‘Project Runway’ team season contains 2 Texans, 1 from Dallas

Project Runway‘s first-ever “teams” edition features 16 designers — and two are from Texas, we learned today when the cast was revealed.

James Martinez, 29 (pictured at right) — who attended the Art Institute of Dallas — is among those competing in the show, which returns to Lifetime on Jan. 24. Also in the cast will be Daniel Esquivel, 48 (left), of Austin.

No clear word yet on who the gay contestants might be, but hey — it’s Project Runway. The straights just don’t show up that much.
