That was twizzled.

Everything was a little off last night on "Project Runway." It was obvious to anyone with experience scrutinizing reality show editing that Jillian — the designer who made a bodice and skirt out of Twizzlers — was not in danger of losing — as they tried to make you think — but that she was going to end up triumphing. (It was just like Austin and the corn husks in Season 1.) But then she didn't win. Using materials scavenged from the Hershey store, she was the only one who saw fit to make her clothes out of food. Yet she came in second. At least first went to one of the designers who used candy wrappers as fabric and not one of the many idiots who tried to make it easy by using cloth (disgusting cloth ripped from novelty pillows). And then they kicked out Elisa and not Sweet P. Why? Because she turned the candy theme macabre. But you could her demise coming — you who have experience scrutinizing reality show editing — because they chose this episode to let us in on her tragic background — a Porsche crashed into her head and split it open 4 inches (which may explain a good bit of her elfin eccentricity).

I thought the judges were right--the winning dress was really great, with the Twizzlers a close second.

I thought Jillian's Twizzler creation should have won.

I honestly can not fathom how you can watch those shows enough to evaluate the determinative factors involved in editing.

On the other hand, I read romance novels, so who am I to talk?
