My first question for the producer would be why didn't we see what the returnees did? We saw Anne a couple of times but other then seeing them place some items on a table and dust........well what was the point?
I did have a few bad moments at the end when the judges were deciding, I thought they might still go with Brooks. The bedroom wallpaper alone should have eliminated him. I was amazed that they liked that entry wallpaper, yuck. I thought his camera challenge was still manic but they were laughing, which is probably not what you're going for on a design show.
Jeribai did a beautiful suite. He did a good job on the bookshelves but he left that bowling alley down the middle, I think that might have been the losing factor. I really liked his bedroom and thought his camera challenge was good.
Tiffany is our winner. An okay choice, would have been okay with Jeribai too. Another beautiful room, I was worried when she got the lady carpenter but she did a good job with the fireplace. The dining table and chairs didn't bother me that much, do agree about the jute carpet in the bedroom but that was an easy fix.
I can't wait to see the pictures for this episode. The editing had me worried that I wouldn't finish! From the looks of the rooms I think they all had plenty of time, why not show us more of the design process and less of the made up drama?
I wonder what the ratings have been for this season. This board has been dead, just a few of us left from last season. Even the blog has fewer responses, they make it so hard to find. HGTV could really use a new web designer.
So Tiffany's show will be "The World's Most Embarrassing Rooms", air date Sept. 14. I'll watch, anyone else?
"Does anyone still care?" Good question. With the reduced number of contestants, the shortened "season", and the lackluster celebration for the winner, I'm not sure even the producers do. Are they trying to wean us off the show completely?
As far as the finale went, both Tiffany and Jerabai's spaces were fine. Preferred Tiffany's main room over Jerebai's, mostly because of the fireplace. I really liked Jerabai's bedroom as a hotel space. It felt a lot more luxurious than Tiffany's. If I had to choose one of those bedrooms for my own home, though, it would have been Tiffany's. Guess I can't handle that much luxury on a continuing basis.
Very glad that Brooks didn't win. His space was much too intense for Palm Springs, from the claustrophobic entryway to the slap-in-your-face wallpaper in the bedroom.

I liked them all, too, but Tiffany never really stood out for me except that she seems very nice. I'm having a hard time remembering any of her spaces, other than the bus, which was hard to view because of the camera angles.
Anyone have a handle on her style?

I missed the show last night. I've given up on coming to the HGTV site to catch up without spoilers- so I just predicted in my head, not having seen any of the final challenge, who I thought would win (based on all the other challenges). I predicted Tiffany. Looks like I was right.
I got the name of Tiffany's show wrong. It is "The Most Embarrassing Rooms in America". I remember Meg's show idea was Design Detective, she would find what was wrong with the room. That got changed because they said people wouldn't want to be told what they had done wrong. So why would they want their rooms labeled as embarrassing? Makes no sense.
HA! I KNOW my rooms are embarrassing but I like them. When people come here they don't say "oh your house is so beautiful or pretty,", they say "wow, your house is interesting, something to look at everywhere you turn". So in other words, "who would do this to their home"? But I like it and that's all that matters. If you can't experiment with your own home then what's the point of being an individual? I would gladly volunteer for a do-over if it's the kitchen or bathroom (it opens onto the kitchen), or if they want to clean the swarms of bees out of the bedroom then go for it. We live in the house from the Exorcist. *blush*!
