Vern YipVern Yip = Simon Cowell?

Not quite, but if the 'Design Star' judge has seemed exacting this season, it's because he's just as serious about finding the next 'HGTV Design Star' as Cowell was about finding 'American Idols.'

This season of 'Design Star' has felt more intense and dramatic than ever, which Yip said is all thanks to new producer Mark Burnett ('Survivor') and the show's move to New York.

Yip spoke to TV Squad this week about Sunday's episode, featuring Donald Trump, Jr., and previewed the rest of the season. And don't forget, you can vote for your favorite designer at HGTV.com!
