Brian Boitano is not the only figure skater entering the world of Cable TV programs. Kristi Yamaguchi is going to be a competitor on HGTV Showdown!!!
If you've never seen this show, two teams consisting of two HGTV personalities create a new design for a family that has a problem room. After learning what the family is looking for, a design is created. The team has (IIRC) four hours to bring the room to life. The family chooses the winning design and gets money to recreate the room in their home.
When I saw a commercial I thought I saw Kristi in it. Checking the website confirmed it!!! The show premieres this Sunday 6/28, but she will be on the second episode. She will be paired with Matthew Finlanson from The Stagers. They will be competing against Taniya Nayak from Designed to Sell and Drew Lachey - DWTS Season 2 winner and host of HGTV $250K Challenge. Here is a link to a picture of the room they will be redesigning (which is recreated on the soundstage - twice!!!) and a brief description of the episode
I can't wait!!!!
