Top Design Over: Matt Wins, Bravo Still Sucks

Who told Bravo that weird lips and a British accent get viewers? Top Design dragged Trudie Styler into the judges’ panel, and if we’ve heard it once, we’ve heard it a million times: she has hot tantric middle-aged sex with Sting, among others. She kept harping on Matt’s sterile bedroom.

But he won, Carisa didn’t and we still hate Bravo.

Project Top Design went to the party. And then they went to LAURA BENNETT’S to watch the show!

The Gilded Moose liveblogged. Best line:

Todd Oldham is so endearing. He’s sort of like a lesbian Don Knotts.

Blogging Top Design asks readers for only positive comments about Carisa. One and holding.

Jonathan Adler thinks bloggers should be glad to see his white, hairy ankles. So prep, don’cha know?

Linda Merrill deconstructs the loft challenge.

FBLA wonders why the LA Times Home section has barely mentioned this show. Shot here with designers from here–or is that too obvious?

Summing up: Top Design was just okay. Casting was decent, challenges were poorly conceived, judges adequate, production values good. B-/C+
