I like the show. It’s hard not to since it’s 75% Project Runway. The main differences EmmyLoser mentioned and the fact that the judging panel stays for every episode is nowhere near enough of a reason for anybody to dislike this if they’re a fan of Project Runway. So this is a slam dunk idea.
The problem though, is the talent. I haven’t really seen anything that exciting in 4 episodes. And by the end of episode 3 Tim, who just cried saying he was sure the next big brand was in the room in episode 1, had enough and told them they sucked. The entire group. So, I’m not alone in feeling nothing has really stood out. It always feels like over half of the contestants could be on the bottom.
Anyway, I do like the show. I did miss Tim and Heidi. I think Naomi Nicole GuyName and LadyName form a great panel with Heidi. They’re my favorite part so far.

I love Aiden, but this was the time to go. It was just too much lazyness with the Snatch Game. And then the runway look was just as lazy. Brita deserved her spot on the bottom. She looked exactly like Jennifer Holiday, but I don’t think she said “And I am telling you…” once. She HAS to go next week.
Gigi and her Hilary Swank looking ass killed the Snatch Game. I wish more people knew about Beverly Hills Housewives to know how good and dedicated Jackie was (unlike Aiden). She put everything she knew in there, but we can’t be surprised, she’s been on Watch What Happens as Rinna with Rinna herself right there. They both deserved to be on the top, but I would’ve given the win to Jackie because of the runway. Gigi’s look was…just okay.
It wasn’t THAT good of a Snatch Game, the only standouts were Gigi and Jackie. Heidi tried, but no. Sherry was Top 3 because they needed a third. That wasn’t good and it was surprising. Although like Michelle said, it was the third week in a row we got to see this old lady look.
Crystal was saved because Brita can’t get worse and Ru’s obsession with her El Debarge hair. Jan was a huge mess too. The look was awful.
I don’t know what was up with RuPaul this week suggesting, advising and almost demanding people be characters they aren’t familiar with. They can’t even look people up. They can’t find out shit. Did he forget the Mariah debacle from season 11 which he critized A LOT and resulted in a 6 people lip sync? You can’t just pretend people will be or even know Phaedra or El Debarge just like that. Specially El Debarge, all people remember is one song, nobody remembers anything specific about him. How many mulet jokes and shoulder shaking can there be? This Poppy character didn’t do shit for Crystal, but what was El Debarge gonna do for her?April 2, 2020 at 7:17 am #1203406153
So, Sherry Pie fucking up the season for another week like the pro she is.April 1, 2020 at 4:47 pm #1203405619
Yeah, Widow looks like an obvious Top 4 contestant to me. She’s a great performer. And even if her looks aren’t always the best, and they’re not, there’s a lot of effort and great starts to many of those looks.
Forgot to talk about the actual episode before. Gay’s Anatomy was nice. It was a good challenge for all 6 of the “nominees”. I couldn’t stop laughing at Aidan taking that Mae West line they threw at her and sticking with it all the way to the end. I found it hilarious to be honest, he did do some great things in there. Brita, man, she’s the worst. I hope she’s out this week. Jan, Sherry and Jackie are great actresses. I think Jan tries too hard, but when she’s good, she’s good.
The preview this week is only 5 minutes long, I assume the Snatch Game will be extra long since it’s 10 girls. Hopefully there are some good jokes in there and the reading challenge later this season too after last season’s debacle.
What’s with the Snatch Game being this week? Didn’t think girls like Aiden, Brita, Crystal would make it to the Snatch Game. Nicki either and she almost did.April 1, 2020 at 8:58 am #1203404660
Justin was in Lance’s podcast to celebrate the 20th anniversary of No Strings Attached. They talked a lot and went through each song. I’ve never heard that entire album, maybe 4 or 5 songs at most, but it was a fun listen.
They talked about every member, they supposedly have a group chat and things like that. They seem to be more than OK and Justin had to agree to that Walk of Fame star because people pay for it. It doesn’t just happen. So he had to agree to go there with his friends, say a few words and take pictures. He wouldn’t have done that if they weren’t on good terms.
They talked about a reunion and the same thing came up. Schedules, time, other jobs (for Justin, lol) and stuff.
I highly doubt it happens. Justin hasn’t hit rock bottom yet. But keep your hopes up if you want, he’s not doing that good either and this is VERY easy money.March 28, 2020 at 10:02 am #1203398385
Maybe this is why Britta wasn’t canceled like Sherry was. Producers knew the editors took care of her cancelation for us. They’re really giving her a terrible edit. She cannot stand Aiden, it’s Thorgy vs Bob again. She needs to go next week. She’s the one person this season I don’t care about.
If Britta leaves next week, then it’s gonna hurt from that point forward. Everybody besides her is great and fun to watch.
I’ve taken a turn on Sherry’s situation. I have to forget about her shit for now and just enjoy her until the end when she’s out of the show because it’s just too much. She’s too good. And now I believe the show should’ve let the season go on as planned without editing Sherry out. This is because it’s fucking weird and confusing some times to see her win or be on top when you really haven’t seen or heard from her during the episode.
