HGTV Design Star is back for an electrifying fourth season with 11 fiercely competitive and creative finalists. The finalists, featuring professional designers, home stagers, architects and artists, must navigate the most demanding design challenges in the series’ history and dazzle the judges with creativity and ingenuity until one wins their own show on HGTV. You can catch the show on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Here’s some of the Asian American faces on the show.
Renowned interior designer Vern Yip returns as a judge on the exciting fourth season of HGTV’s Design Star, where he will help discover America’s next great design talent. He’s also the host of HGTV’s inspirational makeover series Deserving Design, which has transformed countless homes and restaurants with beautiful makeovers on several design television shows and through his private practice.
Contestant Jany Lee hails from Dallas, TX, but is originally from Canada. Before her husband’s job was transferred to Dallas, Jany owned her own design business in Toronto. Her self-described style is classic, contemporary and glamorous, which helped her find a niche flipping houses and designing rooms for clients. Since moving to Texas, Jany has undertaken the task of redesigning her new home and has tackled every job from installing hardwood floors and removing walls to selecting colors and accessorizing. Hope this Salsa dancing, world traveling designer makes it far into the competition.
