Let's be honest. Project Runway has gone from the must-see tv of the seasons 1, 2 and especially 3—Michael Knight! Laura Bennett! Uli!—to last season's so-so creations to ... this year. It's obvious Proj Run is on life support until the show migrates to Lifetime and the producers and cast are phoning it in. However ... it's heartening to see such a diverse cast. All except one of the men are gay. Plenty of rockers and biker chicks,. Silly third person Suede. Blayne, the tanorexic wigger ("Holla atcha boy!"). Two very fierce sistahs and ... well, then there's Jerell Scott.
How to say this gently? Jerell is just not very impressive. If you can get beyond the voice and the "child" and "girl" country queenisms—think Alex on Noah's Arc—Jerell's creations are less than inspiring and borderline pedestrian. The Gristede's challenge? Not much of a wow factor there.Oh, and it's very interesting watching him choose his models. Not very diverse.
My money is on Terri, Korto, Kenley or Keith.
