I missed the first episode, but have now seen the second several times. Perhaps it was something I missed, not watching from the beginning, but 24 hours? Come on. Lisa LaPorta can't do it in 24 hours, and she has professional carpenters, etc. helping her. Why/how would this bunch be able to? I can appreciate that perhaps they don't have the time to give them perhaps, but then, those designers on the judging team OUGHT to factor that into their judgement. And I don't think they did. In things like this, I always want to see what the judges could do with two novice helpers in 24 hours where they have to do work themselves and not just direct people.
Bearcata, sounds like YOU should be on the show. Is there somewhere we can go vote for you?
Urgh, I just flipped on HGTV, it's Designed to Sell, and Donna the "expert" (at being nasty) is on. She might be right about what is wrong with a place, but does she HAVE to be SO MEAN? She maybe thinks she's funny. Does anyone else, except maybe smirky Clive? This is a rerun, I've seen that door before. Shannon is much nicer and still gets her point across.
Design Star will be on in an hour.
