Parts of the reunion special were really enjoyable, and parts of it were not at all. Basically all the stuff involving the twins was either pretty uncomfortable or pretty ridiculous. Watching Claire attempt to walk back her admission in the cheating scandal was kind of painful. While Claire seemed to be spinning hard to bend and stretch the truth as far as she thought she could to help save face, it also doesn’t seem now like anyone did actually see her measure anything or with the tape measure, as had been claimed. It doesn’t matter now, but it was a little frustrating to go through the whole incident again only for people to keep interjecting when Claire was trying to tell whatever story she was trying to tell.
Otherwise, it felt very clear that most of the other designers disliked Claire and Shawn from the very beginning, before there was any issue of cheating or helping one another too much or having talked crap about the other designers clothes in confessional. For one, almost no one who talked about them individualized them at all. When Amy started talking about breaking the rules and bringing the tape measure, for example, she was clearly talking to and about both Claire and Shawn even though Shawn was already gone when it all went down and had nothing to do with it. Then they played the montage of the designers talking about each other’s work, and people were only bothered by things Claire and Shawn said. Margarita had more negative things to say about other people’s designs than anyone else did across the season, and no one had anything to say to her about it. (Margarita also blatantly lied in saying that she talked to Michael in Spanish mostly to express her insecurities, when she and Michael were clearly talking about other designers right in front of their faces.) And the things people were saying about Claire and Shawn tended to be both personal insults and criticisms of their work. I can understand people having a problem with the twins being there together, but in that case someone should have called out Project Runway for casting a pair of identical twins who are design partners and then not doing anything to keep them from collaborating heavily on challenges. They were hardly blameless, but those women were thrown to the lions for the sake of drama. The reunion could have taken time to call out some other people and their BS, but instead the climax was twin drama rehash.
Aside from that stuff, the show was fun. I guess no one would have had much in the way of updates at this point, but I would have liked to know how Margarita’s family was doing in the wake of the hurricane devastation in Puerto Rico.December 4, 2017 at 7:09 am #1202429001
Pretty good reunion special. It didn’t need to be 90 minutes; 60 minutes would have sufficed. Yes, Claire trying to backtrack the cheating confession was both disappointing and eye-rolling. Glad everyone (especially Amy, who might as well have been on “Project Runway”‘s legal counsel) called Claire out on that selective memory bullshit. Thrilling season overall with great strides taken in diversity and body imaging. Getting back the models for this and Queen Liris was also a nice touch. Werk that Marie Claire digital layout, bitch! Onto “All-Stars” in January 2018!December 4, 2017 at 8:07 am #1202429026

Maybe Amy would be fun in an all-star season? I was shocked when Tim asked who the most underestimated designer was and everyone said her name. I remember thinking throughout the whole competition that she was just fodder.December 4, 2017 at 10:05 am #1202429183
