Project Runway All Stars 12/18/14--"Mix and" summary

Previously on Project Runway All-Stars: a weird gimmick with dice meant that everyone had a specific fabric and a specific event to design for. This ended up being the most unimportant criteria ever because I don’t think anyone cared. Sonjia won for making a tacky gold dress. Gunnar just failed so he was eliminated. (click for more)

Top Chef 12/17/14--"Big Sausage" summary

Previously on “Top Chef”: everyone had to make chowder, which was expected. I mean, they’re in Boston. Anyway, Katie lost and it was a Sudden Death Quickfire so she had to battle. They brought back all the eliminated contestants for no reason and they threw in George because he was the first out. Dumb. He was so terrible he didn’t even last a whole episode! Anyway, suddenly he’s better than Katie so she went home and he got to stay. So then the judges did the shopping for everyone, but they didn’t try to screw people as much as I thought they should be. Make dishes for Top Chef fans. Doug won for being awesome. Adam scalded shrimp in oil and that was a fail so he got sent home. Or technically to Last Chance Kitchen. (click for more)

TAR25, Recap Leg 11, 12/12/14

Welcome to Leg 11! Last time, on Our Oxen Are Definitely Still Broken, teams journeyed from Singapore to Manila, where somehow the Wrestlers took the lead, and Jim’s amazing attention to detail slowed down the Dentists once again.  A switchback caused a slowdown to all the teams, but it was the Wrestlers who ended up in last, but were not eliminated.  Who will be eliminated. . . next?

Top Chef 12/10/14--"Clean Up in Aisle 2!" summary

Previously on “Top Chef”: Restaurant Wars! One team was awesome and one team sucked, as always happens. Doug was the executive chef of his team, and he won for making pork and beans. That was the good team. The bad team had Katie for an executive chef, and she flailed and was useless. Keriann’s dessert was terrible, and set up weirdly, and then she didn’t leave an example and no one asked her if it was OK if they changed it. Then it was still terrible. In the end, Keriann was sent home. Yeah, that wasn’t her dish, but it’s not like she was going to make the finals or anything. (click for more)

TAR25, Recap Leg 10, 12/5/14

Welcome to Leg 10! Last time, on Surfin’ Through Singapore, five teams race to Singapore.  Cyclists start strong by getting a better flight, but then lose a surfing Fast Forward to the surfers, who finish first.  Even with a clever misdirection from the Wrestlers, Kym and Alli find themselves in last place and are eliminated.  Misti and Jim were safe, and allow the Save to go unused.  Who will be eliminated. . . next?

Project Runway All Stars 12/4/14--"Designing for the Duchess" summary

Previously on Project Runway All-Stars: everyone was supposed to make party dresses about their love lives. It was just as vague as it sounds. Also thanks to MoHub for pointing out to me that it wasn’t Ben who wrote the love letter on the dress that time. Helen’s dress had weird droopy rings of fabric around her arms but she won. Sure, I guess. Kate’s dress was a terrible color and the hem was unfinished so she was eliminated. (click for more)

Top Chef 12/3/14--"Restaurant Wars" summary

Previously on “Top Chef”: cooking with cranberries, which resulted in a Quickfire win for Katie, and then a “traditional” Thanksgiving meal cooked outside in the summertime. Fun. Gregory stumbled, but survived. Katsuji won, and then Stacy lost and was sent home. It seems like so long ago. (click for more)
