'Project Runway' recap: Hats on, hats off

There were promises of delicious weirdness last night, what with Casanova mock-threatening to quit this whole perro and pony show and Mondo making his alluring pronouncement on textile vocalization: “There’s a million, trillion fabrics to chose from and I think they all have voices. And I’m hearing them.” Yet the episode turned out to be low on bat-crap cuckoo — and, for that matter, sublime creations. (If ever there was cause to cut loose and go avant-garde!) Ivy recovered from her Lindsay Lohan syndrome dehydration to return to fully delusional consciousness (“Really?…Me and Gretchen not even being in [the top]?!”). We got to see the designers eat, eat, and eat some more. And Gretchen furthered slithered toward her status as the designer most resembling a poisonous snake in the grass.

The challenge this week was to create a look inspired by and worthy of existing in the same hemisphere as a series of fantastical hats made by big shot Irish milliner Philip Treacy. Though they oohed and ahhed themselves silly over the honor of working with creations from such an artiste, the designers all chose hats based on the model who was sporting them, rather than the appeal of the blessed headgear itself. All of them stuck with their previous models. The model you know is better than the hat you don’t, I guess.

It was clear as soon as the gang romped back into the workroom from Mood that Kristin was flailing in the sartorial deep end without the help of floaties. She got one of the most evocative hats — a big ol’ orchid — but complained that it was too literal. Say wha? How her particular piece of noggin garnish presented a trickier task than, say, Casanova’s abstract swoosh was lost on me. Even when she embraced her hat’s Georgia O’Keeffian, lady part-ish-ness (“It’s just a big vagina!”), she still had no clue what the heck she was doing. Gretchen offered her two cents on Kristin’s aesthetic, calling it “sloppy” and “not very thoughtful.” The self-proclaimed “force to be reckoned with” might be an annoying, egomaniacal pain in the arse, but in this case, she was an annoying, egomaniacal pain in the arse who was right.

Ah, but not for long! Backstage, following the runway show, Gretchen sat like the cackling mother hen she so desperately wants to be and sounded off on her picks for top and bottom three. She proclaimed that she’d wear every piece of Christopher’s outfit in a heartbeat — as if her stamp of approval was the be-all, end-all determination of worthy designs. Then she led the group in hating on both Michael C.’s copper dress and Valerie’s lovely red frock. Wrong and wrong! Lady, I’m not sure you should be doling out criticism after crafting a schizophrenic turd of an outfit that combined a shapeless print top with lace and pleather leggings. Oh, and what’s with the sudden Betty Crockering of the makeup?

But back to the runway show. Andy had immunity, so he and his hot pink Working Girl ensemble were in no danger. Peach finally graduated from drunken geriatrics to borderline chic; A.J. somewhat redeemed himself from last week with a cute black and white polka dot party dress; Ivy made another yawner in the key of beige hospital curtains; and Mondo sent another dispatch from his planet of nuttiness. (It’s a place where beautiful women wear mustaches. Okay, so maybe there was a little crazy last night.) And despite proving that he really does not get it or any imaginable variations of it (to Tim Gunn: “So the dress should be not wearable?”), that train wreck of tastelessness Casanova managed to stitch up a dress that didn’t appear to have escaped the psych ward of the best little whorehouse in San Juan. Yes, the black, “Donna Karan 1988” thing was on the dull side. But mierda if it didn’t get Casanova straight through to the next round. Maybe he really is a “cat with seven life” [sic] after all.

Perennial bridesmaid Valerie made another strong showing this week. Like the Not So Mad Hatter, I didn’t quite get where she was going with the outfit or what it had to do with the lacey black Treacy mask — until she explained that the dress’s low scoop front was a modern take on the classic Edwardian neckline. Ah-ha! I thought that was very clever.

