The only joy in what happens next is hopefully it makes Chris “Rilly Upset you guhzah!”. With very mixed emotions Heidi tells Unibrow he is out and he returns to the workroom to let his family down too. He keeps a brave face but in his interview he breaks down and reveals that the prize would’ve meant being able to pay his bills and also help his mom financially. He says gracious things about only being sad because his mother is so sad and my heart breaks into a hundred dumpster shaped pieces for him. He really had a great personality and I’m very impressed that he didn’t lay the sob story on the judges previously about what the prize meant to him and his family financially.
You can go through my recycling bin anytime
I’m now wondering if Dmitry’s group of friends are sitting in that workroom uncomfortably realizing their friend won but surrounded by weeping losers and their families. Awkward. Also awkward when Chris flounces himself on to the couch and demands “a recount”. I completely agree, they should recount back far enough to let Sonjia in the finale instead of Chris. With Tara and Unibrow being so gracious, it’s hard to imagine why Chris wants this to be our final impression of him, but I guess it’s never too late to start campaigning for All Stars!
Here is your recount. You still came in fourth. Out of four
Now for the winner. The love I have for dear Dmitry made this a very satisfying ending. I didn’t truly expect the judges to go that way and Dmitry took the news quietly but with heartfelt gratitude.
Sometimes the world is a very good place
Heidi kisses Dmitry and he thanks everyone and all the judges congratulate him. Kors calls him a real gentleman. It’s an odd thing to say at this time, but it is absolutely true so I love it. Heidi brings Dmitry’s friends out to the runway and his model, who is also a winner (especially if he’s been schtupping her all this time), but the best part of the whole finale was when Tim Gunn came out to congratulate Dmitry. I don’t know how many times he has reacted this strongly but it was deeply touching.
What I’d like to see after every success in life
The season thus ends very satisfactorily, with Dmitry as the crown prince he deserves to be. I also wish a lot of success to Fabio, Melissa and Sonjia. I wish a little bit of maturing and then moderate success to Christopher . Thanks to everyone who’s been reading and thanks for all your comments and hilarious insights and opinions! I’m going to miss you! If you miss me, you can find me knee-deep in recapping Homeland, which is an amazing show you really should be downloading illegally already.
