"Well That Was Anticlimatic"
LAST EDITED ON 10-08-10 AT 02:21 PM (EST)

So the big cheating scandal was just Ivy being her miserable bitter self. Here I was expecting something big and got Ivy making an unfounded accusation from three or four challenges ago.

Did appreciate the hysterical edit of Ivy talking about Karma and cutting to a scene of her being hit in the eye with a sewing machine projectile.

The challenge itself was pretty boring, as were the clothes the designers made. I felt going in to the episode that Christopher was going home, he hadn't won a challenge like all the other contestants still standing and hadn't shown any great creativity in any previous challenge. Even though Michael C's outfits were easily the worst in my opinion, I got the distinct feeling this episode's outcome was predetermined - Chris was going no matter what so they could get to the final five they wanted.

Much as I don't like Andy, his clothes did look the best on the runway so I think he deserved to win. Not that that is saying much since there was nothing outstanding on the runway. Amazing how perfectly it worked out for the judges - with six designers left they had three they liked and three they disliked. Hmmm, what a coincidence. I will say that Andy's designs looked better apart than standing next to each other. Together it did have a Halloween skeleton effect.

April is becoming the Sylvia Plath of fashion design. Black, gray, depressing pieces only.

Note to Contestants, never, ever, invoke karma.

Karma is listening and knows how to make sewing machines (or whatever else is available) throw shrapnel.

Is is me or are April and Gretchen pretty much interchangable. Other than April will have some tailoring in it somewhere and be a darker shade.

I can't see both of them making it to the finale, they tend to like more variation in the final three than 30 year old bohemian vs slightly younger darker gothy bohemian.

Word is the hoodie in the winning collection had to be changed, almost identical to a logo used by another line. http://bloggingprojectrunway.blogspot.com/2010/10/andys-hoodie.html

Yegads! The only collection that could have won was Andy's. The rest could have all been eliminated, though Christopher's was definitely the worst.

Honestly, I have no idea how April was in the top. Her stuff was horrible! It looked like fuggin' old bedsheets or tablecloths draped on.

While I did not like Michael C.'s colors, I thought his hoodie was awesome!

I want to stab Gretchen in the eye with the sewing machine shrapnel!

Ivy is def. a bitter c**t!!!

I think Andy's was the best of the lot, although Mondo's wasn't bad. April and Gretchen were in the middle for me, with April better than Gretchen. Gretchen really needs to understand the difference between constructive criticism and complaining.

As for Christopher, I could understand why he went. Although the outfits Michael C. designed were in questionable taste, at least they weren't as boring as those of Christopher. Besides, Christopher was one of the middle-of-the-road designers, good but not great.

I think Michael C. will be out next. Andy and Mondo will both go into Fashion Week with April and Gretchen fighting it out for that third spot.

Great ep! Loved it! Though I admit it WAS anticlimatic! But Ivy being such a transparent witch and then getting hit in the eye with something was delicious. And Michael's smile was great!

What awful people! But didn't the teaser also show a moment when Tim told someone they were "banned from Project Runway?" And did I miss that scene? Or is that a teaser for a FUTURE episode? AND, when are Ivy's lips going to fall off? She is SO toxic!!!!

Actually I couldn't believe they brought back people who were so sabotaguing to Michael C's emotions. Couldn't they have picked some other people to come back instead? Strange choice when the producers knew how nasty these people can get. And even though they didn't say anything, the other returnees were culpable because they let her go on!

What a dreadful dull challenge. Heidi's line is so BLAH, but no one really did anything worth mentioning within the constraints except for Mondo. And I still wouldn't wear any of those clothes. And does Gretchen think all women are a size 6? WHO in their right mind would have worn those shirred and cinched up skirts out in public? I did like the see through tops though (but not for a workout!)

Andy's pieces did show some initiative, but I still thought they were terrible. The way the lines sagged in the dress at crotch - bleah. But the outline of the dress was nice.


Not that I have an opinion one way or another ;)

It was all blah after that whole build up! But it had me singing "Poison Ivy" all night long! Hadn't even thought about that song in years, but it sure fit the bill!