Had Treacy been a bigger fan of Valerie’s red frock and white bolero, I’d like to think she would have made the top two, ’cause I don’t get how Michael D.’s corrugated-board get-up beat her. The red crinkle skirt had its charm, but that top just baffled me. No matter how much it evoked the sculptural, architectural quality of that humongous straw thing sitting atop his model’s head, it still looked like it came from the UPS store. And no, the fit was not good. Nope.

But in the battle of Michaels, it was Michael C. who whisked off with the win. The reliable supplier of sass who was so lost at the top of the hour that he was ready to “pack my f***ing bags” pulled himself out of the doldrums and churned out a pretty goddess dress that didn’t rock my world, but had the judges all but clutching their hearts in admiration. Philip the Hat Man appreciated how the shimmer of the copper fabric recalled the glimmer of the red (let’s face it, vaguely spermatazoid) hat. The fit was nice. The back was lovely. And somebody had to win. So why not the funny guy who sadly missed out on spending Father’s Day with his son Giovanni? Fair enough. I can tell you I was a lot happier for Michael C. than his sourpuss colleagues were — those folks who greeted him backstage with the lamest, limpest of applause. Clearly, his fans are few. “What the f***?” asked Ivy in confessional. “So, they loved yours, Michael?” cooed Gretchen in her yuckiest faux sweet voice. Then she smirked. Behind closed doors she sniped, “He’s a replicator. He’s not a visionary.” Sore losers, party of two!

On the opposite end of the criticism, cutie Christopher took a beating from the judges. I thought Heidi might cotton to his silver and black flowered jacket with leggings, if only for its superheroic shine capabilities. But she nein’d it for being too dark and sad. (She said this while wearing a staid black dress, mind you.) Her fellow judges agreed, Christopher was crushed, but he still managed to avoid the ax.

Of course, it’s not as if he merely squeaked by or anything — not with the double whammy of Madam Bunch It Till You Can’t Bunch That Shizz No More (Kristin) and Our Lady of Pampers (April). Honestly, both gals — Kristin with her slap-dash, amateurish black dress punctuated by rando pink panels and April with her white diaper and black zippered top — choked so hard Tim must have been ready to dial 911. Both were guilty of offensive uses of pink, but the stuff sticking out of April’s boy shorts was so sloppy it looked like her model had forgotten to remove the de-elasticized granny panties she secretly wears at night. (Or: three panties for a three-day weekend. Thank you, Sir Quips A Lot!) Plus, I’m sorry, but ass cheeks are never modern, on-trend, or whatever silly defense April attempted to lay on us. The bottom two garments were such failures they should have yielded a double elimination. But oddly, the judges didn’t lay the harsh on April as much as I’d expected. (Nina liked the top. Go figure.) So in the end, only Kristin got the boot. Hey, look at the bright side. She wanted a critique. And a critique she got! She wasn’t all that broken up about her auf’ing. Was it me or did she rather merrily trot out of the backstage area to clean up her workspace? Gracious loser, party of one!

What did you think? Did any of the designs impress you this week? Did you notice how much more effusively the designers cheered for Christopher than they did for Michael C.? Did you laugh at Peach’s comment about her short skirt not showing off “the good china”? How do you feel about Valerie’s measuring tape headband look? Should Michael D. know what “walking the precipice means”? Are you curious to know more about Ify’s bad attitude? And finally, did you roll your eyes or blot your eyes when Heidi walked onto the runway to the sounds of her hubby’s “Kiss from a Rose” while sporting — oh yes — a Philip Treacy rose on her head? Bonus points if you guess how I reacted!

    I know nothing about fashion, and every week it is proven to me time and time again. if I was a judge, Mondo would have been out. His outfit was so ugly and busy, that it dominated the hat. I could not take my eyes off the clothes and not in a good way either, it was a complete mess to me.

    But then again, I know nothing about fashion and it is proven to me every week.

    • Pinky Shears

      I was so disappointed that Michael D didn’t design a flowy dress that looked like toilet paper because his “hat” looked like a tushie :)

      • elr

        I think a lot of the hats called for something flowy or filmy. With a different color than black I think Kristen’s look would have been better.

