Personally I think Micheal C. deserved to be booted. He bugs! I don't know what about him bugs me but he just seems a little bit fake and he's always so meek and like apologetic in front of the judges. Grow some back bone! Also, several times he admitted on they show that he hated someone's outfit or whatever but would then praise it to their face. I get that people hated him, but usually if several people don't like someone they might have a good reason (that maybe the cameras aren't showing? I thought his collection was fine, but once again it was just all drapey clothes. Maybe they decided to let him go because they agreed that the taste level was lacking or that he really didn't sew as well as the others. While I liked his stuff better than Gretchens it was all kind of the same, not just the same color. I pretty much agreed with what the judes said about it. I was embarrassed for him when he was crying that hard and couldn't even say goodbye to Heidi. It's obvious to me that Andy, Gretchen and Mondo all have superior sewing/tailoring skills to Micheal C. And I feel like just that should get them farther than him. I mean his draping got him that far and he should be proud of it. Having said that I hate Gretchen and her clothes/ final line. She gets on my last nerve. And that African, 80s looking garbage she put out was horrendous. I felt like her models belonged on that show Coming to America with Eddie Murphy. She is always wanting her models to "look like her" and "be off the street" but that's obviously not what the judges want to see. They want high fashion, showmanship like they said. I don't know why they picked her other than maybe ya she's a girl and she had good accessorizing early on/is a skilled seamstress? The judges must be aware of stuff that goes on back stage and I guarantee producers have a say. All these reality shows aren't that real. They have to create drama or no one would watch. so...I LOVE MONDO! I did not like his stuff at first, but he is just so good at what he does and his clothes are fun and different and very runway I think. So I'll be rooting for him. But who really cares, it seems the people who don't win you often hear more of then those who do...(Santino/Austin?). Apparently they all get pretty good jobs/publicity after this.
