 Hey you guys, it’s SB and I’m a TOTAL asshole.  I went out of town on Friday morning and completely forgot Project Runway would be new, so I’ve left Seels’ review in blog purgatory all weekend.  I’m sorry, Seels!  I hope you (and all your faithful readers) can forgive me!  Still, I know that any new TV (and also any new non-Olympics blog posts) are like a beautiful oasis in the desert, so enjoy this and leave lots of comments and love for Seels to make up for my douchitude. :) –SB

Ugh…from just the previews, I was already dreading this episode. I was just talking with my sister the other day about how I don’t want children, but wouldn’t mind to have babies. I kind of want to like adopt babies and then pass them on to better families for all the other stuff. I could do late nights and no sleep and diapers and all of that over and over again, but the idea of dance recitals and soccer games and shopping for prom dresses, all of that makes me want to break out in hives. Hey, too much information, right?

So 11 ‘super cute’ squealing girls in the work room for a PR challenge is moving to yikes territory for me.

But, I was willing to give it a shot. For you, and also to see what nervous breakdown Janeane has this week. But mostly for you. And you’re welcome.

Hey, TV lovers, Happy Friday! Isn’t it awesome when we are right? And we are so right about Mila, aren’t we? I LOVE that the producers and editors for the show practically led this epi off with her telling the camera that she wasn’t sure why no one was excited that she was in the top two in the previous challenge. Maybe it’s about jealousy, she says, or maybe it’s that no one thinks she deserves that. Well, yes. It’s one of those.

This week’s challenge was to design an outfit to be worn by a celebrity on the COVER of Marie Claire magazine. Who is the celebrity? None other than Heidi Klum. Emilio says that’s huge. I hope he’s talking about her celebrity value and not her pregnancy boobs.

Welcome to a Ping-less Project Runway. Were you just a teensy bit sad like I was? Also, I’m thinking that one day I would love to be as skinny and beautiful as a pregnant Heidi Klum.

After last week, I thought maybe I was a little too harsh on Mila, but then she opened the episode straightening that bob of hair and talking about missing her dog. Yeah, I don’t feel too bad. But I’m not dog hater! Really, I’m not! What made me cringe was that my current fave, Maya, feels as if she is a kindred spirit to Mila! Boo! Unless it turns into some classic mentor/mentoree type thing where they face off in a duel in the end and Mila is shown to be weaker than her student, I will not be pleased if they become pals.

This week’s challenge involved the Campbell’s Soup company and their initiative to support the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement. The designers are to create this year’s signature dress for the ‘Campbell’s Address your Heart’ Program. Red must be a prominent color in the design and the Campbell brand must be evident, AND their models are women who have been affected in some way by heart disease. It’s a one day challenge.

I liked this episode, and this challenge. Real life women models are the shiz, and I thought they all seemed cool.

Oh, and before we start the runway discussion, did Janeane really run through Mood saying that she needed to get her boning? Yesssssssssssss!

So after I watched the end of this episode, I realized that maybe I shouldn’t be recapping this show,  as it seems I have no taste in fashion whatsoever. So far this year, I haven’t been too impressed with the winners of each challenge. In fact, I’ve been dead wrong.  The good thing that came out of this week is that I do believe I may have chosen a mortal enemy.

You all know what I mean; every once in awhile, there is just one designer that makes you tune in, just to hope for his or her failure, but also to secretly revel in the evil they seem to cause each week, knowing full well that it will be many moons until the judges actually kick them off, on account of the great ratings they get.  Wendy, Santino, Irina, and now this year’s…

Mila.

Y’all, I didn’t know that Project Runway eps had titles. I just figured it was like “Season Five, Episode 3” or whatevs, but this one is actually called “The Fashion Farm”. I don’t usually watch the Models of the Runway or whatever that show is, but does anyone else get the feeling that they care more about that show than this one? WTF … letting the models pick the designers they wanted?

This week’s challenge is a one day challenge to create a party-worthy look out of a potato sack. They are allowed some other materials, and in another ‘twist’, the models are also the clients. Watch out, Tim Gunn … the models are probably coming after your job next!

Onto the rest of the episode. During the time in the sewing lab/workroom, it looks like the producers are turning Mila into this year’s villain. Tim walked around and gave his ‘encouragement’ which, as always, is really barely veiled questions designed to make anyone like me feel like a failure as a person just for watching. I kid, I kid; Tim’s a good guy. His runway day tie matched the walls of the workroom. In other news, I thought it was high comedy when Jay was sitting alone in the workroom at midnight, all dramatic and what not.
