HGTV Design Star is an American reality competition show.
The show is hosted by Clive Pearse. Vern Yip, host of Deserving Design; Genevieve Gorder, host of Dear Genevieve; and Candice Olson, host of Divine Design, currently serve as the show's three judges.
Each week the remaining contestants participate in an interior design challenge such as designing a living space or creating a space in empty room using unconventional items from a pet store, mechanics store, or a discount store. The designers are given a specified amount of time to complete each project, as well as a specified amount of cash in order to create a design to be judged.
The contestants compete for their own design show on HGTV, which follows the format of similar shows.
