In a 'Project Runway' first, not only do we have one quitter, we have two. In the first fifteen minutes, Maya realized that she's still too young to be ready to show for the finale. I found it weird because the show likes putting a mix of designers together, including people right out of school like Daniel Vosovic or Jillian Lewis. While Maya may have been using other designs as influence during the show, she would have had several months to find inspiration before the finale show. With that being said, I respect her decision and wish her the best.
The second quitter comes from one of the models. Valeria gets a high end gig. As a model, that is probably the best decision. She had moderate exposure on a television show, and managed to get a gig from a high end clientele. Take the money and run.
There are two replacements. In all fairness, the last eliminated contestant, Anthony, gets a second chance. He was the one who won Heidi's Marie Claire challenge, so he probably had the knowledge of what Heidi wanted to begin with. The model replacement for Seth Aaron was Cerri.
