Anyone watch? I saw a few episodes on HGTV then binged all the ones I missed on HULU. I like the idea of these two trying to save old houses in their town. I like them better than Chip and Joanne who foisted their kids on us every episode and at least this Mississippi couple appear to be more gay friendly those Waco freaks.
Home Town on HGTV

I'm not so sure. It IS Mississippi after all. This show just seems to be pandering to the rural market, which is fine.
It's nice to see these dying towns get some makeup, but they are still dying towns and I doubt they'll be able to sell these homes after the renovations.
They most likely made the show to either capitalize on the Gaines' success or to provide a back-up in order to stymie any demands that the Gaines make.
Where do the production crews live for the season? Holiday Inn? EconoLodge? Seriously - those are the options in Laurel, MS.
I can't relate to them. But it's catnip for people who don't live in urban areas.

The town seems fairly prosperous to me. Antique shops, cutesy little cafes. Must be a suburb of a larger city. Kind of like Houstonians (me) going out to Wimberly or Gruene for a weekend.

At least one of their friends owns a bed and breakfast, so I assume that the crew lives there, at least some of them. I do like them much better than Chip and Joanna, who I won't watch now that we know their views on gays....

Filled with f*ckable studs. The tall hunky contractor is freaking sexy as hell. The cute two brothers who are friends of Ben's and ride around with a lot are sexy, especially the little blond one, who helps Ben out a lot in his cabinetmaking shop. I'd ride that little devil for days. They seem very gay-friendly. They've had at least one lesbian couple, and in their recent shows, they featured an older gay couple. Plus they have lots of black clients, which Chip and Joanne seemed to do VERY unfrequently. The floor specialist seems like an old queen to me -- he's really sweet but has unusually good dental work for a typical redneck floor guy. Recently they've had on a young guy who is a design consultant who's obviously gay but somewhat shy. Cutey pie. As you can tell, I'm a big fan of this show.

Love this show.
It's nice to see a reno show where the houses don't cost one to two million dollars and another $200k for renovations. And I love that they re-purpose so many materials.
Ben and Erin have great chemistry on camera and often say shit that makes me bust up laughing.
I think they're aware that they have a gay following because when Erin said no one would want to get into a tiny bathtub with Ben, he said, "There are a lot of people out there who would love to get into this tub with me." Then smiled slyly to the camera and Erin broke up laughing.
What surprises me is that the show is produced by HGTV Canada, not the American parent company.

I had a dream this morning that Ben and Erin were in a Hallmark movie called Home Town Mystery.
The movie was the premise of their show but during the renovation they found a skeleton under the floor.
The house belonged to a man who was co-owner of a local business and everyone believed he had moved away.
The other owner of the business was still alive and was the person who told the town that this guy had upped and moved away to Alaska.
At one point Ben is walking around downtown and all the ladies and calling out "Hi, Ben!" and he's loving the attention until he bumps into Erin.
They found out that the living owner wanted to sell the business back in the 1940s but the dead guy didn't want to because he wanted to convert the factory for the war effort.
Sadly I woke up before the ending.

Gidding started modeling in 2000 as a graduate student, performing runway shows for Armani, Gucci, and Hugo Boss before being represented by Wilhelmina Models in New York City. Before entering the design profession, Gidding was the spokesmodel for Jhane Barnes in 2004 and 2005. He's also been on the covers of numerous romance novels.
He was voted one of "Yale's 50 Most Beautiful People" in 1999 by Rumpus Magazine, one of "Boston's 50 Most Eligible Bachelors" by The Improper Bostonian in 2002, one of "Atlanta's 50 Most Beautiful People" by Jezebel Magazine and as one of Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles's "Emerging Talent: Twenty Under 40" in 2008.

Love this show. They are a cute couple, and I so want to do nasty things to Ben Napier.
Like others have noted, the show's charm is the fact that the homes and renovations are affordable and their re-use of material. They don't destroy the character of the homes. They also have some sense of design. Joanna just puts up a barn door, a long table "for entertaining" (something which most people never do as much as they say they will), or an "art piece" that means something special to the couple (invariably a biblical verse).
Plus, that Mississippi town is charming. Have you people ever been to Waco? Seriously?

OP, I also love Home Town. Only found it recently and have already seen every episode. What I like to see, from my costly perch in CA, is the low price of those charming old homes and the great job they do restoring and furnishing them. The style of the places they do is comfy and inviting. I'm enjoying the whole fantasy of the quaint small town. I also like the couple, they don't get on my nerves like other design hosts do. They seem natural and quirky. The wife's clothes are perfect for her. Not quite uber frau but they fit her style. But, it is Mississippi after all and I could never live there. I do know a very liberal woman who resides in one of those towns and she's doing her best to buck the tide.

That was the restaurant owner R262. Love that little house. One of the homes they did came up on the market awhile back. A beautiful little cottage with a porch for two transplanted doctors. The had to relocate again.

I agree that episode was touching and I truly believe the remodeling was done well and with love. If you have noticed, they have subsequently met for lunch and filmed in her cafe. True home town people.

I watched My Lottery Dream Home last night. David was quarantined at home but he contacted 2 past winners to see how they're doing in their homes.
OMG! He looked so fabulous in the past episodes. Not a single tattoo and not so ghastly thin.

Agree, R267. David looks like a circus freak now, with those crazy tattoos on the front of his neck and the Phyllis Diller costumes he wears. He was much more attractive in his earlier days.

I know David is kind of a hot mess, but I have to admit, I love watching him flaunt his big gay MARY ass in these little provincial towns with no apologies and making everyone around him deal with it.
I don't think he's had any gay men on the show yet? Maybe we just don't do lotteries. However the other day I saw an episode with a cute little latino thug looking guy, who looked like Mamma's dream version of caged meat, however he was single and sooooo friendly with David. At the end of the episode when they have the "Family and Friends" over to celebrate their new home, he was accompanied by a very good looking black gentleman and a battalion of cane wielding old lesbians. This is in the middle of nowhere Massachusetts, too.

There are a lot of winners from Massachusetts, Florida as well.
He looked like a hot mess on his show last night but he is still adorable. I hate all the tats.
His condo is tiny! I thought the network paid better than that 😛.
I also loved his Easter tree, I wonder who the shirtless guy was that was helping him decorate. They didn’t show his face.
Anyway, they’re doing another show next week.

The best part of last night's episode was revealing that David hooked up with the cousin of the first woman. They even showed a pic of the cousin with David. The cousin was a hottie.
The second lady was one of my favorites. She was the feisty senior citizen from Cambridge who hit the lotto. I'm so glad they revisited her because she was such a trip.
David's condo was tricked out for Easter.. He said he goes really all out decorating for the holidays. He showed photos of how he decorates for Xmas, Halloween, etc. Last year he had 40 something trees in his place. The most shocking thing to me was his bed. The rest of the condo's decor was that glam vibe but his bed was a very plain black iron bed. It was dressed beautifully but the bed didn't mesh IMO.
David's appearance may have totally changed but he really has a very engaging and sweet demeanor.

Anyone watch last night's Bargain Mansions?
How in the world can she do such massive renos with such a small budget?
The first phase was $75000 and it entailed the ground floor and all the outside. The outside included building a carriage house with a 2 car garage and a substanial driveway as well as the usual thins. Then the ground floor had to have all new floors, a custom kitchen, rebuilding a fireplace, adding a laundry room, etc...
How can you do all that & have gorgeous fishes for $75000??
She also had a $75000 budget for phase 2 which was reno-ing the second & third floors.

R317 I got the feeling that they lived elsewhere, the efficiency was just a crash place so if they worked late and opened early they could sleep there.
But I think they shared their other house so yeah, lovers seems a likely explanation.

I still like this show but after binge watching all of the seasons I got a little burned out. Now, I just watch from On Demand and fast forward through boring parts.

I was watching HGTV today and a commercial came on for a new show starting Thursday called Design at Your Door.
All of the main HGTV talent will be participating.
Any way, they showed a clip of the woman from Bargain Mansions & she was totally unrecognizable. I had to rewind & I only ID'd her because of her voice.
She has either lost a ton of weight and/or gotten a face lift. I think both. It also looks like she cut off that limp stringy hair. It was bouncy, lush & wavy.
