Tonight on Project Runway….
Tim Gunn and Johnny Lavoy, the show’s consulting hair stylist, meet with the contestants to explain their challenge. This week, each designer will be working with a pair of friends; one of whom is setting the other up with a makeover. So, instead of stick thin models, they’ll be creating looks for real women.
For the first time, Ven Budhu isn’t feeling so confident, but we have a sneaky suspicion that he’s going to blame his model’s “wide hips” if he doesn’t do well. The fact that he keeps complaining about her body shape kinda made that clear, too.
Gunnar Deatherage is rising to the occasion. Instead of spending his time rolling his eyes at Christopher Palu, he’s really focusing on doing something spectacular for his client, who’s been emotional about the entire experience.
Sonjia Williams is used to making things for her mother and sister, so she’s expecting to do fairly well with this challenge, but Tim seems concerned with where things are so far.
Fabio Costa, still riding high after last week’s judging, is hoping to finally walk away with a win.
After the models get their hair done, Ven starts to anger all of the other designers as they hear him criticizing his client’s fuller figure to the point that she starts crying.
So not cool…or professional.
Heidi Klum introduces the judges and kicks off the runway show, which is stolen my Gunnar’s model and her sassy walk.
Dmitry Sholokhov is happy to hear that he has one of the higher scores, along with Fabio and Gunnar. Ven, of course, blames his model’s body for his failure. Wait, didn’t we predict that?
As hard as it is to hear her friend getting emotional about why Terri deserved a better makeover, we’re glad she told the judges about how disappointed they were with Ven; even happier that Heidi told Ven that he did a bad job.
After deliberating, the judges declare Fabio as the winner of the challenge. And the one who’s out this week? Nathan Paul.
