Actually, I have to say that STARRY LUNA stole my thunder! HAHA! Well, a little bit anyway. I think the idea of having TWO hosts is a great idea! But which two? Dave and Alice!
Tim's hosting style was cool and casual, but his room designs just don't seem "current" enough to fill a show. Minimalism is not really "IN" right now, and his GREEN room from last week and this week's apartment rooms looked empty and lifeless compared to the other rooms.
I've loved David since the beginning, but his narcissistic attitude could be too much to take on a weekly basis. Though He is the best designer of the three, IMHO, I think his excitement would be tempered beautifully by Alice's southern charm. Ironically, David would be a good "straight" man to Alice's quirky story telling about the room. HAHA!
After all, both Vern and Clive know what it's like to work with a partner. There is so much more to play off than just the camera.
While I am fully aware that there must be a "winner", the smartest programming idea might be to have David and Alice take turns designing parts of a project in sort of a "husband and wife need to blend conflicting styles" sort of show. Hmmmmmm.......
We shall see.
My only last hope is that HGTV does a much more professional FINALE to this show than the cheesey production the Food Network put together for their show.
Also: BRAVO's rip-off version of this (TOP DESIGNER) is coming soon, so we have THAT to look forward to!
