On one hand, my least favorite person is gone. On the other, WTF.

I'm assuming you're talking about how they ripped Terry's dress to shreds and KEPT Miss INSANE POOFY SLEEVES?

Because Terry's gotten repeatedly shafted this season. I don't like her personality, but her clothes have been beautiful. She didn't deserve to go. I was very WTF myself. As was my mom, who I happened to watch the episode with.

YES! The sleeves. I was not aware crazy poofiness was part of being an Aquarius.

Terri wasn't my favorite either (though I was surprised they started ripping on her for the pants in the challenge involving Marlene Dietrich; of all the challenges to make pants, that would be the one), but she never got the recognition she deserved when she made great clothes. And then as soon as she slips up (and it wasn't that bad, comparatively), she gets tossed off.

Terri has been waaaay more consistent with great execution and IMHO was robbed of wins on more than 1 occasion. While I really hated watching the drama tonight between Terri and Keith (You with the testosterone - GROW UP! You with the estrogen - yeah, ditto. And ditch the entitlement bitch act on the way!) I did think her design was much better thought out than the crazy insane plaid princess of poof.

As for the winner: Jerrel? REALLY? I mean, it was good and all, but winner???

I KNOW. Scorpio Dress was much better. Hell, there were a few things that were better.

EXACTLY! Leigh Ann's was fabulous, Korto's was fabulous, and I'll be honest, I really really loved Joe's. I liked Jerrel's. (Key word there: liked)

YMMV, but I felt like the win was used to balance the top players out...three in a row for Leigh Ann might have caused another black hole for the earth to worry about.

I was honestly shocked at how much I loved Joe's dress. Even though I knew he wouldn't win because he'd gotten no coverage in the show. I wish we had seen the comments on the dresses the judges liked.

Joe makes me crazy somedays, but I thought his dress really nailed the challenge. Leigh Ann's was my fave, but his was a darned close #2. With Korto's right behind them both. In Michael Phelps terms, they were all within a hundredth of a second from each other.

Somehow I just knew they wouldn't send Suede home yet...don't ask me why. I honestly didn't think his outfit was bad, but then what the heck do I know. (I know enough to know that Blayne's? Made the mannequins cry!)

I think that maybe they couldn't send their two "character" contestants home in one night.

Honestly, I wonder why they decided to send two home at once at all.

I'm so used to the PR games that I kept waiting to hear "and the auf'd partner will get to come back! That's why we're sending two of you home! Isn't that great?!?!" Now I'm also unclear as to why...the past two seasons they've lost a contestant unexpectedly, and ended up bringing someone back...did they assume this would happen again?

The fact that this Friday (as in tomorrow) is the PR show at Fashion week is also making me CRAZY...does that mean that all remaining 6 get to show at Fashion Week, with THREE decoys??!!??

Honestly, this season...not my fave.

Considering I saw pictures of all six remaining designers' Bryant Park collections...yes. That's exactly what they're doing. What a freaking waste.

ITA. I'm not sure what happened to the PR I used to know and love but this...isn't it. I'll give it a shot on Lifetime to see if it returns to its roots (After giving Heroes and Lost a second chance, I've turned into a softy!) before pulling the plug. Right now, my deep and abiding love for Tim Gunn is the saving grace of the show.

INORITE? Seriously, how could they have picked Jerrell's when you have the Pure Awesome that was Korto's design sweeping about? *is baffled* I personally would have given it to Leanne Dress of Scorpio Magnificence, but, as said, three wins in a row might be pushing it a bit. Still, Jerrell??

I honestly thought they were going to give it to Leanne again, because she deserved it, and or maybe hand it off to someone with a slightly less innovative dress because she had already had two in a row, but Jerrel? That jacket better have had some amazing detail.

I don't think so, but when my friend and I were trying to name all the past winners a few weeks ago, I discovered I couldn't remember the fourth season at all. Very embarassing.

I have to agree on Terri not getting the recognition she deserved earlier in the season. I didn't even think this dress was that bad, and benefited from losing the fur (see, she listens to criticism).

