Blake annoys his fellow designers again, but not for the last time.
Two weeks ago, designer Blake awakened the ire of Twitter when he commented to fan favorite Swapnil that he “doesn’t speak Indian.” This week, Blake has a lot to say about himself and his fellow contestants that continues to make viewers wish he’d get sent home.
In the workroom, the designers are on task with their latest assignment — to make a garment based on a classic piece, with their own twist, inspired by the city of New York. Blake studies the clock and assesses that they have six hours to work. Gabrielle corrects him and says they actually have nine, and Blake laughs that he can’t tell time. None of the other designers, or anyone on Twitter, thinks this is cute or funny.
"It's not attractive to pretend to be dumb." Blake doesn't know what time it is. Or how annoying he is. #ProjectRunway

During Tim’s walk-through, Blake can’t explain to him how his design will come together, and proceeds to make high-pitched, stressed-out noises as he runs around the room. Before runway, he manages to prick his finger and bleed on the dress, but somehow, he’s not too stressed out to find something snide to say about Lindsay’s garments. He interviews that they look like they were designed for a librarian with a lot of cats who stays home to read on Friday night. Uh-oh, Blake. It turns out there are a lot of cat-owning, Friday night book-reading Project Runway fans.
He’s too busy being shady and he has not sewn his own dress! #ProjectRunway

Blake? Really? After he insulted people that hang out with their cats? No. Blake is dead to me. #ProjectRunway

Twitter is more than over Blake at this point, but then the judges astonish everyone by liking his dress and declaring him the winner (they agreed that while his dress was poorly constructed, he had taken a risk). Not only does Blake get immunity, but $5,000 and a Marie Claire feature. And he’ll be back next week to annoy Project Runway‘s dutiful Twitter followers once again.
So Nina puts Blake on the top just because he made something? hey I just knitted some socks, Nina, go ahead, tell me I won #ProjectRunway

If Blake wins with shitty construction when they just ragged on Gabrielle for horrible construction I'm going to lose it #ProjectRunway

#ProjectRunway Blake seriously? Horrified, just horrible, ugly, and the sequin basketball dress is safe. I don't know I can keep watching

There is just no way NO WAY that Blake's Tent, Parachute, Comforter should be on top. The SHAME judges. THE SHAME! #ProjectRunway
