A frequent reality-show pitfall, the team challenge, proved the undoing of Minneapolis designer Raul Osorio on Thursday night on Lifetime's "Project Runway," the Pioneer Press reports.

He and a partner had to design a dress worthy of an appearance on a Hollywood red carpet, and their effort failed to wow the judges.

Here's a little more detailed look at what happened during the episode.

The 27-year-old Minneapolis designer was featured on the 10th season of the show, which pits 16 designers against each other. Learn a little more about his influences here.

Osorio was the fifth Minnesota designer to be on the show, the Pioneer Press reported.

Here's his exit interview:
