Another night of delicious reality

So as I tweeted earlier this evening, tonight is the finest night of the week: First the fashion, then the fighting. The male and the female, yin and the yang of reality TV.

In case it wasn't obvious, I'm talking about Project Runway and Ultimate Fighter. And they didn't dissappoint.

First up on Runway we had the finest of all challenges, the "design for the other designers" challenge, this time with a music theme. And since there are only 5 designers left, they were in full sabeautage mode, mainly aimed at Kenley. Because let's face it, the only musical genre that might have worked for Kenley is Doo-Wop. Or maybe swing. But definitely not Hip Hop. So the rest of the designers, who may have known a thing or two about Hip Hop, basically didn't contradict anything she wanted to do. Not exactly throwing her under the bus, but certainly not stopping her from jumping under it herself. In the end, though, it was Suede's inability to bring the rock (and annoying habit of referring to himself in the third person) that led to his being "auf'd". Poor Suede...

After my feminine side (or fashion side, or whatever side it is that likes Runway) had had it's fill it was time to bring on the testosterone. It's week 2 of Ultimate Fighter, and like last season they're starting things off with guys fighting to get in the house. And really, there's nothing that drives the fashionista out of your system like 8 MMA fights in an hour!
