America’s vote made him an HGTV Design Star, but now David Bromstad,
with his winning smile and infectious personality, is ready to take on
tired rooms and change them into vibrant, unforgettable spaces on his
own show, Color Splash. The new weekly series, which sneak peeks on
Sunday, March 18 at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT immediately following the HGTV
Dream Home Giveaway, will air in its regular time slot on Mondays at 9
p.m. ET/PT beginning March 19. Each week David will show viewers how
they can use color to embolden, enliven and invigorate their spaces.
Its freshman season exceeded ratings expectations and generated buzz around water coolers as fans cast their final votes for “David” or “Alice;” now HGTV Design Star has launched a second nationwide search for professional and novice designers, architects and artists who believe they have the talent, expertise and on-camera skills to host their own show on HGTV. The network will accept submissions for HGTV Design Star season two that have been postmarked between Wednesday, October 25, 2006 and Friday, December 1, 2006; viewers can get applications, entry rules and additional information about the search by visiting HGTV.com.
The eagerly-anticipated season finale of HGTV Design Star which aired on Sunday, 9/10/06 at 9:00 p.m. was the #1 primetime program in ad supported cable among A25-54 with a 1.7 rating. Since the show’s premiere on 7/23/06, all airings of HGTV Design Star have been sampled by more than 24,000,000 P2+ .
HGTV Design Star started off with 10 talented designers. Eight of the designers were canceled, leaving a final two of David Bromstad, 32, of Miami, Florida and Alice Fakier, 31, of Temple, Texas. Last week, David and Alice squared off in a competition to design a glass house in New York City’s Bryant Park. Viewers then voted for who they wanted to win the competition.
The battle for the title for HGTV’s next great designer will culminate during the eagerly anticipated season finale of HGTV Design Star on Sunday, September 10 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
During a dreary weekend punctuated by torrential downpours in New York City’s Bryant Park, the final two HGTV Design Star candidates got their last chance to impress the show’s judges and television viewers. In full view of spectators in the park, the talented finalists designed two 16′ x 12′ glass houses and demonstrated their on-camera hosting skills. After surviving six rigorous design challenges and besting eight other competing designers, architects, decorators and artists, David Bromstad, 32, of Miami, Fla. and Alice Fakier, 31, of Temple, Texas took their last shot at the coveted prize – the chance to star in his or her own show on HGTV. The pair’s final designs will be revealed during the HGTV Design Star episode airing on Sunday, September 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
“Tym your show has been cancelled,” piped up host Clive Pearse. Tym DeSanto (from Indiana) believes less is more. Sadly, this time the celeb judges did not agree! He was told his design lacked artwork on the walls and was too masculine. So we have to say goodbye to “soft-on-the-eyes” Tym, as Cynthia Rowley called him during the episode.
“Temple your show has been cancelled,” said host Clive Pearse. The former Miss Utah, with no design experience made it this farÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â¬”besting even those with Harvard Design degreesÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â¬”to last 5 rounds but got knocked out this episode.
“Joseph, your show has been cancelled”….Last night (Sunday, July 30, 2006) Clive Pearse, host of HGTV Design Star, invoked his signature closing phrase on HGTV’s hot new competition reality series on home design.
Hosting a television show may not have been on their radar when they first entered the design business, but now 10 designers, architects, decorators and artists have been named as finalists in the new weekly reality competition, HGTV Design Star, premiering Sunday, July 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The eclectic group, which includes a former beauty pageant finalist and mother of two from Utah, as well as three Harvard graduates, represents various lifestyles and life stages, personalities and preferences, education and experience, but all must prove their mettle in devilishly clever design challenges until only one remains to claim a coveted prize – starring in his or her own HGTV show.
