The Scoop: Antonio Ballatore and Chewie
Antonio Ballatore was the Season 4 winner of HGTV’s Design Star, where he won his very own show on the network, The Antonio Treatment. He might look like a tough guy, but inside, he’s got a soft and gentle heart. His trusted co-host just so happens to be his best friend, Chewie. I got the chance to ask Antonio and Chewie to give Dog Milk “The Scoop!”
