On Saturday, help decide a game show winner

HGTV has begun production on a new competition reality show called Showhouse Showdown. On it, two designers compete to see who can turn a spec house into the more impressive showplace in a short period of time on a tight budget. (Think Trading Spaces with prize money.) One such house face-off features Dallas-area designers.

Here’s where you come in. On Saturday — that’s June 4 — the members of the public get to walk through the sample homes and cast their ballots for who has done the better job. That means you get to decide the outcome and give kudos to a local talent. All you have to do is show up to 204 Oak Point Drive in McKinney, Texas (75071 if that helps) between 2 and 3 p.m. on Saturday. The episode revealing the winner will air sometime around the fall.
