Lifetime has three videos online of the future-contestant doing things that wouldn't appear in a sex tape, like showing off her booze shelf, her workspace, and her surprisingly demure closet. But she's already setting the stage for the backlash: In her Q&A on the site, she name drops the pageant a few times (the first garment she ever made was a gray jumpsuit for Miss Universe), so it's likely to be a topic of conversation on the show. We don't imagine prim-and-proper Tim Gunn thinking of her too fondly after that erupts.
