Project Runway Profile: Jerell Scott

at . Comments

Jerell Scott doesn't lack confidence.

The Project Runway contestant recently said: "I'll probably be the most memorable character on the show.”

We don't know about that - but we do know Scott is off to a solid start on season five of the series.

His experience as a model led him into design, as Jerell has said this career made it almost necessary for him to combine the two fashion worlds.

"I didn't have money to buy nice clothes, so I started reconstructing stuff and eventually got a sewing machine,” Scott said.

Clearly, inspiration took hold of the Houston native, as he moved from the runway to behind the scenes, designing clothes for fellow models.
