Project Runway returns in December and will include a familiar cast member

Project Runway 2 will debut on Bravo late this year, on Wednesday, December 7. Sometime between now and then, probably rather close to the debut, Bravo will air the “Project Jay” special, showing us what Jay’s been up to besides making bitchy remarks about everyone he encounters.

On the second season, one of the designers competing will be familiar to those who watched season one–or at least watched season one’s first episode. That’s because Daniel Franco, the first designer to ever hear Heidi Klum say “you’re out,” will return for the second season.

Daniel tells TV Guide Online that he “wasn’t really proud of my performance or my portrayal [during the first season]. It bummed me out. I was like, ‘I’m through with TV.'” But alas, he’s back, and he says that returning “felt like a bit of a redemption. I thought, ‘Yeah!’ Then I said, ‘Aw, shit, not again!'”
