We were introduced to the Project Runway season 9 cast in the “Road to the Runway” special on July 28th. During this time, all 20 of the contestants were introduced to us. Love them or hate them, they’re who we have for the next however many episodes they remain! Here’s a rundown of their names (and how to spell them), ages, hometown’s and current residences.

Five Pieces of Project Runway Season 9 Trivia

Our youngest cast member is Gunnar Deatherage at age 21.

Our oldest cast member is Bert Keeter at age 57.

Just two of the cast members were born in the same place they current live – that’d be Danielle Everine (the feminist Amelia Earheart type) and Laura Kathleen.

But how about New York City? Five of the Project Runway season 9 cast members currently live there.

As for international appeal, Anya Ayoung-Chee, Cecila Motwani, David Chum, Oliver Green and Viktor Luna were all born outside of the U.S.
