Over the years,Â Project Runway has seen its fair share of interesting and memorable characters, but there are two contestants that stand a bit above the rest: season 1′s Austin Scarlett and season 2′s Santino Rice. The two eccentric fashion designers are teaming up for a new reality show on Lifetime. Keep reading for more details on what these two are up to…
Austin Scarlett and Santino Rice were two of the original stars fromÂ Project Runway. On season 1, the makeup wearing Austin Scarlett quickly became a fan favorite with his eccentric personality, fabulous taste in fashion, and excellent design aesthetic. Although he didn’t win the reality competition, he has returned in subsequent seasons to share his unique style. In season 2, Santino Rice wowed the judges at the audience with his great taste, hilarious Tim Gunn impersonation, and unusual take on fashion. He finished in third place but has remained a fan favorite through the years as well.
Not surprisingly, Austin Scarlett and Santino Rice are partnering up for another reality TV show adventure. The pair will be co-starring on a Lifetime reality show called On the Road With Austin & Santino. The men will travel across America to small towns and give makeovers to women in need. A statement for the show says the duo willÂ â€œtravel to and immerse themselves in the culture of small towns across America to create new, dream-come-true looks for special women in unique situations as they celebrate such life milestones as anniversaries, birthdays, balls, graduations and bachelorette parties.”
On the Road With Austin & Santino debuts on Lifetime on July 29th, following the season 8 premiere of Project Runway.
