Is it me, or has the show gone overboard with the "extra challenges" they threw at the finalists this year? First they tell them that all four get to make collections BUT only 3 of them will compete, then they have to make their collections PLUS a wedding gown, then when they get back to NYC, they have to ALSO make a bridesmaid's gown to complement the wedding gown?
At some point, are they ever going to make any of these people feel like they actually earned their spot in the finals? If the judges are this unsure, they should just declare "No winner this year!" and let them all show at Bryant Park for the exposure. But this passive-aggressive piling-on of more hoops for them to jump through sends all the wrong signals, at least to me.
