Due to COVID David Bromsted has had to do the show from his condo. He has done a look back at earlier episodes and reconnected with the couples to see how things are going.

Last night's show has to be seen to be believed. He was flaming so much I thought my screen would combust.

Omg! The pretty lady from Canadia and her hubby are doing a new show!

Can’t wait.

Mina and her mom continue to be adorable. The little boy is beyond cute. They’re adding more people that actually interact with Mina. I guess in preparation for when the mom leaves.

David is so extra in everything he does. That outfit from Greece was fabulous.

Music City Fix it was called, I believe. Before that one they had another hour-long show.

Were Sarah Richardson's shows on HGTV? Design Inc, Sarah 101, I think they're called. I'm watching them on DABL and they're really interesting. She explains what she's doing, explains the reasoning behind her decisions, resolves conflicts with clients. Never with the fake drama. I'm not sure when these were filmed but they are SO much better than any design I've seen on HGTV. Looking at you Chip and Joanna.

R4/R6 Music City Fix is not new, it's been on a few years. HGTV seems to run it as filler when it's out of new stuff.

Masters of Flip was their show when it was an hour, and Music City Fix was essentially the same show and people but only 30 minutes.

I did like them, but they aren't making any more, what with Kortney and Dave's divorce and everything.

by Anonymousreply 10June 20, 2020 10:16 PM

R7 Sarah's show was on HGTV - like Music City Fix (mentioned elsewhere in this thread) they would often play it in the morning or on demand for some filler.

Her Off The Grid thing has been available on demand on some cable systems or some streaming things - we had Hulu and it was there.

Good to know her stuff is on DABL. Wish DABL was a channel on AppleTV....I think right now it's just over the air, right?

I don't have cable so AFAIK, Dabl is just OTA. It also has a fantastic Australian show called The Living Room which is a mix of gadgets, travel, food, and reno and is really fun to watch.

Sarah Richardson has some of her shows posted on her website.

I looked online and believe there are additional episodes of Home Town for this season. I must admit that this show is getting better each time and I have come to appreciate their work and sincerity.

Renovation Island was a major success in Canada. I think it will do well here.

Maybe David can tattoo his ears?

R18 No, the season finale for Home Town was the episode where they fixed the house they did in episode 1 of the season that got damaged by the tornado.

But HGTV is also doing things that confuse DVRs and streaming history - where they do the little "This is mostly something you already saw, but we'll add 2 minutes of commentary on it and call it new" and then they run that on the schedule.

The husband is some big mucky muck in TV or Film. I can't place him but after the first episode he left to go work on a film in Europe. He left his wife & sister in law to deal with everything.

The sister in law is a designer/contractor. His wife has champagne taste & can't make decisions. She fell seriously ill and had to be hospitalized for weeks leaving the sister in law to wing it without any approval.

It is a freaking mess that you can't look away from.

I *love* Tarek's new show; it's miles away superior to Christina On the Coast. Tarek's Flipping 101 is actually useful and interesting because it focuses on novice flippers getting tutored by Tarek, seeing their mistakes and attitudes about learning/taking advice; while Christina's show is about Christina and her new family, and only tangentially about design/reno.

Glad Flip or Flop is returning, and Christin's solo show needs either retooling or shopped to Pop TV or Bravo.

She did some 1900s “shirtwaist” house, stuck the fridge facing a wall in a pantry room separate from the kitchen? And then paints it magenta? Ugliest shit I’ve seen in a while.

I am here for the drama - and beautiful homes. I always feel the need to buy furniture, curtains, rugs etc and declutter/clean (yet again) after watching these shows though!! Glad Scot is back with Income Property. Unfortunately, my gaydar was way off on him.

I've been watching old "Sell This House" episodes with Roger H and Tanya Memme. The design is okay under the circumstances--very limited budget and time--but they were great hosts and when they show the before and after photos, they do a static shot and then dissolve into the new one so YOU CAN SEE THE FRIGGING IMPROVEMENT. None of this whirling camera 360° CGI crap like on Property Brothers with cabinets bursting from the walls and floorboards being laid while the camera pans. After the reno, they never show before and after from the same angle and it's always such rapid cuts. They all do that. Can't stand watching these shows.

