Project Runway Australia – Episode 5 – The Men’s Marathon
Apparently the housemates particularly the boys are underwhelmed by Kelly-Anne and thought she should have been eliminated last week. Michael aka Tresemme continued with his bitchy queen persona and said “She has dodged so many bullets …she’s a big target”. Ouch.
Tonight’s challenge was to convince a complete stranger to become their client, then create a modern cutting-edge outfit with a minimum of three pieces for a complete stranger. The clanger was the client had to be male, they had to find him, and he would have to model it on the runway.
They have two days for the challenge.
Yopie and Anthony were the first to find some male models and get to Rathdowne Fabrics, whilst Kelly-Anne wandered aimlessly around.
“Normally it takes a few drinks to get rejected this many times.” said Kelly-Anne. And I am not surprised if her pick up lines are as crap as the lines she was using tonight to try and cajole a guy to model for her. “Do you want a make-over?” she was screeching which implies they currently look crap. She needed to sell it a bit better like “Do you want a new funky wardrobe?”
At 5.20pm Kelly-Anne still was not back at the Whitehouse. By the time she got there she was completely psyched out, and had “no fucking idea” what she was going to do. But the next day she pulled it together a bit better. However the jacket she made her client looked like something an eskimo would wear.
Michael’s outfit morphed from Peter Allen Cococobana, to gay rodeo.
Anthony who was having difficulty in selling the MC Hammer pants to his client, should have told him it makes it penis look bigger (which by the way it did), then he may have agreed too wear them.
Mark’s was like Star Trek top covered by a black shiny billowing jacket, which Sarah Gale described as something you would wear at the hairdressers.
Yopie was struggling, by the end of the second day and had yet to make a third piece. Kelly-Ann wrote a list of all the things she had to do to finish, and William gave her a hand as well by sewing a few things for her.
In was Runway time:
Lauren’s trench was praised, but the shorts and t-shirt were given the thumbs down.
They all liked William’s “modern and sophisticated” outfit.
Yopie’s coat was badly made but Jayson Brundson thought it was quite modern.
Anthony’s “not a commerical pants” copped a bollocking from Sarah Gale.
Alex Zabotto-Bentley, who was the guest judge tonight, told Kelly-Ann the jacket was too feminine.
The judges liked the Jim Morrison look of Michael’s, who had designed for a boy that was in a indie band.
It was obvious William was going to win tonight as his outfit was by far and away the best.
Kelly-Anne has been bottom feeding for awhile, so it was no surprise she was eliminated. Mark would have gotten a scare by being in the bottom two where he was told his outfit was “safe and boring”.
Next week is the wildcard round with the chance for two designers to reenter the competition. Fun, fun, fun.
