You would think with all the bad programming HGTV is spewing out, a better designer/host would have been chosen for the new HGTV star. I give Danielle's show one season and it will go down the drain like many before her.
I've posted before, to host a HGTV show, you have to have staying power. You have to love the camera and it has to love you back. Obviously, your design skills have to be excellent, but you have to have the personality to sell your designs to the audience.
Although "my" design star winner was Hilari, I do wish Danielle the best. Hilari was heads above the other finalists with personality, positivity and that smile radiated the room. And she is a great designer.
Oh well, Danielle should keep her rolodex current, she may need it in about a year.
I'm Good As Long As It's Feng Shui!
I might have said the same thing about Meg or Emily but they both got second seasons, I think Emily may have gotten a third season.
The personality of the host is very important but a lot depends on how much support they get from HGTV.
I think if Danielle gets a good carpenter, a generous budget, a decent time slot and good homeowers than she could be around awhile. I think it would be great if they did something in primetime besides House Hunters.
Yes, anything but House Hunters! For Rent is a fun show, stuck on Sunday afternoons. At least Jodi gives the apartment a makeover, to satisfy the design element. And does a great job.
