Are you a fan of HGTV shows? Do you ever wonder if they are real or just scripted? It's no secret that many of the shows on HGTV are not entirely accurate, but some are more realistic than others. In this article, we'll take a look at the truth behind some of the most popular home shows on the network and uncover what's really going on behind the scenes. At the end of the day, both Cleary and Bradshaw agree that it's perfectly fine to be a fan of these shows, but to remember that they are made to entertain and not reflect real life. While none of the programs is entirely accurate, some are more realistic than others. Scenarios such as finally finding the perfect home or getting an incredible renovation are the dream of any potential homeowner.
HGTV shows transform these fantasies into reality for a lot of people, or at least that's what it looks like when they're all edited together. You might not want to be on one of the network's most popular shows. By hiring faulty contractors and completely ignoring your design choices, HGTV can take your dream home and turn it into a nightmare behind the scenes.
Love It or List Itis one of the programs that has attracted attention because in each different situation it continues to follow the same format. If you have ever questioned the legitimacy of House Hunters, you should know that you are not alone and for many it is common knowledge now that the program is written. Viewers who are skeptical about Beachfront Bargain Hunt being real have had good reason to be, as it is another HGTV show that is absolutely 100% fake.
The guys we see in that series aren't really looking for a good deal on a beachfront property because they too have found and bought their house. Like many of the other shows on the network, Property Brothers also works with couples who have already bought their home. So if you already have a house, why are you going to different places with Drew? Well, it's all set up because it has to look like it's doing something, right? As for Jonathan, he's not that involved in the demolition either. Every year, the channel holds the HGTV Dream House Sweepstakes, where a fabulous design house is given away along with several extravagant prizes such as cars and boats. This is one of the few times when viewers can actually get something out of watching an HGTV show. At the end of the day, it's important to remember that these shows are made for entertainment purposes only.
While some may be more realistic than others, none of them accurately reflect real life. So if you're looking for an accurate representation of what it's like to buy or renovate a home, you're better off looking elsewhere.
