Designs on HGTV

September 2, 2007 9:00 PM

The second season of HGTV's "Design Star" won't end until Sept. 16, but the network has already begun accepting applications for contestants for season three.

"Everyone thinks they have what it takes to be an HGTV design star, so this is the chance for potential finalists to quit armchair quarterbacking and get in the game," said James Bolosh, VP for event programming at HGTV.

The network expects contestants to have design talent (obviously), be able to execute their ideas and have a strong on-camera presence. Season three will air in 2008 and folks who want to try out can visit HGTV.com/Design Star. Once a winner is picked by viewers, production begins on that person's new show.

It can be a long-lasting gig; HGTV said season-one winner David Bromstad's show "Color Splash" has been picked up for three more seasons. -- Jon Lafayette
