TFS: Team Merlin

Merlin says, 'Let's get to it, chicas!"



"A lot of people ask me, 'Is Merlin is your real name?"

Of all the possible questions that come into mind upon encountering Merlin, we can't imagine THAT one would get asked all that much.

Oh, and by the way...38? Honey. How stupid do we look? Next thing you'll be telling us about your wife and kids back home.


On the one hand, he's witty and colorful and definitely among the top in terms of talent.


On the other hand, tiny little feathered queens with compensation issues have a VERY short lifespan before we need to resist the urge to clip their little wings. We'll see how long we can go before screaming at our TV. It'll be like an endurance test! Like waterboarding, except more painful.


Merlin, Lidia, Daniella, James-Paul, Angel -- together, they fight crime!


It's weird what these teams came up with as "must haves." A bolero jacket is such a specific look that only looks good paired with a limited number of items on a limited number of body types. Still, it at least made more sense than Hammer pants and tube skirts.


As for the tiny Honduran peacock, he may just have been one of the worst team leaders we've ever seen on a reality competition, but loathe as we are to admit it, he was right.


Although THAT was way out of line. At lease Daniella got a killer comeback out of it. "Male? Where?"


But she should probably quit while she's ahead, because even though she looks like she could be an entertaining bitch, there's just no winning going up against a masterful shade-throwing queen. We look forward to a season of these two baring their claws at each other.


Thing is, like we said, Merlin was right. Those boleros looked TIRED.


Sure, he could have been a little more diplomatic about it but let's face it: it's all about camera time.


And she's playing the game just as much as he is. He may have been too nasty to her but she was wrong and he was right.


Although we're not sure it's such a hot idea to criticize her dress sense when he's running around in one of Pat Nixon's old coats paired with one of Hedda Hopper's old hats.

Let's check out the results, shall we?


Angel


The blouse is okay, if a little out of proportion to the jacket. The skirt looks interesting from a conceptual POV, but it doesn't look all that well executed. Overall, it's kinda blah.


Daniella




Credit where it's due: this is a little more youthful than the other looks and it's styled well. The pants could have been executed better, though. The fit is pretty bad.


Lidia


NO. Awful. The fabric for that blouse is ugly and the blouse is TOTALLY out of proportion to the jacket. You can barely tell she's wearing a jacket at all. The skirt is clumsy and ugly.


Merlin




And for all his drama and nastiness, he left no doubt that he's definitely among the better designers in the group. We're not a fan of bubble skirts, let alone pleated ones, but the look is pretty damn fab. Love the detail at the collar. The flower might just be a bit much, though.


How anyone can stand there in a chicken costume and call a perfectly fine dress "eccentric" is beyond us, but El Pollo Loco here managed to do it with a, you'll pardon the term, "straight" face.


"And how can anyone hate me? Look at me! I am an outrageous, fabulous, chicken diva!"


Oh, honey. You went up against a vicious, birdlike queen who knows how to pull the spotlight on herself and lost. Let that be a life lesson for you.

BWAAHAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!! Not one of Merlin's better outfits.

And El Pollo Loco does sum up Merlin, doesn't it?


Thank you! I too was like, "38?! More like 48!" Not that it matters, but...yeah.

I too had to agree with Merlin (although I didn't find him to be as irritatingly bitchy as others seemed to) - those boleros WERE dated and crappy looking before he cut the shit out of his. It's the first challenge and he's the team leader - I don't really blame him for ignoring the bossy 22-year-old (who doesn't dress like she's 40...she dresses like a Golden Girl in mourning), although yeah, the "male domination" thing was unnecessary. Kudos (or ka-dooz, as Ramona from Real Housewives NYC would say, lol) to Danielle for her hilarious comeback.

I didn't like that the winner had to come from the winning team and the loser had to come from the losing team. Lidia clearly had the fugliest thing out there, but she gets a pass 'cause she lucked out and got on the 'good' team? Seems unfair.


"El Pollo Loco"

Oh. MY. GOD.

