Newly crowned Project Runway season 14 winner Ashley Nell Tipton has some words for Tim Gunn following his declaration that he "hated" the most recent season because most of its designers "weren't working up to their potential."
"It kind of hurts to hear that he doesn't think that we brought it," the 24-year-old San Diego, Calif. native tells E! News Sibley Scoles. "Because at the end of the day we're listening to him and we're listening to the judges, so somewhere along there someone's not doing their job."
Harsh words for the person whose role it was to champion the designers and bring out their best? Possibly, but Tipton explains that she and her competitors took the competition very seriously. "We are putting everything that we can into every episode every challenge," she says.
