Ellen DeGeneres to Host Furniture Design Competition on HGTV

EllenEllen DeGeneres will be teaming up with HGTV to launch a furniture design competition series next year.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

The six-episode Ellen's Design Challenge marks DeGeneres' A Very Good Production banner's first foray into producing for cable. The show, which will premiere in 2015, will feature six competitors tackling challenges in sketching, designing and building furniture within 24 hours. Contestants must showcase their creativity and versatility to impress a panel of judges. The last one standing will take home a cash prize.

"I'm so excited about this show because I love finding really special pieces of furniture," DeGeneres said. "One time I found a beautiful one-of-a-kind armoire that spoke to me in a way I'd never experienced. It turned out there was a drifter living inside of it, but that's a story for another time."

  1. The only thing I want to see Ellen keep doing is giving out checks to LGBT/allies.

  2. i realize the NYT ran a long piece this week about her 30 year career flipping houses in the LA area but didn't she learn from that stint on AI about overexposure?

  3. Does anyone watch HGTV anymore? The only show that seems to be on is House Hunters.

  7. Boy, that comment by ANDY is incredibly cynical and crude. If I were Ellen and by some chance read that, I'd be irked. Ellen has been a great ally. Every day on her show she entertains and is always doing something generous. The thing is: she isn't being generous ONLY to LGBT folks. Maybe that's what irks ANDY. I would take down-to-earth Ellen over "I'm really down deep much better than you" Oprah any day.
