What’s the reality of reality home shows?

Shows_2As I was posting the latest casting call from Pie Town Productions for another new reality home show, I began to wonder:

Is participating in one of these shows really a good thing?

If you or someone you know has been on a reality home show, please let us know what we might be in for if one of us should answer a casting call:

Are you happy you were on a reality home show?

Was the experience good?

Was the work done on your house good quality?

Would you do it again?

Would you recommend this experience to others?

What warning would you give someone in advance?

Are there certain types of people who would enjoy this more than other types?

    We were on Designer’s Challenge about seven years ago, and overall, it was a good experience. Like everyone, they increase your budget but I felt both value & quality were worth it. I would do it again, for the reason that because they are on a deadline, they manage to make things happen far more quickly than the average homeowner. I would recommend it to people who are burned-out by the remodel process, or want to delegate the responsibility & decision making to a professional. The only warning would be that cameras & crews can ding up your house and existing painting a bit.
