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."
