SPOILER ALERT!!! If you haven’t watched last night’s episode of Project Runway yet (Episode 12) please skip this post. If you have (or you don’t care) scroll down……
Simply because I’m not on Facebook anymore, I’m going to have to say this here: I was totally holding my breath last night, hoping against hope that Ken wouldn’t make a gorgeous dress that would make the judges have to keep him. And I let out a big, loud “YES!” to my empty living room when they said he was going home. I don’t care how good he is, he doesn’t deserve to win.
I have no idea what’s in the contracts for these contestants, but there certainly should be something about this kind of behavior (Alessandro, too!) getting you disqualified from the competition. People competing in a true contest of abilities shouldn’t have to deal with this kind of crap. I don’t handle that kind of hate and anger being spewed at me and if I were competing, I wouldn’t be able to focus on my own project. I’d be curled up in a corner somewhere, crying like someone hit me. It’s an unfair thing to do to the contestants to expect them to continue, week after week, with that kind of vitriol all around. So when I say, “Whew!” I’m saying it for myself (cause now I can actually enjoy the designing competition for the remainder of the episodes) and for the other contestants, because it seems like it will be more just.
I just had to say it 🙂
