      Each episode I watch strengthens my belief that Ven has some sort of mental/emotional disorder. I keep expecting him to just up and reveal that he’s a high-functioning autistic or something along those lines. I was appalled by the way he treated his client with such blatant disrespect. “You’re too big. All our belts are too small for you. I can ask if we can get a special belt for you, but I don’t know…” “My client is the biggest client so I don’t think it’s necessarily fair to judge my work the same as the designers who got ‘normal-sized’ women…” Those aren’t direct quotes of course but they are the gist of what he was saying in front of his client!!! You’d think that, as a plus-size man himself, he’d be aware of how it feels to be so blatantly insulted about his weight in front of others. Of course as I stated before, I’m starting to believe Ven has difficulty feeling anything. I was very disappointed that he wasn’t sent home.

      Gunnar, on the other hand, had a plus-size client and by the time he was done with her she was so pumped full of confidence (from both the dress and his words) that she worked that runway. I definitely gained some new respect for Gunnar after this episode.

      Ven is not going to make it. First of all, how can you be a designer when can’t work with size 14 (what size is he anyway: reality check!) Besides, he has that one technique of working the fabric into an accessory. Everything he does comes back to that.

      I loved Ven until this episode. He is utterly clueless. He needs to have someone design clothes for him and pull the same crap on him that he pulled on his plus-size model. Sorry Ven, we don’t have any belts big enough to go around your huge belly.

      I loved the way Gunnar and Fabio dealt with their clients. My opinion of them skyrocketed during this episode.

      I think Elena or Ven should have been eliminated instead of Nathan. I hated to see Nathan go.

      Nina wasn’t the one that didn’t like the belt, it was the guest judge.

      Fabio’s dress reminded me of granny from beverly hillbillies

      Ven is no longer a serious competitor to me. How could he possibly conduct business in reality without being able to design for a woman that is not a size zero?! I was talking about this episode with a few ladies from my office at Dish, and we were personally insulted by Ven’s comments since we fall into this “real women” category. I can’t stand to even look at the man anymore! In fact, I purposely recorded the most recent episode and I plan to do the same with any future episodes he’s in so I can skip through all his self-appraising monologues. It’s a trying job to ask of my DVR, since these episodes are quite lengthy, but it’s so worth it to not have to hear him say stuff like men are stronger designers. Besides, I have the Hopper DVR, with loads of memory space, so these hefty episodes barely make a dent on my recording hard drive. Can Ven just go home already?!
