HGTV 'Design Star': Emily or Michael FTW? Vote!
The former teammates go head-to-head on the Season 5 finale of HGTV's "Design Star," airing Sunday, Aug. 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
The fifth season was tougher than ever, thanks to a new format that challenged the contestants up for elimination to tape a presentation of their designs so they can be judged on their hosting skills.
For the finale, the designers will have to present their (possible) future shows.
The final two:
Emily - She started out dismally by being in the Bottom Two of the first episode after failing the "white box challenge." She's nevertheless bounced back a bit, placing highly in many of the challenges, although she did fall in the Bottom 2 once again. Her quirky and bohemian style brings in surprises every now and then, and she definitely isn't afraid to use color or print.
Michael - He's done pretty well for himself, landing among the top designs for the majority of the run (except for falling to the Bottom 2 only recently). He can be a bit off-putting with his take charge attitude, but at least he's recovered from his nail gun mishap to make it to the end. His knack for innovation definitely makes him a strong contender.
And here's a peek at Emily and Michael in the finale waiting to hear ("hear no evil"?) the results.
