Well, we'd heard this through the grapevine and now Tim's confirming it on his video blog. It's not like it's a scintillating piece of gossip. Anyone with a basic grasp of math could have figured it out. The Project Runway finale runway show is scheduled for the beginning of fashion week in New York; the 12th, specifically. That means one more episode with one more elimination will air before then. Put it together and you have the biggest finale show with the highest number of decoys, in, as Tim would say "THE HISTORY OF PROJECT RUNWAY echo echo echo..." We'd only heard there would be "a lot" of decoys, but Tim is saying that every designer standing at the end of the next episode will be showing, and advises us to do the math. We'd heard anywhere from 8 to 12 collections were showing, and since there are currently 12 designers left, it looks like it'll be 11 in Bryant Park, unless there's a double elimination next week.
We're of two minds about this, which is good, because there are, y'know, two of us. It means we'll get to see a really long show in Bryant Park and we'll have a ton of shit to rip for weeks afterward. But it also takes away the specialness of having the opportunity to show a collection on a world stage. That's the whole reason why contestants struggle to make it to the end. To give it to basically 2/3 of an entire season's cast, weakens it considerably.
And it's impossible for us to ignore that because of the whole move to Lifetime and accompanying lawsuit, there weren't ANY decoys last season. Gordana and Christopher must be pissed at this news.
