13 of the Most Annoying Things People Say on HGTV’s House Hunters
BrainJet – Staff – Oct 15, 2015
If you’re a “House Hunters” addict like we are, you’re well aware that the show’s guests are, shall we say… a little demanding? Outsized expectations, budgets that don’t measure up, and a refusal to compromise are some of the hallmarks of the program’s intrepid shoppers. The guests on this list have all of those qualities.
“We were looking for something with a little more space.”
Oh, really? A great room the size of a small house isn’t a big enough living room for you? Poor you.
“We really, really hate carpet.”
What is this? Why does everyone hate carpet all of the sudden? It’s soft and warm and very comfortable to walk on! Okay, so it’s not for every room or even every house, but come on. Stop the carpet-hate, people.
“We just love the hardwood flooring!”
Oh, but… that’s laminate. This is awkward.
We really can’t stand the color of the walls in this room.”
It’s paint! One of the best things about paint is that it can cover up other paint!
“Yo, this will be a perfect spot for my man cave!”
Ugh, please stop. We understand that nobody really wants to grow up all the way, and everybody needs their space, but please don’t call it a “man cave.”
“We love entertaining.”
Do you? Do you host dinner parties regularly? Has your dining set been used more than twice this year? Liars.
“We like the kitchen, but the countertops aren’t granite.”
“And we know that we want granite countertops because of our extensive study of other countertop materials, such as… marble, and uh, wood. Plastic? Are there plastic countertops? Look, we just know, okay?”
P.S. Talking about oversell–my personal favorite, which was not mentioned in the article, is needing a big enough bathroom for the whole family to fit in at the same time. Really? Who wants to use the bathroom together?
