On the Subject of The Property Brothers
Do you ever watch that show on HGTV called ‘Property Brothers’? I love that show. The brothers are pretty hot, though I prefer to designer brother over the realtor one, which doesn’t make much sense since they’re twins. (Speaking of shows with hot male relatives, HGTV has started a new show featuring cousins called ‘Cousins On Call’. Must be the new trend.)
But I do have one burning question…Do the people who go on the show ever watch it? I’m serious. Have they seriously never watched? Because every episode is the same. I mean, exactly the same. They take the couple to the “fancy” millions dollar house. Make them fall in love with it…then tell them they could never in a million years afford that house. The couple acts surprised.
Only they do this every episode. Why is the couple they surprised that the first house they’re shown is not one they could buy? Then they’re taken to absolute dumps and they act horrified. They refuse to believe that the dumps could ever match the brilliance of the million-dollar home. Again…have they never watched the show? Because that’s what they do every single episode. The dump house will turn out amazing in the end. Even if they try to fake everybody into thinking it won’t work when they find a sneaky water pipe that no one expected to be behind that wall or secret wiring that wasn’t supposed to be here.
So are the people “required” to act like they don’t know the scoop? Is that in the contract?
“You must act surprised when they tell you the House Beautiful home will never be your home.”
“You must pretend to believe the ugly duckling home will never be transformed into a beautiful swan home.”
“You must be appropriately amazed that they do exactly that.”
