Let’s dish about television reality design shows today. With HGTV’s Design Star season three premiering on June 8th complete with cutie pie host Clive Pearse and Bravo’s Top Design set for sometime in the Fall with India Hicks as host of season two, I think this is a good Get Real topic for today. Many will no doubt tune in to watch designers battle it out, vying for money, prizes, and even their own show. I just watched the sneak peek of Design Star on their website and the enthusiastic contestant Michael Stribling used the word ferosh. Ut oh! We may be in for quite a ride gang.
Would you want to be a contestant on a reality design show? What are some of the pros and cons in your eyes? Do you think these shows are entertaining or just plain dumb? I’ll get the ball rolling with my comments on this below.
If you missed Get Real last week, we discussed Design Motifs here.
