Project Runway beyond the Thunderdome

Two men enter! One man leaves! Two men enter! One man leaves!

By Renee

Project+Runway+…6+DesignersOnly hours until the premiere of Season six and Lifetime is pulling out all the stops in an effort to ensure past fans of the Bravo series make the transition over for Season six.  Lifetime has produced an ultra-special ALL-STAR CHALLENGE, to air before the season premiere (8:00PM ET/7:00PM CT).

Eight designers from past shows will enter the Thunderdome, but only one will leave! Oh, if only Lifetime was the kind of network where Heidi Klum could ride a zip line onto the runway, mohawk fluttering behind her in the breeze, asking contestants to “Remember where you are. This is Project Runway. Nina Garcia is listening and will take the first designer who screams.” Tim Gunn roaming the floor of the cage-enclosed cutting & draping room screaming, “Dyeing time’s here!”  Santino Rice would obviously be cast as the Mel Gibson’s, Man with No Name, character. While Daniel Vosovic is clearly the fierce competitor (cursed with the mind of a child) Blaster, and beloved by Master, as played by Michael Kors.   Lifetime had a chance to completely re-vamp Project Runway into the bloodthirsty death-match it was always meant to be…but did they seize said opportunity? Nnnnooooo.  Why am I the only one to see the true potential of reality TV?

Since Lifetime (television for women! And their gay best friends!) refuses to go apocalyptic on Runway’s ass, I am forced to look for my blood sports elsewhere. And like manna from heaven, so did Models of the Runway appear.  Slotted immediately after Project Runway (11:00PM Et/10:00PM CT), this spin-off promises to

“…give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the reality competition – from the models’ perspective.  Viewers can experience the drama, anxiety, joys, tears and frustrations as the models themselves face elimination each week and compete for a cash prize and photo spread in Marie Claire magazine.”

I, for one, CAN NOT WAIT to experience my own anxiety, joys, tears and frustrations as the models share their perspective on the competition with the American public. I’m sure it will be insightful and succinct, because models are nothing if not beautiful shells in which hide depths of wisdom.  And it’s okay for me to make fun of Models of the Runway because I will be glued to my TV at 10 PM every Thursday watching it, and I only hurt because I care.

And I will have a lot of hurting to dish out this season, with ProRun’s cast of sixteen new emotional designers, and my weekly Friday re-cap (or as I like to think of it, my  FROTHY FRIDAY RUNWAY RE-CAP!).  So enjoy the Season Six premiere tonight (9:00PM ET/8:00PM CT), along with all the trappings of past designers and hungry models, and I’ll see you bright and early Friday morning with a little re-cap list of awesome moments.

    I’ve got tears of laughter drenching my irises (taken from one story by the hilarious aughor, P.G. Wodehouse!

    Renee said I need to come out of hiding…….OK, I’m her Mom! Even if I weren’t this extremely gifted (no, not the short bus kind!) child’s Mom, I would still LOVE and RAVE about her reviews -actually I would probably brag about anything she even scribbled. To her older Sister, who will be reading this; NO, Renee was not always my favorite! Geesh, kids!

    Back to the review; I do love witty, snappy writing and this is some of the snappiest I’ve read today. I was a devotee of Project Runway until they changed stations and then I couldn’t find them or remember when they were on so I’ve missed the last couple seasons but I, also, will be riveted to my TV tonight! I love Tim Gunn and the crazier of the contestants like Santino and Jay Carroll( I think he’s from Runway but I could be mistaken because I like the other clothing design show – can’t remember the name – and have been watching that one since I couldn’t find Project Runway). I’ll be reading tomorrow!

    Hugs,
    Carol (Mom)

    I’m equal parts embarassed, amused and delighted by your comments Mom.

    At least your mom knows how to leave comments. I think it’s sweet.

    She is internet savy, it’s true :)

    I would totally watch your Project Runderdome show. You should totally be pitching that to Lifetime instead of giving your genius away for free on this here blog. Although I will want 10% for coming up with “Project Runderdome,” obviously.

    (Also, Lifetime needs to adopt your slogan for real. Just sayin’.)

    That said, your mom wins for “gifted (no, not the short bus kind!)”.

    I seriously need a Project Runderdome t-shirt

    Maybe I just love Project Runway, or maybe that is your most awesomely hillarious post yet!

    And yes, your mom did pay me to say that… I hurt because I care ;)

    You just like biting people, dont lie.

    Dayanna found it much more hilarious after I explained the Thunderdome (or thunderdrome as she calls it). It was also a nice touch to include the video clip as that helped to explain it to her.

    This post makes is VERY clear that I need to stop being so cheap and get decent cable. If I do not, how am I ever going to get to be a part of the Project Runway trash ( that I secretly and desperately) love?

  12. Renee on August 21, 2009 at 5:18 pm

    I love it that Dayanna loved my post before she actually really and completely understood the references. And Jennifer, YES YOU DO!
