Project Runway, which received its seventh consecutive Emmy nomination for reality competition series, has produced several fashion designers who have gone on to successful careers following the show.
“People love watching talented people and they love the creativity and it’s something that not everyone has and so you aspire to be like them,” said Heidi Klum, a longtime host and exec producer of the show. “It’s the same with singers, which is why it’s so successful. I think deep down inside, we all think we have a good voice in the shower or in the car. I feel like you watch things like that and you think, ‘This is amazing what people can do you with their talent.’ ”
The show is filming its ninth season, and while the cast was “jumping up and down” about this year’s nom, Klum did admit there was some bittersweetness as they have to kick someone off the show tonight.
