Design Star On Lifestyle Home Has An Australian Contestant On It

Design Star is an enjoyable competitive design reality TV show which is now in its 7th season. The prize is to win your only show on the TV network.

It is the usual format a design challenge to a certain timeframe and then they have to a piece to camera about their  design. This series is set in Los Angeles.

The show is currently screening on Lifestyle Home on Thursday nights at 9.30pm, it is the second episode tonight.

One of the contestants in this show, 40 year old Jordan Capella is Australian. Well to be fair he has lived in the US for sixteen year but he was raised in Sydney. He currently owns a candle and furniture line. Here is a blog post from him that tells the viewer a bit more about him. However be careful there are spoilers on his blog.

If you like design shows and have pay tv this one is quite fun, they cast interesting personalities and americans are great on shows like this they just don’t hold back.

It will be awhile before we get another Australian based reality design show on our screens as the last view like The Renovators and Top Design did not pull big ratings, but there were other factors that also saw a small viewership.

Why do you think design reality TV shows don’t work in Australia?

Wow look at the before & after transformation! He’s like a new man!

I think design reality TV shows don’t work in Australia because they have never really taken off in the first place.
