  • Seriously, how many “All Stars” have been on “Project Runway”…there have only been ten seasons! I barely even recognized half of the cast in season two. Having a second spin-off series with watered-down judges and competition is really hurting the franchise.

    • So true. I love me some Runway, but it’s getting embarrassing.

      • I love it too, but hate how they make the episodes an hour and 30 mins.

        • Fast forward through the hair and makeup and you save 15 minutes! And, seriously, why does this show still exist? It’s even more rigged than the regular Runway and it doesn’t have Tim Gunn!

  • Carolyn Murphy started out very stiff, but she turned out to be a very good and likable host, so it makes me sad to know she’s been replaced.

    • I agree, I really ended up liking Carolyn Murphy and am not a fan of Alyssa Milano so see this as step in the wrong direction.

  • Maybe it should be called Second Chance as opposed to All Stars. Using the term All Stars after the first season is comical.
