Project Runway 8/14/14--"A Suitable Twist" summary



Previously on Project Runway: you were supposed to imagine an outfit 20 years in the future, inspired by 20 years in the past. Yeah, it didn’t make a ton of sense to me either. Most people made really boring clothes for some reason. I’m not sure why, but it made for a boring runway. Amanda made some weird sheer top and bell bottoms, so the judges made sure to call her out for sucking (since she had immunity). Sandhya won again, for at least making a dress with metallic tubes that was interesting. Of course everyone is mad about it and faked their clapping. Korina didn’t even bother to fake clap, though, because I guess she forgot everyone would see that. Angela was eliminated for a pretty boring pink suit and also probably because she was headed for a mental breakdown. (click for more)

Project Runway 8/7/14--"Welcome to the Future" summary



Previously on Project Runway: we had both an unconventional materials challenge AND a team challenge lumped together. All had to make clothes out of “movie” items, which meant film reels and cellophane and whatever. Sandhya’s team was a disaster, not made any better by Sandhya’s immunity and initial idea of “let’s all just do whatever”, and when Hernan got snippy with her she went straight to Tim about it. Their team ended up on the bottom, because apparently using the same technique to make all three dresses is far too boring. Instead of blaming Hernan, who came up with the idea, everyone decided they hated Sandhya’s look the most, so that Carrie could be as passive-aggressive as possible when asked who should go home. This continued when Carrie was sent home. However the winner of the challenge was Amanda, who wrapped her model in cellophane and then hung string off her. It was terrible and now she’ll be full of herself. Ugh. (click for more)

Project Runway 7/31/14--"Unconventional Movie Nite!" summary



Previously on Project Runway: the producers brought 18 people to New York so they could get rid of 3 of them right away. I’m not sure why, but I guess so we can see Heidi and the judges doing things. Whatever. Then everyone got random ugly fabric and had to make something. Anything. This season’s Drama Queen quickly established himself, so when he was on the bottom we all knew he wasn’t going home. Also Amanda from season 11 (the teams season) returned for no reason. Actually I guess the reason is so she can pretend that she failed that season because she didn’t speak up, as her excuse for being a terrible person now. I am already tired of her obnoxious judgments. And THEN hot makeup guy Scott is gone! I know! So anyway, Sandhya wins, which, I didn’t like her dress that much but it’s fine, and drama queen Mitchell and Amanda hate it so that was satisfying. And then Mitchell was on the bottom but clearly he’s not leaving. Instead Jefferson is sent home for really bad shorts. (click for more)

Project Runway 7/24/14--"The Judges Decide" summary



Previously on Project Runway: some serious bullshit drama and casting that clearly shows that they don’t do psych evaluations anymore. I’m not super excited for this season, but I’m sure this particular episode will be OK. The first one usually is. But there seem to be 18 designers, which is too many. (click for more)

TAR24, Recap Leg 12, 5/18/14



Welcome to Leg 12! Last time, on Throwing the Wrong Type of Boot Is Really Problematic, teams raced from Spain to England and Wales.  Leo and Jamal had directional issues and ended up in last place, causing them to finish fourth for the second race in a row.  This season, we’ve had a Frankenteam.  Tension!  Frustration!  Competition!  And Challenge!  In the end we have three teams: Brendon and Rachel, who promised less crying and more baby making (Toyouke: “Rachel's popularity was gone before that U-Turn.”); Caroline and Jennifer, who managed to flirt their way through the race again while surviving two NELs and never winning a leg; and Dave and Connor, who self eliminated the first time they raced due to injury, but probably could have won anyway.  Who will win The Amazing Race 24?
