Raw Talent Season 4, Episode 10

I'll admit, I peeked on this one. Usually, I'm not a fan of spoilers, but I read the challenge description and was very disappointed. I couldn't believe Project Runway would charter this territory. However, tonight actually turned out well! I can't believe I ended up enjoying this challenge. It was one of my favorites thanks to the "models". I'd take the women of the WWE and use them for the rest of the season if I could! They were full of personality and so happy to work with the designers. The Challenge: The designers were introduced to the top six female wrestlers of the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment). The wrestlers were not runway models, but they have beauty, poise and personality. All of the wrestlers were confident and had their own unique sense of style for the ring. Each designer chose a wrestler and went to work. The Designers: The fabric was bought at Spandex House. Oh, the lovely fabric that stretches it's a part of our everyday lives whether we want to admit it or not. However, shiny silver and pink spandex remind me of a dance costume I wore in 1988. Even as a dancing six year old, I knew it was a fashion-don't. Times haven't changed in that department. Sweet P and Rami were both in trouble the moment they left the store. Sweet P's model, Candace, is the top female wrestler in the WWE. I don't know if that means she has won the most matches or she is a fan favorite or perhaps both. Her wrestling attire is loud and proud. It shines and sparkles for the whole audience to see. She may have seemed difficult during the challenge, but Sweet P should have known what to expect and chose a better color fabric for her design. My girl Jillian did a fantastic job. Her wrestler is the girl-next-door who enjoys sports. A beautiful tomboy. I loved the blue and white color scheme. The boy shorts looked like miniature boxing shorts and the top was stylish, sexy and secure. Christian did a fabulous job. His last "make the customer proud" challenge was the teenage drama, er, prom queen. However, Christian really took this challenge and ran with it. His model said she loved leather and lace and that's exactly what she got. Her entire outfit was well made, especially the jacket. The black, leather chaps were perfect for the ring. I thought she looked sexy, strong and of course, fierce! Rami, like Sweet P, chose a horrible color. Hot pink. His wrestler/model said she was the all-American, "innocent" girl-next-door. I think he should have gone with a patriotic color scheme. It didn't have to be entirely red, white and blue, but the pink made her look too Wrestler Barbie. [Someone call Mattel!] Personally, I thought Rami's was the worst, but I don't think the judges will ever vote him out. Chris' green, leopard fabric worried me at first. I've never understood people's fascination with animal prints, especially colorized leopard. Then, Chris' creation started to come together. When his model tried on her hooded jacket, I was so impressed. It looked fantastic on her. When she stepped onto the runway my mouth dropped. The entire look came together so well. The cage-inspired top was well-fit and sexy. The black glitter shorts and gloves matched the lined, leopard hoodie beautifully. It actually looked expensive and wearable; as in, "I want to be a green leopard for Halloween" wearable. Still good! The Decision: Chris won and Ricky was auf'd. Ricky didn't do a horrible job. If it has been a Victoria Secret swimsuit challenge he would have been safe. I didn't think the orange was awful, but the gold tunic was cheap looking and unnecessary. I agree with Christian, although Ricky won last week, I personally do not think he was top six material. Even if he had done exceptionally well tonight, I still would have wanted him to go home. I also think Sweet P needs to go. I adore her personality and charm, but she's way out of her league. Christian, Rami and Jillian are on a much higher level. Chris has always been one of my favorites, but he needs to bring his game. He has done well with extreme challenges (Avant-Garde and WWE), but can he make it to Bryant Park?
