On Project Runway, you always get an idea of who is going to win the challenge, and who is going to be Auf Wiedersehen. The judges always go crazy over a couple of the dresses, and then rip into someone else, There is just no JOY there…
In between these two contestants, there are a bunch of people who just get a pass. Heidi says something along the lines of, “You have enough points to make it to the next round.” They don’t get a lot of fanfare or attention, they are just moving along to the next round. I imagine that they are both relieved and disappointed.
