Project Runway is BACK (finally)
After a TEN month hiatus,
(Yes, you heard me, ten fucking months, not ten days, nor ten weeks or the usual 3 to 4 month hiatus of normal shows, but TEN awesomely fucking grueling long months of no Project Runway)
Project Runway is FINALLY back.
So before I begin on why the hell happened to Project Runway had to be on the shelf for Ten Fucking Months, allow me to explain what Project Runway is. This is for all of you idiotic, dumb, oblivious, frogs-under-the-well, stupid, foolish, ah lien, ah beng, bloody-asian-sovereign, tacky, pathetic hermits that have disappeared from the face of this earth for five years for some fucking reason that I do not care about but am extremely grateful and glad that you were gone for the past five years because I am pretty sure I will fucking hate your fucking shittastic guts if you were around which you are now.
Project Runway is a reality television competition where 16 designers will compete to win. The prizes are an editorial feature in Marie Clarie magazine, $100,000 to start their own line and an all expenses paid trip for 2 to Paris (which I have been to before, just wanna add, lol). Every week, the designers will be put to the test in a series of challenges where they will be eliminated one by one. The challenges generally will require them to create a garment of non traditional materials (car parts), for a celebrity (Brooke Shields), for a corporate fashion line (Diane Von Furstenberg) or a specialized theme (Prom Night), or a specific client (WWE Divas). The designers are usually required to create the garment within a limited amount of time usually one or two days before the runway show. The final three designers will be given the opportunity to present their collection in Bryant Park where only one will be the winner. The models paired with the designer are in a competition too. The model paired with the winning designer will win $25,000 from L'Oreal and a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine.
Heidi Klum is the host and judge of the show. On the panel, she is joined by Micheal Kors, fashion designer and Nina Garcia, Fashion Editor of Marie Claire Magazine. The designers are mentored by Tim Gunn, chief creative officer of Liz Claireborne. For more information, just find the wikipedia for 'Project Runway'.
The idiotic, dumb, oblivious, frogs-under-the-well, stupid, foolish, ah lien, ah beng, bloody-asian-sovereign, tacky, pathetic hermits that have disappeared from the face of this earth for five years for some fucking reason that I do not care about but am extremely grateful and glad that you were gone for the past five years because I am pretty sure I will fucking hate your fucking shittastic guts if you were around which you are now has ended.
Now, let me just give you guys the summary for the reason why Project Runway was sidelined for Ten Fucking Months.
The producers for this show, The Weinstein Company decided to leave Bravo and headed towards Lifetime, ie they switched networks. Which then NBC who owns Bravo decided to sue the Weinstein Company which was settled in April, then Lifetime decided to air it on August 20, 2009. Which ended with me saying 'Fuck.'
Now, other than changing networks. The sixth season of Project Runway is in Los Angeles instead of New York. Other than that, their studio is now the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) instead of Parsons The New School of Design. Also, Nina Garcia jumped ship from being an Editor-at-Large of Elle Magazine to Fashion Editor of Marie Claire magazine.
Other than Project Runway, Lifetime has another show for the models of Project Runway called Models of the Runway. Its something like America's Next Top Model, only it has half an hour and no challenges, oh and there is no, Tyra, haha.
Man, Ten Fucking Months of no Project Runway is fucking depressing, but I have to say its worth the wait. Other than a new sister channel (Models), they also have an All Star Challenge, featuring 8 of the past favorites.
Daniel Vosovic, Santino Rice, Sweet P, Chris March, Korto Momolu, Mycheal Knight, Jeffrey Sebelia and Uli Herzner battle to compete for another shot of $100,000. Where the fuck is Kenley Collins, Rami Kashou and Jillian Lewis? Jeffrey already won $100,000 back in Season 3!
Damn, anyways, its good to have them back. Thank god. I didn't know that no Project Runway is making me getting a shortage on insulting women's poor fashion sense, lol. Well, TV is not going to be boring no more, lol. I cannot wait till me weekly youtubing sessions start.
This season of Project Runway promises to be fun and dramatic like previous ones, can't wait to catch more of it. Now I would rather stare at the computer and wait for Youtube to stream them, but if you have the patience, then please go ahead and wait for another, I dunno... Ten Fucking Months for the Malaysian Premiere.
As for my busy TV season coming up in September:
I am DEFINITELY going to watch these shows: Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, Gossip Girl, America's Next Top Model, Ugly Betty, Private Practice, Eastwick and Cougar Town.
I am going to TRY and watch these though: Hank, 90210, Melrose Place, One Tree Hill and Beautiful Life.
