"The ethnicity you talked about is, I think, delightful."- Brooke Shields on Project Runway
This illustrates my entire hate/love relationship with this and its sister show Top Chef. I very much enjoy watching competent people at work creatively. I kind of wish shows like this had been on in my formative years. However, I feel that the nature of the shows is the Northeastern upper crust casting down their crumbs to us, the clay-eating, shoeless masses who sit, baking in the Southern sun staring north waiting for our buckets of slop.
