It is interesting that Bravo is planning to do three hours of home and garden type programming on Friday nights. Mostly because the last season of Don’t Be Tardy is gathering dust on a shelf somewhere rather than being aired on its usual Friday night.
Tonight is the first episode of a show where people looking for a new house but either don’t have the time to find one can’t agree with their spouse over major issues hand over “their life savings” and allow strangers to find and purchase the house for them without even seeing it. And a designer comes in and gets the house turnkey ready for them to move into. It’s really not as dumb as I thought. It’s a lot like the extreme makeover show where the team came in and did huge renovations and designed the homes for families in need. It’s just that in this case they are paying for everything and it’s a new location.
Jennifer and Eric are getting married in a couple of months. So they need someone to find them a new place to live. Jennifer has way too much stuff. She needs to purge her closets.
These two both want their own space in the new house. He wants a man cave, she wants a diva den. They have just over half a million dollars including everything including the renovations.
I like the first house. It does sort of look like a haunted house though. Also, do they really need five bedrooms? The master bath has carpet. Ew.
The second house is smaller, less expensive with lots more room in the budget for renovation. The brick exterior is pretty fugly. I’d paint it. The basement is flooded. That has to be a no. Also the kitchen is completely unacceptable.
The third house is adorable and the hardwood floors are in great shape. It’s quirky but this is the one I would pick.
The realtor picked house number one. They hate it before they even go inside. It’s brown! These people have no vision for what they can do with this house. The thing is this house has the smallest renovation budget. It’s a cute house on the outside. I don’t see the problem.
Well, what did you think of the reveal? It was a bit too black, white and grey for me. I don’t think the guy that painted the kitchen bricks white cooks. I didn’t like the geometric wallpaper. I thought the exterior was lovely. It was a mixed bag for me. It’s a fun little Friday night show though, don’t you think?
