Red Robin Boys: Jason Rusk, Red Robin VP of Brand Transformation and Tim Gunn...VP of Mentoring
This past week's episode of Lifetime's Project Runway involved Red Robin (the main sponsor for Season 13) and creating "High Fashion" looks from used men's suits. What that had to do with Red Robin or it's famous "Gourmet Burgers" is beyond me but I was up to the task of suspending disbelief and just "going with the program".
Inspiration? You Bet!--Season 13 Project Runway Episode 4

Kini is famished from the long ride and excited at the prospect of possibly having a breakfast burger (if there is such a thing!). No time for eating just yet, Kini: Tim Gunn is waiting, along with Jason Rusk, VP of Brand Transformation. You gotta love a good corporate title!
Jason and Tim inform the designers that Red Robin is a burger joint that "likes to look at things with a fresh perspective." Out walk 13 male models decked out in 13 different suits, from 70's leisure polyester and
