Caught an episode this morning. Looks like they've changed the format. Instead of it being about the homeowners, it is now set up like a competition between the designers who made it happen.

They all sit in the same room as they watch footage of Vern and Random Realtor tour each place.

At the end, Vern says (in his Design Star voice) "I'm sorry, but you did not get the biggest bang for your buck."


It felt so staged and fake. Even more so than the original BFYB.

Not going to watch this again.

So this show is trying to create stars of its hosts? Is that what this is about or are the US/Canada so competitive?
