Making It’s Khiem Nguyen On What It’s Like to Win a Craft Competition Show

Years before all of America fell in love with Making It‘s romantic, sensitive, and highly skilled quiet man Khiem Nguyen, the master craftsman who captivated judges and fans alike on Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman’s new TV competition for creatives on NBC, I was lucky enough to get to know Khiem and his now-wife Amanda McKeever as fellow DIYers, dog parents, and Boston to Austin expats.

Last month, they invited me and my husband to watch the premiere with them and a few dozen other friends. The energy in the room was palpable, and it was pretty clear to all who were watching—even though we’d only seen the first 20 minutes of the first episode—Khiem was headed all the way to the finals and was destined to pick up a few million new fans along the way.
