Final Four, Final Thoughts
(Wendy Pepper is of course the exception here, but since she’s going to have to bear the mantle of being the biggest bitch the show’s ever seen for years to come, we think it’s safe to say she’s the exception that proves the rule.)
You couldn’t find four more different people than Uli, Laura, Michael, and Jeffrey and yet, as seems to almost always be the case at this point, the four of them seem relaxed with each other and to genuinely enjoy each other’s company.
Plus, it’s always at this point that they tend to get a little loopy.
Okay, a lot loopy.
We’re not so naive as to think that they’re all BFF’s now, but the way they’re so relaxed and even intimate with each other is both refreshing and a joy to watch.
When we think of past seasons at this point, we think of Kara Saun trying to help Jay out with his Nancy O’Dell dress, or Kara hustling to help Chloe finish her plant dress even though Kara’s own garment wasn’t complete, or the tears shed over Nick’s auf’ing and the anger over Austin’s, or even Daniel V. having a heart-to-heart with the other designers about his recent coming-out.
Oh sure, the bitchery always comes back with the reunion show and Bryant Park, but it’s nice after 10 or so weeks of manufactured drama to just watch the remaining designers, all of whom have strong fan followings at this point (again, disregard La Pepper), laugh and joke and help each other out, forgetting for a moment that they’re supposed to be Backstabbing Bitches of Fashion.
