Project Runway 6 has its final three, and just two episodes to go

“I’m a bit shocked to see this from you today,” Heidi Klum said to one of the designers while critiquing her dress. That’s exactly what I thought about this episode of Project Runway 6. I tuned in to half-watch as usual, and suddenly there were just five designers left, participating in their final runway challenge. Two went home, leaving the final three who will present at fashion week. Last February.

Anyway, this means that this misfire of a season will be over soon: two more episodes for a Nov. 19 finale.

The three designers who presented collections, and will be seen creating them in next week’s episode, are Althea Harper, Carol Hannah Whitfield, and Irina Shabayeva. Gordana Gehlhausen and Christopher Straub were eliminated; the judges thought he was too inexperienced, and they couldn’t figure out what her perspective was.

Christopher’s exit meant that all male designers had been eliminated, which makes Irina, Carol Hannah, and Althea the show’s first-ever all-female finalists, although not the first-ever female final three: Last season, Jerell was a finalist, but he was eliminated in a finale challenge before presenting at Fashion Week.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
