The reasons Jeremy was eliminated were 1. The judges think that fresh means something that size 0-2 women under 30 would wear and 2. he was kind/polite to the designers and didn't bring the drama.
Of note, Jeremy was in the bottom three two-three times, but NEVER bottom two until the last ep. Ken was in bottom two at least twice. I think the designer's reactions to him being eliminated over Ken also spoke volumes to what was going on.
On a different point - I didn't see Tim talking to Ken in this go, but I wouldn't be surprised. Personally, I think that it should be if there is a fight like that and what it entailed, he should be eliminated. I doubt it'll happen though.
