My thoughts in closing:
I'm glad Kimberly won. She has a soothing personality and if for some reason I should ever catch her again on TV, I'd watch her over Mitch anyday.
This was a reality show for entertainment. If they were truely looking for the next great stylemaker, all they would've had to do was comb the major cities. There's many who are already established as power stylemakers ala Martha Stewart.
Aside from her gauranteed Early Morning Show appearances, I'd say it'll be a cold day in Hades before Kim bags her own show. Noticed the phrase of "having the chance" to star in their own TV show? Same goes for Mitch. He wouldn't have faired any better. There's already one Christopher Lowell- no need for another one.
I do think they will succeed, just on a local level. I can see them becoming well known in their region. I'm sure Kimberly's asking price for dinner parties just shot through the roof.
It was an amusing show, but it was pretty clear from the start that none of the contestants had a certain "It" factor, save for Darlene (just my opinion on her).
