Ambrose Price in the Design Superstar Challenge

Newfoundlander Ambrose Price is a contestant on HGTV's Design Superstar Challenge. Ambrose grew up in Fortune and makes his home in St. John's now. I first heard about his appearance on the designing challenge when Anne Budgell interviewed him after he had been picked for the show, then again after the taping of his show had wrapped. I loved listening to him talk about his adventures on the show. He seemed so proud of his accomplishments and kind of surprised about it, yet he had a real confidence that came through. You can hear the interviews on Radio Noon's archive site. The first one is here (11 minutes in) and the follow-up here (23 minutes in).

Ambrose said the judges thought he was a breath of fresh air and, based on what I have heard, I have to agree. The show airs on HGTV on Mondays and can be seen tonight at 11:30PM (and February 6 at 2:30AM and 5:30AM, February 10 at 10:30PM, and February 11 at 3:30PM--I think they are all repeats of the same show but HGTV's website is not very forthcoming about it all--all times are Newfoundland Standard Time). I believe that later on the audience will get to vote online so maybe you might want to watch so we can start a new NL voting craze. From the interview, it sounds like he went far with the judges.

Go Ambrose!

I can't believe that the HGTV Canada network has reduced itself to such poor taste. What happened to informative programming with consummate hosts such as Kathy Renwald, Kimberley Seldon, Haig Seferian to name a few. Their expertise is undeniable. Ambrose Price has nothing to offer. I find him to be quite obnoxious and annoying. He's supposedly the new Martha Stewart? What an insult to Martha!

I think the "Decorating Adventures with Ambrose Price" is a great show. I think he is genuine and I love his sense of humor!!

Your doing a great job and I look forward to many more episodes!! I think you should come to Vancouver for a West Coast perspective!!
