HGTV Design Star judge and host of HGTV's Candice Tells All, Candice Olson,
a leading designer in the United States and Canada, began her career in
commercial and residential design after graduating from the School of
Interior Design at Ryerson University in Toronto. Candice received accolades
and media attention for her distinctive and exceptional work before moving
her design career to television. In fact, earlier in her career, The New
York Times identified her as "one to watch." Candice's foray into TV began
when a Canadian station profiled one of her award-winning design projects.

led to a weekly stint as a design contributor to the show. Today, Candice
can be seen as the host and designer on HGTV's Candice Tells All and Divine
Design. She has been featured on the Today show, Live! With Regis and
Kelly, The View and The Oprah Winfrey Show. In addition, Candice writes
