    yeah, it was a requirement. Those aren't donuts. I did! Upthread!

    S17.E02: The Future Is Here

    While the losing team was bad, I think I would have put the team that had the "duvet cover" as one of the members in the bottom. Another one in that group looked like a sheet with a hole cut in it for the head. Only one of the three was decent IMHO--the sheer dress with a sort of flower pattern on it.

    from what I recall, she took a larger bed (that you saw) and her comment was more how awful it would be if she ended up on one of the twins.

    One of the contestants said a watercolor cake needs three colors-- but many contestants didn't follow that, and the judges didn't seem to particularly focus on the *number* of colors, just whether it looked like watercolor.

    Somehow I just guessed that the lady with the white streak in her hair would "miraculously" choose the skunk. And MARScapone rears its ugly head again. Why can't these people learn to say it the way it is SPELLED?

    yeah, his gushing over his model went on way too long. In my mind it should have been "Oh? Awesome. You go girl. Now let's get to work."

    S07.E11: Nina Says Don't Cry Over Spilt Silk

    Yeah, where did that come from? A red silk dress pleated to high heaven is 'daytime?' Like, sure, I'd wear that to the office, or the grocery store, or a meeting with my kid's 5th grade teacher. Uh huh.

    He said something like "I forgot to ask you if you were going to wear a bra" and she said "it's ok, I'm wearing pasties." I guess that dealt with the issues of her nipples showing. I can't even remember which designer it was!

    yeah I wondered about that-- whether the judges knew it and whether that might influence them.

    That was the reason a couple of us made a sideways reference to that on her "personal thread" here. I also did some further googling and apparently she has no intention of getting chummy with her brother-in-law and his wife.

    From what I recall she quit her job and prepared to move to Chicago to live with him, and then he dumped her. She had to couch surf for awhile.

    to me it looked really close (and I was kind of rooting for Sarah). But I guess the salty bacon killed her. I appreciate the upstream poster who mentioned that Tom did *not* say "it was really really close" so I guess that's our answer. Those oysters must have been killer. I'd love the recipe.

    S16.E15: Finale

    I had the exact same thought-- but about Sara's dish! When Tom said it needed more "herbal notes" I thought "Then what the heck was that green stuff that looked like basil on her dish?" Then when they showed the beauty shot again for the full meal I thought "That's the same damn picture you showed before!" When the three of them went out to get some "egg tarts"-- as soon as I saw them I had a flash back to another reality show fave of mine-- the Great British Baking Show where they did Pastéis de Nata -- which are of course Portuguese.

    me too. It gave me a sort of Victorian Steampunk vibe. Very cool.

    Karlie Kloss: The New Heidi

    I admit I expected to hate her (terribly unfairly, for her choice of in-laws). But she came across as very authentic and just plain nice. And lordy how tall! Poor Christian looked like a munchkin next to her!
