an outfit for yourself is telling the judges you care more about that than the garment they asked for. I don't think Bones had an off night. That is his aesthetic and it's terrible, IMO.
  3. I'm dating myself here, but Katie always made me think of S1 Starr--a self-taught designer who only designed for herself and couldn't read the room very well. And Bones is straying into S2 Santino territory. I can't believe he thought anyone would ever wear that to anything. The opinion of the guest judge made me take a second look at Kristina's and I saw the merit there. At first look, it's too much shapeless blah green, but the pieces individually were rather nice. I didn't like the shoes though; I'd prefer something brighter to contrast more with the light color of the garmen
  4. Didn't Julia Child have a famous quote about picking food up off the floor? "Who's to know?" I get more icked out by chefs or bakers blowing on their food before presenting it, or bending over it with loose, long hair. I couldn't understand Lizzie quite a bit of the time, so I didn't realize she was talking about dyslexia until the picture/description of her cake was shown. Her cake decoration was intricate and she carried it off beautifully.
  5. Yes! Especially since last season they had a bunch of Karlee clones as models for the challenge to design a dress for her to wear at an event, down to the blond hair. That would be a perfect way to actually directly compare how designers address a very specific challenge.
  6. I grew to dislike Tim so much by the end, Christian still comes out far ahead IMO. But I wish he would give more constructive criticism rather than, "Dooooo we like this?" kind of remarks. He has a wealth of practical first-hand knowledge, both as a contestant and a successful designer with a varied clientele. For example, he could have made more suggestions or at least hints about visualizing how their garments would look sitting on while on camera. He seems to stray sometimes too far from helpful warnings, such as reminders about how unforgiving some fabrics can be, to just snarky varia
  7. Is anyone also watching The Great British Baking Show? There is a woman on the latest season named Lizzie who looks like a perfect Katie customer.
  8. I thought Nina only said that she always knew which outfit was Katie's (not automatically a complement), but this time had no clue. I was irked at Elaine's "We're waiting for you to show us who you are." They know exactly what Katie designs, as she's sent clown clothes down the runway every week except this one. It might have been rather amusing to see what Katie would have designed if not damped down, and see that walking next to Octavio's purple ruffle blimp.
  9. As soon as the two bottom teams were obvious, you could practically see Octavio planning out his defense and how he was going to try to blame Katie. I recognized all the references Aaron, made including knowing that Michelle Kwan did an exhibition number to "Fields of Gold" after she won the silver and lost to Tara. I would think these kinds of assignments would be what designers aspire to, and yet so many did so badly at it. Did they even look at the photos of Tara and Johnny and see what they wear? The two safe dresses were terrible, IMHO, although the men's jackets were nice.
  10. Ugh. I hate the save. It's never done for it's stated purpose, but for DRAAAAAMMAA and pathos. I can't think of a single recipient, either from Tim or Christian, who actually deserved it for the supposed reasons.
  11. I just rewatched S2. Emmett was in hot pink. He was eliminated that episode and as he was leaving, he turned around and asked, "Was it the shirt?"
  12. They said it was for the pairs short program. I don't like white and off-white together, so I hope they change Johnny's shirt to either a champagne or gold. For once I was in agreement with the top and bottom pairs. Octavio completely disregarded the brief. I think he heard voluminous and blocked out the "not too." He also thinks black is a color. He steamrolled over Katie; she did try to contradict him, but not hard enough. But I doubt anything Katie came up with on her own would have been appropriate either. Nothing she's done has been high end or sophisticated. I just can't
  13. Of course the designers want Mimi or DD. They have no figures at all, are stick straight, no boobs and so designers can hang anything on them. PR should stop the self-congratulatory patting themselves on the back regarding how "inclusive" they are by including plus-sized models. There is no attempt I've seen on any designers part to actually do something other than make a bigger size garment, regardless of how it's often the exact opposite of what is needed to flatter a bigger figure. The last time I think that happened was Uli in S3 who designed a nice outfit in the Mom challenge.
  14. Which judge was it that said the bathrobe was a red carpet outfit? I demand they wear one to their next event. I liked the print for the robe, BUT IT WAS A ROBE. Maybe a high-end look robe? Robe was fine but looked really odd over that sparkly wierd dress and pants. Scratching my head at how Prajje's was in any way, shape or form fresh or innovative. Boo judges. No more talk of relatives at all, or sob stories of any kind. Boo producers. Boo judges for encouraging any of that. Darren was even flirting with his graphic designer. Does he have a syndrome or something?
  15. I agreed with both too, although I'd have to admit the red gown was the worst. I was just happy to see Kenneth gone. Katie's was refreshing in a sea of dark gowns. I think she went a bit too far for it to be wearable, but the evil doll theme came across great. I'm glad she got a shout-out. This was the first episode where I missed having a host. I don't like Elaine at all, and Nina doesn't seem comfortable in the "you're out" role. I hope they don't keep asking the winner how this makes them feel. EYE-ROLL. I don't care how it make them feel, and neither should Nina. Or it's obvi
