Audience Reviews for Ellen's Next Great Designer: Season 1

    The show was a huge disappointment. The judges didn't follow their own rules. One of the designers didn't follow most of the challenge parameters, was in the bottom 2 in the first episode, and was allowed to go all the way to the final challenge. My wife and I didn't watch the final episode. The show had great potential, but in the end it was dysfunctional, rewarded bad behavior, and didn't appreciate the designers that actually fulfilled the challenges.

    wrong person won--should have been eliminated early in the show--plus all the drama in his life made watching cringe worthy--ugh

    I have good taste im complimented all the time on it. I dont get these designers. The judges go on and on on pieces that i wouldn't accept for free. That table that looked like a face was taking great beautiful wood and rock Nx made a joke and waste of it. They went on and on over what looked like a curio cabinet i could get at walmart. And stools that looked like a huge wisdom tooth! Im struggle to watch past the 3 rd episode with out fast forwarding to what good material they destroyed this week. Its a shame of the amount of beautiful things are being destroyed by these people. The second on the girl was so sure they'd be floored by her piece that week which was a round metal frame with cushions that looked like a big jelly beans in a nice white material she sprayed with lemon juice and made it look like dirty plastic. And when the poor man got voted off for being worse she became a crying mess and made it all about her instead of the poor guy getting voted out to the point he was giving her a pep talk to cheer her up! Unbelievable! And her lamp this week is as bad as her first 2 horrendous pieces were. Her chandler fell apart literally fell apart with her helper standing there and she truly blamed him for the problem! Poor guy was standing there and she goes into how he destroying her chances. She never takes responsibility for anything except good. She needs to go. They showed her designs and one is literally a disassembled wood kitchen table chair is mounted on a piece of wood. And she goes on how she cheated on her wife and again made it all about her and this art is to come clean about how she was devastated by her pain she caused. Shes a mess. And her work is horrible. I cant imagine paying any amount of money for things these people design. It doesn't look good or is it comfortable. It must be like that story the empire's new clothes- the con person had so convinced him he was wearing the best most expensive outfit that everyone would be envious to have he walked naked through the street showing off his non existent beautiful clothes. This is what i see these designers doing. If you value your time skip this show and safe the hours you'll never get back if you watch this. Im so horrified at the beautiful things they destroyed what they call great design! Im sure it will be a hit because Ellen has more money than God and no one wants to go against her. I cant even force myself to keep watching its terrible absolutely horrible. I wish i could give it negative stars!! I cant ever imagine it finishing up this season but its a sin if it goes 2 what a waste of peoples time the $100,000 award money and all the money spent on materials. That could have helped so many people. Honestly i thought it was a joke like that hidden camera practical joke program that was on years ago-and you were made fun of afterwards for saying nice things about horrible work. Im stunned its a real show and not a practical joke
