    I fully believe they were told be be excited about Miss Piggy as their client. Their raving did not seem genuine. That said, it would be good press. Rami's dress was perfect for her. Muppets are for kids and Michael's dress was way too adult for her.

    For me this show is lacking without Heidi, Tim, Michael and Nina. I like them all but Tim and Heidi can carry a show with different judges. They are the backbone.

    I thought that Rami nailed it. I love, love, love Austin, but I thought his design was the worst.

    I agree both were pretty bad. What happened to Jerrell - all of his designs so far have been awful!!

    The shoulders looked too big and slipping off the model and the bust was horrid. Even if it was fitted properly I didn't like that combination of black lace and red fabric. Seriously, the bottom two dresses were Jerrell's and Austin's. Just Yuck.

    Austin was wayyyyyyy off this week too....for those that have said this whole season is a set up for Mondo he sure can't send any more crap like that down the runway and expect to win...I would like the final 4 to be Austin, Michael, Mondo and Rami IMO these four are the best I know I didn't name any women but I just haven't been as impressed by them this season as I have by the others

    No, there aren't; except gorgeous. I loved the Dorothy reference as well.

    I watched a bunch of episodes from season 1 recently and it reminded me that I didn't like Austin back then either. There's something very artificial about him - like he's playing a character instead of being genuine. It all feels like affectation to me. I didn't feel that way about Christian and you could hardly find someone more theatrical....maybe it's that I thought he was a better designer, so I didn't care

    I HAAATED that Miss Piggy dress. Steel grey and magenta? WTF? It was horrid. He should have gone home. It wasn't right for Miss Piggy or for any human woman.

    I'm think it should be Michael, Rami and maybe Mondo at the end, although I really haven't been very impressed with Mondo's work this season either.

    I've found that my crush on Rami has been renewed I thought his dress this week should have won. You could have shown me a picture of that dress and I would have known who it was designed for.

    For me. the only thing about Rami's is that I feel like I've already seen Miss Piggy in that dress, more than once. Also, I think where a lot of people thought Gordana's and Kenley's choice of pink was bad, Rami escaped comment for choosing pink AND polka dots. If the show wants us to play the game of talking about Miss Piggy like she's real, then I'd say the look is way too young for her.

    I think Michael was the right choice because he really listened to the challenge. The dress wouldn't be a winner in a different challenge, but for this one I don't think the make is as important. Even though he played the game of pretending to design for some real woman named Piggy, he actually designed a costume that would look good on a stocky foam puppet with huge ears.

    I noticed this - looking at the designs as stills, several of these designers literally designed their gear as Muppet Dress outfits (any Muppet):

    Mondo, Austin, Gordana, to a point Rami's and Kenley's. I've seen similar shapes or color schemes in these outfits.

    The one that seemed to be most literal to something worn by Miss Piggy was Austin's - because it SCREAMS IMHO inspired by "Pigs in Space" but with bad color schemes.

    I know I've seen a simliar shaped dress as Mondo's on some Muppet somewhere, just not the same colors.

    Gordana's is reminiscent of one of Miss Piggy's dressing gowns.

    Rami I agree made a dress similar to something Miss Piggy's worn, maybe a "GWTW" inspired dress.

    Still, out of all of them - Austin's you could've put her in and thrown her in "Pigs in Space" and none of them would've been the wiser. Even Statler and Waldorf couldn't have commented about her being out of place, and they're know for catching the obvious issues in those sketches.
