Jeffrey Wins By a Neck - Finale/Part 2

Last week's Sturm und Drang spilled over into this week's episode. The tension inside the Macy's workroom was getting a bit unbearable so Jeffrey decided to hang out on the terrace.

Since Jeffrey couldn't come up with the receipt for the pleatwork on the bubble shorts, he had to pull them from his collection.

Tim Gunn also told Jeffrey he was over his $8,000 budget. So, Jeffrey sent the blondes packing.

It is now the morning of the runway show. Laura's jittery nerves made it difficult for her to tame her wild tresses.

Jeffrey was the first to show. He said his collection was inspired by Japanese stories about ghosts and demons.

Uli was next with her tropical safari collection. She mixed an element of silver into her collection of flowy print dresses.

Laura went next with a bedazzling collection of beads, baubles and feathers. She said she wanted to pump up the volume. That's a good thing since the women in her target market have already started wearing hearing aids.

Michael said his collection was made possible by the Letter S. He said the Street Safari stuff was sexy, secure, sensual and sophisticated. I say it's slinky, sorta suggestive, slightly smutty and somewhat salacious.

Back on the Parsons runway later that day, Michael had to defend his taste level. Fern Mallis, guest judge for this episode, wished his collection could have lived up to his fans' expectations. Sadly it didn't.

Michael was the first designer to get the kiss-off. They then booted Laura for her limited repertoire. Now it was down to Uli and Jeffrey. The judges thought Jeffrey's collection had a bit more edge than Uli's, so they gave him the win.

Jeffrey is now telling everyone he created this dark brooding character and played it up on camera. I guess Heidi was right last season when she said everyone in L.A. is an actor. Maybe the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences could create a category just for him.

Tim Gunn is not one to sit around and twiddle his thumbs. Having the day job at Parsons was not enough for him. So after the show wrapped, he found himself a part time job.

I guess he can't wait for the new season to start. Well, neither can't I.

Thank you for helping me make this a fun site. We surely needed to find a way to amuse ourselves this season since the producers went all dramarama on us.

As much as I bitch about this season, I still like it a lot. At least it's still better than a lot of shows out there. Besides, as much as I dislike Vincent, and Angela, and Keith, and Jeffrey ... oh where was I going with this? Oh yeah, at least they were good fodder for some funny material.

What's next you ask? Well, I'll continue to do fun stuff on here and on Blogging Project Runway. Once I can wrap myself around Top Chef (and then Top Design in January) I'll certainly dish about them too!

There's a black T-shirt purposely sewn to the back of his jacket. That's his style. I thought he needed to use a Bounce dryer sheet more often to control those pesky static clings.

Please, please please continue your rants. Other shows (ie. Top Chef, America's Next Top Model, et. al.) beg for your photoshop treatment. I laughed so hard, my Victoria Secrets split in half.

OOOHHH! NOW I get it. I didn't notice the tshirt either. But then I've always been a tad slow. Loved the rest.

You know I love you Phaolo. All the images, genius. Please keep it Bravo-centric. Top Chef and Project Design.
Was betting on horses, Jeffrey
Wins by a Neck, YOU? psychic genius.
Errh, Are you sure Heidi didn't eat a schnitzel or spatzle instead?
But then, it was NYC.
Please make it interactive again. I love to come here and play!

Dr. Tim: "...drop your shorts!"
I had to pick myself up off the floor where I fell laughing to write this!

It's karmic intervention. If only Laura didn't bring up Sewgate, Jeffrey wouldn't have lost the bubble shorts and the wigs!
It could have been anybody's game.
Gargoyle Jeffrey is too sweet. Angel Jeffrey?
