Tim Gunn gets crazy power on Project Runway 12

Project Runway‘s 12th season will give the series’ breakout star, Tim Gunn, more power than he’s ever had before: a role during the judging, including the ability to rat out the contestants’ behavior in the workroom, and the ability to save one contestant at some point.

Lifetime announced that “Gunn will join Klum and the judges to watch the runway show, answer questions the judges have about what transpired in the workroom and give them an opportunity to physically examine the workmanship of each design,” in addition to getting the power “to ‘rescue’ one designer during course of the season he feels deserves a second chance.”

In addition, the 15 cast members will be joined by either Ra’mon-Lawrence Coleman (from season 6), Valerie Mayen (season 8), or Kate Pankoke (season 11) who was chosen by viewers.

The press release does not mention the team format introduced last season, so perhaps it has been abandoned.
