The Property twincest show is the main reason I don't watch HGTV anymore . Joanna is a one trick pony like Miss Bromstead ,same interior over and over . Its very nice , but oh so predictable .

[OP], have you not seen Flip or Flop recently? Tarek has lost about 20 pounds -- my guess is that he changed his eating habits since his cancer treatment.
Joanna is a little one-trick pony -- I can take only so much of "cottage chic" or "country chic" -- but she's done some more contemporary stuff and started using some color. And I read an interview with her somewhere that she admits to having that certain aesthetic.

I'm so sick of those Canadian fugs. And neither of them were originally any sort of home improvement types. If you dig around on them, you'll find they tried acting and modeling (Yeah, MODELING.. I suppose for Candians their special, but I don't know).. Until they finally landed a show that infected American television.
I was channel surfing one morning a couple weeks back and happened to catch Kathie Lee Gifford going off on them, saying she doesn't get their appeal either. Apparently it's not just me after all. They've bounced around on so many shows, what they do is cliche, even for fixer-up TV shows and they don't seem to appeal to great masses of people, so I'm confused as to how they STILL remain on television.

I recently watched the Property Brothers' week long redo of a palatial ranch in Montana.
They grew up down the road and the owners were friends of their parents
I learned 2 new things-
#1 They have a super hot younger brother. I mean adorably super hot.
#2 The twin who's the realtor is engaged. His fiance was on the show several times that week. I still believe the contractor twin is gay.
If you can find a marathon of that week long redo you should catch it. They were working with a HUGE budget and the main house/stables/caretaker cottage/outdoor area was well done.

I wish HGTV would stop showing those hideous twins down our throats. They are the very definition of "meh." after two shows, their schtick gets tires. Their voices are grating. The same with the fakey love it or list it. (Although I love the woman designer) They should stick with quirkey designers Like the great legendary Joan Steffend and their very pleasing House Hunters.
What I like about the Chip And Joanna show is that they totally refigure these old houses and still keep the asthetic intact. She did her first mid century modern recently and Chip kept saying that she couldn't do it, but she managed to almost pull it off. I also like that they don't have some kind of fake drama on every show that any idiot could smell a mile away. By the way, there was an article on how to secure their services. Because they will not leave Waco, because they want to always stay close to the kids, they will only work in that area. They have a minimum of 25k and you have to give yourself over to their makeover completely.

Since I work from home a lot, I can catch HGTV in the mornings. Sometimes, on Tuesdays, they'll have a few back-to-back episodes of Sarah Richardson. She's awesome -- great design and gives practical tips.
Chip and Joanna recently did that barn conversion and while I thought it was a little crazy to have a 17-foot dining table, the overall look was pretty cool. And she used these crazy cool cement tiles on the backsplash, along with what looked to be a concrete countertop.

The property Brothers are very likeable and the truly seem like nice guys, but I am getting tired of the brainwashing. They constantly run their show and it is so puzzling to me. Also, their designs are one note MOD. In one of the episodes of their show, they had a client who said I like new things, but I love antiques more. They brothers said to the client so do we! When it was the final reveal everything was super contemporary modern and the client looked like she was hiding her disappointment even though it seemed obvious she wasn’t happy.
Love it or List It is another show which the designer Hilary is another one note designer. She is way too MOD and boring. Also, the clients in many episodes give her a lot of money and she wines that she couldn’t do everything on their wish list yet you see other makeover shows and they do a lot for the same sum of money or less.
I do love Chip and Joanna because she uses antiques and contemporary pieces and puts them together. Another thing what I love about Chip and Joanna is the fact they bring these older homes to life again. Joanna isn’t so ultra-modern and minimalist like 90% of designers on HGTV whose work looks like a toddler could do it. Also, I know she is on the DIY Network but I adore Nicole Curtis, her show Rehab Addict. Again, she is another person who I love the fact that Nicole takes old homes that are considered dumps and she brings them back to their glory days. Also what I love, she doesn’t put some MOD interior design which will contrasts with the homes as so many on HGTV do. She brings back the integrity and real charm to the homes. I think at times she goes a little too period a tiny bit with some homes, but overall I think she does an incredible job. She is a little woman who is a complete dynamo. It amazes me why environmentalists don’t praise these people who save these older homes from demolition. They are helping the environment. I think the problem with HGTV today is the fact that the designers as a whole, are all one note modern, minimalist, and contemporary. HGTV used to have a variety of designers, some focused on modern designs, some designers were traditional with antiques, and others were eclectic. NOW every dam thing is modern, minimalist, and contemporary. Not everyone likes that MOD look. I think the bottom line is MOD is an easy way to decorate a home and it’s a cop out because in realty it means the designer lacks imagination creativity and talent. Minimalism, Modern, and contemporary design is equivalent to a generic look and very predictable. It doesn’t take a lot of effort. Anything other than those design elements is too complex for these “So called, designers”
Another show Kitchen cousins. They are gorgeous handsome Italian studs. However, again, one note designers which was MOD and basically Italian MOD. It is evident they are not really talented at all and HGTV was constantly trying to make them happen. One show flopping, and then they came back with another show which flopped again and another. HGTV didn’t get a clue form the first time.
Sorry but David Bromstad was horrible as well.

