Project Runway: No Respect!
Even though he’s been in the bottom two of almost every challenge, Ricky finally felt he earned a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T after his surprise win in the last episode. But not only did his victory lack immunity, it failed to give him the runway cred he needed to silence his detractors, especially Christian.
In this week’s challenge, the designers had to create performance outfits for the sexy and dangerous divas of the WWE. Rami and Sweet P were stumped while Christian, Jillian and Chris (the night’s winner) really worked it out. But Ricky’s orange swimsuit and gold cape combo brought him back to reality and he finally got his marching orders. And in the words of Christian, there were too many “hot messes” in this competition anyway. –Shanelle Rein-Olowokere
Here are our favorite disses of the night:
4. Thoroughly frustrated with her client’s style demands, Sweet P took it out on her sparkly material comparing it to “tranny ice cream.”
3. The usually un-catty Chris channeled Christian, calling Ricky’s look “cheesy” and “not what the challenge was about.”
2. Never one to mince words, judge Nina Garcia made sure to let Rami know that not only did she hate his outfit’s color, but that his design wasn’t her favorite either.
1. And the evening’s topper? Christian declaring that Sweet P’s outfit looked “like a craft project I could have done in the first grade.”
