Project Runway Rundown: Episode 12, "Reunion"

Project Runway Rundown: Episode 12, "Reunion"

What's not to love about last night's Project Runway reunion special? We got to see contestants like Marion and Simone again (can you even remember these two?), there were hilarious video recaps and outtakes, and best of all, we got to see the contestants' new haircuts (or, in Ricky's case, a new hat). There's even the $10,000 fan favorite prize, which as of last night, you all were torn between Christian and Chris for the most deserving. Alas, you'll have to read after the jump to see who took home the cash.

But with all of the fun, last night took a somber tone too. Jack's departure from the show due to health concerns was a focus, and it seemed that he made the right choice to leave as he subsequently spent five days in the hospital. The other designers commented on how that affected them. Christian was sad to see him go, and Victorya was upset/angry. She didn't dive into her emotions, but it seemed as if she was biting her tongue about something. The silver lining would be if Jack returns for season five, but we'll just have to wait and see.

To hear more about the reunion special, including my favorite videos of the night and who took home the fan favorite prize,


The thing I liked most about the reunion special was definitely the video recaps. Each video focused on a designer and highlighted his or her specific schtick. The best:

  • Elisa: Elisa truly is from another planet, and this video proved it. What with spitting on fabric, talking about her creations as if they were either piñatas or couture dresses, and writing backwards, this girl certainly is cuckoo. My favorite moment was when Chris said "keep your brainwaves off me." Love it.
  • Ricky: Oh, the crying. I could have seen this one coming, but what I didn't expect were some of Ricky's quotes. "I'm an emotional person, yes, but I don't cry all that much," and "I'm very emotional, but I can control it." Um, really, Ricky? Regardless, the genius lay in the editing: These quotes were followed by countless crying scenes.
  • Chris: From crying to laughing. Chris's video was all about his laugh. As Kevin called it, it's a very "hyena-cackle" laugh. I could sympathize with the designers who thought it was cute at first but progressively more painful as the days pressed on. The funniest moment of this montage was when Chris laughed loudly inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It was as if he was screaming in a library.
  • Michael Kors: Chris's laughter video was cute, but the Michael Kors laughing fit was hysterical. For a judge who's usually so reserved and poker faced on the runway, he really lost it during the wrestling competition. Michael just couldn't handle it when Ricky's model did a sexy move at the end of the runway. From there he couldn't stop laughing. As Kit said, it was like a kid in church. I loved how the Heatherette designers' faces seemed to say, "What's going on over there, Mr. Kors?"
  • Christian: And what would a reunion special be without an homage to Christian and his fierceness? Seriously how many times does this boy say fierce throughout the day? I especially loved how all of the designers made fun of him. I haven't seen Jillian more lively than when she was emulating Christian. But more fierce than anything was Christian describing his hairstyle in three parts: party, business, and money-maker. Amazing.

And in the end, Mr. Fierce himself took home the prize for fan favorite and received the $10,000 check.

What did you guys think of the episode? Is Christian fierce enough to deserve the fan favorite prize? And what about next week's previews? Who's still in it to win it: Chris or Rami?

I was also wondering what was going on between Rami and Chris. They were very touchy-feely. I wonder how close they've gotten. Carmen got on my nerves. Who does she think she is, snapping at Heidi. But Heidi didn't even notice or remember her. lol.

Why did Vyctoria bother to show up if she was just going to have an attitude the entire time? Her personality is as bland as the Clear Eyes guy's voice. Carmen needs to get over herself. Just face it, you sucked and thats why no one missed you. Ricky didnt think all his crying was entertaining. Neither did I. He had the nerve to say he cries "like a woman". He cries more than any woman I know. Ugh, they made watching the reunion show a chore for me.

grits, I totally thought the same thing about Chris and Rami - very affectionate, and they said that this process has brought them closer together. Awwww.... Chris has been my fav since day 1 - I love his personality. ProjRun certainly led him (and us) on a rollercoaster of emotion this season. (He's in, he's out, he's in, he's maybe in, maybe not....)

I really was bothered by Sweet P's attitude as someone else said. She's just not that great. It just came off like bragging, and it was a shame, because I used to think she was really sweet. I love Chris, but i really don't think his designs are that great all the time. They can be a little bit... gaudy? not exactly haute couture looking? CHRISTIAN SHOULD WIN! and i still like victorya. i agree about her not being a super emotional person in general. it's just her personality. go her for getting a show!

i hate reunion shows too, but my love for project runway cancelled that out. i was thinking the same thing too, how awkward it would have been if chris didn't win fan fave. oh well. i really loved seeing some of jillian's personality. i always thought she was a good designer, but never really cared for her on the show. always thought she was whiny and annoying. it's so nice to see how she really is (without the extreme pressure of a deadline). now, i'll be rooting for her a bit more in the finale! oh, for any of you big project runway fans out there, i would stay away from watching E! until after the finale. during one of their E! news shows (i think the one with ryan seacrest), they totally showed the final three!!! i am currently sending them hate mail as we speak!!!