ROFLMAO

That was SO funny.


PS I totally thought Merlin's dress was the best and he should have won. It was detailed, involved, unique, and constructed wonderfully. I liked John-Paul's but it seemed way too much like a witch costume for me to really love it.


"El Pollo Loco"
You just made me cry with laughter!


Pat Nixon. Snort.

Merlin struck me as a mash-up of Puck from The Real World SF and Uncle Nick. Even as a Birki-sporting fembot I couldn't get my knickers in a twist about the Male domination thing. He really seemed to just be playing the game. It helped that he's hilarious and Daniella is...not.

chicken costume. snicker.

You're righ Bailey, John-Paul's was the witch and El Pollo Loco's was Snow White


I think we should call him El Chapulin Colorado.... google it up and you'll get it.


I said it before and I'll say it again:

I LIKE HIM!

Looks like John Leguizamo, talks like Fez, and dresses like Chi Chi Rodriguez married Woody Woodpecker.

And even if his comments were jerky, it wasn't maliscious. Plus, he make them to an even bigger jerk. (Yeah, I got that chick figured out.)

And loved the outfit. Those bouffant blouses had to GO.

And for all of her bitch talk, Daniella didn't exactly create something so hot herself.

So in conclusion, Merlin's okay with me. Just hope he dosen't take a Jeffrey or Santino dick move.


"El Pollo Loco"

Hahahahahahahahhaha.


That's ALL I fucking care about. YOUR posts, Tlo!


Can't wait for the impending smack talk that Miss Merlin will be having with Lorenzo.

We'll require pics, please.


Mariana (The Unoriginal)

CHICKEN!! LOVE HIM!!!

LATINOS REPRESENTADOS!!!!


Tlo, I can't stop laughing. That is hilarious!

I HATE Daniella already. Did you guys see her fighting with Reco in the preview?


By the way, I think the new format has inspired you guys to write more. Three posts a day? I'm loving it.


"Anonymous said...

LOL.


The on-screen graphic says "Custom Designer," but I have a feeling he was really telling the interviewer "I am costume designer!"


Is it just me, or does Daniella look like Boy George, in his 'Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?' period?


Lidia's blouse- for the woman who wants to wear pool floats.

Although Pollo Loco's blouse had gorge details, the jester skirt (shorts?)- uh, ugh.


Angel- The blouse looks good with the bolero, but the skirt is way too conservative. A long hobble type skirt would have been a good counter point to Merlin's bubble mini (and fresher).
Daniella- Argue with Merlin til the cows come home, but your outfit is ugly.
Lidia- Is she the one that can't sew?
Merlin-He knows what he is doing.


merlin's dress looked like a jester costume! you two have gone temporarily blind.


Merlin's first outfit clarified for me what it would look like if Dorothy came across a pimp instead of a scarecrow along the yellow brick road.


"I didn't like that the winner had to come from the winning team and the loser had to come from the losing team. Lidia clearly had the fugliest thing out there, but she gets a pass 'cause she lucked out and got on the 'good' team? Seems unfair."


Agreed. And we don't get to see the judges critiquing the other winner outfits. Heck, we don't even see them again.


"On the other hand, tiny little feathered queens with compensation issues have a VERY short lifespan before we need to resist the urge to clip their little wings. We'll see how long we can go before screaming at our TV. It'll be like an endurance test! Like waterboarding, except more painful."

Honey, we've endured an entire season of Princess Puffysleeves. Merlin will be a cakewalk.


Daniela was behaving like a bitch but you might at least chalk part it up to being immature. although she easily could be a totally that way by nature

Regardless of his talent and I do like what he can produce, Merlin by his own admission did not give a rat's ass about the challenge since he was safe from elimination. He didn't bother caring about the output until halfway through. While his changes were good ones, his ideas should have been put on the table the first night during the planning stage. His actions could have very well put them in the losing group.

