Project Runway Odds - Week 5

<em>Project Runway</em> Odds - Week 5
Last week we're weren't quite as on target as the week before. Based on girth and his hideous tentwear, Chris was doomed to lose, though we saw him staying a few weeks longer. Miraculously, Ricky survived, albeit only temporarily. This season has already separated into the haves and have nots. Here are the latest survival odds:

Name Odds Movement Our Take
Project Runway - Rami Rami 30:1 - Steady-Eddie. A strong bet to make the finals.
Project Runway - Kevin Kevin 30:1 - Nailed the shorts. Continues to be a leader.
Project Runway - Victorya Victorya 20:1 up Showdown with Ricky highlighted her bitchiness, superiority.
Project Runway - Kit Kit 20:1 - Potentially one of the women in the finals.
Project Runway - Jillian Jillian 20:1 up Was wearing outdated trend (overalls) and then managed to nail the outdated trend (overalls). Dramatically gaining confidence.
Project Runway - Christian Christian 15:1 up Everything is fierce. Just plain fierce. Has a fierce eye for being just 21.
Project Runway - Steven Steven 10:1 down Disasterous dancewear look was truly awful, and yet he seemed to like it. Really disappointed us last week.
Project Runway - Elisa Elisa 7:1 - Alien manages to stick around another week or two.
Project Runway - Jack Jack 6:1 down We're calling his Week 3 win an abberation.
Project Runway - Sweet P Sweet P 3:1 - Hanging on by a thread. Get it?
Project Runway - Ricky Ricky 2:1 - Somehow managed to survive 4th round, in spite of a bad design and a beatdown from Victorya. Remains our favorite to be eliminated.




  • 2 parts Germain-Robin Craft Method brandy
  • 1 part Cointreau
  • 1 part fresh lemon juice

Lightly shake with ice, then pour into a ice-filled rocks glass. Based on your tastes, brandy choice, and strength of the lemon juice, you should adjust the Cointreau and lemon juice to find proper balance.
