No TV for us — we’re ascetic and puritanical, readers only — but we can’t stay away from the interwebs. Thanks to design*sponge for pointing the HGTV Design Star competition out. It’s like American Idol but for designers.
Design Star is the search for the next great HGTV designer. The selection process will begin on our website and culminate with each of five finalists appearing in their own program on HGTV. In each of the five programs one finalist will make over a room and our viewers will vote for their favorite designer. The winner will be announced in a live show on HGTV and will become the host of their own design series.
