We're getting close to the premiere of Project Runway's fifth season, most likely its last on Bravo. And yet, up until yesterday when Bravo finally announced the new crop of contestants, all the press had been about how there was no press. Instead of the typical weeks of teasers and bus ads for this season, we've mostly been met with silence.
Granted, now we know the contestants and even the challenges. But that all came with less than three days to go before the premiere, which seems like a really short amount of time for building any sort of enthusiasm about the show. There's even been speculation that Bravo is trying to make this season of ProjRun fail so that it's damaged goods by the time it gets to Lifetime in November (though Bravo folks have said that's nuts).
For the first time since the show really started to pick up steam in its first season, I've even found myself forgetting it's going to be on! I'm still excited, somewhere deep inside of me, but I'm wondering if you're excited too — or if you're just feeling kind of blase about the whole thing.
