I probably watch too much reality tv- there’s just something about it that’s so intriguing. Maybe because most (if not all) of it is so over the top, out there! I guess it’s just fun to watch people act crazy! I have written a while back here about my love for the reality show Flipping Out. To me, it’s laugh out loud funny- Jeff and Jenny make a hilarious team. This season has changed a bit, since Jeff no longer flips houses, but does designing and renovating for clients instead. Either way- I’m still hooked!
And then there’s the new bravo reality show, Million Dollar Decorators. As ridiculous and unrealistic as this show may be, I still find it fun to laugh at, explore the designs and actually see what these super expensive items look like. (To me, they still don’t look like they should cost that much. What do you think?)
I know this show has been discussed on many blogs already, but I’m interested to hear your opinion- do you watch it? For me, I just take this show with a grain of salt- it in no way shows realistic design as I see it. I would never dream of spending $30,000 on a rug, $16,000 on an end table or believe that spending $50,000 on a room is a tight budget. And for the most part, these designers have icky personalities. But, I might just like it because it’s so out there and unrealistic. I guess that’s what reality tv is all about. So as crazy as it is, I watch these shows!
