I absolutely loved how excited Uncle Tim was about last night's runway show. He was positively giddy, running around praising everyone and talking about his preference for wooly animal balls. It was the most adorable moment of reality TV of the week.
But I guess the most important notion that came out of this week's Project Runway show was this: Gretchen, you a bitch. My goodness. Apparently, having the winning design two weeks in a row turns you into some reality television Frankenstein monster made partly of Tim Gunn's wisdom, Danielle Staub's delusion, Kate Gosselin's smugness, and Angelo-from-Top-Chef's desire to "help" his fellow contestants. Monster Gretchen must be stopped.
Today's challenge was one of those "here's some shit; make a dress out of it" challenges. The designers were dropped in the middle of Happy Birthday Hell (AKA a store called Party Glitters) and told they would have to design a look using only materials found in the store. Uncle Tim also warned that they should avoid cloth-like fabrics such as tablecloths because the judges think they're boring. Casanova, of course, "didn't" "understand," and bought only tablecloths and adorable stuffed animals that he could turn into a cheap Cruella de Vil stole.
Most of the other designers had very good days. It was honestly one of the best runway shows we've been privy to in pretty much decades. Tim was so excited, he nearly busted a wooly animal ball.
What did you think of the show? Are you rooting for anyone yet (I'm seriously warming up to Turtle)?
