Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Michael Urie, CLIPPED is a one-hour elimination competition series that features seven event designers, botanical designers and artists from across America, as they create sculptures out of meticulously trimmed shrubbery, plants and flowers -- designing colorful, larger-than-life, living works of art. Throughout the series, competitors face challenges and have their topiary masterpieces evaluated by lead judge and gardening icon Martha Stewart and an expert panel of judges, including critically acclaimed landscape architect Fernando Wong and lifestyle, landscape and horticultural expert Chris Lambton. Each week they decide who makes the cut, who gets clipped, and, in the end, who is crowned as the top topiarist who wins $50,000 cash and bragging rights as the first-ever Clipped champion. The weekly challenges are specifically engineered to test the gardening prowess required for a Clipped champion. During each challenge, contestants will work in the state-of-the-art topiary tent, fabrication area and world class nursery to create designs that showcase their distinctive style and brand. The competitors are presented with over-the-top tasks, such as sculpting enormous animals worthy of a large-scale museum exhibition and designing a living room with functional sod "furniture" made entirely of plants. The seven competitors are: Mike "Gibby Siz" Gibson (Youngstown, Ohio); Edward "Cowboy" Pequignot (Kent, Connecticut); Meghan Petricka (Eden Prairie, Minnesota); Jade Rojas (Brooklyn, New York); Juan Villanueva (New York, NY); Marie Danielle Vil-Young (Franklin Park, New Jersey); and Ryan Zoeller (New York, NY). The first episode of CLIPPED dropped on Wednesday, May 12, 2021 on discovery+, and the series made its linear television debut nine days later on HGTV at 9pm ET/PT on Friday, May 21.
On Wednesday, June 16, 2021, discovery+ released "The Garden of Champions," the season finale of CLIPPED. There's $50,000 at stake as the finalists face off in the ultimate challenge -- creating an immersive garden experience that shows their creative vision. Special guests help them shape their gardens and futures in a race to determine the champion.