Nicole Curtis rocks. She's genuine, she gets her hands dirty, and actually explains how to do some things that DIYers might want to try themselves.
One of the unfortunate parts of the The Property Brothers shows (and maybe others like Love It or List It perhaps?) is that most of the decor that's put into the projects is returned to the stores and artists after filming. The homeowners know this going in. Viewers see a colorful, finished set of rooms, and ultimately all of the furnishings are returned to Homegoods, etc. Although obviously the construction and hard materials like tile, flooring, etc., remain, not much of the "After" shots exists once production wraps. Also, the house shopping premise is staged. Applicants for the show have already bought a house that needs renovation; the home shopping and offer/counteroffer scenarios add a slight bit of faux drama and use up time in each episode. The idea that there's an open house on the day immediately after construction finishes is ludicrous, as well, for a host of reasons that people who have remodeled their homes to list know.

Also, there used to be that low budget show with that tall read haired guy who was gay and he had a weight lifter's body. He was very masculine. He staged homes along with a female cohost designer and I don't remember her name either but she was funny. Design On A Dime was wonderful. I loved Suzie Coelho show renovated yards.

The Property Brothers are an instant click for me. Nothing about their show interests me. HGTV just has too many of those kinds of shows now.
I hate HGTV's block o'shows scheduling. If you don't like a particular show and it is all HGTV is showing all day -- you are screwed. HGTV has lost about 90% of my viewership because I am so fucking sick of Flip or Flop and Fixer Upper too. I am so fucking over Joanna Gaines' overdone shabby country chic design style. It looks so cold and uncomfortable and impractical. I hate her overuse of subway tiles with dark grout in every kitchen and bathroom reno. So ugly. And then she goes shopping in flea markets and junk stores for beat up old knick knacks to decorate with. Who wants somebody else's old ratty looking crap decorating your renovated house? Sure as fuck not me.
I actually prefer Christina and her Orange County decorating style. At least it's new stuff.

Isn't that the show with the flaming gay guy in some weird marriage to a woman?
|by Chip Gaines||reply 110||01/21/2016|
Chip Gaines is a flaming idiot who eats bugs and farts when you pull his finger and Joanna has a major crush on the furniture guy if she's not already sleeping with him. They've toned down the sexual chemistry of late but now they're almost too nonchalant.
The Property Brothers is mass produced, assembly line chic. The go in ripping and tearing out original features like hardwood floors--only to reach them with NEW hardwood floors! So wasteful! When I saw them get rid of wainscoting and a claw foot tub out of a beautiful 100 year old house ---hello?anyone in the market for a house that old WANTS those original features-- I was done with them forever.
Don't even get me started on Hillary Farr. She wastes the clients' money hand over fist. She is often given a budget of nearly 100k yet some version of 'she can't give the client a desperately needed bathroom redo but then goes ahead and installs a 5k farm sink' always plays out. (Meanwhile, she is rude, asinine and charmless) If I give a designer 100k she better be giving me my GD bathroom.

Hillary doesn't show pictures of her husband and son on Love it or List so, why is it a mystery when David dose the same thing? When I first saw him on the show I thought he was gay and cute too. When I found out he has a wife, I was shocked! David used to be a scientist and he got board with it so he became a realtor like his father and he loves it. Maybe David is just a nerd and people are getting his geekiness with acting gay?

