“Project Runway” (Lifetime) can be seen each Thursday evening at 9/8 p.m. Last night’s episode on Aug. 28, 2014 was called, “Rock the Wedding.” It was the 6th episode of the 13th TV season. In the overnight TV ratings it garnered 2.237 million TV viewers overall. It grabbed 0.8 in the all important 18 to 49 adult demographic.
The “Project Runway” judges each week are, Tim Gunn (mentor), Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia & Zac Posen. A guest celebrity judge joins the panel each week. Last night, the guest judges were Chiara Ferragni & Dita Von Teese.
There are 10 designers left after two who were eliminated last week. The “Rock the Wedding” episode design challenge goes like this, “Inspired by the new trend in un-traditional wedding dresses worn by rock stars on their big day – the designers must wow the judges with their own version of an unconventional wedding dress.”
“Rock the Wedding” opened with Amanda Valentine claiming that Native American designer Korina Emmerich called her a “phoney” which made her cry. Korina designed an awful evening dress last week & she barely made it to the next round. All of the judges hated her dress. She is hurt & lashing out at Amanda because of her own mistakes. Another designer sees Korina as angry who brings down her roommates so she could win the competition. The Native Hawaiian designer Kini Zamora has been “wowing” all the judges with his designs.
Each designer had to team up with another as a couple. Amanda & Korina were teamed up & right away Korina didn’t trust Amanda completely. They all had $400 to spend on fabric & Tim tells them to be creative, but head toward a wedding. Amanda confesses that Char & Korina both attacked her verbally. All are roommates & it seems that Char plus Korina resent Amanda for winning challenges.
Korina keeps defeating herself after any hint of judgement on her designs. She again isn’t finished with her jacket. Char also struggles by putting herself in a position of working with yellow. It shows & all the other designers see it. Amanda ends up making Korina’s pants & it doesn’t fit the model. Surprisingly, Amanda & Korina had enough votes to go through to the next round. They were in the middle of the lowest & highest voting scores.
The judges ripped apart all the other designs except for Kini & Sean’s. They then took a moment to look at all the designs up close & personal. Char began crying in the back room. Unfortunately, she was sent home & Sean was the winner of this challenge. You can watch “Rock the Wedding” at the “Lifetime” website.
