Hoping vs. Predicting

It seems that we each have our favorite three that we HOPE will get to the finals and we also have our predicted three that we BELIEVE will get to the finals - so let's go with our favorites here: Which three do you HOPE make it to the finals? Which three are your favorites?

So my final three are:

1. Daniel
2. Nick
3. Chloe

But arghgh it's tough. i like Andrae's stuff a lot too. But Chloe's skating dress *really* blew me away, as did her clothes-off-your-back dress, and the outfit with the silver jacket she made with Emmett.

I think Santino makes clothes I wish I could wear and I really LIKE Kara, but I kind of feel that the others "ought" to go there before they do.

So i guess i can be happy no matter who makes it. But I really think those three deserve it most.

Oh wait, I have to pick 3 different people? That's hard because I only have eyes for Nick. Talented AND Hot! I don't really get this new "Dan Fan" thing. But, OK, my hope and prediction lists are the same:
1. Nick

3. Daniel V.

Hope:

Predict:

Daniel, Nick and Chloe/Andrae/Santino (I really think it's a toss-up at this point)

1. Daniel
2. Chloe
3. Santino

These three are all so different in their design sensibilities, that a competition between them would be most interesting.

cpHope:

1. Daniel (duh!)
2. Nick
3. Chloe

Andrae would be my alternative.

gilliflower said...

hope:
1. andrae
2. chloe
3. daniel v.

predict:
1. nick
2. chloe
3. daniel v.

it's not that i don't like nick...i just think andrae has been shockingly consistent, turning out stunning design after stunning design. but i think he has kind of freaked out the judged since day 1, so i fear he won't make it. chloe is my hometown girl, and i support her fully. when she says in the opening "you will see me at fashion week," i believe her. and daniel v., well, what's not to like? (though i do think andrae should have won the inspiration challenge...)

Moi ;) said...

I still want

1. Nick
2. Daniel
3. Andrae

I think...the same three - in any order!!! Daniel looks like the judges' favorite now.....but you never know....

Some general comments on the "balloting":

HOPE TO WIN:
Dan/Chloe/Nk--10 votes
Dan/And/Nk----3
Dan/And/Chloe--2
Dan/And/San----2
Dan/Chloe/San --2

And 3 separate votes for Andrae, 1 for Nick, 1 for Chloe (Not part of a three vote)


PREDICT TO WIN:
Dan/Chloe/Nk---4 votes
Dan/Nk/San-----4
Dan/Chloe/San---2
Dan/Nk (w. either Chloe, Andrae or Santino)--1
Andrae (as a Dark Horse)--1

Breaking this down to individuals:

HOPE ::::::PREDICT

Dan::::20:::::::10===30
Chloe:14+1::::5+1==22
Nick:::14+1::::9====24
Santino:5::::::::5+1==11
Andrae::7+3:::1+1==12

Conclusions:
1)Daniel is far ahead of everyone else. NOT ONE PERSON failed to include him in the Final Three in either group. That is totally amazing. I think that in addition to his flair for coming up with polished distinctive designs, his consistency gains him high points. AND he's managed to stay out of the limelight, which has put the whole focus on his work to his advantage,
2)Kara was not included by a single person in either group. Of course, this was before Wednesday's episode
where she possibly had the best design. I liked the fact that she told Tim she was developing it "organically" and the fact that she helped Chloe, who could conceivably have been eliminated. Chloe's was also stunning, it looked like fabric from a distance. Daniel as usual came up with a winner, but his design does not look as good in the photo as it did on the runway. Andrae, after a tepid start and his famous meltdown (which I totally understood, he only had a small amount of denim to work with) and who had recently become one of my favorites, won 10 others over (out of 22 voting)--BUT almost no votes predictiing that he would make it to Fashion Week. Somebody had a premonition.
3)While the trio Daniel/Chloe/Nick are clearly winning people's hearts, that strong allignment loses some steam when it moves over to the prediction category where it divides into two popular combinations: Dan/Nk/San (4); Dan/Chl/Nk (4)--the race for third position being between Chloe and Santino.

Just to be contrary I've chosen Dan/Chloe/San: I think these three would bring fascinating, variegated collections to FashionWeek.
Like everyone else I've chosen Daniel, although he hasn't always been my favourite (for instance, I thought Andrae's Inspiration design was spectacular and the undisputed winner.) But Nina and MKors seem to be conspicuously leaning toward Daniel. I think that they're looking for a more "Hauteur" look this season.
And with Daniel they'll definitely get it.

This vote is hardly statistically valid, and can't be considered predictive, of course. But it may give a slight clue to the subconscious crosscurrents
that are floating around.
Anyone who chooses to add their vote now, I will factor
it into the totals above, or add a new category, which would be very interesting now with Andrae gone ***sigh***and after Kara's STRONG SHOWING.