^^Can not stand that show in Vegas. That dude is gonna have a fucking stroke. He's always screaming at someone about something, usually his abused wife. The deadlines are all fake for added drama, and the set ups are painfully contrived.
They rehabbed one house that was 'supposedly' a former day care and the challenges they had with it were all so ridiculously cliche: crayon scribbled all over the walls (really? what kind of child care allows that?), broken toys painstakingly scattered around, kids snacks left to rot, piles of dirty diapers left behind. The idiot producers went so far overboard creating a phony "childcare" house of horrors, they made it look like the prior owners left in the middle of the night because CPS was after their asses.
Another one was (again phony) a former cat hoarder house, and of course there was one cat left that they just couldn't find. They could only hear it meowing in the walls. Lots of hand wringing drama about how to smoke out the cat without hurting it. So dumb.

R146 I don't think Trading Spaces was an HGTV show? I could be wrong. I do remember one of the HGTV designers used to be on it but I can't remember his name. The only thing I remember about him is he once took his team to redo the living room of a woman who swathed everything in chintz and had knock off Hummel figurines everywhere. Now, chintz and chotskies are not my idea of divine design but this a**hat went into her room and instead of updating within her wheelhouse, he basically stripped it down and rebuilt it into an industrial nightmare, complete with concrete-grey walls, black furniture, and stainless steel accessories. The woman literally cried. After that bit of mean-spirited arrogance I never could watch that guy on HGTV.

Joanna Gaines is a semi-competent stager. She is not a trained much less qualified interior designer. She literally does nothing on these projects but give orders, mainly to take down all the walls, gut the kitchen, and save the shiplap; she shops for antiques; and stages the finished product. Some of her projects turn out well, I think by pure chance, but she has made some egregious errors along the lines of the Property Brothers, who just LOVE to rip out original architectural elements. One client of Joanna's chose a darling 40's cottage and what does Joanna do? Ripped out the built ins, destroyed the original fireplace surround, and installed a black metal awning over the front door. Oh, and she clad the ceiling in the front room with shiplap like the shiplap loon she is. I wanted to physically kick her in her takes-herself-too-seriously derriere.
|by Chip Gaines||reply 190||04/05/2016|

i know next to nothing about ship lap but isn't a 1940s house a bit too late for it to be authentic?
|by Chip Gaines||reply 192||04/05/2016|
Right???? Please leave vintage homes to others who appreciate them. How hard would it have been to design around the built-ins? How hard would it have been to clean and repair the tiles on the original surround? I know many here do not like Nicole Curtis but you can't fault her respect for the historical accuracy of her restorations. I've SEEN her clean and repair old tile surrounds!
R192. yes shiplap was mainly used in buildings around the turn of the century. In any case, shiplap adds a rustic element while a 40's cottage, especially a doll house like this one was, demands a more refined and 'finished' design.
But that was my point. Joanna, like the Property Brothers, isn't at all concerned with authenticity. She is simply a shiplap loon who slathers in on everywhere.
|by Chip Gaines||reply 193||04/05/2016|

Great description, R193. That crap gets really old, really quickly. I like some of the non-shiplap projects -- the early show where the house had that cool atrium, the doctor and his wife who turned that traditional into French country, and the most unusual house was on tonight -- you walked in a street level where the kitchen and dining room were, and the living area was on the lower level and a two-story. That was an awesome house. And she's started to use some cool cement tiles as flooring or backsplashes.

|by Chip Gaines||reply 195||04/13/2016|
Ok, I am in love with R190-193. These jerks on HGTV are so hell-bent on making EVERYTHING MOD AND CONTEMPRARY. They destroy the old charm in these old homes and classic homes which have great character and it hurts to see these no talents destroy the old individual charm. Yes, the original built-ins are incredible and beautifully made. It’s sickening to take out such a beautiful thing and replace it with some piece of new shit. One time I watched an episode of Property Brothers and this lady said I like classic and I love antiques. They both said to her, so do we! What do they do? They gut everything out of the older home and put in stuff that looks like they went to Home Goods store. The lady said she liked it, but you could tell she was pissed. If they want to do that, then gut a new home. Leave the older homes alone!
I think another problem when you watch a show like House Hunters for example, the dumass fraus and their complete dumass husbands don't get it because they are so average and seem pretty stupid. Their tastes go along with whatever everyone else is doing instead of what they want as an individual. They are very, very cookie cutter robots. Also, it highly annoys me if there is something really unique and special in a home that they are looking at to buy and they'll say, that looks like my grand ma's place. They are just so common and not very educated.
BTW, there is a show I can’t remember the name of the show, but these two sisters are relators and they live in Texas and they flip homes. I think they are East Indian. They do the same thing. The interiors that they work on is so contrasting to the bones of the house. They sound like complete idiots as well.
|by Chip Gaines||reply 196||04/17/2016|
Back atcha, R196!
I was going to mention House Hunters and the idiots HGTV chooses to include in that show. Every single person who appears on the show has ALREADY chosen and bought a house. How hard would it be to find people who have chosen an interesting old vintage home? Why does it always have to be the cookie cutter houses that are featured? I noticed a show called 'Hunting Vintage' which produced exactly ONE EPISODE. I find it difficult to impossible to believe HGTV couldn't find loads of home buyers who want vintage homes. Basically, it could have been a mash-up between House Hunters: Renovation and Hunting Vintage, hopefully with home buyers who were sensitive to authentic period details and who wouldn't destroy the character of their homes ala Joanna Gaines and The Property Brothers. Speaking of, one episode has them completely destroying a century old house. Ripped out the old hardwoods, took out the [mahogany, I think] French Doors between the parlor and dining room--gahhhh!! it was horrific!

