Like they learnt every bad trick from reality trip and brought them together
Just watched a few episodes on Netflix, not sure what season. It has every reality TV trope going for it: sob stories, deceptive judges, narcissism from the judges, playing with people's lives.
Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen was last relevant in the 1990s, but somehow has convinced the Americans that he's the Simon Cowell of interior design.
The bit that has made me turn off is yet another "GOTCHA VIEWERS" moments that play with the contestants. Like rewarding prizes to one set of contestants then going... actually, no, you're not going to get all the prizes. Then they say to one set of contestants "You're going home (long pause). But but not this week". It's a massive two fingers up to the other two kids standing there who put their heart and soul into a design, thought they'd got through... but no, you were just used by the judges for a prank.
And as an interior design show it just fails to really do the work much justice, there's so much padding and pontificating it doesn't really work on any level.
