Project Runway's Tim Gunn is def not here for Marie Kondo

scandal 26/04/2019

The organisation queen Marie Kondo has shot to fame recently, mainly thanks to her Neflix series 'Tidying Up with Marie Kondo'.

But not everyone is a fan of her methods apparently, including our fave Project Runway mentor Tim Gunn. 

In podcast 'The One Way Ticket Show', Tim Gunn has gone absolutely IN on Marie and her methods - he is absolutely not here for Marie Kondoing at all.

"I’ve never said this publicly... I have been asked twice to conduct an interview with Marie Kondo and I have twice declined. I am not a believer. I just don’t subscribe to her methods," he said.

"This whole business of 'sparking joy.' I have a huge number of books; do they ALL spark joy? Roget’s Thesaurus does not spark joy. Am I going to get rid of it? NO."

He reckons the show is "very slow", saying: "I watched three minutes of the first episode and thought, 'I can't take this anymore.' But then friends and colleagues said you should really try it; it’s actually a good show."

"So I thought I’m going to watch the episode with the two gay guys, each is a writer, they have a ton of books, and they want help getting rid of the books. It took me four or five sessions to get through that episode. I could only take so much of her!"

"I learned NOTHING that helped me with this whole process. But I did learn this: At one point when she’s arriving in the morning and they act like they’ve never seen each other before even though they were just here yesterday. It’s day 11, I would have thrown myself on my sword if Marie Kondo was coming to my apartment and it was day 11 of this. Let’s speed it up, people!"

Hey, we know we can always count on Tim to be honest, and obv Marie's methods aren't going to be for everyone. We still love them both though!
