Time for another installment of my weekly recap of Design Star. My friend Matt is a contestant and our friend Eryk suggested I do a weekly recap. This weeks episode was odd - it was built around the idea of designing hotel suites for a country star - but we barely meet her for all of 5 minutes with no biographical and musical info/montage, etc - if you aren't a country fan, you're clueless about who she is. Anyway, here's this weeks recap:
Host introduces challenge. Group goes "woooo". Host names country star. Group woos. Host talks. Group woos. Group opens cans. Group woos. Group picks teams. Host talks more. Group woos.