If I had been on his team I would have been majorly pissed at his attitude

Frank


While I agree with everyone that Merlin's outfit was the best, please remember people, unlike Project Runway, the object to the Fashion Show is to make easy to SELL outfits. Merlin's had TOO MUCH detail! Like Jay's fabulous Chrysler dress!!!!!

And as far that the person who made this comment:

"Looks like John Leguizamo, talks like Fez, and dresses like Chi Chi Rodriguez married Woody Woodpecker."

ROTFLOL!!!!!


I think Merlin has the best model. The rest of the girls suck at walking.


Merlin is trying to go down the "ooh, I'm eccentric! I'm a bitch! I'm fabulous!" route...which is all fine & dandy, but you can only get away with that if you are STUPENDOUSLY, jaw-droppingly, stunningly talented...otherwise it's a quick 15 minutes of fame and then see ya, it's been real, and back to obscurity...see Rice, Santino for a fine example. And dressing in a collection of rank hats and capes doesn't make you an arbiter of style, or avant-garde, just makes you look look a bit of a twerp. Yeah and if he's 38 that would make me a fresh-faced 24 with an 18" waist, instead of a middle-aged fat girl. Just sayin'.


I vote for "El Pollo Loco" to be Merlin's nickname for the rest of the season. Go Team EPL!


Yeah, Merlin made a bitchy comment but then Daniella made a bitchy comment back at him so they were even. She had no right to bring it up again later. It's like she wants to sue him for sexual harassment or something.

At first I thought Merlin was trying to use personality to make up for a lack of talent but that is clearly not the case. I loved his outfits for both challenges this week.


I vote for "El Pollo Loco" to be Merlin's nickname for the rest of the season. Go Team EPL!ITA, Totally stealing that.

thanks so much!!!! I have watched that show (and el Chavo del Ocho) when I was a kid and that was the first thought that came to my mind when I saw Merlin, I'm so glad somebody else got the same reference!!! :-)

anyway, he is good TV, no doubt, and his outfit was really good, but his persona is way too much, I can't stand him! and really, 38? I didn't catch that before, that's hilarious!!!


Isn't that Shannon from MMSM in Lidia's concoction? Looks like her anyways...

The thing I'm concerned about is if the fact that Bravo will be selling the winning look will seriously taint the judging. I think Merlin's outfit was better, but James-Paul's was much more marketable and look who won?


hahahahhahahaha!!!!
Chicken Diva!!!!

I love you guys!!

(BTW, I noticed in the previews for the season that there's not too much Merlin.That might not be good..boooo)


Daniella. Girl. Uh. "I just graduated from SCHOOL and I know EVERYTHING!"


I was touched by Merlin dressing up as my grandmother's old sofa, complete with afghan.


I have gotten past the pain threshold and am already screaming at the TV because of Chicken Diva.

Look - he was right about the jackets but I dont agree that the Bolero is a Must Have. I was thinking more fitted jacket.

That said - Merlin's creation was a darn sight better than the rest. Which were awful.

Danielle for all her bitching, really didn't bring it. She's gotta step up. Props on the great come back.

As for the "male domination" then "bitches rule the world" thing the Chicken Gay had going on? Oh please - she's channeling Suede....with the Bitchy cranked way high. I can see Merlin is talented but the hackery is wearing very thin already.

I think Merlin is hilarious!


"Anonymous said...

LOL. That outfit is HIDEOUS.


Daniella goes on and on about being 22 but she does dress very conservatively. Age has nothing to do with it.


El Pollo Loco

Straberry Shortcake


LOL Keep them coming, boys. Sigh. It reminds me of the good old days of PR.


MERLIN ROCKS!!!

I love him ever since he appeared on The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency show.


Oh, TLo, I adore you. I don't know which line made me laugh harder: Pat Nixon or chicken costume. You are in top form today!

MWAH!!


Merlin's look came down the runway and my partner and I both yelled.

"AAHHH!! It's Jubilee Jumbles!" at

at the screen.


I can't stand him. He needs to go. NOW!


