The six remaining Designers must transform the kitchens and dining rooms in two neighboring homes, in just three days from start to finish. This is a historically difficult challenge, and in all the years of this competition it has never been one hundred percent completed, so the stakes are extremely high. The Designers divide into teams and meet with the homeowners to find out their tastes and desires. Each team must help demolish the existing kitchen cabinetry, and make decisions about every aspect of the spaces. Host and Mentor David Bromstad checks in with each of the Designers, and also oversees camera challenges, which test their hosting skills. This week, each Designer must give a tip about one of three aspects of kitchen design: flooring, cabinet hardware, or backsplashes. The Designers race to complete the kitchens and dining rooms, and to satisfy their clients. Their finished work is evaluated by the Panel: Genevieve Gorder, Vern Yip and Sabrina Soto. One Designer is chosen as the winner of this week's challenge, and one Designer is eliminated from the search for the next HGTV Star.
Alton, Bobby and Giada are back to mentor and judge who will become the next Food Network Star.
