Tim Gunn's Guide to What Not to Wear

So, judging by the highly scientific poll here, a slight majority of you love Mr. Gunn, but didn't much care for his new show. That's exactly how I felt myself. I have to admit that I was disappointed with it, but I can't say that I was all that surprised at being disappointed either.
I sort of had a feeling it might not be that great, not awful, but not great.

I do love Veronica Webb, always have, so that's a nice plus, but I can't say I'll be rushing home to watch the next episode.

I really didn't care for that first contestant either. She was far too fawning for my tastes. I like a little feistiness in my makeover contestants, a little fire in
the belly. I like to see Stacy and Clinton brow-beat and wrestle a feisty one into submission.

Well, I used to.
Now, I'm just kind of over it all, you know.

And that whole bit of Tim's presenting the husband with the purchased ring stuck in my craw (and an ICE.COM (tm) diamond ring stuck in the craw is not fun, lemme tell you)

Anyway, I'm not sure the world needs another makeover show, not that I have even the vaguest idea of how to package Tim Gunn and his dazzling silver charm into a tv

Maybe have him dress up in little outfits and give vocabulary lessons?

That I might actually rush home to see.

It would depend on the "little outfits." I see I've returned to my Saucy French Maid thing. Mmm, Mlle. Gunn and Her Oversized Feather Duster. We'd all rush home for that.

I think Tim Gunn is so sexy! I’m afraid that if I got him alone in a room I would f**k him until he’s dead.

You really ARE a kinky one, aren't you?

I answered your poll with the "I didn't watch it" choice because I had NO idea what you were talking about. ;)

But I was watching "Miracle Planet" last night, and during a commercial, I was flipping through channels and ran across your show.

There was a woman who was really upset that someone wanted to go through her underwear. I had no idea what was going on, so I had to watch and see.

I didn't even make the connection until I saw your photo of Tim Gunn (never heard of him) this morning. I thought I was watching a different version of "What Not to Wear." I was bored. . .well, after the underwear drama scene. ;)

And of course, because they trapped me with that scene and I watched too long, I missed part of "Miracle Planet." Now how will I ever know how the dinosaurs died out? ;)

So is that woman with Tim Gunn Veronica Webb?

Miss Janey said...

Tim Gunn is dreamy in every way. Miss janey wishes he was her gay dad or uncle. Sadly, she didn't love hs show the way she hoped. Not enough SASS from anyone. Oh, well. There's always PR to look forward to.

Jesus killed them.

thombeau said...

Tim Gunn should host a talk show. Not that we need another one of those, either!

Silly Monkey said...

Damn that Jesus! He's always ruining the fun, isn't he?

I don't know, if it wasn't for Jesus, who would nuns marry?
