Potentially the best home renovation show of all time, Trading Spaces is making its way back to television and we couldn't be more excited. Not because I would ever want to trade decorating tips with my neighbors, but because I cannot wait to watch what horrors happen this time around. Does that make me a bad person? Perhaps. But that doesn't mean I'm not still looking forward to it!
If you're unfamiliar with the show, or need a refresher, two sets of neighbors get together and swap houses for a weekend. One room in each neighbors' house gets redesigned, and the owners have NO say! Fun, right? Well, for us at least.
If you want to apply, you can go to tradingspacescasting.com but before you do that, I'd suggest looking at some of the...less successful endeavors.
The Beach Room
We've all wanted to live in a room full of sand, right? It doesn't matter which room of the house this is. The only acceptable place for sand is the beach or the playground. Not your home.
The Upside Down Room
Perfect for when you're entertaining the floating uncle from Mary Poppins! All it takes is one loose screw to totally ruin a dinner party. Although, if it's the people who allowed this to happen in the first place, you might not care so much.
The Flower Bathroom
It's a bit...much. Imagine the mold you'll develop in the crevasses of those flowers. If you want flowers, grow a garden.
If you think that's bad, it's nothing compared to what Hildi did to someone's kitchen.
The Bloody Kitchen
HILDI, WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS? IT'S A KITCHEN. I will grant her that these people were fans of the un-dead, but even this is a bit far. They literally just hung their paint tarp on the wall as decoration.
The Straw Room
Hildi strikes again...literal straw glued all over the walls. Hope these people don't have allergies, and that they have a reliable vacuum!
The Fireplace Debacle
Doug Wilson was the self-proclaimed 'villain' of the show, and he took his role seriously. These homeowners had one request: do not touch the brick fireplace. So guess what he did? You guessed it! He touched the brick! In a big, bad way.
The homeowners were so upset, the wife had to leave to cry off camera.
The Blatant Disregard for Human Decency
If I was on the show and found out Hildi was designing my room, I'd walk away. She literally put a MOSAIC OF HER FACE ON SOMEONE'S WALL. And not even a good one, at that.
Would you still go on the show if you knew you might HATE it?
