Wouldn't it be more challenging to play Let's Spot the Straight?? There's a pretty broad spectrum of gay up there.


Who do you think is going to hate us and send all their friends here to call us fat?

Jillian.

I already question her judgment. A sweater dress is a fashion must have?? Honey, please.


Hmmm, I think they are all gay, except Christian.


All I know is that Rami is hotness.


"Bravo announced the Season 4 contestants. Let's play Spot The Gay!"


ROFL. Lots of hotties!! And lots of trouble. I can smell it. Fabulous!


My world is collapsing on itself! I actually have met and have friends in common with a designer on PR!

It's Jack, and he's the sweetest.


LaFemmeFataledeNY

Time to start the show, darlings! Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy ride.


All the boys and maybe sweet p ;)


Awesome! I can't wait!! I read their bios and it looks like they're very talented.


Honey, Rami, dear...


Oh you shallow people. It's about their talent, NOT their looks (as I drool over Rami, Steven, Jack, Kevin...)


Steven was one of the designers that tired out for S3 and didn't make it! I remember him because I dubbed him the "Creepy One". GREAT.

Ricky = S2's Raymundo. It took me a second to realize it was a different person.


VICTORYA ROCKS!!! Guys, she's so cool. I'm rooting for you, girl.


I met Steven once at a party. He's a doll. Didn't he try last year?


Sweet P looks like Julianne Moore in that picture.

My thoughts, exactly!

I was just thinking the same thing! I was trying to remember the names so I could post them in my comment, and then I just gave up! Are any of the guys straight?

I couldn't tell about the women, but I tend to be notoriously bad at that.

My thinking precisely! And bring them on, babies, anyone who sends their friends here to call you fat will run up against the Wall o' Love we all got for our TLo!


NObody better call our gayboys fat!!!

Rami is tre hawtness, I agree.


Some of them are already established designers. Why would Bravo do that? There are so many hungry, talented designers out there. Why not give them a chance?


Oh, and Rami, you'd be eaten alive here in Germany. LOL.

They are getting publicity and exposure they would never get on their own.


I don't trust anybody who says about themself that they have an adorable sense of whimsy. People like that tend to cross over the line into "precious" waaaaay too frequently.

Maybe they're picking people with established lines (albeit in infancy) so they don't run into the Jay problem again, getting someone with no business sense that makes the program look bad by imploding.

Anne


This is gonna be great!

-- desertwind

PS -- Just because somebody has named a line for themselves doesn't mean they're not "hungry".


PPS -- I just realized... Christian looks just like the roadrunner that chased me off my porch yesterday!

But look at Jeffrey, for example. He had a line (and according to him, many famous clients) before the show and what has he done now? Nothing.

It's interesting to see some of the aufed ones making a name for themselves quicker than the winners.

ROFL.


Jack is HOT. Check out this picture.
Sigh.

I hope we see a lot of fashion, not just drama.


ALL the guys look gay. That's not possible, is it? Mind you, my gaydar isn't very good.


YAY! About fucking time!!


Bettie said...

Sigh.

Oh My. I mean OH MY. Perhaps rather than saying "too bad he's gay" I could just say "too bad I'm not an available gay male swimmer in New York?"

I love my husband, I love my husband, I love my husband... (wipe drool from chin)

AES


I think they're all gay, and like the village people each represent a different stereotype. You've got Chris, the velvet-upholstered gay, you've got Christian, trendy emo gay, Jack, Norwich Terrier-sweater gay, Kevin, Folsom st. gay, Marion (MARION!?), Oliver Twist gay (I'm not sure that's a stereotype, but I'd enjoy giving him some more) Rami, Sleazy club gay, Ricky, Sleazy DJ gay, and Steven, who was most recently seen on Sean Cody.


Does anyone else think that Simone looks like a tranny in this picture?


I am so excited about season four. All of the designers are awesome. Let's get going!


I think Jack had a really sweet way about him .... his video was really interesting. Sometimes people that handsome are full of themselves but I thought he seemed quite thoughtful. I also think Christian is adorable - great sense of style. I can't wait for the show to start.


