  • Scores are based on the Project Runway website[4]
  • ^Note 1 : Miranda originally had one of the higher scores, however the judges reconsidered their scores since she had not used enough of the challenge material (the parachute) for her dress. She was told that, despite her outfit being good, she did not follow the rules. Therefore, she could be disqualified and eliminated from the competition.
  • ^Note 2 : Before leaving the runway, Heidi told Helen she was very lucky to have had immunity that week or she could have been in the bottom two and/or out. Nina also said that she questioned Helen's win, stating she now thinks it might've all been Kate's help, who was partnered with her on the previous challenge.
  • ^Note 3 : Because Sandro was missing all three of the lowest-scoring designers (Miranda, Jeremy, and Sue) were safe.
  • ^Note 4 : Before leaving the runway, Heidi told Alexander, Bradon and Miranda that they were close to being the winning team.
  • ^Note 5 : Dom was initially called in the bottom along with Jeremy and Ken. However, the bottom three designers were given an extra hour in the workroom to make alterations to their outfit or redesign a new one. The judges gave Dom's second dress such high marks that it was named the second winner of the challenge.
