What is up with Project Runway this season?

Project Runway airs every Thursday at 9PM EST and the fans this season are disappointed! Every time I look at the Runway Facebook page, the top comments are negative. The ratings have gone down, as well. So what are these concerns that Runway fans have about the current season?

1) “Bring back Michael Kors and get rid of Zac Posen!” There are so many comments like this, it’s ridiculous. However, I can’t say I disagree. First and foremost, Zac does not fit in with the show. He’s a brilliant, respected designer and he does have some valuable things to say… but ultimately, he does not make interesting television. Michael was fun and brought life to the show. Zac was just not the right replacement. Isaac Mizrahi would have been fabulous!…but he’s already a judge on All-Stars AND he had his own Runway knock-off show.

2) “The judges never choose a good winning outfit!” Right on, once again. I have a lot of respect for all of the designers because I know that it’s very difficult to do what is being asked while you’re being followed around by camera-people and producers. That being said, the looks this season have been fantastically disappointing. Time after time, Kini and Fäde produce good work and get very little recognition while Amanda and Sandhya get praised for some of the least appealing looks of the runway (once again, nothing against them personally).

3) “Heidi needs to dress her age.” This is where I disagree. If you or I looked like Heidi Klum at age 41 with four kids (or just in general), we’d probably show off too. Also remember that this is Lifetime Television not a PTA meeting. If you don’t like it, change the channel.

4) “The judges are so mean to the contestants!” I would be honored to be critiqued by the best people in the business. Just to be in the presence of Tim and/or Heidi would be a dream come true. This is one of the greatest opportunities these people will have in their lives. If anything, I feel bad for the judges that they have to look at such eyesores week after week. If the contestants don’t like the negative feedback, they should produce better work. Plus, I doubt they take it as personally as the viewers at home. The people at home don’t see all the cameras and the producers. They can forget that it’s just a TV show. The contestants probably can’t.

So do YOU agree with what’s being said about PR13? What complaints (or praises) do you have?  Let me know!

Wiedersehen,

Molly.

    SO glad I found your site and thanks for the comment. I agree 100%, for me your #1 is the biggie…. Posen just is not good, he is boring and seems to take great joy is cutting the designers down. He needs to go. If Michael doesn’t want to come back, bring in Christian Siriano, he’s been through it all and he is a better designer than Posen.

    As for what Heidi wears…. if I looked like her, I would walk around naked!

      That’d be great! Christian is a superstar! I’d love to see him as a judge on the main show. He will be a judge on the new spin-off though. Called “Threads” 🙂

    This is very true, I LOVED Michael Kors as a judge on Project Runway… Posen just isn’t the same.

    Oh. My. God.
    I agree with this post a million times over. PR this season has been AWFUL. I don’t GET it. I don’t get the winning designs, even though I like Sadhya. I think she’s surprisingly spunky.

    That being said, I still… watch it. It’s my guilty pleasure.

      Haha same here! I really like Sandhya as a person but literally the only look of hers that I liked was the Heidi dress.

    I still watch PR and enjoy it but I think the biggest thing with it is, that is starting to feel staged or scripted or contrived. I think they chosoe looks they do not like to start a twitter war etc. Probably not the judges idea, but the producers. So there is more controversy etc. But if a show like this loses its authenticity it is not good.

      I agree with you. When it gets to the point that everything is so clearly set up, it’s just not as interesting and it becomes annoying. Which is too bad! Runway is/was one of my favorite shows.

    Oh and I agree with #3 it is bloody 2014… women do not have to “dress their age” that is pathetic.

    I agree with everything you said. Heidi should feel free to wear as many miniskirts as she can while her legs still look the way they do! And I cannot believe Char was sent home over Sandhya last week. The entire outfit was Sandhya’s idea.

    I totally agree. This season could’ve been better and some of the outfits that win aren’t cute. I think the show will be cancelled in a few seasons
