TAR23, Recap Leg 1, 9/29/13

Welcome to Leg 1! We’re back to TAR after a hiatus, and it couldn’t come soon enough.  This time, we are traveling through Los Angeles.  For goodness sake, I know that LAX is a hub, but can we PLEASE start in a different city?  We only get to see the United States twice a season, since we (thankfully) do not do Family Edition anymore.  This time, teams are being driven by stagecoach to the Melody Ranch Motion Picture Studio.   (Toyouke: “Is it sad that even though this season is full of famewhores and I already hate this opening after 10 seconds, I'm still excited about this show?”)  The eleven teams are: (click for more)

Project Runway 9/26/13--"Next Generation..." summary

Previously on Project Runway: it was the “real woman” challenge, and for the second year running no one was an asshole about it. I know! But we couldn’t celebrate that because Ken and Alexander are jerks. Mostly Ken, but Alexander started something he didn’t want to finish and then pled fear for his safety. Ken should never have been cast on this show. So once he started screaming at the production assistants the end was in sight and he was quickly eliminated. Ken claimed on Twitter he threw the challenge, which I guess maybe he could have because he made sure to listen to his client and buy the “ugly” fabric she wanted. I don’t think it was that ugly, but whatever. Even if you threw the challenge, does it have to be done when random super fans are having the experience of a lifetime? Can’t you make an ugly dress some other time? Anyway, Ken is finally gone and Helen won because she got the skinny nerd girl. Is this show over yet? (click for more)

TAR23, Recap Leg 0, 9/23/13

Welcome back to the Emmy Award Winning Amazing Race!  Wait, we lost this year?  Oh well, I’m sure we lost to a fantastic show.  What, we lost to The Voice?  Well, THAT will have to be fixed.  Miss me?  I thought so.  First off, we have some excellent countries on the list, including visits to Chile, Norway and the United Arab Emirates!  We’re at eleven teams, so no monkey business from the producers.  Also, no twists that I have heard through the grapevine.  And Toyouke is nearby to throw in her two cents. (Toyouke: “It's in whatever order I feel like. . . because I don’t care about half these teams.”)  The eleven teams are:

Project Runway 9/19/13--"Project Runway SuperFan!" summary

Previously on Project Runway: the designers were told to make clothes for “the modern Southern woman.” No one knew what that meant. Apparently to the producers it means plaid. Bradon won, and I’m not sure how they are going to sell that plaid complicated dress in a department store but whatever. Ken’s head exploded because he is from the South and he is convinced that no one he’s ever seen at home would wear anything the top three made. The bottom three were told to go back and make something new in an hour. Dom remade her dress entirely and they told her she would also have her dress sold in stores, which is not really fair to Bradon. Although it was a cute dress. Ken’s dress was shiny and tacky but since he’s great drama Jeremy was sent home instead. (click for more)

Project Runway 9/12/13--"Let's Do Brunch" summary

Previously on Project Runway: it was time to design for Heidi’s activewear collection. Woo. Of course this involves making everyone do physical activity. Helen tried to ask Tim a question sneakily, only everyone saw her do it, and then Ken tried to ask her about it. So she told him, but with attitude, so he got bitchy and then Helen got bitchy and because no one would shut up, it ended with her calling him Sandro part 2 and him threatening her. Magically he felt bad and apologized and is now cheerful. Whatever. Helen then won the challenge, because her jacket was long? Had tails? Something. Then Karen was out, because clearly she is more boring than Ken. Also she made baggy sweats and that was against the secret requirements or something. (click for more)

Project Runway 9/5/13--"Having a Field Day" summary

Previously on Project Runway: the designers were forced to pick out shoes, none of which were that great, and make outfits to go with them. Some people (Kate, Dom) made horrible clothes but were safe. Both Alexander and Miranda made red plaid pants, but Alexander’s were nice enough to keep him safe. Helen made a simple black dress with a cape, so she won. Miranda’s pants were bad enough that she lost. That’s about all that happened. (click for more)
