Do you watch House Hunters on HGTV?
Those are some of the most spoiled and entitled people I have ever seen in my life.
The ones with a high budget are always going on an on about things that don't matter to anyone else, such as vaulted ceilings, stainless steel appliances, double vanities in the "en suite" master bathroom, the must-have island in the kitchen, the "open concept" living room, and a whole bunch of other bullshit nonsense.
Plus, the wives are always so critical of EVERYTHING, not to mention demanding.
And then you have poor people with a thousand dollar per month rental budget, who expect a three bedroom house in a gated community, with all of the aforementioned amenities.
Arrrrggghhh!!! These people drive me nuts!!

This isn't even remotely a secret anymore.
Any show on HGTV that uses the "pick one" house is dealing with buyers who already have the house under contract.
When you see the flipping shows calling an agent to put in an offer....that's fake too. They bought the house before they even opened the door.
Buyers get the basics on those flipping houses, but those custom tables and custom pieces that some shows do? The buyers never get those unless they pay extra. (This is especially so on Fixer Upper, because all of that is for their Magnolia business, so they can sell more.)

You do realize all these people are coached and the shows are heavily scripted, don't you? How boring would it be if every home seeker went in and just loved everything. The producers of these types of shows want you to be aghast at what you see because that'll keep you coming back to watch again a lot faster than if everyone is sugar sweet. I know you want to kick the TV screen out when you see a husband and wife walk into a 800 sq. ft. master suite and immediately start complaining "IT'S SO SMAAAAAAAL - I don't think our furniture would fit in here". But please, resist the urge. Don't lower yourself into believe that shit is real.

I think one of the funniest I saw was a gay couple looking for a house in Palm Springs. One of the men insisted that he didn't want to even see any houses that had only oval toilets, he wanted elongated. To me he was trying to tell everyone his huge cock simply wouldn't fit in a round toilet, but he never said that out loud. They would reject every house that didn't have elongated toilets when for probably under $500 you could change any toilet.

In all the time I've been watching House Hunters (US and International), there have been no regular "hosts" or agents.
It has always been some local RA who shows the buyers around, and the RA's have always been different, depending on the city.
I've never seen a repeat agent, come to think of it.

R40 Richard and Adrian have both been on multiple episodes. Adrian may be their star go-to person for Paris, since she has her fans; I think Richard is one of several for London and the suburbs.
I have to say I can't remember ever seeing the same agent twice on the domestic shows, though. And I've seen a handful of other agents on HHI who have appeared more than once - there's a Katerina Witt lookalike that I think has done multiple shows for.....mmm, maybe Germany or Austria. But it doesn't happen often. Adrian and Richard are the outliers.

R59 With some people I assume they have a business to promote, or something like that.
But I think a lot of other people are just sucked in by the attention.
Financials are small - I read that the couple gets $500. Not each, not per day....PERIOD. And that's taxed.
I have to say this: There's been a number of times when I knew an area they were showing, or was interested in a neighborhood of a house they were showing, and if I caught a glimpse of the house number, or some other identifying thing, I've been able to find it online.
(This is how I learned that they make up the prices, when they had a house in a suburb of Chicago they claimed was 1.2M (way over budget) but I found it online for 500K (well under their budget.)
Anyway, for some houses it can be easy to find them with a little Googling, and I personally would not want that attention, or have someone know that much about me and my home, for safety reasons.

Pet peeves for these shows (which depress me so much I can't watch anymore) 1: the couples who tell you they need a huge living/dining room because "we entertain SO MUCH"! Look, if your friends like you, they'll come to where ever you are. But you don't need to tell us over and over how you entertain "SOOOOO MUUUUUUCH!!!" 2: the people who need an enormous back yard for their (usually miniature) dog. There was a time dogs were just happy to have an outdoor area. Unless you're leaving them out there for a month or something, they really don't need THAT much room. They're basically just going to take a nap till you come home, anyway. 3: the people who come in and gripe about the neat old kitchens and bathrooms, practically yelling, "All this would have to GO!" Haven't they ever seen 1930's tile before? Do they know how much all that stuff costs at Liz's Antique Hardware in L.A.? Basically, they're ready to trash rooms that look how Martha Stewart would do them, with some fresh paint. Those shows are just VOMITOUS!

