Is Project Runway jumping the shark? The reality show is going gangbusters with its celebrity guest judges this season, and tonight is no exception: Speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno will sit in on an Olympic-themed challenge.
Apolo is known more for his soul patch and gold medals -- not to mention the disco ball trophy from winning Dancing With The Stars -- than his fashion sense, which makes him a puzzling choice for Project Runway. Unless the designers are planning to fashion something from sequins and spandex, he's hardly an expert.
Then again, Bravo is part of the NBC Universal family, which is broadcasting the Olympics...so I guess they had to throw in some kind of Olympics plug for synergy. Because if Apolo didn't turn up on Project Runway, people might actually forget that the Olympics are airing on NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, USA and Bravo!
