Like Heidi, only worse
It’s good to be back and it’s SO good to have power! Sorry for the gap in recaps, but we will dive right back in and by the 657th episode you’ll hardly notice the difference! Hope you are enjoying the PR All-Stars Vlogs, as much as I love writing for this show, I missed Flipit’s take terribly so I am in heaven!
On to the show:
In the season premiere we met this year’s cast of punishment gluttons. Some I knew, some I didn’t, but they all seem obnoxious enough to make an impression, so recapper dynamite!
“Who loves you, baby?”
The first challenge centered around words and teams and collections and the results were convoluted and underwhelming. The fruit-named, soccer mom tennis designer got the boot while Andre stayed by the hairs of his chinny chin chin. The winner was Anthony Ryan, the punk so nice his parents named him twice.
The mohawk distracts from the telltale Ryan Widow’s Peak
On with the latest!
Carolyn Murphy starts us off wearing Children of the Corn Couture, and I just can’t put my finger on what about her looks so odd. It’s like her eyes are tired or her mouth is too small or she’s too stiff? She doesn’t look like she’s been going to “the dentist” too much, but maybe she’s discovered a new trend in plastic surgery that actually is supposed to make you look older? Either way, it seems she is required to work a little harder for her paycheck than our dear Heidi. She actually meets the designers on location to tell them what the challenege will be. Gotta love a shortened show format!
“The metal rods keep my head up”
The challenge is club wear said to be inspired by the 70’s; which excites 70 year old Wendy Pepper. The truth is that this challenge will be our first episode-long commercial for sponsor 9 West and the inspiration is shoes. This excites everyone else.
“Shoes. Shoes. Oh my god. Shoes.”
Anthony Ryan goes first and then each designer selects a brightly colored corky wedge (Oh blah di) to pair with their disco party designs. Wendy Pepper is relieved to not be the last one picked this time and instead it’s the Episode One Bottom Two loser, Andre, who is being culled out of the herd by his peers.
The omega has been established
They all sketch and Uli reveals that being behind the Iron Curtain while John Travolta was still considered hip and thought to be straight may put her at a disadvantage.
Mood is the normal madhouse and Wendy is concocting something godawful including chains and a “punchy print”.
“Chains and feathers are what all the hippity hop kids are wearing, right?”
