Well Pam, you might want to turn away from my post too.
I can't help but feel deeply offended by some of the things I hear from some of these HOs about how much they hate what was done and seeing how this team went bonkers trying to capture some of her home village, to have her poop on their efforts is really disheartening and makes me feel absolutely sick for the team that busted their butts.
Why sign up for Monster House if you expect practical, aesthetically pristine designs that always operate perfectly with no further effort on the HOs part? Basically, you're signing up to be a lab rat, to have your house subjected to every wild and crazy idea of Steve and the design team. This fits right in with the Survivor/Osten analogy - if you can't handle a month and a half on a tropical island with bugs, snakes and not a lot of food, then why apply to be on the show? If you want Miss Manners to come in and slipcover your couch, build you an entertainment center and install a new chef's stove, you don't call Monster House.
I cried at the end of this ep when the HO got to see her mom and now reading her comments about the show and her house, I feel cheated and pretty disgusted. If she thought all of those things, that's fine. But to say them is a pretty low-class hit to the people who worked so hard to do something nice for her.
Bah, I'm liking this show less and less the more I hear about how the HO's like to get together and complain about their houses.