    • Sue

      There’s a difference between knowing something about fashion & having good taste & common sense. I’m guessing you possess the latter.

    • Benoreno

      I long for the days when we had designers like Cristian Siriano and Chris March. Could you imagine the outfits they would’ve come up with to go with those hats? They would’ve been awesome.

      • Jen

        I was thinking the same exact thing! It really made me miss the seasons of yore.

      • dee

        …and Kara Saun. Those were the days of gorgeous threads on Project Runway. I hope they have some 2-day challenges so we can see some thoughtful, well-designed clothing this season.

    • Marti

      I am fascinated by Mondo’s stuff. Have no idea why but I love looking at it.

      • Xavier

        that about sums up how i feel about his work. he makes the show a lot more interesting and i hope he doesn’t get booted soon!

    • R3

      Mondo’s top reminded me of that outfit that got aufed in the first challenge (items from the suitcases).

    • Kitty

      I liked that mondo made something wacky like the hat, instead of the bland, safe stuff that most of the others went with. This was the challenge to get jiggy with things.

    • JenR

      I loved Mondo’s pants. I couldn’t wear them, but I loved looking at them.

  • Madd

    Was I really the only one who loved the winning look? And that girl with the bangs is beyond annoying.

    • jen

      I loved the winning look actually. I could have liked Christopher’s design had the leggings not been included. If it had been a jacket over a black dress or something I would have liked it better. But I loved Michael C’s design and I agreed with the judges that it was one of the only ones that complimented the hat which is hard to do when the hats were a bit out there.

      • jmb2933

        YES! I liked Christopher’s too if not for the leggings. He had a good thing going and he ruined it with the leggings and boots. I really hated the hot pink “working girl” look and Mondo’s explosion of animal poo. Gretchen needs to be knocked off her high horse!

      • seattleellen

        I agree, I was so pleased that Michael C. won! I truly was stunned by how rude/bitchy/catty his colleagues are. If the bad ratings are any indication, I can see why-this is not a group I particularly want to spend 90 min. with and the judges seem clueless. Casanova should be gone by now and the glad with the triple diapers got really lucky not to get booted. Those were the ugliest things ever. Perhaps Nina’s criticisms have softened due to her being pregnant. Ivy has got to go-her ego does not match her work and I also agree that Gretchen needs to get over herself. No wonder the one who got the boot was relieved-this is not a fun group to particularly watch-seems like more wackos than usual & I can’t imagine having to compete with them.

    • queue55

      You mean John Malkovich’s ugly twin?!lol

      • Julia

        Are you talking about Valerie? I think she is adorable and talented – and if she reminds me of anyone, it is Tracey Ullman, exactly.

      • ac

        I think he means Gretchen.

      • AM

        THANK YOU! That has been bugging me for some time now, of course it’s John Malkovich!

      • RBlues

        Or Woody Harrelson!

      • Chris

        Or Jim Carrey!

      • ariettty

        @Julia – Tracey Ullman – thank you, that’s exactly who I was trying to think of.

    • LGee

      No, I loved it too!

      • Dom

        Rachel December 9, 2011 I agree! It’s a guregoos dress black, one-shouldered, lace and sequins! You can’t go wrong. Thanks for checking out my blog, I will have to take a look at your giveaway!

    • Pinky Shears

      I loved it and I especially loved that the other “designers” hated it and him. Go Michael. His “hat” looked like Conception- an egg being attacked by two spermies. I was so ready for Kristen to go.

      • Bounce

        def time for Kristen to exit

    • Ceballos

      I liked it too – but then again, I like Michael C. because, in the first few weeks, he always seemed to say exactly what I was thinking.

      Did his dress reinvent the wheel? No, but it was definitely lovely, and I give him extra credit for pulling it out of his butt after his original soon-to-be debacle. His competitors were just extra bitter last night.

