Now I’ve clearly had my fair share of fashion mishaps on the show, but I don’t think anyone took the cake like the cinched-smock-number Sarah had to wear as punishment. Jenni also had to wear the “marshmallow jumpsuit,” and she worked it all things considering. There is a stack of one dozen XXL paint suits in our utility closet just waiting for a mistake to be made.
I was worried about how Jeff was going to react when the tile shortage at Buena Park happened. He gave me the responsibility of the entire tile order and any mishap to occur would have been my fault. It was one of the first major responsibilies he had given me so I didn’t want to disappoint him. I needed to find the tile the client liked, stay within the budget, have it sent to be cut the way it was designed, organize delivery, etc. Vlad had given me the dimensions and I ordered an additional 15% extra from what he provided. Considering he was the contractor, I assumed he would know what he was talking about and how to properly operate a tape measure. But as we saw in a previous episode with the television niche above the Buena Park fireplace being the wrong size, that clearly isn’t the case.
Trace, I really like you. Jeff did well in chosing you as an Assistant. I like Sarah also. I wasn't sure at first because she seemed like a ditz Paris Hilton but she fits perfect, like you do. I have watched this show from day one and the cast is the very best now. Always stay loyal to Jeff and show respect to Jenni and Sarah and Zoyla. Good Luck to you Trace, I'm a fan of yours!!!
Trace - Congrats on the 'A.' You're a great addition and complement to the JL crew! I only hope Andy Cohen makes sure to check the viewership and advertising dollars and give you all a raise. Cheers! Mike
Trace- Love that you are part of the Lewis team. Congrats on the A, You seem very bright and funny. Sarah is to funny and seems like a lot of fun. Hope you did'nt get into too much trouble with the tiles as I feel it was Vlads mismeasuring that caused the problem. Jenni and Zoila are wonderful, Love Deb too. Keep up the good work and you can wear those short shorts anytime!
Luv you Trace, I hope you stay on for awhile, you are a class act and I like the way you interact and carry yourself.
Trace, you did great. Anyone who can stick it out with Jeff should get an "A". I think you have real talent. Good luck to you.
I am happy for you that you didn't get into trouble, or terminated for Vlad,s tile blunder! I really think Jeff should not use Vlad's services anymore! And, lucky for you, it appears he won't. Hang in there, Trace!
Trace- You're a breath of fresh air on the show. Don't go anywhere!!! And please wears the shorts whenever you want! LOL
DO NOT GO ANYWHERE.. Not only are you so drop dead beautiful to look at, but wow, what an intelligent and fashion trendy man you are.. I enjoy any scenes you are in.. Jeffs lucky to have you and he better give you a passing grade..
Trace... Good job on the show ...however, did you figure the number of tiles needed for the floor or did you let the tile vendor do it? Calculating the amount of tile is not as easy as figuring out the square footage of the floor and dividing it by the size of the tile. Tile is not necessarily laid that way unless you have perfectly square room. Tile is laid starting at the exact middle of the floor out to the sides of the walls. This could mean that at each wall you could have maybe 7" in tile, however if you just figure by the square footage this overage would not be accounted for. Unless you were experienced in measuring for tile you would not have known this.
Does anyone answer these bio comments?
Please....did Jeff take a cruise September/October 2009?
Yes or No
What a great addition you are to the show. I hope they give you more air time this next season and take that rude, obnoxious Jett OFF! You are competent, intelligent, quirky, and adorable. I'm glad that you are there and hope they find a way to keep you. I know that this was because you were an intern with a class project, but hopefully you can continue. Thanks for a great season.
