Reality show to get Jersey touch, sans fist pumps

The new season of HGTV's "Design Star" will feature two contestants from New Jersey. Even though this season has a helping of Jersey attitude, it won't feature fist pumps, hot tubs or Snooki bouffants.

One of the interior designers on the show, Tyler Wisler, is from South Orange. He says all of the contestants had to learn quickly how to improvise.

Blanche Garcia has her design studio in Montclair and is also a contestant on the show.

Wisler says he favors "industrial chic" in interior design, while Garcia embraces what the show calls "green glam." Both designers have a shot at their own design show on HGTV.
