SPOILER ALERT: If you didn’t tune in to HGTV’s Design Star: Next Gen last night, you missed out on seeing Arkansas’s own Chris Goddard win the first challenge and make the first step toward becoming the “Design Star.”
With host Allison Holker Boss of So You Think You Can Dance, head judge Jonathan Adler and Lauren Makk, this week’s guest celebrity judge was Jasmine Roth from HGTV’s Help! I Wrecked my House. Contestants’ social media skills were put to the test as the first challenge required the eight designers to create a video showing who they are as designers and their brand. The videos had to be short, unique and interesting enough to make viewers pause their scrolling to watch. In true HGTV fashion, the designers then had to create an eye-catching interior space.
Goddard was announced as the winner at the end of the show. Goddard Design Group posted a clip of Goddard’s victory on social media.
If you want to watch history in the making, take note that the next six episodes will air on Discovery+ rather than HGTV. Tune in on Wednesday, March 3 for more of Goddard’s impressive designs.
