“During our viewing party, guests watched that evening’s American Dream Builders episode, sitting alongside the three celebrity designer contestants from the show,” Thorn-Brooks said. “The party was abuzz with fun and lots of laughter during commercial breaks when Erinn, Dann and Vanessa started to really dish on the funny behind-the-scenes personal stories they have from the show.