      • Bounce


    • Vivi

      I am a fan of Michael C. and a huge fan of his piece last night. All of the other contestants can fall back! Haters, party for 9!

    • really?

      yes, she is sooo annoying (but a good desinger and styler), however I call her the “Mullet”. Her hairstyle looks like a mullet to me.

    • Mac

      I think Casanova said it best when he said “every girl in Puerto Rico has one hanging in their closet” about the winning dress. It’s true! On South Beach, too! I looked very nice, but it was unoriginal to the extreme. My sister went down to Florida a couple of years ago with her friends and there are several pictures of her in a green dress that looked very much like the winning dress.

    • Svetlana

      I thought the winning dress was just okay. I completely disagreed with the judges top picks this week. Valerie’s dress itself was cute but the jacket was horrible and didn’t make any sense and I liked the top and skirt of the guy who won separately, but together they were awful. I loved A.J’s(??) polka dot dress and thought Ivy’s outfit was really beautiful and understated.

      • henrietta

        I agree; thought the winning dress was certainly lovely, but I’ve certainly seen it (or a very close variation thereof) a gazillion times before. I do agree, though, that it beautifully complemented the hat…which task appeared to bewilder many of the other designers. I really loved that neckline of valerie’s, thought it brilliant…don’t know how it could be worn by someone like heidi (or any woman with larger breastesses than valerie’s model had); tailoring would ruin the entire effect, IMO. And Gretchen! God. She’d better hope another exasperated designer doesn’t bury their shears in her eyeball the next time she admonishes one and all to clean up their stations…granted, she’s talented, but as someone else mentioned…if she’d been a contestant in siriano’s or march’s seasons? Not so much.

  • CoCo Chenille

    Some of the outfits were really nice but the hats were God-awful1 No wonder that Treacy guy didn’t rave about Valerie’s oufit. He has no taste! Michael C.’s was very pretty and actually matched his hat!

    • Pinky Shears

      Hey Coco. I don’t know how you could even call some of them hats. Some were just masks or “bows” and Heidi’s looked like she had been hit in the head with an axe and her brain matter was escaping :). The axe was still embedded and the handle was skyward.

      • CoCo Chenille

        Now there’s a visual! Why can’t fashion experts just says when something is ugly? Why do they have to be such sheep? Baaaaa…

      • Marci

        If the designers were told to design hats and they came up with those…? Michael Kors would have taken one look at that hideous orchid thing and laughed his A$$ off.

      • john_c

        Heidi’s taste of fashion has dropped to low level this year.

        Also, Nina’s taste is also lowered. Maybe it is because she is working for a less successful magazine. I have never heard of MC till I watch PR last season.

      • Al

        Hey CoCo, hey Pinky (not clever enough to come up with a different nom de plume) I thought those hats would have been interesting at a crazy hat party, but who would wear those in “real” life. (Besides maybe SJP) And Kristen’s dress looked like something I would have made and I and NO sewing skills…..

      • Jamie

        I so agree about the judges on this show. Sorry American Idol – the show that needs new blood on the judging panel is Project Runway. Good lord!! It’s getting to the point where I don’t know if I can watch this anymore. And sorry Ivy – your matronly beige sweater was no where near the top – in fact, I really thought she should have been sent home for being so BORING. It’s take the 3-day weekend panties over that granny sweater any day. And sorry, but that Puerto Rican dude just needs to go. Sorry, if you don’t speak English you shouldn’t be wasting our time having to watch you miss the point week after week after week. Go be a contestant on Projecto Runwayo in Puerto Rico.

      • Pinky Shears

        Hi Al. You mean “could have” because you never would have made that hitrocious Morticia Adams got mangled dress.

      • CoCo Chenille

        @Al — AL! Just like “Norm” but without the beer.

