JAY MCCARROLL

Season 1
After turning down the $100,000 seed money from winning Runway to start his own fashion line ("I can't talk about it – I'll probably get sued," he says), the outspoken winner will finally debut his spring-summer 2007 collection at New York Fashion Week in September. "I took my time," the 31-year-old says. And though he lives in New York City, he doesn't exactly have a home base. "I'm kind of a squatter," he says. "All of my money went into this business."
