As we've shared previously, Ellen DeGeneres is a huge design fan and tonight marks the premiere of her new HGTV series, Ellen's Design Challenge. The furniture design competition puts six talents to the test in challenges where they will design and build original pieces in just 24 hours. The resulting creations will be judged by a panel of design experts including Amanda Dameron, the editor-in-chief of Dwell magazine, and guest judges like interior designers Cliff Fong and Kathleen Clements. The single-elimination format means that only one designer will be left to claim the $100,000 cash prize and the title of "America’s next great furniture designer." DeGeneres' signature wit will lighten the competitive mood, and the designers' creations are sure to be unique showstoppers. Watch a preview of the series above and check out the show's premiere tonight at 9/8 CT on HGTV!
