Tonight's episode of Top Design marks the conclusion of the sophomore season of Bravo's competitive reality series that features interior designers as they compete to win cash and the coveted title of who has the top design.  The season kicked off on September 3 with 13 hopefuls vying for $100,000 and a spread in Elle DécorIndia Hicks took Todd Oldham's spot as the host, with Oldham returning as the designers' mentor throughout the series.  Head judge Jonathan Adler, as well as Kelly Wearstler and Margaret Russell, also returned as the judges.

Last week, viewers witnessed the first half of Top Design's season finale in which the four remaining designers are assigned a room in a house to create his or her vision.  The episode, which aired on October 29, delivered growth among all key demographics compared to the first season's equivalent episode.  Moreover, it also rose 13 percent among adults 18-49 and 11 percent among total viewers versus to prior week's installment.

For the final challenge, the remaining three contestants are asked to design a house from top to bottom.  This will be sort of an extreme version of this season's first challenge but with the help of a few old friends.  At the end of the episode, two contestants will be sent packing and one will be declared the winner who will ultimately take home $100,000 and whose work will be featured in a spread in Elle Décor magazine.

The stakes are high and it seems it could be anyone’s game.  The last three contestants, consisting of Nathan, Ondine and Preston, all have their unique style and expertise to put forward though they also tend to have blunders, which could lead to their downfall.

Nathan has a signature quirky style with a twist of rock and roll, which proves that he’s versatile.  On the other hand, his eccentric concepts often leave room for some error.  Ondine can certainly impress the crowd with her modern yet comfortable interiors but can also lose the judges' faith as she easily crumbles under pressure.  As for Preston, he has a chic and polished style that spells he’s a great designer though his designs often lack his personal touch.

Find out who will be named winner of the second season of Top Design tonight at 10pm ET/PT on Bravo.
