Bravo has signed four major sponsors for Project Runway 4, and they will all get “on-air integration as well as significant online presence,” Mediaweek reports. And “each sponsor brand will receive unique positioning.” In other words, get ready for some product placement.
L’Oréal, TRESemmé, and Elle return as sponsors, with TRESemmé providing “the grand prize of $100,000.” Besides the two personal care companies, Bluefly.com and Saturn are the other two brands that will be whored throughout the series. L’Oréal is giving $10,000 to a viewer’s choice prize, while new sponsor Bluefly is paying for the $10,000 “fan favorite” prize.
In addition, Bravo “has also finalized sponsorship packages with an endemic (sewing-machine manufacturer Brother International) and a packaged-goods purveyor (The Hershey Company),” Mediaweek reports.
