Will - the real "Will Smith" - started his design career as a result of an ex-girlfriend moving from the house. He needed to re-decorate for himself and the once insurance guy became a design guy. His focus is on budget concious design. His style seems to be warm and pretty inviting, deep colors (there's a lot of that this season) and textures.
His "I can do that" attitude might just serve him well this season and he certainly has a nice personality that works well on television. But, can he break out of his own personal style and does he have the broad view that education and historical context provide to give the clients what they want?
Stay tuned tonight for the first elimination episode of Design Star!