    • henrietta

      Those hats were god-awful??? God, not on my planet. Agreed, they’re not very wearable (at all) unless your name is sarah jessica parker…but I did think they were gorgeous works of art. I thought the challenge was to head into some wacked-out haute couture world, since that’s the world those hats exist in…but apparently I was wrong. Treacy mentioned something about “that’s not a daywear hat” more than once, so I guess at least HE thinks they should be worn to sunday brunch at JG Melon’s…

  • josephrileyland

    I like Peach. I tweeted the comment about the “good china” as soon as she said it and laughed out loud when she said she’d get her model into the dress even if it took a stick of butter.

    • JenR

      Her designs haven’t been great but her interviews have.

    • marie

      I agree.. I love Peach.. she’s funny and fresh and cute and everyone seems to like her and she’s smart with the hatin’ on Gretchen.. who is a big UGH. I think all her outfits have been unfortunate.. along with her mullet!

    • car

      I love Peach too but I thought she missed a HUGE opportunity with her hat which I thought was the most interesting one and should have inspired a h*ll of a dress. Her dress didn’t compliment it at all — just seemed like a nice Sunday brunch dress to me.

  • thwarted

    I actually loved Michael D.’s, especially the way it actually managed to play off the hat (unlike the other designers). Valerie’s, not so much. Bor-ing.

    • RaRa

      I loved Michael D’s also. It was innovative, and I loved the shape of the top.

    • Valley Girl

      Ditto on Michael D. – I think he should have won. I usually like Always-a-Bridesmaid-Valerie and her designs, but this time her outfit didn’t “wow” me.

  • Julz

    I obviously know nothing about fashion either because I loved Christopher’s outfit (probably without the boots though). If I could pull it off, I’d totally wear it. I also liked Michael’s winning look but I didn’t gush over it as much as the judges did. I think April should have gone but either were fine for me.

    • CoCo Chenille

      I liked Christopher’s outfit as well. Yes, it was dark but what were the judges expecting when the designers have to work with such ugly hats.

    • Fridge

      I think I would have like Christopher’s look a little more if he’d taken a little bit of the styling off. Take away those bunched silver leggings and the boots, give the model a simple black stacked stiletto and I’d totally wear it–maybe even with the mosquito net hat.

    • Pinky Shears

      I don’t really get why he was in the bottom. Maybe they wanted to “shock” us. They are acting even more bizarrely this season. Still don’t get either of gretchen’s wins.

      • Drew

        Thank you!!! I couldn’t believe that Christopher took such a beating. I thought his outfit looked pretty cool, but they ran him over with a semi. I don’t understand the judging this year, I really don’t, and I gotta be honest, I kind of hope this is the last season for Runway, because the judges are out of control.

      • Al

        I liked Christopher’s look too. I think the judges were still stoned from all the glue that went on last week’s looks.

    • mer

      I was withthe other designers on that – I thought Christopher’s outfit was tope 3, not bottom. I think this is the first time I have been so underwhelmed by a runway show and unable to tell top 3 from bottom 3. There could have been so much more creativity on this challenge.

      • Kitty

        me too– I thought he would win. admit the shiny leggings were bad– black leggings would have been better.

    • Zazazing

      Christopher’s designs have a lady-like quality to them, which I like. But perhaps he felt they were too refined to get him into the top 3 and that’s why he tried to make something more edgy. I think if he had turned that design into a 50’s style full-skirted cocktail dress (a la Mad Men), he would have done much better. I’m glad he has another chance to show what he can do. I just hope he sticks to his aesthetic, not try to be something he’s not.

  • kate s

    Michael D really came through and I thought the look was great. The outfit complemented the hat and the skirt was beautiful. It seemed Treacy thought this was the best of the night.

  • Jessicat

    I was shocked when they didn’t like Christopher’s look – I LOVED it!

    • JenR

      I loved the jacket, hated the leggings. But, I can’t decide if I just loved the jacket because I love the fabric.

