Project Runway’s Gonna Piss You Off

Tim Gunn has a message for Project Runway’s fans about the show’s new season: You may feel like screaming at the TV! The show’s fifth season premiers Wednesday on Bravo (9 p.m. ET). Tim tells People magazine:

It’s a real roller coaster, Fans are going to get mad — early! There are some big surprises: Favorites won’t be there anymore, and I can only imagine how the blogs are going to explode over some of the challenge winners. We say that each season has a different DNA and boy, is that true.

Tim gave a sneak-peek at each contestant:
*Blayne, 23:”The designers love him. His work is like his personality — exuberant. Blayne is hard to miss.”
*Daniel, 25: “He’s intense — not the workroom jokester … I called him ‘the sweater.’ As in perspiration.”
*Korto, 33 “Still waters run deep: She seems so quiet and reserved, almost reclusive. She’s not. Korto is going to tantalize people with her work.”
*Emily, 27: “Emily is effervescent, very likable and a positive presence in the workroom. She’s a sweetheart but she’s serious about what she does.”
*Jennifer, 27: “She’s very thoughtful, smart and she is driven by literature and classic films rather than the pop culture scene.”
*Jerell, 28: “He’s very generous of spirit. And by that I mean he was frequently one of the first to finish and he would help other designers. And he’s wonderfully funny.”
*Jerry, 32: “Jerry possesses an enormous amount of self-confidence. You can take that any way you want!”
*Joe, 41: “He’s our one straight guy! He’s a guy’s guy and therefore he has a place on the show that’s very unique. Joe is also a family man and talks about what his daughters would wear.
*Keith, 26: “Keith is all about innovation and experimentation. But you would never pick him out of a group as being a fashion designer — you look at him and see high school football jock.”
*Kelli, 27: “She’s our rock and roller and she embraces that role. Kelli is a little ball of fire.”
*Kenley, 25: “Kenley is our season five Project Runway Bettie Page. And she’s true to that role, let me tell you!”
*Leanne, 27: “She’s a conceptual designer. And when the audience gets to know her she’s a person I think they’re really going to be rooting for.”
*Stella, 42: “Looks are deceiving with a lot of these designers. If I saw her in a dark alley I’d run — but she’s a sweetheart!”
*Suede, 37 “Suede is a good problem-solver. And he’s current and contemporary in what he produces compared to, say, a Kenley who’s a little more retro.”
*Terri, 39: “I found her to be another excellent problem-solver. She knew how to make it work!”
*Wesley, 23: “His designs are at the higher end of sophistication … beautiful work but there’s not a lot of risk-taking.”
Hmmm. One straight guy, a Bettie Pageophile, and someone named Suede. It may piss you off, but I doubt it’ll be boring!
