Jen Bertrand, contestant on this season’s Design Star on HGTV, stopped by our showroom this afternoon. I had an opportunity to chat with the lovely Jen for a few minutes about what it is like being back in Kansas City, and watching herself on TV on Sunday nights.
Jen says the hardest part of being back “is keeping [the ending] a secret.” The finale of the show has yet to be filmed. It’s scheduled for next week, and is actually the reunion show, where viewers also vote for their favorite designer from the remaining two finalists.
Jen says this week’s coming show (Sunday, July 13 at 8:00 p.m. CST) “is crazy…we [design] a kitchen in 24 hours.”
Here, at Portfolio, we can’t even imagine! In awe, I asked Jen how in the world she was able to pull that off. She laughs, “I’m the ‘Paint Queen’…it’s all about using what we have, with the resources we have [on hand].”
