Yikes. Dan was so much better, but in terms of personality, he was too much like so many others on HGTV. 5 years I'm delighted that Antonio won. I feel that he's bringing something totally different to the HGTV network. Dan is a great designer but I think that we've seen him before. Time for someone new! heatherhas 5 years It was clear that Dan was the better designer, and it was equally obvious that Antonio was offered the contract because he was a "different" hosting personality. Antonio kinda rubbed me the wrong way with his somewhat bratty attitude. I feel bad for Dan. :( heatherhas 5 years It was clear that Dan was the better designer, and it was equally obvious that Antonio was offered the contract because he was a "different" hosting personality.

But HGTV has got similar host like him (hee, David B? :)). So I can understand why they chose Antonio. He's a different personality, it'd be interesting to see him being 'molded' into one of those HGTV hosts. girlie871 5 years I agree with fleurfairy. I liked Dans rooms better but im not dissapointed that Antonio won. crystalm07 5 years hello SPOILER! I hadn't watched it yet but guess I know now....UGH 5 years I am not that impressed by Antonio and I will not be watching a show of his. I did not think he was the best designer by far. vinnie 5 years argh! I missed the episode!! vinnie 5 years argh! I missed the episode!! fleurfairy 5 years I think Antonio's show will be more interesting. He's funny and entertaining. I think Dan was the better designer, but as a host, he's a dime a dozen.
