They just wrapped the 2nd EHM in 2 yrs within 15 min. from my house. This one has caused quite a lot of backlash though. The family has 6 kids, mom is a teacher, dad owns a tree business. The home was pretty big, had some mold issues but they are in a flood zone. They also had another building on the property that was a wrestling gym. The 2 sons go to one of the most expensive private schools in the city. Around 20k for both. The last makeover people were thrilled for the family. This time, most are pretty pissed. The dad has a hernia he can't pay to fix. They have neglected their home and health for private school and wrestling. Most episodes I've seen the homes are neglected due to poverty from a sick child and medical bills or something. I doubt they will mention the private school when the show airs. What do you think?Answer Question

That's wrong on so many levels!! I agree with you OP--of ALL the hardworking families struggling right now in this crappy economy and dealing with historically high unemployment (which will continue to worsen), the show's producers were only able to find a family that is typical of the people who caused much of this crisis--living well beyond their means, haivng more children than they can afford, all while trying to keep up with the Joneses, and not having any "rainy day funds" when things don't go according to plan???
I'm surprised they were even selected! This would be a "jump the shark" moment if ever I saw one!

I don't think about it much. I don't watch it.
I have heard about families that have had their homes made over and their taxes increase so much that they couldn't afford the house any longer. It's a nice idea, but instead of creating a lavish home that the owners can't afford to keep maybe they should look at the home owner's financial bottom line and build something accordingly so that they can life comfortably with the blessings they receive.
