It isn't just Bryan and Sarah Baeumler who are overwhelmed and frustrated by the massive amount of renovation work that they have decided to undertake when they bought the old, rundown resort in the Bahamas. The couple has a lot at stake, as they poured all their life savings into the purchase and restoration of the resort. Their big plan involved purchasing the resort and then renovating it within six months, following which they planned on opening the doors to tourists. 

But after stepping foot into the resort, they realized that they may have bitten a lot more than they could chew. The amount of work needed was way more than they ever anticipated. The resort was in a terrible state with rust and termites everywhere. Despite feeling anxious and overwhelmed, the couple took on the massive project and began working on renovating the sprawling resort. 

Considering the stakes were so high, Sarah and Bryan soon began reeling under the immense pressure and stress that came with the work. The couple began fighting constantly and every little thing became a bone of contention between the two. HGTV shows are generally known for their relaxed vibe, but 'Renovation Island' doesn't seem to be fitting into the mold. As fans who watched the show complained of stress and anxiety after watching the show.

A fan tweeted, "I can’t watch #RenovationIsland it stresses me tf out. Does anything good ever happen or they just stay arguing and finding problems? #HGTV." Another fan wrote, "Just watching #RenovationIsland stresses me out, but I haven't seen anyone lose it yet." Another said, "Seriously. #RenovationIsland stresses me OUT." Another fan expressed, "Is there anything more stressful than watching @Bryan_Baeumler unload a shipping container on #RenovationIsland?!"

"#RenovationIsland. This show stresses me out. Termites are the worst," pointed out a fan. "If you’d like to really push your stress level just for fun during this pandemic I highly recommend HGTV’s Renovation Island," joked a fan. Another fan revealed, "Yikes.