I just watched an episode of a show called Master Flip. This bubble head and her dumbass husband do a horrible job in flipping older homes. What they did to an adorable older brick home is disturbing, shocking ,and angering. This dumb frau paints the brick outside of the home black, but says its gray, then she gutted the interior of the home and put everything ultra MOD! From the living room to the Kitchen it is wide open with no defining spaces. Its so generic and cliché. The butt ugly furniture doesn't remotely belong in this house. Through out this whole thing the moron's husband keeps saying, oh you are so good at what you do, you are amazing, on and on raving about how talented his wife is that its super annoying! So painful and so sad. Mess with new or much newer homes but don't touch these older homes unless you understand their historic integrity and have the brains to appreciate them in the right way.

I've only seen one ep of Listed Sisters in which the designer sister put 35k into rehabbing the old family home--with the multiple bedrooms, levels, and large gorgeous yard--- so the Dumb and Dumber family could buy a generic row house in the city. Meanwhile they had to ditch all the family pets in the move! I wanted to strangle the lot of them. It also seemed like they ditched the adopted kids and took along only the bio kids to the new, smaller house with no yard or enough bedrooms.

All the crap Joanna uses to stage the Fixer Upper remodels is from her stored collection, now in the silos I believe. So you're going to see the same wall décor like the cheesy script incorporated into most shows.
That said I appreciate her aesthetic particularly since we have a second home in Colorado where many of her ideas are appropriate. For instance, I can't imagine ship lap in a NYC flat but it can work nicely in a small Colorado bathroom.

R169, when I watch a show, I don't give a rat's ass about their politics, give it a rest! The kitchen cousins are not gay and this has been wishful thinking for a long time on DL and complete BS. No one on HGTV or DIY has to stay in the closet for their audience like actors do. The unmarried cousin is dating that horrible, horrible bubble headed designer Genevieve Gorder BTW, the guy David on Love it or List is another BS claim on DL. Posters have said well, he never mentioned his wife, so? he could be private. I have to admit when I first watched Love It or List I thought David was gay because comes off that ,but I think he is just nerdy. BTW, I think David is an average hottie.
One of the things I love about the DIY channel is the fact that they seem like they have a lot of people on that channel who believes in preservation, love it! Its a little what HGTV used to be.

As previously reported on DL, if you are watching House Hunters with a friend, you can impress him/her by predicting which house they are going to choose. It is always the empty one with no furniture, since they already have agreed to buy it and the other two are just found for the show!

HGTV has jettisoned most of their gay hosts and I also noticed that there aren't as many gay homeowners on the various shows.

I want to point out what is super annoying when they say, this looks like my grandma's place. I think that is super rude. My mother gets pissed by that one because she doesn't decorate like that nor does she know other older ladies who decorate like that.
Usually anything that doesn't look sterile or the interior design doesn't look like the set of TRON is considered grandma or horrible or cluttered. These couples on House Hunters are the worst because they come off as very, very backward hicks. Anything that may be classic and elegant they act like it is hideous and grotesque. They are clueless about anything other than what is the assembly line is shooting out at the present time and everyone else is doing it so that is what they should like. They remind me of the type of people who would say, Monet? We are not familiar with any fancy French wine. Or they'll look at painting that is a gorgeous masterpiece and say, that that is

It's all so totally fake, they've already bought one of the houses and are often half-way moved in when they film this crap.

House Hunters would have you believe that most everyone sells their house with furniture and televisions included these days. Who doesn't enjoy a used mattress, after all.

R285 unless the home owner buys it or it belonged to them in the first place, all of the staging items go back to the store. I assume custom pieces are part of the overall budget.

