During the seven-episode series, host and mentor David Bromstad oversees the 10 creative finalists as they vie to impress the panel of experts, including network stars Genevieve Gorder , Vern Yip and series newcomer Sabrina Soto. In addition, special guests including Susan Feldman , co-founder of One Kings Lane; Sara Peterson , editor-in-chief of HGTV Magazine; and HGTV's Property Brothers Jonathan Scott and Drew Scott, appear in episodes to raise the stakes in this winner-takes-all competition.

The finalists, whose expertise ranges from home remodeling to interior design and from architecture to home staging, must demonstrate ingenious creativity and display their star quality on-camera to avoid elimination. The HGTV Star finalists include: Brooks Atwood, Brooklyn, N.Y.; Tiffany Brooks, Antioch, Ill.; Tylor Devereaux; Grand Rapids, Mich.; Boris Eckey, Los Angeles, Calif.; Tobin Green, Tampa, Fla.; Crisermy Mercado, Miami, Fla.; Jessie Miller, St. Louis, Mo.; Jeribai Tascoe, Sonora, Calif.; Anne Rue, Lake Mary, Fla.; Abbey Vasek, Wimberley, Texas.

"This season features the fun intensity and action of real home renovation," said Kathleen Finch, general manager, HGTV. "There is a lot of hammer-swinging and tile-laying—activities that every home enthusiast has battled during their own home improvement projects."

With guidance and advice from Bromstad, the finalists test their on-camera skills in each design challenge, including an appearance on CBS's national daytime show The Talk where the finalists must expertly deliver their top room design tips to a live studio audience and millions of viewers alongside hosts Julie Chen and Aisha Tyler.

Beginning Tuesday, May 7, visitors to HGTV.com/star can extend their HGTV Star experience online. Fans can find bios for finalists and judges, photo galleries and full episodes of past seasons. Immediately following the premiere episode, visitors can watch vlog posts by Bromstad. Additionally, on Wednesday, May 15, viewers can vote online up to 10 times per day for their favorite HGTV Star designer this season. The winner of the HGTV Star Fan Favorite vote will be announced on Wednesday, July 24.
