Sure, but I will probably fall asleep in the middle of it.

I used to find these show kind of fun, fully knowing most of it was bullshiat. But being in our house 12 years later, I can't stand a single one of them, especially knowing the formula of them all (a buddy was a realtor on House Hunters).

It's still the go-to fallback for my wife when nothing else is on tv which is annoying. However out of all of them I still kind of like House Hunters International just to see other parts of the world.

At least its not that new redhead they have on HGTV.  No Demo Reno or something. You can tell she's batshiat crazy.

/I'd watch Nicole Curtis for $1,000.

Headline "get paid $1000 to watch home improvement shows."
Very last line of article "the winner will be chosen May 17."

Oh, so it's a contest, not a job/survey. And published by an actual news agency no less. I love ads disguised as news.

It looks like it's the other way around -- the contest is to be the person who watches the shows and fills out book reports; it's not a drawing of people who have already done it.

But it's still sketchier than a college art class. The "winner" gives lifetime worldwide exclusive publicity rights to... someone, for some purpose that might be about those scammy home warranties. The prize is paid in gift cards.

Honestly, someone should contact the consumer protection reporter at one of that station's competitors to put the smackdown on the Fox people.

Fox News literally isn't a news agency. They rebranded as an entertainment company back in the Bush era in order to sidestep journalism ethics regulations. They wanted to lie their asses off without being sued, now it's all they do.

Fine just so long as one of them isn't Home Improvement.

Of course it's an ad.  The entire show is an ad, broken up by other ads.  The hosts are ads, every box delivered to the house is an ad, every tool is an ad, the cleaning crew shows up in ad T-shirts, the show is sponsored by Lowes.

None of this has anything to do with your home, unless your refrigerator just died.
Now turn off the HGTV channel and enjoy your home.

Maybe people could quit being so farking stupid too.  But greed pretty much rules around here.

It's like Drew didn't even read the book he wrote.

This old house is still pretty cool.  As is rehab addict.

At least you learn something in those shows.  And the woman from rehab addict is kinda cute.

Oh yeah. I put This Old House on another level than the stuff HGTV churns out.

Dilemma: You have to watch the thing before you get the $1000; but you need the grand to get a gun to blow your brains out rather than watch it.

This lady is genuinely talented as a designer, but I hate the format of the show they have her in.

I'm kind of sick of fake drama in "reality" shows.

And when you win, they'll say the money is hung up in transit, so you'll have to pay them $100 in Wal-Mart gift cards to release it...

/But they're A++ Supergood rated by the Better Business Bureau!
