On tonight’s episode of Project Runway the designer’s skills are on display and their endurance put to the test. A physical race gets underway pushing everyone to their limits and some too far. Keep reading to find out what happens!
The Top 12 designers on Project Runway are Anthony Ryan Auld, Anya Ayoung-Chee, Becky Ross, Bert Keeter, Bryce Black, Cecilia Motwani, Danielle Everine, Joshua McKinley, Kimberly Goldson, Laura Kathleen, Olivier Green, and Viktor Luna.
After receiving a note to put on athletic wear, the remaining contenders head to the New Balance Track and Field Center at The Armory. There, host and judge Heidi Klum and mentor Tim Gunn tell the participants that they will be divided into four teams of three. Meanwhile, Cecilia is struggling with the results from last week’s decision. Ultimately, she tells Heidi and Tim that she doesn’t feel comfortable staying in the competition and taking someone else’s spot so she leaves!
The designers now need to run around the track and the top four will be the team leaders. Joshua comes in first, Bryce comes in second, Anthony Ryan comes in third and Viktor comes in fourth. While running, Olivier takes a tumble and hurts his knee. Paramedics show up and patch him back up. It’s now time for the team captains to select their team members but Heidi and Tim announce a twist. One of the designers previously eliminated can come back for a second chance! Josh Christensen is selected to return. “Team Joshua” includes Anya, Joshua and Becky; “Team Bryce” includes Danielle, Bryce and Kimberly; “Team Anthony” includes Anthony, Laura and Bert; and Team Viktor includes Josh, Viktor and Olivier.
Heidi tells the designers that their challenge this week is to make a look that can be paired with her New Balance sneaker line which includes denim and suede fabrics. The designers will be working with both. Heidi also announces that the winning look will be manufactured and sold on Amazon.com.
Tim brings the designers to get the materials they need and to begin their sketches. Next, it’s time to create their designs. Some of the teams struggle to work together. Racing against the clock, the designers hurry to make last minute touches before their time is up.
After the judges viewed the “looks” they have to discuss who they think embraced the challenge and who fell short. Heidi says since this is her challenge, she has chosen to select Viktor’s motorcycle jacket and Josh’s Maxi dress both as the winners of the challenge they have immunity for next week’s challenge and of course their looks will be manufactured and sold on Amazon.com. The judges then picked Danielle and Anthony Ryan to be in the bottom two. After the judges deliberated, they decided to send Danielle home.
