Reminder: HGTV's Design Star Premiere's Tonight!

Are you as super excited as I am for this HGTV’s Design Star this year?  I really get in to it and feel like I “know” the designers after a fun season, don’t you?  I love watching the challenges.  I imagine being on the show is a dream come true for the designers, getting to meet extremely talented famous designers and having the opportunity to be the next DESIGN STAR!  Imagine overcoming nerves, stage fright and being judged by the best. I’d be a wreck!
This season DESIGN STAR heads to NYC, where 12 talented designers compete to host their own show and where readers can vote daily for their favorite contestant. All will be mentored by season one DESIGN STAR winner, David Bromstad and will be faced with an all-star judging panel of acclaimed HGTV interior designers, Genevieve Gorder, Candice Olson and Vern Yip. It will also include a few celebrity guests!  I don’t often watch tv but this is one show I’m going to add to my summer routine.  Popcorn and all!  

Here are a couple of sneak peeks to give you an idea of what to expect this season:

Premiere is TONIGHT, 7/11/11 at 9/8 C on HGTV! Are you watching too?

I can’t wait to get to “know” them and see some amazing designs!  I’d love to discuss your thoughts – they all have such a diverse background. It’s bound to be interesting season!
