'Design Star All Stars' brings back fan favorites of seasons past

Six-episode series airs at 8 p.m. Tuesdays on HGTV

The first episode Tuesday proved that two of the women do not suffer from low self-esteem.

“I was amazing before,” Younger says. “Now I am unstoppable.”

To win this competition the designer needs to meet a variety of goals, and some are intangible. Sure, he or she needs to create fast and wow judges Vern Yip, Genevieve Gorder and each week's guest judge, which in the first episode was actress Emily Procter. But it's not all about design, Bromstad notes. A part of being chosen winner is the amorphous quality of how much an audience wants to watch the designer.

“On ‘Project Runway' they could not care less if you are a mean person or a bad person,” Bromstad says of the burgeoning fashion designers, who are picked on talent alone. “This is all about being on television and likability and something that the network does not have.”
