Babbred,Originally Posted by Babbred;4094358People pooh-poohed me last time when I mentioned a conspiracy. I began to doubt myself. Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it really was nothing but bad judging. I'm sorry, but now I'm back to my original opinion. [B
you are so right on all the points you made here!!! couldn't agree more.
but you left out one more item that would make a Lifetime movie.
Besides all you mentioned, don't forget that an assertive woman is often called a B**tch. (They did make a big thing about that with Gretchen)
Personally, I don't think Gretchen should have even been in the final 3. She was very good at the begining but that was it. I kept thinking she'd be "auf'd" in the later competetions. There is no doubt in my mind that her win was subjective/planned. Her designs represented too many things that others have been disqualified for, such as ready to wear, monochromatic, bloomers, etc etc.
I think Tim saw this happening a lot sooner than we did and therefore, his quote about crack smoking judges, removal of vlogs and then no blogs/vlogs at all towards the end.
Also I saw a clip of his congratulations to Gretchen on another show and they made fun of how blah it was. Tim being Tim is always gracious but even he couldn't summon up a lot of enthusiasm.
Shame on Lifetime. :nono
