So we are now three episodes into the new season, and all hell is about to break lose it seems. This week was the first partners challenge. Not only were they randomly paired up, but it was the red carpet challenge, and their clients were former contestants! It seemed the show strived hard to pick a mix of the nicest ones, and then nastiest ones they could. Ironically Irena, who seemed the worst to work for and generally seemed to hate her dress, ended up in the end having one of the top 2 dresses. The look on her face when it was picked as one of the highest was priceless. I don’t think she expected it, and really neither did some of the other contestants!
However next week seems to be when it falls apart. At the end of this week Andrea and Christopher were both on the block against some others. Both were safe, but it appeared to be too hard on them. Christopher was devastated, while Andrea took the attitude “well I won’t mind going home to my family and friends.” Then the next morning, all of her stuff was gone. Yup, it seems like Andrea went out the door! Then we got the preview that Kooan is teasing his decision to also leave the show. In this last challenge, even though he won with Gunnar, he felt he was way out of his element as he doesn’t do gowns. Will he leave too? That would probably mean bringing some people back to stretch the season out.
Finally, while he is a great designer, this season is already looking to be the “Ven Season.” How much excitement can there be if he just keeps winning challenge after challenge? I hope the others step it up!
