Wasn't I just complaining about all the corporate sponsors on this season's Project Runway? When I look back over the season as a whole, it's amazing how many of my favorite designs came from the avant-garde episode — one of the few with no commercial tie-in — than from all the others put together.
So I'm slightly disappointed to find out that when ProjRun returns tonight from a strange one-week hiatus, it will be with another sponsored challenge rather than an open-ended one. That said, the setup might be one of the most absurd in the show's history: The designers will be making outfits for the Divas of the WWE. It's like the figure skating challenge and the lingerie challenge from previous seasons all rolled up into one — but with the addition of clients who could hurl you across the room if they don't like your look.
I hope this challenge will get the designers energized again. They've been looking kind of sad and downtrodden lately, don't you think? To watch a sneak preview of tonight's hot, wrestling-inspired action, just read more.
