My prediction for the final three includes Marion and Kevin just based on their photos (watch them be the first nixed, ha!). Even though Jack's the cute one, he'll be the PR1 David. None of the women project the PR image. That's my snap judgement anyway.

Tracee said...

YAY! I've been in withdrawl for so long, I'm not sure how i'll react when the season premieres. I even miss Heidi's "Are you in? Or are you Aut?"

kc said...

Well, Marion bothers me with the suspenders comment. I call he and Chris as longshots. ;-)

I'm very curious about Christian as he gives props to Westwood and check out the hair! Can't wait for the season to start....

I don't know one guy who loves this show. Ent, you're not who you say you are.

diage860 said...

What happened sissy no sex in the city updates???

Not a lawyer. A real attorney would never leave himself open for a lawsuit as he has.Just ask Harvey or Perez.

diage860 said...

Yea

Dennis Greene

Leah said...

Ricky and Chris will bitch-slap each other by the second episode.

DNfromMN said...

ronni: I hope you mean "straight guy". 'cuz I'm a guy, and I heart project runway.

diage: what did EL leave open to a lawsuit? With Timmy all the players are dead, no one can sue.

kelsey said...

chris = jay
christian = austin
kevin = jeffrey?
sweet p (wtf?) = wendy pepper
marion = kayne
carmen = rosario dawson?!?!

there is no fking way elisa is 42. well okay maybe but damn!

yay ricky! a local! he's my early favorite.

I can't waiiiiittt!

My predictions:

Based on Hometown, I would say Christian (Annapolis is such a shit hole), Elisa (Hell Paso), Marion (Tyler TX) are all out.

Based on Fashion Must, I would say Jillian (sweater dress - oh yeah), Simone, Steven (red trench coat - flasher??), and Sweet P Kathleen are all out.

Based on spelling of name, Victorya is out.

That leaves Ricky, Rami, Kevin, Kit, Jack, Chris, Carmen. Out of all these Jack has the best chance of making it whether he wins on the show or not. This is based on Fashion Must: Sugar Daddy

Based on Favorite Designer I think Kevin has the best chance.

Based on Education I think Kit has the best chance.

A N Other blog thinks Jack is the hot one, but he's far too preppy looking for me. Kevin, on the other hand, looks pretty good. But that's some comedy beard styling right there bro, so maybe, not so much.

Fashion smashion, I watch it for the tantrums and the hotties!

jlb said...

LOL Ent, Michael K. linked your site for this breakdown....

Calla said...

"I don't know one guy who loves this show. "

Not even gay guys? Oops...I see DNfromMN already addressed this. ;)

I'll come out of the Runway closet. Straight man here who wont miss an episode. Wife gives me a few questioning looks when i critique their work and collections, but I don't care. We are here, we are straight, and we aren't going anywhere

DNfromMN said...

One thing I forgot to mention: Rami looks like Nigel Barker from Top Model (which is too much for this gay man).

Tracee said...

ROFL, ROB!!! Let'em know.
