Not surprisingly, the current decor of Evans finished dead last. Not one judge even ranked it in his or her top two.

Leong's design was very popular, and was the favorite among half the judges. Barber's design, which also featured "camouflage", came in second, just ahead of Holden's design. A couple of the judges liked Holden's plan for a rooftop pool and deck. Although Huang's design was quite plain, all but two judges preferred it over the present color scheme. Finally, while many judges were turned off by the purple color of Weber's design, one liked it for that very reason.
