HouseHunters

These couples on House Hunters (duh, my favorite show on HGTV) drive me crazy.

Husband: "Oh, these colors are too modern, they just won't work for us."

Wife: "Well, we might be able to work our furniture around this paint."

Then, they buy the ugly house with the nice paint colors.


DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMMIES- you can change the paint.

People are lazy and stupid. Obviously.

Ugh I know! I hate the stupid people that come on this show. "Oh it's so old fashioned looking in here" Um hello! You can change the paint/wallpaper/curtains/furniture! Doh!

I LOVE House Hunters and I, too, get so annoyed with what the people say. I am pretty sure that HGTV makes them say something negative about every room. Just to throw you off or something. My biggest pet peeve is when they complain about wallpaper and paint colors ... like that stuff is PERMANENT. Annoying!!!

I get so annoyed with that show sometimes. They usually don't pick my favorite houses!! And of course, my opinion should count for something! :)

Ha! Oh, I miss that show! No cable is no fun :(

I'm always amazed by those people, too. Or the ones on Designed to Sell that have never painted over the crazy yellow in their living room in the 10 years they lived there.

Shay said...

Agreed! People make odd decisions based off the dumbest possible points

I love that show too and my favorite thing about the comments they make about the paint is when the realtor says "but that's just cosmetic."

too funny

It's like you set up a recording device in my living room while I watch the show. That drives me batty! The other things that drive me nuts while watching HH:

1) the words "honey-do list"
2) the perpetual stereotype the Realtors make that every women would be most excited about the closet space
3) when brand new mothers say "oh wonderful! pretty beige carpet on the entire first floor!" Little do they know...
4) the word "granite" followed by some stupid couple being so excited about the "granite counter tops" that they ignore the old, outdated mismatching appliances.
5) How much cheaper the houses are everywhere other then the area I live in. It's seriously depressing.
6) The fact that the couples will have a budget and 2 out of the 3 houses are over the budget. I would fire any Realtor that did that to me. Of course you won't want something within your budget after you see something nicer than you can afford. Also, where do people get all the extra money for the more expensive places?
