"Project Runway": Sabotage?

In the first five minutes of part one of the “Project Runway” season finale, Kenley said the other three designers tried to sabotage her.

She was wrong, because actually what they did was just tell the truth. But I still can’t shake the feeling there was some sabotage going on—not by the contestants, but by the producers and Bravo.

Why else would the show be doing such lame stuff?

Last night, Heidi sent the final four to design their collection for Bryant Park, but they would also have to do another challenge by designing a wedding dress.

Where did that even come from? There was no bride client, or a visit to a wedding venue. It was just tacked on to the collection.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, when they returned to New York, they were told they had to design a bridesmaid dress to go with it.

So basically they spent all that work on a collection the judges didn’t even get a glimpse of.

Huh?

Of course what ended up happening was that Korto, who appears to have a strong collection, stumbled on the wedding stuff and was almost eliminated.

Fortunately for her, the judges liked Jerell’s gown less and he was eliminated—even though he also appeared to have an interesting collection.

Worst of all, however, is that Kenley totally nailed the bridal challenge, but her collection seemed totally off with her use of ropes wrapped around the neck.

Of course, all of this could have been avoided if the judges had not taken the easy way out and eliminated Kenley last week. But they wanted to hold onto the villain.

And even though Kenley’s half-hearted apology appeased her fellow designers this week, it appears the you-know-what is back next week, giving the show exactly what they wanted.

Sadly, however, it’s not what we wanted…
