Project Runway 9 Ep. 12 - "Ello Govna!"

Last week on Project Runway – BOIDS!! This week on Project Runway – BORING! 

It’s morning in Manhattan and Josh is still complaining about losing 20 Large to Anya. Considering Joshua works the Coat Check at a local gay bar (seriously), I can see why he’s upset. You gotta fetch a lot of Prada jackets in order to make $20,000. 

The final five designers head to the runway – where Heidi announces this is the final challenge. She also announces that a Big Fairy will take them to Governor’s Island… 

Once the Hairy Fairy drops them onto the Island, Tim tells them the challenge: they are to create a three-look collection inspired by Governor’s Island. They are given a golf card and a camera and have one hour to race each other while taking pictures explore and sketch. 

Kimberly is drawn to a sculpture entitled “New Beginning”. Josh is initially inspired by a long, hard, sleek cannon… 

…. which would have been HIGH-larious, but unfortunately Joshua ends up using a church as his inspiration. Where’s the comedy in THAT, Joshua?!? 

Laura sees some circles and can’t get them out of her head. Sounds like Blondie needs an anti-psychotic pill or some Abilfy or something. 

The Big Hairy Fairy then takes the designers back to Manhattan where they head to Mood, and then back to the workroom. 

Tim arrives with the dreaded Button Bag – and announces that the designers will be getting some help. In walks Becky, Olivier, Bryce, Bert and Anthony-Ryan. Tim draws names to determine who will pick their helper first. Here’s how it works out: 

Kimberly – Becky 

Viktor – Olivier 

Laura – Anthony-Ryan 

Anya – Bert 

Josh – Bryce 

Surprisingly, the “assistants” provided very little drama (much to Lifetime’s chagrin, I’m sure). Bryce spent his entire time trying to convince Josh not to do a Mummer’s Parade outfit… 

…and Olivier spent most of his time mumbling about how helping Viktor was just like slavery. Yes, sewing some fabric for a few hours while having your meals catered is EXACTLY like slavery. Ugh. Excuse my Pig Latin, but what a “ittle-lay ick-pray”

Day One ends and Day Two begins with a Tim Gunn visit and a model fitting. Josh is still moaning about losing to the “beauty queen” (LET IT GO, girl) and Laura begins to cry every time she starts telling her “I was raised a poor black child”  “I’ve been doing this since I was 8 years old and want it so baaaaaaad” shtick. 

It’s now runway day and Kimberly keeps changing stuff, Josh asks Bryce to handle his “studding process” (I don’t even WANT to know), and one of Anya’s models has her dress on backwards. 

Onto the runway… Heidi introduces the judges: Michael Kors, Nina Friggin Garcia and yet another B-list actress, Zoe Saldana (who was a pretty fabulous judge, btw). 

Sashay, Shantay. My initial impressions were that Josh, Laura and Kimberly were in trouble and Viktor and Anya were not. I was almost right. 

Everyone is asked the traditional “Why should you go to Fashion Week and who would you take with you”. 

Joshua said he would take Viktor and Anya – even though Anya doesn’t know how to sew and is getting by solely on her looks (I’m ad-libbing a little bit here

In turn, Anya said she would take Josh to fashion week – presumably to fetch her Prada coat. 

The Judges discuss and bring everybody back out. Anya will be creating a collection, as will Viktor. 

The producers Judges also pick Josh to advance to the finale. 

It comes down to Kimberly and weepy Laura – and Laura is sent home for her circular mess of a collection.

Laura ran around in circles until her collection melted into a pool of nothingness.

Sounds right to me.

Yup, old Josh had waaaay too much personality not to go all the way.
I heard Tim say that, on his designer visits, one designer had nothing done to show him. Want to bet it is Anya?

I put up WA state's big, hairy ferries against NY's any day!
loves you, loves your recaps. Can hardly wait for all-stars.

I am so sick of Viktor (which Heidi always overpronounces "vik-TOR") and his whining (with incorrect grammar) about stealing his fucking designs! No one want's your fucking ideas, bitch- they aren't that good! I was hoping he would go home!

I also thought it quite bitchy of Anya not to loan Josh her fabric after her ass got saved by $11.50 when her money got lost up Josh's ass!

And is Josh not THE prissy queen you've ever seen?! Did you love the way he SASHAYED onto Governor's Island?

Joy said...

Josh works all my nerves! I hope he does bedazzle his designs while he has all that time and no one to edit him. It could be Kimberly with nothing to show Tim since she's so indecisive but either her or Anya.

The unknown actress was a good judge. No one is outstanding this season, but your recaps are! xoxoxoxxo

and I LOVELOVELOVE Josh's eyebrows..I want them badly. and Ginger had it right...he SASHAYED onto that island like he owned that bitch!!!

Im glad Laura went home, with her nasaly, whiney voice...UGH.

and Josh was a BITCH!!! Love him!!

I agree about slim talent this season, but knew Laura was doomed from the start.

However, shocked that would call Zoe Saldana, "B"-list. She has been 3 major blockbusters, every year (see below)
Neytiri (The tribes princess Sam Worthington falls in love with) in Avatar
Uhura in the Star Trek (2009) and the upcoming sequel
Lead/star in Columbiana, which was out this summer

I have to wonder how Kimberly would have fared had she had someone less patient and flexible than Becky working with her—say, Oliv[i]er.

It also irks me that Viktor and Laura weren't bright enough to see what an asset Bert would be in the workroom. Anya was very lucky to get Bert, and I'd like to think she'd have chosen him even if her name had come out of the bag sooner.
