CATWALK OF SHAME Klum

Without even the aid of a Dateline exposé, Bravo went and exposed the darker side of Project Runway. In attempt to butch up what's been dubbed the gayest season ever, Today Show anchor and former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber showed up as the inspiration for a menswear design challenge. There was no fawning and crying over Barber for being an alleged fashion icon (mostly because no one but Kevin, a.k.a. the Straight Guy, knew who he was), and so the designers had to actually get creative for a change. Unfortunately, that "creativity" translated to some of the freakiest shit to ever walk down the runway (outside of America's Next Top Model challenges).

And come they did. The only thing missing was blood on the design room floor. Jack led the fray of designers using his shorts as a pattern to help make their clothes. Rami held onto his integrity (whatever) and didn't use a pattern, instead opting to design a boring outfit that has already retired to a time-share in Boca.
