I haven't watched any episodes this season and I didn't watch much of the last seasons. One reason I lost interest is the judges got rid of the good designers and kept the lousy ones. Project Runway was at it's best during the first four seasons. Not only were the designers good, but some of them were hilarious. Jay McCarroll, Austin Scarlet, and Chris March had me laughing every time I watched them. The show needs more contestants like them.

I haven't watched every season all the way through. I've seen the complete first season because of reruns and I've seen parts of some other seasons that way as well. I only recently had access to Bravo so I've not been watching that long, though I do know the designers you mentioned. In spite of all the drama and craziness, I like seeing what the designers come up with for the unconventional challenges - even though team challenges are painful, lol.

Whatever happened to that punk guy that won the 2005 season. I can't remember his name, but he was straight, and had kind of a black mullet and a really short temper with the other contestants? That was the last season of the show that I really got into. Although I didn't like his attitude, I did really like the work he did on there.

I've been watching the current season but I  haven't memorized any of the designers' names. i liked the challenge where they had to go to Coney Island and win giant stuffed animals at the booths, then make clothes out of them.

Some of the dresses were so nice that you couldn't tell that they were made out of stuffed animals from an amusement park.

The only way I can see all of a Project Runway season is to watch the whole season, all at once, in one sitting through the on demand feature. Otherwise, I get too bored before the panel of judges whittles away the designers lacking ciritical skills, like the contestants who have never used a sewing machine.

 

Once the number of contestants drops, things get really interesting with flaring tempers and questionable design "tastes". I like sitting on my couch and learning what the judges look for in garment design.

 

I hope I can shift that knowlege to my own jewelry design ideas.

 On past seasons ,there have been a couple of contestants that couldn't sew and had bad taste but the judges still kept them around because they were good at pushing buttons and making other designers mad.  That's one of the flaws of the show. Sometimes a less deserving designer gets to stay because they make for good television.

What was up with Sandro Masmanidi? The fellow who lost it and stormed out.

 

He confronted the judges asking them what they wanted to see from him and one of the judges, Zac Posen was really blunt. Then, Sandro went back to the green room where he verbally rippedthe skin off any female who dared speak to him.

 

I think he's a hardcore misogynist, but I could be really wrong.

 

How in the world do misogynists justify designing women's clothing, to themselves?

I was just looking up some of the former contestants on the show, and apparently Wendy Pepper from season one got divorced and is now working at a coffee shop. That has to kind of suck, going from making it big on TV to that. In similar news I heard John Gosselin is waiting tables now too.

TV doesn't last forever, especially reality TV. That's why when you get those big reality show checks, you should save them or start a small business so that you have money when your 15 minutes are up. Elisabeth Hasselback has really had quite the lucky life. She went from Survivor to being on The View for several years and being a happy married lady.

Most reality stars don't end up doing that well. American Idol seems to have helped a few people become major stars.

That guy's temper was scary. I think misogynists probably justify designing women's clothing to themselves by thinking that women are just sex objects to be dressed up in pretty clothes and they should be seen and not heard.

Well, she works at a coffee shop but a least a couple of small stores still carry her clothes. I guess she wasn't making enough steady sales to support herself, but at least her clothes are being sold somewhere locally, so she's still a part time designer.

While I am sad to hear about Wendy, John Gosselin deserves what ever he has to deal with.

 

Granted, Kate was a terrbile wife but he really screwed his kids over when he ruined their television prospects. Supporting all of those kids on what he makes is impossible, and Kate's going back to nursng won't help much.

I know this off topic but did you watch the Gosselins from the start ? I did form the time they were babies. I think Kate was the one who killed the show. Her personality was just plain outrageous and no one wanted to witness her nasty antics.John was not even on the last season of the show. I don't understand why John is waiting tables when for most of the show he worked as an IT specialist. As far as the two of them working regular job to support thier children, it can be done my grandparents  had eight children and they manged.

Well, I guess this means that no one else on this forum is watching Project Runway anymore, or at least has nothing to say about it. I am looking forward to the finale runway show this week and I hope my favorite designer will be the one to come out on top. It's been a crazy season with way too much drama, but at least the fashion has been interesting.

I have watched this show a few times. I love Tim ,he is a great mentor to the contestants. What put me off about the show was Heidi Klume. She comes off as stuck up and snippy, I know she was a fashion modle, and is a judge on the show , but she appears to be full of herself.

I've watched this show since the beginning. I've seen almost all of the seasons, I still need to watch a couple or so, but I absolutely love it. I am watching the current All-Stars season now. I really love Elena Slinvyak. I loved her on her season and I hope she wins this season. I don't like the fact that Heidi isn't the host of this season though.

Watching All-Stars without knowing who anyone is, because it's my first season! 

 

Sort of surprised these are the star performers, though.

When this show first came out I fell in love with how they came up with the idea to give people a chance to show their skills in making clothes. I have noticed that the more the show went on the more changes they made to it and that actually made lose interest in it a little, but I still watch it just feel like I lost my enthusiasm for it.

I used to love Project Runway, but now it just seems so repetitive. I was interested in it the first 4 seasons, but then the drama and the poorly made projects turned me off. I started watching other countries and thought they were much more interesting. Project Runway Canada and PR Australia are really good shows.

Yeah I do agree especially now that it seems like the are doing that new show "Under the Gunn" its based on Tim Gunn from Project Runway, I haven't even bothered to watch it. Not really sure if Project Runway isn't doing so good in ratings that they had to create something new to get fans interested again.

To my understanding Heidi Klume had to take time off for some reason. (another baby?) So they filled in with Under the Gunn. I have been recording them on my dvr but haven't watched them yet.  I like to binge watch the shows, but if there are people on here watching I might start watching them as they air so I can join in the conversations.

I respect Tim Gunn, but I'm not sure about "Under the Gunn." The show just seems a bit lukewarm compared to Project Runway and even to Fashion Star. Maybe the idea is to groom emerging designers who could then go on to compete on PR since they seem to have had some trouble the last few seasons keeping contestants past the first few challenges.
