Project Runway Australia – The Second Hand Challenge

Craig moaned to camera that he thought Tim’s dress from last week was worse than Amanda’s but she was the one to go. Hellooo this is reality TV, Amanda is not going to give as much entertainment to the viewer as Tim is.

Tip if you are on a show like this make sure you show personality or are controversial it can keep in you a bit longer even if you are not talented.

The challenge for episode three was to create a chic modern day look for the glamorous girl around town, and they were not off to Rathdowne Fabrics, they had to pick the fabric from second hand clothes and they only had 3 minutes to grab it. They also only had 8 hours to make it, and the twist they had to hand their bags to the person on the left.

Craig was not happy that he got Tim’s and he had a lot of khaki. Though Johnny was pretty underwhelmed by Craig’s bag as well.

Tim was creating tension in the work room, by taking an extra table, but he seemed oblivious to it all. All the other contestants were taking the piss out of him when he was having trouble making button holes, and was being a bit of a diva.

Alex Perry and did some mentoring and showed his design philosophy and why he was so successful when he told Matcho “I don’t know any girl that puts a suit on and wants to look fat”.

So Matcho changed tack and made a dress that would make a girl look like a prostitute. I don’t see a long career in fashion for this guy.

Clare had done a nice skirt and top with suede  bits on it, but what is with her eyeliner?

The guest judge this week was Terry Bivano a nice bit of cross publicity, as she is in the WAG’s show currently being made by Foxtel.

Megan Gale dropped a bombshell and said it was a double elimination, so they will down to eight. If the point of the elimination was to create viewer tension it didn’t as we did not know about it until later in the episode.

The parade started and mini skrits were the order of the day. The designers must have been psychic and realised Terry Bivano who only wears short skirts was going to be guest judge.

Johnny’s dress was fantastic, and I really liked Craig’s as well.

Kirrily praised Rachael’s design without the jacket as did Jarrod Clark and he even liked the jacket.

Matcho’s was criticised for being over the top. Anna’s design was described as grunge. Tim was told they would have liked to see more innovation, and once he added the accessories his model looked like an air hostess.

Clare won. Anna and Tim were eliminated. I noted no one rushed to hug him, except for Rachael but she was just in his proximity so had to. He also gave them a speech about how they needed this more than him. The look on everyones face was priceless. I really wish he was staying in the competition, not for his design flair as he had none, but for all the friction he created.

Love this show.

Could not believe Tim’s words tonight “You all deserve to be here and need it more than me” What a complete wanker.
Would have loved for him to stay in even Circa SATC series 1 (Megan get your own lines) for reality fun and games.

And Matcho. The guy is reality tv gold. Give him his own show

I’m so surprised no-one shoved Tim out the window at the end of the show – condescending much?

I’m really enjoying this season – some good contestants and Megan Gale is doing a good job. Alex Perry just makes me laugh with his pouty lips and bedroom eyes…maybe he thinks he’s auditioning for a porn movie?

Matcho is absolutely awesome. I’m so glad he stayed in. I love his creativity but this show is more about outfits that are ready to wear than over the top couture. Tim was arrogant and obnoxious and I’m very glad he’s left. I like Johnny, Craig and the other guy with the beautiful face and eyeliner (I forget his name!)

Yeah, eyeliner dude – Dylan – is my favourite, he’s so tart and witty and yet nice. I also really like his designs. Poor Timothy, he looked so tired and so sad in the eyes when he could see the chopper coming, and then he tried to save face with that terrible bitch remark!

I’m so glad Tim is gone….He wouldn’t even let Megan finish her little speech to him before blurting out “I’m going back to New York”….tool!

The only thing I don’t like about this show so far is the terrible camera work at runway….so many zoom in and out shots, quick cuts and sometimes really not showing much of the outfit at all! It’s really bugging me….

Tim’s a bit of a sad type. A very desperate personality. Don’t think I could have stood him for much longer …

Thanks for keeping the comments going on this thread guys, but I promise there will be a timely recap on ep 5 tonight. Watching the episode now…

I have to say I am really enjoying this show- although I find Megan Gale pretty wooden at the best of times. I like Alex and its good when he gets more involved with the outfits but can’t stop watching the pout and sprayed on shirts!
