Designer Superstar Challenge

HGTV's series Designer Superstar Challenge is set to begin airing its 4th season. What does this have to do with Parkdale, you might ask? Well, there's a Parkdalian among the contestants!

Mariela Campo tells me, "From hundreds of Canadian applicants, HGTV selected 10 finalists, and of those, I was the sole Interior Designer to represent the downtown core of Toronto (others being from the outskirts of the GTA and out of province)."

Well done Mariela, and good luck! Do the neighbourhood proud.

Thanx again for so kindly posting this. It means a lot to me, being a proud Parkdalian [our 'hood is booming with creativity and it simply rocks!] :-)

I've got a new temporary site up, in case you're interested in seeing what I've been up to...

i ran into mariela in the hood recently and had to congratulate her on being brave enough to be on a show like that... too bad she didn't get a chance to show any of the great stuff on her web site (she gave me her card with this link on it):

these reality shows are really not the best for showcasing someone's real skills and abilities. i was appalled to see who they chose this year as the winner. anyone who's been watching the show knows what i mean... but again, rock on parkdale girl for getting up there to represent. :)

oh man i need to agree with that last comment. the dude they chose was such a pretentious idiot, i almost couldn't watch the show anymore (though i had no choice, my girlfreind was addicted) lol someone said he's a lawyer and had no design background so wtf??? he sure is full of himself though. i'd hate to watch any show that dude is running.

I see that jerk who spammed all my pages from mojacity.com did the same thing to your's so that he could put a text link saying "apartments for rent" and linking back to his site.

A search found hundreds of these things!

YOu should probably delete him and report him as I did.
