Fashion Star Renewed for Season 2 by NBC

NBC has renewed Fashion Star, its moderately-rated design series hosted by supermodel Elle MacPherson. Debuting in March, the show never quite broke out in the ratings airing behind The Voice results show, but it's numbers weren't the only factor in the renewal. After every episode of Fashion Star, every design that earns a bid from one of the buyers (H&M, Macy's, Saks Fifth Avenue) gets sold online in a limited-edition basis. That type of ancillary income is valuable, particularly to a show that doesn't have the numbers for an automatic renewal.

Orly and Nikki may have made a sale, but they ended up on the chopping block, going home alongside once-consistent Luciana. Remaining are Kara, the leading money earner having sold a garment in seven of the nine episodes, comeback kid Ronnie, and former engineer Nzimiro, all three looking toward the $6 million grand prize that the winner will receive.