Wow, Sweet P looks about 15 years younger than she actually is. And for whatever reason, I really like her answer for "fashion must have": A dress. Of course!

And Kit looks harsh! I would have guessed she's much older than 26.

Will Simone be the most Angela-esque of the new season?


I think Christian has anything but a great sense of style. I swear, you could pick up anything in his emsemble from Urban Outfitters (not that Urban Outfitters totally sucks, but they're not exactly cutting edge, sophisicated looks. They're every big trend the season after it appears on runways).

I like Sweet P's style; it's not exactly the most original, but it's cute and it works for her.


I love Elisa. She's fabulous!


It's nice to see several contestants over the age of 30 participating. Hope they last long.


They're way too established to be on the show. I hope they all checked their ego at the door.


Mariana (The unoriginal)

See, I kind of like that. Instead of having a bunch of macaroni art type of designers creating stupid things like Vincent did. I look forward to seeing real fashion, real designs on the show.

Seriously.


Oh dear jesus, why do we want clothing from people who can't dress themselves worth a whit? Or style themselves at all? That whole page screams of poseur pseudohipster ego. Ugh.


Boys, time to stock up on bitch pills. I can't wait for your posts about S4!


THE gay? that's alot of responsibility...being THE gay.


I agree all the men seem gay, but I did a little sleuthing and discovered Kevin's myspace page, on which he claims to be straight and in a relationship. He's pretty hot, but his myspace photo is eerily Santino-esque.

I think both Simone and Elisha look like trannies. Must be the square jaws and overdone lipstick.

LMFAO!!


I'm so excited! I can't wait to watch the show. I'm quite impressed with their bios.


All I know is TLo is gonna have a freakin FIELD DAY with this bunch.

And why does all the good stuff happen when I'm at work??


I remember Steven from season 3. I like Kevin. Not what I was expecting at all.


I think, in general, they all seem fairly interesting. Jack Mackenroth is rediculously handsome....I have a cousin that swims with him and so I saw him at a swim meet - wow. I mean swim meat....if you know what I'm talking about.


Oh yea. You guys are fat.


I hope Jack stays around for awhile. He shore is purty to look at!


The contestant I'm most excited about is Carmen, because of her background in achitecture.


I found Victorya's label's website.

http://nabeny.com/

She likes primary colors. Her simple lines remind me a of chloe, but the color sense is totally different. Like some, hate others.


Hmm. They all look flaky to me. Maybe its just the cheesy head shots. I do remember Jillian from the auditions (for S3, I think?) and she seemed a little nuts, so maybe this is worth the interminable wait.


Rami is gorgeous and a sweet guy. He's also a fantastic designer.


Christian is a perky little thing, isn't she? LOVE HER!


Where's the crazy?
Where's the mean?
Is season 4 going to be like watching paint dry??
20 bucks says Kit is going home first....*meep*
Betcha Rami is a wolf in sheeps clothing....don't screw with an Israeli- they'll f you up!
Kevin is My People so I automatically have to root for him- he has that normal person, "Ben from Shear Genius" personality too.

Something tells me Carmen is going to be fierce. She studied architecture like Laura. Those people always seem to be so meticulous and that was the thing that always impressed me about Ms Bennett. My best friend is obsessed with how her stuff fit.....like it was SO EXACTLY PERFECT.

It seems like Jack has that Robert Best-ish kind of personality.

I am thinking Chris is going to be the most fun.

Several boring personalities though, or so it seems....I guess we shall see....IF THE DAMN THING EVER AIRS FOR FUCKS SAKE!!


Don't you mean play spot the straight, hahaha?


"Suzanne said...

yes!! oh my god you're right. lol.


All the dudes and half the bitches.


The new designers seems like a really interesting cast of characters - and cute too.


Based solely on their photos -- I have not watched most of the videos -- I would say that every one of those boys is g-g-g-gay. At least, I hope they are ... I have to get my RDF (that's recommended daily fag) somehow!


