What a fun episode of Project Runway last night I squealed with delight when I heard Iman would be a guest judge. She is amazing. A DIVA. But where was the David?
My favorite, Nick, got the boot last week (boo-hoo!). Now there are only three left. Santino is annoying and conceited, but probably the most original of the remaining contestants. I like Chloe, but she always plays it way too safe (except for the dress made of leaves: wow!). My money is on Daniel to win.
Imagine doing a "Poetry Runway" show. Where the contestants are given a different challenge for a poem to write each week, then perform their new poem for a panel of famous poet judges. Each poem/poet gets critiqued on the spot by the panel, and each week one poet is eliminated. The winner gets money ($100k), a book deal with Knopf, six months of psychotherapy, and is named the "Poetry Runway Laureate" for a year. Now, wouldn't *that* be a fun show to watch?
