Do You Agree With the Three Project Runway Finalists?

Spoiler alert! The last episodes of Project Runway gave a glimpse into the real lives of the finalists. Tim pays visits to their hometowns, where they've been working on their final collections for a month. Learning the roots of the designers is cool; seeing their work spaces, their surroundings, their family, their friends. And Tim really shines as their mentor. Aw.

The challenge was to create a wedding dress — oh, and a last-minute bridesmaid dress — and the results were eye opening. It really showed who had a vision. I was a bit disappointed in Korto's — does any woman want to wear beige on her wedding day? — and was blown away by Leanne's. Kenley got the quick insult of her dress resembling Alexander McQueen's Fall collection (it's so true). And Jerell's adorned gown missed the mark. It's crunch time people. Do you agree with the final three? Or did someone prematurely get auf'd?

I would have preferred Jerrell over Korto.

I felt Jerell's collection had "taste issues" so I think it was right for him to go. I'm not a fan of Kenley's attitude, but I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt that she isn't copying anyone. Lots of designers come up with similar designs all the time.

I think that in last week's challenge (Nature Calls) Kenley should have gotten the boot. Instead, it kind of seemed like they either wanted to keep her around for drama or they really didn't want Jerell to go to Fashion Week. The decision for all four to create collections and THEN decide which three should go should not have been made. If anything, it should have been like last season where the bottom two designers would have to battle it out. Still, if that were the case, Korto would have been eliminated and her collection was one of the best (after Leanne). I don't know. I just think Kenley really doesn't deserve to be there.

I guess I'm happy, because Leeane and Kenley (despite my dislike for her) did have the best dresses, and I think the judges are likely to give the win to Leeane because her collection is quite cohesive, and looking at the pieces individually, not boring.

I'm sad that Jarrell's collection is not in the running. A couple of the dresses in his collection were really beautiful (if gaudy). Korto's wedding dress was only marginally better and I just find her collection so boring.

I don't want Kenley to win. She's not talented. In fact her designs for the most part are designer knock offs . Her aesthetic is nothing new and her silhouettes are Blah. The 1950's look is so played out she should just design for the girl that wants to stay a Rock a billy forever. I'm routing for Leanne. Fresh, classic, and to a certain extent has this surrealist feel . You could send Leanne to Paris Fashion week with an amazing team and all the gorgeous fabrics and she will make it. The other's not so much.

I think this is the McQueen dress Michael Kors was talking about:

true. I just hope she doesnt win. I didnt really want Christian to win and he did, I totally didnt want Jeffery to win and he did... because Bravo's all about the drama, Kenley will probably win. :(

Let's not forget that Kenley shouldn't have made it to the final 4 at the first place! She should have been eliminated long ago! Remember that hip-pop look? How about the dragon slayer barbie dress!

mommie, you're talking about Jeffrey. I haven't seen the whole episode yet so I dunno what their collections look like. I must agree with bastylefilegirl about the manipulation of the producer's on this season. Just because there wouldn't have been "drama" if Kenley did leave doesn't mean it wouldn't have been a good show. I think it might actually have been ::gasp:: about the fashion!!! Plus, they were still a bunch of characters left that were I dunno actually kind of funny. So this whole need for drama is a load of crap.

When I saw the runway shows (all five of the designers had shows) I seriously thought that Jerell, Korto, and Leanne's was amazing and Kenley and that creepy guy's clothes were more joke than actual work. Jerell's wedding dress was bad, but the rest of his line was gorgeous!

Korto should have gone home while jerrel's dress last nice was bad, kortos was worse. her dress lacked design, focus, and an over all vision. jerell always does something fab

F**K Bravo, they let this show go down the shitter. its such a shame. It was RIDICULOUS that Jerell even had to compete for a spot at Bryant Park. He won that last challenge and by the rules of the competition that should have guaranteed him a spot. sigh. one of the only two reality shows that i watch and i'm so disapointed.

Kenley should be out! Her designed are not original and she has no respect for others. Her bridesmaid dress was beautiful, but that's the only thing she's made on the show that is/was. I guess she just got lucky. Poor Jarrell, the bust on his wedding dress was dreadful and such a poor choice of color!

I have a lot of opinions today but I'm going to say them anyway. With the sneak peak of the lines, I was not impressed with Korto's, Jerrell's or Leanne's, did we see that much of Kenley's? I thought the wedding dress was the feature of Tim's visit with her.

I have to say, for me, this season's designer's weren't as talented as past seasons.

I didn't like any of the bride dresses but loved Kenley's bridesmaid dress. Kenley reminds me of a female version of Santino and, oh gosh, his name has slipped my mind (the tatoo guy from LA). I think her attitude shows she is a fighter but she does need to learn to take constructive criticism from the experts. I would ask if she were a guy would she be treated badly? I thought Leanne's was too much of the same stuff she shows all the time and I didn't like the wave action at all. Hated the other two gowns. Kenley's was the least ugly.

Jerrell's point of view has been the same since the first episode he's a little over the top,opulent and "blingy" and that's what he made last night. He was current and Fashion forward, and Kenley regardless of the challange stayed retro and her dress last night was a little to clost to Mcqueens however her executions throughout the show has been great with the exception of the pants she made for Leanne which should have sent her home. If we are talking just about last nights looks Korto should have went home that's hard for me to say because she's one of my favorites. Her Bridesmaid dress was the same color as the wedding dress and that is a NO NO there can only be one bride and if the bride is wearing red then no one else should!

definitely agree - love Leanne and Korto, and even though I can't stand Kenley, she has an amazing point of view and I love her style - while Jerrel had some good ideas, his POV was never very solid or all that spectacular - I'm rooting for Korto though! even though I think Leanne will probably win...

I hate to say that I agree with this final three -- I really wanted it to be Jerell rather than Kenley, but his wedding and bridesmaid dresses really didn't measure up. I think it was fair. I liked many of his choices over Kenley's throughout the season, but it's true his clothes looked sloppy and there were times I questioned his taste level. From the beginning of the season I knew (or at least hoped) that Leanne and Korto would be at the top.. but I also thought Kelli would be there and Wesley too (ha, that judgement was so premature, but I still would like to see what he would have done the rest of the season)...

Kenley should have gone home a while ago....absolutely cannot stand what she brings to the show (drama and attitude!) She has not consistently been original or one of the best and I really do believe its producers keeping her on....such a disgrace. And def best line of the night go's to Jerrell with "If you want a basic white tee you can get that from Michael Kors." hahaha

Whatever, Kenley haters!! She's not nearly as mean as Korto and Leanne. They're such catty bullies. Go Kenley!

i have to reluctantly agree, although Jerrell was a lot stronger throughout the whole season.