They were hilarious because the guy wanted an old colonial home, and the lady wanted a brand new home. How in the fuck will they ever agree on a house??? But they did.
And when the agent showed them a home with 5 acres, they said it wasn't enough land! They own 6 alpacas, and said that they need tons of farmland for them.
They finally decided on a house built in 1640 (!!!) on 28 acres of land, for 1.4 million dollars.

[quote] There was a Chicago real estate agent on House Hunters the other night named Jason, and he was SO fucking hot. Kinda reminded me of Scott Caan. Hairy, masculine short dude who you just know would throw a hot, mean fuck.
I know exactly who you're talking about! I totally had the hots for him, too.
He was showing this asian couple around Chicago, and the wife was a real nag. I was imagining the RA and the husband getting it on, lol.
Anyway, my favorite thing about him was how he REFUSED to say "en suite." He kept calling it the "master bathroom."

My pet peeve is double sinks in the bathroom. I don't want to be in the bathroom when my partner is in there and I don't need to be shaving or brushing my teeth at the exact same time. There needs to be some privacy. If we need to get ready at the same time, one of us uses the guest bathroom. If it were a regular thing that we needed to get ready at the exact same time, one of us would put all their toiletries in the guest bathroom.

The open concept, two sinks, countertops shit is mostly about what the companies what HGTV to SELL to their audience. HH used to vary a lot more, but these days, almost all of them are the same.
Some of the style ideas are nice, but honestly, I don't give a shit about half of what they talk about. I want a yard that has at least a little space from neighbors. I would love a master bedroom that doesn't face east, because I've had one that gets stuffy in the morning for years. I want to make sure there's no leaking, no flooding and that wires and plumbing are good. And I'd be curious to find out any crazy neighbors, or any legal limitations (if they won't approve minor/moderate rehabs or additions, etc) up front.
I could give a rat's ass whether the countertop is marble, granite or quartz.

If Chip and Joanna wanted to expand outside of Waco, they could. They're the top rated design show on HGTV, they can pretty much do whatever they want. The opted to use Waco as their home base because of their kids and their church and also as an excuse to only have white heterosexual couples. While I've never been to Waco, I'm pretty certain they have gays there. Now, they may not have gays that want Joanna's style in their house. I think it is pretty interesting that HGTV let them get away with having so little diversity on their show. When the uproar first started, you got a couple of mixed race couples thrown into the mix. I'm will to bet that the majority of their "home owners" actually come from their church. A friend worked on one of these shows for 15 years and there is a lot of fakery going on.

Chip and Joanna have quite the empire: The Silos (their retail store), the bakery, their real estate company, their construction company, her licensing deals with target and others. All these businesses are based on them being lifestyle stars. It seems weird that they would walk away from everything that they have built. A friend worked with a celebrity designer a couple of years ago. He had the same type of recognition and product lines but it all goes away when the TV show is off-air. They should be fighting for every TV minute they can get. My hunch is that ABC or someone bigger than HGTV has offered them a deal which they can't publicize until their current TV show has burned through the final season. HGTV is going to rerun their shows for twenty years.

The whole house was tacky as hell, from the fishponds, to the waterfalls, to the rock features in the bathrooms, to the horror of it all. And that house needed major renovation!

R182 Vast majority of the people on the show are in Chip and Joanna's mega church. From what I heard and I know people in the HGTV world, to be on the show, you had to actually pay the amount of your "budget" and give Joanna COMPLETE freedom to do what she wanted. Plus, none of the furniture stays unless the homeowner buys it. That's why when they revisit the family, it is either immediately after the reveal or if it is later, they shoot them outside and don't show them inside. Also, they only do three or so rooms. The rest of the house is untouched.

Fixer Upper, the Scott brother shows, Flip/Flop shows are generally unrealistic. They make it look like they're doing everything and the prices quoted for it, especially on Fixer Upper and Flip/Flop, are super unrealistic.
I like the other shows a bit better. I'm sure some of it is faked too, but Home Town is usually forthright about, okay, 70K will get you this. Desert Flippers, same. They don't do everything. (In Palm Springs, it's almost always just de-80s-ifying a house.) And with Good Bones, it's usually a lot more spent and you see they almost always go down to the studs and reinvent it.

