Trivia

The second host, Paige Davis, was let go at the end of 2004 so the show could go to an essentially "hostless" format, where the designers would present the redecorating. This was done as a cost cutting effort when ratings began to decline. This format continued for three years (2005, 2006, and 2007), but ratings suffered as a result. In 2008, Davis was brought back as host, and the use of neighbors was changed to family members, to try to recapture audiences who had abandoned the show. See more »

Show me just where the $1000.00 dollars went!!!!
19 May 2002 | by (Parkersburg, West Virginia) – See all my reviews

For the life of me, I don't see where they spend $1000.00 dollars in any of these rooms!! The designers must go to a fabric store and purchase THE most expensive fabric and make one lousy pillow out of it or something, because these rooms just look awful. Hilda is the worst of the lot, as she wants everything painted black!! And who could forget her famous hay-covered walls?? LOL.

Have you ever noticed that these designers never really lift anything heavy when starting to decorate the rooms? If it weighs more than a pencil or a sheet of paper, forget it. Maybe the designers don't want to chip a fingernail or something. And why don't these designers stay and help their "team" get things done the first night?? What is it with all this "homework"??? I would be grabbing someone around the neck and threaten to wring it, if I was told to do all this work while "rich designer" is leaving for the night!! I keep watching and waiting for ideas on decorating, but so far.....nothing!! "Changing Rooms" is a much better show.
