Producer Eli Holzman: “A few years after Project Runway premiered I called the dean at Parsons to ask whether the show was having a positive impact on them. I was shocked by her answer. She told me their enrollment had practically doubled, and that, industry-wide, design programs had seen a huge influx of new students.”
#10 (my personal and probs everyone's favorite):
"Project Runway introduced the world to Tim Gunn."
