HGTV Casting Call – Inferior Design Disaster Show

As an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases (more).

Wanting to put together a beautiful room is one thing – actually pulling it off successfully is quite another. Some people simply lack the designer’s eye, others lack the skills to execute their decorating plans – and then there is the special breed of people who lack both but bravely go for it anyway. If that sounds like you, HGTV has a new show they’d like you to be on.

Maybe your desire to add a little color to a bathroom has given everyone an idea of what it would look like if a rainbow threw up – violently. Or perhaps your once-cute collection of porcelain dolls has amassed to a size that it now solely occupies The Creepiest Bedroom On Earth. Or perhaps your interpretation of one of Vern Yip’s focal fireplaces proves that some HGTV makeovers should be accompanied with a “Do Not Try This At Home” warning. The misery and humiliation you put your family through every time they walk in these rooms can finally pay off (and be fixed) – provided that you have a sense of humor about it all and are willing to go on TV to show it off to the world.

High Noon Entertainment is casting the Inferior Design Disaster Show – and here are all the details about this opportunity in their own words:

Homeowners in the Tri-State Area: Do you have an interior decorating disaster in your home? Did you attempt a DIY makeover that should have been a DI-Don’t? Has your design dream turned into a nightmare? Then HGTV is looking for you!

HGTV is NOW CASTING energetic, motivated homeowners in NY, NJ and CT who want to remedy their failed decorating attempts, no matter what it takes!  Friends and families of homeowners may also apply—if you think your friend/relative needs a decorating intervention, let us know!

Homeowners, AKA the Design Victims:

  • Must have a hideous room (that can be fixed cosmetically). Horrible color schemes, decorating “themes” gone wrong, “kitschy” becoming clutter—all of these are great!
  • Must have a family member or close friend who is troubled by the hideousness of the room. (Can be the homeowner him/herself.)
  • Must have at least a little sense of humor about the room—willing to take some gentle teasing about it.
  • The room may have been designed and decorated by the homeowner, a friend/relative, or even a hired designer.
  • Home must be within 60 miles of Manhattan.

If you think you might be a victim of your own self-inflicted design wounds, apply now!

Our design expert will deconstruct your decorating and help you see where things went wrong. Then, let the fun begin! Our host will bring the room down to the bare bones and help you redecorate it—including furniture, window treatments, finishes and accessories—and this time end up with a room you can be proud of!

Taping begins in mid-June, and we are casting ASAP!

Go to their website to fill in the application for casting. If you have questions, you can contact Cole Schneider at 303-872-8688 or

Good luck!

About Jen

Jen (but never “Jenn”) Byck, aka the Fix'n Vixen, is a Toronto-based freelance writer and communication consultant who is undoubtedly home fixated (she is also TV fixated, really bad TV fixated and donut fixated). Her approach to home improvement has been rather trial and error, the latter of which is evidenced by the amount of spackle she buys on an annual basis.
