One of the most impressive things about finalist Jeribai Tascoe is his lack of formal design training. He’s self-taught and is truly a “jack-of-all-trades” in the design industry. Throughout the season we saw him paint, what judge Genevieve Gorder referred to as, the best stripe she’s ever seen. (He may have also been called a Striping Magician.) Then, he installed a kitchen backsplash on his own, receiving high praise from the judges: “It was the best kitchen backsplash I have ever seen done on the show,” Vern said. Going into the finale, he wanted to show the judges he had a sophisticated and luxurious design side to him. And that’s just what he did. “This space has so many really good, sophisticated moments that show luxury and an sense of escape,” Genevieve said about his hotel suite makeover.
