HGTV Design Star: Fallen Star Joshua Foss

HGTV Design Star: Fallen Star Joshua Foss

Apparently, nice guys finish second to last.

Joshua Foss, one half of the two-of-a-kind sent packing from Sin City on last Sunday's Design Star, talked to AT about his experience on the HGTV hit.

He's sensitive (of the eco kind), thoughtful and pretty easy on the eye… the kind of fellow you could bring home to Mother.

Mother Earth, that is...

Josh's angle was sustainable design of the high-style variety, but unfortunately, he didn't get too much of a chance to practice what he preaches, getting "cancelled" after only the second of the show's challenges. While their kitchen was actually finished, and garnered squeals of delight from the Vegas homeowners, his team (including the high-fivin', belly-bumpin' double-consonant Frat bros Robb and Todd) created a faux-Tuscan façade that totally failed to wow the judges. Josh took the proverbial one for the team (though if it were our vote…)

And this self-professed metro-hippie is just two degrees removed from the Eameses themselves… plus, he is a huge fan of this very blog.

We sense a hanging chad was the real reason he got the Birkenstock boot. And we demand a recount.

Remember, each week we'll be interviewing the latest fallen Star from the cast of Design Star.

And hear all about the show straight from the HGTV VP, Event Programming, James Bolosh, in the interview that kicked off the season of this HGTV ratings powerhouse exclusively for AT readers.
