Can I just take a second to give a HUGE thanks to everyone who tweeted, commented, emailed, and texted me about the House Hunters episode? Every single one of you is so, so appreciated!
Leading up to 10pm last Thursday, I was a nervous wreck.
What if I look fat?
What if I look like a grease monkey (oily skin = grease monkey)?
What if they make me look super dumb?
What if people say mean things after watching the show?
Because these thoughts were running through my mind, Jamie came over for moral support
I’ll be honest, the first time we were shown on screen, I literally screamed. Like a, HOLY SHIT! THIS IS REAL! I’M SO NERVOUS! kind of scream.
Due to laughing at ourselves and thinking about all the scenes that were left out, I only half processed the show. Therefore, I watched it again the next morning
I think House Hunters did a great job capturing our genuine personalities. Sure, while some parts were semi-rehearsed (i.e. walking up to each house) our interactions with one another were for the most part, “real.”
And, yes, Cory does have a thing for comfort-height, elongated toilets.
But, no, that’s not ALL he talked about. That, my friends, is comical editing.
What else is comical? Not only did we end up with our dream home, we ended up with our dream neighbors.
This was on our mailbox bright and early the morning after the show aired:
On the seat: “[Our neighborhood] where all your dreams come true!”
The following day, this showed up:
I still haven’t figured out who this prankster is!!
While I have been recognized by a few strangers (“This is going to sound weird, but were you on TV last night?” and “I’m so glad he got the toilets!”) the paparazzi have yet to show themselves.
Maybe I’ll just have to wait until next week’s Us Weekly Stars, They Just Like Us! feature.
