Did anyone see Design Star last night?

This being the third "series' of it I have followed, I have begun to wonder.

Anyone notice that invariably, when a carpenter is provided ONE of the contestants gets someone who is totally incompetent, and that contestant is thereby compromised in her/his design. Same thing happened last night and the designer was voted off, even though the design was perfectly responsive to the requests and needs (and tastes) of the client...

I'm beginning to think that
a) the finalists HAVE to be one male and one female
b) the finalists have to be "out of the box" or "off the wall" in at least one aspect of design
c) the judges wouldn't find a place designing in MY home!

Any opinions?
