Ugghhh, yes - that smirk. I've been tired of her for a while. Just don't think she's shown anything to justify her smirkiness. Chris was my favorite, so I'm sad to see him go. I didn't think his tattoo was the worst. If the judges were going to use which looked like a bouquet as a judging point, Tim's looked less like a bouquet to me. Too bad Chris didn't choose to do different flowers or at least different colored flowers instead of 3 of the same. But, I guess now I am completely behind Team Cleen (I have actually surprised myself with how much I just...like Cleen. Unexpected! He's just kind of goofy and doesn't seem malicious and seems to value talent in his team members. And he makes me laugh. I think I liked him in his 1st season, but had forgotten that in his 2nd season.). I like Teej & Tim, but didn't like them joining Amanda to gang up on Chris. And Christian is just not a good coach. I know the team complains about his attitude, but when he speaks up they bash him for that. When he doesn't speak up, they bash him for that. Doesn't seem like he can win. And - earlier in the season, didn't he explain to Christian that he kind of needs a little time to himself to wrap his head around things (like the color realistic tattoo) instead of getting into it with the whole group right away? Yet it never seemed like they gave him that space - like sitting there telling him how unfair it was that they had to worry about him and his tattoo instead of focusing on their own. I can see how it would be frustrating from both sides, for sure. Overall, I just think Chris would have been better off on Team Cleen from the start. Or, it would have gone the same way even then - who knows?
I felt like Team Cleen got a little too much power from winning that first challenge - particularly with getting to set different style/subject matter for each head-to-head battle. Wouldn't have been as bothered if they had to pick ONE that everyone had to do. I didn't really think the Amanda/Tiffer head-to-head was as close as Nunez was making it out to be. Now, this may sound silly considering the subject matter was cats in biker gear, BUT Amanda's tattoo bothered me because it didn't really look like her jacket was the right size for her cat - looked much too large. Funny that the judges mentioned Tiffer's helmet looking too small, but didn't mention that. Just thought Tiffer won it clearly.
Have the judges always been so fond of backgrounds? I feel like they've bashed people in past seasons for throwing in unnecessary backgrounds. This season everything needs to have one and look like a sticker. Or is my memory just faulty?
