Despite it being her first week without a top 3 score, Erin continues to lead the pack in our predictions to win. Last week she was called “safe,” making room for Rik Villa (challenge winner) and Roberi Parra to notch their first high scores of the season and Alex, now in second place in our predictions, to notch his second high score and first runner-up placement. After a challenge win in the second week, Laurence earned another “safe” score last week and holds her third place position in our rankings.

This week the “Project Runway” designers will have their first team challenge of the season, a curveball that has the potential for putting a season’s strongest competitors in vulnerable positions. If paired with weaker designers, Erin or any of the other leaders could easily find themselves in danger of going home, especially if they’re unable to work together and/or throw each other under the bus.

Erin could be the most vulnerable considering the hate Cornelius Ortiz has already thrown her way this season. After Erin won her second challenge in week three, Cornelius vocalized both to the group and to the camera in his confessional that she shouldn’t have won and is perhaps being overrated by the judges. Though it would put Erin in a dangerous position, I’m hoping the two do end up on the same team just to see their bubbling rivalry come to a boil.
