bibblebop October 10, 2014 Share October 10, 2014 (edited) Ugh. Just ugh all over this show. -- I dont love Korina by any means, but after one day, heck, one week, I'd still be pretty raw about being eliminated. MOST contestants on this show are not eliminated in a one hour challenge, I can think of only one other time it was done. And sorry, but I'd be super frustrated too if during that one hour challenge, the contestant who has construction issues was bale to use a mega sewer to help with the look. -- I think Sean read Korina wrong. Her attitude was way more "I want out of this situation and dont want to be here" than "I am above all this" And frankly, its sort of refreshing to see a contestant say "This isn't cool by me, and Id like to be excused from this because its raw and I hope you understand that." While it isn't as gracious an act as Emily, who really is just such a good soul, it WAS as polite as it could be under the circumstances. She said she wanted out, she said why, she explained herself. I wouldn't want to rework my losing project that I had faith in, against a contestant who I thought had an unfair advantage either. -- I call out Tim/production actually. At that point, he would have to know Char picked Korina's look, and that the two of them would work together. This was a conversation that could have happened with Korina off camera to explain "Look, you are going to have to work with Char, etc" but clearly that didn't happen. So yeah, again, if I were Korina, I would feel put into the crosshairs. -- NOT EVERYONE needs to act as graceful or be amazing in an exit. I think it is important to acknowledge that different people take rejection differently. So calling someone out for not behaving with the grace others muster, still not relevant to me. It doesn't mean others dont want it as much for sure, and Korina's self perceived special snowflake quality doesn't make her better, but no, I wont deny her the right to feel awful about it and vent. Plenty of other people have vented on this show. Other things -- I dont understand the up close looking at the garments bit. With so many one day challenges. ALL THE CLOTHES are sewn badly. (Notable exception: Kini) So for Zac to always be lifting up skirts and touching on the models is a very creepy thing. I feel as if this segment was added to let Tim gripe or throw people under the bus. HE NEVER says "oh, you hated that? I led that contestant down the wrong path (In this case Kini adding the circular ruffles into the bottom of the skirt) or "Oh, I hated that and told her to remove it, but she kept it and you liked it?" -- I miss Kors. He was/is an industry veteran who gets the BUSINESS of fashion in a way Posen just doesn't. In a way that allowed for looks that skewed older were still sometimes ok. With quips that never landed about the person or seemed hateful. Petty, yes. B$tchy, yes.. but i always got the feeling the only thing Kors was truly offended by was awful fashion. Garcia and Posen seem truly MEAN by comparison. -- Awful season overall. And I never thought I would say this, but yeah, I guess I will finish ti up to see who wins, but I never want to watch another season with Tim. I'll move on, or catch All Stars with Joanna Coles who, in another thing that I thought Id never say, I am liking more now. How much this show has fallen. Oh well.