Yay Christian! I'm on board for bringing back Jack next season. Carmen and Victorya need to get over themselves, big time.

And why was Victorya angry about Jack leaving?
californiagirlx7 californiagirlx7 9 years
carak- yeah i agree, Carmen was acting like a bitch. She wanted everyone to care that she left even though she wasn't there that long and then she got so defensive when Heidi mentioned one bad design that she did.

I LOVE Christian! He is FIERCE! This season is def a tuff 1, because I really like all the finalist. They are so VERY talented! Seriously though, WHAT is up with those HIDEOUS hats Ricky wears? Did he design those too? LOL! Oh & Carmen needs to get over herself! GOOD LORD! They didn't miss me, boo f'in hoo. Shut up! Oh they said my outfit wasn't good enough .. IT WASN"T! It's not like anyone said all her designs were bad, it was just the one that got her kicked off. Not like RICKY who by some miracle stayed on as long as he did! He shoulda got kicked off NOT Kevin! And someone PLEASE take the stick out Victoria's butt!

I agree that Victorya seemed to have the perverbiable "stick up her ass" last night. I think that, as has been pointed out, she and Jack were very close with one another. Therefore, I think that she has the same beef with Chris coming back that others expressed when it first occurred, and her problem has only intensified as he has continued to move along in the competition. She probably felt that Jack deserved his spot back and shouldn't be penalized for coming down with a serious illness and Chris's spot is rightfully his (in theory). I don't agree with this beef, but just want to point it out.

I was the most annoyed by Carmen as so many of you were. How selfish is it for her to be most upset about not being missed when she left? Uh...ok? I mean, I will admit that when Jack left everyone was upset and the producers made a big deal of that...but that wasn't because he absolutely sucked at the challenge like she did. For some reason that really annoyed me :)

i was soo happy christian won, he's my favorite and i love him and his fierceness. tho i liked his hair on the show better becuase it was longer. i think micheal kors was hilarious with his laugh, he just couldnt get it together. and carmen was all "nobody cares about me" maybe thats because her designs suck and she thinks the worlds out to get there. thw wholse "thanks heidi" thing was ridicilous because heidi didnt even glance at her while saying or say her name!

carmen annoyed me yesterday by getting so hurt over what heidi said, i don't even think heidi was trying to point her out - she probably didn't even remember who's design that even was at that moment. and the comment about her being hurt no one missed or cared that she left?! ARE YOU SERIOUS?! that's way too much.. NOW, about victorya - what was her deal?! she bothered me the whole nite - i understand her comment that because of the editing or something they may portray someone in a way that they may not really be, but she doesn't help her case by sitting there with this "i so hate everybody, i'm better than everybody, i don't want to be here" look. i do believe that she thinks she's better than others there especially because she did fasihon week and it comes out... and really - if jack was ill and left the show to take care of his health, then why would SHE be upset... the only i might think is that perhaps jack decided to leave and maybe she felt it was unfair to bring someone else back that was kicked off? i dunno.. just saying

How weird was it that Victorya recently showed at fashion week on her own? She had absolutely nothing to say about that when they asked her about it. You would think she would at least take the opportunity to promote herself instead of just sitting there!

ps. I hate reunion shows, so why do I watch them? I don't know!! I can't help it.

I hate reunion shows and I think I would have the same reaction as Victorya if I were on this show. She moved on, had a show at Bryant Park and now she has to come back and sit through this boring crap. And I cannot believe Christian won fan fave. He may be a good designer, but he is so damn annoying. The only good part about last night's show was Michael Kors laughing. OMG, that was priceless. I think I will enjoy wearing my MK shoes that much more now.

I think you're right, jenintx. I've read post-P.R. interviews with Jack and it seemed like he feels closer to Victorya than anyone else on that show. I think they are good friends. It would make sense that she'd be angry if he was forced to leave the show.

I thought that Jack was going to get the Viewers Choice award. Victorya was just rude the whole show Carmen - get over yourself, there doesn't need to be a 10 minute video on how much everyone missed you.

i don't think chris deserved it. while he may be talented, he's so obnoxiously egotastical, that i have to mute it if he's ever talking.

i forgot to add (just so i'm not making victorya seem so noble), especially since jack's replacement, who was already kicked off once, made it to fashion week (even if he didn't beat rami, he still got to show his collection to prevent final 3 spoilers...just like every other year).
