Project Runway Recap: Everyday People

August 23, 2012 09:05 PM by Shayla Perry

This week on Lifetime‘s Project Runway, the designers are tasked with creating looks for “real women.” But what is it that has everyone losing respect for Ven Budhu as a designer and a person?

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.

What did you think of tonight’s episode? Do you agree with who the judges chose to send home? Sound off in the Comments section below.

    Do you think he’d turn down a chance to design for a plus sized star like Oprah or any number of other clients? If he can’t handle Real women, he should just stick to draping mannequins. What a loser.

    ven was a favorite of mind before tonights show now i look forward to seeing him go. so he can be a large man and its okay but its a crime for a woman to not be thin. he will not be a good designer if he doesn’t care about his clients

    Well, here i am again ranting about Divas.. my goodness.. when Ven designs in the real world will he turn away a customer because of size.

    He was rude and ever so cocky at that last remark “i shouldn’t have been the last others were worse”.. well, his attitude will take him down.. enough already. of hurting other people.. and yes I was surprised at Gunnar not saying one bad thing about Christopher .. for a change.. now I have no idea who to put my vote on… it was Ven all the way before tonight.. and his meaness.!

    Ven isn’t excatly thin himself and yet he has the right to criticize an everyday person for being fat? Has he even looked in the mirror? His comments towards his model were rude, classless and unprofessional. If this guy can’t handle designing for a woman because of her frame then he has no business being a designer. If I were his model I would have walked right out that door when he started his comments and never looked back. I think I speak for a lot of people when I say Ven should have gone home this week. What a dirtbag!

    This week the judges got it right. Looks like the real Ven is a misanthropic jerk. Simple human decency dictates that you don’t criticize someone to their face. He needs to grow up or go home.
