They're bringing 'Runway' back

January 05, 2012|By Dana Moran | RedEye

We were so excited about Thursday's premiere of "Jersey Shore: Return to Skanklandia" that we almost forgot that it's time for "Project Runway: All Stars"! The good: More time with Austin Scarlett and Mondo. The bad: Heidi Klum, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia are replaced with new judges, and Tim Gunn is replaced as mentor by some chick we've never heard of. Still, have your DVR at the ready -- NAME TK TK TK was kicked off in the first round, and there's more chopping to come.

Austin Scarlett

How he finished: Fourth place in Season 1

Remember him for: Being generally fabulous and having his spot in the finale stolen by Wendy Pepper, one of the worst reality TV villains of all time.

Kara Janx

How she finished: Fourth place in Season 2

Remember her for: Having a great South African accent and an even better talent for designing wrap dresses.

Elisa Jimenez

How she finished: 10th place in Season 4

Remember her for: Being super-nutty. And by super-nutty, we mean she used herself to measure clothes instead of the mannequin, and may have been from another planet.

Sweet P

How she finished: Fifth place in Season 4

Remember her for: Having a super-cutesy aesthetic that did not at all reflect her biker-ish, tattooed exterior. Also, her Levi's challenge dress was a-dorable.

Rami Kashou

How he finished: Second place in Season 4

Remember him for: Draping! For the love of God, so much draping! Seriously though, Rami's work is beautiful.

Jerell Scott

How he finished: Fourth place in Season 5

Remember him for: Shockingly not making it to Bryant Park. Jerell's designs were awesome all season -- and he had a much better attitude than certain finalists ...

Kenley Collins

How she finished: Third place in Season 5

Remember her for: Being a raging fire-lizard of death. If you can't get along with Tim Gunn, there's something seriously wrong with you.

Gordana Gehlhausen

How she finished: Fourth place in Season 6

Remember her for: She's the oldest designer on this season, and was criticized at one point in her season for lack of creativity, but the Yugoslavian kept a good attitude.

Anthony Williams

How he finished: Fifth place in Season 7

Remember him for: Being brought back on the show after being kicked off, winning that challenge -- and then getting kicked off the following week. Ouch.

Mila Hermanovski

How she finished: Third place in Season 7

Remember her for: Squeezing into the finale after the judges made her compete against fourth-place Jay Nicolas Sario for the last slot at Bryant Park.

April Johnston

How she finished: Fifth place in Season 8

Remember her for: Well, according to her Lifetime profile, she loves taxidermy and Double Stuf Oreos, which we really don't want to see combined.

Michael Costello

How he finished: Fourth place in Season 8

Remember him for: Being called a cheater and a crier -- a lot -- which really is a wonderful "Project Runway" combination. To be fair, there were many tears.

Mondo Guerra

How he finished: Second place in Season 8

Remember him for: Being completely ROBBED of the crown by the judges in the final runway show. If Mondo doesn't win, Lifetime probably will see a riot outside its offices.
