  5. Glad that Brittany won this at the very least. I will NEVER watch Danielle's show….her screech-y voice is incredibly irritating and she seems uber fake. Why did the judges choose such an unpalatable winner?1?

    • I feel that Brittany is a good desinger and she did a bang up job on the Yurt, but her camera challenges and her confidence was slim. I think that Danielle's designs were simply better and she comes across much better on camera. Also, don't be bitter to the winner be happy for everyone!

  8. Britt: Please come back to Phoenix for your on-line show. There are sooo many ho-hum homes. You could call your show "Ho-hum to Humdinger" I was rooting for you to win.

    I would like you to come do my kitchen. It needs help, but on a strict budget. Old non-working built-in can opener, blender power source, and toaster for a start. Tile counter-top with half-inch grout-lines for second. Chipped inlaid floor next. Grungy cabinets that cannot be cleaned 4th. Poorly planned layout 5th. Lighting needs to be improved. We bought the house 2 years ago, and we love it, but it wasn't the kitchen that drew us into the purchase, believe me. Wanna see pictures?

I also think you need new judges the judges pic the same fake foney person almost every year (expect meg) All my friends love brittney!!!! so many people love her! PLEASE give her a show!
