[ HGTV ] Ellen's Design Challenge

DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
Since Season 2 is assured already by Ellen, this needs a proper PEx thread.
( Hayaan nyo na ako ha ha ako lang ang matiyaga na nanonood nito and I hate its counterpart "FRAMEWORK on Spike. I just squeezed in my comments on this show there before )

I'm lovin' it. The dynamics is just amazing and entertaining.
Obviously, I'm a fan of Ellen kaya I'm supporting her side project too.


Ellen DeGeneres puts six furniture designers to the test when they come to Los Angeles to compete in various challenges designing and building amazing furniture creations in just 24 hours. With a workshop, a lead carpenter and all the tools they’ll need, the contestants will be tasked with a new build each episode. A panel of expert judges along with appearances by Ellen will eliminate them one by one until one designer is left standing to take home the cash prize and win Ellen’s Design Challenge.

"You’re gonna be on the edge of your seat with every episode. And these people make seats, so if that doesn’t blow your mind, I don’t know what will.":lol:
- Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen is so generous coz the show has an official YouTube Channel.
You can watch the episodes for free.

    Jose Gaspar de Jesus


    Jose Gaspar de Jesus was born in Venezuela but is now based in Los Angeles. The designer graduated from the Pratt Institute and launched his own Art Deco-influenced furniture line a couple of years later. According to his HGTV bio, he considers himself to be a “leader” and enjoys taking chances.

    Katie Stout


    Katie Stout is a self-proclaimed procrastinator – which is why she thinks she’ll win “Ellen’s Design Challenge.” The furniture designer, who works out of her basement studio in Brooklyn, New York, knows she can complete a project in the short amount of time the contestants will be given.

    Tim McClellan


    Durango, Colorado, native Tim McClellan is all about repurposed furniture. A self-taught designer, he owns Western Heritage Furniture and focuses on using recycled materials to create his projects.

    Carly Eisenberg


    Hailing from Asheville, North Carolina, Carly Eisenberg is unique in that she’s a blacksmith. The owner of Iron Mountain Forge, Carly can craft anything from a hook to a steel rocking chair.

    Mark Moskovitz


    Mark Moskovitz is the owner of Fiftytwothousand, a design studio focused on work that is “raw and refined.” The Yarmouth, Maine, contestant has had his furniture featured in magazines and museums and believes his greatest strength is being able to step out of his “comfort zone.”

    Leslie Shapiro Joyal


    Los Angeles native Leslie Shapiro Joyal is the owner of 407 Furniture. Initially an interior designer, Joyal began creating furniture after failing to find quality work that visually pleased her. Her pieces are inspired by American Shaker, Japanese and midcentury modern.

    So recently watched Ep.4

    Toughest challenge so far: Couch.
    In 48 hours? Patayan na ito.

    Ang ganda talaga ng bromance nina Tim and Chip. Quick thinker din sila pag may problem. Ha ha nakakainlove kahit both straight sila.


    Ang fierce ni Carley talaga pagdating sa metal bending.

    Ok din ang calm chemistry nina Katie and Karl
    Sexy ng British accent ni Karl.

    Boring ang design ni Gaspar kahit innovative.

    Romantic ang design ni Carley. Like ko.

    Grabee yung guest judge. Super tough talaga.:lol:

    OMG. Natakot ako kay papa Tim.
    Di nagustuhan ang design niya.

    Maganda design ni Katie on its own pero di bagay sa lounge nila.

    OMG no clear winner?
    Hala! As if?:bop:

    Entire spectrum of the competition ang basis sa elimination: shocked naman ako natanggal si

    Scrap materials ang challenge this week.
    Toughest challenge so far.


    Di makapag-isip nang maayos si papa Tim. Worried si Chip tuloy.

    Relax na relax talaga si Katie. Ha ha

    May idea si Gaspar pero parang walang dating. Magkahawig na sila ni Brooks yung carpenter niya.


    End of Day 1 wala pa ring nagagawa si papa Tim.:eek:

    Day 2

    Nakakabilib makakita ng mga hi-tech equipments like Plasma cutters. Amazing!*okay*

    Aba may cool feud sina Gaspar and Brooks?
    May nagawa na rin sina papa Tim kaso di ko ma-gets ang design niya.
    Andami pang gagawin ni Katie.

    Last Day

    Hustle hustle hustle.
    Andami pa nilang gagawin.


    Katie - they like it pero parang hindi raw siya nag-push pa kasi acrylic na naman daw.


    Gaspar- hindi attractive tingnan.
    Mixed reviews.


    Tim- kinikilig talaga ang mga judges sa kanilang dalawa. Hindi lang pala ako ang nakakaramdam. Even si Gaspar sabi para daw silang mag-asawa. Ha ha. Ok ang mga reviews medyo hyper-masculine lang daw.
    Pero feel ko Safe siya at pasok sa Finale



    First designer to the Finale

    Second designer to the Finale


    Bye Gaspar


    Excited na ako next week.
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐


    Dapat ginagawa din ito sa Project Runway.

