Let's just begin with this:

Is that a "unibang"? Or would it just be called a "bang"? Would "bangs" also be correct because it refers to the multiple locks of hair that are greased together?

But in all seriousness:

Lots of talent this season. Also lots of crazies. Looking forward to seeing the meltdowns and the miracles!

I agree that this is a strong bunch, but Gunnar needs to shape up or ship out. 5 minutes into the episode I was DONE!

I'm glad they kept the Japanese guy. I feel like I need another couple of episodes to sort out what's going on there.

I agree with the judges as to Cooan (the japanese guy). Let's see if he can get a little more serious.

I am LOVING Buffi. She's like a mix of Lady Gaga and Adele and I loved her on the "Road to the Runway." I'm also liking Ven, Christopher, Melissa, and Kooan. I'm SO SICK of Gunner. I spent most of the night wanting to punch him.

I have yet to like a single one of the Christian Siriano wannabes that have been featured in every season since his. Christian was the only one who actually had the talent to back up his personality and ego. The others, including this season's Gunnar, are big on the go and "personality" but have all fallen short on the talent, which just makes them insufferable.

I always find it hard to pick a favorite this early on, but I did like the girl who was in the top three. But once again the disconnect between the judges' comments and the actual winners continues to mystify me. They all seemed to love both her designs and had no real negatives at all, and yet the winner one on the strength of his pre-made design, even though the dress that was actually part of the challenge had a lot of fit and construction issues and they all wished it hadn't been done in black. I guess it just shows just how much power the producers actually have over the limited amount the judges have.

I adore Buffi. She reminds me of Hugh Grant's sister in NOTTING HILL.

Buffi looks like Sporty Spice and sounds like Scary Spice. I love her.

But you're right -- Gunner is obnoxious. And I am seriously the only one weirded out by the unibang?

Anybody else been keeping up?

Last week was really interesting, but so much drama, again. I think the most interesting part though was reading the blogs on Lifetime's website afterwards, specifically Laura Bennett's, which shed some light on just how much can be left on the editing room floor.

And her blog for last week's episode was really on point, since she was actually there first hand this time around.

Last week was the first time I felt sorry for Mila. Ever.

I had a hard time deciding which was my favorite last week, because I pretty much hated them all. I think the closest that worked for me was the gold dress that was made for Valerie, but I hated the styling, and it just wound up safe. The cocktail dress for Kenley was totally her, but absolutely wrong for the Emmy awards red carpet.

I'm just not feeling any of the talent yet this season. Hopefully somebody starts wowing me soon.

See, I totally disagree that Kenley's dress was wrong for the Emmy red carpet.

1) It's the Emmys, not the Oscars

2) It's Kenley, not Nicole Kidman and it is EXACTLY what she would choose for herself for any red carpet ever

3) It's a dress that will get noticed because it's stunning and it's different than the parade of long gowns

I was so glad that dress won because it was the perfect blend of challenge/client. I don't know why Gunnar's white sausage dress was in the top three.

Gunnar has to go home tonight. He HAS TO GO HOME. I can't take another week of that nasally 4 year old girl voice.

"2) It's Kenley, not Nicole Kidman and it is EXACTLY what she would choose for herself for any red carpet ever"

To be fair, according to Laura's blog post, that is exactly what Kenley did.

"But craziest of all, Kenley took complete credit for the dress that Ven and Fabio designed and made. She demanded the silhouette. She showed them the length. She instructed them to buy Navy blue silk gazar. I havenít see a lot of Venís work, but Iíve seen quite a bit of Kenleyís and I am pretty sure he doesnít need her help. Iím just going to say that the editing was kind to her. And that if she had been on my season there would have been a murder in the workroom."

I won't say that it shouldn't have won, it was indeed the best representation of their client, and the construction and styling were great (it was nice to see them take that primary red off of her lips that she seems to love to use to highlight how big and loud her mouth is), I just didn't feel it was a red carpet dress.

Sadly I don't have cable so I have to wait until tomorrow, but I'm with you Jordan, please, please, PLEASE God let Gunnar go home tonight. I'd be willing to go find a Chik-Fil-A and buy two sandwiches if you can make this happen; please, God?

Tonight's episode: "In the wake of one contender's startling departure, the designers must...." blah, blah, blah. I guess we'll be starting with some intrigue.

Oh, these shows are soooo scripted now, but, hey, I like it anyway. Looking forward to VEN tonight. That candy dress from last week was freaking stunning! He's the most talented so far imho.

1. I also don't love anyone's designs this season yet.
2. I thought Kenley's dress would have looked at home on the set of Far From Heaven.
3. They might purposely keep Gunnar on because he's so obnoxious. Otherwise, where is any drama this season?

Drama-rama with the unexpected departures! Anyway, great work on this episode. Loved the three who were clearly the judge's favorites: Dmitry, Chirstopher and Sonjia.

I wasn't as much of a fan of Christopher's dress (nice dress, but not for the challenge), but Sonja was totally on my radar from the first episode, and Dimitry's work was stunning.

I think I personally would have picked Dimitry's over Sonjia's if we were actually talking about a real woman, and not the Marie Claire editorial version of a real woman, but Sonjia's was very good and I think she's going to be one of the finalists if she keeps up this pace.

And sadly, Jane, I think you are right about Gunnar getting to stay because he makes for good television (i.e. DRAMA), though Christopher is starting to inch into that zone as well with all of his crying and subtle "the world does revolve around me" attitude that is showing up more and more as we go along. I've come to realize that I ultimately end up disliking anyone who uses the over-emotional "I just want this SOOOO bad" tactic on the runway in front of the judges, as if nobody else feels that way (and yes, even though it was shown that two people did feel that way, I still hate the use of that tactic).

I will say that one of the blogs (I think it was Nick's?) revealed something that I hadn't realized, that being that the "aufed" designers are kept sequestered and are still carted around with those still competing in case they are spotted in public and thus nothing is revealed about who is still in and who is out. That makes Andrea fleeing in the middle of the night all that much more intriguing, as I'm sure, if they wanted, Lifetime could have gone after her for a breach of contract (because I'm sure the sequestering and all that is part of the contract that they sign). I mean, I always figured that the most recent designer eliminated was kept nearby for a few days, just for these types of "we need to bring somebody back" situations, but I guess I never thought about the producers keeping them the entire time and making them still be seen in public with the others.