I can tell I'll love Chris, 'cause he looks like a fabulous sort of guy, and that I'll hate "Sweet P", because she's trying way to hard with the whole name thing.


Kevin reminds me of Kevin Johnn from Season 1. What do I win for spotting the straight? Everyone of the other fellas-- Gay. Except Rami who a dead ringer for the owner of Club Persh from South Park.

Emma P.

Totally crushing on Jack, he's every hag's dream gay boyfriend.


Just cuz it must be said, sure spot the homo is nice, but how come PRCanada is so ethnically diverse and ours has the token black and asian?


they all look gay. And the women (except maybe the last one) all remind me of drag queens.


" Anonymous said...

I disagree. There's the latin guy, the asian girl, the black girl, the white ones... What else did you want? An aborigine?


Why did Bravo suddenly dump the mother lode of designers on us now? That seems odd, to have rolled out 4 designers individually and then abruptly go en masse. It's almost like they threw up their hands and said, "Oh, screw it, let's just clear out the tape bin now so we don't have to keep track of who we've already introduced."

As for Jack, he's pretty, but so far he's no Robert, Kayne, Nick or Andrae for me. They're beautiful on the inside, too!


I think I love me some Kevin! Thank you very much!


Dear Cyndi Lauper,

Honey.

Did the phone ring in the middle of a mid-life crisis?

I'd fire your publicist.


There's only ONE gay?? This show has sooooo gone downhill.

Which one's gonna send their friends here? Well we know Sweet P has already started, so that's a natch. And her pal Peanut likely already gave her the 411 on how to do a campaign; sending fake posters to the blogs, to make it seem like they've got supporters. But hopefully the ones who play those games get tossed early.

Looks like she'll be the Alison of this season--world traveler, trendy downtown style,etc.

I am pretty over that style of dress at this point, it's just so DONE.

Alexis


OK, did anyone else notice that Rami's hometown is listed as Ramallah, Jerusalem instead of Ramallah, Israel? I'm troubled that no one at Bravo seems to understand that Jerusalem and Ramallah two entirely separate cities.


FashionFanatic

I liked Elisa's video. She's hip, trendy; she seems to know what she's talking about. Her video reminded me of Cynthia Rowley and her story about being "discovered" on the subway; this woman approached her and asked about her dress. She sold the dress to the woman and the rest is fashion history.


FashionFanatic

I’m big fan of Rami Kashou and love his collections. They're always full of rich textures, bright colors and sensuous body-hugging evening gowns.

Here's a YouTube video of his Fall 2007 collection:

"PinkPrincess said...

Yup! I'm curious to see how many flower, garbage challenges they had to go through and how they reacted to them.


Jack and Rami: HOT HOT HOT!


I'm glad the show is back. It's been forever!


It's all gay from here!


Great cast! Ricky is my favorite.


Rami's so frikking HOT:) Check out this picture. He's GORGEOUS!!


Victorya's video almost put me to sleep. Kevin is cool. Elisa rocks. Jack is hot. And who comes up with names like "sweet p" or "kit."


I can't wait for season four!! I hate Top Chef, Top Design sucked, TGGTS sucks...I NEED MY PROJECT RUNWAY!


My prediction for the final three includes Kevin, Christian and Victorya. Just a feeling, folks, nothing else.


Oh wait, there's also Rami. Final four, then.


Some of these designers have already shown their collection at Bryant Park. So, what's in for them? One hundred thousand bucks? I find it hard to believe, don't you think?


Christian seems like this season’s Austin Scarlett: flamboyant, way too self-conscious, and probably designs drag-queen clothes for women.


I think Christian is so cute and I know from friends that
he has mad talent.


Overall, the designers have some great experience. I think this is going to be a good season.


um, uh, any more pics of jack in a swim suit?


Also - ELISA - seems like a dark horse.

you heard it here first people


I just think Jack is the sweetest....yes, he is cute but he must be smart and talented ..Berkley and Parsons..???? Okay, and he's handsome. But so is Kevin. YUMMIE.


