SPOILER!

Yeah, spoilers?

Peregrine should have gone over Mark but whatever. And Miles and his performance art is the greatest thing this show could have produced. He won't win, but he is love.

Why they gotta hate on the cute cub?

Haters gonna hate.

I hate "reality" teevee. It was created to avoid paying writers.
5
You can actually sit through that show?

Miles work will be the nail in the coffin of funding public art. Who want's to pay a douchebag to make concrete assholes and a hole punched in drywall?
Also, when the judge forced what's-her-name to admit she masturbates standing up I got totally creeped out.

In, Miles' defense, I think any man could talk Jacqi out of her clothes. She grosses me out. She hasn't offered an articulate explanation about the concepts behnd her work (and in two cases, she was given her ideas from other artists on the show), so my guess is that she's a narcissist who gets off on the attention she gets for being sexy. Which, whatever, more power to her, but how is that relevant in the context of art? She could be on any reality TV show doing the same thing.

Marc came across as insecure about his talent (at least in the eyes of the other contestants). He and Peregrine were both behaving pretty passive-agressively toward each other last night, which made their collaboration more difficult than it needed to be had they just being more forthright about their ideas instead of each worrying about trying to get through the challenge without upsetting the other. That just always leads to resentment. It was hard to watch.

Peregrine and Miles are just jerks.

I really, really, REALLY wanted Ryan to make it to this challenge because he loves himself and is TOTALLY HUNG.

THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS SHOW:

The losers are the winners! Basically, BEING CROWNED BRAVO TELEVISIONS NEXT TOP ARTIST IS A SAD THING TO BE.

Seriously move this behind a jump. There's probably only like two of us actually watching the show, but still.

I really like Miles's work and want to believe that most of the scheming is a product of twisted editing by the producers to create some sort of storytelling dramatic arc. Jaclyn's blog (http://www.jaclynsantos.com/blog/index.p…) certainly makes it seem like the idea for her piece was her own and not all part of his grand plan.

Josh - Jaclyn has a way of the retelling her teamed projects as if they were solely her ideas. It's not the first time. What kills me is that she wanted to take control in her blog retelling of the public art piece seen in episode 6. Why anyone would want to brag about this http://stylembe.wordpress.com/2010/07/15… is beyond comprehension.

I really like Mark work. He did something that he was not comfortable did it with class. He will always be the winner in my book. Miles can go to hell!

@11, well, yes. But I guess I was interested to read her comments about the production of the show and giving Miles the "benefit of the doubt" regarding his interview/confessional comments:

*UPDATE! Miles Mendenhall called to apologize.
I will keep our discussion confidential, but I am glad that after seeing the episode he felt compelled to contact me. There is certain information the viewer will never be privy to, and I am giving Miles the benefit of the doubt in this situation. -- http://jaclynsantos.com/blog/?p=367
