Ep. 01 | Aired Jul 18, 2013

AN INCONVENIENT SPOOF Is Timothy for real?

Lifetime

Sandro

Sandro

Okay, I'm surprised the model smiled through the whole trip down the runway because this look was offensively bad. Holy Russian flapper prostitute! Seriously, the model would have grounds to sue Sandro for ... something, I don't know what. I love how Sandro blamed his model's vagina for "dropping" instead of his own horrible body sleeve/dress for riding up. Heidi was dismayed by Sandro's taste level, which appears to be nonexistent, yet the judges saw enough quality of construction (i.e., the producers find Sandro entertaining) to keep him around.

Timothy

Props to Nastasia for straight-up not doing Timothy's choreography as planned. She could have broken her neck since she didn't have the proper footwear, although she did perform a spectacularly half-assed overhead arm hoop. Timothy told the story behind his dress, which involved the bombing of Hiroshima -- that actually made total sense, since the dress was a disaster of epic proportions. Zac couldn't think of insults fast enough. Nina did a horrible job faking interest in Timothy's sustainability "cause." Thanks, Zac, for pointing out Timothy's contradiction in depriving his model of shoes yet wearing bedazzled heels himself. Timothy is a fascinating myriad of contradictions.

Angela

Angela

Even given Sandro's sartorial vomit and Timothy's manmade disaster, Angela really was the right choice to leave. She brought nothing interesting or remotely ambitious to this sad little raincoat. As it often is with Runway, hideous trumps boring any day!

What do you think of the twists this season? And Timothy: hilarious, infuriating, or neither?
