'House Hunters: Comedians on Couches': JB Smoove yells 'ballers' as rich couple fixates on waterfront villa
Along with Dan Levy and Natasha Leggero, the trio 'lose it' as mother Cindy declares that she wants to raise chickens in her new mansion
HGTV premiered the final episodes from its quarantine edition special 'House Hunters: Comedians on Couches' – a play on HGTV's phenomenally long-running series 'House Hunters' which everyone loves making fun of. It's been on the air since 1999 and is a smashing success. For years the audiences have consumed episode after episode of the show, yelling at their TVs while watching couples on their homebuying experience that is often laced with over-the-top demands. With the advent of the internet and eventually social media, the noisy reviews shifted to social media and there's no count of how many friendships have been forged on Twitter solely based on their love for how much they hate the homebuyers and their choices.
As an ode to how the audiences feel towards their show, HGTV decided to put their own spin to it. That is when they decided to bring in comedians Natasha Leggero and Dan Levy to host a virtual watch party for their comedian friends and provide a no-holds-barred commentary. The four-day special series with two back-to-back episodes per day aired its final episodes tonight. On the first episode comedian, American actor-comedian-writer, JB Smoove, joined Levy and Leggero to watch the episode titled "Waterfront Wanted in Florida". At the center of it was a middle-aged couple, Ralph and Cindy, with three kids and 14 grandkids wanting to buy a million-dollar mansion. They already lived in a grand house but it had its own problems, for example, too much walking between the house and their pool. They also wanted a four-car garage, a large space for entertaining their sizeable family and not having a dock as part of the house was a dealbreaker for them. Also closet space, huge closet space is what Cindy wasn't ready to compromise on. While already having set out a huge budget for the purchase, Cindy also wanted a house where she could customize certain elements to suit her needs. This meant another couple of thousands of dollars and JB Smoove thought that this couple was straight-up "ballers" for having such needs while Leggero sarcastically quipped that she "could totally relate to them". The comedians also couldn't stop laughing at Cindy for wanting to raise chickens in the new house. The trio lost it when Cindy declared the names of her yet-to-be-bought chickens.
