Then there was Erika Van Pelt, of South Kingstown, who starred in last year’s “American Idol.” We also had the two Providence detectives, Louie Stravato and Michael Naylor, who competed in “The Amazing Race,” and the Barrington brothers, Daniel and Jordan Pious, who went on to win the whole competition. More recently, there was Cranston’s Lauren Marchetti, a former New England Patriots cheerleader who appeared in the first episode of this season’s “The Bachelor,” and Providence’s own Joseph Aaron Segal, a quirky designer and RISD alum who survived the first few rounds in this season of “Project Runway.” Last year, we also had “This Old House” filming in Barrington, where the crew helped transform a dated beach cottage into a stunning luxury home.
