We still can't believe how much we loved Project Runway All Stars, to the point that we're kind of bummed that Isaac Mizrahi, Georgina Chapman, Joanna Coles and Angela Lindvall won't be around this season. Much as we enjoyed Season 9 (not to mention the fact that we'd never turn down more Tim Gunn in our lives), we're a little worried that the show will now fall the way of other reality competitions that lost stamina after an all-star season (looking at you, Top Chef). Here's what we're hoping that the powers that be at Lifetime bring to the runway this season:
I wasn't going to watch the Behind the Seams special, since I was already over this season of Project Runway, but the power of Tim Gunn compelled me.
I enjoy Project Runway and intend to watch every single episode until the show eventually ends, but starting next season, I might be watching with my finger on the fast-forward button. The show is going to extend from an hour-long into ninety minutes. That's too long for regular episodes. For the premiere and the finale? Sure, make them that long. Heck, make those two hours, but weekly? Even if it is moving to 9 PM at night instead of 10 PM, that's a lot to ask. And I have a hard time believing that there are people who sent complaints that the show was too short, Heidi. No matter how much you'd like me to believe that. Here's why we're dreading it:
Project Runway may have attracted quite a few fabulous guest judges over the years (Diane von Furstenberg! Zac Posen! Betsy Johnson! OMG!), but just like any other hit show, it's not immune to the allure of pointless stuntcasting sometimes. We understand they gotta pay the bills somehow, but the following Runway guest judges just have no business being anywhere near the fashion industry whatsoever.
There are more unnecessary half hours of television on, but I'm sort of hard pressed to name one today. Did someone really think that we were so vested in the model "competition" portion of Project Runway that we needed an entire thirty minutes devoted to it? Presumably, yes.
Our hero of the week is Tim Gunn, for being classy while telling several bitter Project Runway contestants off for daring to say the show was fixed. We actually really like him when he's angry.
Trying again to promote the good in humanity, we'd like to give it up to Big Brother's Nick who at least had the decency to be polite and kind to GinaMarie on national television. If he runs and hides in the coming weeks to get away from her… well, let's just say we wouldn't blame him.
Again, we're starting off with some kind thoughts as we learned this week that perpetually awesome hosts Tim Gunn and Cat Deeley were even more awesome than we had previously believed. First, it was revealed that Cat was responsible for the amazing Jasmine making it to the Top 20 (well deserved!) and then we watched Tim Gunn delicately diffuse a potentially volatile situation with Ken without even breaking a sweat. Both are total pros.
We were grossed out watching Jacqueline have chunks of her skin removed on Real Housewives of New Jersey, but we can't really blame the skin for that, only the faceless editors. Instead, there are these real people who are just as disgusting, with some extra bonus horribleness this week.
