I'm Curious If You Think These Famous Home Designers Are Good At Their Jobs

Home design is a matter of taste, of course...but that doesn't mean we can't judge people for it.

HGTV has had a wide array of home design stars over the years. Design is all a matter of taste, but when I watch some HGTV shows, I'm delighted by the end result of the renovation...and when I watch others, I'm like, "Please keep this person far, far away from any and all power tools."

So, below I'm going to list some of HGTV's biggest design stars, along with photos of their work. All you need to do is tell me whether you think they're good at their jobs.