You know when that contestant on Project Runway gets eliminated third or fourth and on that episode the editors have no choice but to finally feature the person a lot even though they’re nowhere to be found on the first 2 or 3 episodes? That’s how it feels with Sherry. Where the fuck did you come from? Where were you? It’s a mind fuck. And she’s SO GOOD!March 27, 2020 at 11:03 am #1203397167
I agreed with everything here. It’s great Sandra chose to leave. She was never getting back in the game if it means going around an island looking for rocks. She won’t go for a physical challenge. There’s no “Sandra bench” here so yeah, it would’ve been a waste on time, and it’s not gonna be worth it at all to be on that shitty extinction island.
As for Yul, anybody who shows they run or wanna run the game or a tribe so much has to go. I wouldn’t have been able to stand that either. And Rob just got voted off (in part) for doing just that.
I agree that the merge will become boys vs girls since all the boys left have done shitty things this season and everybody has their eye on them anyway. Good to know there are a lot of tough ladies there and it won’t be some guy winning immunity challenges every week.
The merge is always fun. I will miss people like Parvati or Tyson there.March 26, 2020 at 9:52 am #1203395244
Sharon Stone and Talia Shire are confusing to me. Always have been. Was it ego? Was it too early in Oscar campaigning (even if they’re like 20 years apart) and they didn’t know how to strategize or they seriously went with “I have the biggest female part here, so I’m a Lead Actress”? To me, those were two very easy Oscar wins. Maybe Mira Sorvino still wins, but Talia Shire would’ve won.
Courtney Love? That was a huge missed opportunity. That was stupid. It’s hard enough for them to accept these women as true actresses and recognize them, specially this messy woman. So, they don’t need to be campaigning as leads unless it’s an obvious situation like Gaga, Cher, Ross and others. And she deserved that nomination for sure.
Ellen Burstyn in supporting is clearly a case where she would’ve sweapt all awards, except the Globe which of course they would’ve still given to Hudson. But still, Burstyn missed out on that one. Erin Brokovich came out in March, I think, they were clearly aware Burstyn wasn’t winning when they started the campaign. But whatever, she has her Oscar and we got the biggest shocking win of our time. I mean, more people predicted Parasite to win.March 26, 2020 at 9:41 am #1203395233
Crash is “loathed” because it beat Brokeback Mountain. Had it been a case where it beat any other film, nobody would “loathe” it. But, you know, it beat the gay movie everybody wanted to see win because it was better (of course it was) and it was gonna make history and so on.
Yes, Crash is a terrible winner with Brokeback right there, but it doesn’t mean the movie is awful.
I think a third option with something like “It’s okay”, “It’s good” should’ve been on the poll. Because I don’t love it today, but I know I don’t and never did loathe it.March 22, 2020 at 10:20 am #1203390077
That was a great episode with some shocking exits, but they needed to happen. I love Parvati, but she had to go if the other want to win. Last week she turned the Parvati character on and it was hilarious to watch them fall for it. So, it’s good that they wised up and voted her off.
Denise killed it too. She didn’t need to use the other idol. But she did that and she didn’t even give stupid Sandra her other coin. Now, I don’t like Sandra, but she also made a big and logical move. Too bad (for her) that Denise decided to do what she was supposed to do.
I still do wonder what happens with the eliminated people. I will say, I was anticipating being annoyed by the possibly ridiculous Rob and Amber reunion on Edge of Extinction, so I’m glad they didn’t even show it.March 21, 2020 at 10:46 am #1203389328
I knew that Rock M’s 3rd dress would do her in when lip synching. Should have had scissors. They are only allowed to change outfits for the lip synch during All stars
Dusty changed. She was eliminated during the ball, and least 2 of those outfits were comfortable for lip synching. This is when she had the shorts and the hat everybody liked right? But instead she wore a fourth (basic) look for the performance.
I think others have done it too.March 21, 2020 at 10:42 am #1203389326
Find somebody you like on the cast and he will be eliminated first or pretty quickly. But yeah, Joe deserved to go. He fucked up the pasta during the quickfire and then the flatbread.
I don’t know who the guy with Joe and Leeanne is. Something with an M. If you were to tell me he’s the only new contestant on the show, I would believe you.
Happy to have the show back.March 20, 2020 at 4:21 pm #1203388613

I was pretty annoyed when I saw these idiots follow Rob’s rule of staying put at camp, but thank God they were at least smart enough to vote him out. He’ll be back. If they have some sort of challenge to bring people back like they did on Blood vs Water (I think), Rob shouldn’t be able to work his way back, but the show will find a way. You’ll see.March 15, 2020 at 9:21 am #1203381941
Pretty obvious Geoffrey would win. It’s been that way for a while, but his collection obviously felt more new and fresh in the eyes of the judges. And everybody else, really. Victoria was the only other choice, but her collection didn’t feature that many “fashion” moments. Nancy has some nice pieces but she was never winning and even though Sergio had some amazing things, they were never gonna let go of the idea that his designs are outdated or whatever. When in reality, they’re fucking amazing and any star out there would wear them. So the minute the judges saw Geoffrey’s coats, they knew he was winning.
Victoria’s final look was amazing, but everybody’s collections were underwhelming. Geoffrey was an easy winner, even if his collection also had issues. Congrats to him because he did have a fantastic season.
Very much in love with this season. I thought it was pretty great and hopefully the Emmys don’t fuck up again giving Nailed It! of all things a nomination instead of this.