I'm not sure if the linked article says this, as I didn't re-read it, but one client i read about disclosed that the 'reveal' is a complete surprise. In other words, Joanna doesn't ask for their input, which explains why the designs are often so starkly opposed to the style of house the clings chose.

They also still show Holmes on Homes, which seems to have almost completely disappeared from both HGTV and DIY.
And there's this dude, who's pretty hot (though he looks way hotter on TV than in some still photos online).

I just watched a House Hunters International from Germany.
I swear, the dude they had in the show and the dude they kept showing in pictures were two different people. The guy in the photos with the German girl was really hot. The guy they actually showed with her had some buck and/or snaggleteeth and looked way fatter.
I think the girl broke up with her BF and they had to "recast" the role!

I was honest and said the granite, back splash and pendant patterns were all fighting each other - the colors did not compliment the wood cabinets and the stainless steel appliances looked like eyesores and were too big for the kitchen......They got really mad (well the wife did) and said "the designer was on HGTV" I said "sorry it is hideous.."

Me and the boyfriend occasionally "hate watch" Property Brothers. we can't figure out which if any is gay, but we were floored when watching the Las Vegas reno on their own home and they both jumped into the pool ------ there was absolutely no bulge on either one. Their crotch region was completely void of dick/balls, it was almost concave in bulge. really weird, they have no dicks!

The Property Brothers did some HISTORIC homes in NEW ORLEANS!!! UGH!!! It was awful as usual. They put this modern crap in homes that are over 100 years old,and that calls for some antiques. What the hell do they know about New Orleans? They are super horrible interior designers. Everything they do like the 99% other HGTV designers are all focused on completely UGLY MOD for every damn home!
BTW, the posters on here who claim that the Fraus want like R322 states "Frau: I want something that has charm! Charm = old, smelly and stinky, like her gash" What they call charm is a home with 99% MOD 1% old charm or maybe traditional elements. Its sad because they look at beautiful old homes with beautiful crown molding and gorgeous chandeliers, and both husband and wife make the common stupid comment, this looks like my grandmas' house. They just don't get it. They love mass produced, predictable, beige on beige, white boxes with glass and boring, open concept, like sheep. I think this show is revealing because it reveals the scary state our society is in ,which are people who are and have dumb down to a tremendous degree. Look, MOD is fine if some want that ,but every single home? every single interior design regardless of the bones of the house? EVERYONE wants it because the rest of the population choses that design. Years ago there some who wanted modern interior design, some Asian, some traditional, some eclectic, etc. Now its one note, their intellects are cranked out from the same assembly line.
BTW, even the those who want classic elegance or some traditional interiors still don't get it. However, there are some on the DIY channel who get it more.

Per TMZ, "Tarek and Christina have split after an explosive fight". Apparently, back in May, police were called to their home after a report of a possible suicidal man with a gun. The report says that when cops pulled up, Tarek raced from the house with a gun in his hand and fled into the hills behind their home. Christina came out of the house crying and shaking and 5+ guns were removed from the house. It was all hushed up, with the explanation of a big misunderstanding.
Now, I guess the shit has hit the fan again and the couple are splitting.

Agree, R328. There is never any sort of bulge on either brother, regardless of what type of pants they wear, and yet most of their pants are slim-fit and show off their legs.
I don't find Tarek attractive at all. Plus, he's always running away from things like when he knocked down the pergola (in their opening sequence) or when he's ripping down kitchen cabinets. Backing up is one thing; literally running away is weak.

In all seriousness, it can't be easy to have a newborn baby and produce a show like that.
It may seem easy from a viewer's point of view, but it's a lot, and there's always pressure for new shows.

Love Joanna and I don't know what she sees in that bumpkin of a husband. They are SO mismatched.
As to Tarek and Christina, I read recently that they were being sued by people who bought their flipping system (ugh, why do all HGTV "personalities" eventually do this?). Apparently promises were made in their seminars that were not fulfilled and a lot of buyers are asking for their money back. There is currently a class action law suit.

Their big mistake was to try to cash in while doing the show simultaneously. They would have been better off to wait until the show was finished. Instead of having expensive seminars they should have just gone on speaking engagements or fee-for-appearance gigs. I guess greed ruined it for them.

I like Christiana and Tarek a lot because they are likeable, and I love house flipping shows. I envy what they have accomplished at a young age. They have a partnership in business as well in their marriage they way it should be. I think its not seen often for a husband to include his wife on business like Tarek does.

