It was a shocking double elimination on Thursday night’s episode of Project Runway. But nobody was more shocked than Tu following the judges’ comments that they didn’t know who he was as a designer and that he had gotten lost in the competition. Take the jump to see what Tu had to say about his elimination.
According to Lifetime, Tu said he didn’t expect this week’s episode to be a double elimination. But he thought the judges’ decision was fair because he and Kate were a team and they both needed to take responsibility for the look and design of their dress.
And while he admits he really doesn’t feel like the dress was his, he said he and Kate collaborated and agreed on the design and silhouette.
But the judges didn’t like the dress and when it came time for their critique, Heidi said it looked like Tu’s voice was not being heard. She felt like the dress looked old-fashioned, was really Kate’s design, and that he had just helped her make it. “We don’t know who you are as a designer and we feel like you’re getting lost in the competition,” Heidi said.
Tu totally disagreed. “They say I am lost. Come on, they know my style,” he said referring to previous challenges before saying this dress looked like a Couture and he was really proud of the design.
In the end, Tu said that even though he has a lot to do to prove he’s a great designer, he thinks he will still come out on top. “I feel like I’m going to make the best collection of everyone,” he said. “They’re going to be wowed.”
