    I've watched the seasons pretty consistently and I must say, it feels like this season didn't get going until the drag queen episode last week. I guess reality tv really is like jazz music. Anyway, what I see...

    *Kenley & Korto will be in Bryant Park as well as Leanne (is that her name) I'd guess

    *Blayne is being kept by the sheer force of his personality (sorry, I just don't see it with his stuff)

    *I REALLY don't see what's keeping Stella "I do leatha" in the competition. Her designs are subpar at best and frankly it's surprising Kelly (the blonde who did the animal prints) left before her. Grommits and complaints are all she seems to bring to the table. Please Heidi, give her an "Auf" soon

    *The stylists for Mrs. Klum must hate her on this season because she is not looking together overall

    *Tim Gunn needs to stay out of St. Barthes so he doesn't look like a beet next time

    Any thoughts? Are you guys enjoying this season? How does it compare to the others in your opinion?

    Sorry to see Keith go last night. Heidi clothes have been looking really bad.
    Have to say Terry is my favorite and she keeps losing the challenges.

    of course a show like this has to rely on the charisma of the competitors and that's been lacking to a degree this season.
    if you look back at the start there were lots of girls whom i couldn't tell apart.
    leanne and jennifer...which was which??
    kenley and emily... umm is that betty paige???

    but now that 6 are gone the editors can focus on the the bigger personalities.
    which helps give the show more life.

    and i agree the drag queen ep really pumped some much needed adrenaline into the competition.

    they don't have the 3 members team event for this season too, well not yet...

    i think the challenges for this season is pretty boring.

    My candidates for final 3: Jarell, Korto, Leanne

    I'm enjoying the season so far; I think for any reality show it takes some time to really focus on the personalities after eliminating some of the contestants.

    The guys are the worst though, half of them have been cut, so we're left with Suede's "third person" speak, Blaynelicious, Mr. Straight Guy (wonder how many times we'll be reminded), and Jerell - okay, he's fun to watch.

    My pick for the final three are Terri (can't believe no one mentioned her), Korto, and Leanne... hmmm... that's a toughie - I like Kenley's style better than Leanne's but I think she'll end up getting cut.

    Agree about Blayne, haven't seen anything from him that's good, just shocking.

    Stella did surprise me a couple of times with decent stuff.

    The "straight guy" has also surprised me as well.

    Terri has done great pretty much every challenge.

    Kenley & Korto both seem extremely talented.

    I was a bit upset to see the cute Utah guy go,icon_biggrin.gif
    although in this pack of competitors, he seemed weak.

    He was good looking, but that tiny pony tail he had... argh it drove me nuts! icon_evil.gif Did anyone else keep hoping one of the other competitors would just sneak up behind him and snip it off?

    what the hell was that skirt?

    I agree with most of you all: the finalist selections (Korto and Kenley, but I think that Suade will also make it), that Stella and her leather needs to leave high-fashion and that Blair is nothing special (must be that he is missing his licious tan)

    As far as the quality of the show, I tend to disagree. I think that the challenges have been different and have required them to be more innovative (green fabrics, recycled car parts, the Olympic challenge, the drag queen). They go from non-traditional materials, to sports wear, to costume...that to me shows versatility.

    All in all it is still a great show. Too bad it will move to lifetime and completely change.

    If I have to hear another story about Suede's dead relatives speaking to him from the grave and dictating designs I'm going to scream!

    Keith is definitely hot, and I think had a lot of potential, but he managed to let is crabby attitude get in the way. I've been through plenty of critiques in art and design courses, and they're not much fun, but they do provide valuable insight from multiple perspectives. A smart artist uses criticism to refine his talent.

    Kenley is a bitch, and I hate her haircut, but I think she's the best designer on the show.

    Guys, i think season 4 was the best.
    These guys now for the most part have no originality or talent, and that kinda sucks.
    The challenges haven't brought anything innovative either...
    And Keith is gone *tear*

    I was also really bummed Keith left. But, after his little hissy fit with the judges, I knew his time was up.

    Wow! Great guesses - my favorites were Jerrell and Korto - and Korto's collection was my favorite (Leanne's was okay - but too bland for me).

    i thought this season was missing in both personality AND talent...although i thought the challenges were better.

    Korto should have won hands down. I loved her designs she is going to go far.

    Leanne took home the top prize which was ok.But I was getting sea-sick with waves in every single piece that hit the run way. What was up with that? icon_rolleyes.gif


    Kenley and those ropes! OMG was a train wreak! I was glad that she did not win what a brat.

    I guess every season needs a villian and she was this seasons!

    I thought Wesley was much cuter than Keith and much less of a cry baby.
    Or maybe I thought he was cuter because he was less of a cry baby.

    (small voice)...I also thought Blayne was kinda funny. (/small voice)

    Thought it was a very good closer for Bravo. Excellent shows by all 3, all produced very viable designs and finished product.

    Won't be the same setting this show in LA on Lifetime ...

    I agree.... the prize should have been Kotoh's.
    There... now I have just admitted that I am a closet PR watcher! icon_rolleyes.gif
