Tim's Take On The Season 3 Auditions

Tim Gunn has posted a detailed report on the Season 3 auditions, and guess what? He recounts the story about the martinis ordered for he and Nick at the Chicago auditions by BPR reader pc! Click here to read her original report on this incident featured right here at BPR.

Congratulations pc, it sounds like you and your friends left a lasting impression on Tim!

the three fastest forms of communication are telephone, telegraph, and tell-a-queen. Tim should have reasonably expected that one!

my best friend auditioned in new york and didn't make. He was devastated because they told him that his garments didn't have the quality of construction that they were looking for. At least he's used this experience as motivation

Wow - over a hundred were asked to make videos! That's a lot. Good luck to everyone and thanks Tim for sharing this. We are really excited about Season Three on BPR!

Ayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!! I can't believe we got mentioned! I'm reliving that magical day again. Happy happy sigh....:) Actually, we weren't orthopedic surgeons in town for a conference, but attorneys who live in Chicago. But that's ok, I will play an orthopedic surgeon in the dark for Tim if he so desires (HAHA!). CHICAGO LOVES TIM GUNN!

Sigh...if only Chloe had also showed up. I would've fainted, woken up, and then held her hostage until she sold me some of her clothes.

I really do love Tim, but it kind of annoys me that he still doubted how Daniel V would be at the auditions because of his inexperience. Isn't getting 2nd place enough to prove that he knows what he's doing?

Thank you Tim for a wonderfully comprehensive picture of the upcpming PR3 candidates. I have thoroughly enjoyed your analyses of the PR world both in your blogs, interviews, and podcasts. Your effort and thoughtfulness is most appreciated.

This is all making me so jonesing for Season 3! I love how Tim can be so funny, insightful and intelligent in the same sentence-he's really incredible. It's interesting to see the audition/interview process a little more in depth, I think.

The show "America's Next Great Inventor" (or something like that) seems to make a whole show out of the auditions. The Project Runway ones sound like they have lots of material for a bigger pre-show segment, but it would have to be handled carefully in light of all the drama Tim mentions! There might be confidentiality/legal releases, etc. But I think it would be (and is, thanks to BPR and Tim) fascinating to see how much competition there is just to get on the show!

Upstate, I'm sure that prior to any time on-screen, releases were signed.

I can't even imagine how tiring it must have been doing those auditions for Tim ... and that was during his 'spring break' from Parsons! He needs a vacation ... and he needs to bring me with him as his sidekick.

Tim is so truthful I love how candid he is and just opens up and shares. There are probably a lot of people in the fashion industry jealous of his position on the show and at Parsons. He is unique so they can only wish.. well anyway I feel upset wth him! :) I am amazed at the hard work that goes on to get the designers. I almost wish we could see a show of the weirdest people and the people with zero skills who still come but then thats a whole other show and I might get upset watching it LOL I can imagne I'd be yelling at the screen- "I can't believe you think you could get on PR!" :)

They go through a psych screening? How did Shatangi and Mr. "I WANT YOUR SOUL" slip past that? Is it a new aspect to PR to weed out the whackos? Don't whackos make for good TV? Don't you have to be a little out of your mind to put yourself through the rigors of a fashion bootcamp like PR?

I would have given my left arm to see Tim's reaction to the "designer" undressing his model in front of the cameras and the judges. Can you imagine the shame of getting kicked out of a room by THE Tim Gunn??? I'd have to have a face transplant, change my name to Shatangi and move to Mars.

Tbone said...

Timophile - I agree! In fact, I would so watch an entire episode of just Tim giving the aufs to all the whickety-whack, pitchety-patchwork designers.

I'm pretty sure that the psychological profile is given to assure the Bravo folks that they DO indeed have a few "mixed nuts" on the show! And we love them, don't we?
