    Re: Ven Budhu - Season 10

    NBC News posted an article yesterday at 'Project Runway's' real-size model: Show was 'adult bullying at its best' - The Clicker. She said it was worse than what was shown. (She also said that she was a size 10 during shooting, which seems a bit off to me, but I'm not a really good judge of estimating people's sizes.)

    The great thing for her now with Michael offering to make her dress is (I assume) that he'll be able to take more time and I think she'll get a better made dress! IIRC Michael is a very fast sewer so he might not need extra time but he won't be on PR time contraints.

    I hope all the negativity will somehow get through to Ven but if he could defend his behavior after watching himself on tv I have my doubts it will matter.

    I hope his business takes a nose dive for this. Heaven forbid if he's the actual winner though...that would be a PR nightmare for the show, after this debacle.

    If --- by some ungodly stretch of the imagination --- Ven wins this, it'll probably be the end of "Project Runway".

    And THAT would be a GOOD thing!

    However, I truly don't believe the "Project Runway" PTB, judges, etc., would be stupid enough to allow that to happen.

    Re: Ven Budhu - Season 10

    I don't know. Project Runway has had some unlikable people on before, and unfortunately they've done pretty well in the competition. I couldn't stand Jeffrey and he was really rude to his client in one of the real women challenges but went on to win his season. So apparently a designer's attitude doesn't affect their chances of winning.

    That's ok, though, because things are different in the real world. Even if Ven does win this season, he still got to face all the women who watched this show and wouldn't buy his outfits because they disapprove of how he treated Terri and wouldn't want to be treated the same way by him. I realize there are plenty of women who don't watch Project Runway but I think this will have some impact on his success.

    Episode 7 - The designers were given one day to create a dress that could retail for between $200 and $300 at Lord & Taylor. The winning look would be included in a capsule collection by previous Project Runway designers.

    Re: Ven Budhu - Season 10

    Either in this thread or the thread for last week's show, someone brought up the possibility of whether Ven might have Asperger's Syndrome. I have a close friend whose son has it, and his "social skills" are definitely not what one would expect from someone of his age.

    The following is from a webpage on Asperger Syndrome and Adults.


    Asperger syndrome is one of the autism spectrum disorders, and is classified as a developmental disorder that affects how the brain processes information. People with Asperger syndrome have a wide range of strengths, weaknesses, skills and difficulties.

    Common characteristics include difficulty in forming friendships, communication difficulties (such as a tendency to take things literally), and an inability to understand social rules and body language. Asperger syndrome is also known as Asperger Disorder.

    Although Asperger syndrome cannot be cured, appropriate intervention and experience can help individuals to develop skills, compensatory strategies and help build up coping skills. Social skills training, which teaches individuals how to behave in different social situations, is often considered to be of great value to people with Asperger syndrome.

    Counselling or psychological therapy (including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) can help people with Asperger syndrome understand and manage their behavioural responses.

    Symptoms of Asperger syndrome

    More males than females are diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. While every person who has the syndrome will experience different symptoms and severity of symptoms, some of the more common characteristics include:

    Average or above-average intelligence
    Difficulties with high-level language skills such as verbal reasoning, problem solving, making inferences and predictions
    Difficulties in empathising with others
    Problems with understanding another person’s point of view
    Difficulties engaging in social routines such as conversations and ‘small talk’
    Problems with controlling feelings such as anger, depression and anxiety
    A preference for routines and schedules which can result in stress or anxiety if a routine is disrupted
    Specialised fields of interest or hobbies.

    The emotions of other people:

    A person with Asperger syndrome may have trouble understanding the emotions of other people, and the subtle messages sent by facial expression, eye contact and body language are often missed or misinterpreted. Because of this, people with Asperger syndrome might be mistakenly perceived as being egotistical, selfish or uncaring.

    These are unfair labels because the person concerned is neurologically unable to understand other people’s emotional states. People with Asperger syndrome are usually shocked, upset and remorseful when told their actions were hurtful or inappropriate.

    Was his behavior beyond what we all think was kind? Yes. But maybe . . . just maybe . . . he's not just arrogant or egotistical or uncaring. Maybe he has a neurological deficiency.

    Re: Ven Budhu - Season 10

    Can you imagine anyone above a AA bra size trying to wear that flower on top?? Someone on the show last night said it would grow into a BIG flower on anyone with breasts. Then again, if Ven has his way he won't design for anyone that isn't a size 0 with model's breasts, so he'll be happy. Broke, but happy.

    Re: Ven Budhu - Season 10

    Episode 8 - The designers were divided into three teams of three. They had to do fundraising in the park to get materials this week and could sell t-shirts or tote bags decorated with paint, glitter, and sparkles, or give fashion advice, do alterations, etc. With their earnings, they had to make two Fall outfits, one of which must include outerwear.

    Ven made the shirt and skirt for this outfit. Melissa made the jacket. Fabio worked on their other outfit.
