Interesting Contestants, Boringly stiff hostess
Taking Jaclyn Smith out of hosting Shear Genius is a mistake. She brought class to this reality show. The new hostess is uninteresting, zero personality and speaks like she's got marbles in her mouth. Bring Jaclyn back!!!!
Great Stuff, but agreed, needs better hostess
The show itself is really great in terms of the characters and challenges and really holds your interest as it presents characters you care about (something Project Runway, has somewhat ceased doing). The judging panel could be better, and Camilla really means well, but seems really out of it and lacks a command of the English language (She's no Heidi Klum). Still, the show stands on its own and I highly recommend watching it.
Jaclyn we miss u.
This show is pretty fun to watch. It does seem however that the new host has spent tons of time with a dialect coach so she has this super weirded out pseudo American accent. I kind of wish she would just talk with a strong Spanish accent instead of trying to sound comfortable in English which she clearly is not. I mean get frikkin Charo to do it or something. No offense to the new host - she's sweet n all - I think it is a producer's blunder.
