Project Runway All Stars 3/15/18--"Rock Your Face Off" summary

Previously on “Project Runway All Stars”: Zac Posen showed up to ask everyone to make a red carpet look with their “signature technique”. Somehow they would use this to make their garments obvious. So when the gown walks down the runway, the judges should know it's yours. Alyssa continued to dress in an unflattering manner. Anne had better things to do so the contestants had to critique each other. Sure. Anthony won for sculpting a nice gown, and while Fabio also did great, the prize was to dress someone for a Lifetime Movie so Anthony fits that better anyway. Josh got really cocky about how he was going to finish no problem, and then didn't finish, and finally got sent home. (click for more)

Top Chef 3/8/18--"Finale" summary

Previously on “Top Chef”: the final Quickfire required catching your own fish. The final three all managed to do this, and then we learned you have to cook trout to well done. Joseph won, and his advantage was to pick his sous chef and assign the others for the Elimination. Make a vegetarian dish for a Food and Wine Classic event, cooked on a big cauldron filled with coals. Joseph won again, with baby zucchini and pesto. Hipster Joe went home, for fancy toast (ha).

Project Runway All Stars 3/8/18--"Posen on the Red Carpet" summary

Previously on “Project Runway All Stars”: everyone must be “inspired” by Isaac and work in color. I actually don't think they were supposed to copy Isaac so much as they wanted to advertise the exhibit he had at the Jewish Museum. Helen made some tricky pants, but was defeated by Stanley and his off the shoulder top and weird hip peplum that he made. I didn't like that peplum thing because even though it was under the skirt and not visible, it made a weird line in the skirt. Merline was finally sent home for making weird folded garments in fabrics that cannot be folded properly. (click for more)

Top Chef 3/1/18--"A Little Place Called Aspen" summary

Previously on “Top Chef”: everyone finally got their challenge with Rocky Mountain oysters. You know you were waiting for it. Hipster Joe won by making fried and braised testicles, and won an extra half hour to work in the Elimination challenge. Everyone got to greet family members, who made family dishes for everyone. The Elimination challenge was to reinvent these dishes. Hipster Joe was very emotional, because the dish(es) his dad made were from his mom, who has passed away. Adrienne deconstructed her mom's gumbo, and everyone loved it so much she won. Sadly Carrie went home, mostly for nitpicking reasons (they wanted more sauce). (click for more)

Project Runway All Stars 3/1/18--"Mizrahi Madness" summary

Previously on “Project Runway All Stars”: the designers were told to make avant garde looks inspired by a planetarium show. They actually got two days for it too! Stanley won with a simple but striking dress and a cage over his model's face. I thought Anthony's pants were awesome, but that's fine. Josh got all salty about how he was in the bottom this week, because I guess he forgot he won last week, but of course he was not sent home. Kimberly was sent home for making a capelet and a sheer skirt that didn't go together. (click for more)

TAR 30, Recap Leg 12, 2/21/18

Welcome to Leg 12! Last time, on That Crab Just Bit Me!, 4 teams raced from Thailand to Hong Kong. Henry and Evan had a Speed Bump, and managed to move into first, because Henry speaks Chinese. Conor melted down something awful when he got bit by a crab, had to speak Chinese, and then went crazy looking for hidden clues that didn’t exist. At any rate, this slowed them down and Indy Car was eliminated on the course. Which leaves us with Henry and Evan, the dating debaters from Yale, who were nearly eliminated by the first Head to Head, and then bounced back from being both U-Turned and Speed Bumped; Cody and Jessica, Team Big Brother, who fell in love in the BB House and have basically made it this far thanks for Cody; and Kristi and Jen, the freestyle skiiers who, as a team, have never placed below third on the entire race. (Toyouke: “This is a tough final three. Except for Jessica. “) Three teams remain. Who will win The Amazing Race 29? (click for more)

TAR 30, Recap Leg 11, 2/21/18

Welcome to Leg 11! Last time, on Elephants and Bullfrogs and Scorpions, Oh My!, 4 teams raced from Bahrain to Thailand. Teams had to either catch bullfrogs or measure elephants, and then eat scorpions. And everyone was fairly successful, except for Yale, who were slow and finished last. But it was the last non-elimination leg, so they are still in the race. Who will be eliminated. . . next? (click for more)
