Sophomore Season of the Hit Bravo Series Premieres in December
FansofRealityTV.com – Wouldn’t you like to be a Pepper too? Although one hopes none of the sixteen new designer-hopefuls will be as villainous as the Machiavellian Ms. Pepper (or if they are, at least have the talent this time to back it up), anyone could be the next Wicked Wendy on season two of Bravo’s successful Emmy-Nominated Series when it returns with an all-new season on Wednesday, December 7 at 10pm ET/PT.
The sixteen contestants with designs on becoming the next top fashion designer are:
Raymundo Baltazar, 24 -- Los Angeles, CA
Kara Janx, 29 -- Johannesburg, South Africa
Chloe Dao, 33 -- Houston, TX
Emmett McCarthy, 42 -- New York, NY
Marla Duran, 51 -- Allentown, PA
Santino Rice, 30 -- Los Angeles, CA
Kirsten Ehrig, 37 -- Los Angeles, CA
Heidi Standridge, 25 -- Atlanta, GA
Diana Eng, 22 -- Jacksonville, FL

Andrae Gonzalo, 32 -- Los Angeles, CA
Daniel Vosovic, 24 -- New York, NY
Zulema Griffin, 28 -- New York, NY
John Wade, 24 ? Los Angeles, CA
During the thirteen-episode run, contestants will participate in weekly challenges testing their skills in style and design at the famed Parsons The New School For Design in New York City. In the end, however, only three will go mano à mano with their own lines debuting at New York Fashion Week in February.
robotmodel Heidi Klum will resume her position as host, accompanied again on the panel by respected fashion designer Michael Kors and Elle fashion director Nina Garcia. Tim Gunn, Chair of the Parsons The New School For Design, will also be back to see the contestants through each of the weekly challenges.
The winner receive $100,000 in seed money for their own line, as well as a 2007 Saturn SkyRoadster, both provided by Saturn. The winner's designs will also be featured in a spread in ELLE, photographed by a name AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL fans are very familiar with, Gilles Bensimon. The prize package also includes a mentorship from the Banana Republic Design Team.
