Jennifer Bertrand Wins Design Star

at . Comments

Jennifer Bertrand won the third season of Design Star last night. She overcame a challenge from Matt Locke during the season finale of the HGTV reality competition series.

The Kansas native won the grand prize package with the victory: her own HGTV show.

"It's obviously beautiful to be the winner and I cannot thank America enough," said Jen after host Clive Pearse revealed she was the winner.

"I think when Clive announced my name -- that I was the next Design Star -- I totally went into shock," she added. "There's all this confetti and your heart's popping out of your dress. It's crazy and I think I'm still in shock. You cannot describe it.

The first day I showed up and they dropped me off I totally never thought I'd be in this position. It was a long, painful road to get here... But it feels great to be here."

Hey Jennifer,
How's it going for you at this point? My name is Justina Schrieber, I'm 19 years old, and I'm from Sikeston, Missouri 63801. I watched you on HGTV's Design Star competition from way back on day 1, all the way until the Season Finale, and your smile and impression you made on everybody else there, your great positive attitude, your lovely voice, your style of clothing, your wonderful talents, and last but not least the way you say Bye, really has made a huge impact on my life trumendously, and I want to personally commend you for all of your hard work that you did to make it here to this point. God is really happy for you. He's the one that made it possible for you to do this for America. I'm sorry you had to put up with Tracee and Clive all that whole time but you did it. Tracee wanted to argue with you all the time but you kept your cool, though. When Clive announced that you were our next Design Star, I was screaming, crying, clapping, and laughing for joy. Well, I just wanted you to know that even with all the heartache you had to put up with all the time getting to where you're at right now, I am so very proud of you Jennifer. You just decorate and design to your hearts content girlfriend. Don't never ever give up. I can't wait to see your show on HGTV, it's gonna be very spectacular and funny. I love you girlfriend from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication. May the Lord Bless you, may the Lord Keep you, and may the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and may the Lord be Gracious unto you. I love you Jennifer. Keep up the hard work, and dedication. Bye. Sincerely,
Your #1 Fan,
Justina Schrieber
