Running out of time on yet another task meant curtains for arrogant competitor Jason Troisi on this week's 'Project Runway' (Thu., 9PM on LIFETIME). During this week's Marie Claire challenge, the hat-wearing reprobate employed "user-friendly" safety pins instead of buckles on his spacey silver "infinity" dress and left gaping holes both in his outfit and in the audience's confidence in his sense of fashion and good taste.
"It's not working," said Marie Claire editor in chief Joanna Coles during the photo shoot. "It looks like a mistake, or a hole in the dress." Still, the designer from Greenwich, CT, insisted that these place-holding pins merely allowed the dress to be styled in many different ways, and fiddled with the negative fabric space while his model appeared to be wishing herself into oblivion.
Despite these setbacks, his self-assuredness remained high: "The judges have to look past these little closures because I'm not prototype Jack," Jason maintained. "I can't pop things out."
Nevertheless, Jason landed in a poorly-constructed heap down at the bottom two, and ultimately was swept out of the competition. "We were hoping to see more from you -- something more impressive," tsked Heidi. "But again, we got an unfinished mess."
