I agree, I am disappointed too.
**In a previous season I loved the challenge where they designed a space for each designer after interviewing them to get an idea of their style.
**I loved David Bromstead and he stood out as a star on his season, immediately. I see no one leading the pack here but that may be due to
the uninspired challenges.
**I miss the woman judge from a decorating mag whose name escapes me at the moment (was that even this show?).
**I like the new set. Perching on stools always looks uncomfortable (was that even this show?). I may be mixing two together here.
**I want Nina to go home.
**I love Candice Olsen. Her skill is far above Genieve.
**I have not seen anything Vern has done outside of Trading Places and you just cannot judge any designer based on that show.
I am hopeful it will get better when the contestants are working on their own. Artists of any kind never excell when they have to compromise their sensibilities on a team.
