ATL designer serves face to ‘resounding failure’

Add this share

What goes with trumped up TV drama? Good face. Gay Atlanta’s favorite contestant on Tim Gunn’s runway gives side-eye, grimaces and eye-rolling aplenty as another threat to his elimination looms.

Atlanta designer Nicholas Komor’s classic facial reactions are almost enough to distract us from biting our nails while his team heads blithely toward disaster in this week’s episode of “Under the Gunn.” The show spends most of its time on the clusterfuck that is anything mentor Nick Verreos – hate her – touches.

In contrast, Komor and the rest of Team Anya act like they know where they’re going. They don't. Mentor Mondo and his queens aren’t jealous; they’re right. Komor’s look is kind of a mess. The judges and Gunn are not having it. “This was a resounding failure,” Gunn says. Ouch.

We were warned. And for the second time this season, he is visited by the gay fairy godmother in the sky when it comes time for the elimination. Watch his best faces in our compilation video above, keep up with his trials and triumphs each Thursday on Bravo, or join the watch parties with the designer himself at the best gay rock and roll dive bar ever, Mary’s.