Also, half the fixer upper people live outside of Waco proper. There are tons of little communities around the bigger "city" and that's probably where most of those houses lie.
I drove to Waco awhile ago and there are many, many little towns before you actually get into the city limits.
Now where these people get the hundreds of thousands for those houses is another matter. They can't all be employed by Baylor.

[quote] What do you mean unrealistic? All the Flip or Flop couples give a rundown of their expenses.
R186 For the shows where I said "unrealistic" I meant that there's just no way that the scale of renovations they're doing could be done for what they say is the budget. Even factoring in that they may get wholesale discounts, and they probably pay their immigrant laborers like shit, it still is usually far less than what a renovation at that scale would actually cost.
I notice this especially with the original Flip or Flop and the Vintage Flip show. The various Flip/Flop shows have a varying degree of realism depending on the area. The Fort Worth ones seem within reason. But the Atlanta ones, it seemed like they were always doing radical renos for like 60K. I don't think so!
Home Town just seems a bit more realistic with what they do for a budget. They are clearly not doing the entire house. Good Bones seems more realistic because their budgets are usually higher, and because they're almost always getting super cheap houses and basically almost rebuilding them from scratch. And Desert Flippers, I noticed, will keep some elements and usually seems realistic, too (I know that market).

One of the things that annoyed me about Chip and Joanne would be them allowing kids with food and drinks in the houses they had just staged. Why the fuck would you let an army of rugrats drag cupcakes and drinks into a newly cleaned, furnished home?

Anyone catching the FINAL season of chip and Joanna? It's creepy. He looks homeless this year and they both look like they can barely stand to be within earshot of each other. Joanna announced she's preggers. My guess is that the whole 'final season' and new baby is trying to stave off off a divorce.

Does anyone watch the British series "Escape to the Country"? I've been watching it on YouTube. It's more realistic than House Hunters and the homes are lovely. Most of the couples end up not buying any of the homes shown, they prefer to keep looking.
They also have sister programs Escape to the Continent and I Escaped to the Country (shows the hunters after they bought their homes).
One of their presenters, Adrian Hood, is super hot and gives off gay vibes.

She could not have had any idea whatsoever what her life would be like in changing a dozen beds (even if it's just four or five, that's too many!) a day, washing sheets and towels constantly (or paying up the wazoo to have a professional do them), making a dozen breakfasts and then cleaning up afterwards, etc., etc. Every day, being a maid, a cook, a hostess, a washer-woman.

There’s no one in the bathroom watching you shit, why is it so important to hide the toilet? And a bathroom is full of water. The toilet flushes bad stuff away. Then you wash you hands at the sink.

She wanted them all in her kitchen, as she used a different set each day. So many of the terms the men bandy about are most regretful too. A beautiful old home had lovely wide plank pine floors, and he loudly exclaims "love all the hardwoods"! It was perfect for this couple, except it didn't have CROWN MOULDING.

It's funny to me that whenever there is a balcony or deck off the master bedroom everybody says " oh, we can sit out here and drink our coffee in the morning", bitch, no you won't!
Nobody will, nobody has time for that shit. Not even during the weekends.

Richard Blanco was back in last night's International episode. He was showing properties to this Texan couple with a closet queen husband and his wife who sounded a bit like Kacey Musgraves. Richard was a little salty about the fact that the London real estate market has softened due to Brexit (that might mean deals are on the horizon). The couple went over their budget on a cramped little studio to be near Notting Hill. That never surprises me, but I think they got ripped off anyway.

They finally had another gay couple on last night. This queen from Trump country flew all the way to Madrid to be with his barely intelligible boyfriend and his overbearing parents. They ending up choosing an apartment right by the parents even though the Spanish boyfriend wanted to live in the city center (can't blame him). The pairing is not likely to last as that Spanish boyfriend looks miserable and ready to kick the American boyfriend to the curb ASAP. The dude from Trump country also didn't mention his parents so I'm assuming they don't get along and he'll have nowhere to go when this doesn't work out. That's probably why he packed up his things and moved across the ocean in the first place. Kind of a sad pairing, but it's better than seeing the millionth frau whine about not having white cabinets (there was one of those last night too).

