I think Pnina may have pissed some folks off. I don't know when this article was written, but it mentions that she tried to badmouth a dress that belonged to another designer when the client liked the other dress better. The link is here. Scroll down to where it says "Trunk shows can be good or bad."
Yep. I'm rewatching season one right now, and they are often more than three brides per show. In addition, the consultants are very well versed (except for Claudia, she's a delusional moron), and there are wedding photos from every bride that is shown, even if it is for a couple of minutes. The family members are thoughtful with their criticisms and no one really seems out to be an ass on purpose. There is also no one asking "Are you saying yes to this dress?" I do miss Randy though.
And, I caught a glimpse of 1st season Pnina. Wow. She looks younger, less greasy, and she can actually move her face. I thought she looked familiar and wasn't sure until I heard her voice.
