as you can imagine Santino has been slightly overwhelmed with the idea that the show is airing this evening. He has received many kind messages from a lot of you and is very thankful for your support.
it appears that Santino has made quite an impressive first impression with the news media:
Santino Rice, one of many fashion professionals competing this time around, clearly came to win. (Chicago Tribune)
The next Jay: Santino Rice seems to have an over-the-top persona with a heart that bleeds fashion. (Kansas City Star)
Santino Rice is one of the most talented of the bunch and reminds the audience of that several times an episode. (Boston Herald)
designer Santino Rice, my early fave. (Charlotte Observer)
also on EW.com:
Project Runway (Bravo, TV-14) Forget Top Model. This is the style maven's reality fave. Season 2's contestant pool (including Santino Rice, left) skews more to foppish fashionistas than flustered dilettantes, and while there are enough surly attitudes to go around, if there's a Wendy in this batch, she hasn't reared her bitter makeup-malefic head.

Again thanks for the support! Yours, Jamey.
