Andrae Gonzalo was from season 2. Santino Rice did an impression of Tim Gunn saying “Where’s Andrae?” It was one of the funniest moments in Project Runway history. Andrae made it pretty far in the competition but he is most remembered for being very emotional.
Kayne Gillaspie was from season 3. His style was more pageant queen than high fashion. He won the “Fit for a Queen” challenge and designed an evening gown for Tara Conner, Miss USA 2007 to wear at the Miss Universe Pageant.
Uli Herzner was first runner-up in season 3. Uli’s designs are usually flowy, colorful prints inspired by Miami.

Althea Harper was the first runner-up in Season 6. Althea looks like a model herself. She is 28 and from Dayton, Ohio.
Emilio Sosa was the first runner-up in Season 7. He had more wins in his season than any other designer but, in the end, he lost to Seth Aaron.

Ivy Higa was from season 8. She was most remembered for her opinionated attitude and contempt for Michael C. during her season.