    Shocking nga ang result!!!:eek:


    Yeah, TIM was declared as the WINNER during the Finale!!!:)

    But after one week!!!!


    Yung design niya pala hindi ORIGINAL.
    Kinopya lang niya from a European designer.



    Kalokah. Turn off ako bigla. Pero mahal ko pa rin siya.:mecry:
    i wanna hear his side. Guest siya ni Ellen soon sa show niya.


    Hindi na siya pinag-explain sa episode na ito.

    So binigyan ng surprise guesting si Katie sa show ni Ellen At doon na sinabing siya ang OFFICIAL WINNER.


    Congrats KATIE!!!


    Kaso nakaka-sad naman yung ginawa ni papa Tim.
    Nakakahiya sa buong mundo.

  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Hanep naman ang pasabog. Double Elimination agad.

    Mukhang magagaling ang mga nakuha nila.
    Akala ko Pinoy yung isa. Hapon pala.

    Sana yung mga hunk carpenters pa rin ang kukunin ni Ellen this time.
    Can't wait for Episode 2 in two weeks.

    I heard about this when it happened. Buti na lang Ellen did the right thing even if it's something you'd rather not just show onscreen.
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    OMG may naligaw :lol:

    finally, hindi na monologue ang drama ko.

    yeah, buti na lang hindi pa aired ang Season eh na-discover agad nila ang plagiarism ng winner.
    kainis kasi bet ko pa naman siya...sayang lang ang talent niya.

    parang Miss Universe 2015 lang..na-Colombiazoned.

    kahit yung mga judges walang idea na nagawa na pala
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Now watching Episode 2.
    natuwa naman ako kasi binalik pala nila ang mga carpenters last season.
    Kinilig ako kasi present pa rin si Chip.
    kaso di ko type si Sef na nakasama niya.
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Signature Bed ang challenge nila.

    I love the Top 3 Designs this week

    yung natanggal Ok lang din kasi nakakatakot talaga higaan yung bed niya :lol:
  • BeerhandBopBeerhandBop PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    i don't get why Chip Wade was reduced to just being a carpenter for that Dbag. LoL
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    ^random ata ang pag-pick?
    baka bunutan ng chips :lol:

    Beer are you referring to the current season?

    I have no idea na sikat na sikat na pala before si Chip sa HGTV.
    may sariling show pa talaga siya.
  • BeerhandBopBeerhandBop PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    1st season. the guy that got eliminated.

    yea. chip wade already has his own show. he deserves better than to get paired up with a dbag like that.

    magaganda ang designs nya. a lot of his pieces are dual purposes pieces that allows him to create spaces that do more than 1 thing.
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Done watching Challenge 2 ( Ep3 ) ; Outdoor Furnitures

    Gosh ang results :eek:

    Parang gulong lang talaga.
    ambilis ng bawi ni Sef. Pasalamat siya at si Chip kasama niya.
    ang ganda nga ng table na ginawa niya. Elegant na elegant talaga.

    gusto ko yung hanging chair, cute sa garden tingnan.
    even yung kay Kyle kahit nasa bottom siya. relaxing un.
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Done watching Ep4.
    The Great Wall of China.

    Design A Dining Table Compatible To A Chosen China

    Hanep ang ganda ng gawa ni Sef.
    Magaling kasi si Chip. :love:

    Pero mas innovative kasi kay Miles kaya wagi.

    Yumabang ata si Kyle :bop:

    At natanggal din sa wakas yung mahilig sumagot sa mga judges :lol:

    Simple lang ng gawa niya. :)
    Deserving na mapauwi.
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    di ko feel ang mga designs nila sa Around The World Challenge.
    walang mga appeal.
    actually, yung tinanggal nila ang may pinakamagandang gawa.
    however, ayaw ng mga judges ng stylist. Designer ang hanap nila at hindi stylist.
    yeah. medyo weak siya konti pagdating sa design talaga.

    kinabahan ako kay Carpenter Chip muntikan na madisgrasya pala sa workshop.
  • DAKINDAKIN PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Kinabahan ako dito sa Ellen's Choice Challenge nila.

    Yung mga nasa Top eh di ko feel kasi simple lang pero ang craftsmanship eh superb.

    Tapos ang mga nasa bottom 2 eh yung 2 frontrunners na out of this world ang imagination pero may konting aberya sa craftsmanship dahil kinulang sa oras.

    Mabuti naman at fair ang mga judges.
    Best decision ever.

    Yung dresser na yun?
    Pang-FINALE na yun eh.

    Wow..bet ko na siya tuloy.