Too bad there isn't a song about 'Evil Gretchen' to go along with this season...Anyway, I just don't get this show any more. This was probably the closest to what I figured would hit the runway for Heidi's 'active wear', but April's clothes? Who wears that? Not even my 16 year old grand daughter! They looked more like clubbing clothes than what you'd wear to and from the gym. Just don't get the hoopala about her designs.

And hoping that Gretchen's attitude will bring her the boot really soon. She is the 2nd contestant on PR that has really PO'd not only the judges but Tim. And that girl went on to the finale. Guess they try to stay fair, but how fair is it to US?? WE are the ones who actually buy that stuff! Well, not me, personally.

Anyway, glad this is almost over. It's been a weird season, and YES, what happened to Tim saying someone was banned from the show forever??? I heard that, too!

I skipped the episode, but my daughter made me watch the runway. Ugh. Christopher deserved to go, but Michael C. could have gone too. No one deserved to win.

Sorry to hear that the "controversy" was just Ivy being Ivy, but I expected little from the production staff, and they always deliver even less. All they have to do is leave BMP in charge and they'll kill the show for sure.

After looking at Heidi's New Balance collection on Amazon, I see why she wanted this challenge. She needs help. Seriously, I've never seen such such a drap collection.

I agree that this challenge was boring. I think the designers thought it was boring, too. I wouldn't be surprised if they felt trapped, especially after Heidi visited the work room. "Why not just use the material from my line?" she asked Gretchen. Because, Heidi, it sucks. Why was Mondo rude to you? Because, Heidi, YOU suck.

The drama was the only thing that made it interesting. We've had such fun bashing Poison Ivy. I would have loved it if Tim had kicked her out of the work room. I can't wait for the reunion show. I'd love to see Ivy get crushed.

I'd like to see Michael C win - just so we could see Ivy evey more crushed!

I realize editing may be playing a part in all of this - but...
I just don't get the Michael C hate.

When Andy was announced the winner, Michael looked genuinely happy for him; Mondo looked jealous.

It's funny how differently so many of us see things. I couldn't tell if Mondo looked jealous, to be honest, but I was assuming he couldn't possibly be jealous since he had just made history by winning three in a row. He just seemed relieved that he came up with a successful design after the criticism from Heidi.

April also doesn't like Michael C. or thinks he gets more credit than he deserves. She gave Ivy props for what she said to Michael. Gretchen and Valerie just seemed over the drama but it really killed me when Gretchen said to Michael to just concentrate on his designs, or whatever. Two-faced much?

Yeah, one of the criticisms of Christopher's was his clothes looked "cheap". It was your fabric Heidi.

I saw her line before I saw this show and I kept thinking that her line must look different than what I saw. Heidi dresses so flamboyantly and in bright colors, so I was excited when I heard she had a line for New Balance. It is dull, dull, dull, although orange MC Hammer pants are not going to help it. Neither are Spanx worn on the outside.

I have to say that after the buildup for the cheating, I agree with you all that Miss Bitter just made herself look really, really stupid on national tv. Loved the Karma kickback though. heh heh heh.

As for the "fashions" (and I use that term loosely,) it was a whole lot of fugly in a never ending parade of yuck - which I didn't really understand until I followed Tahj's lead and looked up the New Balance online. That line is a whole lot of fugly in a never ending parade of boring.

LOL, kind of makes you see why Gretchen was trying to use something other than that horrible, drab, craptastic fabric.

This brings out the 'unrealistic' expectations made on the designers.

How long do designers usually spend on a design?
Thinking it out & drawing it...
carefully choosing fabric & notions...
actual construction of the garment...

This show give them a day or two at most. It's not realistic to expect someone's best work in that short a period of time.

At least they give them a few months to prepare for a runway show if they make it to that point.

And yet it's amazing in most cases what they've been able to do in so short a time, don't you think? That's what I love about this show. It's rather ironic that they do some of their best work under pressure yet often fall flat when given lots of time and money in preparing for the final runway show.

That is true.
I used to sew a lot.
But I was using a store bought pattern - never designed by myself or had to cut a pattern for a design.
So, give me the pattern, & I'll whip it out for you in a few hours.