Fun fact: A lot of the shows were produced in Canada because certain provinces and the Canadian government gave the production companies tax rebates.

AND using Canadian companies or filming in Canada sometimes means the productions can pay less to various talent that appears on screen. (Bypassing daily minimums that some US unions require)

I do wish we could see more of HGTV Canada's content here in the States. It always seems more interesting to me when I see it (while visiting).

Okay I'm watching old episodes of Sell This House because I love Roger. It must have been a frustrating show to work, all that ugly furniture and tons of crap which he had to fix with a few sheets and a coat of paint. This particular episode was set on Maui. Million dollar homes that look like trashy shacks inside. The owners were renting out the lower level to two moronic kids who never cleaned. It was disgusting. Tanya opened the oven door that had all this shit in it and the kid said, "oh that's a rat's nest". There were blow darts stuck in the wall high up and he showed off his blow gun, "We use it to kill the cockroaches". The homeowners could not have been happy when that episode aired. Ugh.

The "new" Restored last night was a compilation of three earlier episodes he's done.

And this new "Flipping Across America" looks to be leftover renos from the various HGTV flipping shows. The one in Redlands was made a few years ago, because the wife in that flipping pair was pregnant and had her third kid during their last season of that show, which was in 2017 or 2018, and she was pregnant on the Flipping Across America footage, too.

Is HGTV pretty much the Chip and Joanne channel because seeing them on there constantly with their fake smiles and charm is what caused me to stop watching HGTV. I'm not sure what channel it used to be on but a few years ago there was a fun show with a blonde German or Austrian lady as the designed and a chubby Italian guy as the contractor with another builder who was really hot and it came out later he had posed nude and I think they were posted on DL.

But then, every now and then the camera gets too close and you see the work in little details, and you just want to run.

On the other hand, with regard to offering a house for a makeover - and I am truly a control queen so I shock myself - I would gladly hand over my entire house if I could get Candice Olson to design and decorate it.

I loathe those mongoloid Property Brothers, but a few years ago my husband convinced me to apply to be on the show. They had put out an announcement that they were looking for participants in our area.

The requirements were crazy. You had to already own or be in escrow when you applied, so the idea that they are showing properties to buy is preposterous.

Then, you had to have $250,000 cash or line of credit for the remodel. You could request which room(s) you'd like redone, but ultimately it was up to them. And you had to give them complete control.

There were some other caveats, but we were already out of the running because we had only just started our real estate search, having relocated from California and were temporarily living in a rental.

by Anonymousreply 196July 24, 2020 6:55 AM

David Bromstad was mildly interesting when he first hit it big on "Design Stars." So HGTV hired him to do "Color Splash." It was a decent show, but his design work (since revisited), super trendy at the time, now appears dated. He was thankfully almost devoid of tattoos back then. Now, though, he looks gaunt and inked beyond reason. In "My Lottery Dream Home," he makes no apology for dialing in on the person he truly is. In my opinion, his wardrobe choices are more questionable than quirky, a fact he's addressed in recent episodes of "Lottery," shot in his Orlando condo. In fact, he admits he chooses the outfits himself from his very own closet (no surprise, since no professional wardrobe consultant would allow him to leave home in some of the costumes he fancies). I actually feel sorry for him because the tattoos, in my opinion, are a scream for help. Like "look at me!" And the Dream Home winners are mostly low-income lottery addicts who think the height of luxury is a tract home in the low-to-mid-300s. Hardly the mansions the show's production company alludes to in promos. Bromstad says his tattoos tell his life story, although he says he regrets some of them now.

