(Last week's) Project Runway recap
If only every episode of Project Runway could be as funny as last week's "dish" episode. Yes, of course, there were the obligatory "How did you feel when..." questions, and Guadalupe was either high or drunk, which was amusing in and of itself, but I loved the flashback montages--of Santino talking shit, of Santino imitating Tim Gunn, of Nick and Santino singing about Daniel Franco, and so on. Hilarious. Also, I felt vindicated when several designers mentioned that Nick should've been in the top three. But otherwise, it was more like a recap episode than anything else. Which is okay, because now that the Olympics are over, I'm ready for the finale. Somewhat annoyingly, it's in two parts, airing this week and next, and already America's Next Top Model is starting up again this week (with the "where are they now" starter episode this week), so my TV schedule is getting rather crowded. But more on that later.

I also watched Project Jay, which was originally supposed to be an entire series but was boiled down into an hour-long special instead. I love Jay, and the show was entertaining, but, I don't know, it was kind of sad too. I admire Jay for sticking to his morals and not accepting the prize money, and I love his outspokenness, but I kind of wonder if he's going to need to tone it down a bit to survive in the business world, because there's a difference between being frank and biting the hand that feeds you.

So, who will win Project Runway? I think I'll have a better idea after Wednesday, but I'm guessing it's Santino, based on what I've seen and heard. Then again, last year I thought it was totally in the bag for Kara Saun, so who knows what might happen? I'll post my recap Wednesday night.
