Awwww, Mom. We have to choose only three? Things are starting to get more interesting, especially with immunity coming up next week . . .

12...from the very beginning!

LauraK said...

Come on, it's just for fun. Let's hear your logic.

christine said...

ok, coming from an applied math major -- combinatorics is my thang!

combination, take 3 from 6, is 20 total distinct combinations.

you are missing one arrangment, which is:
daniel, nick, santino


i'm placing my bet on:

i love chloe the designer but i am getting a little bored with her colors and fabrics. they're all so ethereal and blue! which is fabulous, but not so-many-weeks in a row. it'll be a close one between andrae, chloe, daniel, and nick, that's for certain!

LauraK said...

Whoa - thanks Christine - I'll edit! (Not that I understand any of that, I'll just take your word for it!)

The #12 combo would work for me, but Andrae is gaining steam, and I wouldn't want to see him out. His party dress for Nicky Hilton was my favorite--clean lines, elegant yet wearable, and a real departure from what we had seen from him earlier. His dress this week was my favorite! And apparently others thought so as well.

Anonymous said...

Christine's math is over my head, but what puzzles me more is why people confuse very different shades of blue. The turquoise Chloe used for the ice skating dress was a very different shade from the deeper "royal blue" of two of her earlier dresses. I have liked her designs a lot (my personal taste runs to clean lines). Yes, Chloe stuck to blue-ish colors in the "Inspiration" episode, but this time, her dress left me cold.

S.R. (Not Santino)--Hi, Laura if you're there.

#6 (andrae, daniel, nick)

Anonymous said...

put me on the Andrae-Daniel-Nick train, with Santino as the cover fourth - mostly because, after watching the preview for this next episode it suddenly occurred to me the editing story arc is building up to a Boys from Atlas foursome crescendo... so I'm thinking perhaps Nina's 'I'm no longer impressed' comment was to Chloe.

Then again, ask me the same question a half hour from now and I have no doubt my answer will be different!

I think DV is increasingly adorable on the show (it has also been fun to hear him get catty and use explet&!@#$ves), but am I the only person who did not "get" his design this week? His model can sell anything he designs, but I could not imagine anyone in real life or even on the red carpet actually wearing that top.

S.R. (not Santino)

ABC said...

Chloe, Daniel, Nick make a lot of sense.

But since this is reality TV, I bet Chloe will be out and Santino will be in.

Anonymous said...

been saying daniel, chole, nick from the start
but andrae just might sneak in

LauraK said...

I've noticed a slight trend toward "balance" between the men and women. (They started with an even number of men and women. They eliminated one man and one woman after the first challenge.) So, I'll be surprised if the final three are all men. I think Nick for sure, then I'm stumped. Andre has tremendous talent. Chloe is the best girl. I'm just not sure.

Anonymous said...

going with #13 on this one

Tbone said...

I'm standing by #12. Am I the only one worried about Nick in this? I think it's possible that Nina might be saying the "I'm no longer impressed" line to him. Also agree with LK on the "balance" issue, Chloe will be in. MK and Nina have consistently given her high marks.

The Scarlett said...

I'm going with Chloe, Nick and Daniel. (Choice 12)

Anonymous said...

I agree with T-bone. I think that Nina is referring to Nick when she says she's no longer impressed. I am also concerned that since there are six of them this next episode could be a paired challenge and Nick pairs with Santino again, to their demise in the show. I think Chloe could carry Kara but Nick and Santino couldn't be saved.
If this happens my final three is Danny, Andrae and Chloe.

But secretly I hope it's Nick, Danny and Andrae.

Anonymous said...

I PRAY it will be Nick, Daniel and Chloe. But my sneaking suspicion is that it will be Santino, Anrdrae and Nick. I don't know why I think this is the case (I may be reading into the behavior/presence of the designers since the filming of the show).

Anonymous said...

7. Andrae, Daniel, Santino

I think Nick's model problems will leave him at a disadvantage. Kara still hasn't won a challenge so it's probably too late now. Chloe really is sailing by because the judges think she's "cute," but her designs aren't as inspired as the others.

Anonymous said...

A lot goes into who gets immunity this week-if Kara goes this week and say, Santino gets immunity next week-doesn't that mean that Nick, Daniel, Andrae or Chloe has to be eliminated? It could be another WP situation-a dark horse (I doubt it would be Kara, though) could be saved and then onto fashion week in some odd turn of events! I agree, it's either Nick or Chloe getting the "I'm no longer impressed" comment. I'm thinking Daniel, Andrae, Chloe with Nick as the ruse. Or maybe Santino as the ruse and that's why Nick is so upset with him. I have a feeling something goes down with him because of comments the others have made about him recently-Santino, that is.