"Home Town" is my favorite show and the newest quirky hit in HGTV's lineup. Ben and Erin Napier still appear sincerely blown away by their astonishing rise in reality TV. It's shocking to think this former pastor and his artist wife had no real training in reconstruction or home design prior to joining the fray. Ben is an extremely talented woodworker/carpenter and Erin matches him with her sixth sense about what makes a house a home. Unlike Joanna Gaines, who never met a piece of shiplap she didn't like, Erin tailors her designs to the personality and back story of her clients and often re-purposes material from the house being rehabbed. Though the colors she chooses for the exteriors of the homes in Laurel, Mississippi, appear to be questionable at times, she defends he choices by saying she researches color choices from the era in which a particular house was originally built. And it always seems to work. I'm sure we aren't getting the whole story on these two, given that it's a reality TV show, but I much prefer the company of a couple who are genuinely invested in turning things around in their once-downtrodden home town.

Martha Knows Best was a fucking RIOT. I loved it.

Miss Martha does NOT go to Home Depot for her seeds, bitches. No, no. SHE flies to fucking Paris and goes to the foo-fooey seed store.

But seriously, it's funny. She's learned long ago to lean into the bitchiness.

Her gardener is kinda hot, though I want to tell him to blink twice if he needs help to escape.

They redid the gay designer's home on Good Bones, showed his cute husband.

I had mixed feelings about that one. The living room space with built in shelves looked great, it was nice that they opened everything up, and the sunroom was nice. But the kitchen looked out of place and the cabinets (which he picked) and island counter were not attractive.

AND they lime washed the exterior brick and it looked totally shitty. It was charming prior to the rehab.

I didn't like the outdoor brick before the reno but I also didn't like the finished product. They should've done the German Smear technique on the brick. I love that method & it allows some of the brick to show. The method they used made it look like they just painted the brick.

It may have had too much brick but I felt if they would have put some cedar wood on the exterior in some places it would have broken it up a bit. The entire thing inside and out was a little too white on white for me, but I know that's what Mary Designer Gurlina wanted, so.......

Watching the Good Bones episode where they converted the old biker bar and added a huge addition. I thought it looked great, but was distracted when they were showing it to the gay couple --- that one with the lady hips was most definitely trans, right?

I sometimes wonder about the Good Bones business.

They always show the houses to “potential” buyers but those people NEVER end up buying the house. Then it turns out that they sold the house to someone else. If they sell it at all!

Sometimes they end up renting the property. They make very little profit, it seems.

They’ve been showing people who want their homes remodeled and then they have an actual budget, with some profit, I guess.

It seems they make the houses super nice but get no buyers. Maybe they over-develop for the neighborhood? Yes, I know they mention when the neighborhood is “up-and-coming” but it takes time for people to buy into those areas.

He seems to have changed a bit over the years - but I can't tell one season from the other. He looks exactly the same in all 13 seasons and so do the people (fashion, restaurant interiors). It's disconcerting.

I don't watch Guy's show too much as the food all seems very similar. Lots of "diner" type food which all seems similar but he did have one place featured that I want to go to. A fine dining place located in a gas station. The owner/chef is a black guy who does Southern style food. It's outside Dallas which would be an overnight stay for me and I don't really like Dallas but it seems very interesting.

Oh hells bells, has anyone watched this "Renovation Island" show? Canadian people with apparently endless resources buy a property in Bahamas with 18 hotel rooms, 22 "villas," a big "clubhouse" and other buildings. Every single thing is rusted, broken down, termite riddled, leaking, and underestimated. They arrive giving themselves six months to be ready to open for guests. It reminds me of the Herman Wouk novel, "Don't Stop the Carnival"!

There are at least two prior shows with Brian Baeumler. The first house he built for his family. His 'off the grid' house. And now the resort or whatever it is in the Bahamas. He's hot, for sure, but as R282 says - and I've watched all his shows over the years - as nice as he can come across, there's something about him that reeks of ego.

