[9/21 @ 2:17 PM Editor's Note: Today's Project Runway has been canceled due to personal reasons. Apologies for the inconvenience]

Join us for a live chat with Project Runway’s latest eliminated designer Johnny Sakalis, on Monday September 21st at 3 PM ET/Noon PT.

Thursday night Johnny went (remorsefully) marching home after a failed attempt at creating a dress out of newspaper.

During his final confessional the former drug addict said of his dismissal, “giving up addiction was harder than this.”

At times it seemed Johnny wasn’t entirely present, nor completely honest. At one point during Thursday’s episode, he stopped working altogether, and instead diverted his attention to a crossword puzzle. And after a Tim Gunn critique of his first design (“it looks like it was done by a kindergartener!”) caused him to toss it out, he resorted to spinning a lie to both judges and his model about a faulty steamer “messing up” his original creation.

So what happened to Johnny? Why did he weave a woeful tale instead of just getting his work done? Find out the answer to that, and more, when he joins us Monday.

Tune in to all new episodes of Project Runway Thursday night’s at 10 PM on Lifetime.
