Ricky is gone. The fact that Project Runway still has three episodes remaining is greatly cushioned by this fact. And though we can never get back the months lost to this Bravo Network waterboarding, we’re taking the teensiest victories where we can find them.
The only real takeaway from this week’s show is not that producers finally tired of Ricky’s sucky ways but that the glittery mess that is Sweet P’s was graciously granted a stay of execution. By most rights, she probably should have gone home instead. But no matter: it makes the math easier. Of those who are left—Sweet P, Rami, Christian, Jillian, and Chris—it’s quite obvious who’s talented enough to be in the final two. Which of course doesn’t presume actual talent at all.
