Well OP, I'm inclined to agree with them. That's hardly something to faint over. Although if it was a "What Not To Wear" type show, you've been insulted by them twice. You're apparently poorly dressed AND a liability.

I feel your pain OP. A free wardrobe with no mistake items that make you look 12 or retarded, is a simple fantasy of mine. Oh and to meet Suzanna and Trinny... *swoon*

^People never seem to think about those things. Nothing is free in USA. If it is free, you're getting taxed a ton of money. That's why if someone gives away a vehicle, you ask them to write down that they sold it for $100, give or take, on the pink slip so the buyer/receiver only has to pay minimum taxes. Otherwise, the DMV determines how much the vehicle is worth and taxes the shit out of the receiver of the free vehicle.

If it's a prize, it becomes "additional income" which could potentially boost you up into a higher tax bracket and you'll pay your regular tax percentage on i (so if you fall in the 20% bracket, you'll pay 20% of the prize value). That's it. If it's a gift, the IRS website says gift taxes are paid by the donor, unless the donee agrees otherwise.

They don't know your tax bracket when you get the prize. If you win a car, then you have to pay the tax on the value of the car before you can take the car. You can't take it and sell it to pay the tax afterwards since you have to pay the tax upfront.

That's their loss; you deserve a style!

4 - You can insult my wardrobe, me, my mother, whatever you want if you're going to buy me a new wardrobe! Clothes have the least financial priority in my world, so I often look rather...um..."creatively" attired.

I'm kind of confused by the OP and why they fainted. If OP knows he/she doesn't dress well and wants to change it, then why doesn't he/she change it? Sure clothes can be expensive, but if you're really embarrassed of your clothing to the point where the prospect of someone buying you better clothes makes you faint, I think that's a sign OP should probably put more effort into their attire. And hell, there are plenty of cheap stores and thrift shops that have nice looking clothes for a bargain price. You don't have to spend big to look nice.

Well, my expert opinion is to not hang around people who judge you based on what you wear instead of who you are. For all you know, that seemingly homeless man could actually be a brilliant scientist who just so happens to really, really like dirt.

#46: That's true. I didn't think of that. Still, if OP is really that bothered by how he/she dresses, then they can always get the opinions of others, or look in fashion magazines, or even look online at what are the latest trends this season. I mean, clothing isn't that important, but OP is clearly bothered by how he/she dresses and wants to change it.

48, do you know my family, because you just described both my mother and father... They're horticulturists and mom is also a biochemist and geneticist. They both really, really like dirt lol!

59 - Or, you know, OP was excited because they're getting a lot of something for free and get to be on television. Perhaps their wardrobe doesn't bug them at all.

@42 It doesn't say that OP doesn't like their clothes and she was not embarrassed. It says she was so excited she fainted. She could've fainted due to the excitement of getting a whole new wardrobe for free or the excitement of being on a television show.

wow. i would feel insulted if someone wanted me for such a show. but if you don't have the money and therefore have to wear old clothes from your siblings or someone else, i can understand your excitement.
