The 2nd season of Open Crowd Source followed very closely onto the first season, debuting in November 2015 and continuing for another 7 episodes, culminating in a very special Christmas-themed episode on December 18, 2015.
There was little in terms of a change of format. New cards were added to the Open Crowd Source Machine (which received a complete Christmas makeover for the final episode, along with a Christmas-themed remix of the theme tune by Thomas Arnt Jensen). But, for the most part, it was exactly the same as the first season.
By the end of the season, a vigorous campaign was set in motion to convince Gareth, who had previously stated he was just part of Open Crowd Source because he thought of the idea, to join Back Seat Designers as a full-fledged member. Common sense was eventually defeated and Gareth joined as a full-time host for season 3 of the “main show.”
