I am finally caught up on Project Runway Allstars: The Race for Aryan Supremacy. And boy do I have a lot to say about it. Last time Elie Tahari proved that he is adorable, even if the Garment District is not. Uli and Aryan were in the top two and once again, Uli should have won and yet Aryan was the victor. And for something that was pretty blah. I think even DeadMauth was robbed. The upside was that Ivy was finally, finally, finally! sent home, with Joshua escaping by the fuchsia skin of his teeth.
On to the new!
I will say here that I greatly enjoy the intro to this show. Only because they doggedly retain the intros of the people who have long since gone. It is a sort of marking of the passage of time and I am always astonished at both how long this season has been running and how quickly and completely the eliminated players are forgotten.
This time it really is Fleet Week and the designers meet NotHeidi on the deck of the Intrepid, which is a boat that did great things and defended our freedom and such.
Oh and I think people hate it when you call a ship a boat. Or is it the other way around? Anyway, it’s a boat and it’s really big and kills stuff like other boats. Just like fashion!
Four female veterans are brought to the deck representing the four branches of the armed forces which means a “real women” challenge!!! Huzzah! There aren’t any fatties though but they are all dressed in tee shirts and look less than feminine, so maybe that will be the tough part. And one of them has a dog. Uh oh. This one’s going to be a tear-jerker. Sure enough, it’s a service dog and she has a prosthetic leg.
First up is Captain Leslie Smith of the US Army. She sits down with Joshua to describe her backstory and I’m ready for the worst. Turns out she was stationed in Bosnia and developed a blood clot and subsequent infection in her leg. She went through a lot of trauma and sounds like she cheated death but also… a blood clot!?! Lady Gaga had a blood clot for wearing leather chaps on a transatlantic flight! Call off the waterworks, folks, this is not the hero’s story I was bracing for. She’s really pretty and spunky though and I’m so glad she made it through her ordeal. Cap’n Smith admits her first fear was if she would ever be able to wear high heels again – an officer after my own heart! She should just call Real Housewife Aviva Drescher to get the number of a good high-heel prosthetic maker, but she better thank Reid for allowing Aviva to use a telephone.
