Project Runway: The Three Fuss-keteers - Here's The Rankings!
Commentary and Rankings by RTVC Senior Staff Writer Donna Emery
September 9, 2012
This week on Project Runway, the story was less about the winner than it was about the many losers.
One of the losers went home, but more than one inexplcably remain on the show. Such is life, in reality TV.
The week's task was about fall fashion but it split the nine remaining designers into groups of three, and since some of the designers don't know how to play nicely with others, the drama between one group dominated the episode.
In previous episodes, Elena has shown her disdain for several of the other designers; especially Dmitry. The feeling is, and has been, mutual. She bristles at suggestions and doesn't know the meaning of "collaboration." Although it seems she has few good or original ideas, she has scathing words for anyone else's ideas.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
For some reason, though, the Project Runway site has her in a runaway lead for fan favorite. She must either have lots of hometown and family fans, or Project Runway voters must be doing their own version of "vote for the worst."
While Elena isn't necessarily the worst designer remaining, and not the worst designer in this episode, her snappsishness and negativity made it difficult to root for her team. Dmitry has been one of my favorite designers, this season, but when he and Elena have to work together it brings out the worst in Dmitry.
Dmitry is a creative designer and while his dislike of Elena may have made him even more testy than usual, he couldn't break away from the tension he felt when working with her and decided, instead to do a garment of his own.
Each group of three designers was charged with making two outfits with an autumnal theme. Although asking three people to make two outfits meant they'd have no choice but to collaborate (which was part of the point of the assignment).
Before the teams could make their outfits, they had to work together to create T-shirts, which they were asked to sell in order to earn money for fabric to make their projects.
Some relished the thought of breaking out the glitter and markers; Elena cringed and griped through the entire thing. Many tried to make smiley faces or clever designs; Elena made random squiggles and grumpy faces.
