There are alot of twist and turns in the new HGTV reality show, “Design Star” and that makes it interesting. For instance, one of the show’s judges, designer Cynthia Rowley ends before ‘a word from our sponsor’ with “Ramona has passion, that’s what a designer needs.” At the end of the show, the problem child of the project’s form and aesthetics, Ramona, is a cancel. She is told she is the worst team player.
It will be interesting to see how the judges further define team player on this show.
If a team player isn’t fitting in or messing up the overall project plan other members’ team talent should shine through by integrating “personal” work into a professional choice. Alice Walker was the team player that came closest to this ideal. A teamplayer evolution out of this crew of self-absorbed designers could make the show a #1 reality show for this season.
