Project Runway Limps to the Finish

Posted by Brandon |

Why is Bravo so terrible at finishing their series? Every Project Runway season so far and the first Top Chef season both limped into the final episodes and dampened my enthusiasm for finding out who wins.

This Project Runway season went full bore for ten straight episodes but when we got down to four finalists, they took a week off and showed a season two marathon, then they showed an extremely boring episode where everybody's designs stunk and nobody got kicked off, this week they had a reunion, next week we get part one of the finals and finally, on October 18th, we learn who wins. At that point, I'll just be relieved that there aren't any more delays.

Tonight, Death? properly diagnosed Vincent. Seriously, no joke. This guy has Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Here are the diagnostic criteria according to Wikipedia (so take it for what it's worth), at least five of the following are necessary for a diagnosis:
  1. has a grandiose sense of self-importance
  2. is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
  3. believes that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by other special people
  4. requires excessive admiration
  5. strong sense of entitlement
  6. takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
  7. lacks empathy
  8. is often envious or believes others are envious of him or her
  9. arrogant affect
Anybody who has watched this season, or even a couple of episodes can see that Vincent displays all nine of these criteria. Vincent isn't a little weird or crazy, he has an actual personality disorder. Surprise, surprise.

Did you see him tonight go off about his laundry and how he just laughed about it afterwards. He can't see how scary that was which is another big part of his disorder. And don't miss his tirade on the Bravo site about "blogspots". It's priceless.

UPDATE - Minutes after posting this I decided to do a little research and it turns out that many people have suggested that all of the contestants have this personality disorder. But, I think it is particularly true for Vincent. He exudes at least five of the criteria while the others have massive amounts of one or two and only show traces of the others.

But the biggest problem with Vincent?


I could write off his freakish behavior if he had any talent, but he doesn't! His work in no way flatters the female form, and he habitually makes beautiful women look bad. Do you know how hard you have to work in order to make a model look BAD? He should have been voted off at the very beginning.

Totally weak sauce episodes these last couple of weeks. I love how no one got kicked off the one show...ummmm...thought this was a competition? And then the reunion episode, ya, 35 minutes of footage we'd already seen, 6 minutes of mildly entertaining new dialouge, 4 minutes of laughing at Vincent's freak out, and 14 minutes of commercials.

All I have to say is Jeffrey better not win or I will riot.

how many times did i tell you fuckers? no fucking fluff and fold you motherfuckers!


I really like Project Runway last season. Santino and Andre and making fun of Tim. It was fun to watch.

This season lacks all that. You barely see Tim Gun. And all you have (or did) to look forward to was watching to see if Jeffery killed Angela yet.