I saw that episode as well, R398. Kind of boggled my mind that with all the hot men in Madrid, plus tourists, the Spanish guy was fixated on that drab thing from Nowheresville, South Dakota. I also thought they were doomed because they already mentioned having fights. Plus, with all the delicious food in Madrid, the American queen of course wanted hamburgers for dinner.

I saw it as well. The American seemed like he was away from home for the first time and couldn't wait to be wild and free. That's why he probably shacked up with the first guy that paid any attention to him. He will probably be used to get into the USA. Though, I can't imagine why anybody would want to come here to this shithole country.
I saw a lesbian couple buy a mountain cabin as well. They also showed a repeat of another gay couple that had a home in LA and Palm Springs and they bought a tiny place in NYC.

If he's gay, he's deeply closeted. He and his wife have 6 kids -- mostly adopted. He used to be a singer in Christian "worship" bands and seems to be all about God and religion. Some quotes from the article at the link:
[quote] "I love how God directs our lives," Caldwell wrote in a post on social media. "When I first started playing music it was never to be in a band or in front of people. I just loved to worship and be creative in it and doors opened."
[quote] "I decided to buy a dumpy house, fix it up, and sell it, hoping to pay for the adoption costs." He said. "God gave us the desires of our hearts. From that time I have continued leading worship around the country as well as renovate homes while I was here in Boise, so we kept adopting."

House Hunters had a DL two for one last night. The first was this black Lesbian couple shopping for an apartment in Chicago. The femme lesbian wanted "charm and character" like much of the frau woman do on the show, but her Kevin Hart looking huswife won out with the spacious and modern apartment. Clearly she wears the pants in that relationship.
Then, International returned to Paris where this Indian couple from Australia was looking for apartments with.....the fabulous Adrian Leeds. She was team Poovar (the meh husband) who wanted to stay in Le Marais or the 5th arrondissement, but the frau wife won out with the boring and out of the way apartment on the city outskirts for cheap. Such a waste. At least we got to see authentic Paris and Ms. Leeds again in the episode.

My husband and I love the beach house ones. And we like watching, mostly, to see the dynamics between the couples. There was one with a very attractive Colombian woman and her dorky American husband. The budget was very low and the places they looked at were total dumps. It was kind of sad watching her realize that she miscalculated when she married him. She could have snagged a richer man, but she was getting too long in the tooth to find another meal ticket and she was making the best of it.
One of the locations was practically a jungle and she said it reminded her of her hometown. So she was probably better off than some, but not rolling in riches, either.

I don't know if this is the case with the rest of you, but I have reached my saturation point with House Hunters. It started about a week ago, but when I turned it on, my impulse was to immediately shut it off. There's only so many times you can watch a fat frau and her gay husband looking for houses in bumblef*ck Iowa before you reach your limit. Sure, there are some fascinating destinations from time to time, but they are exceedingly rare and they still have insufferable couples doing the house search most of the time. There's also only so many times they can go to Amsterdam or London before you've had your fill. If I'm getting fed up, I'm surely not the only one. What do you all think? Is the show's popularity on the way down or does it have more legs left in it?

But they are trying to catch the eye of the semi-casual viewer, who won't notice that they play the same episodes all the time.

Hahaha r469, that husband was dropping handbags all over the place. Jesus Christ, what was wrong with that woman? Didn’t she hear him speak before she married him?
And did I imagine the chemistry between the husband and the real estate agent? Not that they were fucking, but they certainly rolled their eyes at each other behind the wife’s back.
I’m pretty sure he’s catting around Berlin and there’s not a damn thing she can do about it.

Those Paris apts were really nice, even the last one in the questionable neighborhood. I thought the rents would be more expensive. $2K for a one bedroom in St Germain des Pres seems cheap.

