  1. Think a hundred times before you join this contest you may have the same fate of Tyler very talented and yet went home sooner than cathy and kevin sad, sad sad .. unless they will have new judges who knows how to use their brains or who have brains .. what if they feel so insecured again of your talents ? bye bye soon ! lots of my friends and family will never watch this show again ..and we'll watch only sabrina , candice, david ..the judges who are very insecured see how they use power and I admired Emily who was brave enough to tell the truth considering that she just won tgis contest and not afraid it may affect her having a show in HGTV ..Tyler don't feel so bad and the others who have talents coz for sure you all will go home soon lots of people /viewers believe in all of you it's like in the workplace they let good people go and keep the bad ones they soon went down down to the drain More Power to you guys ..mark, karl , leslie kellie is so depressing to watch always emotional cathy she doesn't even exist okay

  2. "Oh I just love DS, this channel is always on at home. I just love David. Oh, I never miss an episode. Everyone is so creative!" P-L-E-A-S-E what planet are you on? Do you SERIOUSLY think HGTV has actually gotten BETTER with their programming in recent years? Just look at allot of the comments in the past few seasons. If this realy IS the future I guess those of us who watched the programs to LEARN something can say "good bye" like the network said 'good bye' to their original roots.

  3. Todat show, Aug. 28th was a rerun, but I need to comment on this show. Each stars was to decorate one room in this house. Every room was "SO DIFFERENT" then the other, I know that my homes have all been
    decorated with same shade, here we have one room in orange, there as no flow to the home, Some modren
    Some with the the nice panel on the bedroom walll. And what was that wood stuff in the dinning room and the seperstion from the from the living, the outside did not look like a long cabin., and the one who could create a bunk beds???? what wrong with stackable lockers. It' what the kid wanted. SHE WAS NOT KICK-OFFF1111

  7. Yes, I want to know that too ! The application is so long as well as the whole process and I would like to have some time to devote to applying ! Please HGTV give us a little advance notice!

  8. Please bring back shows like Homes Across America, Dream Drives and Designer's Challenge. I miss the good old days. The shows now are annoying with this reality stuff. The people think they are cute and want so much attention opposed to serious decorating.
