Shear Genius=Fantastic Season 2=Not so great
I LOVE shear genius but this season was a bit of a disappointment to me. The contestants/stylists were really full of themselves and rude and it took all the fun out of it for me. The challenges weren't very organized like the first season where they introduced one thing at a time, this season was totally helter skelter. I hope season three is better!
