Have you been keeping up with Season 5 of "Project Runway?" I have - and haven't. I watch on Wednesday (at 9) right before the new show if I missed the week before. But, I admit, I've yet to embrace this crop of designers.
But, in fairness to the local talent, kudos to Yuba City native Leanne, who is still in the competition with three more challenges before it's determined who will compete in the finale at Bryant Park on Oct. 15.
Leanne, who struggled at the outset of the show, has really come on strong and was one of the best in last week's "horoscope" design challenge. FYI: She was paired with former contestant Emily, who is a Sactown native.
Tomorrow night's challenge? It's called "Transformation." Here's Bravo's take: "Growing up is hard to do, but the designers get their own lesson in sophistication as they help re-invent college-aged women for entry into the working world."
Translation: From frump to fashionista - kicking and screaming all the way! Guest judge is designer Cynthia Rowley (pictured).
And, I believe Wednesday night is the short-cut hair episode on "America's Next Top Model" ( 8 p.m., Channel 31, The CW). Will Analeigh, who is from Sac, get whacked - and I don't mean eliminated. She's got quite a following on the show. But a lot of bloggers are saying the show shouldn't crop her lovely tresses. Guess we'll see if someone gets scissor happy!
