Huh?? I was never one of those who hated Jeffrey, but really, that fight with Angela's mom was just disturbing and I don't see how that fight would actually make you like Jeffrey. For God's sake, he made somebody's Mom cry. In my book, that's simply not cool. From what I saw on the show, he got pissed because the Mom responded to Tim's question about how she liked the dress. Its not like she searched for Tim, and without prompt, started to badmouth the dress.
And, going back to the couture dress challenge, I don't see why they can't mix it up sometimes and give designers more time and money to design a dress. Maybe for the first season, I could understand a limited budget and timeline because the show was new and didn't have a major budget behind it. I think that with more time, we'd see different designers shine and rise to the challenge. Some designers, like last season's Daniel V., thrived under those constricitons but didn't deliver when they had the resources and time to prepare for FashionWeek.
Actually, I think I do realize the reason behind those tight budgets and timelines- to put as much pressure on these designers so that we get as much drama and ugly fighting as possible. For me, when they brought back Vincent and Angela in the last challenge, encapsulated everything that was wrong with this season. Those two had no chance of winning that challenge, so there was no real drama in that. Instead, they were brought back to cause tension and fighting. Last season, there was so much fun and singing and joking while they were making their dresses. This season, its been all about nastiness and fighting; its just not aesthetically pleasing. That's why I'll watch the remainder of this season, and won't watch anymore seasons.
And, I got to add how disappointed I'm with this batch of designers especially with all the publicity this season has gotten and how much bigger this season's guest judges have been. Last season's final five or six seemed much stronger than this season's. Michael is the frontrunner, but he just hasn't really impressed me too much.
