Up On The Roof
One of the great things about S1 (aside from the higher-than-normal levels of crazy) is that the designers and cast were far more likely to party on camera.
Everything was so raw this season, so the designers didn’t all come into it with big ambitions the way later designers did. They just seemed to wander around, wide-eyed in front of the cameras, not quite sure how they were supposed to act. Plus, the median age was kind of low – a lot of the designers were under 30 and a handful of them were under 25.
Certainly, there was no small amount of tension, drama and scheming that eventually found its way into the competition, but this group really did have a camaraderie, a “summer camp” vibe that later groups didn’t. We’re not saying they all liked each other, but (with some notable exceptions) they didn’t seem to have any problem getting along with each other.
And they knew how to have a good time.
Well, most of them, anyway.
Do you have any idea just how much we want to hang out and party on a Manhattan rooftop with a bunch of chainsmoking models doing a walk-off? Do you?
MELISSA! You fabulous teenage whore! We missed you.
And sorry girls, you’re all good, but the minute Heidi entered that game, she owned it.
