Questions Finally Answered About the Bizarre Finale of 'Ellen's Design Challenge,' and What Ellen Needs to Do if the Series Is Renewed - Television Week - according to Tvweek
This was a contest. It was furniture, more like ART than like soufflés. The original directives for the contest almost certainly made it clear that the designs were to be original. No art contest would allow the winner to win on a copy of somebody else’s design, and neither should this one. I can totally understand the logic of ending the program as they did, and I do wonder — especially when you consider the quoted conversation between Tim and Chip — if Tim’s sense of panic at not having any ideas early in the challenge led him to consider duplicating an idea he saw elsewhere. (They were almost EXACTLY alike.) (Filming the Ellen show far after the EDC program gave both of them time to work out a diplomatic discussion of the situation.) I liked Tim, and of all the designers, I’d be more likely to buy his work than anybody else’s, including Katie’s. But this is a very sketchy situation. And in any juried art contest, it’s just the opinion/s of the judge/s, not the definitive “Best in the World”. Opinions vary, people who enter competitions learn to accept this, and viewers getting bent out of shape because they disagree are just childish.

So what was this? Was this just some cruel publicity stunt to reel in viewers and generate buzz? That’s happened for sure, just not in a good way — and certainly no way to lure viewers back to the show.
