The "While You Were Out" crew conspire with one member of a household to get their spouse/partner/roommate out of the way so that they can perform a 48-hour makeover on a room or outdoor area. They also trail the party who is away, asking all sorts of questions. The person at home then has a chance to win prizes--which integrate into the new design--for correctly guessing how their spouse/partner/roommate answered. Written by Kevin Stanford

Great Show
24 November 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love the show now that Evan Farmer is hosting. I remember him from 2gether and when I saw him on While You Were Out I kept watching and tuned in every week just to watch him. I also watch for the designs and if the people find out if their house is getting redone with new designs. The show is funny and surprising at times and I never get bored watching it. I love the room designs and I wish I could have my room made over by the While You Were Out cast. While You Were Out is a great show and I would recommend it for everyone to watch. Everyone should give the show a chance. The cast has a lot of chemistry among each other and the teamwork is amazing. Hope you watch While You Were Out and become a fan of the great show.
