I've been lurking here for a while and never posted before, but I have to say this. I hate Santino. I just wanna squish him like the little gnat that he is. Every interview he tries really hard to convince us how humble and insecure he is, and in the next breath he trashes everybody he can. Michael Kors can't sew or make a pattern, Nina was a bad judge, Chloe or Dan aren't as talented as he is, Kara's standards weren't as strict as the Final Three, his garment was better than anyone else's on the first challenge, now he thinks he's better than Jay, blah, blah, blah. Sheesh guy - are you listening to yourself? You sound like SUCH a sore loser. Real learning and creating begins when you STFU long enough to take some criticism without maligning the deliverer and MOVE ON.
Oh, how I love Santino. I'm glad that he's coming out and saying some of the things that I've been thinking all along (like how other people's mean comments and incredibly rude behaviors were overlooked in favor of emphasizing Santino's, and how Nina Garcia is really in no position to be telling anybody that their designs suck). And the issue about the fitting thing has been bothering me for a while--I still can't see where there are fitting problems in his final line! Sorry, but "the models look flat-chested" isn't a fit problem. Design problem, sure, but not fit!Gosh, I wish people would stop taking his comments so seriously. 90% of what he says is such obvious sarcasm.
I adore Santino. And the more he speaks, the more I love him. I just relate to him in oh-so-many ways. Other contestants have been giving interviews about their side of what went on, and I think it's great that Santino gets to do the same.Keep talking Santino, and I (and many others) will keep listening.
I *get* Santino and his sarcastic sense of humor. He's freakin' HILARIOUS! Not to mention smart and talented. And, he speaks the truth----most people can't handle that. And, sure, he comes off as having an ego. But how can anyone be in this business and not have an ego?
I am glad everyone is catching up. He's looked like a cry baby since he sulked after not winning the Barbie challenge.Did I laugh at the Tim impressions? absolutely! but yeah - 2 words for him - drama queen.
Santino tells it like it is. He made comments that were on everyone's minds, including the PR audience. The other designers also made snarky comments, but Santino was emphasized on more. Like it's said, Santino is the one who's going to be remembered most. Ok, Dan, Nick, and Andrae will too!
I love Santino.
does anyone else (besides the santino fans) feel like they just wanted time and brain cells reading the santino article? i did. i agreed with tim gunn in the advocate article when he said that santino became weirdly lovable when tim went to visit santino out in l.a., for me it was because it seemed santino had changed, softened up (as the Manolo noted, sweet, meaning not taking the opportunity to bite the heads off of the kids on his lap). but, he is back. ugh.
oops..."wasted time and brain cells".
Like, yeah, I'm sure Santino was edited to show nasty comments. I loved his collection and I'm hardly a Santino-basher. But like...Kara's receipts "who was really checking?" Huh? Is that an accusation or just randomly something thrown out there to try to pull someone else down for no apparent reason? Kara can have a good collection without it making Santino's collection less. Fine, have an ego, fabulous. But really, being good doesn't mean everyone else has to be bad.
What a jerk. He says: "Bottom line is, I respect judges. But at the same time, who are you to tell me anything? This show is about designers who can think up an idea, make the pattern, cut and sew the fabric, style the look. If you can't do that, than I don't think you should be judging that competition."Well, La De Frickin Da, Santino. Unfortunately for you, you didn't come up with the idea of Project Runway. Last year, Nina Garcia and Michael Kors were judges, you jerk. Should Heidi be a judge? She doesn't design clothes, or make them, either. Here's an idea: have an original thought, create your own design show, and get the judges that you want. Idiot.
