    Gary Andrews


    Gary Andrews

    Age: 41

    Hometown: Los Angeles, California

    Education: Bachelor of Arts from University of California at Santa Barbara

    Current Job: Designer


    Why I should win HGTV Design Star:
    Well, I guess the easy answer is because I think I would be a great host with a lot to offer in terms of design ideas and passion for design, but more importantly I think I should win because I have come up with a strategy that I feel will get me far in the competition. Hopefully along the way my design talents and personality will be a winning combination because like Charlie in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, who doesn't dream of getting the keys to the chocolate factory? What an amazing honor!

    Describe your design style in four words.
    Graphic, vintage, elegant and modern

    Who is your design icon?
    Frank Gehry

    What is your dream design project?
    Upscale boutique hotel

    Nature

    1-4am

    What's one thing about you that would surprise people?
    I can recite the states in alphabetical order

    Where's the farthest you've ever traveled from home?
    I grew up all over the world, but I guess saying goodbye to my mom at a gas station in Virginia and driving by myself to college in Santa Barbara while my mom moved to Florida seemed like a far traveling experience for an 18-year-old, and it was before cell phones. Can you imagine?

    What's your guilty pleasure?
    Driving by and seeing the "Hot Krispy Kreme Doughnuts" sign on and getting one, or a half dozen.

    What's your most unusual talent?
    Reading minds, but I choose not to since it really wouldn't be fair.

    What word/phrase do you say way too often?
    "Really" or "it's a whole thing"
    When I was a kid, I thought I would be:
    Candy factory owner

    Who's your hero?

    He seems very structured to me. Lots of angles and edges. Could be interesting.