Just watched another Paris one that has to be the ULTIMATE house hunters international except it's missing La Leeds. It's so fake. First of all, the real estate agent is obviously a friend. The couple, from Sacramento, are moving to Paris so he can go to mime school. She's going to do freelance writing. They're looking for a place that's furnished for $1800 with a big kitchen. In a HHI first, no mention of needing another bedroom for all the friends and family who want to visit.
They'd lived there before in the 10th so they first looked at a gorgeous huge apt that was "way over" their budget which obviously belonged to a friend. Second place was in the 7th, closer to his school, also very charming and only slightly over budget on a quiet courtyard but he complained that it was a 20 minute walk "in the rain" to his classes. Last one was also in the 7th and very close to his school, slightly under budget, and tiny. Like they kept talking about needing to cook themselves to save money and this kitchen was built into the wall with a roll up shutter to hide it. There was no counter space. The furniture wasn't even IKEA quality. The bedroom was around a half wall, "so much room". Not convincing at all. They took it.
Must be seen to be believed. You'll enjoy the husband.

Of course, she was named.... MADISON. The young hubby was kind of cute, though, and he had fun with Richard in the bathroom with the nightclub lighting.

Some of you really think that they're documentaries.
That the reactions are all spontaneous and that nothing is scripted.
That the families actually decide live, on camera which house to buy
That they seriously considered the two rejected houses?
That they don't do multiple takes of walking into the house, trying different lines the producers tell them to say?

In case R514 was even remotely right, things everyone should be aware of with most/all HGTV shows.
(1) There is no "choice" between multiple houses. The network doesn't even work with people unless they have a house under contract. So the other two are fake. Or as HGTV would say, capturing real(ish) reactions to other houses on a house hunt.
(2) Even those reactions are rehearsed, over and over. Which is why all the people say the same thing (charm, character, let's check it out!, let's do it, etc.)
(3) Prices for any house on any show? Don't take them too seriously. We saw a HH near us and found out they were saying the house was almost 700K more than it actually was. Many of the rehab shows have budgets that are totally unrealistic. 45K for a whole house? Most places cost that much for the kitchen alone. (Some, like Home Town and Good Bones, do seem to have rehab budgets more in the land of reality.)
(4) Many of the hosts don't know how to actually rehab. They're pretty hosts that look believable for a minute or two. *cough*JonathanScott*cough*
|by Anonymous||reply 522||Last Monday at 1:53 PM|
(5) There have been cases where HGTV did obvious tie-ins with places like Joss & Main for furniture - they just did a Good Bones product placement one with Lowe's - okay, that's cool, it's at least obvious that the marketing is happening. But I think a lot more of the stuff they use in the flips is bought for by/supplied by those companies. Which may be part of the low-ish budgets, because they're getting freebies....but it's way more when we go, obviously.

- Sometimes the real estate agent is just a friend pretending to be an agent. - The couples are paid something ridiculous like $100. - After watching an episode of HHI in a city I was familiar with, I question the accuracy of those push pins for the locations. - As well as using apartments owned by friends as ringers, I think they are also showing Air B&Bs - And I really question the rent quotes of the ringers especially the freshly rehabbed ones with a whole new kitchen that is somehow cheaper than the grotty box they end up with because it's closer to work
Favorite fake: A couple years ago, there was one US couple "is moving" to England in which the young kids already had British accents.
Want desperately to be true: Vilnius, where you can get absolutely massive flats in the center of the city for like $800/mo.

House Hunters International is always the same script. He wants to be in the "city center"; she's willing to live farther away. He wants modern construction; she wants "charm" and "character." He wants something turnkey; she's OK with having to do some renovations. She thinks the kitchen is too small; he thinks the bathroom is too small. They both want "outdoor space." They bitch and moan and can't agree about anything, but in the end, they couldn't be happier with the place they chose.

^ One must have a secure job lined up or arrive with a boatload of money in order to get a Visa or apply for citizenship.
Aside from criminal background checks and DMV/driving history, the first thing they look at is their financial situation / stability because they will not allow anyone into the country long-term or permanently if they are going to be a financial drain on the system as opposed to a contributor.
I've also heard stories of people being turned down because they or a family member had a serious, incurable medical condition or life-threatening (but non-contagious) illness. They might get a temporary Visa, but citizenship isn't likely.