Um, Merlin did not design a bubble skirt, those are shorts...actually those are Elizabethan pantaloons, see here:

Merlin in his chicken costume. HA! You guys slay me.

I can't believe you didn't do a screen cap of Merlin when LeMiz gives his Mr Brady speech about instructing your team with tact and he says, "yes, I know that".


One of my favorite moments from the show was when Merlin's group was discussing their design and his feather kept wacking Danielle in the face. Classic reality TV. They were destined to hate each other!


chicken costume! snort.


Boobsy and I were just saying yesterday that we couldn't beleive you had discussed Merlin that much. That guy has mockery written all over him! I almost bust a gut when he said "Male domination." Sheesh!

He adds such flair to the show, but I give it about 2 more episodes before I am praying for him to get kicked off.


another laura

I thought the judges picked the right outfit. El Pollo Loco's dress was too, well, too much. Too short, too much trim, too pleated. Can't wait until somebody trims that feather off his hat. And guys, no comment about that hideous tractor cap he wore around the workroom? scary fug.


LOL!

And those orginal jackets Daniella " I just graduated and I'm younger therefore I know more" came up with looked like a cropped blazer that you would find on the sale rack in Talbots :|

Merlin may have been tackless but like you guys said he was right.

Did anyone catch "Rico" not understaing how "hammer pants" were a staple? He should have spoken up


"El Pollo Loco" is catchier, but my vote is for "the tiny Honduran peacock"

OMG. I laughed out loud at work. (they're used to me, thank god)

I disliked his outfit - why would a grown woman want to wear something that looks like a 4-yr-old's rompers with great-grandma's fabric flower attached? - but it fit, it was well made, it showed that he's capable.

I'm waiting for another contestant to be caught on camera stabbing him with one of his own stiletto heels.


I'm already bored with him - Reality Show contestant who will do anything bitchy to set himself apart and get air time - YAWN.


In response to Merlin, my boyfriend walked in the room and said, "I give him credit for not spelling his name with a y."


These posts are why I watch these silly shows. FAB. Nothing to add, except that I thought the right person won (but the wrong person lost).


I love how we're getting multiple posts for TFS from TLo!
Sooo happy :)


OMG...the Pat Nixon reference was priceless!!!!
AND, I agree with many that Merlin should from hence forward be known officially as "El Pollo Loco"!
Sqwaaaaaakk!!!!


On a separate note, did anyone notice Lidia's model? Isn't she Shannon from the first season of Make Me a Supermodel??? I know Merlin stole all the spotlight this round, but I totally noticed her. Am I right, though? 'Cause I can't find evidence to confirm or deny it was Shannon.

"Tlo said: El Pollo Loco"

--GothamTomato

Gotham, I join you in bended knee (and with arthritis,that's no mean feat) in front of TLO. And then the Pat Nixon/Hedda Hopper reference completely nailed it for me!


I've watched the episode twice now and never noticed where they said the three mini-challenge winners had immunity. Of course, that may be because I was plugging my ears against that judge from the magazine.

El Pollo Loco truly did not bother me. Yes, he's playing to the camera but he hasn't (yet) overplayed. As for Daniella, puh-lease. So out of her league in the bitch competition.

And is it just me or has anyone else's "straight-dar" failed to go off at all with this show? Not that there's anything wrong with that. Just wondering.


"Although we're not sure it's such a hot idea to criticize her dress sense when he's running around in one of Pat Nixon's old coats paired with one of Hedda Hopper's old hats."

LMFAO!!!!


Pat Nixon + Hedda Hopper = PRICELESS!


Oh my god that does look like a chicken costume. LOL.
He will be very entertaining and annoying at the same time. You know he'll last a long time.


El Pollo Loco

Perfect! A new moniker for the lawn jockey. I suspect we might have a new name for him every week!


"Merlin, Lidia, Daniella, James-Paul, Angel -- together, they fight crime!"


Hahaha. Could they be more different?


