UTG s1e1 • Who Is Under The Gunn? • 16 January 2014
Did you like PR sans Heidi Klum? It vaguely reminded me of Fashion Star, but in a good way. Here's what happened: This would have been season 13 of Project Runway, but when she became unavailable, the proceeded with a few tweaks. Filmed at FIDM (like season PR6,) Tim Gunn serves as host and overall mentor. The first 2 episodes show fifteen contestants being whittled down to 12, and those 12 get assigned a mentor, either Uncle Nick Verreos, Mondo Guerra or Anya Ayoung-Chee, all popular and successful prior PR alumni.
Except, I may obliterate one of them for saying Gretchen deserved the s8 win over Mondo. (Team Mondo here.)
Natalia designs, constructs, changes course and re-drapes a few times. That can't be good! Shan brings out a bomber jacket in no time. His pattern use scares me.

All three mentors fight over Michelle, who chooses Mondo. Anya & Nick want Shan, he goes with Anya. All 3 want Blake, who selects Anya. Mondo blurts out Camila, and she goes with him, even though Nick wanted her, too. Anya and Nick both want Brady, and he joins Anya's flock. Nick names Oscar, he wants to refine his look.
