I must admit that I miss Clive as the host. He had witty comments and thought he did well in the role. I do like the addition of David. I like his show Color Splash and think it's nice to have someone who's been through the whole Design Star process helping the contestants out.
What do you think about the contestants? There's no one really jumping out at me as a favorite. Maybe it's because in most of the challenges they have been paired up and we haven't really seen anyone's true design style yet. Or maybe it's because they're all getting along pretty well.
In the past it seemed like you could spot the few who would be in the final 3 or 4. Maybe because they had a strong opinion about each design, or that they created something awesome each time around.
So far my favorites have been Kellie. She's a mom like me, she from Oklahoma my new state, and she has a nice style.
I like Mark too, I keep waiting for him to do something cool and hip.
Cathy seems to be the one butting heads with the most people so far. In the past 2 challenges she seemed to make her partners upset. And I don't know what the deal was with all the food she put in the kitchen last night.
Kevin always seems to have big ideas that sound good, but it seems like he has trouble executing them. He's been at the bottom a few times so I'm getting worried for him.
Meg seems to be coming into her own and getting into the swing of things. The last two challenges have been good for her. She had me worried with the White Room Challenge, yikes.
I try to understand where the contestants are coming from. It must be hard to come up with totally unique and fabulous ideas in such a short time frame. I often wonder if I would be able to do it myself.
What about you? Do you have a favorite contestant yet? Do you dream about being on Design Star?
