I Have a New Favorite On Design Star...


With Mikey V. gone (and apparently suspended from his police job), I now have a new favorite designtestant - Matt Locke. Check out his amazing website here.

Yes, I know I've called him "Robot Happy Guy", "boring", and said he had "man boobs". But guess what? - my snarky heart melted when Matt HIMSELF sent me an email:

Hi David,

Just wanted to write a quick note and tell you I think your blog is hilarious! You're not my biggest fan, but I still love your recaps (and your Shear Genius posts even more). Wanna do an interview sometime? Might be fun.

Cheers,

Matt Locke


Ok, seriously ya'll, that was adorable. HE LIKES MY TOP HAIRCUT RECAPS!! After a brief email exchange, we decided to do a short interview next week when he returns from a trip home to Colorado. Any questions you'd like me to ask? BE NICE!

Oh, and I apologized to Matt for saying he had "moobs". I told him that it must have been his shirt. I also informed him that many of my Dust Bunnies would prefer for Matt to do the entire show shirtless (you know who you are - MikeInBama, etc.).

Don't forget to watch Design Star on HGTV tonight at 9:00 EST.

Matt has an awesome website! Wish I could afford him. How neat that he wrote to you! What a guy! I've always liked him on the show and look forward to the interview. I'll try to think of some questions I have that he can answer now.

I wondered if that might happen to Mikey V. Maybe he can get a job in design/construction now after the publicity. Ask Matt if he knows.

OMG how cool! Matt looks like a really nice guy and the email proves he is.

Ask him what he really thinks of Tracee LOL.

I read but don't comment much on your design, haircut, and runway show recaps as I don't know much about those areas. Hence I don' watch those shows except to sample them.But I still love your takes on them and your gift for coining a phrase, and finding those absurd names that so aptly thumbnail their characters.
With actual responses from these celebs, think what an avocation this could become or even more. Think Logo. Going to take this guy up on an interview? They all seem to take your campy comments in the way they were intended- all good fun.
Devoted fan,
Charlie

Count me among those who would love to see him do the interview shirtless - my fondness for the furry has been stated previously - and he is a cutie. Perhaps you can do a better job of bringing out his personality than DS has.

You are a fast-rising star. With some of the subjects of your blog contacting you, soon you will need your own talk show. LOGO, are you reading?

Hey David,

Thanks for calling me out.......LOL. Since I'm in full stalker mode, Matt is not going to have anything to do with me.

I can't wait for the interview. Please tell Matt that I love him and I will do anything to make him love me....ROTFL.

I know the interview is going to be great. And yes, the interview should be done shirtless by Matt or pantsless, whtever is comfortable for him... :)

Jennie said...

When is Bravo going to hire you as their official blogger???

Dan said...

Well, to be fair, my loyalty has never wavered. Although I don't know if "finders keepers" applies when discussing reality TV stars.

I gave you my list of questions all ready. Rememeber, size really does matter. ;)

buff said...

Matt is so cool. I didn't watch last night's show. Tell me he wasn't voted off!!!

David Dust said...

Hey Buff - No, Matt made it to the finals. I should have my Design Star recap up later today.

XOXO

Matt looks like that guy who played Elliot the photographer on the TV series Just Shoot Me. I knew he kept reminding me of someone. I think his name is Enrico Colantoni.

This is sooo exciting! I wish I had a question to pass along, but I don't pay enough attention to these shows to have a clue. Congrats on snagging a hot interview when he gets back from Colorado.

Mark in DE said...

That is so cool! Matt has always been one of my faves. Loved his story board during the interviews.

Mark :-)