I still remember Steven humping the bed (or was it the floor?) in his bio video from last year.


Elisa is a great artist and a phenomenal designer. We all love her here in Texas.


Seattle loves Jack. You better work boy.


Oh...in the http://nabeny.com/

the model for her 08 collection is written Lesley Williams in the 'credit' in the website.

and I think that is the lesley ann williams in Project runway season 2 who modeled for Diana Eng! I look at her awhile and kinda can tell.

She has a new look I think.


Keep your eye out for Rami Kashou! Jerusalem born (NOT BORN IN ISRAEL), grew up as the son of an eclectic and fashionable mother and was often asked by the local town socialites to design their ensembles. With a background of retail, buying and merchandising experience, Rami launched his own line in 2000 and has draped the silhouettes of celebrities and trendsetters such as Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Lopez, Portia De Rossi, Fergie, Amy Smart, Lucy Liu, Melanie Brown, Erikah Badu, Tracee Ellis Ross and Shiva Rose. His designs have been seen on the pages of In Style, Flaunt, Angelino, Interview, People and Us Weekly just to name a few. Rami was also asked to design the costumes for the March 2005 America ’s Next Top Model ad campaign which graced billboards across the nation.

HE'S THE BEST!!!!


I am kind of disappointed that Pratt is not represented.


Elisa is a great designer. Her clothes are brilliant examples of how art and fashion can converge. I love her stuff!!


" Sewing Siren said...

I agree. It's always Parsons, Parsons...

Um, Jerusalem IS in Israel.

"Let's play Spot The Gay!"

Only ONE?

And she lists Erte as a designer she admires. The puts me solidly in her corner before the show starts


I have hearted Jack since he was a wee comment poster on BPR!!! ;)

Go Jack!!! XXOO


This comment has been removed by the author.

I love Jack, Christian, Kevin and Kit.


Why is everyone pushing Rami?

overkill.

I say - first to go.

Too arrogant.


Yup! I'm curious to see how many flower, garbage challenges they had to go through and how they reacted to them.

I was kind of hoping that the experience level and general raising of the bar meant that we'd get a break from that gimmicky crap. I just hate it.

It's like on Top Chef when they're like, "Come up with something using the items in this vending machine." Why? It was the chicken, onion & potato challenge that separated the wheat from the chaff.

I like the challenges that show the designers' ability to be inspired by normal things, to create something beautiful on a budget, to dress different body types and styles... I lose interest the minute they have to go comb the recycling bin or the loft they're staying in.

Anne


Totally agree, Anne (BTW, I hope you got your monopoly money prize by now. I sent it via owl.)


Rami, Rami, Rami, Rami...


I think Jack rocks. Well, at least he seems cool and fairly humble for being such a stud.


Is it just me, or is this season's crop skewing much older?


Ew...Steven from Chicago...one of the rejects shown in the casting process last season with the creepy "and the magic also sometimes happens here (lying on bed)...and sometimes...here (lying on floor)"


I've seen some of Rami's work....I can't wait to see what he does during the season. He's an excellent designer.


yeah right, they all look gay.


From what I know about Rami is that he has a wonderful talent. He is extremely sweet and has mad passion for design.. he is still one tough cookie and takes pride in his work. Also Kit is one of the sweetest and most fun people to be around. She is very creative and grounded. Those two are talanted and are full of iriginality. I wish them both the bes on the show! besides them I am also rooting for Christian.. I have yet to see from him though.


Valley girl, Jack. So cute!


Kevin is HOT!


For the record, I don't know if anyone cares, but it would be far more proper to say "Ramallah, Palestine," than either "Ramallah, Jerusalem" or "Ramallah, Israel."


tomassocroccante

I like Rami more every minue he's on screen - he's not only clearly a very decent guy, but he's one of the hottest men on TV right now. (The two go together, certainly)

By the way, someone above asked "What kind of name is Kit?"
It's a not too uncommon nickname for Katherine.