  • frostysnowman

    I was hoping for some more outlandish and exciting outfits to go with those hats last night. Micheal C’s dress was pretty but “meh” compared to his model’s hat (and compared to that awesome red dress he made from the party supply store materials last week). I couldn’t figure out why Mr. Treacy loved it sooo much. But whatever. This challenge would have been more interesting if the models had worn the hats and then taken them off for the designers to choose, and then the designers could have been less worried about having the same model and more inspired by the challenge. I also want to know what’s up with Ify’s attitude. Gretchen and Ivy are both prententious and don’t appear to have filters in their brains that make them shut up when they should just be quiet.

  • Fridge

    I think I threw up in my mouth a little bit when Heidi walked out on the runway to Seal’s song, and as much as I love large, over-szied flowers as hair accesories, I hated that “hat” (I use the term VERY loosely). The stem sticking out from the top was beyond ridiculous. Also, I’m so annoyed by Heidi’s hair this season. Seriously, that woman has so many fly aways and I think the cut is less than chic. There, I had my rant lol. As for the winning design, I give it a “meh” rating. I didn’t think the color of the material of the dress went with the hat. Personally I think a black material with a certain amount of shimmer would have higlighted the lobster-claw hat far better than that copper mess. Gretchen needs to retract the claws–she’s not sassy or snooty enought to pull off the b*tch attitude for me, Irena was far better at it and a much better designer.

    • Peachy

      I couldn’t take anything Heidi said seriously while she was wearing that ridiculous rose hat.

      • copter

        I hated that hat too!!! Out of all that hats that man made that is the one they choose for her to wear????

      • Theresa

        i have been rdeniag your blog from sometime and i must say you always maintain good consistency,hence i always enjoy rdeniag your blog.

      • Ignacio

        goose2goose2 on January 26, 2011 @electrique527 @tsport100 know much about wind teunibrs> ? No ..maybe do just a few minutes searching around, before shoot your mouth off and showing everyonewhat we already knew..that you don’t have a clue.the gen-set alone cost over 700 dollars try looking up the cost of an axial flux gen-set,then you might consider even finding out just what , exactly that is .

    • Mori

      I think the shimmer of the red hat was coppery which is why all the judges raved about Michael’s fabric. I bet the color match was more obvious in person than on tv.

    • Marci

      You don’t like Heidi’s hair? I think it’s great, I love the easy swingy style. Are you a hairdresser?

      • Fridge

        Nope. I work in insurance actually lol :) Just something about the cut…it almost reminds me of one of the Monkees. I think it’s the bangs and the way it angles To me it just looks kind of messy. I guess I have heightened expectations since she was a former model and I’m sure there’s a team of stylists who work on her before the show–get her some smoothing serum, stat!

      • arahsae

        Fridge – it reminds me of the cut poor Saleisha got on ANTM a few seasons back. AKA, the Tutti. Heidi needs to fire her hair stylist ASAP.

      • BLB

        It makes me think of haircuts kids get at home when their parents don’t want to pay for the cut.

      • Ames

        Exactly, BLB. Like she did it herself with a Flo-Bee. The whole show started to look a little “low rent” when they switched from Bravo to Lifetime. And there’s no excuse for this show not to be in HD.

    • Marsha

      Heidi’s hat looked like something Olive Oyl would wear.

      • cindybrady

        you’re on the right track but need to google a pic of Alice the Goon…she wore a flower hat…

    • Dan

      The color matched the dress pretty well.

  • Briana

    I love the comment about Gretchen’s “Betty Crockering of the makeup”. Very clever, Missy! I’m entertained, as always, reading your recap. Thank you!

    • heko

      Gretch the Wretch looked HORRID in all that make up! Loved the “BC” comment.

      • Pinky Shears

        Gretch the Wretch !! haha I call her Retchin :)

      • Al

        I just call her b itch.

      • Pinky Shears

        or Wretched. I stink I’ll stick with that :)

    • becky

      I agree! I love Missy’s recaps more than the show itself! Gretchen looks garish these days.

