Designers Must Update Sets Inspired by The Facts of Life

The four remaining All Stars arrive at a studio, where they are surprised to see two identical TV living rooms. Host David Bromstad informs them that they will team up to update these old-fashioned TV stages, inspired by the beloved 1980's sitcom The Facts of Life. The hit show was about young girls at a private boarding school, and the designers must re-imagine the main room of the house as if the girls were going to school today. The All Stars must consider all the principles of good design, but also think about how their spaces will look on television. With just two days to complete their transformations, and the pressure to make it to next week's finale, the stakes are high. The very special guest on the Design Panel is actress Mindy Cohn, who played Natalie on the original Facts of Life series and who is also an avid design enthusiast. Mindy joins Vern Yip and Genevieve Gorder to decide which designer will be eliminated, and which three designers will continue on to compete for $25,000, a guest appearance on an HGTV show, and the right to be called the first-ever Design Star All Stars champion.
