Heidi Klum & Tim Gunn, Project Runway – Lifetime
It’s hard to keep the same hosts in place for nearly 10 years, but it’s a whole lot easier with a duo as dynamic as Heidi and Tim. We’re talking chemistry here. Their critiques of contestants’ hits and flops are often right on the money, and whether it’s Gunn’s appreciation for the difficulty of finding flattering plus-size outfits or Klum’s ability to make a supermodel seem normal (could they really be?)—these two just click with America. Even those of us wearing last year’s Levis.
Nigel Barker, The Face – Oxygen Media – Barker knows a little something about the subject, having been both in front of the camera as a model and behind it as a photographer.
Alton Brown, Next Iron Chef: Redemption – Food Network – Food nerds unite. Alton is your leader.
Billy Eichner, Funny or Die’s Billy on the Street – Fuse – Good news, Billy. You get to live. You really are funny out on the street asking pedestrians questions about pop culture.
Jeff Foxworthy, The American Bible Challenge – GSN – Foxworthy keeps this game show funny, and it’s a topic he’s very familiar with.
Robert Irvine, Restaurant Impossible – Food Network – Irvine scolds and skewers people who have absolutely no clue how to run a restaurant. But it’s because he cares.
Curtis Stone, Top Chef Masters – Bravo – There is a reason the Aussie chef is everywhere. He’s got personality—and everyone wants to have dinner with him.
