Cole also redesigned the floor plan by removing the walls that had previously blocked the cooking area from being open to the rest of the house.VIEWER BACKLASH
But fans weren’t impressed, as one person commented: "So they removed the character? Definitely, you could lighten some of those areas with a few white walls but the blue wasn't bad?!”
A second commenter exclaimed: "THEY PAINTED THOSE GORGEOUS WOODEN WINDOWS WHITE?! I would sob on television if this was my house and I [saw] this. It’s awful."
Another said: "I absolutely loathe the trend of painting over beautiful natural wood fixtures.”
A fourth stated: "The furniture is nice, but the all-white walls just make it feel so soulless and boring. The original color was bad but white everywhere is too much."
While a final commenter added: "From cozy to sterile and boring."BOLD MOVES
The premiere episode featured the partners using their decorating expertise to remodel several rooms in the nearby home of another Sioux Falls couple, Jessica and Nate.
With a budget of $100,000, they transformed their client's kitchen, dining room, living room, seating area, and foyer, giving it a similar flare to Chelsea and Cole's South Dakota farmhouse.
Some design choices included butcher block countertops for the kitchen, painting the original off-white cabinets black, and cooper wrap for the kitchen island.
For the sitting room, Chelsea used peel-and-stick black alligator print wallpaper for the accent wall, antelope print for the carpeting, and yellow chairs.
As for the living room, they painted the fireplace stone with whitewash and painted the wood ceiling a green color.DESIGN BACKLASH
Though the clients seemed thrilled by the remodel, viewers on social media weren't as pleased.
One said: "It was actually embarrassing how bad this went, they have 0 sense of style the house looked awful when they were done with it."
A second agreed: "It looks horrible! Also, Chels kept saying the room was too dark, then proceeded to put down dark floors, and paint the walls AND ceilings dark green."
A third wrote: "The whole design seemed to hang together except for that horrendous fireplace. Maybe it was different in person but it seemed like a gigantic white-ish blob amidst earth tones and black. Just awful. Also, would’ve 100% left the ceiling unpainted."
Others thought the designs were "hideous," harshly calling the entire project "a huge waste of money."Read More on The US SunSTAR CHARGED Inside Rick & Morty creator Justin Roiland’s sacking after abuse chargeTOE-TALLY UNCALLED FOR? GMA's Dr Jen gets jokingly called out by her lookalike daughter

Michigan State vs. Purdue prediction and odds for Sunday, January 29 (Expect low-scoring battle)
The No. 1 Purdue Boilermakers are at home on Sunday to take on the Michigan State Spartans in some Big Ten college basketball action.
The Boilermakers and big man Zach Edey are 9-1 in Big Ten play this season, but they have really struggled against the spread.
Purdue is just 8-13 ATS on the season, and the team is even worse as a big favorite, going just 3-10 ATS when favored by eight or more points. The Spartans have some quality wins this season, and they hung tough with Purdue at home earlier this season.
The Boilermakers pulled out a 64-63 win in that game, and we could see another low-scoring matchup between these teams on Sunday.
Let’s dive into the latest odds and a pick for this matchup:Michigan State vs. Purdue odds, spread and totalMichigan State vs. Purdue prediction and pick
It’s never fun to bet an UNDER, especially with a low total like this game, but I think it’s the right play on Sunday.
First off, the Boilermakers are one of the best UNDER teams in the country, going 14-7 so far this season. Purdue plays at a slow pace (332nd in the country in adjusted tempo) and it has an elite defense, ranking 10th in opponent points per game.
The Spartans also slow the game down on offense, ranking 309th in the country in adjusted tempo.
The first matchup between these teams saw a high-scoring second half, yet it still went three points under the total for Sunday’s matchup. With the Boilermakers at home, there’s a chance they can get up enough where we don’t see a free-throw battle at the end of this game to push it over.
Even though this is a low total, Michigan State has only played 10 games that have gone above this number while the Boilermakers have played 12.
This is going to be a slow-paced rock fight that’s going to be won on the defensive end. Since I don’t trust Purdue to cover the spread, I’ll ride with the UNDER.
