'Project Runway' : Christian Wins Audience Award! Will He Win the Whole Show?

If the Golden Globes are considered an Oscar predictor, is Bravo’s Audience Award a good barometer to gauge this year’s Project Runway winner?

We’re referring to Christian Siriano, of course, who, in a bit of an upset, gamely claimed the $10,000 payday that came with being voted fan favorite on Wednesday’s reunion special. (Last season’s prize-winner Michael Knight presented him with the big, fat check!) After reliving some of his fiercest moments in a fun montage, the spunky, pint-sized designer accepted the honor. Known for his snarky asides and amazing talent, the young designer is certainly less endearing than, say, Chris Marsh or Sweet P, but the fans love him.

While the collection the finalists show under the tents at Fashion Week — and not personality — will ultimately determine the winner in a final runway showdown, many are banking on Siriano to add the $100,000 prize to the $10,000 he just picked up. — Brian Orloff
