I am new to 3d modelling and blender and I am confused with why my mesh colour looks different to the one in DARRIN LILE's video. enter image description here

This is mine, but it looks a bit metallic or something compared to his which looks smooth. Im not sure wats wrong.

Your model is showing faces and edges, called Flat Shading, while the video shows a Smooth Shaded geometry.

Go to Object Mode, look in the Tool Panel on the 3D window (left hand panel, press T if hidden) and find the Shading buttons. Press Smooth.

It will now look like the video.
