As most of you probably know by now, a certain silver haired gentleman was sent home last week. Bert, the designer that seemingly drove everyone crazy at first, only to end up somewhat charming them lost the challenge because he, essentially, loathed the color palette he had to work with. I think we all knew that color wasn’t his favorite and you could see almost instantly that he was going to struggle with the tropical bird he had to base his look on.
I wasn’t surprised that he was sent home due to his pageant style gown and neither was he. When I asked him if he agreed with the judges’ decision and whether he thought it was his time to go home, he said…”I don’t think it was my time to go home, but this last challenge wasn’t what I was all about. I was stuck with that bird because of the color. I think they made the right choice. I wish I had brought my second look. It was much more about what I was about.”
As for what’s next on his agenda, he said that he’s “in LA, working on a couple clients. I’m making something for Julie Bowen. She’s a real modern woman.” On a side note…I adore Julie Bowen. I am SO addicted to Modern Family!
