Your Design Star Fan Favorite Is…

Drumroll please…this year’s Design Star fan favorite is…Kellie! Throughout the season, this mother of two from Edmond, Okla., won viewers’ hearts with her “warm contemporary” style and equally warm personality. Mark came in at a very close second.

Kellie Clements: Fan Vote Winner

Congratulations, Kellie! Check back here soon for updates about Kellie’s new online show.

Update: Thanks to all who voted for the Design Star fan favorite this year!  We had more than 1.2 million votes total, and while Mark netted lots of votes towards the end of the competition, it wasn’t enough to topple Kellie’s lead.

  1. I thought the voting ended at noon. How can there be a winner at 11:50 a.m. Mark got ROBBED!

  3. I was just in the process of sending in my 10th vote for Mark when "miss Mouth" popped up on the screen! Jeez, Design Star 2011 has been a total flop and waste of my time…!!!!

    Will never watch again, thanks for absolutely nothing HGTV…!!!

  4. yes, It said voting through 9/15, didn't see a time, so I expected voting through the whole day, this is so unfair to Mark given the closeness of the vote!

    • You're right Jann, he's been "crapped" on this entire season…..

      • I know, and a friend of mine went to high school with Mark, but I was voting for him before I even knew that. I really wish HGTV would do right by these "contests."

  7. Well, this is the second choice that i do not agree with HGTV about. Also KNOW i am not the only one that disagrees with the First, which happened Monday night! I was a shocker, but not in a good way. =o) But may the competition continue!

  8. YES!!! Go Kellie!!! The thing about it is to all of you people that are upset, Kellie has been the top of the fan favorite the WHOLE time. It wasn't until the very end the Mark even started to catch up. Kellie deserves to win. If you wanted Mark to win you should have been voting earlier than the last week. And Eilleen, it has NOTHING to do with race. Grow up.

    • We're not voting for "goodness". Could you be more lame??

  10. I thought it was a great season! All of the designers were very capable. I am excited Kellie won – she has a warm down home style.