Not a fan of El Pollo Loco (although I did LOL for real when I read that name!!!). The gimmick is tiring and as awful as it is, his constant need to be whitty coupled with his consistant butchering of the English language irks me. Yes I realize its not his first language (I've been there, you're not gonna be as whitty in your first language as in your second) but he is so far from charming that the mistakes are not cute, they just grate at my nerves. Even the judges were correcting him! The italian guy from last season's Top Chef, Fabio I think, was charming even though he killed many a phrase lol. Lets not even get started on Merlin's voice, ugh. I was hoping he would be all gimmick and no talent, sadly this is not the case.


Merlin's outfit was pretty well made unlike most others. But he got really lucky getting one of the best looking models with great legs. If her legs were any worse his dress would not look so good.

Also this is a stupid idea to select a winner and a loser from a winning and a losing teams. They should have used the overall scores. Who was liked the most and the least getting a win or get outed. Also in this case there is not much use of a panel of judges, b/c format was just awful. Judges getting out of their really high chairs and walking out did not look right. The judging happens during the final show. Kelly and Isaak should just announce results with some comments and be done.

Did anyone understand the rules? Did designers get models' sizes when they created their outfits? My impression was that it was not the case. PR proved that even when designer have the sizes they often get a bad fit at first and some of them never get it right.

He may be crazy, but he's fun crazy.


T-Lo, pumpkins, this is why I dropped by the other day, just hoping to find you dissecting this little queen.

At the end of a very long day during which I've been surrounded by idiots, to read El Pollo Loco made me laugh out loud.

Thanks for that, boys.


You bitches are awesome. Little Honduran Chicken made me laugh out loud.


I meant "tiny Honduran peacock" LOL Sorry long day

Isn't Reco the one that "worked his way through college dressing strippers"? Up next, Ryco!


For someone who dresses like a pimp for Ompaloompas....Merlin takes himself pretty damn seriously.

Love the opening shot TLo has of Merlin. I snicker everytime I look at it.


YESSS that's shannon from bravo's make me a supermodel! she's so great! hopefully next week she gets to walk in something more flattering!


The first time I saw Merlin was on Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency (Oxygen). As I recall he was very funny in that episode. He forced all the Janice's models walk in a very weird and uncomfortable position (facing straight up to the ceiling while walking) and every girl was crying after the walk. I definitely think he is talented, and the outrageous personality is just perfect for a reality tv show. I hope he won't be eliminated too soon.


Thanks SewWhat? for confirming my earlier suspicions; I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. Upon closer examination, the model's "bubble skirt" is indeed a recreation of Elizabethan paned trunk hose; or as known in some modern circles, "pumpkin pants"!


I'm cranky about how badly lit this show was. It was too hard to see the garments, both in the construction and the runway. Did anyone else feel like this?


Pollo Loco it is!!!!!

Will we have our guest cartoonist back?


THANK YOU!!! It has been a long day, but this brightened it considerably!


"LeDbug said...

YES!!!! Where's Alex?


This is hilarious, Tlo! The line about Pat Nixon made me LOL.


Yeah.. his dress was not bad at all and it pains me to say that but I already hate him with a passion. It's like he spends all his time in a bubble and has no idea what is socially acceptable. I hate him.


Is Lidia's model Shannon from Make Me A Supermodel Season 1?


Sewhat? beat me to it-- it's not a bubble skirt, it's a romper with Elizabethan style bloomers. Which is weirder, but probably more interesting. I wonder if others in the audience thought it was a skirt.


I was laughing so hard I distracted Mr.kjt and he had to come read the screencaps!

I would love to see El Pollo Loco vs. NinaGarcia,
or at least their TLo screencaps battling it out.


Personally I can't stand Merlin. But I have a feeling he will be around awhile. Merlin = ratings. The outfit was ugly in my opinion, I thought out of all of them Danielle and James-Paul had the most wearable outfits.

I think that since it was a group challenge it was more about which group wins. I think that they will ditch the groups this week.


Hey, I'll believe that Merlin is 38at the same time I'll believe that Coach Wade on "Survivor" is 37.


