First, cut all the straight guys...

So Project Runway's back. And I am super happy. They always have a lot of genuine characters, plus the cast members actually have talent (gasp!), and and there to further an actual career, rather than to turn their 15 minutes of fame into a lifetime of milking it for all its worth. Anyhow, the first two episodes have not disappointed. The crazy clothes are on the runway, and the bitchiness has started. Last night was a surprise to me--Malan had the worst dress, but I really don't like that Angela. She brings nothing to the table, and I really don't think she should agitate poor Vincent like that (more on him below). She has now replaced Jeffrey (more on him below) as my least favorite.

On to the straight guys. Now, I don't really have any problem with straight guys, just trying to be clever. But I want the two straight guys to go, albeit for different reasons. And I think they're going to both be kept around way past their prime, for the sake of good tv.

I don't like this guy. From his tattoo turtleneck, to his faux hawk to his disdainful attitude, he smacks of a 17 year old trying to be edgy and rebellious. Jeffrey, my dear, faux hawks are not punk rock! His 'attitude' seems like it might be good for conflict, so they'll probably keep him around, despite his lame 'edgy' aesthetic, i.e. make it shreddy and uneven. Oh well, if he shows a sense of humor,maybe I'd like him better, but right now it's hate at first sight.

Now, Vincent Libretti on the other hand, is a man on the verge. Seriously, he worries me. I don't want to see him have a nervous breakdown on tv. It's not funny, it's exploitative. He should've been gone with the basket hat. He seriously thought it looked good. My daughter has a similar style. She likes to put things on her head as a hat. I think he'll stay long past his expiration date also. Go home Vincent. Go enjoy sunny Santa Monica.

I guess I'll have to just wait and see. Wednesday nights rock!
