    I'm disappointed he won, his clothes weren't impressive to me and he wasn't consistent the entire season. All four had great collections, but him spending too much money isn't fair, yeah he took away some of pieces but he still broke a rule.

    I disagree with most of you... Jeffrey has been my favorite since Day 1, and even though his attitude bugged me some of the time, this is not what the show is about.  If I would vote a winner for who was the coolest and nicest of the bunch, than obviously that vote would go to Micheal... but, his show was incredibly flawed and while some of his clothes were really fantastic during the show, he still has alot to learn before he ever would be able to win this show.  Fashion Week Show Wise: I liked Uli's the best, but Jeffrey's style and originality was unmatchable... so, did Jeffrey deserve to win? YEAH, he may not be the nicest guy in the world... but, he can sure make a mean piece of clothing...   The judges chose ecactly how I would've... Micheal's show was obviously the worst, Laura had some great pieces but the whole show felt the "same" so I would put her in third... Uli was marvelous during her show, but during the third season's run time she was less than stellar... so I would leave her in second... Jeffrey not only was rock solid during the show he was during Fashion Week, too... and that's why I believe the judges were 100% right in choosing him as the winner!

    i will agree that it was a shock to see jeffrey win, but to honestly judge the fashion week pieces, he was the one whose line meshed the best together. i believe that everyone had some great pieces (there were a lot of lauras i would LOVE to have), but jeffrey's was the one that stood out the most. my mom and dad happened to watch the season finale with me, and even they said that even though they werent the biggest fan of jeffrey's style...he had the best line, b/c it wasnt all the same, but still went well together.
    i would have loved to see kayne go to the finals just to see what he would have done. the only problem i had with the whole show was that they kept telling kayne he did the same thing over and over again, so thats why he got kicked off. but the thing that made me mad was they said the same thing to jeffrey and uli too. so i dont know how they picked one over the others.     i just hope next seasons finale is better then this one, b/c it seemed more about drama then it did about whose outfits were nicer.

    Jeffrey, in my opinion, no matter his rudeness or how he corrected going over budget, shouldn't have won! Before the finale aired I'd already seen the collections on Reality Blurred and Getty Images. Throughout the season, I loved Michael and his work, but his collection was disappointing. I was surprised by Uli, most of her clothes were absolutely gorgeous!! Laura's was impeccable as usual, but Jeffery's was just....what's a good word...AH!...His clothes were not flattering. Out of all of them only the green striped jacket and the matching purse were something worth wild. It was a travesty! This is definitely my last season of watching Project Runway.

    I did not like Jeffrey at all. I was not a fan of his collection either. Although michael was my favorite all season long, last night i was really pulling for Uli to win. I loved her collection the most and totally thought she was the most worthy of the win. I liked Laura's collection for the most part. Michael's collection was a little disappointing because i know he's a lot better than that. I hated Jeffrey the entire season, I didn't really care for anything he made the entire season. I am not happy at all that he won. IMO, this was the most disappointing season. Everyone kept raving that this was the most talented group ever, but I disagree. I thought last season was the best season.

    i knew jeffrey was going to win if michael didn't. project runway loves their "fresh" designers. but i didn't like his collection that much.

    i think uli should have won. but i guess they thought she was too safe.

    What do you mean "rigged" there is nothing in it for Bravo if they chose Jeffery over anyone else.  they still have to pay the winner the same amount. 

    While I don't think I would wear anything that Jeffrey made I still liked his clothes.

    I thought Jeffrey and Uli definitely had the best collections.  Then out of those two, Jeffrey had the more innovative designs.  The cuts of his clothes were fabulous (particularly the dress his model wore at judging).  I thought that green and white fabric was a hot mess and some of the shoes didn't match his outfits, but the shapes of his clothes were definitely outstanding.

    I have had a problem with Jeffrey all season. His behavior and his appearance are far from professional . I am most surprised that four fashion experts could select someone who did not display any kind of new fashion sense, personally or in his designs.
    His collection seemed right our ot the 50s. Handkerchief hems, baby doll dress, navy blue granny dress cut short and an evening look, that was an attempt to copy Uli, that did not fit the model and was poorly executed.
    During the season Jeffrey had several just total bombs such as the Mom outfit , the red, white and blue dress and the cocktail outfit
    that the judges stated looked cheap. When he survived those disasters I knew that he was their fair haired boy.
    Neither Uli or Laura had anything that distasteful during the whole season.
    I might remind everyone that Nolan Miller and Bob Mackie both made fabulous careers designing evening wear and no one thought that they were boring.

    Interesting isn't it that Michael, Nina and Heidi all had problems with a number of the designers boring outfits week after week? Kayne's were too tacky and over the top", Laura's too "classic", Robert's too "boring", Uli's too "warm weather/Miami inspired", etc. During all this they said they needed to broaden their appeal. They also had problems with Jeffrey's "Gwen Stefani" rocker look (loved that line). I find it odd that they seemed to hold it against the others, but when it came to Jeffrey, they just let it slide....even during the runway show.

    They didn't let it slide. He was in the bottom 2 a couple of times, he was never the worst in any challenge. SO I don't think they let it slide. Jeffrey was really hit or miss during the season. They reminded him any time. Kayne went home when he did because he ahd the worst dress, same with Robert. Robert went home because he always went the safe route. Uli could have gone home but her dresses were never in the bottom even if she was limited to a certain style. I enjoyed this season and if there is a season 4 I'll be tuning in again.

    I loved Jeffrey on and off. I loved Uli the WHOLE TIME.
    And Kayne...
    But Jeff and Uli are so supportive of each other. When Heidi was like this is the top two they just started hugging. Uli calls him a rockstar. Has anytone seen the totally ADORABLE photo of Jeff and Uli and Allison at the PR finale?

    I don't care what you guys say... Jeffery deserved to win and they didn't feel sorry for him. His collection was the best out of all of them, that's why he won. His collection showed the range of what he can do. Unlike Uli who can only make the same dresses with prints. Uli was good but Jeffery deserved to win. Laura and Micheal only do the same design over and over again. It's old.

    I don't think Jeffery deserved to win at all. Uli's clothes were so beautiful and they fit like a glove. I would buy her clothes in a second.

    I feel it was the Uli show. Her collection was the best all togheter and the judges complaints of the color taking out the cohesiveness so minor compared to lack of cohesion in Jeffrey's collection. His seemed to roll along like a square stone wheel. I think he did a better job than Michael and Laura but I don't think his collection should have won. I don't think the judges did any rigging or falling for a sob story... they've always like him. His ugly-beautiful style and daring to make god awful fashions just seem to turn on the fashion world... I think I blame that the most. Only consulation is that Nina Garcia recognized that Uli's collection was hot and mentioned she'd pursue it to sell them. Oh well...

    The judges even said that his last gown was way out there and not even close to meeting the lowest line to show at the final. And come on there where people asking the judges for Uli and Laura and how do they get in touch with them...hello. I still think Jeff cheat and they let him because of his past not his work.