I'm sure the overhead for the Baeumlers is not that substantial. HGTV Canada must be footing most of the bill, along with the RBC, for which he and his wife are paid shills, appearing in mortgage commercials, etc. I wouldn't feel too bad for them: that resort is on a very exclusive island, the cheapest rooms are around $700/night (going up to $2,000/night), and with very expensive fishing permits that the island is known for. Plus, they have their fingers in many pies here (Canada). They are probably the closest we have to the Waco couple in terms of turning an HGTV show into a lucrative empire.

Ben and Erin Napier seem almost too good to be true. But their mutual affection appears honest and not at all forced. And being able to talk on camera and be genuine about it is a tough thing to pull off successfully. But they do it well. Ben's craft projects are often jaw-dropping and I envy anyone who can claim one of his creations as their own. Given that it's a reality show, I often wonder how often tempers flare because rehabbing old homes can be a dirty and strenuous business. And there's tension in any relationship. But the Napiers have been doing their "Let's dress up Laurel" act for four years and I hope it continues for four more. Although I wonder about the shrinking inventory of Laurel houses in need of a makeover. Maybe that's why they are pairing up with HGTV to do the same for a small town in Alabama.

As for David Bromstad, the tattoos have become a distraction. I read recently that people who tattoo extensively are often victims of sexual abuse and use the tattoos as a way to reclaim their bodies as their own. That's an intriguing theory. In any event, Lottery Dream Home is almost unwatchable. Most of the winners claim windfalls of a million or less, so often have only modest requirements in a "dream home." Homes in the mid-300s aren't all that interesting. And David must have a tough time trying to be enthusiastic about cookie-cutter, cul-de-sac monstrosities that are more pedestrian than posh.

by Anonymousreply 295August 20, 2020 6:49 PM

I agree Ben and Erin seem to be authentic. They do have some talents related to home renovation although neither of them had experience in the field. And their restore Laurel project is helped by investors - their friends as shown in the show are all part of a Laurel chamber of commerce thingy. But I think they have done it right.

I watched a marathon of Hidden Potential last night out of sheer boredom. Meh. She only does, for the most part, childcentric suburban families and her use of cutesy frau signs like "Love" and "Come Sit" stenciled in the dining table was awful. Despite making the house look nice you know the fucking kids will have toys scattered all over like before and the yard will die. A lot of straight people with kids seem to allow the kids and their shit to take over every space in the house.

I also got involved in a show on DIY called Restoring Galveston or Big Texas Fix. It's about saving Galveston's historic mansions and bungalows. They do fantastic work restoring the original craftsmanship of those houses. What's funny is because of the difference of costs in CA and TX, Hidden Potential can only do a front exterior, main living and kitchen for 100K while the couple in Galveston can restore an entire Victorian for the same. Of course the restorers recycle and reuse elements from the house whereas Hidden Potential just demolishes perfectly good cabinets that she could simply reface.

R339 We were talking about that show upthread. I think they just changed the name to Restoring Galveston.

They do very nice work, though like Good Bones, some of the houses are so similar that they are at risk of the results looking a bit samey samey. And he's a hot little fucker.

I found out today that Erin was horribly bullied as a child. She had a interest in history and reading and didn't fit in. She said she was invited to a sleepover as a girl and the other girls shunned her and another time, playing hide and seek, they deliberately left her when she was "it" and went to another kid's house. As a result, she's very involved in anti-bullying and the Laurel CoC also went to Waco to research the impact a show would have on their town, resulting in them not handing out maps or disclosing the whereabouts of the houses they do. Apparently in Waco tourists have gotten scary, trespassing and hovering around the houses, wanting tours and harassing the owners.

Jamie Durie's show stressed me out. Using a machete to cut down trees rather than a (faster) chainsaw? Forcing the family to camp in tents in the back yard during the makeover? It was so frenetic, they should have spent the hour long episodes on one makeover, not two.

And the families all look like mentally challenged Trumpers.

Can't wait to hate-watch the next shitfest episode!

