Debbi Travis has a new competition show on Saturday Afternoons. Today was the second episode - wish I had seen the first - and it looks interesting.
The title is From The Ground Up and is a search for her Design Assistant or Primary Designer or something that sounds like her right-hand person with responsibility. She started out with what I think was 16 designers from around Canada and is cutting one a week. In the second challenge, three teams of five took on kids' camping cabins with storage issues. After confabbing with their clients - a school bus load of kids - they huddled up and tried not to bicker. Oh, well, it is a show with a prize at the end of it. The contestants could re-purpose whatever from rubbish and old wood piles around the area. It was bitter cold and rainy. The only heat was an outdoors campfire. The only HOT item around was:
SCOTT MCILVERY! He is her Tim Gunn, and I must say does a nice job of it looking all rugged and dimply.
I've now set my DVR to pick up the series as I've always like Debbi and Scott makes me drool. And, of course, it will be interesting to see which contestant will enter into Debbi's new business of designing condos and houses.
