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.

  2. I can't believe this…..what the hell is HGTV doing? Don't they see that Mark has been the favorite….both on the show and online by far??????? Are they trying to block him???

    • I actuallly think Kellie was in the lead as fan favorite during the whole show….. actually wish Mark would have stayed instead of Karl.

  3. OK – I don't want to get fanatical here. I just want to express my deep dissappointment about this entire Design Star experience. I'm not a Meg Believer even though she made ONE great room at the end. I think her knowledge is a bit shallow. And I feel the same way about Kellie. I was at least hoping for a Mark or a Karl fan favorite show. Personalit plus True Design talent is what i was hoping for. I feel HGTV has left the viewers with One hit wonders – if that.

  4. Congratulations to all of the designers for jumping in and following their hearts and allowing us to tag along watching. It's hard to put yourself out there and no matter the result you all won with the friendships and connections that came of this. Kellie, go inspire the world and Mark keep pushing forward making yourself and others happy through your work. You all have a gift to share with the world! So get out there!

    • We don't vote for "sweet spirits". We vote for great designers, which she has never been, and will never be!
