Kim A. Tolman from "Hot Set" is one of the contestants in the Syfy reality competition series. She is a set designer with expertise in set, on-camera and commercial design.

Award winning, Los Angeles-based designer Kim A. Tolman ("Hot Set") relocated to the United States from her native Germany in 2001. Originally from the countryside of the North Sea coast not far from the Netherlands border, Kim studied design and was also a journeyman carpenter/furniture maker before moving to Cologne, where she designed for theater and opera, as well as mounting many shows as a fine arts painter. After moving to the San Francisco Bay area, Kim designed for the stage for productions on the both West and East Coasts, from Opera San Jose to the Duke Ellington Theatre in Washington, DC. Nominated many times, she has been the recipient of several regional awards for her scenic design.

Kim is also a noted commercial designer with projects in California and in her native Europe. Recent highlights include exterior and interior design elements for Kraftwerk, a building outside Zurich, Switzerland. She is considered a pioneer in the scenic design use of the 3D modeling software Google Sketch Up, having authored a case study for a book that was released in France ("Créez avec SketchUp: 16 projects, de l'architecture au theater"). The US version, "Google SketchUp Workshop: Modeling, Visualizing, and Illustrating," was released by Focal Press in December 2010.
