Make new friends, but keep the old...

Aaaah, the holidays. There's no better time to catch up with loved ones, n'est-ce pas? You know...aunts, cousins, ex-boyfriends, and, of course, Kara Saun.

Although Bravo has cruelley ripped away my weekly PR4 fix, at least they've been kind enough to anesthetize me with a hefty dose of PR1-3! Yesterday, as I sat in Maison du Blonde waiting for my ride to the Dayton City "International" Airport, I was joined by the smiling faces of some of my all-time faves (Austin, Jay and Kara), along with the menacing grin of my all-time least fave (Well, to be fair, my all-time least fave is Angela, but Wendy is definitely deuxième!). This little trip down memory lane got me thinking: I have some puh-retty strong feelings about the season one contestants - both as designers and, like, human beings. Ditto for seasons 2 and 3. But season 4? Notsomuch. I'm sure it's because we're still so early into the competition (for you as well), but so far there's no one that's got me A) gushing about how badly I want them to outfit me or 2) ranting about how I want to bludgeon them with a shoe from the Bluefly accessories wall. Like, I loved Jack, but I didn't Daniel Voso-love him. And I get a kick out of Christian, but he's no Andrae. And though I see Kevin's technical skill, his vision falls short of Jeffrey's.

In short, this is my call to the cast of PR4 to step up their game next week. Christian, you need to find the Santino to your Andrae. Rami, you must find the Daniel V. to your Nick Verreos. Marché, you may look like Jay McCarroll, but your designs lack his unique point of view that makes me not want to wear his clothes, but totally appreciate their beauty. Get with it people! I want there to be options for who should win each challenge, rather than clear winners every time. And is it so much to ask that your Tim Gunn impressions, I don't know, SOUND LIKE TIM GUNN! Also, come on, Ricky - don't just annoy me, make me hate you! Passion is what this show is all about people - so go hard, or get AUWT.
