She has never won a challenge. Every time the other judges unanimously wanted to vote Patricia off - Heidi over-rode them.I really like Patricia. She seems to be a very mature person and is dedicated to her craft. Her vision is unique but I think it needs to mature and blend more of her crafty textile innovation with well crafted marketable design.
Up until this season - decisions that were based on making Runway having good "showmanship" over being fair and unbiased toward all the designers evenly has been on the down-low. Sure you have to make some decisions that the producers/directors/Heidi make just to keep it interesting. Of course it could be that this season it was decided to make the judging unfair to ad controversy - is that it?
