Anyone else noticing how nice Kara is? I recall her welcoming Chloe into the apartment with a hug and something like [welcome] "you beautiful thing." Also notice how she very gently woke Zulema in the last episode? She refers to everyone with endearments like "Babe." Except for the Banana Republic Challenge when she was obviously not herself, she has been a real sweetheart.
Last night with her efforts to help Chloe with the gluing - she totally won me over.
Of course, "nice" doesn't always make great television, but Kara - we've noticed!
Also, Emmett, Nick and Marla ALL mention that Kara is one whom they have kept in touch with. That speaks volumes. Anyone recall Kara ever saying anything unkind about anyone? Oh, yeah, snipping Daniel's "pippy" off... That was great. I think Daniel has been in touch with her too. He said in an interview that he had to "Get it back." : )
It's amazing that the designers at this point are all relatively "even." The winner one week could be out the next. (Like Zulema.) A strong show one week could be out the next. (Like Andrae.) And a weak design one week could be a contender the next (Like Kara.) After last week I think most of us thought she was doomed. But what a great and pleasant surprise this week.
Sorry, Daniel, but I liked Kara's dress a little better. Daniel doesn't need immunity either. I don't understand why Daniel wasn't called on leaving the ribbon straps and the top of his muslin uncovered. Poor Chloe was struggling to cover every inch of her fabric and Daniel's was just so obviously exposed - and HE WON. What were the rules exactly?
But I digress, because this post is about Kara.
Congratulations on a gorgeous dress, Kara. In my opinion, you deserved to win this one. But most of all, you can be proud of your character in this show. No matter what happens - you're a winner.
