Heidi Klum makes around $1.6 million a year for Project Runway, which is getting a “facelift”
When Project Runway 6 debuts on Lifetime in November, it will look different, according to its host. Lifetime has insisted that the show will stay the same, even with new producers, and the network’s president, Andrea Wong, told Broadcasting and Cable today, “We think it’s just fine the way it is.”
But that’s not what Heidi Klum thinks. In a Forbes video interview, she said, “it will have definitely a facelift. The look of the show will change a little bit, and maybe we will add some catchphrases that will be a little bit different. But I think it will be more of a facelift. I think the runway will be a little bit different, the room that we are usually in, it will not be at Parsons here in New York, we’re moving to Los Angeles, so I think it will have a little bit more of a Hollywood flair.”
Forbes also reports that Heidi Klum made $14 million last year, but “earns maybe $1.3 million a year as host and $350,000 as executive producer” of Project Runway.
She complained to the magazine that the show’s $500,000 per-episode budget means “we don’t have the money to do anything!”—although soon the producers will get $1 million an episode, perhaps encouraging someof those changes.
