  1. I donot think enough time was given to the designers to plan, select products, and execute. Why the rush, rush? Is it sponsors? If so, then the sales dept needs to step up their game. Maybe less number of challenges to get better designs with more time to execute.

    • It's called time management skills, the judges want to choose someone who works with others well, and be able to be a energetic television host. In interior design time management is very critical.

  2. Oh no. What a fun personality. Sad to see Chris go.

  3. Kris should not have gone home.! And I am a little baffled by Brittany's reaction to not being selected the best designer for the week. Pitiful!

    • I'm also baffled by Brittany's reaction. Now, don't get me wrong… her design was beautiful…but did she forget that the camera challenge plays a huge part of the decision.

  4. You got rid of Kris instead of Rachel??? She has done NOTHING right for weeks. She's always whining and her rooms are totally boring!

    • I'm thinking they are giving Rachel one more chance because she was so strong on the first two episodes and they know she's got skills. She really blew it this week and last week on both design and camera presentation. Time to get back on track, Rachel or it's lights out.
