Andrea's room was such a cop-out. "The futuristic bits are on the outside - which you'll just have to use your imagination to see!"
My theory is that the judges' eyes were tired from the random over-accessorization of most of the other rooms, therefore strangely appreciative of Andrea's. Which looked like the outcome of challenge where you could only use things found On! Sale! at Pier One & Sherwin-Williams to me.After her earlier depressed statements about missing her children, I am thinking she's the one going home - unless the editors are trying to fool us.As always, Nathan is still attractive.
Oh TLo, you're not going all McDreamy/McSteamy on us, are you? Cutie McButt is fine, but I'm sure the other posters here can think of something hotter. Maybe I'll commit some brain cells to it. Nathan is the designer to beat.Loved the underwear screencap by the way.... And you're right about too much yet not enough in his pod.Ondine: Well I had to respect her after she described her not-so happy IKEA hunting as a 'clusterf*ck'. Focus, woman! You can do it! Plus, she was one answer away from immunity in pop design. I had to giggle tough, when Margaret said her fans reminded her of a NYC bus.Andrea is not only over her head, she's just plain out of puff. She's wearing thin like Theresa did, and I am afraid the Elves have clearly foreshadowed her dropping out of the competition tonight. By the way, how does one's husband even KNOW where to send flowers to without the producers having a hand in it? That smacks of shenanigans to me.

Plus, he's got that very attractive *competence* thing going on, and handles other people/situations with a little maturity.Not to get all enthused or anything, it is *just t.v.*Ah well, it's all in the eye of the beholder, and I am not much of a one for beefcake, however technically impressive.
Well formerlyanon, to each their own, I guess.And Ondine's Disease must be catching on, because I wrote as if Top Design was on TONIGHT, not TOMORROW NIGHT.Damn, this day can't go fast enough....
poor andrea, i too was ready to be over her & now not so much.for some reason i think its someone else going home, no ideas as to who.this post as always LMFAO!
BRING BACK MUSICAL MONDAYS!!!
c'est moi,It's good tastes vary, cuts down on the competition!& in the brain deterioration department: Should I be worried I spend more time on TLo blogs than watching the shows about which they blog??. . . naah!
I honestly thought Andrea was getting the loser edit last week with the whole I miss my family thing. That usually means goodbye. But it appears she won't be there much longer. Too bad, as I like her better now. She did lose the bitchiness and has just been pretty sad the past few episodes.I was worried for Ondine because she was freakin' losing it! Glad she'll still be around and I'm interested in what else she'll come up with.Nathan is the bomb. Loved his game show smarts! But I didn't think his room was the best this week. Did like the plates. He's still head and shoulders above most, though. Preston's room was just more cohesive as a whole. Looking forward to what both the cuties have to bring this week.
"We'd rather see her go out in a blaze of fuck-all-y'all glory than crumple up like a kleenex under the pressure."Don't tell me you're missing Kenley already!
I think when Andrea first got there, she wanted to hang out with the "cool and popular" kid and then realized that Eddie is a tool and not to be trusted.Her insecurity makes me so sad. It seems like every week she talks about her lack of formal training and experience. I truly don't know how she got on the show over other designers.

It's going to be between Eddie and Nathan and perhaps Preston. An all "girls" finale? I hope Nathans wins.
I got all the questions right on the Pop design. I might not be able to afford any of it, but I know a knock-off when I see it.
And wasn't Adler so cute about showing off his lamp?
Andrea's room and the pod slot?Think HORN & HARDART:The Automat, which hardly is futuristic, though I thought it was pretty majorly cool when I first went to one on a childhood visit to New York in the early 1960s.And Nathan? Rrarrooorrrr. He is my eye-candy for TD2, and he's wry without being obnoxious about it. I'll say it again, he channels Sean Connery for me. All the best,NDC
"Cutie McButt" made me giggle like a school girl.
Nathan's room was second place for me, but you two called it just right. Busy, yet not functional is a bad combo. He's still got the most design chops though. Ondine's pod and the bunker in a previous challenge just seem so depressing. She's trying to tell a story, but it's a depressing tale. I'm surprised too because I'd assume her SATC experience would give her design style some zip. And even when she does do something that pops, it doesn't have any life to it. I think Andrea leaves voluntarily this week and Ondine gets India'ed next week.And speaking of Andrea, her pod didn't look like the future and you're right about the wicker and the pink. She said she wanted to go girly but didn't follow through with that on anything but the paint color. Her food window reminded me of the replicator on Star Trek. I still want one of those.
Nathan and his underwear are plain adorable. Maybe his new name should be Mr. Asstastic! Or not.la la la laI sort of liked his plate wall and didn't think it was "too much". There needed to be more furniture though.Endive had some good ideas but really failed to express her ideas fully. Still, she's not as out of her element as Mrs. Ricky.I with y'all that she needs to get crazy with design and go out in a blaze of glory instead of the "I wanna go home and am taking myself out of the competition" that I think is coming.
Hmm, looks like a jock strap and his shirt tucked into it more so than underwear.
I'm holding out hope that Andrea stays and Eddie quits. I know I'm probably wrong, but this is how I'm fooling myself:Eddie, jerk though he is, appears to be cracking up more each week. It's in his face - he's started looking like a death mask. They show him saying "I'm over the judges." So he's ticked...again.The Elves are pretty masterful at showing a nasty judging comment, but a different contestant's reaction. So I don't think Simon's (LOVE him) "were you on acid" comment is directed at Nathan. Eddie perhaps?Last self-delusion...when Jonathan says "you can go home, you're a free person" (or whatever) he sounds pissed. I think he'd be a bit softer if it were Andrea melting down from missing her family - versus maybe Eddie showing his ass again. And not in a "oooh Nathan" kinda show-your-ass way.*sigh* Yeah, I know I'm probably wrong.
"And let's face it, Cutie McButt here is the man to beat. He just knows his shit." - why, oh why are all the HOT ones gay? oh well, i can still admire can't i? i agree that nathan IS the one to beat! he's very talented. (and nice eye candy, too.) Poor andrea is not handling this well. she actually commented that she was doing the pink room because she figured she was going home with this episode and she wanted to do a pink, girly room before she went. she's definitely homesick. i actually have really come to like her, but she's way over her head.

