What I mean by the title is, is this season slowly weeding out the designers who aren't mainstream "pretty"? Cause lets face it, the Real World stopped having "real" looking cast members a long time ago, and now Project Runway is being produced by the same company.
Last nights episode, designing an outfit out of newspaper, really got me thinking about this point. Gordana made a beautiful, wearable, dress completely out of paper (no muslin at all), and she was in the bottom three because her outfit was "boring". Heck, there were a lot of designers in the "safe" category whose outfits I thought were just plain ugly. The judging this season has just been ridiculous most of the time. I don't really remember what gave me the idea, but I really started to look at the designer physical appearance. Gordana, is not a bad looking woman, but she is the oldest female contestant and nowhere near as good looking as say Althea or Irina. Looking back at all of the contestants that have been eliminated, none of them are ugly, but out of this group they're definitely not the top in the looks category. This season the judging has been just so off the wall sometimes, we as viewers can definitely feel the producers presence. Could they be trying to arrange to have the "prettiest" final 3?
