"HGTV Star 2013" is an interior design reality competition series in its eighth season.

Formerly known as "HGTV Design Star," the series returns with new opportunities for undiscovered home renovation virtuosos to win life-changing prizes throughout the season, including a product featured on the online shopping resource One Kings Lane, a feature in HGTV Magazine and their own show on HGTV. The series showcases finalists who must face intense, hands-on challenges in the toughest home renovation competition yet and execute amazing transformations in real homes, college campuses and exotic locations. And new this season — the lucky finalist who is the winner of the premiere episode will have an affordable, original piece of his or her artwork for sale on the One Kings Lane website for viewers to purchase.

During the series, host and mentor David Bromstad oversees the 10 creative finalists as they vie to impress the panel of experts, including network stars Genevieve Gorder, Vern Yip and series newcomer Sabrina Soto. In addition, special guests including Susan Feldman, co-founder of One Kings Lane; Sara Peterson, editor-in-chief of HGTV Magazine; and HGTV's "Property Brothers" Jonathan Scott and Drew Scott, appear in episodes to raise the stakes in this winner-takes-all competition.

The finalists, whose expertise ranges from home remodeling to interior design and from architecture to home staging, must demonstrate ingenious creativity and display their star quality on-camera to avoid elimination. The "HGTV Star" finalists include Brooks Atwood, Brooklyn, N.Y.; Tiffany Brooks, Antioch, Ill.; Tylor Devereaux; Grand Rapids, Mich.; Boris Eckey, Los Angeles, Calif.; Tobin Green, Tampa, Fla.; Crisermy Mercado, Miami, Fla.; Jessie Miller, St. Louis, Mo.; Jeribai Tascoe, Sonora, Calif.; Anne Rue, Lake Mary, Fla.; Abbey Vasek, Wimberley, Texas.

With guidance and advice from Bromstad, the finalists test their on-camera skills in each design challenge, including an appearance on CBS's national daytime show "The Talk" where the finalists must expertly deliver their top room design tips to a live studio audience and millions of viewers alongside hosts Julie Chen and Aisha Tyler.

nina was such an evil b**** tonight she is nothing like our darling star i think she should be thrown out for representing women so badlyt
dmm says:
In past seasons I have liked Vern, but this last episode he has got an attitude, I it is not appealing. love candice and Genieve. I really liked the women you had on the show the first 3 seasons. But vern need to not think he is so cool
cmm says:
Help! I fell asleep. Who went home, Nina or Tera?
dsdisgusting says:
I am now totally disgusted with the show. Dan should not have been sent home!! Alex yes definitely Nina..She is a liar, user and abuser. She used Dan and even stated it. She doesn't design at all. Alex just makes one mistake after another. Vern I used to like on trading spaces -- now he is nothing but a condescending snoot... If Nina makes it another week I am done this just totally blows
pjc says:
This is the worst season you have done. If likability is important (and it should be), then Nina should have been the first to go! She is obnoxious. Also, why all the group challenges? Aren't you auditioning someone to have their own show? Not see how they can throw their fellow contestants under the bus? And inspirations? A Joke. Clothing? Musical instruments? Flowers? What's next? Cereal, toothpaste, feminine products, dogs? None of these challenges have shown if the person should have their own show. Pam Casey, San Jose, CA.

Got spoilers? What did you think of the last show?
