Alright, fans of other Bravo reality shows get ready to put on the breaks. I was really hoping to like TD as well as Project Runway, but was completely disappointed. The show had promise but never delivered. Only the concept had any chance of actually succeeding. Most of the contestants were weak and the bias for the gay contestants was blatant. Don't go crying foul, I say that and I am gay. The host was nothing more than Big Brother's Chin-Bot in boy drag. The judges were sub par. First off, you have the alleged designer Adler who's most clever thing to do is sit there dressed like Paul Lynde and say "See ya Later Decorator." LAME. Then another women who deserves a choice word or two from Elle. Please send the Elle ladies packing from all shows. The best judge is that walking mop. Not even rockers from 1980's hair-bands had frizz that big. In addition, using the chef from Top Chef was just cheap. One of my biggest complaints about the challenges is that the judges obviously had a very specific thing or theme in mind for each challenge but kept to themselves. If they aren't going to communicate their hopes for the outcomes of these designs then they are just sabotaging the designers' chances of success. Overall HGTV's contest for the next great designer beat this show out of the water and I am so over HGTV. I would say better luck next season but i think I'll just stick to Project Runway. For bravo shows it goes, Runway, always a yes. Top Chef, so far just first season. A run for the hills NO for Top Desig. However, the new show Shear Genius looks promising thus far.
