Someone on Season 16 of Project Runway tried a little too hard to "make it work," and ends up getting called out by Tim Gunn for cheating. The shocking moment was teased in the season trailer, and will play out on the Oct. 12 episode.
The drama began during a judging session when designer Michael walked off stage in a fit of emotion after Heidi Klum announced Claire as the winner of the challenge (and a $25,000 prize!) "This has never happened in the history of the show," Tim said. Michael doubled down on his frustrations backstage, telling producers, "I came to play fair and there's no fairness in this game." Unfortunately, we have to wait another week to see what goes down.
As we saw in the promo, an angry Tim says, "This is cheating, it all has to stop." And while confronting the group of designers, he adds, "This entire thing disgusts me. It was unprofessional, unseemly, atrocious."

However, Project Runway loves to be tricky with their trailer editing, so we'll have to wait and see what really happens between Michael, Claire, and the rest of the cast. Tune in next week at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime!
