Shear Genius - Clipping an Angel's wings

I honestly can't see how things could have gone as wrong as they did last night in the Shear Genius Charlie's Angels Challenge.... but unfortunately my friends they did.

Things start off great, we have the shortcut challenge and Charlie wins (much to Dee's dismay) and he gets to choose the teams for the next Challenge. As we all know, it's the Charlie's Angels Challenge complete with Rene doing his European version of Charlie and chatting with the stylists by intercom. The Challenge goes on with not too much drama, but you can tell that things are not as rosy as they should be.
We finally get the chance to see Kate Jackson (still looking great, and once she relaxed she was quite interesting) and Jaclyn Smith reunite, and all of our teams of stylists present their modern take on the 3 iconic hair styles of the original Angels.

Now... that sounds like a great, fun and interesting challenge .... but unfortunately the result was terrible and none of the stylists won. Not a single one .... and that is a very sad state of affairs when you have one of the icons in front of you everyday during the competition and you can't do a decent adaptation of her hair style? It's just a sad, sad state of affairs.....

All I can really say is that I was very disappointed with the results and it was too bad that Charlie wasn't a participant (he had this weird exemption from winning the Short Cut Challenge) and even our big gay boys Daniel and Paulo couldn't do much. It was just a big mess left and right. Jaclyn and the judges made sure that they made a point of saying how disappointed they were (and rightfully so) before cutting Glenn. Remarkably, Nekisa was in the bottom 2 again yet still lives to style another day -- that will certainly give Charlie more ammo for some upcoming bitch sessions. Now if I can just get this bad taste out of my mouth all will be better...
