Also, fuck you, the wooly balls thing was hillarious.

"Note to Project Runway casting team: women (this gal included) enjoy having at least one attractive, possibly heterosexual male to watch and lust over in an hour and a half’s time, especially if nothing more exciting occurs than Tim Gunn announcing “Oh, they’re wooly balls!”"
-Second City Style on last week's Project Runway
I swear that sometimes, the most depressing thing about being a Project Runway fan--and this is impressive, given how increasingly blatant the show has gotten--is the misogyny, and I'm not just talking about every other word out of Michael Kor's mouth. And this one is somehow impressively depressing, since it goes out of its way; most misogynists are perfectly content to leave it at the idea that women love the show since it's about clothes, and clothes are all girly and stuff. (I've also seen a lot of people arguing that Jason should have been left in, to give the straight women that something to lust over, but on that one I just have to say that if Jason is what you consider a good lust object, I feel for you on many levels.)

Jason was deeply disturbing, giving off a stalkerish/psycho-slasher vibe, the kind of guy where if he shook your hand, you'd want to immediately go wash it off.

While the wooly balls scene was to die for, though nothing will match the hilarity of Santino doing his Tim Gunn impersonation.

I'm used to TV critics not getting why I watch shows. I'm a PR fan precisely because I couldn't imagine wearing 99.9% of the outfits they come up with-- it's an entire alien culture, so I spend the show trying to guess what the judges will like versus what I think is cool. And as far as eye candy--since the odds that I'll sleep with any of the designers is pretty much nil, their sexual orientation doesn't really come into play.

And his speech about how he's a straight man in a gay man's world and that's so hard ought to be entered into some sort of Hall of Entitlement. Yes, the fact that there is this one teeny tiny area of your life where you are not the privileged one is so hard. We weep for you. (It's a shame he didn't say it on the Runway. Michael Kors would have smacked him down so hard I might have liked him for a moment.)

Ugh, Jason was one creepy fucker. And never trust anyone who feels compelled to constantly remind you he's straight.

I don't watch for lust objects, I watch to see Tim Gunn being FUCKING AWESOME. Oh, and for me and my friends to enjoy a weekly snarkfest.

And Italian! Don't forget that! His introduction to Gretchen was just bizarre, and you could see her going "What nationality am I? What the actual fuck? Who asks that?"

I have a huge intellectual crush on Tim Gunn. He and Nina are what make PR rise above the dreck of most reality shows.

I think I've never been able to get into Top Chef for partially that reason; Tom Whatshisface is a judge, and even if he were anywhere near as awesome as Tim (and he's far from it), you just can't have a mentoring relationship with someone who's gonna shred you later on. Although there are a lot of other problems with that show, too.

I have a terrible time with Top Chef, because I can't taste the food! It mainly ends up with me hungry and disappointed that I can't have an opinion.
