Why did Tim Gunn leave Project Runway? Recently, the former host discussed his reasons for leaving the Bravo TV show, Austin360 reports.
As reported earlier, Gunn, Heidi Klum, and judge Zac Posen have left the long-running fashion series ahead of its 17th season. The show recently moved back to its original network, Bravo, after spending 11 seasons on Lifetime.
Here’s the full details from Austin360:
The end of his time on “Project Runway” began in the spring. The new season was ready to go. Then he and Klum found out through young relatives by way of social media that the show was headed back to Bravo, its original home, from Lifetime. After a period of silence from the networks, their agents informed them on an offer of 60 percent less salary than they were making before. To the Bravo execs, these two idols were “old and stale.” So Gunn and Klum accepted an offer from Amazon to create a new fashion show. Details to come.”
