Season 3 Applicants: Do You Have What It Takes?

The official Project Runway application for Season 3 is 20 pages long. Among other things, producers want to know if you can sew, cut, sketch and make patterns.

But haven't we learned after two seasons that there is much more involved? For instance:

Can you cry and cut? Can you sing? Do impressions? Dish the dirt on your competitors in private interviews? Are you expressive? REALLY expressive? Willing to wear a humiliating uniform or costume? Can you hold your liquor?

Okay PR fans, what other "qualifications" should Bravo be looking for?

Do cool accents?

Have multiple personalities?

Get people from hating you to loving you within one episode?

Perhaps Andre and Nick will be among the "interviewers" at the casting like Kara Saun and Jay were this season. The producers probably want to be aware any of relationship the applicant may have with anyone having some sort of influence on who is cast for the show. If this is the case, then if Kara is not one of the interviewers, any relationship with her would be irrelevant. I don't know.. it's just a guess.

It may be useful to be able to use "exotic" materials in designs- plants have been done..but fruits and vegetables are still open for consideration.

Also, you should be able to make a dress different types of professionals... ice skaters, mail carriers are passe, but waiters and water skiers may need your expertise!

Must be able to do interpretive dance while using revolving doors.

Must have own charm gun.

Must be able to resist physical violence towards Tim Gunn when told to "Make it Work" for the 53rd time.

Must be able to read disparaging personal attacks on various blogs and somehow maintain dignity and self-worth.

Must be able to resist the whickety-whack!

Must be able to resist following "bliss" anywhere...

Have you ever asked for a walk-off or subsequently felt the need to ask for one?

Do you look good in hot pink skating bloussons? We promise it will have nothing to do with elimination...

OMFG. I stopped reading when I got to the question about the Rx meds. You have to disclose that you take Allegra-D? WHATever.

I understand asking if you have any medical conditions (epilepsy/diabetes/anaphylaxis) that might be relevant to accommodating those with special medical needs, but full disclosure for a FASHION REALITY show is outrageous.

Questions that should've been on the application:

How many of the voices in your head talk to you on a regular basis?

Write a 1500 word essay on additional ways we can exploit your weaknesses. Be creative.


p.s. to @: Re: "Must be able to read disparaging personal attacks on various blogs and somehow maintain dignity and self-worth." Indeed. I hear ya on that one! Sheesh.
