Sources Claim Staph Undid Designer

Biased Boot On ‘Runway’?

Spoiler alert!

Anonymous sources claim one of Project Runway‘s many gay stars, Jack Mackenroth, got booted after developing an HIV Staph infection. Mackenroth, who will be making a cameo in the Sex and The City movie, claims otherwise.

One snitch tells Gatecrasher Mackenroth told them he gets booted in the fifth episode after developing the infection:

He is saying he got kicked off not because he lost a challenge, but because he got a ‘staph’ infection and said his face blew up like the kid from Mask.

That would have to be a pretty nasty infection.

Mackenroth, meanwhile, told Bravo he didn’t spill the unsavory beans. A flack sent out “his words”: “People will say things about me whether they know me or not. Those were not my words and are fictitious.” We’ll just have to wait until episode five to find out…

    Printing “Spoiler Alert” as the first sentence of an article where the headline is about a designer being kicked out and that runs along side a gigantic photo of one of the designers is a bit pointless, don’t you think?

  • Dawster

    Not really… it’s a pic of Mackenroth, and by his own words he gets kicked off on “episode five”…

    that’s a pretty big spoiler in the Project Runway world.

    Yes, which is why Spoiler Alert should have been printed in huge words in the headline…you can figure the whole thing out before you ever get to the words Spoiler Alert.

    Dlisted said he looks like “Jim Carrey’s wax figure at Madam Tussauds”. I think I’d have to agree.

    There’s a word for people like you David! I’ts not used in high society, outside of a kennel! Hating someone for what they have that you clearly do not is more telling of the kind of person you are. Don’t hate!

    Since when is it considered “hate” to compare someone who is obviously mugging for the camera to rubber-faced Jim Carey. Maybe you should consider cutting back on your dosage of Prozac – it might help you rediscover your sense of humor.
