Look who has all the roses
It’s the beginning of the end.
Alas! At last! Atlas? Last week we had an Advant Garde disappointment when every designer put out a rather lackluster attempt. Maybe they are all tired or maybe the talent level was never quite there to begin with, but either way we are all left missing some of yesteryear’s out of the box designers. Dmitry won for a suit of separates, but I can’t enjoy it because I don’t think even he rose to the challenge. Poor Sonjia was sent home.
The jelly sharks are dead. Long live the jelly sharks!
This week was extremely banal but does have the redeeming element of Tim Gunn Home Visits!!! These are wonderful episodes for anyone who fantasizes about meeting Tim Gunn, having Tim Gunn sit and sip tea with you, having Tim Gunn kindly praise your living quarters, surprising Tim Gunn by pushing him into an already frothing hot tub or any other normal, non-stalkerish Tim Gunn daydream. Let’s begin!
I said non stalkerish
We don’t have to go to Atlas this week!!! All the designers packed their bags and evacuated the adult dorms last week so we are finally spared watching Blorpheus tickle fight with Chris or someone doing math in their head about how many x – 1 is.

Because the good Lifetime giveth and the good Lifetime taketh away, the opening scene is instead a useless Heidi runway scene!
I wonder who made the decision to give her this camera ti- oh, nevermind
She announces to them that everyone should be excited and proud, but also scared to death because there will be possible eliminations before Fashion Week. That is pretty much a given when four designers are allowed into the finals though. She lets them know Tim Gunn will be making his rounds and also there will only be five weeks to put together the collections! I feel like in seasons past it was literally months!
Oh I don’t like the looks of this
Oh and I am not spared the obligatory Atlas plug, they all meet in the lobby to do the normal reckoning of who is left and who needs to bring it and blah blah blah. We do get to hear Tara not only count who is left but start adding in the complicated dimension of gender. Someone just got moved into geometry class. Turns out, she’s the only acknowledged female left so that is somehow relevant! Then they all grab their luggage and get into taxis to prove this was pointless.
Benefit of being homeless? Always packing light
