64 :08x01 - A Brand New Season

Jun/09/2013
Ten gifted contenders will compete for their own show on HGTV. Host and Mentor David Bromstad gives the Designers their first challenge: to create a vignette, or section of a room, that represents their personal style or brand. To make their space really distinctive, each Designer will have the opportunity to create their own original fabric and wallpaper. The challenge winner will have an item from his or her space adapted for sale on the popular website One King's Lane. Stress levels are high as the Designers race against time to showcase their POV's, and prove that they deserve to be the next HGTV Star. Genevieve Gorder and Vern Yip are joined on the Design Panel throughout the season by fellow HGTV host Sabrina Soto. At Evaluation, the winner of the challenge is declared, and the first Designer is sent home.

65 :08x02 - Lofty Ideas

Jun/16/2013
For their second challenge, the nine remaining Designers must transform an old industrial warehouse loft into a multi-functional space for living, eating, sleeping and working. The Designers divide into teams to take on the various areas. Some teams get along swimmingly, but others butt heads under the pressure. In keeping with the theme of repurposing this old warehouse loft, each Designer must also creatively update a vintage item and integrate it into their space. This item forms the basis for their first camera challenge, intended to test their TV hosting abilities. Host and Mentor David Bromstad asks each contender to show the viewers how they are transforming and using their vintage item. The performances are wildly varied, from smooth and slick to comically disastrous. At Evaluation, the Designers must defend their work before the Panel, HGTV hosts Genevieve Gorder, Vern Yip and Sabrina Soto. The winner of the Loft Challenge is declared, and one Designer is eliminated from the competition.

66 :08x03 - One Client, Four Apartments

Jun/23/2013
Host and Mentor David Bromstad informs the eight remaining contenders that they must work in pairs to transform four identical new apartments, all for the same young married couple. Each team has a short meeting with their clients to learn about their tastes and desires, in hopes of designing the one apartment that the clients will want to move into. Some Designers ask thoughtful questions; others aren't nearly as prepared. With only two days to complete this challenge, tension on the teams runs high. There is added pressure, because at the end, two Designers will be eliminated. On the morning of day two, HGTV Magazine Editor-in-Chief Sara Peterson arrives to add a major incentive: the winning design will be featured in HGTV Magazine! The Designers' work is evaluated by the Panel, Genevieve Gorder, Vern Yip and Sabrina Soto. The winning apartment is announced, and two Designers are eliminated, leaving only six to compete for the grand prize: their own show on HGTV.

67 :08x04 - Real People, Real Kitchens

Jun/30/2013
The six remaining Designers must transform the kitchens and dining rooms in two neighboring homes, in just three days from start to finish. This is a historically difficult challenge, and in all the years of this competition it has never been one hundred percent completed, so the stakes are extremely high. The Designers divide into teams and meet with the homeowners to find out their tastes and desires. Each team must help demolish the existing kitchen cabinetry, and make decisions about every aspect of the spaces. Host and Mentor David Bromstad checks in with each of the Designers, and also oversees camera challenges, which test their hosting skills. This week, each Designer must give a tip about one of three aspects of kitchen design: flooring, cabinet hardware, or backsplashes. The Designers race to complete the kitchens and dining rooms, and to satisfy their clients. Their finished work is evaluated by the Panel: Genevieve Gorder, Vern Yip and Sabrina Soto. One Designer is chosen as the winner of this week's challenge, and one Designer is eliminated from the search for the next HGTV Star.

69 :08x06 - School Bus Makeovers

Jul/14/2013
The final four Designers face their most ambitious challenges yet. For their Design Challenge, they must each transform the inside of an old school bus! The sky is the limit, as they can turn the bus into any sort of space they want. This week's Camera Challenge is also the biggest yet for the Designers. They must appear on the national daytime show, The Talk. Each of them must present an unconventional design tip to the viewers, while interacting with hosts Julie Chen and Sheryl Underwood. The pressure is intense, as the Designers attempt to complete both challenges successfully. The performances on The Talk and the bus designs are evaluated by the Panel, Genevieve Gorder, Vern Yip and Sabrina Soto. When Evaluation is complete, only three Designers remain in the competition for their own show on HGTV. David Bromstad serves as Host and Mentor.

70 :08x07 - Palm Springs Finale

Jul/21/2013
The three remaining Designers are surprised to find out that all three of them are moving on to the final challenge. They are further surprised to learn that the finale will take place in the glamorous resort area and design mecca of Palm Springs, California! There they will each make over a huge suite in a resort hotel. No sooner do they arrive at the resort and see their spaces, than each Designer is surprised by some of their former competitors, all of whom have come back to help. Three days of work fly by, as the Designers and their support teams transform these massive spaces, which consist of one bedroom plus an open living, dining, entertainment and bar area. The Designers will have two very special guest mentors for the finale: Drew and Jonathan Scott, The Property Brothers. For the final camera challenge, each Designer must take the viewer on a walkthrough of their finished suite, highlighting the most distinctive features. The final Evaluation takes place on a beautiful outdoor terrace overlooking the grounds of the resort. Host and Mentor David Bromstad joins Genevieve Gorder, Vern Yip and Sabrina Soto on the Panel. One of the three final contenders will have their dream fulfilled, as they win their own show on HGTV.