My HGTV pet peeves: House Hunters International-- the show when some American teacher from the Midwest wanted to live in France and insisted on having everything be just like it was in America (wound up moving into a dull high rise that looked like something out of the Midwest); House Hunters-- a friend who was selling his house was approached by his realtor to be in the show and yes the couple shown on the show has already bought the house; a 20-something whiny frau who complains the kitchen is too small when it's the size of a small apartment in NY (she should stay a week in the galley kitchen in my first NYC apt where only one person could fit at a time), and where do these young kids get the money for a 1 Mllion dollar plus house? (and yes most of the husbands ping); Flip or Flop-- Christina's voice, Tarek's flip flops, and their boring beige interiors; House Flippers (Joanna and Chip)-- using design elements that have become cliche (in every house they use shiplap, farmhouse sink, sliding barn door and a huge clock on the wall); The Property Brothers-- boring, the filler chit chat is inane, they're fugly, and have bad interior design taste.

We all knew that House Hunters was staged/fictionalized, to some degree - that sometimes the other houses were not really for sale, or whatever.
I watched an episode that played the other night where a couple wanted to move to Chicago's North Shore, and had a budget of just over a million.
They presented this house as a 1.2 million dollar home. I happened to see the house number and guessed it was in Highland Park (an area with lots of MCM houses).
That house sold last year, all right....but it was never, ever, ever even close to a million in price. (Try half as much.)
I was surprised....not sure why, but assumed if they were "faking" things they were doing so in a relatively realistic way. Claiming a house is worth twice of its actual value seems crazy.

R410, what was the alleged price of the home they purchased?
|by Chip Gaines||reply 421||01/15/2017|
R421 In the episode they said it was over a million. I think they either said 1.2 or 1.5 mil, I can't remember, but I can say for sure they were claiming it was over a mil.
The listing I attached to my post at R410 gives a history, and I don't see anything like that in the history. I can't imagine a home in Highland Park would sell for that low if it was once upon a time priced that high, anyway. I could have possibly understood that kind of difference around 2010 or so, but the market here is on fire.

The posters who said the husbands on House Hunters pings to them, I too have noticed that big time. I watch that new show with David Bromstad Lottery winners looking for larger home to buy than what they had before or mansions. If you haven’t watched that show yet, please do because it is a lot of fun and David is a lot of fun on that show. David lispeds more than Daffy Duck, WOW! He is such major flamer.

There are no gays left on DIY or HGTV. It's all southern hicks or good Christian folk who like to paint walls and put up drywall.

He didn't do any guy on guy action or guy on girl action, just nudes but HGTV found out. In fact I think thats why he was off HGTV. Its probably been close to 10 years.

House Hunters often have truly dumb people, but the Canadian frau they had on last week may win for stupidest comment ever. She was moving to Belgium, and her fake objection for the apartment they were showing her was: "But, if I look out my window....I have neighbors. Next door!"

They may be a "good Christian couple," but I have a strong suspicion that Joanna gives Chip a good pegging on a regular basis. I also think her loving mother & wife act is strictly for show. She seems ice-cold and ruthlessly calculating under the surface. That's the impression I get from her.

HGTV premiered another show with a M/F couple who renovate homes for buyers. - this one is called "Home Town". Their premise is: finding homes in small towns for people who seek to live away from the big city/appreciate a home in a less populated environment.
The show follows the HGTV pattern - the couple/hosts and their cute bantering, starting the reno, then a stumbling block to the progress, a little bit of shopping, then the big reveal. This couple is okay so far - the little blond wife and the husband is a great, big bear who (surprise!) doesn't seem gay (to me, at least). Their decorating style is not to my taste but I guess they tailored the decor to the 1917 house the buyers chose - it was too country chic.
So, nothing new to see here - HGTV business as usual. They gotta try and find some new angles though - for a while, every time I turned on the TV there was a new show with twins, now it's couples couples couples trying to be like Chip and Joanna Gaines.

HGTV has a new show called Flip or Flop Vegas, hosted by a couple - she is a "designer" and he's an MMA fighter who also does construction. The female is almost a clone of Christina from Flip or Flop... yikes.
I've watched two episodes and am floored by how TACKY their designs are. The homes are over-decorated with things like benches with white fur, giant chrome light fixtures, sliding barn doors, geometric patterned rugs placed 'artfully' on hardwood floors. They did a man cave that was atrocious - it had a white marble bar, a pool table and a crazy-big Foosball table that looked like it weighed 1000lbs. Their style seems to be "fill every corner with something".
