A nail biting finish during this tension filled challenge!

Jillian went crazy with ambition and almost derailed herself. As Nina said, there were far too many ideas happening. Furthermore, Jillian's concept was a mere denim riff on the coat that she presented to the judges in the last challenge, and it was a coat that they all loved. Didn't she fear that she would hear, "Haven't we seen this before?" Has she learned nothing from the runway eviscerations of Rami? She presented a double-breasted coat with a high collar using light-wash denim. It did not embody her brilliant tailoring abilities or her stealth-like point of view. Like Chris, Jillian was off her game. Like Chris, I'm glad she's still here.
