HGTV Design Star is an American reality competition show airing on the cable television network HGTV. It premiered July 23, 2006, and has completed seven seasons.

Clive Pearse served as host for Seasons 1-4. Vern Yip (Deserving Design) and Genevieve Gorder (Dear Genevieve) currently serve as the show's two judges and were co-hosts, with Candice Olson ("Divine Design", "Candice Tells All"), for Season 5. Starting with Season 7, a third rotating judge was brought in, to fill the spot left by Candice Olson. Previous judges include Cynthia Rowley, a designer of fashion and home accessories; Martha McCully, Executive Editor of InStyle magazine; and Mary Jo Wardle.

The contestants compete for their own design show on HGTV, which follows the format of The Next Food Network Star on sister channel Food Network. Each week, the judges decide whom to eliminate; and, in Seasons 1-4, Clive Pearse would tell the contestant(s) who had been eliminated, "Your show has been cancelled...please exit the studio."

Each week, the remaining contestants participate in an interior design challenge such as designing a living space with a specific purpose (bedroom, livingroom, garage) or creating a space in an empty room, using unconventional items from a pet store, mechanics store, or a discount store. The designers are given a specified amount of time and cash to create their designs, sometimes working alone and sometimes in teams.
