Tim Gunn’s “Project Runway” spinoff is just more fun knowing that gay Atlanta’s own Nicholas Komor is in it to win it. But we clutch our chains as this week’s challenge proves too close for comfort.
OK, we admit to laughing a little when our boy falls, literally, for the chains he wants while scampering for materials this week. But in general, whether he’s being benched or stomping the runway, we haven’t had much to worry about so far when it comes to Komor staying in the competition.
When Gunn and mentor Anya Ayoung-Chee stop by and love his vision, we’re feeling pretty good again. Despite some Anya eyerolls about time-management, Komor manages to complete his look with a little help. All the way through to the runway show, he’s feeling it.
“I really like it,” Komor says. “I think it’s very clean, demure, smart, intelligent. It’s got everything that I want to say.”
For the most part, we agree. Unfortunately, the judges disagree, as you can see when you watch our video above of all his greatest hits from the ill-conceived challenge. But the big drama is yet to come, and “Under the Gunn” is about to put us through it.
If you’re a spoiler hater, stop reading now and don’t watch the video. Otherwise, check out the “roller coaster of emotions” Komor endures as one of the bottom two, then plan to tune in next week, either on Lifetime or with the designer himself at ATL’s gay watch party HQ, Mary’s in East Atlanta. P.S. We're still not seeing any inkling of why we're supposed to hate him.
