@nyadrn - I like the competitions like "Project Runway" and "Top Chef", as long as the contestants focus on what they're supposed to be creating, and avoid the "smack talk" about other contestants.

 

Now that I think about it, "The Voice" seems to be the only show where the contestants genuinely seem to like each other, and learning from them .. even when they're competing against them. I can't recall any of them bad-mouthing a fellow contestant. They leave that to the Coaches picking on each other .. LOL!

Margarita's design "got lost" (her words) one episode, because she was so busy watching what Claire was doing. I agree that they should have informed Tim earlier, then gone back to their own work.

 

But you have to wonder if it's like the other reality shows, in that off-camera producers are asking designers questions .. and for their comments on their competitors .. and those are the usually snarky remarks that show up each episode!


@ASTRAEA  True. It could be that the producers court the drama.  They don't need to. The dhow is good without it. IMHO

I think that if they all realized that Claire had been cheating all along, they should have gotten together & informed Tim sooner .. and not during a runway show. I don't like people who cheat.


@ASTRAEA  I did not like how he walked off the runway. They should have told Tim and let him handle it.

Michael is out.  I did not like his actions on the runway regarding the twins so I was glad to see him go!

Good point. I had no idea it could be that serious!
