Bravo reveals 'Top Design' second-season cast, to debut September 3
By Christopher Rocchio, 07/17/2008
Bravo has revealed the identities of the 13 interior designers who will compete on Top Design's second season, which the network announced will premiere Wednesday, September 3 at 10PM ET/PT.
Top Design's second season -- which, following last month's debut of Shear Genius' second season, will be the second Bravo reality series to air in high-definition -- will follow a similar format to the show's first season. Like last winter's edition, the contestants will live together in a loft and compete in various design-themed challenges, with the winner receiving a grand prize package of $100,000 and a four-page editorial showcase in Elle Decor magazine.
Interior designer Jonathan Adler, Elle Decor magazine editor-in-chief Margaret Russell and interior designer Kelly Wearstler will all reprise their judging roles for Top Design's second season.
As was previously announced, ridiculously wooden first-season Top Design host Todd Oldham will be replaced by model and designer India Hicks for the show's second installment. Oldham will still remain with the show and serve as a Tim Gunn-like mentor to the Project Runway-like reality competition series' second-season cast.
Bravo renewed Top Design in December after the show's first-season averaged 1,152,000 total viewers throughout its broadcast run.
