BACKGROUND Walker, 38, studied art at Wingate College in North Carolina, where he created fashions for local models. He later attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.

FUN FACT Despite the fact that he sometimes wears a gold band on his wedding finger, the single, Raleigh, N.C., native says he’s ”still looking for [Ms. Right].”

CLAIM TO FAME Was sewing coordinator for ”TS”’s second season, and continues to help out when he’s not serving as one of the show’s eight designers.

HIS FUTURE When not cracking the whip on ”TS” (he was once overheard telling host Paige Davis to ”be useful while you stand there”), Walker creates custom wedding and debutante dresses through his business, Walker Originals.
