Any time spent commenting on this episode is more than the episode deserves, but here goes anyway:
It felt like I was watching a cheap, Trading Spaces version of Chopped, but where none of the food was remotely edible, and the judges were so lackluster it didn't seem they bothered to even phone it in.
The painting projects turned out least bad of everything else on the show, but I'm shocked--shocked!--that Cayle (?) beat out the girl in round one with a "stool" that couldn't even handle the weight of someone sitting on it. At least his opponent made something that could stand on its own. And Kara was a snot.
Between this episode and the recent one where they had to use Sabrina's sister and mother as contestants, I get the feeling that Trading Spaces doesn't have enough, or any, people volunteering to be on the show anymore. Can't say I blame them. I used to love this show, but now it's a chore to get through.
