India Hicks to host 'Top Design 2', Todd Oldham demoted to mentor

By Christopher Rocchio and Steve Rogers, 04/15/2008 

Bravo has announced model and designer India Hicks will serve as the host for Top Design's second season when it premieres in the fall.

Hicks will replace ridiculously wooden Top Design first-season host Todd Oldham, who 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.

In addition to Oldham's return, Bravo has also confirmed all of the show's first-season judges -- interior designer Jonathan Adler, Elle Decor magazine editor-in-chief Margaret Russell and interior designer Kelly Wearstler -- will return for Top Design's second season.

The show's second installment will follow a similar format to its first season last winter, with its contestants living together in a loft and competing in various design-themed challenges to claim the grand prize package of $100,000 and a four-page editorial showcase in Elle Decor.

Bravo renewed Top Design in December after the show's first-season debut was the network's highest rated series premiere ever.  Top Design averaged 1,152,000 total viewers throughout its broadcast run.

Magical Elves' Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz -- who serve as executive producers for Project Runway and Top Chef -- will serve as executive producers for Top Design's second season.
