What Not To Wear: Wannabe Premieres On TLC

September 29, 2005 11:01 PM by Joe Blackmon

In a two-hour special titled WHAT NOT TO WEAR: Wannabe premiering Friday, September 30, from 9-11 PM (ET/PT) on TLC, WHAT NOT TO WEAR fashion experts Stacy London and Clinton Kelly, hair stylist Nick Arrojo and beauty specialist Carmindy pan the country for talented individuals who think they’ve got what it takes to make the world a better “looking” place.

TLC conducted a nationwide search for up-and-coming, aspiring fashion stylists, hairstylists and make-up artists for the newest special this fall, with more than 1,200 applications flooding in from all parts of the country, walks of life and backgrounds from wannabe fashion gurus hoping to make it big.  From an heir to an oil fortune to the sweetheart who won’t let you down, our wannabes all share the same goal – to change the world, one fashion faux pas at a time.

These fashion hopefuls have eagerly waited in the wings for their chance to shine, and TLC has offered these wannabe’s the one-time opportunity to become the next WHAT NOT TO WEAR dream team. The wannabes   submitted a video clip of themselves in action, explaining why they’re the perfect match. Our WHAT NOT TO WEAR experts chose 12, comprising three teams of four, who were whisked away to New York City to compete in a three-day style-driven challenge.  Stacy and Clinton then watched and analyzed the teams’ every move and will make a final decision at the end of the show as to who will be crowned future fashionistas.  The winning team is afforded the opportunity of a lifetime and is given a four-page spread in Redbook Magazine with celebrity photographer Jack Guy, as well as $5,000 each.

The featured wannabes are:

Kristina Diegnan, Gainesville, Virginia
Danielle Scott, New York, New York
Mary Jane Clark, Bartlett, Illinois
Raina Kerman, New York, New York
Shawn D. Florence, Fort Worth, Texas
Alex Dunphy, Seattle, Washington
Clark Hastings, Greeley, Colorado
Emily Kate Warren, New York
Tracie Rhodes Edwards, Los Angeles
Kylee Cook, Cleveland, Ohio
Jerome Gonzalez, Henderson, Nevada
Brig Van Osten, Simi Valley, California
Kabra Moss, Roseville, California

    I enjoyed the Wannabe’s episode! I thought all who were involved to be extremely talented. Kabra, you and Tracois should have won that hair and make-up challenge. And your contributor ended up looking the best by far! You did a wonderful job on her hair! Good luck to you in the future!

    My mom should be on this show because she never takes the time to care for herself. She is always thinking of others, and on the side she is raising four kids.

    I am sick and tired of this TLC: “What not to wear”. Because they are always talking about women. Why can’t they use more men like that. We, men, have a feel too! That is unfair. I am sick of those two hosts!

    I love the show,but I like to know why are most of the women you’ve help are caucasian? It would be nice to see you style a black woman.

    Why do you always have to have
    young girls on your show? I’m in my fifty’s look great. I work out.
    I’m better looking than half of the young women you have on your
    show. Why can’t you put a gorgeous
    thin dame like me on your show.
    You are so archaic to think that your best market is with the youth. We young fifty year old women spend a lot of money on clothes too. Sincerely, Julia Nash
