  2. The show was fixed from the beginning for Danielle. A show about how to shop? Really? Britany's was so much more creative. I would have watched her show. I know how to shop.
    HGTV should listen to its viewers. We clearly preferrred Britany. Meg was and is a joke. Only watched her show once. Awful.

  3. I would love to know where Britany Simon got the beautiful over-sized Greek silhouette art work she used in the Season Finale?

  4. Danielle Colding…
    For the first time I DVR'd the winner of Design Star.
    You got it right!
    Danielle is the total package..
    I love her first two shows… And I am looking forward to her future shows.
    At the end of her second show I said out loud ..
    "you got it… You've really got it."
    Danielle puts a smile on my face..
    Her energy is contagious .
    Thank you Design Star for seeing Danielle's amazing potential.

  6. Brittany's show should be exactly what she has been doing on Design Star! I always loved her designs… I think the judges picked Danielle over Brittany because Brittany didn't always clearly express what she was thinking design-wise in the camera challenges, even though she did in the side interviews. I loved watching Brittany, I loved her design and her design tips, and I would totally watch her show, online or on HGTV!

  7. I'm really happy Danielle won she, she has personality and great designs, and whoever doesn't watch Meg you are missing out, I love her, she is so down to earth and really gets the people she is designing for, and I love the way her and Mark get along it's like watching two friends hang out. David is my all time favorite, I am truly happy for all his sucess.

  8. All of you who hate Danielle – her show was awesome and different. Brittany did som beautiful rooms-and this season was so close-after Antonio won and the viewers voiced their disappointment loud and clear-HGTV turned a deaf ear. The very few who loved Antonio could not carry him for very long. He was terrible when he did challenges-even stated he "did not care what the home owner wanted" he would do it his way. Yet Gen and Candice loved his macho style.

    Don't look for Brittani to do much after her online show. That is not the way it works.

  9. Yes, and she even copied Brittany's idea on the yert by putting the fabric behind the wooden slats.
