Project Runway 7, Episode 12: Yawning at the Circus

I don't know why, but I found this last episode particularly boring. I mean, they went to the circus! That should have been fun. Instead, all of their outfits, except Anthony's accident in polyester, looked the same to me.

The Chosen One

The man can do no wrong. Sure, I can't stand him, but he makes good clothes. He makes them well. The judges clearly think he is the messiah. He set out to make the best dress of the season and Michael used those exact words to describe it. Being likable might not be a prerequisite for being a great fashion designer, but I think the show has some serious problems if they have two winners in a row that the audience isn't rooting for. Clearly though, he is going to win.

The Pointlessness

What is the point of having Jay and Mila compete in a run-off for the third spot? There is none. They both get to show at fashion week. If they didn't know that at the time, the certainly knew it before the final two episodes taped. Neither has a chance at winning and surely they both realize that. If they weren't good enough to earn the third spot outright, they're not going to win. Seth Aaron has an outside chance at winning if he has a good day and The Chosen One slips up. So what? Jay and Mila get to compete for the chance to have their runway show aired on TV. Anyone who really wants to can go to ProjectRungay right now and see both collections. It's pointless. Pointless pointless pointless pointless.

I don't really have anything else to say about the episode. I'm bracing myself for the inevitable.

  1. Cirque du Soleil would have been a more interesting inspiration. I know they didn't have to be literal but they were. BLAH. And I agree SO BORING! I think it is strange that they keep the focus on the big deal about showing at Fashion Week when we ALL know that many, many, many, many, many of them show at Fashion Week. It is not possible to suspend my knowledge of that fact any further.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
