Former participants of the HGTV shows “House Hunters” and its spin-off show “House Hunters International”, think they are spilling the beans by going to the media with stories about how “fake” the shows really are.
The premise of the show, which has been on the air since 2009, is to follow a family, or in some cases a single person, as they go shopping for a new home. The person then narrows their search down to three homes and at the ending of each show they purchase one.
One participant who appeared on “House Hunters” thought she was shocking the public by revealing that the three homes she looked at were shot months apart, and one of the homes was actually not even on the market and it belonged to her friend.
Another one said her family was actually looking for a new home because they wanted to turn their other one into a rental, but when the episode aired viewers were told that it was because their old home was too small.
Ted Prosser, who appeared House Hunters International, said he actually bought his home before filming began.
Grow up people, this is a show that was meant to entertain…..everything you watch on TV, including some news broadcast are meant to entertain you. When something isn’t working then it’s up to the producer to make it work and sometimes they have to spin the truth…..