Curly Glamour Girlie said...

Immunity - they're not doing that this season, are they? They haven't mentioned immunity once I don't believe. (I could be wrong)

Case in point - Zulema won last week and was booted this week.

My choice - 12. I think Santino is this season's Austin - trying to listen to the client, but still hearing his own voice too loudly.

Although Andre's been quietly sneaking up.

The Scarlett said...

There is a preview in which Tim says that the winner of the upcoming challenge will have immunity. I saw it yesterday on Bravo.

Curly Glamour Girlie said...

Ah, I stand corrected. Last season, didn't they institute immunity early then take it away???

AJ said...

My opinions have changed so drastically during the entire run of this show! If you had asked me this after the Barbie Challenge, I would have given you a stone cold solid Santino, Nick and Chloe for fashion week.

Then a little birdy by the name of Daniel V. came blipping onto my radar and has consistently improved and made me a HUGE fan! This in conjunction with Santino's falters during lingerie, and ice skating had me changing my tune to Daniel, Nick and Chloe for fashion week.

THEN...Chloe started to bore me a bit. I have been feeling that everything she's done has been similar in effect while others *cough*Andrae*cough* have stepped up their game and started to shine.

If the show continues on like it is (ie: Santino spiraling down, Chloe lacking depth, Nick's being consistent and Daniel V and Andrae improving) then I have to agree with the Nick, Daniel V and Andrae consensus.

Issues that come up...will they keep Santino b/c he's good TV? Will Santino bounce back and start channeling his early PR self? Will Chloe change her tendencies? Is it remotely possible that Kara could pull off a win? (doubtful...) And will the producers really allow 3 men to the final three?

I have strong feelings that the top 3 will be a combination of Chloe, Nick, Daniel V., and Andrae. I have weak feelings that Chloe will actually not make it, but at this point I'd like to see it be Daniel V, Nick and Andrae.

Long enough for ya?

12 - Cloe, Daniel V, Nick

Sam said...

12 is my pick and has been from the beginning. They're the most talented, the cutest, and Nick has some serious drama queen potential.

Anonymous said...

Nick, Andrea and Daniel are my picks for the final three.

AJ said...

For those who think Daniel has a quiet demeanor, take a peek at the bonus videos on's hysterical! So snarky at times...I love it.

There's a video of Santino doing Tim singing Nine Inch Nails with Daniel in it and I kid you not, I was CRYING I was laughing so hard. Daniel's reactions were classic!

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Picking 12

But Andrae could re-place Chloe in my choice of final three. Looking forward to seeing his next design.

Daniel--could it be that he's warming up to the camera? I can't imagine having to do my artwork with someone always watching, and some people are just camera-shy.

Very happy to see more of his brilliant personality and smile on screen.

eric3000 said...

1! my pick was 12 until this last episode when Nick had a nervous breakdown.

AJ said...

I don't know which video it was, but it was one of the bonuses from the most recent episode. It was Santino doing a Timpression and might have been the NIN one.

Anyway, at the very end, Daniel is saying that the Timpression is what keeps him going. It was something to the affect of: "This is the only thing that keeps me going. It really is. It's the one thing that keeps me going." He pauses. "Well...this and conjugal visits."

I was DYING! So he's a fabulous designer and adorable, with a sense of humor to boot :)

Laura, can we get a Dan appreciation post??

The Scarlett said...

Did any of you watch Dan's audition video? He is so cute and funny!

Kim in Oregon said...

12...or 13.

Kara has held on by the skin of her teeth for several challenges. I think she's out next.

While everyone says good things about Andrae, all his stuff starts to look like his adaption of other people's work. I think the 'dirty water' picture just worked into his personal aesthetic...I don't think it inspired him at all. So I think he will be out after Kara.

Daniel is in for sure. I'm pretty sure Chloe too (because honestly, I don't think they want three guys in the final). The final slot will be either Nick (I HOPE) or Santino. Santino could be out soon if he doesn't get his act together. Clearly they need a "pretty dresses for rich girls" challenge to get another win for Santino.

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Laura--I second the idea for a Daniel Appreciation Thread.

Pretty please!!!

He's so brilliant, and if I weren't already married, I'd be in the competition to win him over!

Dinah said...

I am going with #12 because they are my favorite ones! I secretly hope Chloe wins but I think it will go neck and neck between the boys.

LauraK said...

Holy cow Don! Amazing. E-mail me, okay? Next week, when we are down to five, we'll set this up again and YOU can be in charge!

18. Daniel, Kara, Santino
