That’s right. Where are all the past winners? In Canada a lot of the design shows (Love it or List It, Sarah Richardson, Bryan Bauemler, Mike Holmes) are done out of the greater Toronto area, because, as all Canadians know, Toronto is the centre of the universe (said in jest). I change the channel. Like any other comedy or drama show, it isn’t real! As a former actress, I can tell you that the house owners’ bickering looks very real to me, and also their anger, and Hillary stopping the work, as she did in one sequence. If it wasn’t for seeing the completed reno, I would have quit watching this some time ago. Sarah Richardson all go> Mainly WHY? David is tasked with finding a house that is within a couple’s budget and fulfills their needs. I like Hillary and her designs, but it is so unrealistic to take a laundry list of “must haves” and then have the HOMEOWNER tell you what they’ll pay, instead of the designer telling them what it will cost. They were so incredulous when Hilary said she had a buyer for their old kitchen…to help defray reno costs. This isn’t simply a homeowner going into it with no real plan to sell it, or a “bachelor” going into it for no real plan to marry, this is as if the production company filmed 3 different “bachelor” endings and then decided which would play better. They showed a house they described it as way out in the ‘suburbs’, good size and listed at 560,000 the idea being that you have to move out of town to get decent space. BUT on “Love it or List it” it IS annoying how the same ‘script’ is followed . I’ll change the channel now if this show comes on, which, unfortunately, is super often lately. Just saw an episode of LIOLI Vancouver, and one home that realtor Todd showed the couple was 1) about 1-1/2 hours away from their existing house 2) currently not for sale and 3) had been on another HGTV show “Massive Moves”. Same with INCOME PROPERTY. Our range on the other hand was AWFUL to keep clean. . Open floor plans with room for everyone to run around without bumping into walls. Come on people… this is 21st century television at it’s unfortunate best. One that sticks in my mind was the desk that turns into a bed!!! The designers don’t seem to understand or recognise the structural issues and secrets they find when they bang the old house around. If I wanted drama, I’d watch the soaps! Some have told me they’re boycotting the show until the original hosts return or are calling for petitions to get them back. I have nothing bad to say about the show. In her smashing clothes, she is smashing looking. I think her and David are great and even though it’s formulaic, it still entertains. I wish the show hadn’t been pulled. It makes sense from a production standpoint. I haven’t seen the LILI-Too show because it’s on too late at night for me. While other cities were creating incentives to film in their area, Los Angeles was going the other direction and in some cases increasing the fees tenfold. That’s like reading a book and then being given two alternative endings to the book. There is some kind of loop hole that allowed the homeowners to not have to pay taxes on the improvements because it was being rented out while they were being done. I saw that episode! If not then it is likely that none of the houses shown to the homeowners end up being their true “list it” choice, regardless of the finale/reveal. And why are many homes split in half for two families to live in. now boby can replace David and Hilary ever. Now the truth about my writing here is because I want to know if you can help me as well. I tried just about everything I had to clean it, and even tried to use a SOS pad. If I was married it would hurt my feelings if my husband and another woman even just touched lips. I’ve seen her do things that the owners did not want or never addressed. I absolutely cannot stand the hosts on this show. If I were renovating my home I would expect the designer to come to me to decide which projects to keep and which to cut in a case of funding shortfall. I know because it’s right around the corner from where I live. “One of our biggest hits is Love It or List It…so we’re adding a companion spin-off series and welcoming two new talents to the HGTV family with Love It or List It Too.”. The two men I like are the kitchen brothers. It’s so fixed. Message to “Disappointed” (above): The reason HGTV has to pre-screen people for the contest shows is that in the United States, if you win something that has monetary value. Vog is made up of a mixture of gases and aerosols which makes it hard to study and potentially more dangerous than either on their own. It has nothing to do with the American recession. What happened to all of the great shows with real designers remodeling and updating and giving design tips…without a bad attitude? This has to be staged. In the end I’m not sure how much it matters if the show’s drama is “faked” a bit for TV. Must be cheap but the homes are not cheap at all on the shows. Where is Christopher Lowell? I owe you, Jones! I don’t understand why everyone is being so hard on this show. HGTV has become a reality television channel, with VERY LITTLE home improvement or design tips that we can learn from and use. she’s so adorable. Are Hilary and David married in real life? I enjoy the concept of the show but am really over the drama and bickering. think the show is entertaining. I would not want her on