I agree - he seems pissed. But, maybe JA's just a cold SOB? I fear he'll fire her a la Trump just for being "weak". But really, why would they have totally given it all away in previews? I think Andrea is in and Ondine is out.
I think Eddie is going to be the one leaving. I think his arrogance will do him in and when he gets a hint he will be the one going, I think he's going throw a big ole hissy pretending he's so over the show! What a poser.I'm totally loving Nathan. He and Kelly have made this season for me!
Everytime I see Nathan, I think of you, Lorenzo. So cute with a cunning little smile.
Anonymous said... Hmm, looks like a jock strap and his shirt tucked into it more so than underwear.Um...sure, except for that fact that you can clearly see his shirt ending above his underwear. And that the pattern of the fabric beneath the waistband of his underwear is obviously different from the shirt...and that it's clearly attached to the waistband itself. Do you know what a jockstrap is? I'm guessing you're not a man.

Instant blast from the past. My parents, Northeasterners tho' not New Yorkers, made sure to take us as kids to Manhattan every 4 or 5 years, perhaps as atonement for the fact we lived in such places as Minnesota and North Carolina. (NOT cultural meccas in the mid-60's). Despite their best efforts (museums, the Village, delis both Jewish & Italian, Radio City, a ritualistic Broadway matinee - dang they were cooler than I realized at the time) EASILY the thing that most impressed me and which I remember most clearly of the earlier trips was The Automat!. I even remember what I ate & was wearing that day from the trip the year I was 7.food, clothes, presentationthe obsessions don't really change, do they?Thanks for indulging my nostalgic moment. . .
Oh boys, after recovering from my scatterbrain episode yesterday, I put some thought into a good name for Nathan. Okay, so I thought about it for like 15 min. on my bike ride into work today, but there's been a lot on my plate lately....Anyhoo, the moniker 'Cheeky Charming' came to mind. He can be bold in attitude without being mean and totally impudent. And hey, with cheeks like that he could be Prince Charming to a lot of people!Well, I tried, and even though the nickname isn't really smokin' hot, it was really hard to think of one. How do you guys do it from day to day?Even more appreciative of T & Lo!
I think there will be a "meltdown on asile 3" of Pier One, and TLo & Behold - it will be our Eddie! He cannot compete with the other Boys, and he cant sing.. So Long Eddie, Please pack your silver and Go!DebraKay
Let us pray that Eddie leaves. He's already said he doesn't need this, right? He's too good for us and can just go back to Martha. Go granny, go!
I wish Eddie would leave. He's getting worse every week.Andrea has the potential to be a good designer, and with a little training I think she could really take off. I agree, though, that she is over her head and I think the judges feel sorry for her, and are maybe trying to give her that training or something? I'm not sure why she hasn't left, unless it really is the Schroder thing.This whole thing is Nathan's to lose. Truly.
I'm sorry; I need to get all caps-y on you for just a second...WICKER IS NEVER OKAY!Thank you.I keep rooting for Nathan. I hope he wins, but I'm a little afraid he's being set up for a big fall.Mrs. Silver Spoons needs to go, as much as I want her to stay. I like watching her on television, but her design aesthetic is so... soccer mom-edgy. Like, maybe Pepto Pink and zebra is wild for the L.A. suburbs, but in a design competition? Not so much.
Okay, I think it's time for the Celebrity Deathmatch between Kenley and Eddie for the biggest ego on display. Eddie seems to have picked up right where the editors left off with Kenley. Ugh!
Okay, I know this is a big bitch-fest and everybody but me was probably laughing, but did anybody feel sorry for Andrea last night right up until the point where she turned around and said, "What do you think Ondine?" The look on Ondine's face was just priceless. "I think you should drop dead, you uber-shiksa bitch."I think Andrea made the right decision though. I don't think she expected to get this far and be away from her kids this long, and that really does take a toll on people who actually like their kids.
"Anne said... Okay, I know this is a big bitch-fest and everybody but me was probably laughing, but did anybody feel sorry for Andrea last night right up until the point where she turned around and said, "What do you think Ondine?""I have been feeling sorry for Andrea all along, she is obviously tremendously insecure and if she gets any business out of being on this show, I will be amazed. But, last night she got on my last nerve. She was so unbelievably insecure that I wanted to smack her. When she turned to Odine and asked her opinion, she lost all my sympathy.I think it was beyond the bounds of reason that the judges gave her the ultimate decision as to whether she or Ondine went home. That was totally unforgiveable.
You know what? I'm starting to agree with Eddie. I think these judges are a little off. They keep selecting Preston and his designs are hotel rooms! There are no personal touches at all. The way Jonathan Adler's spouse focused on Andrea's shell & flowers on the coffee table to form his entire opinion - really? The spoiled girl in Nathan's room shouldn't have the chess set. Again, not looking at overall design. What I dislike most about the show is the design interview that the judges do with the designers. I think the questions are stupid and I would much rather hear the designers give a step by step voiceover of why they selected each piece and placed it where they did. The designers are so nervous and obviously are trying to please with their answers. Finally, what in the heck is the point of asking a designer "What would you do differently?" which sounds like "Where did you mess up?" to me.
