If Tim considers him one of his most disliked in all the seasons, he must do something pretty serious to make him a villain. At this point he's dislikable but definitely not the worst I've seen on this show.
Joshua is certainly unstable emotionally. He's freaking out one minute and crying the next and then yelling a minute after that. I predict he'll crash and burn soon.
I'm sure this must sound like I really hate Josh. I don't. But I really don't think people can behave any way they want to, regardless of others' feelings and be excused for it by dimissing it as the fault of youth or emotional issues. Who hasn't been young (and dumb) once? Who hasn't had tragedies and sorrow in their life? And yet, others can behave better even with the same situations Josh has in his life.

I was also thinking that the "villian" turns out to be Viktor. I love the conjecture about somebody discovering Anja's money and saying nothing......and I hope it was caught on tape!! That could be anybody!!!
I love that she WON that challenge where she was so severely handicapped!
When you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, you know which one you hit by the one that yelps!
Had to laugh (groan) at Josh on the ferry...saying that with the wind in his face he could FINALLY take a moment to congratulate himself on how far (fabulous) he had come (was). I thought we'd been pretty much treated to nothing but self-congratulation from him since the first episode! The man makes me crazy, and I was so hoping he'd be auf'd. That ridiculous skirt, shirt and huge vest was horrible. And his insistence that Anya won the $20,000 because she's a beauty queen and not a designer was so rude.
Still, I like his and Bert's designs the best out of all of them. I like Anya's work and think she is the most fashion-forward of the bunch, but I would never be a consumer of her designs. They are for a much wealthier demographic that I can't relate to.
Joshua may make some changes when he views himself on TV. It will give his friends an opportunity to talk to him about this too, having the visual tool to help.
I'm not much of a people person myself and tend to rub many people the wrong way, which frustrates me because I really mean no harm and people misunderstand me a lot. I'm just not always very good at explaining what I mean.
I got more of a sense that Burt was 'misunderstood' because he had trouble making his meaning clear and seemed to find interacting with others difficult at times. By the end though, he was clearly having a much better time and seemed to be having fun getting along with the other designers.
Josh on the other hand is not misunderstood, he's catty and apparently enjoys tearing others down while he gossips and snipes in an attempt to remind himself of how great he is. This last episode had him making nasty remarks about Anya and pretty much everyone else to his helper (can't even remember the guy's name! ha!) constantly, and moaning about the fact that she won because she's a beauty queen who can't sew and she basically robbed him of $20,000. I think he knows exactly what he's doing and saying, but he's probably always interacted with others this way so it's part of who he is.
