Tim Gunn bitches about Gretchen Jones’ Project Runway victory (video)

Below is a video that NY Magazine’s Vulture column & Dlisted just got their hands on - Tim Gunn discussing the past season of Project Runway, and last week’s big reveal that the winner was… the bitch everybody hated. The unprofessional, tacky, budget, nasty, two-faced wench known as Gretchen Jones. Go here for my thoughts on the finale - and here for a bitchy post-victory interview Gretchen did. In this video, Tim is addressing an audience gathered for an event for Kate Spade in Pennsylvania.


Tim crams a lot of bitching into a short monologue. He complains about Nina Garcia and Michael Kors’ blatant hypocrisy, gives a nudge to Jessica Simpson, and basically sounds as displeased as all of us that Gretchen won. Also - why did the PR producers edit Tim out of the judging? I would have loved to have seen Tim trying to reason with the Kors and Garcia beasts, and it would have made for interesting television. Here’s a little more:

*When the show’s judging panel was deadlocked, Klum asked Gunn what his opinion was. When she learned that he agreed with her that Mondo should win, she asked him to join her in appealing directly to Garcia and Kors in favor of crowning him the winner. Subsequently, Gunn reports, “I went with Heidi and we made quite a case for our candidate.”

*At the time, Klum was upset with Gunn about a quote of his, published in the L.A. Times, about “crack smoking judges” — a reference to how much he disagreed with many of the judging panel’s decisions this season. When the two agreed on the Mondo question, Gunn reports that Klum asked him, “Can you remove my crack-smoker badge?” Gunn responded, “Yes, because Nina and Michael are smoking enough for all of us!”

*Gunn wraps up by offering this final, “oh well” take on the judges’ decision: “Mondo will do fabulously anyway, and Gretchen really needs the money.”

Sigh… I love Tim. He’s the Greek chorus of Project Runway - he stands in for the audience in real time, and Tim thinks you’re smoking crack, then you are totally a crackhead. If Tim thinks you are a crappy designer, you are one. Tim hath decreed it!

Now, my love for Tim not withstanding, I still don’t think I’m going to watch next season. I’m over this bitch, at long last. But Tim will be forever!
