Part of me is hesitant to share the email I received this week.

After hearing all the insider secrets, seeing the contestants deal with reality show fame, and the guarantee all my Thursday nights will be spent in front of the television, I almost don’t want to tell you.

But I must.

Project Runway is currently casting for season 12 (yes 12). If you don’t mind answering 20 pages of extremely personal questions, going through a psych evaluation, and spending 6 weeks filming with cameras in your face (Oh, and you’ve got some design talent), you can apply for the chance to be on the show. From the producer, “We're excited to once again offer designers the chance to show their work during New York Fashion Week, and the opportunity to win $100,000 to launch or expand their own fashion line.  The deadline to receive applications is April 8th, 2013. Applicants can learn more and download the application at http://www.bmpcasting.com/casting/pr/ and email us at prcasting@bunim-murray.com."
