Design Star: Next Gen

Design Star: Next Gen is a high-stakes, edge-of-your-seat competition series inspired by HGTV Design Star.

With $50,000 cash and a shot at their own show on the line, one breakout renovation and design expert's life is about to go supernova.

Hosted by Allison Holker, the six-episode series features eight designers, renovators and social media brand-builders as they compete in intense weekly challenges.

During the series, head judge Jonathan Adler is joined by designer Lauren Makk and a rotating cast of celebrity guest experts.

The Guest Experts

As if the daily pressure-cooker of Design Star: Next Gen wasn't enough, the competitors will be evaluated by superstar industry luminaries, as well as by passionate design/competition enthusiasts.

These include Jasmine Roth, star of Help! I Wrecked My House; Kim Myles, winner of Design Star 2; dancer and TV personality Stephen "tWitch" Boss; award-winning designer Karim Rashid, noted for his work with global luxury brands; artist and floral designer Maurice Harris, known for his work with world-famous labels; actress and design enthusiast Tia Mowry-Hardrict; and one of the biggest names in home renovation and design, Jonathan Scott.

The Design Hub

The show takes place in an isolated, customised "design hub" - a community built especially for the production in Southern California.

Each competitor is given a design lab, essentially a house-inspired space that must be reimagined for each challenge.

To keep the focus on creating gorgeous spaces, the community provides everything the competitors need, including a design centre for sketching, a construction workshop to build their creations, and a fully stocked furniture and styling warehouse.

The Challenges

The weekly design challenges are specifically engineered to test the skills required to be a true Design Star.

Each challenge demands that the designer showcase their distinctive style and brand.

The competitors will face a variety of tests, such as delivering ingenious solutions for multi-functional rooms, designing for unique "upcycled" home spaces and incorporating natural elements into their creations.

In the series premiere, "Welcome to the Hub": The eight designers are tasked with reinventing their individual "pre-designed" design labs (aka "the ugliest rooms in America").

Each space must be transformed to become a dining room/living room that embodies the designer's own personal brand.

Jasmine Roth joins the judges to decide the winner and who's going home.
