Last night’s Project Runway socked us with a bunch of hits to the face—not only were two designers sent home, but also contestants already booted from this season were brought back to help them and designers from previous seasons were brought back to judge. It was like a hate sandwich. Toss in expectant melodrama between teams and personalities whose egos have outgrown their actual talent, and the whole thing was as if reality TV hit us in the eye on purpose!
The breakdown: Designers still in the competition were paired with already auf-d contestants and then directed to create an avant-garde look inspired by one of their astrological signs. While this assignment loosely translates to “do whatever the hell you want,” with this crop of lusterless sewers it actually bought everyone one-way tickets to Snoozetown. Judging would be two-fold: one vote by designers of season’s past and another by Heidi Klum and Co. Lame, right? But did you forget we said that two votes somehow meant two ejected two designers? Hooray everyone!
