    I see a middle-aged crisis that needs a lot of attention. I love guys who love to cook, though.

    I took a quick glance at the guy's picture and the bottom half of the page describing faster women, etc. and I thought - he must be from LA! Sure enough, he is!! Nothing in his bio looks to be design that I would find appealing. I hope my first impression is wrong.

    At the end of the first show he was already contemplating hitting on Genevieve...until the others told him she was married. Nevertheless, I'm thinking he could be the most "entertaining" of this year's contestants.

    HGTV show: Divine Design and Design on a Dime
    Really??? Design on a Dime I could see, but Divine Design? I don't think I've ever seen Candice do Rockabilly Chic.

    Anyway - we have our ALPHA MALE and all the brawling and drama that entails. We've already seen evidence this past week when it looked like he would stomp Nathan into the dust. Why, oh why are they doing that to us this year??? Can't we all just get along? Can't we all just have an enjoyable experience without the drama?

    Liked his use of paint in the White Room challenge. The design really seemed to POP out at you. But other than the paint, the room was less than nothing special.

    Not even slightly a fan of his op-art room.
