Project Runway: O.V.E.R. it.

Jerell's winning look, based on a photo he snapped at the botanical garden.

The melodrama amps up as the number of designers dwindle ... and I'm officially over this season of "Project Runway."

Why? Here's a few reasons, just from Thursday's episode:
  • Kenley hates on the designers, claiming LeAnne's lack of "selling it" on the runway as the reason her mom jeans/faux hip-hop look lost the rock 'n roll challenge.
  • Kenley cries because she grew up on a tugboat, where rudeness is apparently welcomed, along with eyerolling and being disrespectful.
  • Jerell, Korto and LeAnne delight in keeping crabby Kenley out of the cool kids circle, and refuse to share their tulle with the absent-minded whiner.
  • Since she's already talked smack to Tim Gunn, Nina Garcia, Michael Kors and her fellow designers, Kenley focuses her grating defensiveness on Heidi. Imagine the most obnoxious whiny ValleyGirl tone you can, and picture Kenley telling Heidi: "I wasn't going for elegant, Heidi, gah!"

So who got the boot? No one. And, given that this "we're cutting to three, nope, we'll keep four" scenario has played out in the last few season, it shouldn't have been a surprise. I know it's "reality" TV and the only reason Miss I-wish-it-was-the-1950s is still on is because she makes for good TV, but dios mio!

I wondered for a sec if it didn't have to do with this recent development in the Bravo/Lifetime battle over PR, but then was too worn out from hating on Kenley to care.

I still think it'll be Jerell, Korto and LeAnne in the finals. I still think my girl Korto will win. Thoughts?


  1. Being a faithful watcher, i never thought i'd do this....but about a month ago i quit watching because we unplugged our TV to do some remodeling in the bedroom and my DVR wasn't hooked up to record it. Long story short, I stopped watching a month ago and obviously haven't missed a thing! What a crummy season! Wake me when it's over please! LOL!

  2. I love the show and this season, but I am SO over Kenley. She is rude and whiney and pitches a fit when she doesn't get her way. I am still going to watch the show until the end and my pick for winner is Korto. She has held up throughout the show and her clothes are amazing! I can't wait until next Wednesday!

  3. I pulling for Korto; but if you watched the preview at the end of the show it looks as if Jerel or Korto will not continue. Ughhhhhh

  4. Kenley should be long gone and that's all there is to it. She is too full of herself and will NOT listen to constructive criticism. Personally, I'm rooting for Leanne to win. The designs she showed during fashing week were beautiful. (You can see the top 6 designers' Bryant Park looks online since the actual show was weeks ago).

  5. I certainly hope Korto wins and Kenley is sent back to the tugboat.
