I guess Ven turned lots of us off who'd previously been fans. Although I'm watching it and enjoying it, no one's got the personality that Mondo and Michael did a few seasons ago. But did anyone else see Mondo as a judge/advisor in the episode where they selected the ones that would be on TV? I thought that was cool. I forget-who was the one this season who was the free-gan? Does anyone remember?

Ven -- what a piece of work. I cannot stand him. I'm rooting for Dimitri and Melissa.
I agree!

I'm pretty sure it's Fabio. I really like him, too. Dmitri is my favorite, and I feel so bad for him because he does great work, and is always just safe! I am also rooting for Melissa. Ven is such a big jerk, and has a very high opinion of himself.

How is Elena a fan favorite???

Well the tide has turned for me after Ven's unprofessionalism on the dress my friend episode and Gunnar was actually very sweet to his model. Glad Gunnar wasn't voted off last week.

I know!!! Who the heck is voting for her??? She's a uber-b(word)!!!!

I would not be happy working on a team with her. She should have gone home on piss poor attatude alone this week.

Christopher compairing her and Dmitri to Boris and Natasha from Rocky and Bullwinkle was hysterical.

I am watching. I am hoping Ven gets voted off but probably will not happen. At least they all can sew.

I like Dmitri and Christopher. Can't stand Ven -- who treats a client that way! And Elena needs to get over herself.

I also would like to know who is voting for Elena as fan favorite. If she acts like that in real life she can't have that many friends. I was really hoping that she would go last week. Looking forward to this weeks show.

I am so afraid that Elena will not be voted off when her time comes because she really brings the drama, and because she is fan favorite. The Boris and Natasha thing killed me, too. Chris can be so funny!

Ven is really starting to get on my last nerve. He is predictably nasty now, and I cringe whenever they let him talk, especially on the runway. But again, he brings the drama. Or at least the uncomfortable cringe-worthy moments.

Did Heidi have her nose done? Her face looks different to me...

I also thought that Heidi had some work done. When the show started I looked at her and thought something is different.

Ven doesn't bother me. There's been plenty of designers who only design for the 'runway'. Working with the public isn't his thing. I like his designs though.

I too can't understand how Elena can be fan favorite! I had to rewind to make sure I read that right. I guess they are getting the drama from her. What she's done s far is bad. And I'm so sick of her whinning about how the judges aren't 'getting' her designs. Um, it's cause they are bad or not finished or just not as good as the rest!

Another thing that bugs me is when Sonjia wears that fabric on her head tied in a knot. Who does that? She seriously walks around like that?

I hate that Elena is the fan favorite because it just proves to the producers that the way to go is to cast horrible human beings.

The dress my friend episode showed a really unpleasant side of Ven. He may be capable of some cool stuff and a great constructionist, but the truth that he's not really interested in what people want or how they would be able to wear something has been revealed. This last dress showed he's not particularly creative either. I'm sure he's a bit more than the one trick pony he's shown himself to be, but he needs to grow more as a person before he can take his skills to the next level.

I guessed early on in the episode that he was leaving when they showed him helping Melissa. He's probably a bit nicer and not as self absorbed as we've seen on the show & I figured they edited his exit episode to show that a little bit before flinging him off.