LOVE. THE. POST.

FREAKING HILARIOUS!!!!


Much as Merlin's look was the most complex and well-executed on the runway, I agree that it wasn't the winner.

Why? Because it didn't go with the bolero jacket!

That dress was made to wow as a stand-alone garment. Nobody in their right mind puts a jacket over a fabric flower the size of a dinner plate at the waistline.

Merlin was being a show-off. Yes, he made it clear to the world that he could turn out really great stuff. But the challenge was to make something that went with the must-have garment.

Also, since the winner would be sold on the Bravo web site - I think we need a clarification. Do they mean they are going to do a version of the winner that everybody can buy at a reasonable price, or are they just going to sell that single winning garment? If they're mass-producing it, then the designers have to keep that salient fact in mind when producing their garments.

Could be me, but didn't they say that "a version" of the winning garment would be sold on Bravo's web site?


Eric3000 is right. Considering how Daniella parried EPL's whole "male domination" thing in the workroom, her throwing it back at him during judgment -- avec l'eau travaille -- was complete BS. She's working it just as hard as he is. Watch that one.

Yes, we all did. But we vented our extreme frustrations in TLo's two earlier posts about this show.

Could that be why Merlin suddenly made everybody cut the jacket differently in the front? To eliminate the square corners and have an angled edge that wouldn't interfere with the flower as much?

Somebody else commented that Merlin didn't seem to wake up and direct the team until halfway through the competition. Perhaps that was the moment he realized that his dress and the jacket weren't going to go together and made everybody change the jacket.

And I'm hating every minute of it. She's awful. I can't stand her "I'm 22 I know what's fashionable" attitude. Clearly she doesn't, just look at what she was wearing not to mention her hair and eyebrows.


El Polo Loco rules! I love him!!


Did anyone else find Merlin to be way less annoying on TFS than he was on JDMA?


Merlin was right. He was the team leader and should have had 95% of the creative input on the piece, that woman really bugged me.


Merlin looks ridiculous.

Finally stumbling over to the Bravo site, and caught Senorita Merlin's blurb about the first challenge.

The little fucker's cocky, but I had to love him a little for this:

"In regards to Daniella, I can’t wait to see the time when she’s done and packs up her bags to go.

From the beginning she was a pain in the ass. A big mistake OR big disaster! All the time she was sabotaging my team just to call attention. But I, personally, don’t think she has talent. I think Lidia pretends to be weak in order to be unnoticed, but in reality she’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing. She applies little sheep technique but in reality she is using the wrong strategy and it won’t surprise me if she is the next one to hang her last garment.

In regards to the judges. Honestly I agree with the decision they made and how Kelly handled the situation. In her position, I would’ve done the same. I think I was immature and I got caught up in the moment with emotions, and after everything happened, I felt really bad."
I've said this before, but I didn't think he was being intentionally mean-spirited. But he read Daniella right off the bat and confirmed my preconceived notions about her. As far as I'm concerned, I can't wait for the nasty bitch to get the boot myself.


OMG--I am laughing so hard at your commentary that I have big, fat tears rolling down my face!

I'm so glad this show exists, because I would not want to wait until August to get my daily TLo dose!

Thie pollo/chicken thing--OMG! So perfect. So mot juste! (That one's for Jonathan Adler!)


Can you imagine El Pollo Loco going up against "cry and cut" Shetangi?


"TampaBay said on 5/13/09 at 7:22 AM

Merlin was in JDMA to find some models for his runway show. He forced those poor girls walking in a ridiculous position. I found ths clip on youtube...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMyilW2nkiU


Woo, that film of Merlin is distinctly disturbing.


is lidia's model shannon from season 1 of 'make me a supermodel'?

if not, it looks EXACTLY like her

ive been wondering if it was all week!


All right now, "El Pollo Loco" just made me spit Trader Joe's Sparkling Pink Lemonade all over my keyboard, and you just KNOW that's going to be sticky all summer. I should know better than to drink and TLo.
