Tim hated this season. And I agree with him completely. They did not seem to want it enough. Some of the most talented (I'm looking at you Swapnil) were barely putting in an effect and even admitted it.
For me Kelly was the one designer who clearly wanted it. She fought and she grew over the season. No one else seemed to really grow. Even some of my favorites like Candace and Ashley just kind of stagnated. They started out strong and then never pushed.
