    Okay, I gave her points for her taste in music, but then deducted those points because of the "age" thing. Like we really care if you're over 40

    I also wonder about the age thing as well. There are a couple who are in their 40s already, so why be ashamed to share it if she's already in that line. She doesn't loook bad anyway, and being a former model, I don't think she looks bad on camera.

    Anyway, I've seen the page from her website and I think her works are impressive. Having worked for a hollywood actress and getting praised for it makes me think she's got potential to make it far. I have to say she's a fave of mine so far. And I do like her music, too.

    If Lonnie is reading this, being an experienced designer that you are, you might as well expand your exposure by creating a better website. I really hope to see more of your works aside from your stint in Design Star. I'd like to see the work of the real Lonnie outside of the reality show. The show game plan and editing can easily compromise your skill exposure due to time limitation perhaps. Just hope too that the production likes you because then they will give you a better editing.

    After watching her in the third episode, I've decided I like her even more. In a competition with such time constraints, you have to be a pretty nice person to have TWO competitors come help in the last couple of minutes. At least that's my opinion. Plus, I did't think her room was the worst room even when she was completely thrown off.
