    Okay, I'll go first.

    Didn't like the colors she used for the White Room. Not at all. However . . . I appreciated the neat appearance and the symmetry of the whole thing.

    She has a more realistic design for the "everyday" people who aren't creative and can't afford someone to design for them.

    The problem with that is that being "every day" doesn't translate into STAR!. The judges have emphasized already that they are looking for a STAR - someone who will be their co-worker with a show that will add a complimentary point of view or a contrasting point of view to their own. They have placed her in the bland category as far as her design presentation as it shows on a television monitor.

    Remember, also, that the judges do not see the works in person, only on the monitor on the stage as we are seeing it during judging. So far, the only time the judges (past seasons) have physically entered a space is during the Finale last project.

    Oh! I agree. She will have to really step it up and go outside the box and her comfort zone to stay on this show.

    Karma bit her in the behind when she was openly smirking about Taschica getting the gate last night. He who smirks hardest smirks last!
