Mondo Guerra's Take on 'Project Runway': Designers Create Looks for Eight Lucky Super-Fans
Mondo's Last Word
Helen's super-fan Jamie stole the show with the most dramatic makeover of the evening. But Jamie's near-model measurements didn't exactly challenge Helen's design skills. It's an impressive achievement from everyone's favorite dark princess but just not that original, in my opinion.
I thought it was Justin's turn to win. Not only did he capture the spirit of the challenge, he showed innovation with his "signature" embroidery and ambition by constructing a corset to help give his super-fan an extra boost of confidence.
Tristen chimed in on Justin's design on my Facebook fan page:
I was glad Ken was eliminated. If he hated that green fabric so much, it was his responsibility to inspire his client with something better. Throughout the season, I thought Ken's designs lacked innovation and imagination and his explosive temper gave me anxiety just watching the show. I can only imagine how his fellow competitors felt.
I was completely appalled by Ken's behavior. Wow. Really?? Inexcusable. He absolutely needs help and I hope he gets it. SOON. When I asked my Facebook fans what they thought about his outburst, almost 500 comments poured in expressing their disbelief.
Did Ken learn his lesson after seeing the episode? Apparently not. From his Facebook fan page:
Humble much, Ken...? (And what's a foot stood...?)
Although, to be honest, I was afraid Alexander was going home based on his poor execution. I think ambition was what made the difference here with the judges. Alexander was clearly thrown by his confrontation with Ken and it his construction definitely suffered.
What were your thoughts? Was Ken "outta order?" Which designer would you have wanted to design for you? Tell me all about it in the comments!