I had actually hoped that the Terri/Keith bitch-fest would be more entertaining than it turned out. It actually just made me sad they were acting like children.

As for Jerrel, I can only assume there was some great detail on that jacket or something, because I was seriously unimpressed with the jumpsuit.

Exactly. You can fight and it be entertaining (for the viewers, not necessarily for the partipants) and then there's the sad snarky bitter bitchfest that we were treated to tonight. Keith, I know you're upset but did you really have to hand Terri a loaded weapon of a phrase like "I'm really fragile right now."???!!?? She eats stuff like that for breakfast along with Stella's kickin' coffee.

All in all, I really don't think Terri's outfit was as bad as Kenley's, and am still perplexed why she was booted already, unless the judges were just reacting to outfit+lack of teamplay. At least Wesley and Kenley were getting along, even though you could tell Wesley thought Kenley's dress was getting justifiably slammed.

I feel like we should set up a playbook for all future contestants that says:
1. When Tim Gunn questions, LISTEN.
2. When Heidi says the boobs look odd, LISTEN. (She made a fortune modeling bras, ergo I think she may have a good idea where they should be, KENLEY!)
3. When Tim Gunn questions, LISTEN.
4. Blaming your teammate, the model, the judges, the sewing machines or the guests judge(s) will not save you from being eliminated. And it just makes the judges angry. Don't do it.
5. When Tim Gunn questions, LISTEN.

Word. In five seasons, I think there has only been once where something Tim didn't like was liked by the judges.

And don't even remember what it was, just that I was surprised.

Seriously! I normally like Kenley's stuff, but what about Giant Plaid Shoulders of Doom says Aquarius at all? And then being all "NO U!!!" at the judges? Kenley needs to ditch this whole I Am The Queen of Fashion Forever thing she's got going on. But then, it seems like all the contenders have had their Bella Swann Moments so far - where's the self-doubt and humility that should be there, at least in part, like the last, oh, four seasons?

I feel like I could like Terri if she wasn't such a raging bitch. Like, all the time! I mean, her designs are great, more often than not, but her Holier-Than-Thou stance = Fail. Kinda like Christian, but everyone apparently loves him so I'll shut up.

If it's any consolation, the guy who was eliminated was my least favorite as well! In a 'reach through the screen to knock some sense into him', kind of way.

If anything, Korto's was friggin' awesome, and Leanne's was absolutely fab. Leanne = my new favorite since about six challanges ago. <3

Kenley never listens to anybody, and that's why I suspect she won't be going to Bryant Park. Didn't she see what happened to Keith? You are not as good as you think you are!

I didn't like Christian either, so you're not alone.

I never liked Blayne, but I guess I never wanted to punch him in the face like I do/did with Kenley and Keith. I suppose once he grows up and drops the character act, he might be a good designer.

Leanne's one of my favorites as well. I really want her to go all the way, and the Scorpio dress was totally actually avant garde.

ITA.

Not sure why Kenley thinks herself the Omniscient Goddess of Fashion lately, but see my first suggested rule above. Not listening to Tim? Sure-fire way to not make it to Bryant Park? Don't believe me - watch any of the previous seasons. Or check with wackadoo Vincent.

Losing Keith for me was not a blow. Actually I haven't been too upset with any of the auf's thus far except for Kelly, who I had originally chosen to go all the way.

At this stage, I'm definitely rooting for Leanne (see, I can learn how to spell her name) and Korto to make it to Bryant Park, with Joe as a possibility.

Kelly was one of my favorites, too. Partner challenges always seem to bring someone good down instead of a more deserving contestant (*cough*Blayne*cough*; though I congratulate him on stepping up to take the blame).

Hmm.

I wanted Korto to win, but I suppose LeAnne's collection did look more professional. Was it just me, or have the startards for clothing made on this show gone way down?

I agree that the standards seem to have gone down. I wasn't really wowed by anything in any of the shown collections the way I was previous years. I liked a lot of the things, even liked them a lot, but there was nothing that popped out for me.