All of my current love for HGTV derives from their OnDemand choices. So many good shows that rarely, if ever, get broadcast on the network. I've mentioned 100 Day Dream Home on other threads, and will continue to sing it's praises. Brian and Mika are my favorite HGTV couple, by far.

I just watched this week's Good Bones. Why didn't they show us the color of the gender reveal? Anyone know what Mina's having?

I was drooling over the appliance package they used for that house. It was gorgeous and very upscale for Good Bones. I would love the stove, refrigerator, dish washer, etc... I need to know who made them.

Her husband asked her to keep that between them. He didn't mind having their life on camera, but he wanted one piece for them. So other than the family gathered there, no public folks will know until after the baby is born.

If LIOLit continues, they really need to shoot in an area that has some housing diversity. The NC market is seemingly 70%+ modern-built gray houses, with a handful of boring 90s-era brick houses thrown in. The gray houses are so similar they're hard to tell apart.

I've been binging on MEXICO LIFE and loving it. Same format as Hawaii Life, but those prices! I've also noticed that many couples seem to compromise on what they say they want. "I want three bedrooms, a view, a backyard, and a pool...". They get two bedrooms, no view, and no pool. ML also features some gay couples. Two of the queeniest, plucked, gays from Sacramento were buying a condo in Puerta Vallarta. I almost couldn't look at their faces. Reminded me of Evita's face when she was embalmed.

Started in the Toronto area, and in 2013 a Love it Or List It - Vancouver premiered with a new cast. Not sure if it’s still in production though. Because of the insane real estate prices in that region there was such a dichotomy between the homeowners’ renovation budget and new home budget. E.g “Our renovation budget is $80,000 and we’re looking at new homes in the range of $2.0M - $2.5M”. And in nearly every case to meet that latter budget they had to move up to an hour’s drive away from their current home.

I was a bit annoyed with the episode w/the gays. She was trying to be very "FABULOUS!" and it was a bit strained. She was really, really trying too hard.

The more important question is: which one of those boys is the top? Or do we have a double headed dildo situation?

Started watching something called Vintage Flip. A CA couple who restores old homes. Not crazy about a lot of her decorating choices but it does show interesting areas of CA that aren't shown too often. She's is botoxed too hell and back but at some point she got pregnant, had to stop doing it and then her faced started moving and she showed more lines. We laughed about that.

Re: Mexico Life, yes Puerto Vallarta is a hot destination for the gays, and it's getting hotter. Went there for Pride last year & it's a desirable destination. Lots of American gays, local gays promoting real estate & living options. The prices are so nice. I watched the ep with the gay couple (skin care queen & his partner) & found each place really charming. I'm surprised with their final choice but the low price must have been appealing with the option to build to suit. Tight space though & those hillsides are steep.

Do older American gays like Puerto Vallarta because it's easier to get younger Mexican guys? I had a middle-aged friend who lived in PV for awhile and he had several 20-something Mexican boyfriends. I feel like that's a main reason why older gays buy homes there.

That's what I said. She was far more toned down with the het couple with kids. My bearish bf cracked up with the guys in their rolled up jeans and velvet loafers. I mean, gut busting laughter.

The houses are fabulous though. I loved the one the straight couple looked at in Treme. Of course, the frau felt the kitchen was too closed off and away from the kiddies. These people must raise absolute hellions that they can't be unseen for 15 minutes.

The couple doing the Vintage Flip show in CA did a few missteps IMO in a few houses. An old Craftsman had 2 beds/1 bath and a large bonus room. Instead of creating another bathroom they did it into a study area After it was done it was just this huge empty looking space that was way too big for just a study. They could have taken half that space for another bathroom instead of leaving the house with one dinky little bathroom for everyone. Didn't care for some of her color choices for tiles.

A lot of these people tend to use the same color palettes. Those Waco weirdos and some other woman use white on white on white. Some stick too much on beiges and earth tones. I honestly think Erin and Ben do the best because she isn't afraid of color and seems to go out of her way to ask people what colors they like or dislike.
