    Serge - Top Design 2


    Serge
    27
    Los Angeles, Calif.


    Serge describes his biggest accomplishment as learning to live without fear, being completely in the present, and doing whatever he's inspired to do. Raised by a Dutch model and Russian/Armenian meat factory owner, he is the first American born in his family. His upbringing was unconventional and domestic life was turbulent until his parents separated. His avant-garde lifestyle inspired him to become a self-taught artist at a young age. He began as a songwriter/music producer, and transitioned to painting abstract works and designing interior spaces. Serge attended Crossroads High School for Arts and Sciences and went on to earn a bachelor's degree at USC. After graduating, he worked for Chrysalis Music Group, where he screened demos and assisted their film and TV department. He then moved to New York City and discovered interior design was his true-life mission. At 27, Serge is currently running his own design company, Serge Van Lian - the name is a fusion of both his mother and father's last names. His peers describe him as a free spirited renegade with endless energy and passion for design. His style is eclectic, functional, and often times experimental. Serge views each apartment as a blank canvas and obsesses over every detail. He loves to roam around the city with no destination, looking for inspiration in architecture, nature and people.

    Awwww Serge, we hardly got to know you. Didn't even get a chance to see the tattoos up close.

    You might have been sent home first, but at least you know how to operate a faucet!!!

    Seriously, the girl who let the water runneth over should have gone first. Still there was just something so self-absorbed abouand a bit lost about Serg that I wouldn't have bee able to t Serg that I don't think I would have liked him. It's one thing to think outside the box, but it's another to have to work at it.

    I don't see it in him or his young teammate. They could have done a two-fer and I would been o.k. with it.

    He didn't have a chance. He was out of his league.

    I don't think that he should've been there in the first place based on his work on the show.

    Considering that TPTB choose to edit for entertainment purposes, I think it's unfair to make judgments about anyone and whether or not they "belong" on the show based on ONE EPISODE!

    Well there are some indications with his quiz and biography that would lend one to belive that he was not up to the challenge, given the opposition.
