WIN: Emilio & Anthony
Could this episode have had a little more drama, please? Maya leaves! Seth Aaron's model leaves! Anthony comes back! The other model comes back to be Seth Aaron's model! Heidi flashes Jay! Anthony stays up til 2:30! Jonathan makes three different dresses, each one worse than the one before it! Jessica Alba guests judges! Two winners!!! Aaaahhhhh!!! It's so crazy! And holy cow, Heidi Klum is one tough client. I do NOT envy these designers.
I'm so happy for Anthony and Emilio- how convenient that Jessica Alba loved Anthony's dress, right? Heidi, Michael & Nina must have loved it, too, or they would't have named Anthony as an additional winner. I think it was positively serendipitous how it all worked out. Emilio made the perfect dress for Heidi, while Anthony made the perfect dress for Jessica without even knowing she'd be there to judge! And I also agree wholeheartedly with the judges decision to auf Jonathan. It was his time. He hasn't really been a top contender, but more of a middle-of-the-road contestant. When it gets this close to the finale of the show, the mediocre designers just have to go. Of course I feel bad for him being auf'd because he's a nice person, but in the end I think it was a good call.
Best quote of the episode: "It looks like something the Real Housewives of New Jersey would wear! - Nina
On a side note, I am not a regular viewer of the "Models of the Runway" show. However, last week I did watch it. It was a very tense episode because Seth Aaron's model Valeria was considering taking a different modeling gig and leaving the show. In the end, she made a HUGE deal out of saying how despite the great opportunity, she was going to choose to stay with Seth Aaron. She was very dramatic about it and really played up the whole "loyalty" angle. And the gorgeous Cerri (whose accent I adore, btw) got booted because Valeria chose to stay. Anyway, my point is that I don't understand why she made such a huge show out of staying on the show, only to quit a day later! Is that something the producers told her to do simply because they thought it would make for a more dramatic couple of episodes? Or did she think of that all on her own? Or did she truly have a change of heart? I suppose we'll never know.
