I liked that they got rid of what's-her-name...the hostess? Announcer? (I'm not even sure what her title was.) And it was nice to get through the first show without actually hating anyone (although a couple of them came close).
I loved some of the things they did in the rooms. I really liked the bedroom with the architectural design (the one with the chevrons was OK). I thought the great room came out...well, great :-) The charcoal gray wasn't a color I'd normally even consider, but it really worked well.
White room challenge next week :-)