  • Ashleigh

    I am usually pretty good at figuring out what the judges will like and not like (which is not to say it is what I like) but I was completely backwards on this episode. I loved loved loved Christopher’s outfit (maybe take out one ‘love’ for the leggings), but I thought the print was wonderful, and I thought it really worked with the hat. And while I really loved Michael C’s dress, I didn’t think the judges would care for it at all. Guess it is a good thing I’m not on the judging panel.

    And I agree with Missy — it should have been a double elimination, with diaper lady going home.

    Lastly, am I the only one who hates the word “panties”? I almost had to turn the channel when Michael Kors kept saying it.

  • West Coast Laura

    I too thought the winning look was well… winning. MIchael C. made a nice bit of lemonade from his lemons of earlier in the challenge. The other contestants who dissed him were just upset that he pulled it out.

  • Hannah

    I didn’t like Michael C’s dress because I have seen that style a million times, but I did think the color went very well with the hat color.

    I think the other Michael should have won.

    I don’t mind a little arrogance, but I think Gretchen hasn’t established herself enough to be a diva.

    Gretchen can be as arrogant as she wants when she is at the same level as Armani, Marc Jacobs, etc.

    I think that’s why she gets on my nerves.

    • Fridge

      The same thing annoys me about Gretchen as well as the fact that her designs really aren’t all that great either. She says that Michael is a replicator, I think she is too. I don’t see a lot that’s fresh or innovative in her hippy aesthetic. She thinks far too highly of herself.

      • fg

        I agree that Gretchen is annoying but I do think she has some talent (except maybe this week, those leggings were horrid) but Ivy seems to have just as big an ego and no talent to back it up. She needs to go home soon.

      • Bert

        I mean, a JUMPSUIT, for Pete’s sake?!

      • Jamie

        Seriously – other than last weeks “look” (which I actually liked) Gretchen’s first two looks were straight from the 80’s. It’s like she saw a documentary on Studio 54 or something and decided to rip of the style. And shame on those nasty judges for buying into it. Of course they’ll keep her around for drama – it’s not like Top Chef where they keep people who can actually cook.

        Thanks for saying how embarrassing The Wretch is to watch: someone died and made her the Fashion God of this season, which is such a shame, because she’s the Mean Girl this year and I want to disown her from representing Portland/Vancouver. We were so proud of Seth Allen from Vancouver, but I hope The Wretch has a mega fail: isn’t she just like that witch from NY two seasons ago when they moved it to LA? Her whole clique is nasty: go Christopher for being a humble mensch and Peach for being so normal.

        Sorry, meant to say “Michael C is a mensch” altho Christopher really is a nice guy (except for the legging mis-step…hahaha.)

      • um…

        seth AARON.

        To Um…yes, two mistakes for me, lame brainiack I am: Seth Aaron and Michael C is a mensch. Love all the comments. “Good China” Peach is too good for the room.

    • Cherry

      Agreed, I didn’t really care for Michael C’s dress, it was average at best. He’s seems like he could be a total diva like Gretchen if they were to edit him the same way. Neither of them are very likable, in my opinion.

      I have to say, Gretchen’s jumpsuit was amazing and fit very well. She has a very au courant style. The wrinkled leather jacket really looked like leather. That said, none of this should merit her snobbish, boorish behavior.

      You have said everything I was thinking, Hannah!

    I thought that Christopher was definitely in the top three, which makes me wonder if I am biased in his favor because he’s a hottie. Actually, I wonder if the other contestants are biased in his favor because he’s a hottie.

    • Jules

      Yes, and Christopher being so humble makes him so much more attractive!

      OMG…Christopher has to be the cutest PR contestant ever!

      • Julia

        And it’s not just that he’s so good-looking – he actually seems like a decent human being you would want to know and work with.

    • R3

      I haven’t really noticed his looks. To me, he just looks like a million other guys I’ve seen.
