The Fashion Show: Chickbomb
This week on The Fashion Show, we meet the designers and I think they’re chosen a pretty good crop. I am shocked to report there was more than one person I actually liked, and then there was Calvin Tran, who practically appeared on my television wrapped in a big red bow to massacre the English language.
Our designers were split into two teams – I’m sorry two “houses of fashion”, and set to work designing a signature piece for our hostess with the fashion emuuuuuuurgency, Iman. The results are mixed in the best way possible – there are some truly beautiful pieces and some real crap. Or, as one designer put it, “I would have to drop my garment a pool of blood for them to win.”
There’s also one of the greatest bitchfights I have ever seen on reality television, starring CalTran (natch). And when is said and done, we’re down one bitchy diva but it looks like there are plenty more to fill the fashionable void.
Biggest Loser: Bluzgirl
Lots to talk about with last night’s Biggest Loser: a shocking double elimination; Brendan ups his douche status; Lisa and Wheezy get yelled at by Bob/Jillian and Frado gets yelled at by Aaron. Oh…and Jesse gets his little feelings hurt–big time.
The show started with Bob skulking around someone’s back yard. He tells us this is the first time there will be a “Live Reveal” of the eliminated contestants. He seems really excited about this—or just the fact that he was able to get off the ranch for a field trip. Do they keep him locked up there in the off season? He needs to get out more, for sure, as the live reveal he was bursting about in the first 5 minutes of the show was so lame and anti-climatic.
The twist this week (I KNOW! Another crazy twist!) is that one person will win a temptation challenge and put all the players in teams of two. Each duo will compete as a team and the 2 teams that fall below the yellow line will be up for elimination. Since Brendan is in it to win it (and piss everyone else off in the process), he wins the competition handily, eating meatballs and steak and dessert and part of Aaron’s thigh. He chooses the teams and puts the girls together and all the guys together. Naturally, both trainers are worried about a team of girls going home, but in the end it is our lovable Aaron and Jesse who hit the bricks. The two biggest threats in the house–pushed out by a group of game players. The live reveal showed Bob at Aaron’s house, with Jesse as a guest and both are doing really well in their at home weight loss. Gee, shocking and riveting. And completely unnecessary. The show was great–big finale of live reveal was meh.
Millionaire Matchmaker: SexyPanda
So, last night on Millionaire Matchmaker, we met a teensy bald man with a Napoleon complex who likes to bang Asian chicks and leave them. Patti even brings in a relationship expert to suss out this guy’s damage, to no avail. So he goes on a pretty shallow date. At the end, he finally reveals to her–and us–exactly what’s wrong with him. If he works with that and deals with it, there’s hope for him yet.
The other millionaire was an -ess: a female professional poker player who makes tons of cash and donates a lot of it to charity. She tends to end up in these “mommy” relationships with younger men who rely on her to plan and pay for the dates. Patti wants her to end up with a REAL man. So she sets her up with a few, and Ms. Poker blows it by bringing along her hair stylist or makeup artist or whoever on the date. It’s not as scandalous as it could have been, but the date is pissed and it ultimately goes nowhere.
As usual, I have more to say about it, so come on back later this week!
