Jeffrey's outfits also looked the same way when he got to Bryant Park. What was the time line from when Tim visited Jeffrey and going to Bryant Park? It's very possible that Jeffrey's collection was finished when Tim visted him.

    I just know I'm pretty sick of this show. It's less and less about fashion every week and more about contrived situations and totally obnoxious people. I'm not going to bother watching any more after this season.

    You pretty much answered the why did they let Jeffrey show anyway point. Last season they did this very same thing. Someone showed that was cut before the final show, just so people didn't know who got cut.

    I agree 100% with you about the show becoming less and less about fashion. I was really disappointed when this situation came up. I was really hoping for just a straight fashion show where talent wins. I watch plenty of other reality tv shows to see this type of drama. Project Runway used to be refreshingly about talent and fashion, not ratings ploys.

    In it, Christina Applegate plays a teen who has to get a job to take care of her sibs one summer. She fudges a resumé, and works as a fashion designer. She 'hires' her siblings and friends (without pay) to help her put on the fashion show. All the while she's been dipping into petty cash at work to feed the household.

    When the fashion show is a success, a jealous girl at work accuses her of embezzling. The boss begrudgingly agrees to ask Christina about this. Christina fudges some receipts and presents the box full of receipts where petty cash used to be. Happy ending.

    I'm not drawing comparisons, but those scenes kept coming to mind. Conclusion? This dilemma would all make a fairly entertaining early 1990s Blockbuster rental.

    You are just too funny!

    I loved that movie, by the way!

    I think Project Runways is still about talent and fashion -- but it just so happens that there was SO MUCH drama this year between the contestants. They got lucky.

    Have you guys seen the video clip on people. com? I can't post the URL for some reason, but go check it out. It would appear that Jeffrey
    Click to see Spoiler:
    is being questioned about some shorts that he cannot produce a receipt for.


    I would like to think the guy's not guilty, even though I can't stand him, I like his clothes, but he looked so incredibly guilty when Tim asked for his receipts. It really looks like he has something to hide. A look like that has nothing to do with editing and everything to do with guilt.

    I am definitely on the train that Jeff shows but is eliminated from consideration to win.
    Tim didn't say that in that context. What happened was when Tim came in, Uli said, 'Laura has something to say to you.' Tim then suggested they go outside.

    [mod edit] He "looked incredibly guilty" gathering his receipts because the producers edited it to look that way. Why didn't they focus on Laura, Michael or Uli gathering their receipts? Because they are not the ones being accused of cheating.

    Actually, Tim did say it in that context. Listen to Tim Gunn's mp3/podcast on the Project Runway site. He explains what happened very clearly. What Bravo did change/edit was when the whole thing happened. The whole thing actually happened when Tim was collecting the receipts. He could tell that Laura was upset about something and didn't want to talk in front of the others. According to Tim, "there was obvious tensions in the room." So he asked her if she wanted to speak outside on the balconey.

    And the Uli comment you are thinking of was to Jeffrey (not Tim) when he came back in the room. Laura said that she would tell Jeffrey to his face about her concerns. So when he came back in, Uli made sure that Laura did so by telling Jeffrey that "Laura has something to say to you."

    So basically, Jeffrey's receipt gathering guilty look is due to being confronted prior and editing makes it look as though his guilty look is why they confronted him....interesting.
    Yup, with donuts!!
