Santino Rice, the season two “Project Runway” contestant whose Tim Gunn impression made him a star, is heading back to TV — and partnering with another “Runway” contestant, Austin Scarlett.
Seriously — “Scarlett” and “Santino.” You can’t make that up.
The Santino/Austin series will follow the quirky duo as they cross the country finding women in need of a fashion makeover. Lifetime is also developing a show starring “Runway” host Heidi Klum and her pop star hubby Seal — but that show is in an earlier stage of development.
Both have used their “Runway” fame as a jumping board to careers in fashion as well as additional TV work. Rice has appeared on “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” while Scarlett has been hired as a fashion correspondent for multiple networks.
“Project Runway” alum Rich Bye, who worked on the show early in its run, is on board to exec produce the show.
Bye is no stranger to series starring “Runway” alums, having worked on Bravo’s “Project Jay,” featuring season one winner Jay McCarroll, and the Bravo pilot “Laura Bennett,” starring the season three contestant.
But seriously, has anybody seen Andrae? Where’s Andrae?
