House Hunters International Post Airing

I miss our home!

I miss our home!

Well I have to say….after watching the episode live {with very poor streaming quality at 6:30am} as well as a couple times now with our official DVD copy…I have to say it turned out as good as I could have hoped.

Good looking couple there...

I totally called that they would include the bit of me jumping up and down yelling, “Sheep! Sheep!” I mean, how could they not? Despite the fact that NONE of those houses were by sheep…. I’m a little sad that there’s so much in each house {well, not the first one. That one sucked. You missed nothing in that flat} that you didn’t get a chance to see- like an awesome chicken coup and office rooms and additional bedrooms. And they had no shots of our great “going away” party other than my mother chewing E’s ass out about making sure she has an en suite {I smell a spinoff}. But I guess you have 22 minutes to fit in 5+ days of filming…I also feel a bit sorry for them as we are terribly awkward it seems when we are forced to repeat lines and make really long, awkward pauses in the middle of our sentences. Well, what can you do?

This is right when I told E to get a helmet....

But really, I’m pretty pleased. Well, could have been more pleased if the world didn’t see angsty teenage lb.

I don’t think we looked terrible {although the pieces from the last 2 days of filming, our noses are definitely red, we’re definitely exhausted, and we’re definitely sick as hell!} I don’t think it was edited in a way where people at home had a lot of fuel to hate us on. E wasn’t an awful bad guy and I didn’t come off as an entitled bitch {at least I don’t think}. We were actually pretty boring to watch I’m assuming…no big disagreement or confrontation. But I can only assume we had more viewers than the NBA finals that night even though I didn’t stop my feet and demand more closet space for my shoes.

Naturally, we make big decisions standing in front of epic coastline and castle ruins.

Would I do it again? Sure! And I just might on our next move. I have on good word that they love having repeat offenders…if we’re lucky and get assigned somewhere else abroad I would love to do another HHI. Especially now that I know the ropes. I would actually love to do it again now in our new old house church. It would make for a much more exciting episode. Not only are there sheep but ghosts too!

What did you think about our episode? Would you ever do a show like House Hunters?

Did you miss our fabulous first airing? It’s okay, there’s always repeats! Our show will be replaying on Tuesday, August 4th at 9:30pm Central and Wednesday, August 5th at 12:30 Central on HGTV – in case you want to hear me yelling about sheep some more.   You can check for other airings right HERE.

 

Sheep!  Sheep!  At least they got a shot of my big, ole american chompers.
