Matt Locke looking tough on "Design Star"
Last week, I wrote about Springs native Matt Locke trying his hand on HGTV's "Design Star." In the premiere, which aired Sunday, but I didn't catch until last night, Locke blew away the other contestants with his display board. I can't really describe it, other than it was really, really cool and professional.
The devil's in the details, though. The first challenge for the designers is to build their own house on a lake shore in Nashville. In a week. Entertaining, but weird. Locke built his own house in Palmer Lake, but, as he said in the episode, "I built my own house, but it took me eight years."
Also, Locke said he wears a respirator when he's working with power tools because of allergies. That's not going to help his presentation skills.
So we shall see.
Also, Springs native Shane Lyons is still hanging tough on "Next Food Network Star." And, last I checked, still serving up the good stuff at the Blue Star. I was a little concerned for him, since he cried in the opening episode and had the judges talking about how young he is (he's 20), but he's light years ahead of some of his competition in presentation skills.
