Was It Ping's Time to Be Auffed?

Was It Ping's Time to Be Auffed?

I thought Ping had promise. Her favorite designers are Issey Miyake and Hussein Chalayan; maybe she would emerge as the avant-garde contender. But after last week, I was over her.

This week's challenge was to create a signature couture piece. Historical creations by Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent, and Madame Gres at the Metropolitan Museum of Art served as muses. A $500 budget was allocated — the biggest in Project Runway history. On day two, the designers were thrown a curve ball and told to also create a look for less inspired by another team's couture piece.

Ping chose Jesse as her team member, to his dismay. Not only did they quarrel, but Ping churned out dysfunctional, ill-fitting clothes. Was it her time to go?

I hadn't seen the episode, but I'm of the rare folks that like being told the endings of stuff. Anyhow, I agree w/ LisaLockhart- there are way more talented designers. Ping's creations were messy and she was so chaotic to watch. Glad Jesse chose to save himself. Love Project Runway & glad it's back in NY!

Hell Yes! It wasn't fair that more talented designers were kicked off before her.

OH and I agree with the first two posts.. thankfully I did see the episode first so it wasn't spoiled for me but this has happened to me numerous times in the past so I feel their pain!

Yeah I didn't get her style at all, but then again who am I to judge?

It was her time to go, but I feel bad for her. Her model and Jesse threw her under the bus. Sure, she's inexperienced, difficult and maybe a little bit crazy, but Jesse didn't even give her a chance. He x'd her off immediately and made the situation painful to watch. Megan totally threw her under the bus. If Megan said something of that sort to a real designer, she would never work again. She needs to realize that models like her are a dime a dozen.