anything I did.This is the bottom of HGTV. So I would watch the beginning, a few houses in the middle and the end and just skip over the arguing part. He’s a jerk. The shows produced then were very interesting and had much higher production standards. No one can make this decision but you and your wife. But, I have always asked myself- Wouldn’t Hillary warn the homeowner at the start, that unexpected things might pop up when they start tearing into the walls. I know they want to ramp up the drama, but do they have to do everything the same way every time? From Tropical to African to Asian to European, all those different countries have some unique and varied designs and features. It boggles my mind at the prices and I am always wondering what these people make a year to afford them???? not my fav. My only critique as a designer myself is a little too much money is spent on staging decor. I just love looking at the houses – and the reveal is so much fun. Not only are her and her team’s designs amazing, but she always makes the effort to correct issues with the house the homeowners have no clue about. Just like House Hunters. I usually tape it because of too many commercials and then I can just forward towatch the final renovatons. If you live in a house that was built in 1900 – do you really think the house is still in good shape? no offense to canadians, they build awful places here too. Does every Canadian house have a set of stairs in the back? It is a formula show that is scripted for sure. You’re darn right! Then the couple takes a walk and argues. She can really wear them and knows how to put an outfit together. Are production costs cheaper there? I haven’t seen the new show. it couldn’t be more scripted and the same exact senario does play out over and over. Part of the reason is their annoying personalities. When watching a show like Candice Olson Tells All you very clearly tell she is the designer through her consistent work. LOL. The Top Ten Dueling Monsters In Yu-Gi-Oh! Why did they do that, anyway? LOVE the Property Brothers, except for when they have obnoxious clients. Because in the other show it was evenly mixed between loving it and listing it, I think because of who Jillian is the show is showing that Jillian is the hot new designer. The show is in fact quite staged. One wants to leave, one wants to stay. He made five living spaces out of one bedroom! Anyways; I rather watch Love it or List it rather than Love it or List it too because it seems like young actors trying to be someone else. Bad bad writing, same thing every single time. Agree with you, especially about the obnoxious home owners. Horrible show. It’s ok to say I’m addicted. My mum’s house was filmed 8 weeks ago, and is not going on T.V.until Feb.(5 months later). Just curious: What don’t you like about it? If HGTV wants to have contests, then make them fair, give ALL participants an EQUAL chance of winning! In order to be considered for Love It or List It Vancouver, applicants must be comprised of a twosome, which can include married/partnered couples, parents/children and grandchildren, siblings, or friends. This is what I’ve learned while watching Love It or List It: Hillary and her team would renovate the homeowners current house but never without some drama where they would run into some unexpected problem and had to cut one of the improvements. Perhaps, the house just need decoration and a finish basement for entertainment. The homeowners have large wish lists with modest budgets. And in this economy you can spend all you want and say it is now worth such and so. We see a one-hour rendition of a three-week process. But, if Hillary is not allowed more budget then David should not be allowed to show anything over budget. on a property brothers or even Hillary would have made a new home for that kind of money. I agree! I love it when there are design shows from Vancouver! I don’t care if its rigged or not I can’t stand the show and I feel like HGTV is cramming in down my throat with all the airings. These homeowners complain and are so nasty. So much so that even Americans south of the border have picked up on this Canadian reality show trend! My god. A lot of the homes Hillary works on are old homes and the people who want to do renos seem to have “no clue” but my guess they do. They said the two stars (is it David and Jonathan???) It seems like every home is literally built in front of a major highway. I don’t get it. Which really makes me wonder how many truly end up moving? The final product comes as no surprise to them and they are involved from the very beginning often picking cabinetry and tile. aren’t these people fearful for their lives not to mention their 6 figure homes when they decide to buy in some little town in mexico, or guatemala, or third world country. I saw this first hand when we were thinking of buying a condo in St. Croix. Ancient. That said what is happening? Jeanine and Norman saw the damage that posed a substantial danger to the family hence sued the production company, adding that the contractor was an actor. dramas are based in some form of reality), how long would a sitcom or drama last that showed someone selling a house or fixing up a house and selling it? The list part isn’t real at all. They should be filming “Hoarders” in some of these houses. I saw an episode where jillian managed to turn 100grand into decorating 3 rooms