For the final challenge, the two remaining contestants, Kim Myles and Todd Davis, are given an outdated ocean-front hotel suite on Waikiki Beach to demonstrate why they should be HGTV's new Design Star.

Todd makes a significant move by switching the function of each room in his suite. He moves the bed into the main living space next to the kitchen and the dining area to the bedroom next to the bathroom. This arrangement smartly takes advantage of the view from the bed, but, in turn, creates some awkward circumstances. Most guests would be uncomfortable eating directly outside the bathroom and would find it slightly awkward to have a full kitchen next to the bed. Additionally, moving the large-screen TV and custom-built cabinet into a location that partially blocks the view he fought so hard to showcase is inconsistent with his decision.
