HGTV - where the stars are born

Stylists, artists, interior designers, one more talented than the other, are all competing for their own design show in cable television network HGTV in the seventh season of HGTV Design Star.

The show gives the viewer a better understanding of how the show hosts are selected. Obviously, the exact selection criteria depend on the topics of the show, but HGTV Design Star will definitely give you a sneak peek into what makes one person to be a star in his own television show while the other can only hope to become one.

What the networks (or in this case HGTV) are looking for in a show host and what they want you to be able to accomplish, HGTV Design Star will definitely help you with the understanding.

The seventh season is premiering on Tuesday, May 29, at 9 p.m. ET/PT and it kicks off with 12 very talented contestants. But by the end of the season, there can only be one winner.

While the show creates stars, in big part the show is also judged by stars. In addition to HGTV designers Genevieve Gorder and Vern Yip the eliminations will be decided by celebrity judges such as Entertainment Tonight host Mark Steines, entrepreneur and TV personality Daisy Fuentes, Emmy award-winning actress Marg Helgenberger, just to mention a few names.

The host of the show is the David Bromstad, who is also the winner of the first season.
