I am so stoked for tomorrow night-and a preshow, too-woo hoo! I've missed Tim Gunn, Nina and Michael!!!! The contestants look interesting this year-there's clearly another Santino-the dude is even one of Santino's friends!

Anyone catch the pre-show? I also enjoyed seeing what some of the past designers are doing these days!

I missed that. I did watch all of the season one encore episodes-I hope they have a Wendy type on this season! I wonder if Bravo will re-air the preshow today.

oh, I know-I'm a bit disappointed that Daniel Franco didn't try out! I was on his side for quite a while, but then he made me feel a little weird for some reason.

Big fan of P.R. here! I am really looking forward to see if Robert Best can still make clothes for real women after making doll clothes for so long.

The old MDC P.R. thread had a linky to Danial Franco's My Space page. Has anyone checked it lately?

love it so far! I think Robert Best can dress real women just fine-that dress was really darling. And he's very likeable. I also loved the architect woman's coat from the rug and chandelier, and thought she was really interesting. Wasn't as crazy about bedsheet dress from the Jude Law lookalike as the judges, but it was nicely made and pretty. Malan is such a poseur! Yet I remember his name. And I don't know how long I can look at those neck tattoos on the other guy. Will definitely be an entertaining season! Oh wow-they didn't auf the person I thought they would.

I had never watched it before, but will definitely be tuning in after watching the first epi of the new season.

I think they have some great designers this season. I think it will be a great season. They really made some interesting and unique dresses last night.

Thought the rocker-stylist would have been better last night. The person who was auf'd (That is too funny) should have went. Not very creative but actually something I would have worn. I love cottony-night gowny dresses...but way too simple of a design for this show.

Like the overly-made-up mom, the cute blonde, the guy who won the challenge even with his smugnesss, the Atlanta (I believe) stylist, ummm who else? There were some good ones.

Did anyone pick up thet the dude from ATL is name Michael Knight- you know, from Knight Rider? I am such a loser- my dh loves that show so occasionally I watch it with him : and I kept giggling every time they would flash his name up on the screen.

Malan- what is up? He has the creepiest laugh EVER. And I like I posted on another board- Austin Scarlett called and wants her persona back, Malan. Send it back! Although Austin was so funny and adoable (to me), Malan is sceevy.

Laura (architect woman)- has interesting taste in her own personal clothing- but I did like her coat that she sent down the runway.

Keith- I'm glad that I wasn't the only one who thught he looked like Jude Law- lol But his dress was pretty though not my pick to win.

This is definitely going to be a good season- I just worry that as we get more season, the groupws will start to try too hard to fall into the "typical" reality roles each season and make the show lose it's appeal.

When I first saw Keith I was thinking, ok-a Cute Guy, that's good-they didn't have that last season. But then he had spittle on his chin and it completely ruined it for me.

Oh, I agree-I saw a lot of reality show stereotypes popping up last night-the absence of that was what was so refreshing about this show on the past two seasons.

dh and I LOVED last night's show!!!

we were bummed that right before the runway show a commercial came on asking viewers to text in who they thought should be "auf'd"
(one of three). and guess what-those three were the same ones they narrowed it down to

overall-GREAT cast! can't wait to see this season!

My husband knows MALAN!!! Malan makes extra money as a cater-waiter in NY. Joel was watching a repeat late at night and laughed his butt off. He said that Malan is very weird in life as well.

and he lives in Long Island City (not that there's anything wrong with that, but it doesn't quite fit the image he's trying to create. From now on I'm going to call him The Continental.)

I actually liked the basket--I thought it was very Devo-esque!

I am so madly addicted to this show. We don't have cable, so I've spent the last few weeks gorging myself on seasons 1 and 2 on DVD and/or downloads from iTunes (at 2 bucks an episode! I can't help it! I'm addicted!)

Just watched the first ep of season 3, downloaded from iTunes (bonus: no commercials!).

Liked:
--Laura's coat
--Robert's cute red-bow dress
--Uli's gown (though we didn't get much of a chance to get a gander at it, did we?)

Hated:
--That Jeffrey guy and his raggedy ensemble...ugh!
--Malan's delivery of sentences like, "I prefer much...nicer fahbrics."
--Vincent's basket chapeau. (Also, he weirds me out a little, yet I also feel sorry for him. Cashing out your 401k? Dude! Stop it already! I fear he will crash and burn and end up wearing a sandwich board ad for a mattress company on a busy intersection or something. Poor guy.)

Lordy, I love Tim Gunn. I want to be his new best friend.

Hopefully he saved the hat. He can turn it back into a basket to collect spare change.

I have a soft spot for any of the NYC garmentos from the 80s-those were some high highs and low lows. I think Nina has a soft spot for him, too.
