I have yet to attempt an REI, but I agree these shows are best watched for entertainment value than “How To.” Especially the two guys who met online. It was actually rather pathetic to watch them stumble through whatever they thought they were accomplishing (especially the “kitchen guy” who had absolutely no clue about what he was doing). What I find interesting is how many people on these shows want to apply what they THINK will sell a house, rather than paying attention to -if not the host- current market trends and contemporary design ideas. These shows are excellent examples of how to make poor business/investment decisions. Still, they are worth the laugh.
