'Fixer Upper' house-hunting scenes are fake, show participant claims https://t.co/m5eJeWQBSP— Fox News (@FoxNews) November 4, 2016
One man is getting candid about his appearance on the HGTV show, Fixer Upper. David Ridley was apart of one of season three's episodes when he found out what you see on tv isn't really what goes down in real life.
According to FOX, Ridley says participants on the show have already purchased their house before being selected to be apart of the series. However, what you view on television is a walk-through of three different houses (including your own) before you secretly select the house you have already purchased.
Now, this shouldn't be such a surprise, as the application for the show does give it away. "You have to be under contract to be on the show. They show you other homes but you already have one," Rigley explained. "After they select you, they send your house to Chip and Joanna and their design team."
When asked about the unrealistic depictions on the series HGTV commented, "'Fixer Upper' fans enjoy the series because it focuses on the playful banter between Chip and Jo, their home renovation expertise, innovative design tips and families who get the help they need to transform a fixer upper into the home of their dreams."
The show is currently casting for its fourth season.
