Last week on Project Runway ...
The remaining 9 designers, in 3 teams of 3, raised their own funds
in order to make 2 cohesive fall looks, with at least one piece of outerwear.
The dream team was Christopher, Gunnar and Sonjia,
as they got along and did decent work.
Sonjia won for her meticulous work on her coat.
Alicia was eliminated. Elena is grateful it isn't her.
Okay, before we start, I have a question. Isn't this Fabio Costa doing a cartwheel behind the screen at the beginning of each episode? This corresponds to something that legitimately happens on the show, yes? In years past, this would represent a weekly challenge win. We didn't see this when Fabio won before, so ... does that mean he will win another challenge? I've been watching like a (blind) hawk, but I haven't seen anything yet.
Maybe it's a fake out? Maybe Fabio doesn't win another weekly challenge?
Who drew this? It's ADORABLE, huh?
Christopher interviews that he can't believe that they are at the halfway point.
That's because you're three quarters of the way through the weekly challenges, honey.
There are 12 episodes before the finale. This is episode 9.
9 is NOT half of 12, not even during season eight.
I'll give you four guesses who gets the Loser Edit & goes home.
The first three don't count.
You are going to learn SO much about me and Gunnar this episode.
Oh, please, Dmitry is going to make the same old simple dress.
Why are we even here? You won't tell us the challenge.
Is this where I do the "Cabbage Patch" dance?
No, not just yet. First we have some product placement.
and THAT is how it's promoted, sweetie.
The designers pose for pictures at Mood.
I'm listening to what the judges say.
Finale, here I come!
In fact, everyone manages a decent print,
and nearly every one stays focused.
No canceled crotches this time around.
Or, maybe she's hugging harder than we think.
you, fowl attitude
towards "Real Women,"
be GONE !!!
catch up with family on the HP.
witness protection program?
... to still be alive?
Why do they have to look at each other through the HP?
Can't they just look directly at each other?
Oh, product placement, yes. Silly me.
Christopher whines that he can't come up with anything,
WITH HIS MOTHER THERE!
dead body covered with bugs?
It's MORE Ping!
from all the silliness that's been going on.
Whew, that was sane and normal.
You've GOT to be kidding me.
The hibiscus is my country's national flower.
I'll get all "Real Woman" on you if you dis me any further!
I can't believe Christopher's design is SO simple.
I can't believe Ven is paying homage to the menstrual cycle.
I can't believe Elena has a heart.
I can't believe I finally get to show myself without hair adornment.
Over on the runway, we see COLOR in the prints. Woo-hoo!
Take THAT, season nine!
Fabio and Elena are called out safe.
Melissa, Sonjia and Dmitry are the top 3.
Christopher, Ven and Gunnar are the bottom 3.
That makes sense. But .. what happens next?
Tim breaks his own rule and shares over on the runway, at HK's insistence.
Tim has always asserted that he wouldn't be talking to the judges
about what goes on in the work room.
Then we REALLY see something bizarre ...
Isn't Truly Scrumptious copyrighted?
I think the Urban Dictionary would call this "Prostitot" couture.
Your print was BORING. You are in.
Gunnar, you made a heartfelt, interesting print. You are out.
Dream big or go home!
Okay, *that* I can understand.
This, I cannot.
