Project Runway Premieres — But No One’s On the Show Yet?
The Season 8 premiere of Project Runway made me laugh — and I’m not sure I was supposed to. The “twist” was that the cast was not picked yet, and the first episode was an audition process to see who makes it on the show. Confused? That’s because it makes no sense. Everyone on the first episode is technically on the show already, considering it’s on the air. So when the contestants whined about how they had to excel in the challenge to “make it on the show,” I thought to myself — you’re actually buying this crap? I suppose it’s a masterful mind-fuck. Aside from that, I’d like to note that Selma Blair made for a great guest judge, and Tim Gunn’s commentary did not disappoint.
