Auf Wiedersehen

I am almost uncomfortable to admit that (despite not watching too much TV lately), I became addicted to Bravo's new show Project Runway. The show is hosted by German supermodel Heidi Klum and produced by Harvey Weinstein, and features 12 aspiring designers in their quest for runway glory in the Big Apple. Contestants are eliminated on a weekly basis based on their execution of "design challenges" until only three remain to face-off with full lines on the catwalk at New York's Fall Fashion Week in February 2005. I just get some bizarre type of pleasure from watching the candidates develop their ideas into a dress in just a couple of hours and then try to explain their concept to judges like Elle's Nina Garcia and Michael Kors. I guess the one (not surprising) thing that comes out of the show is how catty and ego-driven this business can be (and yet I somehow wish Fashion School had been a little more like this).
Another thing I must confess with deep embarrassment is that unfortunately the show is at exactly the same time slot as ABC's Wife Swap, the only other show I seem to derive some pleasure from (alright... aside from Desperate Housewives and a some late night re-runs).
