1 This show just oozed sappiness! And I found it depressing that afterwards many of the families were not even able to keep their homes due to them being too elaborate and costly! -- Submitted By: (TomPettyFan) on November 15, 2018, 8:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Somebody needed wheelchair ramps and the doors widened and instead the house was knocked down and a palace was built in its place. Lending a hand to someone who needs it is never a bad thing, but this show just went way over the top. -- Submitted By: (Bryan527) on June 25, 2012, 3:45 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I can't stand how half the families on this show are people who are poor because they keep pooping out kids. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on January 1, 2010, 10:00 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I haven't seen this show very often, but probably the first thing I wondered was how these incredibly down-on-their-luck families could subsequently afford to heat and maintain a house which has now tripled in size. I've seen a couple of episodes where the family had its existing mortgage paid off and another one where the builders installed solar panels and energy-efficient appliances, but I don't know (nor do I care) if those instances are the norm or the exception. -- Submitted By: (Nature_Boy) on December 31, 2009, 6:02 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I agree with the "What makeover?" reason. They're not making over the existing house; they're knocking it down and starting all over. More importantly, though, the new houses are so fancy one wonders how the families can afford the upkeep. When I started seeing stories online about "makeover" families losing their new houses because they were unaffordable (NOT because of questionable financial decisions like putting the new home up as collateral for a loan), that put the show on the "BTF Watchlist" as far as I was concerned. (Definition: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/watchlist) However, the jury is still out on whether this issue makes the show go BTF. I've heard that they're supposed to be dialing back how snazzy the new homes are, and making efforts to make them more sustainable, but I really haven't noticed it on any episodes I've seen recently (which isn't all that many). All the same, the show remains on the watchlist. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on December 31, 2009, 10:49 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 This is basically "Pimp my Habitate For Humanity." For as much they can put into one house, they could've made two or three houses for families. I liked it at first, but I eventually got bored of it because it felt like a "Same story, different family" show. -- Submitted By: (mamaluigi) on September 27, 2009, 8:03 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 In 2004, I was asked to put together a package for a family who wanted consideration to have their home made over on this program. We made videos, took pictures and collected several newspaper articles about this group who had adopted 12 children and helped take care of at least a dozen more foster kids. Never got one response from ABC or the show's producers. Later, after seeing some of the people who DID win, I thought to myself, "What a crock of s**t." I know many more people will be rejected, but some of the winners actually had fairly nice homes to begin with. Thus, I believe this show boned on Day One (if that's conceivable). Oh, and then there's always Ty and his group of crying reprobates. Bitter, oh a tad ... -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 16, 2009, 10:32 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Day one for me! At first, I watched a few episodes because I very stupidly assumed this would be like New Yankee, This Old House, Bob Vila, Tool Time, etc. all those genius home shows! Silly little me. Instead, I've been bitten by the reality bug...AGAIN! Hey, someday, there should be a "game show" called "Quest for the Million Dollar Prize" and it's actually a reality show about the next great game show host!
