‘Steampunk’ Preview Wednesday With Dita Von Teese

On Wednesday, October 14th at 8pm ET/PT, GSN’s new skill-based design competition series “Steampunk’d” enlists the queen of burlesque, Dita Von Teese, to serve as a special guest judge in the final challenge for the makers. In the “Grand Finale,” the final three Makers each design a family room for the steampunk manor in their own signature style, one of whom will win the title of America’s Top Steampunk Maker and a grand prize of $100,000. In case you missed it, here is a clip of the two top makers and winning designs from last Wednesday’s episode. With hosts Jeannie Mai, Guest Judge Sabrina Soto and Judges, Thomas Willeford and Kato Lambert.

Inspired by 19th century industrial steam-powered machinery, Steampunk is a retro-futuristic design movement seen in everything from fashion, to technology, to pop culture. In “Steampunk’d” the contestants (also known as “Makers”) work in teams and compete in a series of pressure-filled challenges designed to test their unique abilities to transform ordinary objects and fashion into creative masterpieces. Each week one of the 10 Makers will be eliminated and the last one standing will take home the $100,000 grand prize.

As each project is completed, the Makers will unveil their work for the judges, including the leading authority on Steampunk, Thomas Willeford; Matt King, creator, writer and director of the series “The World of Steam,” and Kate “Kato” Lambert, the British entrepreneur and founder of the world’s first steampunk clothing company, Steampunk Couture. “Steampunk’d” is executive produced by Kimberly and John Ehrhard (“Hogan Knows Best,” “Miami Social”) of Pink Sneakers Productions and Jennifer J. Duncan.
