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!!

A friend works on one of these shows. In most cases, the house is pre-bought, & the rest is faked. This covers any potential liability issues for the show, either from buyers remorse, deals gone bad, or tripping over a step, etc.

What I cannot stand is how they declare everything about a potential house as “disgusting” or “tacky”. The poor owners must feel awful. Can’t they just say “The colors aren’t my style”?

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.

Also:

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.

[quote] They are realtors who appear on House Hunters International

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.

by Anonymousreply 4011/14/2017

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.

by Anonymousreply 4111/14/2017

Thank you, R41. That makes it clear. I was beginning to think that I was watching some other show.

I'll watch for those two next time. However, HH Int'l is pretty diverse as far as countries, and I only occasionally catch an episode where they're in the UK or Germany/Austria.

I've seen a few in Africa, lots in the Caribbean and Mexico, one in Hungary, a couple in small French towns, etc. Rarely the UK and never in Germany.

Why do people appear on HH? I assume they are paid, but is it very much? What else do they have to gain? They’ve already bought the houses. The scripts are terrible and make them look like obnoxious idiots. Is seeing themselves on TV. Really worth it? Are there other financial reasons for doing this?

by Anonymousreply 5911/19/2017

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!

I caught an episode last night with a couple from Massachusetts who had a budget of between 2 and 3 MILLION DOLLARS!

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.

That was a very interesting episode.

I would have agreed with you a year ago, but I've seen far fewer gay or lesbian couples this year. I think HGTV has made a push to the right, to satisfy the Xtian fraus that watch.

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 most shocking thing about the gay male couple was that they bought that HIDEOUS storybook house for 1.3 million dollars. Are they fucking NUTS??!!!

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!

I'm always amazed that Fixer Upper lasted as long as it did. Waco is only a bit over 100,000 in population with Baylor as the largest employer. How many people could possibly be moving there? On top of that, now many are interested in Joanna's very specific updated farmhouse style?

by Anonymousreply 18201/08/2018

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.

by Anonymousreply 18301/08/2018

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.

by Anonymousreply 18701/11/2018

[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).

by Anonymousreply 18801/11/2018

I was watching the Vegas flippers this afternoon and they showed the blonde getting clearance ceramic tile for less than half of what it was listed for.

Mothers didn't have a specific sanctuary, back in the day. The best they could do was draw a bubble bath and hope for some peace...

Other than the entire house all day?

A house full of screaming, shitting crotch droppings is hardly a sanctuary.

Viva La Leeds!

by Anonymousreply 22901/16/2018

La Leeds is fabulous! I am sure she could carry a show all by herself.

by Anonymousreply 23001/18/2018

I would definitely watch a show starring La Leeds where she made stupid, shallow Americans cry because they can't get a 3-bedroom, 3-bath flat in Paris with original charm, and and American-style kitchen for their paltry $100,00 budget

Did Adrien go red? I haven't watched HH in years, but I'd tune in to see THAT.

House Hunters is fake as hell. I've read numerous times that they require that the couple have already chosen and purchased a house before even filming. Then the production crew picks a couple of other houses to "pretend" like they're interested in. It's all just bad acting.

I genuinely LOATHED them R217 ! They had ghastly taste,and I dont care how many kids they have,that man is as gay as a goose. Their show failed because they were horrible. That,and they ran out of friends and family who let them ruin their homes.

The only "Flip" show that I watch is the Ft. Worth one....they're the only couple that seem like actual human beings and not failed actors or musicians.

by Anonymousreply 24401/23/2018

I liked the Atlanta couple, too. Mostly because I liked the big 6 foot 5 Italian dude, who probably has dick for days and DAYS.

The face is abysmal in every online photo, but he's more handsome in person. Very ex-jock mellow kind of guy.

I should say, more handsome on TV....still photos are not his friends

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.

All of the British design shows are better than anything HGTV could ever hope to dream up. My favorite is Grand Design (one season is available on Netflix) and my current favorite Homes By the Sea. HBTS host Charlie Luxton pings to me.

They had a medical resident and his fiancé looking for a house in my hometown in Florida on recently. One of their requirements was a tub big enough for them to take bubble baths together. I would love to get in the bubbles with the blond hunk if he would lose the fiancé!

Who is the really good-looking, IMO, guy in the London HHI? Gareth somebody?

OMG. There was an episode the other night with a woman in Columbus OH searching for a Victorian.

Her gay friend accompanied her and he was so F L A M I N G that both of my eyebrows were burned right off my face.

by Anonymousreply 25401/27/2018

I saw that episode! I thought Miss Thing was going to melt my TV. And what is up with people in Columbus acting as if that town ranks with NY and Paris for dining and culture?

Buying Peeps: Does this come furnish?

RE: Yes

BP: Well, it is not furnished to my taste.

No, it is not. Are you a FUCKING IDIOT? It was furnished by the current owner, not you. How is this a thing? If you do not want the furniture, BUY YOURSELF.

For real. Columbus is kinda nice in general for that area, but the houses aren't anything to write home about. Just because cows don't shit in the middle of your dirt road doesn't mean it's the Champs-Élysées. I mean, really.

You all missed a good one last night.

A hot hot hot latin guy with his Czech wife, living in Miami and moving back to Prague.

Omg, this guy was scorching hot, with bulging, veiny muscles that I couldn't take my eyes off of. He also had a handsome face.

His name was "Frank," but I'm so glad that his wife kept calling him Francisco. I'm guessing that he's either Cuban of Puerto Rican (last name Rodriguez), and between his tight shirt, bulging biceps, and ass for days, I was ready to burst!

Mmm, daddy!

He should top the real estate agent.

I agree, R261.

Francisco and Lukasz really seemed to have a connection.

Rewatched R260 and I would do Frank, the real estate dude and the hot sailor bear. In that order.

He has a few hot photos on his FB....but no mention of a wife.....hmmmm

Where is Adrian Leeds? She has not been on awhile, not happy

There were two Paris episodes about a month ago. She usually does one about every 2-3 months I think.
