NerdBastards: “Has Project Runway jumped the pig?”
Miss Piggy: “The Frog certainly hasn’t lately . . .”
Guest judges are nothing new on reality contest shows, but maybe puppet judges are. Project Runway Allstars has decided to tap the talents of the Muppets own Fashionista, Miss Piggy for an episode on Puppet fashion.
This is probably the only way this NerdBastard would watch the show and the move is a shrewd tactic to gather a larger fan base. If the Muppets can fill theaters then surely they can add a couple hundred thousand new fans to the Project Runway franchise, at least for the night.
Will any of the contestants make a scene about the puppet aspect? Miss Piggy was only the make-believe Vogue Paris’ plus size editor for the last Muppet movie. Her dialogue fort he show will have to be improvised by Eric Jacobson, the hand and mouth behind Miss Piggy’s felt, but it’s not really any different from having a celebrity judge who is an actress or singer, not a fashion professional.
Considering what some of the real life types wear, Miss Piggy might be a little too main stream. You won’t see Miss Piggy in a meat dress . . . unless those cell phone pictures of Miss Piggy “Johanssoning” leak out.
The episode airs Thursday (Tonight) on Lifetime at 9/8C.
