It seems like as soon as Bravo gave us Project Runway back, it was snatched away again. It's been three weeks since our last new episode — and so what if two of those weeks were Christmas and New Year's Day? I was just starting to get sucked into this season!
But no matter — the show finally returns tonight with a new episode, "Eye Candy." Bravo is describing the episode as — ha ha — a "dessert storm" involving materials from a Times Square chocolate shop. It's hard to tell for sure, but from the preview clip below, it seems like most of those materials aren't fabric, which is fine by me; I've been waiting for a good grocery store/recycling plant/flower market style challenge this season. Meanwhile, Christian's ego continues to spin out of control, and Ricky cries some more (OK, I don't know that last part, but I can only assume). Really, I'm just happy ProjRun is going to be on at all.
Meanwhile, after the episode, Bravo is airing the premiere of Make Me a Supermodel, its take on modeling competition shows hosted by Niki Taylor and Tyson Beckford. The first episode is a "meet the models" special that will whittle 24 contestants down to a dozen finalists. Starting next week, viewers will be able to vote for their favorites. You can check out the bios of the wannabe models, or, to watch a preview for tonight's Project Runway, just read more.