and adding a door. On Design on a Dime the 3 original people, I think his name is Lee? Also realtor`s 6% commission is totally ignored always. That is shown at the end of these shows’ credits. Ooh, that sounds terribly rude of me doesn’t it! I think that there relationship should change. Well she had a fit about everything; she was probably the most unlikable homeowner yet, but in that case she was justified. Meanwhile back at their house an unexpected expense occurs the owners display their displeasure while the designer makes a change that she doesn’t tell the owners about (yeah that happens). Those were my favorites. Even made a muss that one girl had her seperate bathroom and he had a better one for the wife since he did not want the daughter to outdo her. I still watch it but find I am turning it off. Let’s make this other wall load-bearing, which will cost thousands! I’m sure it’s the same for Love it or List it. These are Canadian shows made by Big Coat Productions, which is out of Toronto. Actually, think about the future period, regardless of age. added! First things first - You can check out the blog below, read more about me here, shop my closet here, and get on the list for my all-new presets here! God bless, how do you choose homes, people, for the show? How much time do they actually spend discussing the concept of the space/working on it/finding items for it/etc. I mainly LOVE HH Int’l. 20-somethings have nothing to do with this but the channel catering to an older audience that is financially able to spend this money. I just watched this show for the first time. . Kizzy, I am right there with you. But the designer on the show Hilary Farr insisted in an interview that the tension is all real: “The show is not at all scripted and the reactions of the homeowners to renovation realities and bad news is very real. I think the drama is totally faked and the homeowners egged on to take things over the top, but then thats the case with most “reality” tv. Actually annoys me when Hillary has to tell homeowner about a problem and the homeowners have the nerve to be angry. so i can’t get enough of her. LOLOL What they DO have is a good working relationship and it should be shown more instead of the bickering. Now it’s just people whining because they want the best house right now. hi donna, the show is somewhat fake, but the damage that a kiss would do would not be fake. The home owners seem clueless about an older home when mold or leaks appear. I have watched this from time to time. Obviously Hillary is a professional and knows that there will always be problems that come up when renovating. Do the producers of this show really believe that what we want from a decorating show is a lot of fighting and unpleasant behavior? .totally turned me off and I have not watched again since. You have to take this show with a grain of salt. thank you. I agree. They only reno a few rooms and the rest of the house might still look like crap, be too small, etc. ps: I am sorry to Jlia and her fans I am sicker than usual. Historic Preservation is one of my favorite things & I loved that show. These homes are EXPENSIVE. I’ve looked and looked for it on the TV Guide channel and haven’t seen it for quite some time. It is always interesting to see what people think is important and necessary for their homes. That show downright stereotypes us while mispronouncing everything! Why do people need someone to clean their house??? and real estate agent Todd Talbot are the hosts of this one, which takes place in Vancouver instead of Toronto. And I thought houses in the U.S. were ugly, holy crap Canada has got the market on fugly houses, no style what so ever. O = oh. Is there a reason you guys just don’t change the channel if you don’t like it? If you don’t- change the channel. Then there’s Ikeas success with Swedish. His show was great! these days. Under the contract, the couple agreed to have Kenny Gemmill or a reasonable alternative to do the renovations. It never aired! I feel the same way. Only reason I watch. The couple only like the last home they are shown, only part of the renovations are completed-the homes are always old with lots of problems, so the money goes for repairs-and the arguing seems so staged. Really? You can’t fake that. The manufactured drama is *never* fun. She could have prettied it up and installed a cool railing. One of the houses that David took the couple to look at belonged to their neighbor, and filming was done for the entire day, knowing well it was not for sale. Hillary never comes in on budget and never finishes anything she promised. They wanted to re-do the upper level and make the basement an in-law suite for the mother of the husband. Come on! Sorry can’t stand the Vancouver version but LOVE the original Toronto version!! The whole show seems staged to me. In every house? I like house hunters international a lot because it shows how adventurous people are to try living in a different country. Still, the fact that the renovation was terrible enough to initiate legal proceedings is proof of how much the production company lies to the audience about the homeowners loving the results. Otherwise, it couldn’t happen EVERY time :o). He finally said, “If most of these people would just clean up their houses and get rid of a lot of their crap, their houses would be plenty big enough for them!” That cracked me up, since he’s 90!!!
