    8/23 Show Discussion Thread **West Coast Spoilers**

    The designers make new outfits for women who just got new haircuts.

    So, it's like the Avant Garde challenge from S4, except it will be completely ordinary.

    The forum threads will be reopened after the show airs on the West coast (10:30PM PT/1:30AM ET).

    Enjoy the show!

    That sounds ... silly to be honest.

    Interesting reactions to "normal" clients. Can't believe Ven's attitude. As a plus size woman, I want to slap him.

    Every season they have a challenge like this, and every time there's a contestant who discovers--gasp! shock!--that, like, OMG there are women out there who aren't a size 0. This is also my least favorite challenge.

    Obligatory product placement for L'Oreal Hair Color. Yawn. Not going to make me change from my favorite brand.


    This a show for reversals. Gunnar is showing a human side by loving on his client and mentioning how he misses his family, so now I like him. Ven has completely and utterly lost any respect or nice feeling I had for him. I'm only halfway through the episode, but I'm turning down the volume until judging time because I'm sick of his disgusting attitude toward his client. I don't care how beautiful his clothes are from here on out, I won't root for him.

    Oh, Ven. Open mouth, insert foot, ankle, leg....... I'm sorry, but I will no longer be rooting for you.

    Ven is a plus-sized man. He must be full of self-loathing.

    You may remember a couple of weeks ago I posted a comment stating I didn't get the vibe that Ven was arrogant as much as confident and soft-spoken because of his culture.

    Ummm, yeah. Scratch that.

    Great observation! So where's your dinky little dog collar belt, hmmmm? I'm glad the other designers are calling him out on it. I hope they speak up on the runway, or that his client does. If I were the judges, I'd give them an earful and then walk out and let Ven defend himself sans client.


    This is also one of the rare times that I wish the show let America vote on the contestants.

    I'm a few minutes behind on the show and just got a load of that top Ven made--holy sale Lane Bryant sale rack, Batman! Cheap, shiny fabric, visible seams, and utterly too voluminous. I mean, he could have gone with a totally safe DVF-style wrap dress in a vibrant color or print. He might not win, but he wouldn't make his client cry.

    Yowzah. The judges surely did deliver Ven his come-uppance. Unfortunately, however, I suspect he will be safe based on his previous showings being so strong. Meh.
