Project Runway 2′s cast revealed

Although the series doesn’t return until December, Bravo revealed the cast of Project Runway 2 this week.

As we learned in August, season one’s Daniel Franco–the first designer to be kicked off the runway–will return. He’s joined by 15 others who range in age from 22 to 51. Half of the are from LA; three are from New York.

If you’d just like to objectify them, Just Jared has assembled their head shots into a fun grid.

Also returning this season are sponsors such as Banana Republic and Elle, and they’ll be joined by new sponsors, because the series is, according to non-ironically named Miramax VP Lori Sale, “a brand’s dream. There are so many organic integration opportunities within the show and outside the show….” The winner this year gets $100,000 and a Saturn Sky Roadster, provided by show sponsor Saturn.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
