Project Runway 12: Episode 1: Eco-Terror
Instead of booting this nutjob, they got rid of Angela whose tear-drop hoodie wasn't as awful as Timothy's trainwreck. Tim Gunn could have used his brand-new "save" power to redeem a contestant from being eliminated. But he can only use it once and this was the very first episode (Hey, they have more than one non-elimination round on Amazing Race, I don't see why Tim can only have one save all season). At least now, Gunn will get to sit with judges and make comments, but only during the "closer look" segment when the judges actually get up close and personal with the models and the garments.
Other upcoming drama includes a clash between Timothy and his fellow Milwaukeeian (is that a word) Miranda, the army vet. They look like brother and sister, the same hair and heavy-framed glasses, and since they come from the same town, their sibling rivalry must be extreme.
Also Kate from last season is back based on fans' voting for a returning contestant. I'm sorry, I can't even remember her or any of the other potential returnees.
So far I like Braden, the former Mark Morris dancer, and Sue, the self-taught tall blonde who didn't know how to operate a modern sewing machine. Both of their designs were elegant and creative. For once the judges agreed with me, giving them first and second place respectively. I want Timothy and Sandro gone, but they will probably hang on as long as the producers think these two will cause more stress and conflict.
