If you're keeping track of wins this season, you know that so far, designer Ashley Nell Tipton has two. She's an enduring favorite, and that's why, when she's picked last for paintball in this week's team challenge, (over Amanda, who's been in the bottom since the beginning of the season), fans on Twitter are frustrated and zero right in the motivation.
In what world is it ok to pick Ashley LAST??? She's one of the best designers! #ProjectRunway— Marie (@AllThingsTWD410) September 4, 2015
It's gym class where the fat chick gets picked last. I'm having flashbacks to middle school. #ProjectRunway— Diana (@butterflyblob) September 4, 2015
Thin women are often more jealous of successful fat women than of successful thin women, and tonight's #ProjectRunway bares that out.— Diana (@butterflyblob) September 4, 2015
Once the team of Ashley, Candice, Laurie, Lindsay and Kelly set out to create their collection, they realize they're lacking cohesion. On his walk through the workroom, Tim tells them they "should be scared." Ashley's quiet, stinging from being picked last, and is also feeling directionless. Twitter panics, worried for her future in the competition if she continues to keep her mouth shut.
Ashley, I would have picked you!!! Step up though, don't let them shake you! #ProjectRunway— TV Creepage (@sincerelylilbee) September 4, 2015
I love Ashley but she will be thrown under the bus real quick if she doesn't speak up. #projectrunway— Marie (@AllThingsTWD410) September 4, 2015
She's my girl, but, now I'm getting annoyed at Ashley for not speaking up. Maybe its a strategy? #projectrunway— Kim F. Hall (@ProfKFH) September 4, 2015
Before the runway show, Laurie tells Ashley she thinks the other women are planning to "throw her under the bus" in front of the judges. Ashley interviews that she's fed up and that she can't trust anyone.
On the runway, not surprisingly, it's her team that's in the bottom, and Amanda, Kelly and Candice vote for her to go home. Guest judge Kelly Osbourne sees through the clique-y drama of what Tim called "the most dysfunctional team in the history of the show." (Yikes.)
On Twitter, everyone takes a deep breath when Ashley's called as safe and declares that the "mean girls" are getting what they deserve.
Blake called the other group "Mean Girls" for how they treated Ashley. Nailed it! Lol! #ProjectRunway— shell517nj (@shell517nj) September 4, 2015
In case you've been asking yourself what Ashley did to make them hate & exclude her, she was better than all of them. #projectrunway— NotTheOnlyOne (@missouttamyway) September 4, 2015
Amanda and her little clique tried throwing Ashley under the bus and look where it got you. Ha. #ProjectRunway— J. (@lovecierra7) September 4, 2015
Whew! Our girl Ashley is safe! #ProjectRunway— Melrose Plant (@melrose_planet) September 4, 2015
Why do you think the other women picked on Ashley? What did you think of the winning look? Do you think the right person went home?
