Project Runway Season Four. Episode Ten: WWE Divas & A Visit to Spandex House. Memorable Quotes

This week’s challenge involved spandex, big hair, more spandex, an abundance of day-glo colors, leopard print, a visit to Spandex House, and a single pair of chaps. No, the designers were not creating outfits for a Poison reunion tour, but instead designing costumes for the ‘WWE – Divas’ to wear in the ring. The winner of this challenge would have their design worn during a wrestling match by their Diva… because it certainly wouldn’t be worn anywhere else.

Once led to a pair of double doors and after hearing moans and groans coming from within the runway room, the designers were introduced to their models/divas with only a modicum of dread. The designers picked who they would like to work for and got to know them and their style, or in this case lack there of. Most described themselves as being the “girl next door”, but in this case they were girls next door who happened to wear spandex and enjoyed kicking ass. Needless to say, the designers hated this challenge, except Chris, who happened to be the winner and is known for his experience in costume designing. Surprisingly, Christian also enjoyed this challenge (and threw around the word “fierce” as if it were the only word in his vocabulary), claiming it was his favorite thus far, and as always he was surprised that he didn’t win in the end and left the runway with a bitter look on his face. I was somewhat surprised myself that Christian didn’t win. While I absolutely loved Chris’s leopard-print hooded sweatshirt with sequined lining and think that it definitely could be worn outside the ring, Christian’s leather and lace interpretation certainly looked great and had to have been the most creative and distinct look on the runway.

With little drama and an even lesser surprises in this episode, I think we can all breathe a sigh of relief that last week’s challenge held no immunity for the winner and we can all wave a tearless goodbye to sob-story Ricky. Ricky’s design this week would have looked great on the beach, but on the runway and in the ring wouldn’t and didn’t hold up. And while I think Sweet P’s lingerie was maybe the most heinous, I couldn’t take one more week of tearful Ricky crying over every little thing. But, when it came down to saying goodbye, Ricky was finally man enough to keep in the tears.

Now, a moment for me to rant: Why is there a model competition when 1. Everyone sticks with the same model and 2. The models are only used in half the episodes? Even in this episode Jillian admitted that the model sent home had talent, but Ricky sent her home to stick with his model, who will without a doubt be sent home next week.

Chris – The winner




Sweet P
