Four Houses ( x 60′) – This new competition series follows four proud homeowners who are invited to preview, critique and score each other’s homes for the chance to win $10,000 and an opportunity to be featured in Better Homes and Gardens magazine.
Each episode features design-obsessed homeowners as they vie to impress the other three contestants with their unique decor and personal style. The contestants will have the chance to snoop around each home and give their frank – and often harsh – opinions before awarding the home an overall impression score out of ten and ranking it for originality, style and livability. The homeowner with the highest total score takes home the $10,000 grand prize, an opportunity to be featured in Better Homes and Gardens magazine-and of course, bragging rights.
From contemporary and shabby chic to traditional and funky, each episode peeks through the keyhole of homes that are as weird and wonderful as their occupants. The premiere episode heads to New Jersey, where stay-at-home Mom Jen puts her classic Princeton manor up against real estate professional Bruce’s cliff-side home, along with Polish artist Mishka’s European lodge and local artist Ricky’s provocative, quirky mansion in the woods. Each of these homeowners is convinced their home is the best, but only one house will come up on top. May the best house win!
