Project Runway - Season 3 - The Secret Episode
First the four designers, Uli, Jeffrey, Michael and Laura, are sleeping in Atlas and are woken up by a little "ding dong" at the door. Who is it? Tim Gunn of course!!!
OH NO!!! NOT ANGELA AND VINCENT AGAIN!!!
And slowly they come out....
Oh wait, that is the wrong show.
And here they come....
(sound of screeching tires - who is Starr?)
The designers are told that Bravo has been doing a poll all season of what designers the fans want back from prior seasons- and these were the top 10 designers.
The entire group is shocked. I mean how did Starr get picked? Wouldn't someone like Robert or Kara Saun get picked over Starr?
The designers are brought back to the workroom to be told their next challenge...
The designers start to get to work....
Guest Judge - Tim Gunn!!!!
And here is the runway:
The judges said that Uli really knew how to represent Miami and make a bathing suit to fit the style and attitude that Miami gives off. Yellow like the bright sun with plenty of room for silocone!
Safe - Jay
Jay said he had a hard time figuiring out where he is from. We all know he grew up in a small town but he has been in NY for such a long time now that he had to represent that city. The Judges didn't care what he said - he won Season 1 so anything he does is wonderful!
Starr explained that she came from Planet Xando. The Judges were like, who are you again?
Daniel started talking about bringing the sexy back. Then he confessed his love for Starr. The whole room was very confused. Confused enough to forget to judge on his outfit.
Daniel said he feels he can't represent one place because he has traveled so much and so he represented an international feel. The Judges wondered why he didn't win Season 2 and automatically kept him in just for being so cute.
Shetangy talked about coming from 1972. She didn't realize the challenge was about a city - she thought they said time zone. Then she asked for the Judges to do a walk off. Yes A MOTHER FUCKING WALK OFF! The Judges just looked at her like she was nuts and moved on.
Santino said he is representing his own world - Santino World. The World where he won Project Runway and fairies and elves ruled the world. Somehow the Judges loved it.
Austin talked about goddesses and ancient Greece. When Nina called him out for not being from ancient Greece he broke into tears and said this is all he knows how to design. The Judges were just happy to see tears on the runway.
Andrae wanted to convey Zorro and said he has his roots in Latin America. He then went on a 20 minute rant about how important heritage is and how happy he was to be back on the show and how confused he was to see Starr there and how sad it was that he wasn't closer friends with the designers still and how he has a new line coming out next fall...eventually the cameras ran out of film and had to cut and move onto the next designer.
Nick talked about how Paris Hilton called him and was all like "Nick make me an outfit" and so he didn't have time to make a bathingsuit, so he is showing this outfit instead. The Judges understood this whole episode was just a cheap shot to get extra ratings and mentioning Paris Hilton's name might do that - so they were happy.
Wendy talked about how it was just a party to be back on the show and she wanted her design to reflect that. Then her model's bathingsuit desintegrated and the balloons flew away. It was very embarassing but Wendy didn't blink an eye at it.
Jeffrey talked about Southern California girls and polka dots. He was inspired by the beach boys and Gwen Stefani. Michael Kors said this is so goth and he didn't see Gwen at all. Nina was like what are you talking about, Michael? And thus, we had our first Judge cat-fight.
Michael got up and just raised the roof and shouted ATL ATL!!! The Judges were like, how does he do it everyweek? We love it!!!
Laura told the Judges that she would never DARE wear a bathingsuit. If she would even lower herself to sitting at the country club's pool deck should would be appropriately attired. That said, she used a waterproof stretchy fabric just in case one of her 15 kids splashed her.
In the end since none of the 4 designers from Season 3 were cut, they all moved onto Olympus Fashion Week and all the special guest designers were sent back to their post-reality show lives.
